There was a time when BB didn't fit in pockets either, they were worn in little holders attached to your belt. Back to the future, man.
And BB were always fat and square before the Bold models got slimmer. This is like the true successor to the click wheel line.
Complaints of "no one is innovating anymore" followed closely by "look at BB, stupids, phones HAVE to be one handed and pocketable! No innovation allowed!"
Me? I kind of like it. I use two hands anyway so why not make a true two handed device?
The Hobby Lobby case was about a corporation demanding religious freedom to reject paying for the medical care of their employees based on the religious view of the company owners.
It's a terrible decision, as it means that somehow not only are corporations 'persons', but they have the religious freedom to impose their will on their employees.
The Hobby Lobby case is/was about individual owners of a company not losing their rights just because they formed a corporation for tax or liability purposes. It treats these individuals just like they were still a sole proprietorship or partnership. Simply put, the decision says that if you form a business, you do not give up any rights regardless of the form of that business.
I have never heard of this case, but you've just described exactly the opposite of 300+ years of corporations. You DO trade in rights as an individual when you form a corporation and you gain tons of rights too - such as protection from personal asset seizure. The whole point of a corporation is that the corporation is separate and distinct from your personal assets and it is NOT a partnership or sole proprietorship that can have assets seized..
The Hobby Lobby case did not bestow religious freedoms on corporations. It did, however, keep the owners of those corporations, if fewer than five individuals from losing their religious freedoms.
Those are the same thing, so it does appears to have bestowed religious freedom on corporations if their owners want it. Again, if you want to own a corporation you ave to give something up in return. Size of the corporation is not relevant.
Is this in appeal somewhere? Because a single judge just fundamentally changed the way the western world functions.
sure they could have baked some security in, but that line item got cut in the budget. They'll just glue some encryption on later, it's easy to do.
No it wouldn't. Most mid range laptops use standard 18650 Li-ion cells in a row. You could easily rewire a 6 cell battery to be 3 for the laptop, 3 for something else and it would be pretty much impossible to tell without a tear down. It would still charge and run normally, but for half the time. Unless the TSA agent was an electronics whiz with access to the Dell's schematics they won't be able to see anything wrong.
It's theater folks, thanks for playing the game
Postal mail - the original pirate transport mechanism!
they need to be shut down, stat!
Apparently you also have a nation of people who don't understand how the power system works, but can read about it on the internet.
You should let Alcoa know. Pretty embarrassing having the the name of one of their corporate directors wrong.
You sound like a case study in why the law was needed. You have no idea who is on your marketing list, no idea where they are in the world, or whether they even want your emails, or how they got on your lists in the first place. Bad law for you, great law for anyone you happen to be spamming. Be prepared for a flood of unsubscribe requests!
If you want to do business in countries that have laws like that, yes, of course. Why is that so hard for Americans to understand?
The definition of CEM is so broad, that just about anything from a vendor will be commercial. Even if there is no expectation of profit, simply inviting someone to do something is "commercial" and requires two stage opt-in.
It's overly broad to prevent weaseling around it, but it will take a few court cases to actually define it better.
Microsoft has no good, centralized, newsletter or list management system. So they are stuck with a blanket ban/switch to rss for now.
Uhm, we're pretty close to that already. About 700 miles give or take. Tesla can do 250 easy, some are pushing 300. So a 1 hr full charge stop (you do have to eat, right?) plus another 30 minute stop (pee break) to 50% charge would get you there. Next year, in the lighter Model X a single 1hr stop might do it.
You'll need a new excuse soon. I suggest Miami to Seattle. People are *constantly* driving that route, so if an electric can't do it, it will never be a success.
....there are coming innovations in materials and geometries for anodes and cathodes that in the next 5 years are going to make batteries staggeringly better not only in storage, but also in their ability to be recharged.
That was ten years ago. Still waiting. Ye old 18650 are everywhere and don't seem to be going anywhere, anytime soon. Not even in the next 5 years.
...a true statement in any year.
