I remember seeing a job add long time ago that required 5 years experience with Java... when Java was 3 and a bit years old. That was amusing.
Don't get ahead of yourself my friend. This is just the start of the suit. Nothing says this suit will be successful, or that the resolution will be helpful to the employees even if it is successful.
I don't think it is impossible, but there will definitely be a lot of hurdles. If I recall, to get it to transform, you'll need the planes to somehow come out from the wheel wells and be controllable. You'll need the shutters to slid into place over every window. Keeping the cabin water tight will be fun while still having it function properly out of the water (most subs don't have conventional doors for instance). Of course you need air supply and ballast control, as well as the rudders and props. Definitely not an easy project.
Indeed, while the situations aren't the same, the situations speak to resolutions that we're getting the opposite of. The FRAND patents are very important tech patents, the very fact that they are vital speaks to their importance, while the design patents aren't, yet, the design patents are getting more protection than the tech patents. That really makes no sense. Maybe Samsung was abusing things, I can't really say for sure, but the reasoning that they are FRAND therefore they should be bypassable is just destructive.
This, this, and more this. People seem to always forget that you don't get exclusive access to something like this on the net. It is like guys going gaga over the cloud and misapplying the possibilities, completely ignoring that you have to server thousands, perhaps even millions of requests at once.
Pretty much. Put another way, the Patent system is being gamed now. It is like a really old server running old software, all the hacks are known and it will be serving porn within the hour. Patent system really isn't much different. The law is really old. All the cracks and exploits are now well known by the legal community, and it is now not doing its intended job, instead of the legal hackers are exploiting it.
Yeah, that looks about right.
...do to the immediate environment? I suspect the poor soul that god disintegrated would be the lucky one.
Well, I'm not so sure. Although it is wholly illogical, there is a common issue of human perception that having X associated with Y when you view X negatively, makes Y seem negative as well. I must admit, that the NRA's case is so... sloppy, it kinda makes me feel like the whole issue is likewise overblown, even though it isn't.
That depends. Several things play into crimes that are even difficult to conceal. Just because we know Joe was murdered doesn't mean we find his killer. Just because we find Joe's killer doesn't mean we can get a conviction. Even if you can get a conviction doesn't mean the crime is punished in the same way. Add to that that in the long term, a bias in enforcement can cause behavior shifts in the populous and that further complicates the matter.
Just have a directive that all city officials will be frisked at least once randomly each day. I'm sure once people see their public officials undergoing the same unwarranted searches they will be perfectly fine with it... assuming the public official don't quit first.
Indeed. A couple sites I visit have captcha's on their login pages, not account creation, login, and the really annoying ones that even I, a well sighted person, can't read about 1/2 of them. I know they want to avoid spambots, but seriously, why do I need this stuff when I already have an account? You afraid someone is going to hammer the login? Well, I can tell you implementing a simple couple second timer is far less annoying than those captcha's are.
Just to be a bit silly: Actually, you'd still be a contributing factor to the rear-ender. If you are close enough that a low speed collision pushed you ahead into the car ahead of you, you are too close. If you are speaking of a high speed collision, then I'm pretty sure the damage to the rear of your vehicle would speak just as well to the point that it wasn't your fault.
That all depends. Don't know about Comcast, but both my local providers, the modem and the router are the same thing. They are a combined device. Not even sure you can get separate ones anymore.
My thoughts exactly, this sounds great in theory until you realize that the driving populous is no where even remotely responsible or consistent enough for something like to work. Add deviants deliberately sabotaging the system in and this is just a pipe dream at best.
