It would be ludicrous to focus on getting young engineers for a project like this.
Not to mention that it's an offensively age-ist thing to do.
Which is of great comfort to the owners of medical imagers that are now junk unless someone catches and rolls back the anniversary edition. There is claimed to be a fix in the pipe.
If you're running a medical imager and you're auto-installing patches willy-nilly without thoroughly testing them, then you're doing it wrong. I don't care what OS you're running, that's just negligent.
Is nothing sacred anymore? Are we really nothing more than market research tools and products to be sold to the highest bidder anymore? Look, if you give me something for free, I don't think it's necessarily unreasonable to ask for something in return (provided you disclose that you're collecting that data). But if I'm paying for it, then please just stop. I'm the customer, not the product.
Are you suggesting that people with old cars should buy new ones to stop criminals from taking a hammer to the windshield? The problem is not the victim's phone. The problem is the phone company's refusal to address the problem.
It's great as long as you don't have an analog line, like the vast majority of home phone users. If you have a regular POTS then the service isn't available.
Too many producers of consumer electronics completely ignore the software side of things. From bad UI design to security, in their rush to market they skimp on the things that make that sort of thing worthwhile.
Agreed. I have no problem with them showing ads and trailers, but they should be legally obligated to provide the actual starting time of the feature film as well -- so if I don't want to see that stuff, I can come 25 minutes "late" or whatever.
It's pretty easy to estimate when the feature will start, so you can skip the ads if you want, but if you wait to go in you're going to end up sitting in either the front row or the back row. So, your choice is either crappy seats or spoilers. Personally, I've started bringing in headphones. Closing my eyes and drowning out the trailers has vastly improved my movie-going experience. It's nice to see a movie without already knowing every major plot point in advance.
I used to love going to the theater but it sucks now. It's too expensive, too crowded, and I don't want to watch 15 minutes of product endorsements followed by 20 minutes of spoilers for upcoming films before they get around to showing the feature.
Mr. Cameron, you say you want to "preserve the theater experience as something special" but it hasn't been "special" in twenty years. It's the entertainment industry's version of going to the airport. It's only a matter of time before they start adding backscatter body scanners and abusive TSA (Theater Security Agency) officers.
but at the very least [Nintendo] actually recognize that their customers are human beings who play games for fun, they aren't fleshbags with coin purses.
I bet there's more than one shareholder lawsuit out of this. It suggests that the board was negligent in conducting due diligence.
"Oh, sure, we'll fix it for free, but you have to bring it to our repair facility in Tucson. Oh, by the way, our single qualified technician is backlogged six months. If your crops can't wait six months, we do offer a premium value-added repair service that includes same-day onsite repairs..."
Joseph McCarthy already tried all of that and it was a goddamn disaster for obvious reasons. Maybe you should get your head out of your ass. It's time for you to retire from politics and let the adults handle it now.
"Good news, and the stock is up 12% after hours as a result."
Well...good news except for the 6500 people you just fired. But as long as you got paid, that's all that matters, eh, Mr Investor?
Tripwire (and tripwire-like software such as bit9/Carbon Black) has been a thing for years. What's different about this approach?
