Was that so hard?
If you can't do.. teach.. if you can't teach... run for office.
If you can't do . . . teach.
If you can't teach . . . administrate.
If you can't administrate . . . run for office.
FFS, I've always hated this shit. Be reasonable:
If you can do . . . teach.
If you can't teach . . . do.
It's default that most phones save messages, and because it's convenient for a large majority of users. Due to this, phones record innumerable amounts of texts; smartphones especially.
Change how the phone works, and you change the expectation of content delivery, archival, and investigation.
The 2 picosecond resolution is obviously the limitation here; just like that of a camera with a 240p resolution, or a low Frames Per Second. The faster a camera like this is able to collect reflected data, the better the overall quality.
Just think of the implications for photography and cinematography! Michael Bay would have a field day with this shit. And then someone with talent could actually make a good movie, too, but you know, whatever...
The future looks rather interesting, albeit vague, with this tech. And it's just around the corner.
Unfortunately, this comment will likely be buried, but I would LOVE to be a part of this.
I'm currently homeless (in LA) and I'm always trying to find decent hotspots that are free, or at the very least require very little monetary investment. If I were walking around as a mobile hotspot, I would never have to worry about it. To top it off, I could get paid by others to do the very same thing!
I understand that there is some concern as to whether or not this is some form of slavery or taking advantage of those who are in a not-so-ideal situation. To me, it sounds like an innovative capitalistic idea. Nothing wrong with that, right? There are a lot of homeless people in this country, why not incorporate their mobility (yet relative stationary position) with something desired by those with a bit more capital?
I've witnessed and conversed with a smorgasbord of varied homeless persons, and many are simply just not in a good position; be it the consequences of an ill-conceived action, or a matter of circumstance. Yes, there are those who prefer to be homeless (to a degree, I fit that category, there's quite a bit of freedom in it, and I'm doing something of an experiment on myself...going well so far, considering), some whose brains are fried due to excessive drug use, or are mentally unfit for integration into current society...those may or may not be fit for this program, but it evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
I see that the best way to determine who is most likely to create a synergistic profit margin is via interview. Most people I've talked to who are not homeless are flabbergasted at the fact that I'm without abode, and are generally surprised at my ability to articulate my words. Yet, here I am. I have no intention of imbibing drugs or excessive amounts of alcohol (social drinker), so I feel that I would be a perfect candidate for this program. I'm certain there are plenty of others out there who would not abuse the extra finances garnered from this program.
I can actually see a future in such a methodology. However, instead of utilizing only the homeless, use anyone willing to take on the task. Just like those advertisements that people wrap on their car, I'm sure people would take advantage of getting paid to provide internet to nearby patrons.
It's still pretty fucking stupid to charge them in the first place.
At least it's a step in the right direction, albeit a small one...
What I had in mind was something like a crossover over of 2 different games:
* Ricochet - Breakout style game play with a better aesthetic
* Curve Ball - 3D-styled Pong.
Those two ideas combined with the idea of destroying a building would be kind of cool. Now exactly sure how it would play out, but I'll leave that to the Engineers.
...all of Verizon's current smartphone plans have data caps
If you've got an Unlimited Data plan (as I have), this won't be an issue. The throttling of your service will be, however.
