Re: Why are you giving them ideas?
Um...I believe that would be called a "groundbreaking new feature".
Apples innovation clearly died with Jobs

Why are we all thinking of this as "If robots took all our jobs RIGHT now what on earth would we do" because as AI takes our jobs, and it will, economic policies and ideals will shift, values will change, prices will come down as will wants, the world would have changed so much as would your way of thinking and lifestyle etc that your concerns are moot.
Imagine not having to live in the city, pay city prices just because it's close to your job...and that's just the start...if the machines don't decide we've become irrelevant.
"In order to be effective, data-aware storage should have some basic characteristics:"
1. Forget everything you think you know, all middle management must go etc etc
The simple fact is most companies are running legacy data implementations decades old and management will only learn the latest buzzwords to look good to the overlords, but almost never bother trying to actually bring the technology in line with the companies "vision" or at the very least the 21st century, as an example, the last 6 clients I've had, have all been running oracle 10g on the "most efficient" snowflake design but constantly complain about performance and their developers complaining because .Net 4.6 won't work with ODP 10.0.2 etc etc. When I suggest they upgrade and considder redesigning...I get the same response every time, it'll cost too much
Oh yet more laws from the nanny state that is Australia!
I do agree mobile phone use while driving is a big problem, I've seen many an idiot cause accidents while on their phones, had a women rear end me last week(very slowly in traffic) because she decided to move forward without bothering to look up from her phone. She even apologized for being on her phone!
But i have a blutooth car kit and never need to look at my phone, people just need to be more clued up.
Look at all your down votes, I think you might have struck a nerve with the Android fannys.
I love how this actually made the news, Apple's staggering of updates, when 200 million people try to hit up a server for a pretty big download all at the same time you'd be hard pressed to find a company that doesn't have issues with that...oh wait there aren't any with a user base like that (Windows doesn't count, never works anyway).
Brilliant, although last time I tried "You pick one(of the 30 or so) and I'll tell you" didn't really work, turns out a sense of humor is not something blue chip companies look for in a contractor.
I for one hate the way some companies try to align themselves with certain methodologies like it make's a real life difference, if you're incompetent and lazy you will fail, no amount of S/W methodology will help you.
If you're skilled, organised and use common sense...problem solved.
Hahahahahaha...seriously these fools spend so much time and money pursuing these "Evil torrent sites" you have to wonder if they have any idea at all of how it all works, my 8 year old nephew laughed when his father told him he couldn't download music anymore as their ISP blocked these torrent sites, he then went on to tell me he hadn't used those in 3 years, his words were "Torrents are so last decade old man" and I'm only 30.
Apple release another product with a major fault...quality control must have kicked it along with Mr Jobs.
The issue with the HDMI output for the HD4000 was well known by Intel and has been acknowledged by other manufacturers using it in their offerings and Apple still went ahead and released something with known issues. Intel must have made all sorts of promises.
It's no secret Jobs and Cook didn't see eye to eye at all, it's all in his autobiography.
This reeks of a "Ha! They think he screwed up, now's my chance to fire him, no questions asked!" bitter sweet victory for Cook. Of course this is pure speculation on my part, but where there's been smoke for so long you're bound to find fire.
I just hope Ives can deliver on iOS7.
I did the same, but it took 2 months of raging before they bumped my up after I called up to cancel my contract stating they were in breach of contract(I had NO www connection for days at a time) and I wasn't going to pay a cent for early cancellation.
Everyone on the 10/20Mb package should try something similar.
"If I played Need for Speed, and I'm handed the key to a Porsche, does that make me want to get in it and drive like a maniac and run people over? No."
What need for speed has this guy been playing??? I tried running people over but I bounce off the invisible barrier, also driving a fast car...fast and running people over are two different things entirely. Unless cars are now considered weapons...
It's funny that HSBC are so obviously cutting back in departments that actually count and yet they're making billions laundering money for middle eastern dictatorships(or not)...typical upper management..."Testers...surely the developers we outsourced in India do enough testing!" Even though their contract clearly stipulates they are responsible for development only.
Just speculating...and yes I'm a dev in a department who's just had our budget slashed by those 'up there' because they don't think it's necessary. Apparently quality control is so 20th century.
With the price of SD cards being next to nothing now a days and the SD medium being around for so long how bout just storing your pics on sd cards and labelling them accordingly, then when you want to view em just plug the card into your smart tv/iPad/laptop/desktop/projector and away you go.
But then there are other peoples pictures of you on holiday etc, you still want those, again the SD card comes in handy when the next time you visit said friend you just take the SD card in question and dump all/some of their pics on.
