It's really stupid to think in numbers per-person when the problem is an absolute quantity emitted into the atmosphere.

I mean, just look at the data

You emit 1.19% of the total CO2 emitted by all countries. What are larger cuts on your part really going to do?

Australia's numbers are high because you don't have tens of millions of people living in dirt huts. Really want to do that? And the laws repealed were changing the number from what, 17 to 16.75...

Please make it moddable. I want a chainsaw on my wheelchair. Woooo!

Now why would I make WHeX WITHOUT chainsaws!

A chainsaw on every corner. The footrests? Both chainsaws.

And then of course there's the Tow Saw, which is a chainsaw tied to a rope that bounces around randomly as you roll forward.

You're sitting down. You could even sell wheels that attached to the side of office char armrests... and a gun accessory that tracked position relative to your body to match the virtual version.

Or, a Battlezone clone where you are in an open cockpit.

I don't understand why you Aussies think this even matters. Do you know how much carbon you guys produce next to China or India? A laughably small amount. You could start building factories tomorrow in the outback that did nothing but spew raw CO2 into the atmosphere and it would take you hundreds of years to catch up to China alone.

If CO2 is to really be reduced the effort falls squarely on large semi-developed countries like China or India. Even the US has already cut back as much as they can, and that without a carbon tax also... we just weren't as stupid as you to pass it to start with.

You guys are just wising up to the reality that carbon taxes are as much a ruse to make people money as anything else. Where do you think "carbon taxes" go anyway...

Comment: You mean Little Brother? (Score 2) 126

30 years after the original 1984 commercial the rebels have been co-opted and are now partnering with big brother.

In what way is IBM Big Brother any more? They have not been for a decade or more... if anything they are the Nerdy Brother, just hanging out on the side doing technical stuff while Microsoft gives them a wedgie every time he comes back home.

But in reality this pairing is to keep both companies strong against Google, not Microsoft.

but it's not easier to bring a tablet and a laptop than to just bring a laptop, right?

No, but it is easier to bring just a laptop than a tablet. Any USB source charges it. You can carry it more easily, and use it in more places.

since a laptop does everything a tablet does

Not actually true (touch interface far better for things like drawing) but let's pretend it is.

A laptop may be able to do everything a tablet does but if the tablet is far lighter and has better batter life guess which most people would rather have on a trip?

In a foreign country would you rather wander around looking for a WiFi cafe with a tablet tucked in your purse, or a backpack with a laptop?

This is exactly why tablets have done as well as they have, because they replace laptops for some scenarios where portability is more convenient.

Because you are used to the area, you do not think about driving as much near home - instead thinking about what you will do where you are going or when you get home, when you are close. It's easy to grow inattentive and miss a change that leads to an accident.

Picking someone up and dropping someone off has none of the risks of familiarity since each situation is different.

What are you talking about?

Look, we all know you are lost at this point but the deal is that with system extensions a user of your app can perform different editing of images in your app based on what other applications they have installed.

DUH.

Did you even look at what iOS8 can do at all? Or are you just totally ignoring the key point?

Actually yes it is, if you've developed an image editing application you want it to produce the same results on whatever platforms you target.

Actually no it's not. If your image editing program can make further use of external plug-ins, then you don't care about having it produce the same across platforms because it will never be the same FOR EACH USER.

Would you truly argue that image editing programs should not allow for plugins, that there is no value? Because you are.

There is some base level of functionality it is useful to provide. But my point is why would you PAY for only that base?

So either that means you embed this thing in iOS8 and have a separate way to get to it from the system extensions for editing, which means it's not the same as any other platform...

Or you don't use it and just use the system extensions which means it's not the same as any other platform...

OR you only us this and don't allow system extensions in which case it's the same across all platforms and zero people are using your product on iOS because every other app gets to use system extensions for editing instead of your singular library.
