"Other"? Nice! Thanks for that, Google, why bother with the rest?
Apparently he once spent over $1M to charter a yacht and throw nonstop parties during the Monaco Grand Prix. Hard to feel sorry for someone who pisses away $1M in 3 days on parties. As if the multiple convictions for fraud, espionage, and embezzlement weren't enough...
Oh well, (supposed) straw man still beats ad hominem!
I actually agree with you that there are tons of good applications for *new* innovation in high-efficiency solar panels (the point of the article). But given $5 calculators have *already* been available for 30 years, sorry, it just isn't one of them
Wow, now that's *2* AC/DC-related joke comments you have ruined, Captain Serious...
Actually, turns out the PS4 *does* do all of what was claimed for the PS Vita - you can play PS4 games on the Vita over Wifi including pausing and continue.
Their sleep/wake is a lot slower than promised, true. But it's a big improvement over the PS3, and it also does finally let you go back to the system menu while the current app/game is paused...
Until that one time you are forced at gunpoint in a dark alley to calculate a cube root!
And, actually, seriously bad example - who cares about the battery life of a shitty $5 calculator when these days you can solve differential equations on your phone? Maybe you *should* have done a bit of research first...
Actually, no, apparently you do not enjoy a good musical pun or a good hard rock band. If you did you'd know that glass does nothing to stop AC/DC.
No, but it doesn't mean it's noteworthy, either. If you or I wanted to spend 10 years to create a crappy, useless OS, we probably could. But why?
This is my favorite sentence from the article.
Apparently MCGA = My Circumcised Godlike Appendage.
Above posts already answered the question, though. Biometrics make no sense when the point is not really authentication (which assumedly in a clean room was already done) but identification. Just use an RFID tag. Done.
Yeah, probably true. But I just couldn't help quoting Monty Python to make a point...
Yep - you can go look it up on any number of articles for confirmation, but the current state of sapphire screens is that they are heavier/thicker, more brittle, require more power due to lower transmission of light, and are much more expensive.
The *only* advantage right now is sapphire is almost impossible to scratch with normal use (assuming you don't routinely carry piles of loose diamonds around in your front pocket). Hence it's used for lenses, the new fingerprint-recognition, home button, and the iWatch screen, where scratch resistance is the #1 concern.
Sounds like a typical socialist to me. No solutions, only complaints
Except for universal health care, higher standards of living, better working conditions, and lower crime rates, what has any socialist government ever done for its people?
Not sure if you are being sarcastic or not, but I'd say it's true!
The French workforce may strike more (and be particularly obnoxious about it, shutting down highways and city centers), but they also get more vacation, better hours, better pay, full healthcare, and retirement. American workers have lost all of their power, which is why they are increasingly losing all of their benefits and living wages. Welcome to "unfettered capitalism".
Also apparently if a chargeback is due to bad practice on the merchant side (which in this case it clearly is) they charge an additional fee/fine to the merchant when doing the chargeback. Is anyone surprised VISA, etc set up the system so they make money either way?
