Assuming how many ads per page? One? If most pages have more than one, that 200 could come down to a more reasonable number. I'd think less than 50/day is achievable for the average internet surfer.
Totally with you. FWIW, YouTube offered to let me "monetize" my videos - I assume by showing annoying ads - but I've declined because I hate YouTube ads so much, and also because it'd probably net me a whopping $0.05/year.
Anyway, I created a toolbar bookmark in all my browsers with the following in the URL field:
If you click it while watching a video on YouTube, it causes the video to fill your browser window (for better resizing control, also to get [nearly] full-screen Flash in Linux), but also has the unintended but welcome side effect that it skips the preroll adds. Obviously this won't work if the "v" parameter in the URL doesn't come first, but that's rare enough that doing it by hand isn't a nuisance.
You're giving me a conspiracy theory with a fuckton of assumptions and unsupported allegations.
That's redundant. Like Mel said, if you can prove it, it wouldn't be a good conspiracy now, would it?
1 "Smart" TV (not too smart IMHO)
I've got a "smart" tv too, but it's not smart enough to count to 10 without skipping numbers. Volume control is hdmi-cec to a reciever, start from zero going up 1 increment at a time it's like 1,2,4,5,6,8,10 but the receiver can keep track of #'s...Goes like that all the way up.. by the time the receiver is at 30ish, the tv thinks it's at 50 something...
Looks like your TV uses Imperial volume, like your receiver, but is displaying metric units.
For a three month mission, this rover is performing fantastically beyond expectations.
Save it, nobody's buying it. Spirit and Opportunity set a higher bar than that.
Hey, Spirit and Opportunity went beyond expectations... way better than Hope and Change, that failed almost instantly.
Well, the leading alternative was Smith and Wesson, but voters weren't quite ready to pull that trigger.
I didn't see anyone else post this info, but in the doc displayed in TFA, right there on page 11 of the S4 Quality Program manual under the section titled "Transition to Offer is not Applicable in the Following Scenarios" is the bullet point:
-Customer volunteers a "Do not sell to me" statement
So there're your magic words. Just finish your initial statement with "...and don't sell to me."
I like to interpret YOLO the other way. You should be really careful, because you only live once!
That was SNL's take, too: YOLO. (If you can't see it, it's a music video advising extreme caution and paranoia because, well, you only live once)
You can do that. You can set your comment preferences penalize "Funny" comments, and then set your threshold accordingly.
I could see it working out for some people - I get around 5 Mbps at home over 4G, and if my typical home data usage per month were low enough that the corresponding mobile data plan cost less than wired home internet, it could very well be cheaper. I imagine this would be true for many people who use the web lightly, and don't stream much video.
Comcast cable internet here is >$60/mo, and equivalent DSL is near that (although slower plans are much less), and T-Mobile's data plans range from $10 for 2GB (what I have) to $60 for 13GB of LTE data (after your data cap the speed is throttled, but you still get data). It wouldn't work for me, but for someone who used the internet mostly for surfing, facebook, etc., but not much video; it could pay off.
When I first got my smartphone, the T-Mobile salesman in the T-Mobile store said she used her T-Mobile phone as a hotspot for all her home internet access. Is this no longer allowed, or are you exempt if you pay the sucker tax for Wi-Fi tethering? (I say sucker tax because you can do it for free if you root your phone, and there's no technical reason they should care).
Right, that or they're just working on a faster way to send letters to their mothers.
Technically, exactly correct.
