posting weekly video lectures means a ton of preparation time for the instructor.
Hopefully they can reuse the videos for multiple classes.
Because it uses your mobile device's camera. It might not be as convenient to drag your computer and webcam around from room to room.
He meant bold-faced lie, not bald-faced. See here for proof: http://goo.gl/GOShs (it's a google-fight link in case I mistyped it).
Except if you put the phrases in quotes... then "bald-faced lie" wins.
Since I'm not sure if the parent was a joke or not, I won't bother finding a credible source.
I cringe everytime I hear english. It's the language of borrowed words, and I'm pretty sure the rules for it were invented a lot later, when people realized they might have to teach it.
I agree it's a language of borrowed words, but it doesn't seem as obvious to me that English developed much differently than most other languages. I am not a linguist (IANAL?), so I don't know, but maybe you have an example of another widely spoken language where "rule" development was a priority when it was gaining usage?
How about those of us who don't use a cellphone to begin with? I'm a web designer and a landline serves my needs just fine, thankyou. Track me, I wish you luck
The funny thing is that it probably isn't much harder to figure out your movement patterns, based on your call patterns even from a land line. In a relatively short amount of time, someone could probably figure out your work schedule. And if you don't need a cell phone, you probably spend more than the average amount of time at home and work anyway.
You probably spend close to the 93% of your time at home or at work and you probably take a route to work that is similar to what any mapping program would suggest.
What's missing could be some of the smaller but still regular habits. We wouldn't know if you go to the grocery store on the same day every week or if/where you go to church, etc.
