The cold war was over. reagan kept it going. That idiot raised more taxes on Americans than any other president; ran up the most massive deficits; ran like a coward from lebanon after he had been told to NOT go there; etc. etc.
That man, along with W, were 2 of the worst fucking president that America has had.

FreedomFirst, for having worked where you have, then you know that nukes are expensive and we really do NOT want to do this.
O tried to get Russia AND China to work on verifying and lowering the warhead counts. China refuses to participate.

However, if another nations top leaders believes that a nuke war IS winnable, and is building new warheads underground, along with creating a massive shelter, such as 3000 miles of underground tunnels, then by cutting our number down, it invites first strike.
And if you ran the numbers, then you know the ONLY way to stop such leaders, is to prevent them from thinking that a nuke war is winnable.

Features don't come for free. But really Apple could avoid this whole problem if they didn't block downgrading. Let people try if they think it'll run fast enough on the oldest supported device, then let them change their minds If it doesn't.

But the problem is they want to prevent jail breaking and as a consequence downgrading is rare.

Seriously, this guy has written about Tesla for a number of years. Yet, he has always been negative on them, and WRONG.

The global EV market will grow from 65,000 units in 2012 to 450,000 in 2020; and yet, pure evs nearly doubled in 2013 to 111K and on-track to double last years sales in 2014. Heck, at the end of 2015, Tesla ALONE will be producing 50K cars / year.
and here, he gripes about Tesla as being a large unknown, and not likely to hit its numbers.

Basically, Anderman is NOT about batteries, but just an industry troll, with lousy ability to make accurate predictions.

How Flickr Is Courting the Next Generation of Photographers 97

Posted by samzenpus
from the next-generation dept.
First time accepted submitter Molly McHugh writes Flickr Vice President Bernardo Hernandez explains how the beloved photo platform is targeting a new generation that's addicted to smartphones. “10 or 15 years ago it was expensive and complicated to explore the world of photography,” Hernandez said. "Very few people could afford that—[it is] no surprise the best photographers 20 years ago were older people. We believe all of that is changing with the mobile [photography] revolution."

The article you're probably thinking of is this one. It was effectively Adobe's response to an inquiry into software pricing by the ACCC (Australian equivalent of the FTC) last year (along with claiming that the increased cost was due to language translations...last I checked we speak English here).

Apple's AU tax is 10%, which doesn't make traveling to the US even remotely economic.

Things equal to nothing else are equal to each other.
