If you can say the consumer is paying the corporation's taxes you can also say that the corporation is paying the taxes through the salary to the employee... This is patently absurd. It is bad and you should feel bad.
This person has never heard of Monrovia. I think I spelled that properly...
Do you mean a collective Animal Farm?
I wonder if we will ever have a suicide drone bomber? A small part of me wishes so as it is an amazingly nice phrase with good mouth-feel. Fortunately, the rest of me realizes this is a bad idea regardless of their target.
Vague but true - power user has a definition. It is not consumption of electricity. That was a nice try though.
If I sell you something you are not paying my house or car payment. You are paying me. If you want to take it out that far you can say that your employer is paying your cap and trade payments. Or that their customers are... They are the same thing and not remotely realistic.
Crashing through restricted airspace may not be illegal...
They are just going to shoot the next couple of people who try this. The bullets and associated court fees will be out of the tax-payers dollars so won't cost them a thing. This will deter anyone else from considering this as a viable option.
You over estimate the competency of our government. Oh, wait, you said "smart guys." My bad.
Don't you have a couple of old boxes you could run headless? Oddly it seems like we are returning to the time of dumb terminals though they have a lot more computing power these days.
I suspect that if they included cocaine for life for all iOS users they would eventually run out of money. It is not impossible.
I can buy a tablet but I have not bought one since around 2003. It was a Motion running XP. I still have it. I do not use it. I do not buy a new one because I have a phone the size of a dinner plate in my pocket and my eyes are not that bad yet. Also, I like an easy to access keyboard, not carrying around another item, so I would prefer a netbook but those all tend to suck - I have owned a half dozen and most were the best hardware available. Hmm... I wonder if there is a decent Android netbook with a decent ARM processor or if they have improved the quality of the hardware amongst the other vendors... Time to do some research and spend some fun money methinks...
I think he is saying that owning a phone does not make you a power user as your post implies.
Umm... I always get a slide out keyboard phone. They are much bigger and much better than anything I have seen from BlackBerry - and I was a BB user for years before the smartphone became a thing.
I wonder if Ishmael (Daniel Quinn) would get published today? Or 1984 or Fahrenheit 451?
