So how did myself and tons of others upgrade to 3GS models in an apple store?
I left with my 3GS fully activated and able to make calls (with no data synced) and my 2G iphone with no service. No SIM card was changed.
Your phone number can be activated to a different SIM card... in the Apple Store.
Apple has no mechanism to transfer the registration of the SIM card to your phone number and set it up on the new phone.
is just outright wrong.
That makes sense. Common sense is that they bought a site license from an anti-virus vendor.
So how much is that Norton/Symatec/?? license for those 30,000 computers? Is that part of the Windows TCO, the mandatory virus protection and lcoal system firewall?
An answer from most people running windows is that linux systems should also have anti-virus measures in place, but in my limited experience (only ~100 machines), that was never needed since rarely was root access given out to users.
if you have driver problems with the desktop LiveCD... you should use the alternate install CD, it's what it is used for.
"If your computer is not able to run the standard Desktop installation CD, you can use an Alternate installation CD instead. The Alternate CD also allows more advanced installation options which are not available with the Desktop CD. "

even with mobile applications (where you need the information the most).
God that made no sense. s/html/packets

How do you break this down? Are they just pinging twitter.com and waiting for timeouts on html returned?
I ask, because lots of twitter is their distribution via their APIs. How many of those other moblog sites have http GETs to non-html documents? Check for yourself: http://apiwiki.twitter.com/
I wonder how many statuses were updated from facebook.com or pulled there from a twitter API poll. It would be nice if a site like facebook could post their timeouts on their user status polls they do from their site. That might give people more of an idea of the complete twitter uptime.
