So the name on the desk changed. The calamitous policies, the wars, the complete disregard for human rights continue.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Having ridden a bus in the US, I don't blame them.
HOVs are a political tool. Studies indicate they increase congestion even more by reducing the number of lanes available for most drivers and doing little or nothing to change carpooling habits.
Finally, someone gets it.
Honestly, as an ex-graphic designer, I realize what a big deal the iPhone 4 is. People ought to be popping out champagne corks now that Apple has ushered in an era of LCDs that have the same resolution as print materials.
The Joyo list is pretty irrelevant anyway, used maybe as a guide for high school textbooks and not much else. Most of the new characters they're adding are very common, and everyone knows them already. Actual literacy in Japanese requires more like 3,000-4,000 characters, which everyone just picks up through reading and daily life regardless of what the government's official list says.
And as you probably know, for those learning Japanese or Chinese as a second language, characters start getting a lot easier once you know a thousand of them or so.
I think he qualifies as a nerd rather than a geek.
Oh, "only" economic liability. Whew.
Here in Japan, nationwide 4G is expected to be out by 2012. Docomo has already successfully street-tested 7Gbps 4G. I believe that's two orders of magnitude faster than Sprint's "4G".
Agreed. Had I paid to see it, I would have asked for my money back. (Does that mean they owe me $150,000 or whatever it is they claim a single copy is worth?)
As a somewhat ironic twist, however, the movie's protagonist regularly buys pirated DVDs. Smells like hypocrisy to me.
Patents weren't even strictly invented to prevent copycat manufacturers. They were invented to make manufacturers publish technical implementation specifications on inventions that were too difficult for a copycat to produce without specifications. The incentive to do so was a limited-time monopoly against copycats and disincentive for competitors to compete until the patents had expired.
So really, any invention that is obvious to re-implement without reading the patent specs should be non-patentable.
The primary problem with naked people in Britain is that they're usually British people.
"Windows for Battleships"? Well, it is sort of a hit-and-miss operating system.
NASA technician #1: Voyager 2 is sending a text string to inform us of its status.
(Looks at screen.)
NASA technician #2: Did the reboot work? What does it say?
NASA technician #1: "Keyboard not found. Press F1 to continue."
It's been covered — do a little googling and you'll find Apple's own reasoning. Basically, they looked at both engines, but Konqueror's code was a lot cleaner and easier to work with than Gecko's, so they went with that.
