BTW FCC radiation limits prevent CPU from emitting too much radiation.
But what is most amazing is that it does not seem to have made any profits yet.
Root cause of the problem seems to be, some large corporations with large phone banks want to spoof their number. They don't care if that ability is misused by shady operators peddling junk. They are totally wrong, it is better to pay a few cents more per call to get an account with the privilege to spoof the originating number. If they reduce the number of junk calls, their potential customers might actually answer their calls. Right now the junk call menace is so high most people are refusing answer any unknown number.
Just charge 1 cent per call to spoof the originating number, the junk call volume will go down by orders of magnitude.
Well, yes indeed it is. The conclusion of that should not be to tax capital gains more, it should be to tax income less. If you tax capital gains more, people will invest less in things that produce capital gains, which means less economic activity, fewer jobs, lower wages, etc.
It has been soundly proved wrong. We have been coddling them by cutting cap gain taxes for 30 years. World is awash with capital. 2 trillion dollars uninvested. Labor is cheap, capital is cheap now. There is no demand for goods and services, so there are no good investment opportunities available. Why? Because the super rich have vacuumed up all the gains of all the productivity gains leaving the consumers threadbare.
Must tax the rich and spend it, spend it wantonly, spending it building bridges to nowhere. The Feds can bury boxes full of cash at random locations and ask people to go dig and find it. Even that would produce more economic growth than this madness of begging the rich to invest and create jobs.
Using AGI is quite misleading. People at high income brackets avoid taking salary. They will call it stock options or carried interest or something else. Only 44 thousand people allowed their income to go beyond 5 million dollars. Either they had dumb lawyers, or they made so damned much this is the last few dollars that was impossible to rename through lawyering at a rate lower than income tax rate.
A wealth manager for very wealthy makes a distinction between top 1% and top 0.5% (8 million according to IRS and 15 million according to the Feds). The top 0.5% is reached only by people with inherited wealth, or very lucky people who get to top 5% by smartness and hardwork, and end up in 0.5% due to good fortune, or stock options. Professionals, doctors, lawyers, accountants are very unlikely to reach top 0.5%, and increasing not even likely to reach top 1%. He used to see very successful professionals retiring in top 1%. But no longer.
He calculates that a person starting at low end of 1% by income for that age group, and staying at the same band (99% dividing line by income) all his/her working life will NOT end up in top 1% by financial wealth. A persons starting in the low end of 1% by wealth, will stay there if he/she draws the same amount of money our 1% by income professional, and might go up in scale.
In USA money earned by blood, sweat, tears and brains (wages, earned income) is taxed at much higher rate than money earned by money (capital gains, carried interest, qualified dividends, etc). This is the root cause of the inequality. For 30 years, since Reagan, the US Govt has been coddling the super rich by funneling all tax relief to them. They turned their back to the USA, invested all the savings in low wage countries to maximize their profits.
Among the solvers some of the matrix solvers use FORTRAN and some blas. Again they too prefer C++ for most of the solution and reserve FORTRAN only for really serious loops.
But a question for those who have: Does it still win with dynamic memory allocation? How granular is the dynamic memory allocation? Complete like C? or it is a bastardized version where the common block sizes could be defined at run time and then it runs without ever calling free()? I could imagine the language getting malloc() but not free() to retain speed.
Technically it would be very difficult to stop an executable to run another executable in a sand box. Depending on how well you have understood the executable, you could do many things like step through debugging, poking and pushing memory etc. Debuggers work by "instrumenting" the executables, but they too act as man in the middle.
In this case Android executables are java which started out as an interpreted platform independent language. So it is a lot more "debuggable" than your typical linux or windows executable. So WhatsApp+ could theoretically sniff the memory locations and intercept communications, eavesdrop on the data and sell them to advertizers. One of the biggest thing about WhatsApp is, it does not eavesdrop, it does not sell ads. User are dumb to use this app.
WhatsApp itself should come out with a free version that would sniff the communications and sell ads and call it WhatsApp Minus. Or WhatsApp Minus Privacy.
Or a pet door or a cut-out door in the garage door. Works same way, can be locked without a key, but needs a key to open.
Far less complex, as reliable, and added bonus: The body you have hidden in the freezer in the garage would not be accidentally discovered by the deliveryman. (Note to self. Should cut down on watching Investigation Discovery shows.)
