Considering that Toronto is more diverse than New York, they've got plenty of demographics to deal with.
Youtube has the most eyeballs by far, and many "influencers" use it to discover new acts. This makes Google's policy an "Abuse of Dominance".
I think the Swedish Saab Gripen fits the bill nicely. In a cost effective manner to boot.
Brazil went with them, partly out of reaction to the Snowden revelations, but I think the decision stands on the merits of the plane as well.
A NATO response would not necessarily be confined to the Arctic theater. All of Russia would be a target.
The Kremlin is well aware of this - they don't make their moves based on Hollywood plot ideas.
And now that once great FCC is being run by the former head of the cable industry's lobbying arm.
Politeness and restraint will not get you anywhere when you are up against big corporations.
Shame on you for believing the simplistic islamaphobic narrative......The jihadists have not got Islam right with their selective theology.
You're supporting their claim to the ownership of the religion...funny how hate can collaborate across enemy lines. The hundreds of millions of devout Muslims living peaceful lives - who are you to say that their faith practice is inauthentic?
Every theological argument that the jihadists have used from the Quran and Sunnah to justify mass murder can and has been refuted with the same sources. Religion is what you make it.
"managed to absorb 4.6 kilowatts of energy"......per what? The number is meaningless without a unit of time.
or how about the SF anti-gentrification movement that seems to be targeting tech workers?
Difference is the static typing here is "opt-in". I think that helps. "If you like your current type practices you can keep them".
>>There is a 57.67% cost of living difference between here and the west coast. What people see is that we offer $40K starting where as the coast will offer $63K. Yet, they are the same amount as far as cost of living goes.
How is that rationalization working out for you?
In countries like Rwanda, Pakistan and India it rules the roost. I'm sure many others too. The Internet is bigger than than U.S millenials. Their strategy of being on so many platforms (iOS,Android, Blackberry, Nokia Symbian, J2ME for dumb phones) really helped with the "network effect".
And don't underestimate the international angle. It's a globalized world, many people have contacts across borders, and they want to use their phones to talk.
For those talking about free SMS being a replacement, the killer user story here is the persistent group chats, with seamless picture sharing.
Frictionless signup (it just uses your phone number and automagically fills in your contacts) certainly helped too.
The behind the scenes story is that they extended XMPP to make it mobile friendly with proprietary customizations. I'd like to see a similar effort with the open standard itself. Then I'd like to see a mobile XMPP client open source project that makes quality execution on all platforms a priority. The Internet is being balkanized and the fight for standards based mobile messaging is the new battlefield.
Good thing we have you to refute those damn scientists.
As a long time Opera on Linux user, the "pivot" the company has taken towards Webkit and a dysfunctional UI is like "being held down and watching your family get raped on a beach"
Yet another attack by the family courts on the ability of adults to make contracts amongst themselves.
This will be great for offline/remote/low speed situations. Imagine being on a merchant ship or even a cruise ship with a pricey connection package. Scientific expeditions etc.
How about preloading it on OLPC?
What if your high school kid can't do his homework without getting distracted online, but says he needs Wikipedia for research. Bam, here's your air-gapped PC son.
