Verizon Finally Unveils Apple iPhone

Slash.Poop Why... (480 comments)

Why if you are going to copy the first few paragraphs of the article would you change "February 10th" to "early next month"?

Maybe the article changed or something but it just seems strange to remove the exact date.

Chrome OS Arrives On the iPad — No, Seriously!

Slash.Poop Re:A Robust OS like Apple's??? (325 comments)

Yup, and most electronic devices have a power button.
Although, you don't hear many people claiming that their device "features" a power button. No, it is just standard.

Was the door on your house one of the highlighted "features" during the pitch? You would have laughed at real estate agent if they told you the house "features" a door. Of course it "features" a door! You would be befuddled if it didn't. Kind of like how I am befuddled when a computer doesn't "feature" printing or spell check. (Although they do have spell check now)

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/feature
-noun
1. a prominent or conspicuous part or characteristic
2. something offered as a special attraction

But anyway, nice arguing with you. I have made my point and will now move on.

Chrome OS Arrives On the iPad — No, Seriously!

Slash.Poop Re:A Robust OS like Apple's??? (325 comments)

A "feature" would be something that is non-standard.

Take spell check for example, you wouldn't consider that a feature? Oh wait, nevermind.

You fluffers crack me up!

Yea, cause printing is something you would never want to do from a computer. We should inform Apple that way they don't implement it in 4.2. They seem to be working on it for nothing.

Although you are right. A "feature" (LMAO at printing being a "feature") does fit into the "infrequently-used" category when it is not even present.

Employee Monitoring

Slash.Poop Luck for me.... (274 comments)

...our Boss does not want to monitor our employees.

However, as IT we know that SOME monitoring has to be done. We have found out that MOST of our monitoring does not even need to take place. We simply restrict access through Active Directory and DNS.

Apple Censors Ulysses App In Time For Bloomsday

Slash.Poop Re:Why? (333 comments)

Oh! THEIR app store. Now I get it.

So...in order to get an official app on my phone that app must be in the app store.
So...in order to get into the app store that app must pass Apple's moral police.

So...that would be censorship.

Digital Copy

Slash.Poop Slash.Poop writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Slash.Poop (1088395) writes "For years now, the most legitimate and legal argument for the ability to rip and burn media has been for the purposes of making a backup copy. Now with the introduction of digital copies into DVDs and Blu-rays has the media industry trumped this argument? Apple's iTunes store made its announcement sometime back and other outlets have reported this including, Computer World:

Digital Copy is nonsense. It's your movie, you bought it, and you should be able to watch it how you want to watch, when you want to watch it. There are many programs out there that allow you to make copies of your DVDs and let you watch them the way you want to view them. The combination of HandBrake, an open-source video to MPEG4 converter with versions for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows and a DVD DRM decryption library like libdvdcss for Linux PCs, Macs, and older versions of Windows works well. Or, on XP — but not Vista — you can use the old, but still best of breed, DVD Decrypter 3.5.4.0.
