Then who brought the snakes back in? I'm tired of these mother f'in snakes in my mother f'in universe!
Games are the only thing keeping me from moving. And (as pointed out earlier), NetFlix, but that's less of a problem. Everything else on my linux install is fine. I have used OpenOffice and now Libre nearly exclusively since 2003 (I say nearly because work still requires Office and file formats still don't perfectly interchange, but there's nothing I need out of Office or any other windows apps that aren't available to me in Linux, with the exception of high end gaming support).
You're right, the cards are all the same. They're just a piece of plastic with a magnetic strip that has a bunch of software flags. Considering that the software is the entire way any of this works, yes, changing some flags makes it different.
Only because we would have given the benefit of the doubt to the cop. There would have been an "internal investigation" and he would have been free after his 2 week vacation. . . I mean "administrative leave". Zimmerman stood the trial by jury and was found not guilty. Whether you think he was innocent or not doesn't matter. A jury that saw way more facts than any of us armchair lawyers found him not guilty.
There are more questions in the mind of he public than there would have been with the average copy, but there WERE more questions in court than there would have been with the average cop as well, which was OP's point.
I really don't think technology is causing us to reproduce at such absurd levels. In fact, refusal to use technology, such as numerous forms of birth control, is likely a bigger cause of reproducing at such levels. Now if you're factoring in lowered mortality rates due to technology, that's valid. In the past, people had 10 kids because there was no readily available birth control, kids and large families were necessary to work farms, and mortality rates were higher. Heck, diarrhea used to be a serious life risk.
Now, there are so many ways to avoid pregnancy (yes, I understand they occasionally fail), the kids (mostly) aren't working the family farm, and nearly all of them survive to adulthood. But we still have people that want to have 18 kids so they can get a reality show. I am all for funding any type of birth control a person wants to use. I'd rather my taxes pay for your IUD or surgery (if you want it, not shooting for forced sterilization here), than the kid that you didn't want.
Ok, bad day for me. . . . that's pretty obvious now that you point it out. . .
Shouldn't a warrant be required to even get the drives to attempt to decrypt them? Even TFS says he hasn't even been charged with a crime yet, so how do they even HAVE the drives? IANAL, but sounds like a pretty easy case for dismissal of evidence.
The Nexus 7 and Nexus 4 have almost the same resolution despite the screen size difference. The 4 has a higher density. The Nexus 4 also offers 2GB RAM vs 1GB for the Nexus 7, and 4 also includes wireless charging, a Barometer, and Ambient light sensor that are not included on the Nexus 7. 4 has also a Snapdraqon quad core 1.5Ghz processor, compared to the 7's Tegra 3 quad core 1.2 Ghz processor (I am not sure of direct benchmark comparison between these two chips). So, there are other differences, and the Nexus 4 is only $300 for 8Gb / $350 for 16Gb. Though with that said, the Nexus 7 is seen on sale periodically as low as $140 (refurbished).
We've not even been to the deepest depths of the ocean. . . .
Actually, we have.
No mod points, but well put!
I'm pro gun, but I do want to correct one common fact about that hammer and club statistic. Hammers and clubs kill far more people than *RIFLES*, including the oh so scary AR-15 and other "assault rifles". Interestingly enough, handguns are still the #1 murder weapon in the US, but they (mostly) don't have the scary high capacity 30 round magazines or selective fire features that everyone seems panicked about. I don't have a statistic off hand, but I believe a significant portion of these handgun murders are gang related. So lets ban gangs and crazy people, that makes more sense!
It's that they removed the old one. The new UI is good for a tablet. This would be the most powerful operating system by far if I could carry it around as a tablet and then dock it as a desktop PC with keyboard and mouse and go back to the traditional UI. Who wouldn't want that? But then they screwed that up by breaking the start menu and multitasking / non-maximized windows.
we might actually get the network back that we originally designed, the network that is full of possibilities, open protocols, and universal access to all of humanities collective knowledge and experience.
And porn! The internet is for porn.
They're already working that exploit. Check out this power strip with wifi, bluetooth, ethernet, and 3G modem built in.
I use iGoogle ON my phone! It's my default home page in my Android browser. I don't want to maintain a separate "app".
