Are Lenovo's ThinkPads Getting Worse?

s4ltyd0g Re:W series is the last line? (271 comments)

If they didn't have that big 170W power supply, you wouldn't be able to run the thing and charge the battery at the same time.

EU Car Makers Manipulating Fuel Efficiency Figures

This is no different from dot matrix printer specifications from long ago. Sure your printer would do 250cps as long as all the characters were the number 1.

BlackBerry 10 Review: Good, But Too Late?

s4ltyd0g Re:Regarding the 'too late' part of the equation (184 comments)

With all your mail marked as unread. Yep I can do that too. State does not get picked up by Blackberry email client so no way to tell if a message was already read or responded. Sure it supports IMAP but as I said terribly.

BlackBerry 10 Review: Good, But Too Late?

s4ltyd0g Re:Regarding the 'too late' part of the equation (184 comments)

Maybe corporate messaging but not for the rest of us. For instance, their imap support is terrible and if you need to get your email from an imap server you'll need another client than the native blackberry one. So you have a choice between tight integration and barely functional imap support, or functional imap with little or no integration with the rest of the system.

AT&T: Don't Want a Data Plan for That Smartphone? Too Bad.

s4ltyd0g Re:Too bad. (798 comments)

I call bullshit, no cellular phone provider actually provides support for the handsets. It's all "you have a signal, the rest isn't our problem, see the handset manufacturer".

After A Year, Emacswiki Alternative Shutting Down

s4ltyd0g Re:The "emacs community"?? (127 comments)

Sorry emacs doesn't get to sit with vi or ed. even on Linux and FreeBSD, you'll see nano before you'll ever see Emacs there to help you rescue/setup your system. But true the rest of your statement about sysadmins needing to know many tools.

While I agree with you, I'm not sure it works that way. You can be highly infectious even before the onset of symptoms.

New Hampshire Cops Use Taser On Woman Buying Too Many iPhones

s4ltyd0g Re:This just in... (936 comments)

Actually the opposite. This is the result of having educated police officers. Not sure how it works in the US but in Canada, they go through a program in school. Educated police, don't want to dirty their hands too much, or skin their knuckles taking someone down. You don't need to be in good physical shape to push a button.
