Comment "forced" upgrades (Score 1) 231

The mobile manufacturers know that most people refresh their phones as soon as the contract is up and if there aren't "new and improved" features for the new lineup of phones, they are going to be left behind.

I also doubt intel is intentionally "allowing hardware innovation to stagnate"


Justice Not As Blind As Previously Thought 256

NotSoHeavyD3 writes "I doubt this is much of a surprise but apparently Cornell University did a study that seems to show you're more likely to get convicted if you're ugly. From the article: 'According to a Cornell University study, unattractive defendants are 22 percent more likely to be convicted than good-looking ones. And the unattractive also get slapped with harsher sentences — an average of 22 months longer in prison.'"

Comment Why such hatred? (Score 1) 255

Seriously, I don't know why people have this loathing of Notes/Domino. It's proven to be secure, the mass mailing worms never worked, had a tabbed interface long before any browser, had a document library way before sharepoint, you can customize the crap out of your application / email, and build in a work flow to meet your business needs.

Not to mention that in the years I administered a Domino server (6.5 on Linux) not once did the server crash, go flakey, or some other problem.

Granted, I've been out of the Notes / Domino world for quite a while now and haven't really seen R7 or R8, but R6.5 was pretty damn good, especially if you'd seen R4.

So, seriously, why such hatred?
