IMHO it is users that are using the software so they should have a fair amount input for at user interface part of the software. Some managers are essentially stupid so I would let these managers near any of the development team. The worst is let some of "capital people" or "financial investors" try their hand in "assisting" in development, most of these "financial people" couldn't tell idea between their ass and a hole in the wall.
a high end laptop should have all of these features in the poll and maybe including upgradeable components.
What about the Whigs, Green, Libertarian, Peace & Freedom, Bull Moose you insensitive clods.
Being sliced, diced or Julienne by an lightsaber (the villain version is has red blade).
Coffee or other drink meets keyboard, laptop, etc will mean that a high likelihood of damaged or dead devices due to liquid immersion. I think the insurance for Apple Store increase exponentially due risk of damage due to liquids.
Since most movies are fiction so are laws of physics and many other things go out of the door also. I watch Star Wars or Star Trek purely for entertainment since we haven't gone beyond light speed yet or teleported anything larger than a couple of atoms. I watch movies for their entertainment value and not to score them in Mythbusters in categories of "Busted", "Plausible" or "Confirmed". As for documentaries or docudramas I do expect some accuracy in what they show (more in documentaries less in docudramas) so I do cringe when I see inaccuracies there.
I managed a development data center we have the system administrators of each group name their own servers (as long they don't exist already) and most common method I remember was what characters or objects they where reading or seeing on TV or movie at that time. At that time Star Trek, the next generation was out we had Picard, Number One, Wolf, etc.,
Your missing tequila. This sound like my Spanish vocabulary....
I assume no one really checked their sources before they printed this (what a dated word "printed") or out on the net. A manual typewriter is still good if the power goes out and you need to make a standardized letter for some reason. We nearly needed to use one this year because our accounting software developer made a mistake in creating 1099 forms this year. Yes, Royal and Olivetti still manufactures manual typewriters so this story is incorrect. There are still are several manufactures of electric typewriters that double as printer for computers .
or did Ground Hog Day and April Fools get combined now and I'm experiencing April 1 again and again.
Since they have essentially removed most reference of Mao Zedong from their history books now they are going after people attempt to change history. Even though I'm Chinese, but the communist Chinese always make me laugh with with their strange and bewildering policies with their people but their enforcement of certain laws against their are not funny.
However, with this article on PLOS and reading it now it to go beyond mice and go to study on other animals to check so this idea will work eventually on humans. My assumption it will take 3 years before human testing will occur and I will be the first be in line to do the test. It will be another 3 years before it may become available to general public.
For some people, this is only way for them to get touch in any way.
Gee if my dad's 1969 Pontiac Catalina worked as well & without the pollution like these nuclear power plants of the same era, it would still be here.
I think they designed this facility to hold up in a major earthquake but they didn't think about the tsunami and at that time they didn't think about the tsunami that happened afterward. Remember that the facility was shutdown properly after the earthquake and was on generator power to pump water to cool down the reactor until the tsunami washed away the generators into the sea so it was only on 8 hour battery power and now we are at this stage. This is one of lessons that we all should learn about keeping systems pass their life and understanding to design systems for multiple contingencies including any worst case scenarios. However like so many for profit companies, safety is not a priority as BP oil spill has shown us. We need to have proper incentives for companies to build safe and punish them (not the company but the management personnel) if they ignore safety. We should have any system of this type to have continually updated with the most current safety standard and best operating procedures.
As for these nuclear power facilities, it should be moved inland to prevent swamping by the sea or other possible natural disasters.
It would be difficult to get VOR/DME or even ADF over the ocean. LORAN was turned off on August 2010 so limited but the last global terrestrial radio navigation system shutdown . eLORAN is active in UK but that is limited to that area now. We need another method of global terrestrial radio navigation system to augment GNSS if there was some problem with satellites due to solar activity or other issues.
