If you have that much money, you are not doing your own wiring. There are audiophile "contractors" who will come in and install the most expensive setup possible. Since most expensive is better, right? These are the things install to justify the cost.
Yay. The right to be as big an ass as you want before you turn 18, because there's no repercussion.
Remember double the speed, quadruple the force.
That works if you are bouncing off a brick wall, not smashing a small object into a larger one. Force is change in momentum with respect to time, not momentum squared.
It was a user driven site. The users provided much of the value. The users were pissed off. The users struck back. Now the business is scared. What's the problem?
How is there value if the owners of the site aren't making any money? If I had someone who came into my store every day and did nothing but talk with his buddies without buying anything, then I sure as hell would kick him out to the curb. That's what's happening, and everyone is surprised? Web site lets people run amok for years, then decides to rebuild into something that makes money for the VC's. Big deal. Go find another playground to loiter around in.
Everyone has a right to speak and think whatever they want. You don't like what someone has to say... then use your right to speak to say so and use your right to think to judge them. But you don't censor them.
No one can censor your thoughts, but free to say whatever you want? I don't think I have to use the "fire in a crowded theater" analogy. You already know that it's not true, or possible, or even reasonable. You can say what you like, I guess, on the "internet," but that doesn't mean you can say whatever you want on someone else's site. The owner of the site can put whatever restrictions they want, by our definition of ownership in this case. The concept that you can say whatever you want, whenever you want, wherever you want speaks of simple ignorance of the norms of society.
I'm sure many others will point this out, but don't call it a jet pack if it's not a jet pack! I guess I'll call my Mini Copper a flying car since I can drive it on the high way too.
How could "ugly hack" exist in perl code. Every single line ever written is an elegant beautiful hack, by design.
Sounds like the standard make $10m in revenue, pay $1m in fines, make $9m in profit. And no one actually goes to jail.
Of course they can ignore it. Google is a vendor providing a part to the phone manufacturers, just like the company that makes the plastic case. Consumers buy their phone from the manufacturer or the service provider, so they are responsible for the customer's experience, not Google.
This is not an expensive computer. Phones are relatively inexpensive, and people just end up buying a new one every year or two anyway if they want the latest doodads. If people are still using the old phone with old versions of Android software, then they must be happy with it. Believe it or not a lot of people really do use their phone just for making phone calls.
It's called voice to text. No thumbs required.
I suppose there is some justice in the Prenda principals* living this trainwreck for years, as a sort of additional punishment before their inevitable jail sentences even start.
Who's going to jail? The lawyers? They are just hired help. The executives of Prenda? They are exempt since they hide behind the "corporation." The venture capitalists who are funding the whole thing? No, they are so above the law that it's not even funny. Maybe a few people will be disbarred. That's about it.
is he wrong in saying that only having researching gender issues and only having researchers of only one gender may skew the research? what if this were two male researchers and a female rejected it for "ideologically biased assumptions"?
I don't know. We should go back to and recheck the majority of all research published, since it fits that description.
I'm sure if a paper with the opposite conclusion authored only by men was submitted for review, women (both reviewers and others) would be decrying that fact,
Please cite the article about this happening? Or is this just your prosecution fantasy as a middle classed white male?
They started as a bookseller, then moved slowly into other merchandise
They started as a method to sell and distribute goods on the internet. Books were only their choice for a physical manifestation of the method. I guess you are too young to remember what people were speculating on back in the "boom."
Hacking is relatively benign compared to the damage a prosecutor with an agenda can do. The latest round of these travesties is now going on in Wisconsin http://www.wsj.com/articles/ri... , It seems we get these popping up about once a year lately and it's been accelerating.
Nice way to use a real issue to push you political agenda. Wall Street Journal, the new Fox News for the criminally insane.
