Maybe C+ is a good enough achievement.
Everything would be a worthless paperweight, depending on the size and everyone would communicate face to face like before Alexander Bell.
All encryption is instantly breakable by anyone in under 30 seconds. Less if you have tattoos.
DHL Global Mail is slightly slower than me walking to wherever the shit is sent from, picking it up myself and walking back home again. 4 WEEKS to get something from Boston to Raleigh? Or maybe 12 days stuck somewhere in Georgia?
Incandescent bulbs are designed to be always on. When you turn them on is when they blow out. CFLs and LEDS are designed to be on and off. Too much heat build up from uninterrupted use will kill them. So '50,000' hrs isn't supposed to be 50,000 continuous hrs.
LEDs are FAR FAR more sensitive to bad manufacturing tolerances which is why cheaper, relatively speaking, units are such shit. On the other hand a quality unit from Cree is probably going to last as long as it should. I would also stay away from dim-able bulbs since they require more circuitry. Same with dim-able CFLs. The transformers are fragile enough as it is.
LEDs, while they are very bright for the energy they use, throw off fantastic amounts of heat given their overall power consumption. This is why large LEDs like floodlights actually look like radiators with their backing fins. Without them LED's would self destruct in minutes. This is relevant in a high hat or recessed lamp. Too much heat build up and they blow.
CFL's don't generate much heat but their transformers do. And it's the transformers that usually dies before the CFL tube. Again, a poorly made or mounted fixture will collect more heat and kill the bulb that much faster, maybe even start a fire.
MS, like Apple and Google, simply purchase the laws they need to operate and buy the courts they need to enforce them. Everyone knows that.
Time for an invasion
No, I don't but thanks for the snark. On you it's fucking cute.
Obama's views on nuclear weapons are shaped by the 'neo realists' of Dr Ken Waltz. And Waltz believed proliferation was a GOOD thing not a bad thing, that the MORE countries have atomic weapons the MORE stable the world is. Waltz, and his acolytes Walt and Mearscheimer have Obama's ear on this topic more than any other advisers. This is why Obama quietly doesn't really worry about Iran. He would like to see them acquire The Bomb.
To the 10 or 15% who are early adopters maybe. To everyone else, no. Doesn't matter never mattered never will. And for what it's worth most carriers tweak their images so much they eat up all performance variables with their shit code and bloatware. Moreover, if you're a Sprint customer, you don't have a network unless you're on WiFi, so performance is meaningless bullshit anyway.
Because America is not a country that hires Comp Sci PhD's. In fact it NEVER was.
They are air superiority fighters and as such carry air to air missiles or air to ground missiles typically against radar installations. F-22's don't have external hardpoints so there's nowhere to hang bombs from and the internal bays are specifically designed around the missiles they carry.
So that's a waste of effort.
