Comment Re:Not news until his salary is $0 (Score 0, Troll) 336

HP added the thickness to their 15" laptop and not a 17" only to cover the increased need to power a screen that has more resolution than what someone will notice. I don't call that a design accomplishment so much as obligation to account for a 4k display that no one really is going to need in a 15" screen. verge article. Apple dumped 17" laptops years ago. Very few people give a shit about 17" laptops.

If they didn't add value to it then people would not be going through Apple EVERY MONTH for the convenience. Same thing with people paying $8+ to Time Warner for a modem rental. If the price is too high and there is an alternative to do things cheaper it is up to the consumer to make that decision. Should the consumer opt for convenience at a price it is up to them.

I'd add Tiki Wiki to the list of there for ones worth considering. It has way way too many features, but is really nice for getting just about anything going. Typo3 is an amazing product, but I personally find Tiki Wiki to be easier for someone who doesn't want to do any programming and knows just enough web to properly install scripts, database, etc. and do some markup. Typo3 is a great solution if you have the time to learn it and maintain it, but I'd personally say that if all you are trying to do is a favor job for someone you can get Tiki Wiki going and working acceptably for plebs and not have any trouble maintaining it and updating it. Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress all feel very inefficient to me for groupware software. They are easier to get going, but I find them annoying to actually use.

A little bit. The author as stated in the article is also the author of the sync tool, Syncoid and does consulting. He doesn't really have a horse in the race for the company he's reviewing and his tools are looking to support Btrfs, so he's not necessarily married too ZFS or the solution the company the review is mostly about. Actually pretty nice article to read.

From some of the benchmarks in the article it didn't seem like rsync had any strength over syncoid, other than his tool requiring ZFS on both ends while rsync being more flexible.
