If only there was some way to prevent people from harassing me on this app. I could uninstall it, or just not use it - naw we'll just pressure the company to disable it in my whole area.
Sure, it'll just cost you $10,000 for a lawyer.
for funding the never-ending series of wars the US has been involved in since World War II. Without the unlimited ability to create money out of thin air, we wouldn't have all this amazing military hardware we have to justify it's existence for by blowing up people around the world on a continual basis.
Until fiber optic cable cable to the home is as common as copper it won't be a suitable replacement for POTS.
I *almost* agree. Saying we should keep POTS until it can be replaced with fiber, however, is like saying everyone should stick with driving Yugos until it becomes feasible for everyone to buy a Ferrari. Wireless technologies are a good interim solution until fiber can be deployed ubiquitously, especially in very low density areas.
I'm sure the employee's reaction was the same as everyone else's: Yahoo still has email?
I don't think Japan cares too much anymore as I read an article a few months ago that they have developed technology to slant-drill underwater. They'll just tap the oil reserves sideways from their own land.
They look uninspired now, because after they came out they were widely copied. Take a look at what laptops looked like before the powerbooks came out in the 90's. Chunky looking lap-bricks with trackballs hanging off the side. One year after the powerbook, nearly every laptop was black or dark gray with an integrated trackball in the palm rest. Ditto the Apple II - computers either looked like dumb terminals with CPU boxes bolted onto them, or mad scientist experiments.
Fines? Prison? How about just firing those not doing their job?
So what other times do they invoke taxpayer privacy?
So the punishment for not securing taxpayer data is... nothing? So why bother fixing anything?
Couldn't they have chipped off a tiny piece of it's shell and used radiocarbon dating?
Shoot in 50 years we'll have terminators running around firing micro heat-seeking missiles like the guy from KISS had in Runaway.
The interface will look remarkably like Ghost Recon. The l33t soldiers will use mouse and keyboard, the dual analog will be for the l00ser grunts
Absolutely. But then the problem would be giant intelligent alien bugs.
... they mean it's something new scientists haven't seen before, and haven't figured out yet.
Kinda like the same way you meet someone you don't know, you are dumbfounded by them.
