How BlackBerry Is Riding iOS and Android To Power Its Comeback
I realize the parent was trying to be sarcastic, but remote phone wipe has been a feature on BES for a long time, I know it was available on the first BES I setup running 3.x many years ago.
Ask Slashdot: Protecting Home Computers From Guests?
Amen to that. That's what friends and the kid's friends get handed when they ask to "check their email and Facebook". It works.
Windfarm Sickness Spreads By Word of Mouth
It's still on an ongoing issue in those parts. Driving through Saginaw/Midland area a few years ago lots of residents had signs in their front yards demanding Dow cleanup their Dioxin mess, especially houses near the Tittabawasee river. Weather or not it's really an issue? I have no idea. But people are still seem to be concerned about it.
Oracle Rushes Emergency Java Update To Patch McRAT Vulnerabilities
It's running fine for me on 7.17 (ASDM 6.4)
Machine Gun Fire From Military Helicopters Flying Over Downtown Miami
What if someone on the ground started shooting back?
Facebook and Zynga Move Apart
Had a pretty good game with Farmville? You mean they did a pretty good job of copying/ripping off Farm Town? I'm quite happy to see Zynga go rigtht down the toilet. They deserve it. Even Mafia Wars was a copy cat of another game.
IT Support Pro Tells Why He Hates Live Chat
We've had several hard drive failures in the last few months and I've used HP's online chat every time to get them replaced. When I call HP, I'm usually on the phone for a t least 15 minutes listening to on-hold music. On the Chat, my wait is rarely more than two minutes. On the downside, I'm often waiting for them to respond, but it's easier for me to do other things while waiting on the chat than it would be on the phone.
I agree. I use Dell's support chat every week. I hate calling them but for a different reason, I always seem to have a hard time understanding the person on the other end of the line.
Being Honest In Exit Interviews Is Pointless
I had a worthless boss at a job I left, I requested an exit interview with the head of HR. They didn't normally do exit interviews, but I had been there for 6 years, so they wanted to know why I was leaving. Took a few months after I left to find time for a meeting, but I laid it all out. How I felt, why I left... 2 months later I got a call to come back. They fired my old boss after I opened their eyes to the BS he was pulling. I went back.. with a nice raise and a $4k signing "bonus". It works in certain cases. YMMV.
The DHS's Latest Investment: Terahertz Laser Scanners
from the Ministry of Housinge? It could pin point a purr from 400 yards away!
Ask Slashdot: Best Way To Destroy Hard Drives?
Myself and a co-worker were just discussing this topic. At my previous job, I would took a box full of old HDD's, several boxes of Winchester whitebox ball ammo (9MM) and my Springfield XD-9 out behind my parents house (who live out in BFE). What a blast. The only problem is the mess it makes. It's by far the most entertaining way I've ever disposed of hard drives.
Academics Speak On 'Life After World Of Warcraft'
-Warcraft was very much like all of the rest of the genre.-
What? The original Warcraft was ground breaking. There was nothing else like it when it first came out.
