Tesla does not want to the pay the dealer fees just to sell cars, since the fees benefit their competitors.
In that case, this is one good reason to use Obj-C instead of Swift: to support older iOS devices that cannot upgrade to iOS 7. I have an iPad 1 that is stuck at iOS 5.1. If Apple had a good trade-in program, I would use it.
Are you sure about that? My understanding is that new/updated apps must be "optimized" for iOS 7, but they can still run on older versions.
I'm also about to learn iOS programming. If I write an app in Swift, what is the oldest version of iOS that it will run on?
Maybe I missed the part of the article where the car explodes if you are late.
Grave bodily injury? If the car doesn't start?
Yes, you did miss something:
One woman in Nevada said her car was shut down while she was driving on the freeway.
no one should have to sell their product through a middleman.
Tell that to Section 2 of the 21st Amendment.
I would rather have that, than to have my son fingerprinted.
There already is a server that works, without using biometrics: https://www.mylunchmoney.com./ My kids' schools use it, and we've never had any problems.
It takes me 20 minutes to fall asleep normally, even when I haven't had any caffeine. Not only that, but I would need to take my contact lenses out first.
The business model exists as a business expense and therefore exists to reduce the companies tax liability.
That is the dumbest thing I've heard all year.
I'm a Qualcomm employee working on the Linux kernel. Qualcomm has a very thorough vetting process for publishing open source code. I would have to see the file in question to be sure, but it appears that someone in Qualcomm messed up and allowed that C file to be published. It probably should have had the Proprietary line deleted, although I have a suspicion that the file was copied from some actual proprietary code and should never have been submitted.
Just FYI, the inventory of Texas cows is generally shrinking year over year.
That is interesting given that my brother and my cousin - both big into gaming - use PC-style controls with their Xbox because they feel it gives them an edge over users of the Xbox controller.
This doesn't make any sense. There are no PC-style controllers that work on an Xbox. You can plug in a keyboard and a mouse, but they work very poorly on an Xbox. Now, there are third-party controllers that have some enhancements (extra buttons in different locations, etc). But I would not call them "PC-style" controllers.
It's Adams', not Adams's. How could you not know that?
rent-a-limo-and-go-clubbing night, weekends in Tahoe, Burning Man, in-office happy hour
I'm 44 now, and I have never wanted to go to Burning man. A weekend in Tahoe might be okay. In-office happy hours, however, are just a gathering with your co-workers for about an hour in a conference room with free food and beer. Almost all of the companies I've worked for (of all sizes) have people of all ages, and these happy hours were a nice, quick break. I wouldn't fear them.
I honestly think you won't have a problem fitting in. Being the only person to show up early in the morning without a hangover might be to your advantage, anyway.
