well that exactly is the joke that windows mobile 6.5 is more full flavored operating system than windows 8 rt or windows phone 7/8.

so you have all the scamware and nothing "must have" in the appstores. heck, they initially tried to tell that you'll need to use the appstore to download 8.1 update for x86 windows 8. but guess what? you'd be a real voodoo man if you could dodge all the prompts to install the 8.1 update that get shoved to your face!!

if your privatized swat team only responds with full combat gear then that is the only hammer you have and being privatized you need to make the local cop areas use your services too.

militarization of american police is on going and is about money mostly. not about being outgunned or shit like that - and also about the short training needed to be a copper in the USA and the shit ass stupid attitudes like "you shoot only to kill!" that are not standard in other western countries..

sure, if you don't equate commercial transport license to "Taxi medallion more costly than the car itself".

Which is fairly common.

and really, the places where it's like that is where the taxis are lobbying for banning uber. it would be rather easy to check out available uber taxis and check if they have license or not and smack them with the appropriate fines if not. but if you want to protect your roaming or taxi pole mafia, then you need to ban the whole concept.

I'm pretty sure they throttle even if you use it from the device itself... it's been in the fine prints of everything.

it's not really news that unlimited in USA means "yo this is limited more than some small countrys 3g was in 2004".

if there was any control of the advertising then they shouldn't be calling it unlimited hsdpa or whatever unless you could actually max out the advertised connection speed for at least a day. now you'll hit the limits in mere hours or even under a hour.. which is silly.

The one astronaut was also the leader of the space program.

so what? I mean, if the program consisted of anything else than just begging a ride for one person to ISS from Russia/USA/EU then the leader calling it quits would have not had any affect at all.

but if the program consisted just of training her and her using 25 million dollars for a ticket to the ISS then sure, if she calls it quits then the program is at end - and she already went to the ISS so the program was a smashing success.

doing a rocket of their own would need a fair bit more of cash and an actual space program.

Now, the entire South Korean space program it seems consisted of just paying Russia 20 mil to deliver a bio engineer into ISS and back - and she's been in business school for the past 4 years it seems. ...but, why would you even call that a space program? just to piss on north korea?

this is the first I hear of the option being available.

point being, back in the p5 days, you would hear the switch possibility pretty late.. and I'm fairly sure the local pc magazines didn't cover the replacement possibility either, not even in the articles discussing the problem and showing how to find out if you had the fault or not.
