Comment SlingTV (Score 2) 96

I subscribe to SlingTV so I can watch college football. Orange package ($20 mo.), Blue package ($20 mo.), and Sports package ($5 mo.) totaling $45. I could probably get by with the Orange and Sports. Sports gets you ESPN{,2,3,U} and SEC Network. You can watch from a desktop or any tablet or phone. You can watch stations in the Blue package on three devices at the same time.

You can also watch games at ESPN Watch. When you sign in, SlingTV is in the dropdown box.

And VNC is shit...it would be much nicer if they implemented RDP or some sort of analog for Quartz. I imagine you could compost Quartz images over RDP or even have WindowServer carry the information over a SSH channel to a local rendering client but we will never see that happen because it is closed source.

$ dnf search rdp
xrdp.x86_64 : Open source remote desktop protocol (RDP) server

$ netstat -anp | grep :3389

I haven't used it much but it works.

Submission + - Man sues Apple after retail employee deletes years worth of photos (bgr.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Deric White, a 68 year-old man from the UK, is suing Apple for approximately $7,500 after an Apple employee at the company’s Regent Street store in London completely wiped White’s iPhone clean, erasing numerous photos and 15 years worth of contacts in the process.

As for how the whole situation arose in the first place, White said that he began seeing messages on his phone indicating that there was a problem with his iPhone 5. Thus far, it isn’t yet known if White was the target of a phishing scam via text message (a growing problem) or if the alert messages in question were legitimate. Regardless, White took his phone in to Apple’s flagship retail store in London to make sure everything was up to speed. As part of the repair process, an Apple Store employee initiated a factory reset.

An interesting wrinkle to the saga is the allegation that White was only asked if had backed up his device after it had already been wiped by an Apple employee.

So, break virtually all MUAs (which send using SMTP), and force everyone to use webmail? Good luck with that.

If they snipe away enough Comcast customers, eventually Comcast has to pull out entirely because they're losing money

If Comcast or anyone has been the monopoly provider for a few years, then they have already re-cooped the cost of their build out. After that it doesn't matter if you're in a "rich" or "poor" neighborhood; the operating costs are the same.
