I still do it to see what the doodle is....
but again, we aren't looking at individual devices needing that much bandwidth, we're looking at a tower piping out the bandwidth to be shared by 100s if not 1000s of users. But then, we can also look at the business application here where instead of running lines into a business, you can get 5g physical receivers.
Because, you know, we never ever actually create new things that are larger and need more bandwidth to transfer. re: standard definition vs high definition. If the market creates a capability, there will be someone or something that will seek to fill that capability.
My coffee maker (12 cups) cost me $40. A large bag of ground coffee (dunkin donuts brand) costs me $14 (160 cups). 100 count of filters is about $2.00. So,
.02(filter) + .08(coffee) = $.10 per cup of coffee. The filters are biodegradable as are the grounds as is the remaining undrunk coffee (rare). The keurig route would cost me far far far far more since it's about $7.99 for a 12 count of pods...... yeah losing money.
I barely ever touched a computer through my formative years. It wasn't until I got out of the Army that I began using a computer as something more than a console to play Civilization and watch porn on the internet. But, once I did, I found that I did have a knack for making sense of things and developing software, debugging and databases. Now, it's how I make my living and it's a damn good living. If I I had had the opportunity to explore this earlier on, I would be much further along in experience and things would have come much, much easier.
And there is also something to be said about an editor that helps you identify an issue, even when in another file so that you don't have to try to decipher a cryptic log message due to a variable not being instantiated correctly in a different file. Sure, I can use NotePad++, and I do quite often for really simple scripts/reading files, but when I really want to sit down and knock out something that's more complex than "Hello World!", I'll fire up netbeans and have at it. It's also helped me learn quite a few languages due to showing me where I made my mistakes (like grading a paper in school) and helping me to debug.
no one said you had to play within the rules to keep the category "game" in place, thus making the K.M. winnable.
So they create an API then demand that no one uses it?
Highly doubtful. Even Suckerburg isn't stupid enough to spend that kind of money on users he already has. TFA even states that it is an attempt to recoup the users FB has been losing in certain countries where WhatsApp is dominating.
It's about mining data from 450 million users. No one cares that it's nothing new. The customers are what Facebook is buying.
Or maybe, just maybe, we'll finally get out way and have them stop illegally collecting our information.
UPS is one of the worst ways to have a package delivered. Every order(19) I have had shipped to me in the last 2 years, I have had to go pick up at a distribution hub. They will continually leave a notification on the door telling me that they couldn't deliver my package because the address is incorrect.... Well, HOW THE HELL DID YOU LEAVE THE NOTE?
They can implement carrier grade NAT and continually update it and expand it, they do not have to buy address blocks anymore or worry about upgrading equipment/infrastructure unless it goes down.
Verizon is still giving me a public address to my home systems.
Not even in the same ballpark as to how it is done.
