You weren't at the last PAX Prime, nor will you be at the upcoming PAX East. Any story behind that?
"My Blackberry Q10 has a removable battery, and it reboots itself whenever I set it down on a desk too hard. Most or all smartphones with removable batteries that I've used in the past did the same thing."
"Weird. Every phone I've ever owned has a removable battery. Not one has ever done this, even when accidentally I drop them on the floor. How hard are you slamming them down?"
"This has *everything* to do with the jackass owner trying to ensure that nobody can take their own pictures, because I guarantee he's got a photographer onboard who's taking "professional" pictures which are sold at ludicrous prices. Have you *been* to a themepark?"
Think that through for a second. Any technology in place to affect client's cameras will also affect the hired photographer's cameras.
Also, even if you ignore the deceptiveness of the formatting of the original list, and while I appreciate that they cited the source, I really wish it wasn't from a website whose sub-headline is "Conservative Policy Research and Analysis."
Two years ago I would have looked down on this, saying that the minimum requirement for participating in government would be showing up one day a year to check some boxes on a form.
However, those two years have brought on voter registration laws designed to disenfranchise, laws so blatantly racist that it's pants-on-heads insane that anybody let them get away with it.
Gerrymandered districts can't be fixed til the next census. Mobile voting could be a hell of a stopgap before then.
You guys don't get it - cops aren't against this because it'll catch them breaking the law, they do that all the time now with impunity. They're against it because their boss will be able to see them taking naps in parking lots.
The only way you get to a cop is to threaten to take away their OT, tenure, or pension.
I think that's ass-backwards, but I guess that's just me.
I expect most people, even in the church, don't truly understand what Christian Scriptures actually teach.
Be careful with words like "truly" in the context of religion.
Starbucks uses a dark roast. The darker the roast, the more caffeine is burned out. The thing that makes it stronger is the espresso extraction method, not the coffee; the problem with that is, the dark roast removes a lot of the complexity and the amount needed per cup raises the price.
If you want to experience a real coffee rush that doesn't cost you a fortune, get a light roast and put it through a Mr. Coffee. Tastes better for a fraction of the price.
There's an "FBI Surveillance Van" SSID observable from where I'm sitting now. Also an MI5.
Not to be outdone, my two networks are currently The Tal Shiar and The Obsidian Order.
The findings conveniently move the goalposts - it implies that the issue is that the spying is being done incorrectly, not that it's being done at all; if it were done "correctly" we would never know, which was the NSA's original win condition.
Yep. We're fucked.
"America" is not a person. Did you mean to say Obama?
