It didn't last long -- Spotify quickly posted that they'd identified "the source of the problem."
Yeah well, you fucked up people's computers. How about you offer to let the affected people contact you, so you can make sure and reimburse them to get their computers reinstalled?
What I really miss about macOS is the concept of a cellular connection. I've never understood why iPads have a cellular option, but Macs don't. Now using the iPhone as a hotspot is very easy but even then, why doesn't the Mac have a data-saving feature of some sorts?
The article doesn't seem to be about offline so much as not working. FTFA:
For me, this means abstaining from work and, in the deepest sense, simply resting
Now this guy owns a business. I can see that it'd be hard to not work. I own a business myself, and when starting, I was dumb enough to take on fixed-price projects. Combined with partly outsourcing to India, you can imagine I worked weekends.
However when I stopped doing those projects and only did on-site (billed per hour) work, I had a real weekend.
Where in Europe? The open market does not mean that everything is priced the same everywhere. At least in the Netherlands, I don't think you can get 70 Mbit/s for 16 EUR/mo. The lowest tier is about 20 EUR for 10 Mbps ADSL including phone or 30 Mbps without.
Hooray! A security feature exclusive to Windows 10 Enterprise customers. That will substantially cut down on the actual difference this makes.
Actually that could influence a lot of Slashdot readers. There's plenty of slashdotters working for the man, because that's where a lot of interesting jobs are. Unfortunately, Microsoft not giving an API for sandboxing will probably mean that these slashdotters will have to use Edge, because lots of Windows sysadmins will outlaw other browsers besides Edge
The first thing I tried to do, is launch Win98. That worked. Then with Internet Explorer, go to Fabrice Bellard's site again and launch Windows 98 inside the VM. But now IE wants to install a modem first
I'm working on a small mixed Objective-C/Swift project. The API was provided, and is in Objective-C so no changes there. The UI code (i.e. all view controllers) are all in Swift, and consist of about ~30 classes. Moving from Swift 2.3 to 3 was quite easy with the migration tool, and took me about two hours.
I can usually push and manage to get something installed, but typically I don't want to do that.
Exactly. This is also the reason I started using vi. I've never used a Unix system that didn't have it installed. You typically want to save sysadmin time for something really important.
I did once (July) install an app with that name, but there are many with the same name on the Play store. I uninstalled it the next day because it was crap. Screenshots look familiar, but I'm not sure.
At least I don't see any suspicious files with setuid permissions, but then:
Hey I remember you from Starfighter! You brought out a new game?! That's frikkin' awesome, I might just buy an Android phone to play this one.
if I could buy a macbook pro line with a few more ports I absolutely would.
That is one thing I have to admit; Apple is lessening the choice. There's the MacBook Pro line, but it's for everyone. There isn't a "real pro" line with more ports.
While I personally have done customer facing presentations with my laptop; many of my peers who don't do that much still do presentations internally to business units, at meetings, etc. Would we all pay $10 more and put up with our laptop being 2mm thicker for a gigabit port, another USB port, and another video port type? Hell yeah. And 9$ of that 10 would still be profit for apple.
I've seen IT-support tie-wrap an adapter to the beamer connector. But yes, if you're regularly off-site, it's annoying as hell. I disagree with there being a lot of people wanting a 2mm thicker laptop, but that's really a personal opinion. The strange thing is, that the first MacBook Air had a clever small port for ethernet connectors and it never came back. But it's definitely possible. Perhaps it was too fragile, too costly or their stats show that hardly anyone used them?
But how much does this actually happen? Do you need a video out port for that conference room weekly? Monthly?
And perhaps more importantly, how common is your job? Are you a presales-engineer, that you need to be in both the datacenter as well as in customer conference rooms?
I don't get this; why care about the amount of ports?
The only place where you need any amount of ports, is at a desk right? So I assume you have a desk with a non-bluetooth keyboard, mouse, printer, TimeMachine harddrive, maybe an iPad, monitor, etc. Then the only thing you need is a USB hub. You put the Macbook on the desk, connect power, USB and displayport, and you're done.
If a train station is a place where a train stops, what's a workstation?
