The time to ditch Java was 10 years ago.
They are simply saying that Google should obey French law when serving French citizens,
That is not what it sounds like to me:
"For Google, the answer is worldwide," said Ms. Falque-Pierrotin, when questioned late last year about the scope of the European privacy ruling. "If people have the right to be delisted from search results, then that should happen worldwide."
As much of life does, this reminds me of a Far Side cartoon where a boy is sitting in front of a chalk board as his father writes equations on it, and to the right there is a broken window. To paraphrase the caption, 'Of all punishments Jimmy most hated his father's physics lectures.'
The author of the article states that the spiral probably is not really logarithmic, though it is a very good fit. He also makes a physics based model using the acceleration of gravity.
This is dumb. Lena headshot is the standard image for virtually every image processing publication in the past 25 years. It's just a headshot for crap's sake.
Some people just like to complain.
Millennials know who Snowden is because they watch the Daily Show.
The real difference is that older people are more likely to be fearful of whatever boogey man du jour the government is pushing. When I was a little kid, my grandparents really were afraid of communists. When I was a teenager, I was told by older folks what horrible stuff marajuana was, and how it would definitely ruin your life. In 2002 I was having a discussion with an older co-worker, who was a really smart guy, and he told me that he was concerned and scared about Sadam Hussein having weapons of mass destruction.
Today government officials tell us we are supposed to be afraid of terrorists, and that Snowden hurt their ability to fight these ubiquitous terrorists.
I do not know why, but as people age, they watch more TV, become more fearful about the state of the world, and buy the official propaganda. I'm am trying to avoid this.
Comments like this leaving me wondering why anyone should bother giving two weeks notice. Just tell the company at the end of the day, "I'm leaving and not coming back."
Apparently Steam has made it very easy for develop cross-platform, so with great ease developers can target multiple systems. This is great for Steam and the end users who may have multiple gaming platforms.
Windows barfs on Civ V, but Linux runs it well!
This article reads like the hack job that it is.
So as part of my investigative reporting class at New York University, my students and I
Something tells me that these people do not know a lot about science or drug evaluation, but do know a lot about trying to make a big splash with an article that "exposes" wrongdoing.
Here's a small dose of reality: All studies and clinical trials have things wrong with them. Everytime I read a study in JAMA and the NEJM, I can point out half a dozen things that should have been done differently. When evaluating whether a drug or procedure or implant is effective you always have to read these studies with a critical eye, and consider all the evidence (laboratory, clinical, statistical, etc.) when making a decision.
The fact that some "investigative reporting" students found problems with clinical studies is hardly surprising given how many details the federal government regularly documents and records.
Apparently you are under the misguided perception that the FDA does drug development. That is incorrect. The FDA does product evaluation, which is something that private industry only does because they are forced to. And I can tell you that there is no collection of scientists in the world who know more about product evaluation than there are at the FDA.
Relying on the open/wiki opinion of every Tom, Dick, and Harry is much better than using objective scientific blinded clinical trials. Yeah, that will work.
we really haven't progress much aside from getting driver support and Android (though the biggest mobile player, has an OS that runs less efficient than iOS, BB, WP7).
WTF? Well, Android is Linux, and well, it is the biggest mobile player, but... Linux will never amount to anything.
Who modded up this shit?
Yes, we should give that obviously highly valuable wireless spectrum to cell phone companies for free! Because they will pass those savings directly to us, and not horde the profits for themselves!
Is Tizen running X-windows?
That is one thing I like about my N900: I can pretty easily compile old x-windows programs, and I can ssh to a remote machine and pop up a remote program. Or I can just copy my python-gtk scripts to my phone and they just work.
