Ask Slashdot: Mac To Linux Return Flow?
I routinely use both OpenVPN and Junos Pulse on my Android. What are you talking about?
Nexus 4 Includes Support For LTE
Apple's cheapest phone is $650. Google's is $299. You'd have to be a fool to expect that they would be treated the same with that price delta. Also just how much is Apple paying for their goddamn radio that a 32GB iPod Touch is $299, but it's $650 for 16GB iPod Touch + Phone capabilities (iPhone)?
34% of iPhone Owners Think the 4 Is 4G
Guys, I dunno how to break it to you but at least on AT&T it is 4G as it has been redefined. A 3G phone is incapable of doing more than 128kbps upstream on AT&T's network. When you negotiate your network connection, you set a hspa version. The iPhone 4 and the 4G Android phones negotiate the same way. They get the same transfer speeds.
Blame the FCC for allowing this to become so goddan murky. Reminds me of the old days when USB 1.1 got relabeled USB 2.0 Full-Speed, vs USB 2.0 Hi-Speed which was way faster than Full-Speed.
68% of US Broadband Connections Aren't Broadband
bzzt, wrong. 'Broadband' is a technical term that does not change in meaning. "[Broadband is] a term used to describe a network that can transmit a wide range of signals, including audio and video. Broadband networks are especially useful in the Networked World, as they can carry many signals at once, resulting in faster data transmission"
Words get new meanings over time. Organic has been supplanted to mean something other than "life". Get with it, because as much as I hate organic it is here to stay. So is broadband as a synonym for "big pipe"...

Windows 7 "Not Much Faster" Than Vista
No Business Case For IPv6, Survey Finds
There is more than one protocol than http. Try ftp, imap, smtp, irc and https on for size.
Dreamweaver Is Dying; Long Live Drupal!
I use Drupal Joomla and Wordpress fairly regularly for different jobs/projects and most of my time is spent making the sites looks different from every other cms site out there
How about you learn to use a comma?
EC Considering Removing Internet Explorer From Windows
The Windows ftp client doesn't support passive mode. This makes it practically useless if you're behind nat.
iTunes DRM-Free Files Contain Personal Info
i seriously doubt that an email which can be easily changed in a file can be used as the sole grounds for pressing charges. It ma however bolster a case where a user has been tracked by IP and the files have his email too.
As we're talking about purchased music, all Apple would have to do is lookup the record of the credit card used to purchase the song.
So unless you always use iTunes redeemable gift cards, it's probably fairly easy to track a user definitively.
Running Android On Netbooks
What can Gentoo do that Ubuntu can't do?
Oh come on, sure that initial compile is slow and heats up your processor big time, but it's still not capable of making cookies!
32bit Win7 Vs. Vista Vs. XP
Unless you have more than 3.5 GB of RAM
Unless you allocate more than 3.5 GB per process.
PAE has gotten around the 4 gig limit a long time ago.
32bit Win7 Vs. Vista Vs. XP
I agree. Nobody is selling 32-bit processors anymore.
Intel's Atom processor is 32-bit.
Linux can handle 32-bit applications on 64-bit OSes. Surely MS can do the same?
It's the proprietary drivers that make it hard for MS to do the same. In Linux the vast majority of drivers are maintained in source, so this isn't as much of a problem.
Boot Windows Vista In Four Seconds
If they've found a way to boot Windows in 4 seconds, nobody other than haters is going to care how it was done. Calling the method an abuse of the hibernation system is as ridiculous as calling Jailbreaking an abuse of an iPod. It's your hardware.
I think you're missing the point. Since this is loading a hibernated image of a freshly booted system, this means that updates or changes in startup will be lost unless you remake the image. Since many Windows Updates require a reboot to take effect, this could result in remotely exploitable services running on your system.
