I bet it would be
a bit of a cash cow.
This means they can hire multiple providers (generally in different regions), evaluate them against each other, encourage competition between them to lower prices, etc.
This of course, worked great for the rail industry.
The reason I switched from iOS was because personally, I *want* control over my smartphone. I want the options and customisations, and the ability to decide what keyboard to use and where my music sits. My advice to those who can't handle a few options is "get an iPhone".
Though really, I can't see why both user groups can't be catered for - have sensible defaults and basic options, and put everything else inside an "Advanced settings" button somewhere - no one is forced to tap it.
It does work on some routers and mobile hotspots! Support IS a bit hit and miss though. It comes up as non-unicode symbols on Windows (though most when out and about are in iOS or Android devices, which display it correctly)
Slashdot can't seem to print unicode stuff, but basically it's a list of symbols that might scare Whovians.
Has it ever actually happened in canon?
Far as I know all the male timelords were always male and all the female timeladies were always female. He had a granddaughter, and he doesn't refer to her as "grandperson"
I get the impression that the possibility he cited that one time that "I could come back as a woman! Or with two heads!" was probably either a) a very unlikely mutation or b) the Doctor lying, like he always does.
I think it's rather risky to post this without a question mark after the title - pretty sure I remember how "studies showed" that vegetables weren't good for you once.
I imagine it depends on the driver and whether they compensate by pausing the conversation when things need concentration etc. But I've seen people trying to drive a *shopping trolley* while talking on the phone and failing hard, so a car? Hm.
Haha yeah didn't he technically marry her or something
But true. I meant with companions. I remember reading that they didn't want him to be thought a dirty old man travelling with a young girl hence the original decision to make Susan his granddaughter
Not on TV. It's the sexual tension between 20-somethings that sells there. The Doc being older might at least reduce some of that. But then it's not really seen as pervy like in the 60s if he's lucky enough to get a 20-something drooling along after him, so I'm not sure it'd change much compared to the "let's make him a grandfather so he can have none of that hanky panky" thing they had with Hartnell.
Also going wayyyy back, Peter Purves played some crazy guy in the exact same episode that Steven Taylor was introduced
I'd imagine that they'll just go all gooey about how "distinguished" he looks, companions and all, as much as we might like to think we'll get a break from all the flirting.
When you would constantly curse... BLOODY MOUSE!
Personally I try to keep my casual online name(s) and real name separate. And Facebook private. I don't mind a prospective employer viewing my LinkedIn profile and seeing who I am professionally, but who I am in private is my business apart from the official responses given in the interview and LinkedIn etc.
I don't need my interviewer knowing that I spend a lot of free time on a my little pony fan site. I'm not that stupid.
I'm surprised this it's a surprise. It seems reasonable to assume that if you're detected in any way using Tor someone is capturing every packet and saving it away somewhere until it can be easily decrypted using future technology (imagine how powerful computers will be in another 30 years) and they can see what you were up to.
Yep, keep it in a cold dark place. England!
