I am curious as to what benefit this resolution provides. Changing the sampling rate to every 2 seconds would probably provide equally sufficient data while halving data rates and doubling transmitter battery life.
I am assuming that Google has to pay sales tax to buy the food to begin with so really there is not taxes being avoided here.
"'I buy my lunch with after-tax dollars,' said McMahon. 'And I have to pay taxes to support free meals for those Google employees.'"
How exactly do tax dollars go to fund the lunches at Google's cafeterias? Last time I checked, that money came from revenue earned by Google, through its business. You know, from working.
How would the government prove that a given employee is actually eating the meals? Do they have a swipe card that tracks them? What if they are bringing their own lunch?
I have always been of the opinion that while Christian conservatives decry Islam as evil, they are secretly jealous of it. Afterall, Islam has permeated many governments in the Middle East to a degree which most Christian conservatives could only hope to achieve.
Adult pornography is not generally illegal, true, but unless you actually work in the industry it probably is not appropriate for the office.
Fairly, however, an employee should be instructed as to what is and is not appropriate for work before they can be disciplined for violating it. I remember being presented with an internet use policy when I was hired, as well as sexual harassment training. So it you are told in advance not to do certain things at work, and you freely agree not to do them, you can then be disciplined for doing said actions.
Otherwise one could argue the old "No one told me porn at work was not allowed!" a la George Costanza.
An EULA is a contract, and the first rule of contracts is that they cannot constitute anything illegal. You may sign a contract giving a third party full permission to murder you, but since murder is illegal, a jury will still convict said third party.
Although Sony doesn't officially support it, there is software out there that will let you make your own books in BBeB format.
Calibre (http://calibre.kovidgoyal.net/) is one that comes to mind.
