Well, for one thing, this discussion is more useful to many of us (who may be in a similar situation) if the comments are kept general. The moment the product is identified, the comments will naturally drift towards issues specific to that situation.
Better to mount them on ceiling as that way your feet don't get so hot.
BALR *,13 to you, sir.
surely it was
PS: I blame this to be the start of the enormous overuse of #define in subsequent decades, as most people thought it was cool to equate R15 to 15 (etcetera) and then write the above as
leading to the endless nested equating we get in modern C and C++.
PPS: for the worst such mess ever created, does anyone else remember the COBOL "ALTER" command?
Using a text editor to write code for a device like an iOS device, that simply displays the weather or a stock price is so
Well -- 1970's maybe. 1960's were more about drum storage and all that. Even in the early '70s, the 029 keypunches didn't let us correct typos -- you had to hold the "dup" key down to duplicate the bit you got right, and then carry on keying from where the mistake started. The 129's were much better, as they only punched the card after you finished the whole line.
Although come to think of it, I did write a nice simple weather app in 360/Assembler for a class in 1974.
Well it turns out that recording audio from within the car may be considered a felony in some states that require notice and consent to individuals that they are being recorded and now GM is sending notices out to dealerships and customers alerting them to this fact as well as promising a future update to the PDR system."

Hello fellow pedant.
You have to extend the planes into the plane of the camera view.
When the front and back planes are extended it is entirely possible for the camera view plane to be perpendicular to both. In fact, it would be impossible for it to be perpendicular to only one since you pointed out that the front and back planes are parallel.
True. Mea culpa.
What I was objecting to was something else, implied in parent post, to the effect that the lens axis lay on the both the front and back planes of the phone at the same time. But I expressed it poorly.
It can't be at right angles to both the front and the back of the phone -- they are parallel, non-coincident planes.
Every discussion I've read on this issue ignores the fact that there could be passengers in the car, and there's no reason to disable their phones. Very much the opposite, in fact, because they can be looking up addresses, getting directions, etc.
if the trip starts at Junior's high school, and mom and dad's phones are at work, the driver has been identified — Junior is driving.
What if all three phones are in the car? Which one does it disable then?
The Canadian government began searching for Franklin’s ships in 2008 as part of a strategy to assert Canada’s sovereignty over the Northwest Passage, which has recently become accessible to shipping because of melting Arctic ice. Expedition sonar images from the waters of Victoria Strait, just off King William Island, clearly show the wreckage of a ship on the ocean floor.
Actually IIRC '+' was used for string concatenation in the version of PC-BASIC included in the firmware of all the original (1980) IBM PCs. But apparently it wasn't in the original (1973) Wang 2200 BASIC that at least some of us first learned BASIC on.
See the third example here: http://www.wang2200.org/basic_...
I was trying to look up some of my earlier languages (WATFIV and IITRAN in my case), but I can't find any detailed documentation on the web.

According to TFA, there are several different sections. The statement about depending on science was from a portion designed to clarify prevailing attitudes towards science in general. It was separate from the part evaluating scientific literacy.
[The report] contains the results of a new public survey that assesses Canadians’ science attitudes, engagement, and knowledge. The report reviews data on Canadians’ science skills and the current peer-reviewed literature on science culture. It also features an inventory and analysis of the organizations and programs that support and promote science culture in Canada, particularly among youth.
However, it turns out the survey was commissioned by a number of Canadian agencies. It was performed internationally, but a Canadian report saying Canada is number one in science is at best somewhat suspect.
Also the only Vost, as far as I can see...
