I think internally they have such a tool and use it in testing all the time. I don't predict them exposing it any time soon. It was released by accident, but pulled very quickly. And their changes to permissions on the Play Store go the opposite way.
Its also all legal C++. Just because it doesn't use the advanced features doesn't mean it isn't C++. I'd argue that for something this simple its even better code this way.
1)Not necessarily. Something as simple as not enabling that code for a month after release would get it by reviews. They aren't reviewing source code, they're reviewing behaviors. Just like you don't speed when there's a cop right behind you you wouldn't connect when you're being watched
2)They ask for a lot of permissions because the permissions aren't fine grained enough, and because polsih requires it. For example I had an app that did sound effects when you tapped a key. The OEM requested that we turn off sounds when the user is in a call so they wouldn't play on the other end. This reasonable request required a new permission (CALL_STATE IIRC), which actually gave us much more info than we wanted (we got to find out when calls started, ended, and the connection number which we didn't need). But if you just looked at our permissions your reaction would be "why do you need to know who I'm calling"? We didn't there was just no way to request less info, we didn't even look at the number.
One of the big problems was that Google redesigned the play store to be less scary and show fewer permissions. One of those was that any app could request internet permission without it showing up. That was just wrong.
What we really need is the ability to turn on and off specific permissions by app. Perhaps with the ability to limit internet permission to certain IPs/URLs per app. That would solve most of the problem.
True enough- IF you can prove it was a murder and not an accident.
Can you prove intent with global climate change? If you ignore the utterly non-scientific process of "scientific consensus", do you even have enough data left to prove the murder weapon?
And in the long run, does it matter? We're still left with the decision to either adapt or die; we're far too late for any mitigation attempt to work. Blame the culprit is a waste of time in this case.
Your math is just wrong all over. You're using the wrong formulas and confusing yourself.
If your monthly payment is 1000 and you pay an extra 50, you take 50 off the principle. That means next year you pay 50*rate less in interest for all years in the future. Assuming you don't change the payments (and assuming fixed rate loans), this means for the same amount of monthly money you pay off 50*rate more each year. That's a savings of rate compounded annually. That's all the return you get.
That's why "debt doesn't matter" when the Republicans are in charge.
In what way is insuring a fair and free market collectivism?
Once one of the most powerful women in the American corporate world, Fiorina announced her bid on ABC News' "Good Morning America" show.
"Yes, I am running for president. I think I'm the best person for the job because I understand how the economy actually works. I understand the world, who's in it, how the world works," she said.
Fiorina registers near the bottom of polls of the dozen or so Republican hopefuls and has never held public office.
But she has already attracted warm receptions at events in the early voting state of Iowa where she is positioning herself as a conservative, pro-business Republican highly critical of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Fiorina was forced by HP to resign in 2005 as the tech company struggled to digest Compaq after a $19 billion merger."
Cue all HP employees, current and former, who have nothing but love for Carly F.

Species that are unable to adapt have been going extinct without mankind's help for 9/10ths of the planet's history. For the remaining 1/10th, we've been a major motivator of evolution, that's true- Dodos and wooly mammoths and the like. But we are also to the point with GMO research that we can be a major cause of increased adaptation- we can speed up evolution, and likely will, because beef is tasty (among many other species that are directly useful to us, such as bees). Speaking of that last, just saw a report on OPB about a pair of beekeepers with a unique solution to colony collapse disorder- they're breeding stronger queen bees that can live through Oregon winters.
If mankind wants to survive, food needs to be our top priority. Luckily, as I mentioned someplace above I think, food production is also an answer to excess atmospheric carbon. Especially if we keep locking our own carbon up in airtight containers buried in concrete when we die.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says that the new system, which was delayed by his legal troubles and the banking industry blockade against the group, is the final result of “four competing research projects" WikiLeaks launched in recent years. He adds that it has several less-visible submission systems in addition to the one it's now revealed. “Currently, we have one public-facing and several private-facing submission systems in operation, cryptographically, operationally and legally secured with national security sourcing in mind,” Assange writes.
