My point is that the device is essentially a monitor and keyboard, it doesn't need updates, my phone is what needs them ( via apps, updates, and buying new)
Which is sad, because the US could do a lot better.
I just said that I need half-again as many SI tools as SAE tools. Wouldn't that indicate that I carry and use SI tools, and work on SI machines?
Except for people with 2 left feet.
wouldn't that be
Oregon's suit, alleges that Oracle, the largest tech contractor working on the website, made falsely convinced officials to buy "hundreds of millions of dollars of Oracle products and services that failed to perform as promised." It is seeking $200 million in damages. Oracle issued a statement saying the suit "is a desperate attempt to deflect blame from Cover Oregon and the governor for their failures to manage a complex IT project. The complaint is a fictional account of the Oregon Healthcare Project."
I work on a lot of machinery. To cover a span of 1" or 24mm, I need almost half-again as many mm-sized tools as I need SAE-sized tools at 1/16" increments, and I can't omit any metric sizes because there's no rule that I've found on where one can go from x1mm to x2mm or x3mm spacing between fasteners. With SAE tools, once above 1-3/8, typically one only needs to carry 1/8" increments, and above 2", 1/4" increments.
0 degrees Fahrenheit is really cold, about the coldest that one can stand by simply bundling up, without having to resort to special clothing. 100 degrees Fahrenheit is pretty hot, about the hottest that one can stand without having to take special precautions with hydration and attire. By contrast, -18 degrees Celsius and 37 degrees Celsius aren't terribly intuitive.
SI also lacks a good equivalent to the Foot. Decimeters are only about 4" long, and meters are over 3' long, so nothing in between.
SI reminds me of hyperinflated currencies, where the units don't align well with real-world uses. I like the idea of base-ten conversion given our current numbering system, but the scales are off.
So, basically David Tennant.
