the article you linked says that $1b rules only the most "mature" proposals, but there are other options. so what was your point? if they can't execute the most expensive option, they shouldn't bother trying anything?
people can wear skirts all they like, and choose how much or little they want to expose of themselves in public. if you re concerned about some out of focus dark weird angle shot of your panties, i'd suggest not wearing a skirt.
or, people could get over it. if it bothers you, cover it up. we don't need anymore laws.
yeah those idiots at NASA that landed a buggy-sized nuclear powered rover on mars.
they have a pretty good track record. maybe they expect technology to improve to the point where costs will go down as the mission progresses? i tend to put more credence in what NASA has to say than you. nice analogy though.
Discover (verb): To be found by a white person
sigh. if a large part of the world doesn't know something exists, and a member that larger society finds that thing and tells the larger part of the world about it, they discovered it. it's a discovery to the society that didn't know about it.
yes, we all know people were living in america before it was visited by europeans. you didn't just drop some massive reality shaker on us. don't look for racism where it doesn't exist. that makes you the racist.
Since Europa seems one of the most likely worlds in the Solar System other than Earth where we have some hope of finding extant life
i think we already found life on earth.
I really have no idea what any of my colleagues earn (within salary bands), but I have no reason to think there is a difference. Certainly both make and female seem to be as happy with their packages.
just like your employer likes it. keeping wages a secret keeps everyone's wages down. in stead of paying people fairly according to their contributions, they can pay people what they can get away with. would you be happy w/ your compensation if you knew bob who doesn't show up until lunch time and takes off at 2pm every friday makes $30k more than you per year?
Flash's core problem is that it's used for advertisements in a busy-wait loop
right, the problem's with the code, not flash. you can put any system in a busy wait loop and watch it burn up the CPU.
Now multiply this by the 10 or so
if you put 10x animations on a website using any technology it's going to burn your CPU.
Now you can't even play a 10 year old flash file without losing frames.
flash video woks fine any modern mobile devices and all computers. it's still used by many large scale sites.
How do you measure market share? By units sold?
no, by the number of users.
Or by percentage of sales volume in dollars?
It's a massive battery
negative, at least on android, the flash process is nice and quiet and the browser is in the background / screen is off. maybe you are into leaving your phone screen locked on and showing a flash page. in that case, you are right.
the first notable thing is that Apple sells more than Samsung, Asus, Amazon, and Lenovo combined
OMFG you found the truth! seriously, TFA is about OS market share not manufacturer. so?
And can you say that these are truly Android tablets if they have some sort of modified android 2.3?
yes. what else would they be? and BTW, there are almost zero tablets that ever ran android 2.3, and android 3.x has almost no percent of the market according to the stats, so that means they are running 4.x.

unless you personally roasted the beans, it's not proper coffee.
unless you imported the beans direct from the grower in columbia, it's not proper coffee.
unless you personally grew the beans, it's not proper coffee.
unless the beans were grow by small family farms, it's not proper coffee.
unless the beans are "conflict free", it's not proper coffee.
unless you milked the cow that provided the cream for your coffee, it's not proper coffee.
unless you inseminated the cow that gave birth to the cow that provided the cream for your coffee, it's not proper coffee.
and so on.
it's all relative. don't judge people for being one step higher on the ladder than you.
Is it really so hard to just grind the beans and brew it yourself? I do this every morning.
is it really so hard to just keep chickens in your backyard and gather their eggs for breakfast? seriously, some people think your a lazy ass slacker for not doing so.
if I was at a bar with someone besides my wife
wait, are you saying that if you were out cheating on your wife, you'd beat up anyone around with GG? if your behavior requires you to assault innocent people, maybe you should alter your behavior?
