Is it legal to have sex?
Is it legal to sell things?
Is it legal to sell your time to do something, e.g. babysit?
Is it legal to sell your body to do something, e.g. be a professional model?
Why shouldn't it be legal to sell your time to have sex?
You can't agree to the first four...
I had to do an in-place upgrade from the ISO to get it installed on my laptop (had all of the telemetry blocked, so I can't get insider builds). And then I had to re-block all of the telemetry shit after the install. So I can confirm that it didn't remember any of the settings.
I have a sound card (X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro) and fairly-decent Audio-Technica ATH-M30 headphones because I care about what I listen to. I want to experience the music.
And yes: I have a large library of FLACs, from 16/44 all the way up to 24/192 and even surround-sound ones.
Except that given the fact that I cited the offending update: clearly shows that I'm neither willfully ignorant nor ignorant at all of any problem. Nor did I insult anyone. Perhaps you're just looking for trouble where none exists.
Let me know when you actually know what you're talking about.
My Win7 desktop is nag-free. It's all about NOT installing KB3035583 and the telemetry-reporting "updates". I have never once seen the "Get Windows 10" upgrade tray icon. Never once been notified that Win10 is available for me to get in Windows update. Never.
Because I know what I'm doing...
And there are ways to eliminate that from happening, e.g. DoNotSpy10 and other programs which modify the hosts file/otherwise block the telemetry data from being sent.
I did that on my laptop (won't upgrade to 10 on my desktop, since I can't be sure that my 32-bit copy of Opera 12.17 won't...
There are programs like Destroy Window 10 Spying, and DoNotSpy10. So yes: you can escape it. I have turned off every bit of telemetry available to be turned off with those two programs. And you can create firewall rules to eliminate the spying. It can be done.
And Apple consistently FAILS at that. The UI is horrid for iAnything. And dealing with the "app store" (no trademark, because to hell with IP) is nightmarish if you want to do anything with as few clicks as possible. Contrast that with how Android is (and I don't even consider the Windows app...
I don't think that Apple products are the least bit elegant in the first place. They look like shit. And the walled-off ecosystem is shit. They took a big strained shit on the idea of the original mac commercial (breaking free from Big Brother).
Well, all the AGW whackos scream that the sun has nothing to do with anything. And we all know that it plays a very important part. This finding, of course, confirms that the sun plays a very important part.In fact: it plays the majority part. Humans can't do anything (other than nuclear winter)...
Some city governments have implemented congestion charges.
Not necessarily. The "cash for clunkers" program in the US got rid of a lot of good cars that could otherwise have been bought by poorer people. Now please don't think I'm saying anything about Obama; I'm not. I'm pointing out the...
Usually it's a luxury and expensive because of the governmental regulations, such as NYC's medallion scheme.
Once again: sounds like a problem of government increasing costs (gas taxes, income taxes, car registration, etc).
