not to mention the fact that a lot of this research was paid for by the tax payer. This is knowledge that Canadian citizens have a right to access
On windows, your default player is Windows Media Player. It is cumbersome to use, doesn't support a wide array of formats, and it's full of content advertisement. So I install Foobar and VLC for a better experience. Or I can use XMplay for music if I want a media player that has style. My current XMplay install looks just like the old classic Winamp which is awesome.
On Gnome, your default player is Rhythmbox. Its shoutcast support, just sucks. It's never clear if its buffering, or timing out, or what. I hate it. I have not found a suitable alternative yet, but haven't tried very hard either.
On KDE, your default player is Amarok. I don't really know it well as I've only recently moved all my linux desktops onto KDE so can't comment.
Just from memory:
Montreal Metro is driven by autopiloting with someone in the cab for door management.
Vancouver Skyline doesn't even have a driver anywhere, it's all automated.
Several airports (Orlando was the last one I went to), have automated trains/monorails to shuffle people between terminals.
Most flights you take are done almost entirely on autopilot.
So far, it seems that mass transit is increasingly automated. So why is non-mass transit any different?
What about PHP?
I do, it's "hehe"
because it was kinda funny
What's really awesome though, is being at the pub and having to set the clock back an hour while drinkiing!
like Windows vista?
In what way is the iPad "middle-of-the-road" hardware?
What tablets on the market now exist that greatly exceed the ipad in the highend spectrum?
I don't have a degree. It may be a little harder to get your foot in the door, but I've been career programmer for over 10 years now, and in those ten years I went from measly IT support droid to leading an R&D team in a major multinational.
At this point in my career, there is no point in putting education or certificates on my resume. The work experience speaks for itself. The only limitation I have now are countries that insist on a degree in order to immigrate there under some kind of "valued worker" type of program. I can't qualify for H1-B for example. But hey, why would I give up Canada to goto the US anyways?
What is the difference between injecting code into a machine to make it do what you want, and injecting an idea into a human to make the human do what you want.
The JVM or the language?
so will this result in a theocratic christian government run by the bible belt?
I'm not sure I ever felt discussing, though since I'm discussing it, I guess... I am discussed.
How on earth is this even remotely an improvement?
