Making Up Names Of Bills With Cleverly Crafted Backronyms Is So Fucking Annoying.
Cuban cigar smokers in the US don't have a PAC to push through changes. They're just not a big enough special interest group.
Rich people can get Cuban cigars without any problem whatsoever, embargo or not. Hell, JFK smoked Havanas during the Cuban missile crisis.
Normal rules and laws don't apply to the one percentile...
How to distinguish whether the phone user is driving a car or riding a bus?
At least you can exclude all iPhone owners from that particular test: people who can afford Apple products are so not riding busses... Or if they do, they probably know better than to whip out a multi-hundred-dollar device begging to be stolen onboard the bus.
I suppose the same way PawSense detects whether a cat or a human is using the device: when you text and drive, you have a funny way of using the device - because you're constantly switching between texting, putting down the device and driving, picking it back up after 10 seconds, and doing that over and over, as opposed to a human that's fully committed to the task of inputting text.
Ah nevermind, I got it. It's not terribly obvious though...
Look, I'm not picky or anything, and I know headlines are shortened, but what the hell does " Apple Said To Team With Visa, MasterCard On iPhone Wallet" mean?
Software monetization is basically just like anal sex. You keep on pushing until the person you're doing it to can't take it anymore. And then you keep pushing.
You seem to know a lot about monetizing anal sex...
That's how I feel too: they've turned Firefox into a cheap whore - albeit with an opt-out option.
Yet I realize they have to make money to keep bringing out new Firefox releases.
Yet... it sucks. Ads sucks. Ad-funded internet sucks.
I don't know what's worse: being blown out of the sky with explosives or having to stay in Phoenix.
I'm reminded of the old joke:
"What famous event happened in 1732?"
"George Washington was born."
"Very good. Now what famous event happened in 1743?'
"George Washington became 11 years old."
It must be an old joke alright, cuz I've never heard it, and it ain't funny.
Correct me if I'm wrong but... would you happen to be rooting for India by any chance?
The Internet of Things is a buzzword. Buzzwords don't need securing. Problem solved.
If there's one thing I've learned reading all kinds of award-winning books, is that more often than not, the award is a big warning that the book is shit, or pompous, or written specifically to woo often sophisticated, pedantic jury members into giving the award.
In short, I usually go for stuff that hasn't been awarded certain kinds of awards. The Hugo certainly seems overrated these days, and has been for many years.
By that logic, Germany is probably not a true friend of the US
Hardly any state is a true friend of the US these days - apart perhaps the UK, and even that is far from certain.
'Spying among friends is not at all acceptable,' Merkel said
And I doubt very much Turkey is a true friend of Germany: it's a economical, immigration and to a certain extent, religious threat to Germany - or at least perceived as such by a sizeable part of the German population. It's also a liability, as it's capable of singlehandedly dragging Germany into the huge Iraqi and middle-eastern quagmire if it starts to get involved and calls on NATO members to provide help.
Turkey just happens to be a member of NATO like Germany, is all. That doesn't make the two friends.
