An absolute requirement for me is a phone with an SD card slot. After I realized my phone has a bootloader lock, I tried to find one with an SD slot AND unlocked bootloader. I couldn't find one. It seems the HTC One M8 and Motorola Atrix 2 seem to fulfil my requirements. Thanks.

This is nice, but there's still a problem with carriers locking the bootloader on smartphones. This means one cannot easily or reliably change the OS to something more suitable. I'd like to install CyanogenMod on my phone, but I learned after I got it that my carrier locks the bootloader.
Since the beginning of the Pi, a big problem has been its lack of an audio-in jack. Instead tinkering about with that has required us to fiddle around with USB-based audio interfaces. Ick.
I used to live in Southern California. It's a gangland hellhole.
Well, Unix systems had virtual desktops for around 20 years now. I wonder what other old tech they've put into it and crowing about inventing it.
Let's start with Redhat cleaning up the mess that a sysadmin has to slog through to set up and run a Red Hat machine.
I'm starting to get irritated with press releases like this. I'm seeing all these breakthroughs in medicine, but it's only for mice. The latest of these that got my goat was an every-other-day injection that turns off type-2 diabetes. Instead of monitoring blood sugar and calculating insulin doses, a diabetic would inject this stuff every other day and insulin resistance would be gone and the body would be once again able to regulate itself.
Dice and Monster have the user interface down pretty good. A big problem, though, is with those employers who use those sites but then redirect applicants to their own broken application system -- or even worse, some broken application system provider like taleo.net. The first time you use that site, it fools you into thinking that once you put in your stuff, you'll be good for any other business that collects resumes through taleo.net. Not so. Each and every time you have to go through an account setup, then type in all your information, answer a bunch of questions, etc.
It sounds like you're referring to somone from a thousand years ago suddenly being dropped into modern society. Suppose someone from a thousand years ago gets to our time by being immortal. Unless our immortal were a hermit, then that person would be constantly exposed to society and adapt to changes. There wouldn't be the kind of bewilderment you're talking about. For an interesting story along these lines, watch the movie "The Man From Earth".
Next lets hope that the US, Canda, and Europe abandon DSL.

More often than not, the enemy of your enemy is just another enemy.
Ever since high speed trading became a thing, I've been thinking that a delay of around a minute would be ideal to prevent the shinanigans associated with the same.
The gist of the reason for not taxing churches is because of they tend to provide charity.
