"reasonably well", which translates to "OK, as long as the files are simple and you don't care what they look like"

Clearly the Times is doing all the work.....
>>Economists have worked out that the cost of regulations in the US drives the median income down from $113K to $42K
wow..... "citation needed", as they say in wiki-land
just to be clear, a 3-way does not involve your mythical girl bringing 3 of her friends....
PS-this is not a zero based arithmetic problem; it also doesn't involve your mythical girl bringing 2 of her friends
Tortured sentence structure anyone? Or are they really are landfilling babies at the experimental mushroom farm???
Not that we ever expected much from the editors at
EFF is doing great work, send them some money!
wow... must have struck a never someplace... my trivial comment has been modded 8 times.
but I'd like to go on record as joining the beta sucks bandwagon
Nice analogy... if you want a real world example of this happening, consider the storage facilities for fine wine in Manhattan-- flooded during hurricane Sandy
For (largely unexplained) reasons the storage facilities still won't allow the customers access to (or even look at) the wine they're supposedly storing...
parent is a moron.....
yes, the marginal cost of adding another connection to a pipe that's already buried in the street is (as you state) fairly low.
On the other hand, digging up (and repaving) a couple miles of street to install the pipe in the first place is fantastically expensive.
OK, they're off by a few months, but my first reaction to the headline was definitely "clearly, this is a joke...."
It's mass production when the resources required for development and testing are much smaller than the sales.
For instance, reliability testing for something as complicated as a cell phone should require tens or even hundreds of units. Electrical testing, certifications, developer's units, demos, bench units, betas, it all adds up, and I'd be very surprised if the minimum number isn't in the hundreds. You can always scrimp on testing to save on development cost, but that tends to be a result in (severe) quality problems.
they might have a shot with 20k, but 200 is ridiculous.... it's closer to the sample size that one would use for for pre-production testing.
