Enough with this farenheit crap. Nobody in the world uses that dumb scale.
And I do too, dont get me wrong. They are good and it makes people fat and thats at least in some part, why your country are mine (Mexico) are on the brink of drowning due to the weight of our colective mass. However, we do eat insects, and they are fucking good. At least if you know how to cook them, and that we do. Three absolutely delicious dishes (that even americans would find good if they didnt know what they are), come to mind:
- Gusanos de Maguey, they are lightly sauteed in corn oil and mild spices, served with avocado, obviously freshly hand-made tortillas, and a set of nice green tomato salsas. This are worms that grow in maguey, which is a cousin of the same plant we make tequila out off.... cool, huh?
- Escamoles, absolutely delicious, id say this is the true caviar of insect dishes in mexico, and its expensive by the way. They are the eggs of a kind of ant and are sauteed in butter with parsely and very finely diced onions, maybe a very little bit of garlic. Also served with corn tortillas and very good salsa.
- Chapulines are a snack. This are a kind of wild crickets (we dont go hunting for them behind your sink, obviously), and they are cooked on the comal, the thingie we use to bake tortillas on the kitchen fire (kind of a round, flat pan). When they are on the fire, we sprinkle salt, lime juice, powdered pepper and just toast them there until they are crunchy, munchy and delicious. A pack of those can last a long time outside of the fridge and are a spectacular snack if your camping and doing outdoor sports and that kind of thing.
Now let me say that part of the eek factor of insects is that one imagines eating them raw. This is not how its done, people, you cook the suckers well, using good ingredients and you will never encounter any kind of eeky texture in your mouth. The texture in the case of the gusanos and the chapulines is much like a vegetable that has been toasted or sauteed, and the aroma is a bit tingy, yeah, but if the bugs are fresh, its combines very nice with the spices.
Finaly, people, if you ever go to Queretaro or a very good mexican restaurant in LA (ive heard of a oaxacan one "La guelaguetza" and anotherone from queretaro), and you dont have escamoles, you are a stupid asshole that deserves to eat out of a bag your whole life. Escamoles are a fucking fois gras (without the gavage).
Well as a product that you attach to your phone, they would have to provide an API so that developers can incorporate capabilites for the glass thingie in their apps, wouldnt they? Methinks you just get a little of the butthurt when the simplest critique of apple is made. I myself are an apple user. Im writing this from my mac, I have an iphone 5 and have spent a ridiculous ammount of money in the apple ecosystem. I sure love the idea of a HUD for my phone and some apps and you might or not agree with me, but imagine if it was so good (better than standard voice recognition, better than available voice command interface, supperb overlays) that it displaced the phone's display.
I dont know if it will be that good, but if it was, it could change the smart phone game.
Ok let me explain:
It is not a phone, it has (or shouldnt or will evolve to) no comunications capabilities beyond connecting to your already existing phone. It is a display, a voice gatherer and an api for your phone.
Its posibilities, if my assumptions are right, are endless and i do think that, done right, it could be a game changer. However, I also think nobody copies shit better than apple. If this works, you can be sure the iEyeEye (ay ay ay), will be simpler, stupider and more loved.
He did nothing wrong. He put some info out that was already public. Nothing, absolutely nothing wrong. And keep in mind he didnt get to trial. We dont really know if he wouldve won or not.
The thing is, if my parents told me they would have to sell their house to help pay for my legal fees because a butthurt-cause-of-wikileaks Obama prosecutor sees Voldemort in any computer-literate person doing what is right without hurting anyone or actually breaking any reasonable law, I would probably consider suicide as well. Not my parents nor anyone deserve to pay for what I did, even if it was right which it fucking most certaintly was.
Anti hacking laws in the US are incredibly idiotic, written by technically illiterate people with clear unreasonable technophobia engraved in their neanthertal microcortex.
For example, you americans wont be able to unlock your phones bought from today onwards without breaking the law. How is that for FUCKING STUPID?
It doesnt matter which, it matters what. If you think MySQL has design flaws, fix them. That looks good on your resume. If you like or are interested on PostgreSQL then go and find what it need and fix it. That kind of low level hack-master job will get you hired in any company that does databases, not just postgres or mysql.
SCADA is old and almost never replaced. It is the nature of the beast to not touch stuff that moves or monitors big and critical things. This is not a software engineer's idea, but an industrial/mechanic engineer's idea of how to work an indistrial facility. There is a gap in understanding between people that do the (really)hardware stuff in an industrial place, and the software people that make SCADA stuff.
But its all good IMHO because what is going to happen is that SCADA will get better, and believe me, it should. Every single SCADA ive seen sucks to the point of oblivion, they are all made with all four paws.
Because all your other apps, mail and addressbook will prefer to use crappy ios maps all the time, regardless of if you made your own superdupermaps app.
This is exactly what I mean.
Or else ill rant until im considered a nuissance to them.
Thats what siri will say for sure.
It will open youtube content in youtube, which is quite the thing you wanna do if you dont have a mactube or whatever competing service that matches youtube's content tit for tat.
A maps app is different: why would they go through the effort of making a new one if they are goin to work just as well with google's content that is already well established and developed? No. This brick, they will pass to customers.
It took google quite a while to get their stuff workiing in my country. I patiently waited but now, out of nowhere, im going to have to wait again. Or maybe not. Ill shut up if it works just as bad as in the US, but I know it wont: if it sucks 1x there, it will suck 10x here. If it takes T time to fix it in the US, it will take 10T time to fix it for my country. Its just the way the economy works.
Yes, if you live in Monterrey, California. Unfortunatly, I live in Monterrey, Mexico and if google took ages to get this clusterfuck of a city right, im pretty sure we are at the tail of apple's priorities right now, specially since they are getting butchered by people from, damn, Monterrey, California.
Fuck them. I need this to work well and I aint shutting up until it works perfect. They wont loose me as a customer: ive tens of thousends of songs in imatch, ive bought plenty from itunes, i gave my dad his first ipod and ipad and he now has an Air, i have an ipad latest, i have a macbook pro i have a shuffle. Im fucked. Im never getting out of here.
But I can be pretty nasty if shit doesnt work like it has to. And work it will or else.
Hell its also impossible to know if he is posting from cupertino. Asking this question makes him what? A shill. We are all more or less anonymous but an AC really is more anonymous than us with a profile and a posting history.
I have used an iphone since iphone 3. I dont care if you believe me. Im posting from an osx lion early macbook pro 4gb mem (that is also slower than it should, by the way) and thats why Im stuck to iphone as well: nothing will integrate as well with this thing.
