So I wouldn't be surprised if emacs does lose out to lighter rival editors that better suit the quick-fix pattern. All the power and flexibility and add ons that emacs has built up (and which weigh it down) are largely redundant on a modern desktop. I think I would prefer nano or joe to vi/vim (and its annoying split personality modes) but the latter tends to be ubquitous so its a good idea to learn it.
The worst Uber car I've ever been in was cleaner, newer, and driven by a more pleasant and friendly driver than the best taxi I've ever been in.
Wow your anecdote changes everything. Aside from the cleanliness I'm sure you made sure to check the car & driver's insurance covered you in case of an accident. And that the vehicle road safety certification was in order. And that the driver had no past criminal convictions. No?
LOL Microsoft developed an analog keyboard. OR they just remembered how their palm pilots worked and ported it to android..
To be fair to Microsoft, they did have handwriting recognition in PocketPC devices too - several modes in fact from simple Palm-like chars, to handwriting and a keyboard. That said I found my Palm Pilot's system to be very reliable once I learned all the funny strokes for each letter. PocketPC was always hit and miss and I used the keyboard mode the most.
It seems pretty obvious to do something like this in a watch and I guess it's better than nothing but it highlights why smart watches have such a long way to go to be useful for much.
It's not legal just because you saw it on the internet.
There are plenty of apps which will hail a licenced cab, e.g. Hailo. It's the car and driver that matter and not the manner in which they were dispatched.
It is a bloody insult that you need a permit to drive someone from A to B *IN YOUR OWN PROPERTY*.
Thing is, a taxi is usually treated as a form of public transport. The standard that you the driver and your vehicle are held is consequently that much higher. That's why the regulation exists.
It's bizarre that you conflate the issue with how much tax someone might pay on their wages.
It looks like Greenpeace has different priorities - the sails mean they can turn off their engines to save fuel, extend their operational range and it naturally fits with their image. Looks like a really cool boat.
And yes UKIP is a far right party and it is racist. It's a party with a long record of racist and far right incidents and even its own leader has a record stretching back to school. One well documented incident has teachers writing a complaint to the head about Farage's racist behaviour and singing of Hitler Youth songs. If this were any other politician they would be drummed out of office. UKIP supporters just pretend it doesn't matter.
