Phones have big screens now, so they need armor anyway. So since you're going to put armor on the phone, you want the phone to get thinner, so that the phone with a case on it is still thin. Just making the phone thin allows the user to put whichever case on it they like, so they get to personalize their phone and you don't have to try to anticipate their needs, instead letting the whole world do that. And that's why having the camera really doesn't matter. In fact, having the bezel around it protrude from the camera probably helps protect that side from scratches. What's the problem, planned to slot-load the phone?
As a result,
Is there anything in this whitelist?
And don't come back with the "US is too biiiiig!" excuse. You have electricity, water and gas, don't you?
No, no I don't. I have electricity, but I get water out of the ground and have gas brought in on a truck.
Even with the new rules that for-profit "ridesharing" (i.e. independent taxi service) can't use the carpool lane, ANYONE with more than one person in a car not charging the passenger gets to use the lane,
Right. Because someone is charging for something, they're not permitted to use the lane. That's prejudicial, since both people who are not charging and people who are charging but have a license to do so are able to use the lane. So it's not ANYONE, it's ANYONE YOU APPROVE OF.
Pardon my ignorant question, but how is it a problem to have traction control? Wouldn't it be enough to glue traction strips to the feet or something?
Real animals have traction control.
I believe the primary reasons are more likely to do with distance and communication.
But there's no reason to believe that.
The idea of trying to manage a network of stores across the country when communication was by post or expensive phone calls just simply didn't make sense.
What? Why not? Cars are expensive items, phone calls are minimal by comparison. If you have an order for a car, you drop the form in the post. At least, they did back then.
In fact, the reasons are as stated. The manufacturers want to make cars at X dollars, which requires building Y cars. Right now there are cars which can't be sold piled up all over the world, for reasons like these and others (e.g. "the economy, stupid")
I was at home with a bad cold a couple of weeks ago when the internet exploded with hate against me over some kind of EULA situation that I had nothing to do with.
Yeah, some kind of EULA situation, like basically outlawing for-pay Minecraft services including hosting, selling packages of items, etc. In short, making most of the best MC servers illegal. The fact that he has nothing to do with it any more suggests that he should indeed uninvolve himself.
Itâ(TM)s not about the money. Itâ(TM)s about my sanity.
He's still a hypocrite given his explosion of hate over Oculus Rift, especially after this statement. He deserves our derision, and he's getting it.
Sorry, what's an "RO filter"?
Reverse osmosis, which uses water pressure both to push water through a plastic membrane (the osmosis part) but also to back-flush the filter. An "efficient" RO filter wastes about 10 parts of water for each 1 part filtered, but we have a well and a septic system so no harm done really.
In your view, the fact that people were given for free a piece of music is something they should rightfully complain about?
You know how frustrating it is when your computer downloads updates while you're trying to watch a video? Now combine that with the potential to accidentally hear a U2 song while you're trying to listen to something that someone would program intentionally and you'll get the picture.
People aren't complaining about free music. They're complaining about automatic download of shitty music. If they wanted that, they could have signed up for it. There's whole websites based around the idea.
He already found a solution, he's not going to follow your hostile advice.
He found a "solution" which may lead to him becoming a shuffling zombie. It's in no one's best interest to defend that.
There are lots of arguments over when we start running out of key resource.
Well, the only key resource we're actually in danger of running out of is phosphorous. Anything else we have lots of, can recycle, or can substitute for.
The unused hand only comes into play for extremely violent maneuvering; huge hand-over-hand steering inputs.
Or if something serious happens, like a wheel falls off. Keep both hands on the wheel.
It is against the law pretty much everywhere. However that law is enforced pretty much nowhere. It is just simply too difficult to enforce it, as a police officer has to catch the person in the act to even write a ticket. And then the ticket is so laughably small in terms of the monetary penalty as to be pointless to even write.
Once you successfully stick them with driving while using a cellphone, you have the basis to also slap them with driving while distracted, if they're speeding reckless endangerment as well...
Wait, so anyone who has more than one person in their car and doesn't charge them for it is part of the "protected class"?
That doesn't even make any sense as an interpretation of what I said, given what it was in response to.
No, as per TFS it bears load at the joints, where it's going to put more strain is on the skeletal system.
