I'm going to withhold judgement on this, as I think it looks nice. As long as the parts are all standard and easily replaceable, the shape of the case doesn't make much difference.
The new IOS 7 UI looks an awful lot like another mobile UI I've seen without the 3d effect. We better check to see if flat images are patented or part of brand distinction.
That is a TERRIBLE correlation. It might be significant from a purely statistical argument, but the correlation is so weak that it would be difficult to eliminate other factors.
I'm not sure what a "terrible" correlation is in your book, but to me it's all about the numbers. Correlations of this nature tell you nothing about an individual, but about a population. That's why women have lower car insurance than men, even though a specific woman might be much riskier than a specific man. It is only at after looking at past data can we tell which individuals are more costly.
Even if the correlation was 95% there are still outliers. You still DON'T want to use it to judge a person's IQ. it just becomes an even better metric for populations. But again, it should not be used on an individual level.
A google would have told you http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_North_Korean_missile_tests 6 in the last 20 years. Their range is "likely" able to hit hawaii, but not mainland US if we go by their missile launch records. Whether they have nukes small enough to fit into a missile warhead is another question we don't know.
Except that it never approaches zero. I imagine it approaches a non-zero amount. Unless you think that usage will always be higher than production. I imagine that when extraction costs rise due to resource scarcity that the earth will be creating oil at the same rate or above the rate at which we extract and use it.
Look here for the timeline: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smartphone_wars
This list just shows who started what:
Nokia sues apple, apple counters, and nokia counters, etc.
Apple sues HTC, counters, etc
(HTC gives royalties to microsoft... WTF?)
S3 sues Apple
Oracle sues google, oracle fails!
Microsoft sues Motorolla, countered etc.
Motorolla sues Apple, countered etc.
Microsoft sues Barnes and Nobles
Apple sues Samsung, countered
Microsoft grabs more royalties from those without patent arsenal (le sigh)
And that is a little rundown of where we are at.
Honestly, DRM is the problem. Let's say that we have no DRM, but we still have different standards. Let's say we're talking about pictures, instead of books. Well, you have PNG, JPG, GIF.... Hrmm it appears it's pretty trivial to have one player that can handle all the formats when you don't have the DRM restrictions. The formats would need to differentiate themselves in functionality, or the best would win. The main differentiation right now is the DRM schemes.
That depends completely on your individual circumstance. Here are the costs of moving:
1) Getting out of current rent, selling house, etc. - This is the largest cost variable. If you own a home, it is worth looking into having someone manage renting it for you until prices come up further.
2) Travel costs - Gas to move with car, renting a moving truck if you have enough assets to make it worth it. Many times it's more efficient to just garage sell your stuff and buy new stuff off of craigslist at your new location. If you have a family, you might want to fly them out separately.
3) Settling in cost - First month + deposit is often required when renting a new place. Even some companies that don't provide relocation packages will consider helping you out with this. If you are single people will often put you up for a bit while you look for a place.
4) Savings for current obligations - Keep enough to pay at least another month of your current debts so you don't fall behind if the first paycheck takes a bit. If you have lots of student loans, you can ask them if you can defer a few months while you move. That might make moving easier.
First of all, that site is horrible. He weeds out people for all the wrong reasons, unless he is hiring PR people. Secondly, the linked article isn't even about the lack of relocation packages. You really don't need a relocation package to move cross-country, especially if you will be making more money.
Ask for a raise at work, and continue your open source contributions on the weekend?
There are a few ways to get more pay:
1) Increase skill-set, ability and move to a job that pays more. (spend weekends training and researching what jobs pay more)
2) Side job - (if it doesn't conflict with your current work contract)
a) Use an agent to find you a job working remote or weekends, they exist
b) create own application (may or may not payoff)
3) Talk to management about overtime opportunities. Usually doesn't hurt to see what their policies are. If you are salaried they will often look down on this, but they might be willing to give a bonus for an extra project being done in overtime. You can also talk about your career path.
If you do this, make sure you order now, as they are on 6 week backorder.
Having been a successful programmer for 35 years, I would discount the value of touch typing. It has been my experience that thinking is far more important than typing skills.
Your logic makes no sense. Learning to type faster is in no way going to diminish his ability to think.
Your logic makes no sense. Discounting the value of something in no way means that it would diminish the ability of another.
This site notes that there is no link, but points out the WHO lists it as a "Possible carcinogen". Lets take a look at what else the WHO lists as "Possible carcinogens":
Coffee, dry cleaning, exhaust/gas, pickled vegatables, nickle... to name a few

I read this "for her PhD" instead of "of her PhD". I was really confused how that works.
