Hedges and sets odds on the bets such that no matter the outcome, there is profit.
Until that day comes, I will refer to globalization with a more accurate name: "neo-feudalism".
Hmmm. That's a good point, especially since I carry around a big boat Note 2. But there's something I did with my Newton that I still don't do with any electronic device and that is take notes. It's the only device I ever had that recognized my native handwriting (not printing, not Graffiti from the Palm OS era), which is an amazing feat because I can barely read my own handwriting.
Sad thing was, I got much more utility out of my Newton than my iPad. I don't even know *where* my iPad is right now, and I'm not even sure where to look for it. It could be stolen for all I know.
Of course, if someone did that to Apple nearly 20 years ago when the stock was in the toilet but they still had a pile of money they would've pretty seriously screwed themselves. Not saying it's never a right choice to do that but it's not always right either.
You have zero expectation of privacy from the authorities. If however, you embarrass the authorities you are suddenly breaching important privacy protections. Funny how that works, eh?
Even outside of the valley in more normal priced places, if the first digit of that six figures is a '1', it's still solidly middle class, nothing more.
Came in publisher bundles that represented a way to get a bunch of other games I wanted for a lot less than buying them individually would cost. I know there's a racing game I got in one of those that I have never installed and never will just because racing games aren't my cuppa.
Heh. I've written many gotos in C. Almost universally, the label they go to is called "error_exit" which sits right before resource deallocators and the return statement.
It's the fucking paperwork and receipt saving that goes with it. Frankly, I'd be willing to pay more to not even have to think about it.
it gives me an estimate, based on current page turning speed I assume,
I email it from some plugin in FF. It's great when i figure i'll read some documentation or what have you in the tub.
My kindle is really my preferred way to read a book now.
The android app is pretty nice too. When I read on my nexus it gives me an estimate, based on current page turning speed I assume, of how many minutes it will take to finish the chapter. That is really awesome. But the nexus is thicker, heavier and has shorter battery life than the kindle.
Mine has lasted me quite a while. My kids have had issues with theirs but our experience has been the same as yours. Amazon service has been outstanding and we've had no problem getting replacements. And for a family it is ideal. Everyone is connected to my account. When we buy a book from Amazon (or email it in from Calibre) then everyone can read it.
Yes, i just appreciated that now. No reason.
Right now in Xubuntu: The WindowButtons/Taskbar shows the wrong windows when using multiple monitors, the xfce-volumed is constantly hanging, not registering volume keys and using the wrong soundcard, the indicator-applet is completely broken and putting apps into fullscreen doesn't work properly any more either with multiple monitors. Most of this used to work a year or two ago. It feels like XFCE is just getting more and more broken as time progresses. It's pretty frustrating, guess it's time to try Mate.
