No but you don't issue him a warning either... simply because there are much more potentially serious consequences to the action.
Are the only damages (or potential damages) the $0.05 in electricity?
What if that particular circuit was being used for other things, like running a pump to deal with some flooding, and plugging in the car was enough to blow the braker?
There really aren't.
If the person has a living will, you follow that.
If the person does not, and there is a living relative with PoA, that person can make the decision.
If there's no will and no person with PoA, then you provide medical care as we do today.
I can see his point of view.
I'm for assisted suicide, but I'd like to think if I didn't like the idea for myself or my family, I wouldn't try to prevent you from doing it. Blocking other people from having this option is, indirectly, putting people in these 'torturous' positions.
I can't see how it won't. You'll grind for rep and some sort of currency (valor points or what have you) to get better gear to get into end game raids, to farm gear.
It's lost it's appeal for me and I really doubt I'll be back.
Turn it off unless you're watching it. You'll save electricity and your TV will last longer.
So they get an LCD. My TV is the plasma.
I picked up a Pebble and it does most of what I was hoping it will do, and potentially will do it all with some firmware (or other) updates.
First, I'm on call a lot, generally via email. So having a watch on my wrist vibrate a little as opposed to a phone in my pocket buzz or make a sound is more convenient, and easier to notice (most of the time). It's nice that I can be in a meeting, at a movie, at the doctor's office, have my phone on silent or vibrate, and not worry about it bother other people. Since my response time for on call is usually an hour, a quick glance at my watch is all that is required at the moment the email comes in, at which point I can wrap up the business at hand, or if it's ongoing, I can excuse myself when it's appropriate.
The only thing I wish, was that there was an option to continue vibrating (in some pattern) until I acknowledge the alert. This way, when I'm on call overnight, I can be notified of an email without the sound having to wake my as well as me.
Next, I run. The watch lets me interface with Runkeeper by giving me my current pace, distance and time with a quick glance at my watch, it also lets me control the music on my phone if I happen to be listening to music while running. If I have Runkeeper reading out my pace and other info occasionally, I find it distracting, and I'd rather know those things when I want to, rather that any specific interval. Using my watch is much better than trying to do those things on my phone while running, especially since for security purposes, I need to have my phone lock when not being used.
We have some new laws regarding personal communication devices and driving. Now, I don't text or play with my phone while driving, but having the text show up on my watch can, at a glance, let me know if it's something I want to deal with relatively soon, or if it's something that can wait until it's convenient. I won't get a ticket for glancing at my watch, but I could for trying to view the same message on my phone.
So, yes, I find my watch useful for my set of circumstances.
Because the Troll is missing the entire point of the story.
If Intel, Nvidia and AMD start releasing they're top tier drivers for Linux, it makes Linux as a desktop more viable for more people. That's what Torvalds is saying.
Not everyone is going to go and replace their Windows desktop with a Linux right away, but when it's time to buy their next PC, and they can get one for $100 cheaper (same specs) that will play their games, run their office suite, etc. That's where Linux can take a bigger bite out of the home desktop market.
For myself, probably twice a year. An annual physical and it seems like about once a year for something else.
If you count the wife and kids, it's probably more like 10-15. Kids have some pretty serious medical issues so we're regularly seeing various specialists.
Remote X11 never really worked properly anyway; It doesn't survive interruptions, and it's basically unusable over high-latency connections (you end up needing to use things like VNC). Network transparency is a nice feature, but X11 embedded it into the wrong layer, and it doesn't really work very well today anyway. Building a VNC server (or maybe something more rich based on streaming video) should be a lot easier under Wayland than it ever was under X11.
"Will wayland offer benefits as decreased power usage or better acceleration, compared to using X11?".
Based on playing around with Weston for a weekend, I think it'll get there sooner than you might think. Wayland's developers are familiar with Xorg, so they're not wasting a lot of time with NIH-syndrome rewrites of stuff that works (for instance, Weston uses the same low-level video drivers as Xorg, and xwayland is just a special build of Xorg). The protocol is specifically designed to take "frames" into account (so, no more tearing, ever), so even if it's somewhat slower (which I don't expect), it'll *feel* more responsive.
Flash in Chromium/X11 under xwayland already renders video more smoothly on my machine than it does on native Xorg (well, when rendering doesn't hang or crash xwayland). If you cut out some of the middlemen, I expect it'll only get better.
All GSM-network North American iPhones support 3G AWS so they will all work with T-Mobile. I'm not sure this is true for CDMA iPhones for Sprint and Verizon, but AT&T, Bell, Rogers, SaskTel, and Telus iPhones support 3G AWS so, if unlocked, will work fine. Of course, Apple also sells this phone unlocked and contract-free in both Canada and the US.
Apple was slow to support AWS 3G ("4G") but they do now, so the problem no longer exists unless you are using an older iPhone.
