If you are paying them to make you the guinea pig, you are an exceedingly stupid guinea pig.
Get unlimited dataplan (Includes roaming, very important)
Get free WiFi hotspot so laptop uses phone for access.
With roaming I am rarely out of someone's network, so long as I am near some level of civilization.
Wrong! Not very helpful, and totally in the spirit of Ass Slashdot!
Trump announces that he will reverse the renaming if he gets elected
Hillary says it will be renamed to Mt. Edmund Hillary.
Hell, a president can change anything to anything with a stroke of a bureaucrats pen these days.
Are you suggesting we should wage war on people that don't want the maps to change?
Yeah that is what an AWACS is for... oh, sorry am I jamming the entire wireless/cellular frequency at the same time and your twitter is toast?
Unless said scooter and Ferrari are IN TRAFFIC.
All tools are superior in their intended use cases.
The a-10 gun aims DOWN 2 degrees, so to shoot another aircraft it must be intentionally mis-aligned with the target.
That same angle makes sure the A-10 can strafe without diving directly at the ground... which is why 0 angle deflection aircraft like fighters are lousy at ground strafing targets.
Refitting tech packs is not like swapping a graphics card and "voila". The systems are highly integrated and cannot be replaced piecemeal like newer aircraft.
What they need is a tech pack that makes F35 "voila" it is an A-10.
My father's opinion, and he was a military aircraft mechanic for 35 years, from the A6 to the B2, is that the problem with A-10, F16 and F18 is not is that they are obsolete, it is that the standard mechanic cannot work on them effectively.
As he put it, after so many field repairs and variations, you cannot go to the book and read how to fix it like you can the B2 and other more recent aircraft. B2s can be fixed by going to the bin and getting the part or subsystem and replacing it. Very modular. Every repair has tools, parts and a timecard for repair time associated with it. Follow the instructions and you will be able to disassemble to get the part, replace the part, reassemble and test the part to ensure it is working correctly.
Older aircraft are much more oddball. It no longer looks like the factory spec. Parts have to be fabricated because they are no longer made. Hydraulic lines need to be bent because they don't route the same after taking damage and being repaired in the field.
Now, there are arguments pro and con for having well trained and flexible mechanics that understand how the aircraft operates and can repair it, and there is pro and con for having a weapon system where individual skill is less important and repairs can be done quicker. (providing spares are on hand)
Yes, using technology to commit a crime is now now as bad as using a gun.
Based on the "scary technology == scary technology" transference of properties.
I think Romans invented massive debt...
see where it got them?
Federal Bureau of Investigation take away?
They are not FEMA, or any relief organization, they investigate crimes. Of course they found something that would make it easier for them to investigate, damn our rights in the process.
Didn't anyone watch Minority Report?
IBM has had the "Consulting by Degree" program for years. Takes newly graduated students and gets them up to speed for a consulting career in IBM:
