I called the local call-before-you-dig number because I was having foundation work done and you have to have an underground lines located before you can so much as plant bedding plants around here. A lady showed up and followed procedure for the gas and electrical lines then she pulled out her water witching wands to locate the rest of the stuff. Crazy. I called and left a complaint but they never got back to me. One day she's going to have some equipment malfunction and she's going to use her wands to locate an electrical line and it'll kill someone.
Suzuki is a tree hugging hippie. He jumped the shark a LONG time ago.
Didn't say it was perfect, but it's an idea worth implementing.
They should crowdsource this. Simply mark new apps as being in a probationary period and give downloaders the option of tagging the app as misleading, malware, abuse of permissions, etc. It would greatly help their human staff find the bad apples quickly. Of course the same goes for Google and Apple.
I'm in Canada and it worked fine for me, even with the IE 8 I have access to at work.
Didn't know National Geographic had a time machine.
I know people that have far more than $75k worth of data sitting on their home PCs with no backup.
Unless they had a high suspicion that e-readers cause poor retention then why even study it unless they were skewed from the start? This is like pitting peanut butter cookies versus chocolate chip cookies as cancer cures. You'll likely find that one works better than the other just by chance, but the fact is that neither of them has any cancer curing effect whatsoever. It's a suspicious, stupid study.
A gyroscope can measure absolute orientation in the absence of a gravitational field.
What's obvious is that we can continue to get smaller and more powerful than what we have already. Do you doubt that in a year's time, let alone five, computers will be smaller, more powerful, and consume less energy? And then there are mobile devices, which have a LONG way to go, especially in regards to batteries. Thinking that we've already reached the limits of speed and size is laughable. It really is up there with "shut down the patent office because everything has been invented" attitude.
Yes. Next question please.
I'm in my thirties and I haven't been paid by cheque... ever. It's always been direct deposit.
Absolutely. They should be punished for their flagrant false advertising.
I never understood this. Teams of engineers cram the electronics into the smallest, lightest case they can, and then the end users goes and shoves it in a 1/4" thick rubber sleeve.
Home routers fail after a few years anyway so most home users are probably IPV6 ready.
