Tire pressure is a safety and emissions issue. A big safety issue. Where I'm at, Ontario, any MIL code is a fail, any code. http://www.thecarconnection.com/news/1076372_tire-pressure-at-fault-in-5-percent-of-accidents-study (note in the last section, bad weather effect amplified by poorly infalted tires) http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2012/05/14/study-finds-low-pressure-factor-in-many-crashes/ http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/maintain.shtml And of course, proper inflation gives the best mileage. This applies to *any* vehicle. A slow leak in the mountains is no fun. Even in the city, a slow tire leak can ruin your day. That's the point of your sensor, avoiding the hell of changing your tire on the side of the highway.
Actually, I was referring to tablet centric design in general, metro, unity as well as gnome 3. It's all geared to a touch screen. I do not use a touch screen all the time or even the majority of the time. Programming, or even writing an email. GIVE ME MY KEYBOARD! I need BUTTONS to type fast. I have a couple devices that do have a touch screen. And for those devices, great. The touch is nice, gestures, good stuff. But they exist to get around the basic problem of one finger touching the screen, or two. But at some point, you can not have as many combinations as my mouse with three buttons and a VERY HANDY scroll wheel. Nevermind a keyboard. Which is fine, when you realize that you not going to do everything you do on a desktop on a tablet. *Yes*, technically you can write two page emails, or even this long winded reply on an iPhone. But it is not the easiest way to do it. It is not even a close call. When I am on my 22" desktop. Gesturing with my mouse, or parsing through comical sized icons is *not* my preferred method. Swiping to unlock on a 4.5" screen. Okay, what ever, but @ 1900x1200. ef off! In this area, MS at least stepped back and said. Whoa! Did a bit of a head shake and rolled back. While GNOME (who I was really targeting, not MS, but I understand the sensitivity) decides, even given the the facts of recent history go the other way. It seems that their philosophy is, if you can't make a touch analog, dump it. So I feel they have turned their backs on people like me, people who use a desktop. We don't count. I remember when GNOME started, how it extended the GTK, I loved it. Now it's yet another touch screen OS. Not that I long for the early does, not at all, GNOME 2 was great much better than the first GNOME release. (Too bad they didn't fork it). That said, because of Gnome 3 and Unity I was forced to look around again. I hadn't experimented with window managers for a long time, not since the dot com crash!
What happens when it goes through the dryer? Or left in a car in 50*C?
One day while driving on the highway I saw a lost old lady was using her phone to find her exit. She was doing 2/3rds the limit in the middle lane with her signal light on. Frustrated people in their cars wiping by her on left AND right. I dropped my stuff off, returned on the highway going back the other way. The side I saw the old lady on, a big pile up crash and line up for miles and miles! One confused idiot. 1000s suffer. How many were late that day, how much money did people lose? She had no right to use her phone. Having missed more than one red light because some @sshole sits at a green light fucking around with their phone . . . Always seems to be at the big lights too that take 5 to 10 minutes to cycle. To put it another way. Given the huge anti drunk driving movement. Which are you better off with behind the wheel, a driver after two beers or a texting addict? Not to diminish drunk driving, but at least the drunk driver is trying to pay ATTENTION TO THE ROAD! So in my mind, texting is worse than drunk driving. I mean how hard is it to pull of the road, do what you need and then drive again. So good for you copper, I'm sure you prevented accidents and helped people get to work on time. Which is after all the point of us being in our cars. To get to point B, in one piece.
If I have them and I want to use them, that's my call! Worst cause use the menu, Edit -> Copy, Edit->Paste O wait, are those going next!?!
I second that!!!! I'm ready to switch back to TWM if I have to!
That's why I switched to XFCE when GNOME 3 was released. I know what I'm doing thank you! Lowest common denominator design will lead to a low quality production.
"In fact, I would expect that if we got into a (patent) dispute with Cisco and we conducted discovery, what they would tell us is that you'd have to go talk to our customers if you want to find out how their networks are configured because we can't tell you." - See more at: http://www.networkworld.com/community/blog/cisco-can%E2%80%99t-shield-customers-patent-suits-court-affirms#sthash.BD5PFArh.dpuf So, if the customers are "configuring" the equipment in an infringing way . . . In essence, the appeals court agreed with a lower court's acceptance of TR Labs' contention that its patent infringement claims are rightfully against the users of telecommunications equipment - be it gear made by Cisco, Juniper, Ciena or others - and not the manufacturers - See more at: http://www.networkworld.com/community/blog/cisco-can%E2%80%99t-shield-customers-patent-suits-court-affirms#sthash.BD5PFArh.dpuf So anyone could have been in the courtroom? It was just luck that it was Cisco?
Next study out, giving kids sugar *DOES* make them hyper!
The irony, switching such low density areas to clusters is where the most delivery time and money savings will be found.
An anonymous reader writes "Dr. Steve O'Shea of Auckland, New Zealand is attempting to break the record for keeping deep sea squid alive in captivity, with the goal of being able to raise a giant squid one day. Right now, he's raising the broad squid, sepioteuthis australis, from egg masses found in seaweed. This is a lot harder than it sounds, because the squid he's studying grow rapidly and eat only live prey, making it hard for them to keep the squid from becoming prey themselves. If his research works out, you might one day be able to visit an aquarium and see giant squid."
