When you hover your mouse over the map it says "oil"
> Mine does not. I have no facebook apps what so ever.
Ditto. But if you are the type of person that uses facebook and would like to access it on your phone you are type of person who already has a smartphone and does just that, therefore there is one to sell this device too.
Especially if it is not on the market long enough for many of those people to finish the contract on their current phone
Except in Idaho where you are NOT allowed to do that even if you wish
Or online where you don't know the tax until they buy it. Many places vary tax by address...even zip code,etc is NOT enough info
Wouldn't be half as bad if WHAT was taxed made some sort of sense but again every state excepts different things. Took me days to kludge the 'taxable' flag in a system to handle just 2 states into working correctly. To do this nationally I would imagine even fairly big companies will need to pay for a tax table type add-on to handle the thousands of tax codes and then i still don't see how they can implement it on the correct products. Does your computer system have 50 (ok, more like 45 or something) flags for 'TAXABLE' ??
Not sure that says much about the power system.
The plane appears to be very close to a sailplane. Drop the weight a bit and i think it would run on watch batteries and thermals.
17 feet is a lot of wing for 40ish pounds of airplane.
hmm, can we make a powered glider that can find a big thermal and reverse the circuit to recharge a battery in a dive?
Can't tell the diference here....
Outage didn't affect us...as far as i know...
We were down due to local problems at the same time but the line next door worked.....until they fixed this line then the other went down...sigh. Somehow fixing and rebooting my line down the street killed the modem for next door...whatever.
Generally been fine up until this year when they alternate breaking the dialtone and internet (never both,wtf) each month. 5 service calls this year between 2 accounts...not impressed.
I think we all understand the difference in population density and how that affects the cost to provide infrastructure services. That plays a big part in how places in Japan can offer better price and performance than places in the US.
So what's the excuse in NY, SF, Chicago, Boston and other high density cities that have a population density greater than Tokyo? If Google can wire up low-density Kansas City and Austin, why can't the telcos figure out how to make money wiring up a neighborhood full of high density apartment buildings?
They can, they did, and they do.
Why would they spend more to get what is likely the same amount of profit?
9 times out of 10 your choices are 'fast' cable or slower DSL. If people want fast they are probably already a customer. If they came and changed all the connections to 1,2, or 10 Gbps how much more would they make? Pretty sure the answer is 'not enough.'
Sadly DSL seems to be stagnent (or worse) so no push from competition, if they even want to BE competition
Just another Me Too.....
I have a decent i7 now with Win7 for DX10 games and a Q6600 i think it is for my other gaming rig.
This office computer is the older gaming rig with the fakey Dual Core in it that was replaced by the Q6600 years ago.
Others are still P4 space heaters with WinXP and Office 2003.
Only problem i had reusing these old ones was running out of DDR memory. They were bought during one of the memory price fixing deals i think and were very wimpy to begin with
Short of hardcore games and a few special apps haven't needed anything past a P4 (HT required tho to run antivirus decently, so above 2.5GHz or so). We only bought those because non-HT ones wouldn't run the terminal emulator and AV good enough...which was a bit of a shocker to need 3GHz for a fricking dumb terminal emulator!
lol, RCT3 with my favorite park still brings the i7 to it's knees 3 computers later tho
Sounds like a wet dream for wireless companies.
I wonder how much data one would need to push back and forth. Look it up on Facebook, Look it up on Google Earth. Upload a pic of soup and a system somewhere does the comparison? Sounds expensive and who's system do you trust. Download soup info and have your phone figure it out...Sounds worse.
Sounds like a way to blast thru data caps in record time !
No ideas here tho, i don't even need a smartphone yet (til i hook up the security cameras, then being able to check on them seems useful)
It was gettting to be Soooooo much work to press a button to answer or decide to do nothing to get it into voicemail....
I am sure the occasional error from this will be much less stressful than having to choose to press a button or not
whatever, I still use my vintage (that is correct for a 4 year old cell phone, right? not antique til next year..) flip phone. Got a good laugh yesterday when our salesman got a call on my line and said it sounds so much better than his smartphone!
And none of the above note the fact that there is more to the battery than JUST those alum plates. How much is the other plates in there? The electrolyte? The water? Something to hold them together and a box to contain it all? Maybe even some hardware to enable those swaps?
But copy A would be the copy in the temporary cache. If Copy B != Copy A then the copy it (iTunes, etc) put in my music folder is not the one i bought....
I don't think i got the copy i paid for and their downloader deleted my 'original' copy!
So none of us would actually have legit files according to that
So even though no one will ever be able to use the land again you are ok with it?
- you clearly think that a land owner is incapable of doing his own cost benefit analysis. There are lands that are not going to be mined on, they are very good for agriculture. There are lands that will have miners on them, there are resources there that will be mined one way or another.
By only allowing people to do business on their own private property we get rid of the externalities, which means of the ability to socialise costs. Once a person owns the land, it's his. If it's not, then we don't have rights. By buying and destroying a piece of property the owner makes a calculation that it will be more profitable to do that rather than to maintain that property. If he is right, then he allowed the economy to get the maximum effective output from that property at that time.
Yes, if a person buys and "destroys" a piece of property, he should have the right to do that, he paid for it.
Somebody will have to hold those nuclear barrels. Somebody will own that property at any time, it's not like once the owner disappears there is no other owner.
Stop paying taxes....
So you plan on eliminating property taxes...I'll forget to pay the excise taxes on what i take out.
Let me guess you don't plan on having those taxes either.
I'll just dump my barrels on your land when you take a vacation, or maybe put your name on em and dump em elsewhere. You don't mind using your resources to prove it was me. Even then so what..i have no money (accessable to YOU) I do have a piece of land you could take................
LOL, like they said it isn't worth it as a rule. You needed 22k miles per year to make it work which is waaaay past average.
shesh guys, if your gonna jump all over his figures at least grab the low hanging fruit
Also agree the 22mpg seems a little low. Unless one drives at least TWICE as much as average i have never seen these calc work. Gonna need a good value for the hippie chick factor i fear.....
hehe, back in the day my locker partner and I both joined one of those music clubs and made sure we didn't duplicate any choices both for the intial stuff and the required 3 purchases. They aren't such a bad deal under the right conditions
PS, most of those cassettes lasted longer than much of our digital stuff will
At the rate we are going the pirates will have become shoplifters to minimize risk
Is this even possible? I don't see anything that one needs to use the right pinky for except possibly
Swap the 'P' with something, perhaps 'Z' ?
Shift your home keys over one? If you're learning new layouts anyways, this seems easier.
There is only one letter involved, swap 'P' with ',' and there are none. Not sure how you can avoid it more changing all the other letters around.
Besides, whatever works for you. Not like i used more than 4-5 fingers to type this. Like someone else above my hands move more than my fingers.
Starting to wonder about Ask Slashdot myself....
