So jailbreaking can actually help the security of your phone before Apple has a chance to fix it. One more reason for jailbreaking beyond the usual stuff.
I noticed a few people reacting to the 3,727, as if it was some sort of brute-force attack to get a URL.
If that was 3,727 requests to the http server, I think that wouldn't be very much. That is, reading a web page with graphical elements would, I would think, involve a dozen or so http requests -- more if there were lots of little icons and what not. Two journalists looking at a dozen such web pages a few times each would run up that number pretty quickly. (Can someone with more networking experience than I have check my thinking?)
And, of course, a decent firewall logs all requests, including legitimate requests.
So, I would guess that this is just the politician grabbing a number that sounds large to him, and ascribing significance it doesn't have.
By GISS data 2009 was tied for the 2nd warmest year on record and baring a major volcanic eruption 2010 is poised to become the warmest year on record due to the El Nino we're in right now and the solar cycle ramping up on top of the global warming carrier signal.
In Mississippi they are no longer allowed to ask if you want to be an organ donor when renewing your drivers license, they default to "no". My mother found this out after she got her license renewed a few years ago and they had removed her organ donor status.
Which is why I'm in two minds about this. Placebos are effective in a number of cases, and belief in the effectiveness of the placebo has been shown to increase this. If giving people a glass of water and telling them that it's magic pixie juice boosts their immune system and avoids the need to give them antibiotics, why not do that?
The dilemma of the white lie. Ultimately it's a question of personal moral philosophy but I think it demeans the person being told the lie in this case. It also undermines the authority of the medical practitioner if you can't trust them not to lie to you "in your best interest."
Sure, someone might have to change a few things in the code to make the program they wrote for the Hero usable on the Droid, but then you just float 2 versions of the software on the android marketplace
Then the problem becomes how to pay for all the phones on which to test your app and the service plans that come bundled with the phones. For a small business, this adds up fast.
>>> I also understand that 2.5 million picocuries per liter sounds like a huge amount
Then change your units. "The plant only leaked 0.003 millicuries per liter of water. Virtually noting."
If you don't get contributor agreements you didn't get ownership of the contributed code. You can't assert a copyright on code you don't own. This was a key element in the SCO/Linux suit. SCO didn't own the code it was claiming infringement on.
Don't compare floating point numbers solely for equality.
