It's not jealousy. It's envy.
Modem? Damn whippersnapper! Get off my lawn!
Your phone will have battery life of 18 seconds and will have a surface temperature of 245C.
They have MSNBC to do that.
Just about every sound card ( and everything else ) in the last ten years had been made in a factory in China. What is to stop the PLA from slipping just this kind of malware into a sound card chip? Maybe they can even activate and update using sounds from a television.
There are some big advantages to replacing the income tax with a sales tax: Cost of compliance and Personal Privacy. Your personal cost to comply now would be zero. You are no longer have to send a report to the government every year. Because it is none of their business how much you make.
Yes if you are in a business which sells things, you have to pay the tax, but in most states you are doing that already. And your burden to report everyone's income is gone so you are saving time and money there.
I am pretty sure Apollo contracts were not awarded on the basis of friendships and winks and words unspoken.
It is also called graft.
They awarded a 700M$ contract without bidding to a company with ties to the Obama campaign and to people high up in the administration.
As to be expected, the company was not competent and failed.
$1000 does not sound like all that much for a professional with paying clients.
Is nothing to be proud of.
The electric car thing will never work until the power can be taken from the road. Like slot cars.
Every time I have tried the new mobile site my experience was not good.
I can't even scroll down easily and when I do it jumps into an article that I didn't select.
And it doesn't look good.
Maybe it's opera mobile's fault. Maybe you need to think on this some more.
If the code is open, we might then have a notion of the scope, depth, and detail with which all of us are being tracked by the party. And that would probably be shocking to all of us who thought we had some level of privacy left. So I don't expect it to be open for just that reason.
One problem with long cranks and a low bottom bracket is the possibility of hitting your pedals on the ground during a turn.
This makes is worse by making it even more likely to hit the crank arm on the ground.
You are absolutely right.
Think about the time having a car saves you.
Instead of taking a bus and needing 2 hours to go to the store, it takes 30 minutes.
Instead of riding my bicycle 2.5 hours a day back and forth to my job it is 15 minutes each way.
And so on.
Add this up over a lifetime and it is years of life saved.
So I guess you are trading time now for time at the end of your life.
Having a low Slashdot user number.
