Haha, funny. I grew up in Romania and fried chicken blood was one of my favorite treats.
Selling is not part of the mission? You forget to get lawmaker approval you have to generally play to the lowest common denominator.
Those people are mostly in their positions because they were able to sell themselves without actually having any skills.
Yeah, but Ferrari doesn't make cars for Nascar circuits. Try flooring it on a very windy road.
I wonder if any street-safe ferrari could make you pass out from the G forces in the future.
This awful system would turn all any situation where someone would be cut off due to a blind spot into a sure accident.
They labeled it horse meat and sold it as such. The UK importers decided to mix it with beef.
You forgot transportation! They have a bus getting them to their housing! And it runs on schedule!
If xerox transforms it to 68, they owe you one!
Detroit is not a state, it's a city which managed to shoo all its manufacturing jobs away. Now Massachusetts is going to shoo all jobs away to India.
I had a iPhone 4 which was decent, and thought that it did everything I would ever want. Then I updated the iOS and switched providers, at which point I could not unlock it so I had to get a new device, and chose the S4 over the iPhone 5 which has an outdated OS interface, charges an arm and a leg for memory upgrade (64 GB is not worth 300$ EVER), has no SD card slot, doesn't allow for the battery to be flipped so that I don't have to worry about running out of battery and no charger available nearby, has only "family friendly" apps, has an outdated camera, a narrow awkward screen, doesn't allow me to copy files over the network, text input on the keyboard has to be done by continuously clicking, requires iTunes, and I can't play videos on it unless I get them from apple or use some bloated annoying software on my PC to convert for it.
the iPhone size is awful. Can't read books on it easily. My S3 and S4 perform that function beautifully. Scrolling through pages with the thumb is a lot nicer than having to hold a tablet and mimic an actual book.
I don't really have a problem with seeing ads but I'd pay something to not have ads on my content which others see.
10 dollars a month is a lot though and a lot more than it's really worth. pandora is 40 a year and they actually provide content, and don't get the content for free like Facebook does.
Linux is free and with the right people, it's very well supported. The problem is that in corporations, executives always prefer maintaining another corporation's monolithic power structure than to pay people what they're worth.
How effective are these horrible intrusions? The Boston bombers were known terrorists and communicated about their actions internationally, yet no one even attempted to approach them and prevent the murders in the least bit.
Can't they just use the access they have and keep the country safe before asking for more access without disclosing their true motivation? Obtaining a warrant for someone on an international watch list who is out to blow themselves up can't really be that hard. Cops get warrants all the time based on how dogs shake their tails.
On my recent trip to Belize I noticed the first thing while landing that there were random small fires everywhere. The place across the hotel from where we stayed had a fire one day in their yard for hours making a lot of smoke. The fire department came with their engine to put it out because it apparently had gotten a little out of control.
I asked a local what was up with all the fires and he said it's due to spontaneous combustion from the "heat" but I know exactly what it is, people burning their trash!
As for the jungle house, one of his houses was right by river where you take the boat to Lamanai. Not sure if it's that one that burned down but there is a lot of tourist traffic around it and the guides were joking that it's half off. I guess it's just land cost now...
"Of course, the colleges have been turning out software drones by the thousands"
lol. That's like saying that Van Gogh was a "paint and canvas drone". Remember, just because an institution teaches a skill, the skill can be applied creatively or not.
Most "high tech" software I see these days is unimaginative and based on pointless corporate executive drone direction (ITIL,
Some of the best software I see these days comes from Israel. In the US people are mostly busy band-aiding low quality code that comes from "low cost" regions.
Unfortunately the truth over the past few years has been that the majority of corporations have lost their way in creating cool new products and the name of the game has become reducing cost by replacing people with contracts sold by people with an army of unmotivated drones who need to be given direction every step of the way. (paying for hands instead of brains)
