Exactly! Look at how nobody at all bought ipods and iphones and how the Nomad is what everyone uses!
They are so freaking lame....
I just go and grab the torrent if I missed it.
What needs to change is BULLSHIT copyright laws.
OK, but you won't like it. That will mean the software doesn't release until the lead programmer says so. No ifs ands or buts. If management presses too hard on that issue, THEY go to jail. Expect prices to get a lot higher and development time to multiply. Provide a high quality hardware platform or no go. No substituting hardware later or you invalidate the sign-off. Expect to have a computer dedicated to that application and that application only. Be sure to get any thing added to the LAN approved...
Yep. I really wanted a tesla until they started the Scumbag operating proceedures like charging $3000 to enable a software function that already exists in the car.
Elon must be starting to slide into EVIL land with this cisco esque bullshit
...and the "cloud" -- if it's in the "cloud", someone else owns it. Even when they tell you you own it.
It's not on your hardware, it's not on your software, it's not in your storage, it's not on your premises, and you have zero control over any of the actual foregoing locations / instances.
But hey, everyone, keep that cloud-ward stampede going. They love ya for it.
All they could do to stop you from doing is voiding your warranty.
Perhaps not. As I understand it, the car is connected in order to facilitate software upgrade / maintainance. So they could tell the car it couldn't drive the next time you parked it for ten minutes, for instance.
I imagine that would land them in court -- but technically speaking, they could do it.
Your post pairs nicely with your signature.
If you think it's there to protect the computer and OS you are horribly uneducated about it.
It's there to protect the precious software IP from dirty evil YOU. so you cant disable DRM and make a copy.
That is the only reason this crap exists in modern processors. Intel is King of DRM and they are trying to keep it that way.
If it makes Windows solid, with no crashes and spyware? Sure bring it on, can't be any worse than what Google and Apple are doing.
And if you are saying this "cuz Linux" I honestly do not care, Linux can DIAF because for 20+ damned years we have watched the Linux community fuck themselves up and shoot themselves in the face over and over AND OVER with one dumb as fuck move after another. I swear after dealing with Linux for the better part of a decade I am now sure its run from bizzaroland, where the devs go "quick things am starting to get stable and users am happy! We must rip out major subsystem so the OS is sent backwards half a decade and will take years just to get back to where it was, then users will feel they am 'leet' if they can just get the thing to run! Aren't we am smart?"
So at this point I have zero fucks to give, if Billy came back and put out an OS that run was well as XP X64 or Win 7 X64? He could be as big a douchenozzle as he wanted, I have zero doubt you'd have hundreds of millions lining up to sing his praises after 3 stinkers in a row. Again couldn't be any worse than Google with their rigging search results to support their political investments and putting more and more APIs behind the Playwall or Apple hiring companies to make its products that treat workers so badly they had to put suicide nets outside the factories to keep visitors from being hit by falling workers.
Sparta? This... this is Sparta, you say? Then... then... YES! YES!
They brought news about the trash can mac "pro." What else could be done?
No standard USB ports?!?!?
OK, thanks for RTFA because I didn't, but let's now get at how this deserves a fine of $48 million? Especially if we're talking about the "top 3 percent," which could easily be interpreted as people who are abusing the service?
Seriously? This is a joke... I mean, who thought sending a mission to Mars would be this hard?
