It's true. Most people who have been strapped to the electric chair never made another spelling mistake in their lives.
When an Apple device connects to a wifi network, it checks http://www.apple.com/library/test/success.html to see if the network is connected to the Internet. Unfortunately, some bozo deleted that file...
No, but it means that it cost money to record. Nothing is recorded for free.
You don't understand the point of self-driving cars? Really? These will revolutionize travel if they become affordable. As for saying they're too expensive, everything is too expensive for most people when it's new; technology prices have a way of coming down over time, you see.
Or, gawd forbid.. we could teach programmers how to use threading?
Who said it was an either/or proposition? People should learn to use parallel processors efficiently, but that doesn't mean that I'm going to turn down a compiler that can do a bit of it too. Otherwise, why bother having optimising compilers at all; clearly the programmer should have just programmed more efficiently!
"insecure physical locks will do little to keep the bad guys out"
I think this is unfair. The lock on my front door has a 100% record of keeping bad guys out. That's because it's intended to deter casual thieves, not secret agents. Knowing what your security is protecting against and choosing the right level is important. And I could buy the best lock in the world and someone could just smash a window...
...who also happens to Space Transport and Recovery (STAR) Systems...
I think you accidentally a word.
I still don't really understand the advantage of the Pi over, say, a cheap second-hand laptop.
It's cheap, but everyone already has a computer that's many times more powerful. It's low-power, but not more much more so than a phone / tablet. And it's not portable because it doesn't have a battery.
Why should anyone actually buy one? The only use I can really think for it is as a very low power server, but if I wanted such a thing I think I would buy a new laptop and use the old one as the server.
I don't think I understand. What would you like this putative browser to do when it sees an HTML5 document? Simply refuse to render it? Considering it's the dominant standard now, you'll just be shutting yourself from more and more of the web.
Tell that to those in Gitmo. Oh wait, they're Muslims, so not real people right? A bit like those Vietnamese in My Lai.
Posting as AC because I'll probably get modded as "-1, Troll", despite calling an entire country "fucked-up" because of an email monitoring system getting "+2, Funny". Because emails are more serious than massacres and torture, right?
