That was my point exactly. In fact, it could have been made easily replaceable.
And looking at my 13in MBP (mid-2014) from below and it has a nice "seam" going all around the back plate. And yes, you can easily remove it and gain access to the battery.
So yeah it does have a "seam" and your argument is quite weak in the case of apple laptops.
Should't that be 20G^2 ?;)
For thousands of years humanity has had a pretty comfortable relationship with death (even two hundred years ago there were 'wakes' held in the family home for several days in many developed nations). Historically, attempting immortality has tended to go hand in hand with delusion, disconnection from reality, and/or mental illness.
I think its the other way around. People throught the history were usually very religious. Religion was/is a way to cope with loss of loved ones, death and offers a consolidation in a concept of afterlife. So the guy who was going in a dangerous war campaign, fishing in the open sea etc at least had a "guaranteed place in heaven/valhalla/zeus's dinner table". I think the natural state is to be afraid of death, or have a great aversion to it.
Nowadays people are not so religious anymore (at least in the developed world), or are pro-forma religious and highly doubt all the stories about afterlife. No wonder that as you get older (from adulthood) you are absolutely averse to death.
Exactly, and wolves lost their 'wolveness' and become what we call today dogs.
Well, you know when the person is in some country or not. That's one of the reasons we have borders and databases. And if the guy is illegaly in some country, that is completely different kind of problem.
I think the point is concerns the poster's location. So if you post something in country X then you have to abide by country X's laws. It doesn't matter if you post through 20 proxies or not.
And this got me thinking, how can they outlaw strong encryption anyway?
If I send you a file which contains random garbage, how is that different from a file/text encrypted? I don't think there is a way for them to prove that you were using encryption beyond reasonable doubt.
All of this trying to outlaw strong encryption completely pointless.
As far as I know, there aren't a lot of Catholics strapping bombs to themselves, and chanting, "In the name of the Father, the Son, and the holy Ghost, amen.", detonating it on the end of "amen".
Oh, but they would! if you are living in a very very poor country, with no law enforcement and no future, I'm certain that this would breed extremism and of violent sort probably. Whatever the dominant religion there is.
Trying to portray christianity or some US denominations as somehow peaceful is silly. Just because those religions are operating under a developed society where there is a rule of law (in broad sense), forces them to behave. They would go out of control if given the chance.
Instead of making Chrome usable on mac laptops, we get emoji support...
Guys, just fix the high CPU/battery usage already please. Thanks!
I just couldn't watch any episode he was in as I would pass out from cringing. Luckily, I didn't miss anything.
Big Brass Ones are kind of required at this level.
I don't agree. It is just a matter of training. While I'm no spaceship captain I was in couple of quite tight spots where the probability of loss of life of my crewmembers and me was quite high. Shouting and panicking over the communications channel helps absolutely no on,e and I would be very much surprised if the Apollo 13 or some other Captain was screaming on the radio to Houston.
It is just drill, drill and drill more. You don't think much, everything is done almost by reflex. So you are crediting those those brave guys with a bit too much. I've even read somewhere that in tight situations a very small minority will panic, other will keep their wits about them.
So you get a discount on paying cash for the car?
I always thought this is normal but I went and bought a car with cash and was surprised that I couldn't get even a cent of discount or some upgrade package on it.
Asked why and the guy just shrugged and said that if I pay by monthly installments it doesn't make any difference to them because the bank pays the full price of the car to the dealer and then the payments are between you and the bank.
This is in Croatia though, dunno how it is in the rest of EU.
Yeah, but then all the fashionable blogosphere would decry the materials used and call it the koreanization of the one american way.
Same thing I told myself, but instead of law school I should have gone to maritime school. By my age now I could have been a staff captain on a cruise ship or even captain/master in few years time with no problem at all. And that means triple the salary and better benefits.
Instead, I'm looking at our deck officers on our ships who can barely tell the difference between port and starboard. For great majority of them, maritime school was the only one they could actually complete.
But what can you do, life is too short to look back.
