He's busy doing secret secrets!
I think you meant "Space Oddity", rallier. I've forgiven you though, because french.
I hope not, cause I used meebo for a while on my iphone and it was not a great experience.
When did the tested forums turn into Yahoo Answers?
@Darklighter009: Unless you live out in the absolute middle of nowhere, there's absolutely nothing wrong with them. If you live somewhere out of the way though, you might not get the best service, as these companies generally don't get access to their carrier's roaming networks. But if you're somewhere that you already get great coverage from t-mobile? Go for it.
About four months ago I got fed up with paying ATT $80+ a month for my iphone that I really wasn't using and had it unlocked. Took it to a carrier which uses t-mobile's network and saved a ton of money.
The only caveat I'd offer is, your phone needs to run on t-mobile's band in order to get highspeed data. My iphone 4 from ATT does not, so I'm sticking pretty much to a pay-as-you-go service and paying less than $10 a month for a phone that makes the occasional call and sends text messages. Data doesn't bother me too much since I spend most of my day around wi-fi hotspots. If I upgraded to something like a Nexus 4, though? Unlimited everything for $40 a month with no taxes or fees seems like a no-brainer.
So I guess these new plans are a step in the right direction, but if you really want to go crazy to save money, you can go even further than this without much hassle.
It probably has a lot to do with development costs. MMOs aren't huge money makers, so why take that kind of risk when most of your potential market are already situated on PC?
I've also heard that xbox 360 version of FFXI was held up for a while because SquareEnix went through lengthy talks with Microsoft about allowing them to put a multiplayer game on the xbox that not only didn't require XBL gold but also allowed SquareEnix to accept payment without Microsoft as the middle man. MS wasn't particularly down on that arrangement back then (2006), I can only imagine what it would be like to try that today.
I don't think they get a whole lot of choice when it comes to what exactly is being advertised unless it's offensive or harmful.
@Conmused: I didn't test it, Tested is whitelisted, just going off what OP said.
@will That beard is out of control, man. Out of control.
I use one of these for exactly that reason. Works very well (both at pulling junk out of the air and creating white noise) and wasn't too expensive. It's also fairly small and can be moved around and still kept out of the way. I did notice at my last place, however, that the air circulation it created did seem to cool the room off a little bit, but I was ok with that.
Banner doesn't play music, doesn't expand when you mouse over it, doesn't try to install malware, what's so annoying about it? The fact that you can't block it with adblock?
And as to the outdated nonsense comment, the podcast crew occasionally says polarizing things that should be taken with a grain of salt. People using Exchange servers for mail, calendars, etc, for instance, would probably disagree. The newest version of Outlook for Windows is actually very good.
So, I'm pretty sure my router died during my move. The connection works for ten or fifteen minutes, and then everything dies. I'm going to run straight through the modem tonight just to confirm, but I feel pretty sure that the router just got borked while moving. What's the router will always recommends? I know he and brad discussed it on a recent episode, but I thought I'd ask the tested brain trust before I go scrubbing through the episode again to find it. I remember it was an ASUS model, but that's about it.
Who cares what the box looks like? It's going to sit on a shelf or inside an entertainment center and get dusty. Maybe it'll have a little light on it. It will probably be black and plastic.
Why waste time trying to unsubscribe? You'll likely never run out of storage space on gmail. Archive for life!
@Conmused: Yeah, it was more of a question to the people who honestly believe they would stop doing it. I don't get that logic at all.
Boy, this thread was nuts.
ATT unlocked my out of contract iPhone about a month ago. Incredibly painless process and only took a few days. Why would they suddenly stop doing that?
@Rallier: I don't want to alarm you, but I think a salad bar threw up on your toast.
I tried planting flowers and different things to utilize my yard a couple years ago.
A week later my roommate had ran over EVERYTHING with the lawnmower. My spirit completely broken, I gave up after that point.
