Christ. I just had a disturbing premonition... in 2114 it'll be "The Federal Internet Commission exists because of fuckwads 100+ years ago".
Because you purchased it while geographically located in Russia, using a Russian Steam account, a Russian billing address and a Russian credit cart (or Russian PayPal account or whatever)?
You can't easily accomplish these things by just "buying it from a Russian site".
I prefer "Correlation does not prove causation".
Edward Tufte suggested "Correlation is not causation but it sure is a hint."
None of the old formats ever dies
Sure they do. See a lot of PCX or TGA files around these days?
Here's a table of RTGs in space probes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R...
Almost half of them are under 20kg. One is only 2.1kg.
Ummm... why? You think it's preposterous that software exploits are bought and sold?
"It is common for individuals or companies who discover zero-day attacks to sell them to government agencies for use in cyberwarfare." - Zero-day attack
- Zero-day exploit in Apple’s iOS operating system 'sold for $500,000'
- Nations Buying as Hackers Sell Flaws in Computer Code
- How Spies, Hackers, and the Government Bolster a Booming Software Exploit Market
- Cyberwar’s Gray Market
5-10 minutes? It's a television series, not a movie.
The entire first episode (at LEAST) will be devoted to the first short story ("The Psychohistorians"), of which Hari Seldon is the main character.
In fact, I expect they will want to do one season per book (3 seasons to cover the trilogy). If that is the case, having each of the 5 short stories that comprise Foundation take up two episodes each would make for an ideal 10-episode season of TV.
Sorry, but the steaming pile of ignorance is yours.
> 1. Almost all serious websites are xhtml compliant.
Um, bullshit? Want to try backing that up with something? A random sampling of cnn.com, google news, apple.com, Facebook, Youtube, and LinkedIn shows they all use HTML5 doctype. And here's a graph showing XHTML's continuous decline as it dies a well deserved death.
> 2. Do you imagine that all the HTML5 support that already exists came from nowhere? It was browser devs implementing the pre-reccomendations for HTML5
No, it was browser devs (WHATWG, as the GP correctly pointed out) ignoring the W3C's strict XHTML idiocy and opting for a saner route.
The WHATWG was formed in response to the slow development of World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web standards and W3C's decision to abandon HTML in favor of XML-based technologies.

We got HTML5 despite the W3C, not thanks to them.
Many of these places have everyone bathing and drinking from the same water supply, and there are cultural practices like touching the dead before burial. Additionally there is a lack of trust in western medical practices.
They're assuming cases are underreported by a factor of 2.5.
"The revenant's eyes were a deep, cold blue. As it shambled ever closer, he could smell the rot of outdated drivers and decaying DLLs. As its cold unfeeling fingers closed around his throat, he could just make out the secret truth written inside those dead blue eyes..."
"A fatal exception OE has occurred at 0028:C02A0948 IN VXD VWIN32. The current application will be terminated."
> google got to cherrypick a desolate strip of highway
They drove down the Las Vegas strip. In May.
Pretty much the opposite of "desolate strip of highway".
I'm interested in Apple Pay.
I'm not interested in a bigger phone, or the watch.
This leaves me with no options.
Love or hate Apple, they're good at simple. There's no way they're going to make people do a full unlock and locate an app for NFC payments, it'll be integrated right into the OS and in all likelihood be disgustingly convenient.
I imagine something like, you'll have activated NFC from your slide-up tray... then probably just swipe your phone near the merchant terminal, slide to accept an alert box, and then thumbprint to confirm the transaction.
We play 5-6 player Catan all the time and don't find the extra build phase slows anything down at all.
When the dice are passed to the next player, anybody who wants to build something just says "Buying X at the end of your turn" and that's that. In the extremely rare case of a conflict, you just resolve the builds clockwise from the current player. There's no need to stop and ask each player in turn "are you building anything?", which is the only way I can imagine it "bogging things down".
If anything, it speeds things up considerably (you can get new towns/cities out that much faster which immediately improves your income position, and it really cuts down on people needing to discard half their hand on a 7).
