I'd propose Mac Book D'ongle.
I prefer a practical laptop over one that requires you to carry around a lot of adapters and dongles to get stuff done.
Same here. It requires a special kind of stupid to associate "new" with "good" unconditionally.
It's actually quite a common kind of stupid called 'inexperienced'. Never experiencing the fallout of bad decisions, makes the hipsters try any idea, good or bad.
"The F-35 program has a proven track record of solving issues as they arise, and we're confident we'll continue to do so."
That's newspeak for "this program had an abnormal amount of bad problems."
Also good news that the total cost diminishes with time, 1 trillion to 0.4 trillion in two years time. By 2018 it will be for free.
That is a minor consideration next to the fact that HP's build quality and specs are shit.
I think you misread the logo as "HP" - it's "liji". And I'm convinced soon, they will actually make it look like "shit". Honesty in marketing, great idea.
How did they know to put "BC" on the EOY General Journal?
Well after several thousands of years counting backwards, everybody knew it stood for "Backwards Counting" - it looked like a great idea in 5000 BC
Sometimes a driver simply isn't available for Linux, QNX, VxWorks or other embedded OSes.
That is actually the best argument to avoid such hardware. Rely on hardware that is open standards based, then you can reduce dependency on proprietary drivers
The reason they have to stay with XPe is because there probably aren't any drivers for Vista/Win7/Win8/Win8.1 So much for the benefit of reusing XP drivers
I'm not sure, but was the KDE 4.0 disaster in 2008 not started for the same ONE reason?
It made me switch to Gnome...
In this Belgian journal article (dutch), he mentions he is sorry his colleague Robert Brout can not share and celebrate with him. He died in 2011.
Also, we should just get rid of the ignition keys for cars, since some of them can be hot wired. On an unrelated note, whereabouts is you car?
You fail to understand the problem, in a car YOU have the key, with UEFI, a great deal of organisations (MS, BIOS vendor, MB vendor, HW vendors like Dell/HP/Lenovo/...) have the key to your computer - we dislike the fact that as the rightfull owners of those computers, we seem to be the only ones NOT having a key.
If you want a car analogy, it is more like not having a "key" for the filler cap, wheel bolts, engine,... You can start, you can drive, but you can not replace parts, use other fuel supplier, do your own maintenance. There might even be restrictions on where you can drive to.
>An "agile" project cannot fail and cost Billions because it must always deliver runnable software with a maximum of a few weeks delay You're literally just saying that a project can't fail because it's supposed to succeed. There's many reasons agile projects can fail. If a team is unable to deliver a working release then the project has failed. Also, if the release works but doesn't incorporate the required functionality then the project has failed.
No he isn't. He is saying "not(p1 AND p2)" p1 is "an agile project can fail" and p2 is "an agile project can cost billions".
An agile projecr can fail in several ways:
Examples of "calling it agile" are: starting to do an analysis round of several man-years filling up a backlog with thousands of stories already estimated to help the development team; analysts that are not willing to validate the "working software" so that the team has to keep guessing for long periods of time;....
You know, 1HP/cu in really isn't all that impressive.
Wasn't it about 40 years ago?
Hackers are just a migratory lifeform with a tropism for computers.
