Every time Comcast increases my bill, I drop a feature that costs the same amount. They're getting perilously close to the point where that feature will be "TV".
An open message to Comcast execs: be absolutely sure you're ready to make customers decide between your content and Netflix. I bet you'd be surprised how often the response won't be what you'd hope.
Desktop is one thing mobile is another. Without Apple it is DOA.
Yes. I have not been to a public fireworks display without police being there.
Of course it is really silly to compare Burning man with a 4th of July event. I have never been to a 4th of July event were the use of illegal drugs is very public and well known.
I would expect pot use to be pretty open, but perhaps officially frowned upon by organizers owing to its illegal status in Nevada and Federally.
It also overlooks the fact that high end CPUs and GPUs all have power scaling. Your i7 and three overclocked GTX980s are not pulling anything like max power when you are posting on slashdot or watching netflix.
I think it is funny that anyone is shocked at the fact a "gathering" that involves drug use and pyrotechnics is being watched. The fact that they have never came in and raided the event shows that the FBI really is not going in for busting up free speech.
What's the Chinese version of "cutting off your nose to spite your face"?
I think the fact that the pages of the Koran do not glow with unearthly swirling lights or set fire to the hands of un-believers is a better indicator it did not come from heaven.
So they set up double-blind studies where half the group is given a placebo prayer and the other half is given a real prayer?
Some scholars believe, however, that Muhammad did not receive the Quran from heaven, as he claimed during his lifetime
So are there actual scholars, I mean people who put facts before belief, who DO believe the divine inspiration story?
Are are those "scholars" merely religious functionaries whose "scholarship" is really just a form of theology?
Most of my friends have kids or grown kids. Oh and they are married as well.
I am kind of surprised that Markus is not in the same position as I am. He is 36 but he is single. I think that is a big issue. Being super rich and single could make it really difficult to find a true mate.
186,000 Miles per Second. It's not just a good idea. IT'S THE LAW.
