Demonstrating the power of Symbian to ruin anything it touches.
I'm pretty sure I've seen Android frontends for a while now.
Yeah, I go out places, I'm more about reading the book than wandering around in the store; in fact I love my paper white Kindle for the convenience it provides. When I want to look at books I go to a used book store like Powells or a public library. Much more interesting. As the cute Asian girls say, "up to you".
So they shot up all their ammo to calculate something they already knew, and when the zombies came they were out of ammo. Are we sure this is clever?
That's reasonable, if that's what you enjoy. If I'm near a really great bookstore for some reason I love to browse too, but they are increasingly rare, and living near Powells Books in Portland, Oregon for a while really raised that bar for me. So yeah, it's seldom worth my ever shrinking free time to do. But it depends on how much time one has and how much joy it brings one, I can see that.
I have money to spend and little time, but I'm not sure how I would save myself time by driving to a bookstore when the mailroom guys will drop it by my desk tomorrow, and all I have to do is sign for it. I can't get to the stairwell in the time it takes to sign for a book. Maybe you drive faster.

Actually it was a form of Roman military discipline in which 1 in 10 were killed, not a reduction of 9 out of 10. The name is derived from the Latin for "removal of a tenth".
So technically the film isn't out and out wrong on this point (they can choose any point as center) although it may and seems likely is wrong on other details. The artists in question should thus probably sue themselves or their PR people for not finding this out via some minimal research.
Is your small talk recorded and can people review it at any time? If so I recommend a new job.
Well it's really all relative isn't it? I mean, defining the center some other arbitrary place probably makes the math simpler but really all the bits are robiting each other and choosing any one as a set reference is just arbitrary, right?
The folks at Trion have converted Rift to a fair and decent F2P game IMO. I played when it was not free, and was worried about the change but it's not pay to win, and it's still decent quality. Paying can make "the grind" less grindy but those with more time and less money can still be competitive.
I could see the protection in having my "official interactions" recorded, and I can get behind that in theory too, but I'd still hesitate to give a complete thumbs up to the "you have to wear a wire continuously" level of intrusion. It really seems excessive. Perhaps if there were assurances that legal barriers existed on who/how the data could be accessed then it would be a lot more palatable.
Every retail employee on the planet has to wear a wire and have every second of their conversations recorded and stored during their working hours? Citation really needed for that one.
I agree people cope with it; do you think it's good thing and people should just cope with it?
