That's true, but has anyone bothered to do it yet? Cars have had electronic throttles for quite a few years now, and I haven't heard of that feature.
Toyota? See: Smart Stop Technology.
Actually, after the Toyota scandal, I'd be surprised if it wasn't standard on all cars with electronic throttle.
What is the most disturbing part of this story is it seems that box.com doesn't have any major infrastructure for backup of users data. I would have thought that it would be as simple as pressing a button "undelete" for the box.com support people to restore last available data before deletion.
Well, maybe they do. As the Fine Article says, he did get his data back. It just took them a while to figure out the chain of events that caused it to disappear in the first place.
Yes, please, lets mention them. Or wait, we can't because they haven't been stopped. Anyone who had difficulty one day, has been able to get through later that day or the next day at worst. Remind me again what your dictionary has listed for "disaster"?
"Anyone"? It only takes a single counterexample to disprove that, and here I am. I signed up for an account on Oct 1--took me a couple of tries, but I was eventually able to do it. Got my confirmation email, confirmed it, and my account should be active. However, I have never been able to actually log in. When I try, I get a red error message under the username/password boxes saying, "The information you entered isn't valid. Review this information." If I use the "Forgot Password" link in an attempt to reset my password and enter my username, I get an email with a password reset link--so my username is obviously in the DB and associated with the right email address. But when I click that link, I get a page that tells me that "We weren't able to process your request because we couldn't find a Marketplace profile that matched the information that you provided." Wut.
And although it only takes a single counterexample to disprove a universal, I'm certainly not the only person having the exact same problem. Do a web search for those error messages and you'll find many others saying the same thing.
Have you ever tried that, asshole?
Which is easier: getting your local idiot bankers to roll back a fraudulent debit, or doing a VISA chargeback?
Why yes, I've done both, and they were about equally easy. Someone printed up some checks with my account info, and pretty much all merchants turn checks in to ACH debits these days. I called up Bank of America, they looked at the check images and other stuff, agreed that the checks were fraudulent, transferred my money to a new account (including the amount that was fraudulently debited), and mailed me an affidavit to fill out, sign, and send back. The main difference with a VISA chargeback is that depending on the situation, they might not insist on sending a new card with a new number--however, I suspect if the amounts involved were the same as in the check fraud case (almost $2000), I would've gotten a new card number.
I think the point is the browser in Windows Phone DOESNT SUPPORT HTML5 YOUTUBE.
Then you think incorrectly, since that is false.
Unlike Amazon's bullshit system, Newegg ships us reviewers the product itself that we can keep for free and then we write a review about it.
In what way is that unlike Amazon's system?
That strikes me as a tad bit more restrictive than calling a driver's license a 'privilege.' (A privilege now required to vote in Texas.)
That's not actually true--you definitely don't need a driver's license to vote in Texas.
I'm counting all devices here, not just PCs.
I was replying to Sable Drakon, who said, "But DisplayPort and Thunderbolt aren't in common deployment on PCs
No, DisplayPort and Thunderbolt aren't widely deployed.
I don't know when you last looked at video cards, but pretty much all of them have had DisplayPort for the last 2 or 3 years. NewEgg currently lists almost 300 video cards that have at least one DP or mini-DP connector: here are the 195 that have exactly one DP connector.
