Maybe not. The law says they need to charge shipping costs, so unless their couriers are charging them â0.01 they are probably not complying. They are just hoping that it takes the authorities a long time to get around to forcing them to charge the real price, which will be obfuscated as much as possible, by which time the will have forced even more of the competition out of business.
They looked over the channel and saw what has happened in the UK. Most places are what we call "clone towns", which all have exactly the same set of chain shops. There are very few independents left in most places. Choice is non-existent, as even where there are multiple chains they both tend to carry the same products and only differentiate (slightly) on price.
There is a limit, but it is way above the 326 PPI of a "retina" display. You only have to compare such display to other phones with higher PPIs (pretty much any medium to high end model made in the last couple of years) to see that.
Google Now, or something like it. Forget about messing around with shortcut buttons and apps, I just want something that tells me what I need to know when I look at it. For example, as I get up to leave work I want to vibrate and notify me of traffic on my usual route. When I get to the airport I want my flight info displayed with the gate number.
Throw in some basic health monitoring (steps, maybe heart rate), a round face (square just looks stupid for some reason) and wireless charging. Most importantly it needs to be comfortable, and I'd expect it to be durable and waterproof so I can wash it off every now and then. Anti-bacterial coating would be nice too.
The Moto 360 is looking good on this front, except perhaps for the strap. It remains to be seen how well it works though.
How many Americans signed up after 9/11 to fight for their country and people? How many people sign up every time a drone blows up a wedding in Afghanistan?
Actually, anything with practically opaque internals is a potential security hole
While true it doesn't change the fact that we know for sure that the NSA and GCHQ are extremely bad offenders. Maybe others are at it too, but all we can do is act on the information we have and that information says that American and British products are routinely bugged.
80% of the world's phone calls certainly don't run through the US. A call placed locally in France stays in France. Why would they route it over the Atlantic and back, adding noticeable delay?
Can you link to some of your old pre-Snowden posts where you made those claims? As far as I am aware very few people were claiming that 4 in 5 phone calls were being recorded in the US, and they certainly had no evidence to back up their claims.
And each bullet costs just two times the GDP of the entire village the terrorist is hailing from!
Each bullet creates two more "terrorists", or "freedom fighters" as they were known back in the 80s when they were our friends.
The best thing to do is provide aid from a distance, but otherwise don't get involved. No troops, no arming one side or the other, just food and medicine. The Islamists were losing until we destabilized those countries to the point where they could start winning.
This is a common misunderstanding of how solar fits into the current grid. Demand is highest during peak solar hours. Even if you don't use the power in your own home it gets exported to the grid and runs the air-con and PCs where you work, or some industrial process.
Since the daytime peak consumption is supplied by sources that can ramp up and down, including coal, solar has a huge positive environmental impact.
APC used to be good, but these days most of their range is crap. They went the same route as DeWalt and many other once good brands, relying on their name to sell rather than continued quality.
Also, they are a US company making things that connect to your network/computer, so you have to worry about the NSA. A surge protector filtering your entire internet connection as it comes into your house would be a fantastic place for a bug.
Oscilloscopes are not very good for testing audio equipment. Most only have 8 bit ADCs, or 12 bit at best. There is plenty of good test equipment out there, like spectrum analyzers and THD analyzers, but oscilloscopes only reveal the most glaring of problems I'm afraid.
It is quite true that everyone spied on everyone else but that was because of fear and intimidation tactics used by the regime.
Sounds a lot like what they are doing in the UK at the moment with paedophilia. They are actually talking about making it a law not to report suspicions now.
Thousands of dollars for speakers that are no better than ones costing a few hundred dollars. Klipsch are well into audiophile mega-money bullshit land I'm afraid.
