Crapping up Windows PCs helps perpetuate the myth that Macs are inherently faster/better.
Agreed, but I think this will only make the problem worse, as increased use of referrer checking will redirect users from Google Images to some cheesy splash-page that serves nothing but ads.
I liked the "original context" feature with the source page displayed in a frame. I guess the change was inevitable though, it seemed like more and more asshat webmasters were using those damn "break out of frames" scripts, derailing the image search. Half the time the page was some poorly-optimized blog, so the image I was looking for was nowhere to be found on the page!
They started collaborating in 1969 with the 914 which used a VW engine.
Volkswagen and Porsche have been "related" for as long as there has been a Volkswagen. Hitler originally ordered Ferdinand Porsche to develop the Beetle in 1933.
But yes, platform-sharing is more important here than the actual corporate relationship; two otherwise-unrelated companies may co-develop a vehicle and end up with nearly identical products.
While I agree that teachers' unions (and plenty of other unions) partake in a good deal of organized thuggery, I sympathize with teachers who rightly feel threatened by "job performance" metrics. Teaching effectiveness is difficult to measure, and student performance is affected by a whole lot of factors outside of teaching.
Frankly, if I was looking for someone to blame for the crappiness of our education system, I'd probably start with the parents, then look at the politicians (including the union leadership), then the administrators. Bad teachers certainly do exist, but the problem is exaggerated. Not a lot of people want a job that's difficult, requires some education, and is generally insultingly low-paying.
If I died and went to a place that looks like New Jersey, I don't think heaven would come to mind...
They demoed E-bikes on my college campus, and with good reason- college yuppies are actually stupid and wealthy enough to buy E-bikes. I test-rode one, and it's fun, but not $2000 fun. I'll stick with my regular bike.
To make matters worse, these dumbasses ride around stupidly and create more hate for cyclists from pedestrians and motorists alike. Also, they're stimulating the bike theft market by locking up poorly. Last week I saw one locked with a U-lock around a single spoke of the front wheel and a cable through the rear wheel... the idiot didn't even think to take out the external battery.
Stop the presses, customers are being price-gouged by AT&T and Apple! Oh, the horror!
Who is going to expect sympathy over the fact that they have to pay $200 more to upgrade their iPhone?
Why is this even on the front page? Does Slashdot really worship the iPhone this much?
I do find it funny that the same people who are for unimpeded immigration are usually those who will not be in direct competition with said immigrants.
Really? I find that people who are for unimpeded immigration are usually Hispanic, and fail to comprehend that they will have to compete with the illegal immigrants that they support.
