There's plenty of politicians who will do whatever it takes to benefit the dead. For some of them, it's their core voter group.
Yeah, but the blind never saw it coming and the deaf just don't want to hear about it.
Developing a working prototype and developing a commercially-feasible product are two different things. You could conceivably meet the requirements of this, but by using components or techniques that are not commercially feasible due to cost, safety, or other issues. However, it would be a big step in the direction towards doing such a thing. Google is paying for you to help make that step... not necessarily to develop a device that's worth commercializing.
"if you want a solar-powered Chromebook"
I'm a little confused... why would you convert dc to ac, only to convert it back to dc for the computer to use? If it's a dedicated power source for one device, wouldn't it make more sense to keep it dc?
I have an LG Optimus F3 from Virgin, and before that was an LG Optimus Slider, also Virgin. Although they're a tad underpowered and the Slider froze up once in a while (every few months), I've had no gripes with them. Considering the F3 was $60, I'm pretty goddamned happy with what it can do. The closest thing I've seen to a bug with the Optimus F3 is that GPS will sometimes freeze if I'm also using music, texting and bluetooth all at the same time, but that's more likely to be a performance thing. Again, for the price, perfectly acceptable. There's nothing wrong with cheap android phones as long as you use them for their intended tasks. You don't buy a Honda Civic and then complain that it can't tow your 30 foot party boat.
The problem is what happens when it's a government breach? Have taxpayers fine themselves?
It stopped being our state a long time ago.
" insert a screen before every show"
Don't be silly. They'd insert the screen right over the damned show.
But what about that ATM slot on the front of my computer?
"He's also accused of trolling on Facebook."
If that doesn't spell out terrorist, I don't know what does.
I can see this sucking for people who kill their battery browsing Slashdot while waiting for their flight.
"other" would have been fine. Hell, it's even fewer letters than "regular".
It strongly implies that a disability is the only thing that determines if a person regular/normal. Otherwise it would be acceptable to say "black people or regular folks"... which most people would agree isn't generally acceptable even if non-blacks are the majority. The easiest, simplest and best way would be to just say "other" folks. It acknowledges that disabled people are in a separate group without implying that a disability puts them in a completely separate category from regular or normal people. I don't take offense because the poster obviously didn't mean it like that, but it's still a very rude way of phrasing something. In general, if you can't replace a group with "black people" without sounding racist, you should probably reconsider how you phrased something.
" for regular folks"
Was not aware that I wasn't a regular folk. You learn something new every day.
What happens, with the ones I've paid attention to, is that when the timer gets to 0 (or the hand stops flashing if it's one of those lights), the light turns from green to yellow, so the delay is the time of the yellow light, plus the slight delay in which lights in both directions are red before the other direction turns green.
Sadly, there are a lot of behaviors that driver's *should* learn. Such as noticing lights from cars coming the other way on trees/houses when driving at night, or how to handle high beams from opposing traffic.
