Google, WTF? Are you seriously going to settle with letting a security researcher break your security gizmo twice in a row in two days? Your credibility is on the line here... [Grabs popcorn]
Dude... Get a life. That's how we live on this side of the pond. And you should too,for your own health and sanity, and that or your family.
They're out of toilet paper, just like the Soviets.
Or the US:
This, and they only accept the International Court of Justice's jurisdiction on a case by case basis.
Europe didn't *completely* give up fighting. Let's not forget the Balkans after the break up of Yugoslavia. Or Ukraine in recent months.
Autoplaying makes zero sense on streaming sites as well. If you open multiple videos in as many tabs, you want to watch them one by one in sequence, rather than all in parallel because some punk decided that auto-playing was a good thing.
By forcing users to enter $0 when they download, don't they make the users implicitly commit to a statement that the software is worthless?
... when they attempted to regulate the value of Pi.
There was more to that story though.
The guy was pretty good at managing his Chinese programmer. I've rescued enough projects that were initiated by clients who hired cheap coders to suggest that your average non-techie manager is not going to succeed at doing the same.
So it's really a story about the rare breed of local programmers who are able to make $20k/year code grunts produce useful things instead of spaghetti. The savings aren't that spectacular upon factoring that in.
Oh, and there are intellectual property considerations to factor in as well. When selecting the very cheapest labor, you occasionally run into full time employees who are in fact working two or three "full time" jobs in addition to the occasional eLance jobs and what have you.
There's a call to rename every French paper "Charlie Hebdo" tomorrow in protest.

Sadly, though, not all carriers offer to disable voice-mail.
Yeah, just be careful with the baby pics
Sheesh... The US gets crazier by the year...
The reason it's special is because it was social. Had you worked prior to the internet being mainstream, you'd fully appreciate how going through your network of contacts and various venues for information can yield tremendous other contact and business opportunities.
Google may have simplified the process of locating information online, but at the same time it *decreased* the amount of social interactions, to a point where the typical 20-something youngster is scared sh*tless of picking up a phone to call someone.
It actually has to do with keeping know-how in-house. Consider Airbus, then consider Boeing. One is all EU-based. The other outsources in Asia. Wanna take a bet on who goes bust first?
