I think we've got girls caught up pretty well; it's time to teach boys how to work with girls as equals. We can start by teaching them that being called a girl isn't a vile insult. Help them break free of their gender stereotypes just as feminism has helped women break free of theirs.
In my experience a company in these circumstances would pretend to have changed their policy on their own (coincidentally), or they were just "clarifying" their policy due to "misunderstanding". It looks like Apple is actually admitting that they messed up, which is good.
"We're not going to spy on Russia or China ANY MORE! It's JUST NOT SAFE! SO you don't have to worry, Russia and China, because we're not spying on you!"
You mean Xenium? I googled Phillips Nexium and got a bunch of links for allergy tablets.
I have a flip phone* with T-Mobile, no data plan, and I spend maybe $50/YEAR. Because I hardly ever call anyone on it, and I don't text. I have an iPod Touch which I use on WiFi.
Also, my flip phone is tiny, and I can drop it without worrying about the screen cracking.
*Mind you, I'm not a big fan of my current phone, which I got for cheap at Toys-R-Us, and I'm reading this topic with interest. My original flip phone was from Samsung and it lasted forever.
I know very little about windmills so this may sound naive, but it seems to me that this might be the sort of thing you could put in your backyard: it's tall, but with a fairly small footprint. On the other hand, if it's vibrating all the time it will create sound waves: I wonder how loud it gets?
Could an American emigrate to India, and then come back to America on a H1-B?
And that's the problem: one buys an SUV or minivan for the few times a year they need one (or "just in case"), and then drive it around town the rest of the year when it's overkill. Maybe renting a minivan for vacation is the answer (though rentals can make people uncomfortable), or maybe there's some other solution we haven't figured out yet. (A Smart car that transforms into a minivan. Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch!
I assumed this was coming from the Internet Radio stations saying "Hey, how is it fair that we have to pay royalties and those guys don't?"
And if Walmart has the lowest prices in town (or maybe the ONLY prices in a small town), and if you're on a tight budget, you might not have a choice in where you shop, love it or hate it. It's like saying, "Wow, everyone must love the DMV, there's always a long line whenever I go!"
Potentially, yes. But open source may be running into the Bystander Effect (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bystander_effect):
"The bystander effect, or bystander apathy, is a social psychological phenomenon that refers to cases in which individuals do not offer any means of help to a victim when other people are present. The probability of help is inversely related to the number of bystanders."
Can you resell your power to your neighbors directly, and skip the company altogether?
Or maybe it's body armor that he picked up at the Army/Navy Surplus Store. It's been 30 years: if there are still "stormtroopers" they might have changed uniforms.
If Europe can regulate what the whole world sees on Google, why not China?
If they do go through with it, let's at least have a www.google.us without the censorship. (Probably a good idea anyway.)
The use of the words "Internet trolls" and "venom" leave a lot to the imagine. If we're talking about people who make death or rape threats, then I can see their point. But when I read "Internet troll" and "venom" I think of teasing, mockery, and people saying "you suck!" None of which should trigger a criminal investigation. I hope the law isn't as ambiguous as all that.
