These business are local businesses which originally did not depend on Amazon. So what stops people from bypassing Amazon after locating the business?
These information are mostly available in the public domain already. So what's the big deal about the leak?
After NVIDIA's refusal to step up to the line and assume their financial responsibility for causing so many laptops to die of thermal stress in previous generations, I feel no empathy for them. I DO have empathy for the rest of the people in the supply line that are getting dicked over by your friend, just not NVIDIA.
Well, they are resolving the responsibility issue by stop you from overclocking...
And still a tremendous waste of money to placard those who fund NASA for emotional reasons, not scientific reasons.
What do you think is going to do more for NASA? The discovery/proof that Mars once was a planet with liquid water and perhaps even microbial life (which is HUGE from a scientific perspective), or two Good Ole American Boys planting the Stars & Stripes on the surface of the red planet, broadcast "live" on all major TV networks in the US and around the world? It is all about emotion: enthousiasm, national pride, and conquering that Final Frontier and leading the way. That's how it worked with Apollo.
Not to mention that they probably needed something to balance the probe anyway -- might as well use someone's ashes for symbolic purposes.
Probably not. GLONASS is a recent addition to the smartphones. It is space technology. They also want to use satellite to track the planes, rather than having to pick up the black boxes when bad things happen. I think people will interact with space technology more often. I think at least the interest in Earth-bound space technology will increase.
It really depends on which branch of STEM. Biology and chemistry are more balanced, but if you study Computer Science, good luck finding girls in your own department. I think works need to be done to make certain branches of STEM subjects to look cool.
I think most people on this website knows what BGP is, hence the acronym.
I think that particular (group) of employee is probably Korean. Based on the current flippant attitude of North Korea, it is the easiest to blame everything on North Korea, which is perceived as evil.
Using North Korea as a scapegoat was a perfect strategy for Sony. Blaming the attack on a nation state is way better than admitting its poor security practices. But North Korea has now denied the involvement, I wonder what they are going to do...
I moved to United Kingdom when I was 13. I was never taught cursive in school. I am doing fine. However I don't think it is a good idea to teach texting, because different kind of input method may come along and make texting obsolete, e.g. Swype.
Does this affect the rest of the world? Nope.
Let's move on, nothing to see here.
The program pretends that it is a "13-year-old boy". How often do you take advice from 13-year-old-boys? I assume that Slashdot is not rampant with teenagers.
I think the difference between Bush and Obama is that Bush wasn't hypocritical. Bush didn't tell everyone that he was going to make his government more open, whereas Obama did.
P.S. I would upvote you if I had mod points.
If you are from the US, please tell your senators to STOP BICKERING and get US back into space. Quite a lot of people outside the US feel this is not just about the US, it is about the humanity.
"The IBM Simon Personal Communicator, ca. 1993, the first touchscreen phone."
Touchscreen phone running Windows Mobile was quite common in Asian market before iPhone. It is true that they weren't as polished.
