Maybe the patent office will notice a bit of prior art? One can hope, right?
I'd argue otherwise. Oracle submitted a boatload of bugs (performance & otherwise) to Redhat to make Oracle products run better. Redhat ignored most of them. Oracle forked red-hat & rolled their own. Isn't that the benefit of open source?
I used to own an '84 Chevy DIESEL Chevette, and it could get up to 65 to merge onto the interstate. (assuming no headwind) Having 200+ hp in a family sedan is overkill.
No. I speak as someone with a MS in CS, so I may be a little biased, but saying CS should just be Math & Engineering is much like saying Physics is just applied math, or chemistry is applied physics. While one is built on the other, there are basic tenets taught in CompSci that would never come directly out of Engineering or Math. While there is a lot of overlap, subjects such as Data Structures or Autonoma Theory (off the top of my head) are VERY different than anything that would be thought of as engineering or math. Core concepts such as these affect the very way that CS majors view the world. It is a different level than just applied math & engineering.
Given Teller's persona on stage, I'm really trying hard not to make a Non-Disclosure Agreement joke....
or better yet, can I get
I've seen something like this before... Oh yeah, during the vietnam war....
So how long to someone makes a browser plugin that searches google for thousands of random words, thus making google's data mining worthless?
As a vendor, I will attest to this. I have 'fallen on the sword' more than once for employees to save face.
From looking at the pictures, assuming the gentleman next to the car is 6 ft tall, then the doors don't go much past 7 to 7 1/2 feet. Tall, but not unworkable.
CSB: A pub I used to frequent had live entertainment in the form of a man on stage with a guitar singing various bawdy pub songs. A bunch of us were in one night when we convinced our friend ( a wonderful indian grad student who knew no fear) to get on stage and sing 'Margaritaville'. He didn'tt know the song, but the entertainer said he would feed him the lines as they came along just before along, like a human karaoke machine. So he get's up there and sings. The singer feeds him the line 'stepped on a pop-top' and he sings it as 'stepped on a pop tart' because he had never heard of a pop top.
I still can't sing it the original way, I like pop-tart better.
But either way you look at it we lose.
I hate to see it, but the Repuplican party is becoming more and more polarized, and that's not good for the country as a whole.
Yeah, they should have skipped a Monday. Or even a Wednesday
Or like Law enforcement putting a tracking device on your vehicle and asking for it back when you go public with it.
The quote from Jobs pretty much sums it up well.
"When you're young, you look at television and think, There's a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down. But when you get a little older, you realize that's not true. The networks are in business to give people exactly what they want. That's a far more depressing thought. Conspiracy is optimistic! You can shoot the bastards! We can have a revolution! But the networks are really in business to give people what they want. It's the truth." - Steve Jobs, Interview in WIRED magazine (February 1996)
