I will say that they offer 2 things that no one else does: Network sync, so a file does not have to go into the cloud or come from the cloud in order to sync to another device on the network; no one else supports this. And, they also support following symlinks.
One can wipe ChromeOS and just install certain Linux flavors.... but ChromeOS is for some and is about to get the Play store on many Chromebooks. And, using Crouton to run full blown Linux side by side is very easy to do. Plus there is a built-in self destruct since the CB needs to be in Developer Mode to run Crouton and thus it is easy to powerwash at start up when in that mode since it tells you press the space bar to leave DevMode which will delete everything for a clean install.
If a number is not in the list contact list, have the caller answer a question before they can have it ring the phone. Maybe it is a personal question or access code, or maybe it is a basic question. For instance what color is grass when it is dead? 1 green, 2 blue, 3 yellow, 4 brown.
What is frustrating is the article makes no mention of whether it is for both versions (free or pro) or just the free version. The Pro version is very cheap and worth the cost, so hopefully, the Pro version is not affected by this.
Mesosphere is suppose to be taking the concept of OpenStack to the next evolutionary level using the next more recent concepts that have been released on how Google's BORG worked it (Google has evolved past this, but everyone else is still catching up).
Mark Wilson writes: Like Edward Snowden, Julian Assange is an incredibly divisive character. Just as Snowden is viewed by some as a hero for exposing the activities of the NSA, so Assange is viewed as a hero for exposing — amongst other things — the darker side of the US military through WikiLeaks. But both figures are also viewed as villains by those who believe that their whistleblowing has endangered national security.
While Snowden scampered off to Russia to avoid the US legal system, Assange took refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. While it's certainly true that he's a man of interest for the US which ultimately seeks to prosecute him over the activities of WikiLeaks, Assange is actually holed up in the UK to escape extradition to Sweden where he faces questioning over allegations of rape. He has continually used the additional prospect of extradition to the US for WikiLeaks-related questioning as an excuse for not facing the music in Sweden. This is just about as wrong as it's possible to be.
msm1267 writes: A unique scareware campaign targeting Mac OS X machines has been discovered, and it’s likely the developer behind the malware has been at it a while since the installer that drops the scareware is signed with a legitimate Apple developer certificate.
“Sadly, this particular developer certificate (assigned to a Maksim Noskov) has been used for probably two years in similar attacks,” said Johannes Ullrich, dean of research of the SANS Institute’s Internet Storm Center, which on Thursday publicly disclosed the campaign. “So far, it apparently hasn’t been revoked by Apple.”
