Google Glass is not a heads up display. But a real heads up display is actually really helpful. It's focused at infinity so your speed seems to be part of the world in front of you. Yes, you shouldn't focus on it; but it does allow you to keep your eyes up and looking around, not going back down to the speedo to make sure you're not more than 10 over the limit.
So in Australia, talking on your phone in a car is baned, not just texted. Although you can talk on your phone if you have a handsfree (bluetooth ear piece or built-in to the car; you can only look at your phone to answer it).
I avoid the issue entierly because I sold my car two years ago.
> North Korea, not having any Netizens, presumably gets a perfect score in this regard. I suggest the whole thing is hopelessly biased.
Even with the new metrics, The DPRK had a score of 179, 2nd from the bottom of the list!
Seems acculturate too, since speaking out against the government (or even being accused of speaking against the government) of North Korea leads almost immediately to a labour camp. (DPRK is classified by many indexes as a "Slave State" based economy.
It's like that episode of Futurama
Iceweasel is a direct port I believe due to the Mozilla binary/branding issue (that Gentoo avoids interestingly enough, with a disclaimer).
Firefox fork in the future?
It is actually a serious problem. A laser hitting the cockpit windshield reflects and temporally blinds the pilot...very dangerous during takeoffs and landings.
That being said, I totally agree with the previous commenter being bat shit crazy. Harsher penalties won't stop the action. You need to fix the plans so they don't have issues when it with lasers.
Ummm...that's...insane. Let's bankrupt a 13 year old who just doesn't know any better.
Here's a better idea. What if airplane manufactures could design their aircraft windshields in such a way as to let in normal light, but reflect high intensity lasers. Hey, that would help in parts of the world where laws like this are totally unenforceable, like international pilots who fly into low and mid income nations.
This will be the next Snowden leak
New Zealand non-citizens can vote. It's one of the very few States in the world that allows non-citizens to vote.
But the US is the ONLY country that taxes you on earnings you make overseas while in another country. I mean, not unless you make more than $90k USD a year, but you still gotta file.
I know the argument of "Well embassies" and all those other American benefits (like heath insurance..oh wait...)
NZ taxes your American retirement accounts after you've been here for four years, even if you're not a citizen (just a resident). Seriously? I've already paid taxes on my Roth IRA in one country and I have to pay takes in the future on my 401ks. What entitles NZ to any of that money? None of it was earned here?
Fucking taxes man.
They could be answers to your security questions. Personally, my securit question answers are alway additional passwords. I form them based off an algorithm off the first and last words in the question.
Windows 8 is a lot faster. It does look better too and games preform better. It's hardly Vista.
The start menu think was fucking dumb and they really should released an "official" start menu that works, instead of having to pay $5 for a 3rd party one.
But other than the Start Menu, Windows 8 is actually just a faster Windows 7. I don't see what everyone is bitching about.
I agree with the original poster. You do a lot of documents and Open/Libreoffiice are horrible alternatives. I'd rather write things in Markdown or Laytex than use that shit. Word is actually pretty good for what it is.
I'm blind you insensative clod!
