And since Android app crash rates are actually lower than iOS
You're wrong, unless you can provide equally large-scale, cross-platform metrics. Compare the iOS 8 (most popular iOS version with about 85% usage share) crash rates (most recently 2.05%) with KitKat 4.4 (60% share) at 2.53% crash rate.
That's because it doesn't affect most people
It only doesn't effect those that don't give a shit about their rights. Which is most Americans that only care about their ability to buy an SUV and pay rent.
Besides, in relative terms it isn't too bad.
Sure -- enslavement by a cabal of Corporate and Government fascism beats death and imprisonment. But not by much.
The bars might be "invisible" but they are still there.
There are some "how it's made" shows that shouldn't be watched.
Those shows should be watched and shown as part of grade school curriculum. It's important for people to know what they are eating and to know what their alternatives are besides going to buy Factory Farmed Meats at Supermarkets. Even buying a joint of meat at Safeway comes with so much crap that it's not much better than processed.
Until people start caring about the quality of their foods, we will continue on this race to the bottom -- the Average American already eats on par with a pig anyway with all the processed crap made from fillers and byproducts. All that's needed is for Americans to ditch table dining for a troft.
when attempting to understand something pathetic and useless
Actually, I found it rather interesting to consider -- given that African Americans are so fond of shouting oppression. Yet they seem to have flourished here rather well, with plenty of opportunity to advance in society, have many elected officials and business leaders and finally, even a President.
Just because you don't like a statement that may be made inappropriately does not mean it's completely without merit.
- NodeJS -- learn to work with Express, and package your code into reusable/distributable NPMs. As a bonus check out Socket.io
- MongoDB -- knowledge of and practical experience with at least one NoSQL DB is a must for todays web developer
- Bootstrap -- Responsive UIs are a necessity for Web UIs and knowledge of at least one Response CSS Framework is a standard requirement
- Backbone -- Working knowledge of at least one JS based MVC Framework is also needed , Backbone might be a good place to start given your knowledge of jQuery, ReactJS is another more recent JS framework that can work with jQuery. Angular is also quite popular, but not based on jQuery and takes some doing to integrate jQuery plugins
- Bower -- not a requirement -- Package/Dependency Manager that works like NPM but for JS/CSS UI dependencies, a good thing to have working knowledge of as you'll most likely use this in any production level JS UI development pipeline
- Yeoman/Grunt/Slurp -- not a requirement -- CLI Tooling to aid in building/packaging/testing/task running --a feature common to production level JS UI development pipeline
- Phonegap -- not a requirement, but helpful to be aware of how to take an HTML5/JS UI and turn it into a Native App for iOS and Android
Anyway -- that's the basics of where to go if you'd like to leverage your existing knowledge of jQuery into something marketable. Express for NodeJS is also a good primer for Ruby on Rails as it is a "rails-like" framework with NPMs being similar to Gems
Why do you assume that your IDE has features that Emacs doesn't? It's been in active development for 39 years to be a great, productive programming environment. Do you honestly believe that it's had 4 decades of worldwide contribution and not become reasonably good at helping people write software?
Without exception, everyone I've heard decry Emacs and Vim as "just text editors" has never used them beyond "open file / type / save" and has no idea what they were working with. It's like dismissing Linux because you've only used it as an AWS shell, and you feel sorry for people who won't upgrade to Windows so that they can use a web browser.
Oregon can sign up to drive with devices that collect data on how much they have driven and where.
Surprisingly -- no one is making a stink about the State TRACKING THEIR MOVEMENTS.
I guess people just accept surveillance now -- just let the Gov't track and monitor them like good little inmates should.
This should not be allowed -- you want to increase monies to pay for road work? Instead of tracking everyone's movements, hike up Vehicle Registration fees to offset the loss you perceive from the switch to Hybrid -- or increase the tax you charge for electricity.
