That's your prerogative of course, but it's so easy, and a lot of fun, to cook simple, tasty, healthy meals.
A good case could be made for electing them to Congress.
They would be overqualified.
I wonder if that was long enough to produce lush gardens with apple trees.
That's silly. Everyone knows that happened only 6,000 years ago!
Twice the cores and twice the RAM for less money seems pretty damn cost effective to me.
Who said anything about cheap? I certainly didn't. I wouldn't recommend one of the cheap ones really, but something like a Nexus, Kindle Fire, or Asus Transformer makes a great tablet and is far more cost effective than an iPad. A man in his 70's is probably less likely to care about the only real reason to spend money on an iOS device, which is having the new shiny so one can look cool like the other kids in class.
Sure, an iPad, if the OP wants to spend twice the money that he has to. A decent Android tablet using large fonts or even a replacement launcher would be perfect.
I expect other nations to do the same, just like I expect the other team to try to score against mine. I'd be a hypocrite otherwise. Are you?
Just being a non-US citizen doesn't make a person a foreign power. Spying on the governments of other countries, fine. Spying on the citizens of other countries is just as bad as spying on US citizens.
No, it's not. It's their job to spy. I have no problem with it. Who do you think the actors are in countries foreign to the US that our intelligence agencies are interested it? They are citizens of said foreign powers.
Bank of America is always looking for new ways to screw over their "customers", be it through fees, lying, or trying to steal their (paid off) houses through foreclosure (and blaming it on "computer error" when caught). They're probably drooling like hungry dogs over all the ways they can fleece people with Bitcoin...
I'm afraid that Bank of America is not the ONLY bank which screws their customers.
In fact, I have yet to find a bank which has failed to screw their customers.
I've never seen USAA do it. I'll be a customer for life. From their insurance products to their banking and my mortgage they've always acted with nothing but the highest standards of customer service.
It's a bit ironic that the summary mentions having strong passwords when it was a keylogger to blame. It wouldn't matter how strong the passwords are in that case.
And of course it'll get posted again as if it were a new story.
I find that my Asus Transformer Prime 201 is just fine for the majority of tasks, and it works with my USB serial cable. Yes, I can console into firewalls, routers, switches, etc. with my tablet, and the fact that I have the optional keyboard dock makes it all the nicer.
Upgrading the OS would be wise as well, especially since we're fast coming to the point of end of support, April 8th 2014. Windows 7 and 8.x both improved security considerable, and there are other more secure options as well such as MacOS X and the other varies flavors of *nix such as Linux distributions.
Just because two notable names have made a big deal about it doesn't mean there aren't still plenty of such positions. Asking someone to uproot their entire lives and move across the country to benefit you with their extensive knowledge and experience for work that absolutely does not require your on-site and on-hands presence far exceeds "flexibility".
Sorry, no it doesn't exceed 'flexibility'. Sometimes one just has to go where the work is. Despite your assertion the trend is and has been for some time moving away from telecommuting. It's not just 'two notable names' say so. It's a real trend in many industries. Requiring to work remotely will seriously curtail the number of opportunities a job seeker can find.
You might find this interesting. It compares several versions of BSD with Linux.
