Creating a Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Bootable Flash Drive
Didn't they say it was going to be a USB Thumb drive?
Mozilla Labs: the URL Bar Has To Go
You can pry the URL bar from my cold dead hands
The Case Against GUIs, Revisited
If a standardised 7-bit clean text serialisation were created for every visual object on a Windows-like system - preferably one which was also cleanly human-editable as text - then we'd have something. But I think you'd have to deliberately break some deeply treasured OOP thinking to get there.
I honestly just wish they would continue down the Exchange 2010 path where all GUI windows have a little PowerShell button, you click the button and there is the commands you would need to run in order to get this scripted. I think its an excellent addition to the way you're already used to doing something with the extensibility UNIX fans crave. We could argue about how much better bash et al. are, but I think this is pretty good for windows cli.
E-Book Lending Stands Up To Corporate Mongering
* many of the advantages are dubious
As are many of your complaints.
After MS-Nokia Pact, Many Nokia Workers Walk Out In Protest
Maybe that's why I can't find anything when using Bing Maps.
News Corp. and Apple Unveil The Daily
This is exactly how I feel. What in the world would make you want to be a purveyor of obviously one sided misinformation?
Senate Votes To Turn Down Volume On TV Commercials
I give a huge fuck about this issue and I only watch a few hours of tv a week.
Colleges Stepping Up Anti-Cheating Technology
As if to say they are usually taught anything they need to know for their job anyway.
Gulf Oil Leak Plugged?
All of the preliminary plans involved using, in some form or another, methods that would allow them to keep the oil rather then having the primary concern of say, stopping the leak all together.
Gulf Oil Leak Plugged?
I don't think "we" as in the government could have come up with a solution quicker, what I think is the solution should have already been mapped out BEFORE ANY DRILLING TOOK PLACE. You know, like a "oh shit, all my servers are dead, what do I do?"
The fact that things took this long is a sign that nobody is really looking over the shoulders of the guys in charge here. This was a slow and lethargic bullshit response that started with BP trying to make money off the spilling oil and spiraled into "welp, guess we can't fix it, might as well plug it up."
btw, I live about 100 miles from the coast, have family who live on the coast, more family who fish on that coast and plenty of friends who've been down there and shunned off by the local law enforcement (read: BPs minions). This is a catastrophic failure and totally pisses me off to no end.
The Irksome Cellphone Industry
No, complain to the FCC. http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm
Follow the little wizard and put everything you told us into it.
It's not AT&T's job to stop phone calls to your device. You either call the police or the FCC.
A Curmudgeonly Look At Google Wave
The question will really be adoption. Which, I imagine, is part of the reason Google is open sourcing it.
My thoughts exactly. I do wonder how they plan on making money off this. Perhaps their portal (eg: gmail) will have some target advertising? Anyway, I'm excited about this but it's years off before we have widespread adoption.
$30B IT Stimulus Will Create Almost 1 Million Jobs
Excluding the hiring of people to find the right deployments to sink money into, isn't this what the government is doing? As far as internet infrastructure go's we are way behind, and creating more infrastructure allows for higher internet speeds. This in turn will drive the market to produce products that use those faster speeds. Creating jobs and spending.
Hawaii Planning State-Wide Electric Car Network
It uses the existing roads rather then requires that every road be outfitted with rails. I've imagined this as well, cars link up with other cars and form trains using some sort of locking mechanism (like the way trains lock into each other).
