A lot of players still see this as cheating. Embracing cheating may, at the very least, control it so that Blizzard gets the profits instead, but at the cost of legitimizing it and making it mainstream; this is something that may leave a lot of players with a bad taste in their mouth.
This is actually one reason why I stopped playing the game. Guild Wars 2 fails to make you feel like your really progressing anywhere. After a week of playing the game I sat and thought, "what's the point?".
I'm still bummed how how disappointing Guild Wars 2 is. It's nothing at all like Guild Wars 1. I spent thousands of hours in GW1 and loved that game to death. It's a little depressing logging on every now and then to a mostly empty district.
I've found that the issue isn't always whether they understand what they manage, but that you have a person trained as an engineer that is now in a position to manage, something that requires management/social skills. That requires a whole different skill set (a good manager doesn't even always need to be technically minded, as long as he can provide his workers with the resources and motivation needed to be productive).
The only reason why it's acceptable to allow ICANN to be controlled by the U.S. is because they have the strongest free speech laws. I simply don't trust other countries as much as the U.S. in that regard.
Sorry, but as someone with over 200 website tabs open you are so far from the normal user that your issues are yours alone. You are the exception and that saying, "I have issues running this alongside 200 other web tabs" is not a good reason to change an entire website.
All that attention and hype for idSoftware's new game all wasted down the drain. Zenimax, why?
In the context of automated driving this pairs beautifully. The future is very much having computers drive us, it simply is more efficient and much safer. Giving them extra tools to enhance safety is great considering we aren't concerned about being liable for what the computer decides to do (since that is the liability of the manufacturer).
As a forgetful introvert this technology would help me socially in so many ways.
A better question is if they don't mind the risk if they already got their money.
If enough Engineers are already studying regardless of this proposed incentive, then it is not necessary. It'd be nice to give free money to all kinds of students, but to pick and choose when they don't need it to sustain employment to begin with is the wrong approach.
Hiring older folk is awesome because you know they aint ever leaving because who else would hire their old ass? (in all seriousness, older folk do tend to stay with the company longer, which is an enormous benefit)
Then keep your older router or buy a compatible one. Hell, they still sell 56k modems if you need them. This is just about new hardware.
Mind you that a real starship battle would be done with lasers and thousands of miles between players, people would try to maximize distance between each other. Eve is more of a glorified star wars than anything else.
No, unless we somehow also know the voltage of the battery. Assuming it's 1.3V like a phone battery, then it tells us the energy density.
