I don't know. The Tea Party seems to have some strange economic policies, but I don't see them as big anti-science wackos.
If you want to go after someone, it probably should be the vendor that sold the crappy implementation.
I'm not a fan of more government, but since the power grid really goes beyond the company owning it, you should have regulations requiring the testing and remediation of any technical/physical security issues. That takes care of your hypothetical lazy IT Manager, the boss who blocks the good manager because it's expensive and not required, and the company who wants to keep selling equipment.
You should look at the warranty and operating environment specs for commodity and enterprise hard drives. One has a warranty that ends pretty much as soon as you open the packaging, and the other will be replaced at the manufacturer's cost for five years. One is rated to be operating a few hours a day, the other is designed for continuous operation. One rates their speed as the maximum burst transfer, the other sustained operation.
There's plenty of places that it's a bullshit term, but storage isn't one of them.
The problem is that a TB of enterprise class storage (and backup) isn't $100.
You seem to think that Netflix is choosing not to have those movies in its streaming service. I think Netflix would like to have every movie on their service.
You need to be complaining about the media companies that own that content and how they either won't license at any cost, or would only license at an absurd fee to Netflix (and thus their customers).
Microsoft really does need a preinstalled app that is just to teach you how to use the new UI.
They actually do have a manual, it's right here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/A/2/E/A2E4C3EB-99A0-47B4-A620-D2F94FCDF3E5/Windows8_WindowsRT_ProductGuide_EN.pdf
This is on page 11, it's also in the intro video shown to all new users (which is incredibly short and vague).
It's not the e-mail part that is the problem with gmail at work, it's the calendar.
On a tablet you swipe in from the right side. The hot corners mess is only for mouse access.
What's wrong with testing impairment rather than looking for a chemical concentration. What level of THC equals impairment? Wouldn't that be different for different people?
If there weren't cases of undetected error and outright fraud in peer reviewed science I would agree. Many experiments are non-trivial to reproduce and sometime the only review possible is to confirm the analysis of the researcher's data sets.
I just don't see where an exemption from examination in court proceedings protects science.
Unless you're suing them and this lets them shield the e-mail to their lab tech that says "sample set B is really screwing up our results, go ahead and shred any copies you have and I'll update the findings."
That's not true any more. Most of the infections we have to address at work are coming through the ad networks. A harmless site spinning content from a company that puts up anything where a check clears. Local radio stations are the worst with a little player surrounded by ads from various providers.
So city traffic management is stuck in the 80s?
The thing I like about the Kindle is that it's software as well as the hardware device. I have a Kindle app on my phone, desktop, laptop, and tablet, but no hardware from Amazon.
I think they're more interested in the part where you can press a button and buy the book from Amazon and keep your bookmarks and annotations.
You need to read your own link. That survey was a hoax.
