These are the same kind of idiots that back police for killing a kid in the street for being black, but has no issues when a bunch of mental right wing nut jobs take over gov. buildings in a terrorists action, they will back it.
At this point power consumption matters a heck of a lot more for ubiquity than pure performance gains.
I'm sure the fire-breathing dragster edition of current silicon technology (with a pin count to match) will continue to exist at an upscale price for those willing to pay for it.
That uncomfortable rush in your stomach? It's from clinging to yesterday.
Hey, we can't all be Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Larry Ellison or John McAfee!
You simply need to pick a different route. Epubee and FBReader do the job for me. Even better, I actually have an unencrypted copy of the epub, just in case there is some sort of "licensing" issue.
Sorry, let me clarify.
During those 8 weeks or so it is a full time job. And honestly, some of the laws and especially the budget are so complex that it isn't something you just whip out the pen and start writing. Maybe full-time research staff, but honestly that is the job of legislators.
And I personally believe that they should spend as much time reviewing old laws for relevance, modification and possible repeal as they do making new ones.
Translation; You bought an Apple. You're going to pay and pay and pay, and then pay again. Welcome to our Hotel California ecosystem, you stupid hipster! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
All Androids? Really? Care to cite evidence? Or are you just making shit up
Yeah, you're being a dick.
How is this behavior any different than Microsoft's "it's not done 'til Lotus won't run" back in the day?
You just described my senior management.
I don't know. This was the way things were set up back when it all started, a couple hundred years ago. The intent was that government was small enough to not be a full time job.
The problem is that belief has become a religion. We are no longer in the 1700s and the complexities of governing such a large and varied State have greatly evolved. It really isn't a part time job anymore, but not enough people are willing to admit that.
The point is that being a State House Representative is not a full time job. Whether it should be or not is a different question, but in the U.S. the position of State Legislator is mostly considered part-time.
The far southeast of the state is basically Boston exurbs, and there's a bunch of engineer types who live there and commute in to the Boston area. Although the rest of New Hampshire barely considers those people to be part of the state.
