Should Computers Be Disposable?
No and especially not macs. If they never broke or were "future-proof" it wouldn't make much difference but despite the advertising to the contrary they simply aren't THAT good.
As if there isn't enough carnage on the highways by people who can't seem to navigate 2 dimensional space. If they were being flown by computers that don't make errors then maybe but if it's by the ordinary fallible people then no.
I work for a company that still uses XP and has no plans to upgrade until, I suppose, the 2014 date. Our IT vendor does all the upgrading and is, apparently, in no rush to upgrade us. It's a lot less work for them presumably.
Is this just for those in government contracted positions? Otherwise what is the US gov't interfering in this for? Who is being protected by this legislation who actually needs protection? This is bizarre.

I hope their "proposal" is rejected as the bad idea that it is. Mind you, it just encourages me and everyone else to dump this monopoly in favour of other ones that are less obnoxious. I.e. other domain registries e.g. country codes or.org or whatever.
Curious. Surely he doesn't have a passport from Canada still? That would just be silly. Does he vote? I hope he does but not in Canadian elections. He doesn't live in Canada and hasn't for 50 years. He has spent all of his life, essentially, in the USA. I'd say that makes him an American or perhaps a Canadian-American.
I guess my question for Mr. Shatner would be, "Are you a Canadian actor? And, if so, explain the rationale for that designation."
