Is he also running LORD 2? I was pretty amazing, and it's the kind of game that could scale pretty well to today's systems.
I thought this was about taxes, since Ireland had that loophole for tech companies. I'm not sure what the deal is with north american users tho..
what do you mean by "one of those"? people? because that's what they are, they're all people. I don't see the difference in this context.
Don't forget that "feature" they added some months ago where the browser arbitrarily disables add-ons that weren't approved by the vendor, without the option for the user to white list them or explicitly enable them. They're just disabled, for your own good, stop asking questions. So now you're forced to run the "developer version" which allows this, and it aggressively updates itself to the latest version every chance it gets.
>Millions of third world peasants maybe
yeah, that's pretty much who I was thinking. Are you suggesting that those people somehow don't count? because they're from the third world? just because we don't care about us citizenship doesn't mean that those people don't exist
It's the biggest economy in the world, and it's notorious for being strict in their immigration policies. We get it, you don't like it because of some ridiculous first world problem or another, but are you really going to use your kids' futures just to make a point? If you don't like the draft and taxes, go vote for the guy who wants to abolish them in the next election, but don't deny your kids a chance at something millions of people would die for.
When he started the whole AI debate, I thought he was trying to make this exact point in a way more subtle way. Humans create a new type of being that is capable of thinking about its own existence, and the first thing we assume is that it'll try to kill us and we must kill it back first, instead of recognizing its right to exist. What does that say about us? The apple doesn't fall far from the tree? But the whole debate turned into "how can we keep AIs under out thumbs for as long as possible" instead. I guess he had to come out and spell it out for us.
Reminds me of this e-mail from Bill Gates http://blog.seattlepi.com/micr...
(talking about the "add/remove programs" screen) "Someone decided to trash the one part of Windows that was usable? The file system is no longer usable. The registry is not usable. This program listing was one sane place but now it is all crapped up."
At least we still have a filesystem
Why not just use the first laser to transmit the data you need in the first place?
Are they sure the cause was socialism and not the oppressive dictatorship they lived under? It's not like their socialist government was democratically elected, maybe that's influenced them more?
Now we know why there are no Tornados in Westeros.
That summary says absolutely nothing. Are they implying that all previous drones have no security? Just connect to them and take over. Luckily some genius from DARPA came up with the brilliant idea of adding a password prompt.
Ironically (not really but let's use that word) phones with multiple sim card slots are popular in 3td world countries. They're talking about active sim cards, not phones.
