Slack is huge in my office (50~ people). Email is relegated to things like Calendar invites and formal requests; Slack covers everything else. According to our stats, we send 2-3k messages per day - I would hate to see what that looks like as email.

Re: @ ben edwards
When you're calling variables "getSome" and "getsome", and their content is spectacularly similar, how is the compiler or another developer supposed to know if you made a mistake? This is what I was hinting at in my original post, not some drawn-out argument over which OS is best or character-sets.
Re: Congratulations on repeating exploits before they can be fixed
Considering the "fix" is to adopt a beta and not a public patch, your logic is flawed.
Betas are not supposed to be installed on production-level machines. The family laptop with all your non-backed up pictures counts as a production-level machine.
Seems odd that mSpy's data is readable. Shouldn't it be encrypted? Can mSpy assure its userbase that only "parents and managers" can see the data? Who's to say an mSpy employee hasn't read the texts during a slow news day?
And why is a reporter announcing that the data haul is in fact genuine? Seems like he's only going to encourage people who have the ability to get the dump to pay up for it. You know, the crowd who likes verified data dumps for phishing et al?
Close, but no cigar
Going to Cupertino sounds like they want the business customers first, but any business worth its salt won't just replace existing infrastructure just for AT&T's benefit. You target the home users so they harass IT enough to do it, cuz otherwise people will just torrent at work on someone else's dime.
Re: When I was involved....
Netflix has caching servers for ISPs to place inside their network to reduce bandwidth cost. I believe they even pay for it. The big players are choosing to not take advantage of this, as it would likely demonstrate their infrastructure isn't as sound as it should be.
300gb? For real? A long, long time ago, when Australia's Bigpond cable network installed its new plans (from unlimited to quota), the cap was 3gb for the month. That's not a typo. It's been a long time since I moved from Australia to California, so perhaps things have become a bit more reasonable. But I doubt it.
I don't see something like 300gb coming from Comcast unless a healthy portion of users were actually hitting that close enough to make them pay more. Low-capacity users would have to be healthily below that, too. But given that on my phone alone I can pull down 15gb just via Apple, I have huge doubts.
It seems utterly insane that just giving a check to an organization voluntarily - for advertising - allows a vendor to dictate what happens front and backstage.
Of course, I also think it's bloody stupid that a vendor can buy the naming rights to an arena they had no hand in building. Like the HP's Pavillion in San Jose or Oracle's arena.
Wow; the lack of cynicism here shows how right he is.
Not. With the rise of helicopter parenting, the coddling of the children's activity and choices, the denounciation of children actually learning anything at school (OMG THEY CAN'T TEACH MY SNOWFLAKE ABOUT TITS!!!), it's no wonder that kids are turning to one of the few approved channels of entertainment.
You know how I know it's approved? The parents provide the kit.
/causation, correlation, et al.
Calling it a teleporter would be a misnomer. Since they're talking about copying/mapping, it would be a cloning system so there's bugger all impact on the original victim. Teleportation would require the literal deconstruction of the source.
And isn't DNA in itself highly compressed like a zipfile?
I had always thought that the charge on the credit card was the accepted price and cannot be cancelled easily by either party without triggering all kinds of interesting processes. I doubt it matters if he contacted Apple; the big question is was he already dinged on his credit card or not before the order cancelled. (He obviously was or they wouldn't have shipped.)
On the wane?
Of course it's on the wane. They have yet again neglected to enable profiles for Google Apps users, just like they did for Wave and Buzz. On top of that, I'm sick of having to opt-out of email chains from enthusiastic beta testers who don't seem to care if I've expressed interest in it or not. This should be opt-in, not opt-out.
The subscription fee, even divided among Apple and the labels, is still more money than would have been earned if the service didn't exist. We can all see the way Netflix is changing the video market, and now Apple is doing an equivalent (perhaps better?) version for music.
I'm surprised to see that few people realize that it's another step closer to a Star Trek era where everything you want is everywhere there's a signal.
Multiple copies of same message
Am I the only one confused on why they're sending a clone of a message to the recipients? Cloning a 200kb message to 6 people, along with the backend to shard it out, takes way more resources over just letting those 6 people reference the original. If the reader "deletes" it, they'd simply be removing their link to the post, while still letting the 5 other readers get it...
