If you think you can cram the same UI for a 5 inch touch-screen and a 25 inch desktop computer, I'm afraid it just means you haven't much of a clue about UI in general.
Linux Torvalds? Really? On Slashdot? In 2014?
ChromeOS is their OS on a hardware thay approved beforehand. Nothing to do with a random Linux machine out there.
AGW that old saw wielded by people that are looking for funding or power or both. Sadly science gets lost with this type of hysteria and our planet's history is cherry picked depending which side of the religious argument you inhabit. (MCO anyone, or LIA)?
If everyone stopped farting tomorrow and we cut our emissions by 50% we'd barely move the needle based on peer reviewed climate models (all of them). There would be a massive world wide depression and you could expect food shortages but you wouldn't change the climate much. So instead of screaming about weapons of mass destruction, perhaps folks should start looking at the cost of mitigating potential issues created by a warmer earth. The Dutch have done a great job with dealing with a rising sea over the last 2500 years.
Looking at solutions that work instead of creating bigger problems would be a healthy start to a constructive debate. It would also be a nice change from the demagoguery.
multiple 4k streams?
and have 2 rate increases on internet services in the same year with no additional speed increase.
Americans get uppity about mistresses as it means the politician is compromised in some way. The politician could be blackmailed over it. The politician is not trustworthy. It implies that they are corruptible and have lied and makes us wonder what else they have lied about.
In our military, extra martial affairs are illegal for these very reasons.
Blend in with the local populace.
Sailors can have beards at sea.
If you really are a fan of the Hobbit (the book) I strongly urge you *not* to see the 2nd movie, and if you did, you're most certainly not going to see the third - but that time it'll not be on my advice, you'll get to that conclusion all by yourself.
What a nightmare this movie was...
I'd mod this Funny if I had points, but I don't, so I'll just say thanks for the laugh.
Anyone check the IDS?
Applicant has a duty to disclose (See MPEP 2001) any and all prior art that they are aware of at the time of filing.
Per MPEP 2001.01
(c) Individuals associated with the filing or prosecution of a patent application within the meaning of this section are:
(1) Each inventor named in the application;
(2) Each attorney or agent who prepares or prosecutes the application; and
(3) Every other person who is substantively involved in the preparation or prosecution of the application and who is associated with the inventor, with the assignee or with anyone to whom there is an obligation to assign the application.
Individuals having a duty of disclosure are limited to those who are “substantively involved in the preparation or prosecution of the application.” This is intended to make clear that the duty does not extend to typists, clerks, and similar personnel who assist with an application.
'Cause, uh, it's a sports car designed for racing?
But it's being sold through normal retail channels as a street-legal road car. As such, drivers have a right to expect that it will meet the basic safety standards that you'd see in other cars.
What happened to using your brains in order to think about what you're buying?
Some people aren't really familiar with slip angles or trail braking either and the role of weight transfer in terms of taking a corner. Most people on this discussion probably have zero HPDE experience let alone seat time at a local autox/rallyx.
So you ask me to name one, and yet you've already come up with 3. So you're asking me for a forth. To what point when you've already come up with 3. You've already accespted that the category of things that are best done by government exists. You're just wanting to quibble about which items belong in the set.
Indeed, there are things that I think are best done by the government. They probably represent less than 10% of the actual government spending hence the ire at the 90% of the budget which could be drastically reduced.
And "just fine" isn't good enough. "As good or better than the government" is the bar.
Roads is an obvious one. Sure, there is the odd private road in most countries, but that's cherry picking the profitable routes. Private enterprise never provides a comprehensive road system like a government.
2/3rd of the roads in sweden are private. That's not what I call the "odd private road" by any measure. That's mostly small rural roads, not the most profitable kind where you can put a toll. And it works fine. I really don't see the need for the government here.
Welfare is another.
In many countries, public healthcare is only providing the absolute minimum, and things work fine. Sure, you can carpet-bomb the field and make everything public, but that leads to a waste of resource, and most countries cannot afford it - they get indebted more and more and while every country is in this situation everybody agrees that it is not sustainable.
Schools is another. Again, a few private schools doesn't cut it - that's cherry picking the offspring of the richest few. Private enterprise doesn't ever provide a comprehensive education system.
There are many more.
in the Netherlands, 2/3rd of schools are run independently. Granted, they are mostly government funded, but the money comes from somewhere anyways. Most revenue from the government coming from VAT, everyone pays for it, including the poor. The point is that the government doesn't need to handle the education, subsiding it (partially) is more than enough.
The global point is that in general, a field taken over by the government removes incentive by removing competition, and ends up costing much more for everyone. In general, except for the fields I cited, public money well spent is public money that A) the government has and B) that will significantly improve the field it is spent into. More often than not, none of these conditions are met, so the government shouldn't do them.
And if horses were cows, they'd not be very good milkers.
It's a government's job to provide many things that citizens need, but that wouldn't be done well by private enterprise. Including those things that are not profitable.
Name one and I'll find a country in which it works just fine by private enterprises, save police, military and maybe fire fighting but I can't see why it wouldn't work.
