Comment Re:Physical keyboard? (Score 1) 188

Does anybody else use an iPhone as their primary work device?

Short answer, no. On the road my Droid 2 becomes my primary device. I purchased it because of the physical keyboard, but haven't slid the keyboard out in months. I'm just as fast with the on screen keyboard and have no problem responding to e-mails without a physical keyboard.

That being said, my responses from a mobile device tend to be less eloquent and shorter, so for anything requiring long responses I will grab my laptop or sit down at the desktop and hammer it out.

As a frequent traveler, there is quite a bit of truth to the danger of MLK boulevard. While they aren't always in bad neighborhoods, there does seems to be a high frequency of MLK blvd appearing in areas that business travelers would be wise to roll up their windows and lock their doors. Something along the lines of "Liquor store, pawn shop, liquor store, pawn shop, liquor store, OK fellas, time to roll up the windows."

Linksys homeowner AP's have the ability to add time restrictions to wifi access, but that would only work if the basketball and sunday school are on different schedules. Also If you just don't want the guests to have access to your internal network, set up a guest SSID vlan tag it and add a route to go straight out to the internet, doesn't really touch your internal network and in an environment like this its a simple solution that covers due diligence on your part.

Don't get me wrong, love Firefox for smaller sites but the lack of Mozilla handled Group Policy integration (I know there's an add-on somewhere) makes it a no no for me in my larger environments. Perhaps the use of ESR will force the change when they realize more enterprise environments begin to use Firefox.

Right now any company can make an account and answer questions, how will the new change be different besides the financial support to slashdot. Will they be allowed moderation points? Say in which comments float to the top? Actually get to pose the questions (how awesome is adobe reader on a scale from 9-10) I would love to have specifics on this agreement as Slashdot has become a wonderful place for me to come and see unbiased information from the technical community and I would hate to see bias creep into the discussion because of this.

I know this is /. but perhaps a less gadgety would be better. Offer minor savings as incentive for people to read their own meter, and have the meter read by the company every 6 months or a year. A fee + the difference in meter reads could be charged if you falsify as they would know your usage anyway from the company reading. It could even go so far as to have a unique identifier on the meter and require you to e-mail a picture of your meter on x day of every month.
