So your proposal is... do nothing?
Have you tried... not upgrading your phone?
Okay, so we know by now that this isn't actually negative mass.
Would any physicists here care to chime in on whether this particular experiment is any different from the dozens of others that have resulted in Bose Einstein Condensates and, if so, what sets this one apart?
Quiet, you'll upset their gravy train!
Because it's hip counter-productive bullshit that many startups swallow?
It's a bit rich to call it an ad and chuckle about.
No, that's exactly what it is.
It's a lot scary that it's possible for a remote attacker to ask these devices en masse to do something with nothing more than a broadcast ad. For now it was reading a wikipedia page. What happens when scumvertisers and other malicious adversaries figure out a way to make it spend money without your consent? Or to report to them that you have heard the ad, or worse.
It's not scary at all.
That risk already exists, is absurdly obvious, and has been made VERY clear on both tech forums and mainstream media. Anyone with ANY clue about phone security, and this includes people who lock their phone, has already disabled the voice feature so it isn't an issue for them.
It's about as scary as the thought that if you leave your house front door open someone could just walk in.
Because you know that a lot of this kind of scum are beyond rehabilitation.
Until we can get a cure for sociopathy that actually works and something akin to Deep Thought's Point Of View gun at least.
Where I live the vast, vast, VAST majority of workers pay their taxes by PAYE. Vast.
That is, the employer pays the taxes for them and the worker's bank account is simply direct-credited $PAY-$TAX every pay period.
The worker never sees the taxable money nor has to think about it unless they have a change of employment status or some other mitigating factor.
The only other significant tax is sales tax, which is built into the price of every good and service with a few rare exceptions.
This annual circus of "doing your taxes" that we see Americans go through just makes us shake our heads.
In the cloud.
Do you really want bank and government information being processed on some other guy's computer?
I'm not sure how well you've thought this through.
Come on guys, don't take anything Mark Shuttleworth says too seriously at the moment.
We already know he's just making press releases to line up his company for a buy-out, and needs to make his company look like it's not run by neckbeards.
Unless they want to be seen by the world then women, just like men, should never ever get freaky with their partners *on camera*.
You missed that last bit out on purpose, didn't you?
Just to be pedantic, Unity was just a shell for GNOME 3. The horrible desktop environment you're referring to is most likely GNOME Shell, the default shell for GNOME 3 which, to be fair, even the GNOME developers released as a proof-of-concept hoping others would build a graphical shell that was actually usable..
Canonical are just moving Ubuntu from one GNOME 3 shell to another.
...and there are 6 female black software developers?
yes, and 7 of them are in my building right now.
Yes it is, just as much as your Fedora desktop or Debian server are Linux.
It just isn't GNU/Linux.
Take *that*, Richard Stallman.
