A good book in its own right, it has a great scene where the protagonist is given real meat to eat instead of the vat grown he's eaten all his life. He's quite horrified at the thought of having eaten "dead meat". A small but interesting part of the story.
Interesting, What kind of third world country do you live in that has a Data Cap? Don't you have companies (Here (Ireland) we have Three (that's the company name)) that offer unlimited data?
Yes, but AFTER those, it could be a Slashdot Poll.
Assemble them from pieces, surely?
Steam Sales took me away from WoW bigtime. There are just so many single and co-op games out there to keep me busy, and they cost much less in the sales than a monthly sub to WoW does.
Can you give advice on how i'd manage this on my mobile phone Data connection? I regularly watch netflix on my phone, but whenever I try to watch something on youtube, it takes forever for the video to load and I get repeated buffering issues.
for info, I am using a Galaxy S4 on the 3 Network (Ireland) Running Jellybean.
If they removed the ability to control and launch nukes from 17 people, my mind imagines this to still only be a portion of the overall number. Just how many people CAN launch nukes?
But humans also love the convenience of the Microwave Dinner, or Take-Out. If a great majority of humans wanted to be in control so much, we'd be in control of cooking all our own meals and the Fast Food industry would be dead.
Autonomous cars are all about 2 things
1) Like going to a Michelin (pardon the pun) Star Restaurant you get someone in control of driving that's better than you. Who's job in life is being a better driver than you are.
2) Convenience. While the Take-Out is on the way (delivered by drone likely) you get to do other things. Same with driving. When the car is commuting you somewhere, you get to do something else.
People do still like to cook for themselves on occasion, and there are ample cooking enthusiasts out there, but there's more than enough people who prefer a meal prepared by someone else to allow that business to thrive. The same will be for Autonomous cars, there's more than enough people who would rather not drive themselves. There will still be opportunity for people to drive themselves, hopefully in the safe designated area of a race track (perhaps they can even simulate gridlock if they are feeling nostalgic!)
Yet people still complain that 3D movies are too dark because of having to wear the Polaroids!
Alien Teacher: And now we come to the planet known to its inhabitants as "Earth". Interesting fact about this planet, the 'dominant' life form actually developed atomic power BEFORE space travel (powered by fossil fuels)
Alien Student: Wait, if they had yet to leave the planet, how did they test their atomics?
Alien Teacher: Well
Alien Student: Oh, that's probably for the best, they probably wouldn't fit in with the rest of us too well, in that case.
Exactly, who's to say that dumb people aren't a rare commodity in the greater galactic economic system. This would make Earth VERY valuable!
It's a different kind of smart. Instead of remembering all the information in my own head, I instead train myself to better perform the process of finding out this information with the tools I have available to me.
One isolated study, perhaps, but where else can you get a large enough sample group for mental health issues, other than in a group that believes in God?
Castle Crashers and Magica are just 2 examples (off the top of my head because I'm playing both right now) that work in multiplayer mode on controllers through the XBOX wireless controller. The Steam Big Screen option has been going good for a while now and there's more than a few games that run fine with multiple USB controllers.
