Banning the device is well within the bar owner's rights, just as requiring cell phones to be turned off in a movie theater is legitimate. However, “ass kickings will be encouraged for violators”.is a violation of law, and I sincerely hope some geek with more money than sense wears his device into the dive and subsequently sues for inciting violence. There's a reasonable exercise of ownership rights on private property, and then there's the Teabagger attitude that "I can do it because I'm right wing."
@NickModrowski - If Netflix, Amazon Prime, ESPN, Hulu Plus, Crackle, CNS, NBC, and even Faux News and the hundreds of other channels available are "lacking," I suppose so.
"iOS users are apparently out in the cold." No Apple douchebags? Good! I'm in!
And your "edit" button is broken.
You know, considering the huge problems Microsoft's "updates and upgrades" have caused me with Office 200, Office 2003, and Office 2007, I see no reason I should *EVER* buy a later version of office, and anyone who subscribes to any Microsoft product is simply throwing money down the toilet.
The problems with Hulu are (1) the "subscription model" is *still* ad-supported; (2) the interface of Hulu Desktop isn't compatible with Windows Media Center, which is arguably the most-popular way to watch media on a PC; (3) many shows remain unavailable on devices which are not PCs (such as the Roku) even when the subscriber has paid for Hulu Plus (can you say "bait & switch?"). Furthermore, Comcast, as a bandwidth provider, ought to be forbidden to also be a content provider because they have already demonstrated that they can and will take anti-competitive measures to protect their content-provider service from Netflix, Amazon, etc.
The American broadband scene is a mess due to non-compete monopolies, and until that's fixed, Hulu isn't going be really relevant.
Meanwhile, Kingsoft Office Free is tied to... Nothing. No charge.
Best Buy - they'll lie, cheat, and if they think they can get away with it, steal. Shop elsewhere.
The best jailbreak is an Android device.
This is a design failure in UEFI, at the bottom of it all. If logs are required (and clearly, they are useful in the event of a crash), the address space of the writable CMOS RAM *must* be totally separate from the boot code; only a PHB would insist on making them sufficiently close together to permit overwriting the boot code.
