Laser Eye Surgery, Revisited 10 Years Later

But you can if you wear glasses/contacts? I doubt it? You can't even be a military pilot with corrected vision, I believe.

It's much more likely it's a grammatical error by a non-native speaker. It's a pretty standard grammatical error for non-native speakers to make, but you almost never see it from native speakers.

Lenovo Halts Sales of Small-Screen Windows 8.1 Tablets Due To "Lack of Interest"

jon3k Re:Why should Lenovo support their main competitor (125 comments)

Actually Apple is the only company that makes a trackpad that isn't garbage. Nothing else is even close. And apple keyboards are great. And this is from a guy who uses a RealForce topre keyboard at home and a Cherry (Brand) with red switches at work. I type in the 120-130 wpm range and as far as laptop keyboards go, Apple makes a really great keyboard for a 13" laptop. The key travel and rebound is great, and the keys are pretty accepting off off center strikes.

Lenovo Halts Sales of Small-Screen Windows 8.1 Tablets Due To "Lack of Interest"

jon3k Re: Why should Lenovo support their main competito (125 comments)

Uh, it has multiple ethernet ports? I have a usb ethernet adapter that I bought, like an idiot apparently, because I've never used it. And it's a 2010 that still works perfectly. I keep hoping it will break because I want to buy a new one with a backlit keyboard but the damn thing just wont quit. It literally looks like the day I bought the damn thing. Just upgraded to mavericks and it runs like a champ.

Lenovo Halts Sales of Small-Screen Windows 8.1 Tablets Due To "Lack of Interest"

jon3k Re:Why should Lenovo support their main competitor (125 comments)

Macbook display quality is about a thousand times better, and there's literally no comparison in the trackpads and keyboards either. What you have is a vastly inferior Macbook Air,, but at a great price. I'm sure for the money it's a great little laptop, but the Air is a far superior machine.

He's not a yank, you can tell from his grammar. "I had a Scandinavian girlfriend at some time". At one time, for some time, etc, but never "at some time".

Maldives Denies Russian Claims That Secret Service Kidnapped a Politician's Son

jon3k Re:Red notice (100 comments)

I should hope that if somebody in (say) the UK ripped off a few thousand Russian pensioners over the internet, that the Russians could have him handed over (and thrown in Russian PMITA prison) quickly.

I would support this 100%. You go to Russia and commit a crime then Russia has every right to prosecute you for it.

Ask Slashdot: Best Dedicated Low Power Embedded Dev System Choice?

jon3k Re:Solaris not well supported by OSS toolchain (183 comments)

Because there may be a better way to accomplish it. If your kid came to you and said dad can I get a rope, three pounds of butter and a mule? Would you give it to him or ask what he was trying to accomplish?

Docker 1.0 Released

jon3k Re:Security considerations and other-than-Linux? (88 comments)

The quality of comments on are are further proof of how far downhill /. has fallen. It's just depressing.

Ironically, this is exactly what your post made me think. It's 2014 and someone on Slashdot is asking what the performance and security considerations of virtualization are? Really? Every one of your questions is answered within about 30 seconds of Googling and reading.

Docker 1.0 Released

jon3k Re:Sound like BSD jails (88 comments)

It's similar, it's a linux container technology. It also uses a couple of newish features in the kernel to give you a little more control over your containers (namely, cgroups and namesakes). But if you're familiar with containers then you already know what docker is, at the basic level.

Ask Slashdot: A 'Mavis Beacon' For Teaching Smartphone and Tablet Typing?

jon3k Re:Nope, it just sucks (55 comments)

that exist purely for style

They exist so that the software keyboard can move out of the way and the input mechanism can be changed by software. It's a trade off. You trade the ability to type more quickly for a per application, software defined user interface.

(consumption and feeding you ads)

You forgot communication. Phone calls, email, text messages, facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat, Yik Yak (I could go on for a while).

All Your Content Distribution Are Belonw to Akamai

jon3k jon3k writes  |  more than 6 years ago

anonymous dude (691256) writes "Shares of Limelight Networks Inc. are trading down $2.23 (35.01%) to $4.13 this afternoon as the company has lost a patent suit filed by rival Akamai Technologies Inc. Limelight had been doing pretty well, in a sense, having succeeded in knocking two patents off the docket. But a jury ruled today that Limelight violated the remaining patent, No. 6,108,703, titled "Global Hosting System," which covers the basic architecture of a content delivery network.

apache + rsync = lawsuit"
