It has mechanisms to lock you out until you sync with itunes or erase your device after 10 tries. It depends on how you have it configured.
Every uber car I have been in was far, far, far nicer than cabs.
I have used urber many, many times and each and every time the car was nicer, the person was less scary and the experience was MUCH more convenient.
For me it has zero to do with price (I am not paying, my company does).
Office is essential to your typical office worker. I use word/excel daily and powerpoint at least once a month. Being able to read those documents on a phone/tablet is interested... not sure I care about being able to edit them though.
Based on my experience I disagree with your (often cited) theory. Of the cities I have lived in that decided to build roads vs ones that did not the only thing that has been a variable is the quality of life and drive times. People actually prefer to live in the suburbs and will still chose to live there regardless of traffic.
Who cares what it is called if it works. Just have a mindset if continual process improvement. If something causes pain and isn't offering value remove it. Don't be afraid to try new stuff etc.
That is actually a common anecdote in agile training/books.
You describe a bad team and bad management. No methodology will help there.
If you don't care what the people on your "team" are doing you aren't actually on a team at least as far as your work goes you are working independently on a project. So yea daily meetings would be pointless.
Wouldn't altitude and velocities in geosynchronous orbit have to be exactly identical by definition? Otherwise it wouldn't be geosynchronous orbit and stuff would drift forward or backward.
Saturn V program had payload to LEO of 120,000kg. Falcon Heavy 53,000kg.
I don't like windows or linux all that well (they are just tools) but for a user desktop I far, far, far, prefer windows to anything linux and I run quite a few linux machines as novelty (they are fun to mess with). If I had to use linux as my desktop I could but it is buggy.
Common linux distros break far too often and due to how the popular distros work require re-installing more often than windows (the upgrades break fairly often).
I understand it just fine. I run linux on a server and have it installed in various VMs to mess with. I wouldn't dream of running it as my main machine as I feel Linux just isn't ready for prime time on the desktop.
I have no problem fixing various things when they come up but they come up far, far too frequently for a consumer level OS.
Whatever it does RDP is far, far faster and more versatile than X forwarding. X forwarding is slow and buggy to the point that I use vnc on my unix servers and vnc is awful.
