One exception I have to note (since Runaway1956 is citing me) is that gay marriage *is* the only thing that won't cost anything and is a real social benefit. THIS is something positive.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
They are very identical in one VERY IMPORTANT way: They'll both push their agenda of the day, but in the end, they'll keep ignoring the real problems and protecting their benefactors (which is a part of the real problem) along with distributing the money to friends, family and allies.
And there's nothing you can do about it.
In that way, they are identical. Now, their agenda du jour... in the end is pretty much irrelevant. Your so called health insurance, we have it in France since about 65 years now. It's 2B€ in debt every fucking year. And there is only 60 millions of us. Because of it, more and more people are poor because it consumes so much wealth. Trade healthcare vs poverty. This is what it will become. The government is inefficient to a point where this will become the number one money gobbler in the US. Just give it time. The system doesn't even have enough money anymore over here to provide decent reimbursement. We have to take extra insurance if we don't want to pay for everything except for aspirin.
And don't tell me I don't know what I'm talking about because I'm French. We have the very exact same bunch over here. I'd like to think ours are worse, but that's just because I'm French and I (obviously) am the center of the world.
Never do. Trust me. Don't. Ever.
The real question being: did the AI enjoy it as much as a human?
A pic^H^H^H link or it didn't happen.
My wife's MacBook Air came with no crapware preinstalled. My Ubuntu Dell XPS 13 neither.
I have no idea what you're talking about.
Why prevent your spouse to have fun? Share the love !
About the nefarious code, this can be said of any device in your home. What if your refrigerator has a WiFi chipset and silently tries to break in every reachable network ?
But to prevent the TV from doing anything it is advertised to do, deactivating the network should be enough.
It is perfectly safe if you don't plug it in your Wifi or your rj45 wire. That's how my HDTV is configured today. I envision my TV as a dumb screen, and it's been working so far.
Are you implying that northern Europe is a disaster? You should visit Greece and Sweden, you'll see a great difference.
My wife is a teacher and she uses an "interactive board" and it really helps. She can prepare stuff in advance (do that with a chalkboard) move stuff around the board (do that with a chalkboard) show Wikipedia, youtube, anything in just an alt-tab (do that with a chalkboard). When she brings a student to the board do do something, she can them replay it (...)
Well, you get the point. An interactive board is much more than a chalkboard on steroids.
Ok, but both work with an exchange server, right?
The iPhone already have nice native apps that have the additional advantage of being build-in.
the default client for iPhone (mail, contacts, calendar) has supported the exchange protocol for many years now. This is all build-in. Ironically, SMTP is just for hotmail (which didn't support anything else as of last year)
Android is running Linux, just like your latest Ubuntu release. You know Linux is the kernel, right?
