Comment Re:"Adding no Value" (Score 1) 327

If they didn't add value to it then people would not be going through Apple EVERY MONTH for the convenience. Same thing with people paying $8+ to Time Warner for a modem rental. If the price is too high and there is an alternative to do things cheaper it is up to the consumer to make that decision. Should the consumer opt for convenience at a price it is up to them.

I'd add Tiki Wiki to the list of there for ones worth considering. It has way way too many features, but is really nice for getting just about anything going. Typo3 is an amazing product, but I personally find Tiki Wiki to be easier for someone who doesn't want to do any programming and knows just enough web to properly install scripts, database, etc. and do some markup. Typo3 is a great solution if you have the time to learn it and maintain it, but I'd personally say that if all you are trying to do is a favor job for someone you can get Tiki Wiki going and working acceptably for plebs and not have any trouble maintaining it and updating it. Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress all feel very inefficient to me for groupware software. They are easier to get going, but I find them annoying to actually use.

A little bit. The author as stated in the article is also the author of the sync tool, Syncoid and does consulting. He doesn't really have a horse in the race for the company he's reviewing and his tools are looking to support Btrfs, so he's not necessarily married too ZFS or the solution the company the review is mostly about. Actually pretty nice article to read.

From some of the benchmarks in the article it didn't seem like rsync had any strength over syncoid, other than his tool requiring ZFS on both ends while rsync being more flexible.

More likely make more promises to give out the worst possible internet to people who weren't making them any money in the first place and put them on 7th tier of customer service. They don't care about their customers that pay out the nose, they really don't care about the ones who get off on the cheap that they use as a betting chip when getting areas to cooperate with their bad business.

Only reason I can think to stick with your stock firmware is that you have to (not available for phone, on a CDMA network where you need to update with a proprietary software item that doesn't work on third party firmwares). I have seven unlock options on my GS3 and prefer to use the "None" option.
