Who are the faggots who WANT this... on the consumer side of things, I mean.
The same IoS (Ineternet of Sheeple) that want their garage door, light bulbs and door locks on the internet because marketing told them they do.
If Ellen Pao is involved, I'm rooting for the other side
Ah yes, the maturity level of a twelve year old typical of many Slashdot posters, and moderators too evidently.
Pretty much the maturity level of Project Include towards Y Combinator, wouldn't you say? Or is it only considered childish if it's against something you support?
This is just infrastructure nothing more.
If you don't know how the IoT infrastructure differs from roads and horse carriages, you really have no business being on a tech site. This has the potential to do serious damage to the very infrastructure it's connected to, not to mention the privacy and security of anyone within range.
What Google needs to go is provide an easy way to eliminate Pinterest results. That god damn site is taking over search restults, and it's useless without signing up.
an aggressive move to help kill the desktop market to drive people towards using devices google makes more $ off of
I highly doubt there's over one percent of desktop users who would give up the desktop because they can't use Google reliably any longer. What I foresee is someone (perhaps one if these desktop using dinosaurs?) developing a Google mobile search plugin for browsers.
Cut out the inflammatory foods (grains), and you won't have to worry so much about clogging up your arteries. Without the cracks and crevices in your arteries, there's nowhere for the buildup to take hold.
Also, plant based protein is not the same as animal based, and, as carnivores, we need animal based protein.
If I understand what the problem is, Samsung tried to squeeze the battery into a slightly too thin phone. While this might not present a problem out of the box, nor for the vast majority of owners, all it would take to cause a failure is to bend over to pick something up with the phone in your back pocket. This might not cause an immediate failure, nor a failure be caused by only one flexing of the phone, but I can see many of them developing this problem over time. I think they made the right call. It seems to be a design problem with the phone, and it's too late to redesign and relaunch a new one.
IMHO phones are getting too thin for lithium ion batteries. They need to stiffen the bodies or find a safer power source.
But won't Note 7 customers burned by Samsung *already* be looking at Apple now?
Of course they will, they have no choice. Everyone know the only two phone manufacturers are Samsung and Apple.
Oh, wait! For most people, it's the Android experience they're after. Kind of hard to get that while walled up in the Apple jail.
