Given how well the negotiations went to allow hassle-free roaming in remote areas a couple of years back I can't see them making more headway to revisit that with the added inclusion of metro.
What does need to happen is for whichever regulator is appropriate to be given the teeth to go and make it happen
For the low low price these can be had for now with discounts, there's definitely a place for them. Router, media server, sandbox, heck daily driver for most of what I do at moment. One of theirs, as a lightning deal, could be had for AUD115 the other day https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/807667 that's ~60GBP.
The genius was the App Store. Until then Windows Mobile (and SmartPhone before it) were ahead, having the ability to install apps. The App Store, when it arrived, gave iPhone users the ability to easily install their own choice of apps to turn their device into entertainment or whatever. Coupled with basically outsourcing app development to millions of developers and taking 30% of their price the whole setup was brilliant.
I've asked a few people whether suffocation or pancaking would be their preferred ending. The sheer terror of being locked inside a (possibly pitch-black) tube with other people in the same almost certain-death situation would push me to think implosion would be my preference. But a surprising number seem to want to succumb to the lack of oxygen/build-up of CO2.
Very much hoping they've rapidly ascended and are floating around, intact, right-way up and a man with a spanner will be with them shortly.
I feel this pain. Many times ours have to be made-up to fit in advance of the bizarre deadlines set by people 5 timezones ahead of us with different public holidays. And at the same time sending us snot-a-grams about how they're "financial documents" and must be fully accurate and on-time.
It was significant because it, for a lot of people, was the tipping point where Google became a company you couldn't rely on. Now they kill products with such ease and regularity that it's impossible for any consumer to commit to a Google service/product with any assurance it will still be there next month. Google lost a lot more than the user data of Reader users that day.
There are ways to improve that though. I've memorized a 20-something character password generated by a machine and then one of a pair of YubiKeys is required to access my password manager. All browser password managers turned off. I'm sure I could do better, but I'm happy with that security posture for my personal stuff. It's certainly going to be more of a challenge to any would-be attacker than Jonno next door, so hopefully he's the low-hanging fruit
>Devices that only charge wirelessly, like smartwatches, are exempt from the USB-C port requirements.
Always get downvoted to hell when I mention it but I still reckon Apple will just courageously innovate and go portless. The number of people who use the cable for anything other than charging is tiny. And they can make $$$$ on wireless charging kit.
"Retaining our manufacturing talent is a key element of positioning Intel for long-term growth. Voluntary time-off programs allow us an opportunity to reduce short-term costs and offer employees attractive time off options," the statement continued.
Doesn't that basically say "We value our staff. But not enough to pay them properly"?
And as for offering "attractive time off options", I'd be spitting feathers. Attractive for who? Should that be "whom", idk.
I guess if the really toxic dicks get reinstated there it'll keep the alternative platforms a bit safer for a while.
He's resurrecting an army of accounts so bad they were banned even from birdsite, emboldening them to be even worse than before. Wonder when the first cyber-bullying suicide lawsuit will hit.
I don't get why people think CCTV stops burglaries. It might deter someone. But round my way the meth-heads couldn't get less. Because even if the cameras are working and record sufficiently good images to identify the burglars then there's no punishment. Only getting caught 1 in 100 times and having no penalty at all is good going.
