June of 1997? Ain't that about the time bill gates started giving away free coffee cup holders? That's probably why lost it. You were excited about the gifts.
Because that is exactly how the free market works.
"Free market power companies." Cool, where can I get one?
The ones I have available are state-granted monopolies (fascism). They take any operating profits and pay a "healthy" dividend to investors - there's no need to invest in future-benefit infrastructure because the PUC will always give them a rate increase if they can show present supply and demand data, discounting all past squandered opportunity. It would be foolish for them to ever do anything else because they face no competitive pressure.
That's where solar comes in
Daimler and dozens of other companies have been doing battery storage power facilities for decades before Tesla existed.
Is it just that Tesla has better marketing? Because none of these other "players" have put out a press release with a website to sign up for an install in the next year, at functional prices, that I've ever seen.
Links appreciated to equivalent product, since Tesla sold out before the SolarCity offices opened in my state (the drywall is still going in).
they didn't stop to think if they should.
They definitely should. It's a great connector - everything will be using it in the near future and then for a long time. I have twenty solder-pad connectors on the way from China for a "completely unrelated" project prototype (unrelated to anything USB has been proposed for - not even for traditional "computers", really).
If you think Micro-A USB is popular, wait until you see your grandkids getting devices with USB-C. Sure, it's no Anderson Powerpole, but it's the next-best thing.
People can have their Centronics parallel, HD-15 and RJ-45 crap - I'll take something less onerous, expensive, and/or fragile any day!
At least Hot Topic owning ThinkGeek was amusing
I think, of the two, Hot Topic could have significantly grown the brand - and ultimately that would have been good for geekdom, writ large.
Not sure how the deal is being structured, but if it's a stock deal, this is bad for shareholders. Gamers aren't going to spend their cash on a bunch of crap that they can't play and non-gamer geeks aren't going to go hang around in Gamestop shopping for stuff with all the smelly gamers in there. Whatever the difference per diluted share Gamestop is bringing, that'll all get pissed away within the first year.
One presumes, though, that it's a partial cash deal and the extra dozen-million bucks or so will be split up among the managers. So
It is indiscriminate, but then, I have different job search requirements than you do, likely.
I would never put all my eggs in one or two baskets. This is a perfect match market, and one or two companies isn't enough for a good job search.
Monster.com. Dice.com. Simplyhired.com. LinkedIn.com There are millions of sites, you just have to tune your searches.
After 12 years of doing that, I became so well known that now recruiters call me, several times a week.
THIS PROGRAM HAS DONE ITS JOB
If you mean creating a small number of jobs, like hiring professional sock puppets to troll social media, to try to sway people who can't think rationally
Tell me again about how the economy will collapse without slavery - I love it when you government types talk dirty. Hey, maybe the TSA could get some training on that? A junket to Hawaii maybe?
he hasn't updated Flash in years and got hit by malvertising.
You don't have to be that bad, even. My parents' PC had Flash 12 on it and Flash 9 on it. Where did Flash 9 come from? It was installed at the same time as the updater software for their GPS device.
The whole ecosystem is toxic and hateful towards the user.
It doesn't matter what the subsidies consist of. I already know anyways which is obvious from my initial post in this thread.
There is no logical fallacy either. If company would not exist without subsidies, employees of that company would not exist either. You seem to think that somehow they would.
Oh and nice try pretending you somehow became confused and thought comments about subsidies and employees of a company meant all employees everywhere or something. My first thought after reading that was if you were really that stupid. Then i remembered that this is slashdot so its entirety possible you are but it is more likely you are a pedantic troll. Give it a rest. Any idiot knows what was said and the context it was said in. Your argument fails any reasonable examination.
Really? Put out 100 resumes. At least 5 will come back with interviews.
Oh yeah, and They're free
Sure to piss off most conservatives and liberals, is my "Catholic Pro Life" bumper sticker: Six categories, all crossed out in dripping red blood:
No Death Penalty
Humanity moved beyond pictogram-based languages for a reason, and now the internet - that paragon of human achievement - is moving us back to pictograms again. WTF?
It's about the limbic system. Alphabets are a good invention for low-bandwidth communication (including fingertips) but also "a picture is worth a thousand words".
A jury might find that a reasonable argument, but state legislatures have decided that youths need to be protected from sex so much that, like the gp said, it's a 'strict liability' law, even if the minor wants sex so bad they're willing to lie and obtain forgeries to help assist with their lies.
This is why jury nullification is so important - to keep psychopathic legislatures from incarcerating the entire population. A jury has two jobs - to judge the facts and to judge the law. Lawyers and judges try to diminish the second for their own benefit.
On the other hand
