I find it notable that there is no mention of miracast anywhere in the GoGo description. Isn't this what Miracast is supposed to deliver?
People don't want to turn off traction control to do a burnout, they also probably want to slide around corners.
How is that different from your doctor saying "You most likely have Leukemia." All diagnosis and advice is based on a probability scale. If you have an 88% chance of developing cancer that's almost as good as saying you have cancer.
the MARKET will put them out of business as consumers will a) stop using them and b) competitors who provide better service will emerge.
Just like the MARKET will put all of those herbal supplements, homeopathic water solutions and penis enlargers out of business?
This might be a bit of a waste though. With 802.11AC offering 320mbps and probably gigE+ speeds in the next gen it kind of starts calling into question whether wired networks are even necessary.
FTTN and then enough bandwidth to blanket a block in 2gbps wifi w/ 10ms pings would be fine by me and save a small fortune.
I think the big deal that we never want to admit is that the success of a project usually isn't from the community. We like to think we're the critical component when in reality most of the important work is being done by the benevolent overlord.
Sure we could fork Android for instance... but it wouldn't advance very quickly and it would be garbage compared to the Google helmed branch.
Movies though get sold for TV all the time. You could say that people who go to an ad supported website to download a film are the same people who demonstrably would watch an ad to see the film for free on TNT etc.
It's ongoing and it's also inaccurate to say "Microsoft's Customers" since it implies that these guys have a mailing list that they're using. I know a couple people who have gotten the call and they only have Macs. They're just moving from country to country and randomly calling anyone who will listen. I'm sure there are variations on the scam that adjust for specificity vs scope. For instance if I call and say I'm from Dell technical support and you're a Dell customer you're more likely to feel like it's true since they called you and knew you had a dell "how else would they know!". I'm actually pretty surprised that someone hasn't gone "all the way" and crafted the script to be like
"Hi, you called dell Technical Support a couple weeks ago and I'm following up to say that it appears that we didn't correctly resolve your issue."
The odds of getting someone who did call support in the last couple of weeks are low, but if you hit someone who did your chances of them believing you are very high.
It's a waste of their time to rule on a law which is in the process of changing. For instance they wouldn't have wasted their time on the Obamacare decision if congress was likely to make significant amendments and/or appeal it.
The judicial branch is like government QA. If a new build is about to drop, it's a waste of time to do a big bug push.
You start in the federal court of someone whose information was wrongfully collected. Which is apparently just about anybody.
They will judge whether the government infringed their rights and whoever loses will appeal to a higher court. When that higher court rules it'll get passed up to the next appeal court. As long as a higher court is willing to hear the case it'll keep getting appealed until the SCOTUS lets the ruling stand or hears the case.
No, like all smart businessmen they donated $1,000 to Obama, $2,500 to some republican running for the senate and another $1,000 for Romney.
That sounds more useful than any of these "weapons" created by this guy. I was looking forward to some innovative solutions but the only one that looks at all menacing is the fraggacino. And even that I presume is just an exploding axe body spray.
Almost all of them had so many ways to go wrong that they're a failure waiting to happen. Just buy some duty free vodka and make a molotov if you want a weapon. Hell, buy two and you have a stabby knife.
Or here's a crazy idea, don't waste buying and assembling your weapon in a bathroom where someone might get concerned at the sound of a blow torch in the stall next door and smoke coming out and just tweak the firmware on your laptop. Boom! Lots of fire!
the Israelis do it MUCH better
Actually the Israelis are responsible for this failure. They claimed that they could train their screeners to 'detect' suspicious behavior without machines, just reading faces. What this study revealed was that what the Israelis claimed was best was no better than chance.
If you say:
I hypothesize that temperature is changing and I say. "Sources of Error: I cannot measure the arctic reliably."
And then say "It's getting warmer on the long trend, but on the short term, the noise results in no warming trend." You've fulfilled your study.
If you then have a follow up study and you say "I filled the gaps in my data and my hypothesis was further confirmed and even the short term change was warming." You're still following empiricism.
It would be like dropping a ball and a feather and saying "Hmm, my theory that objects would fall at the same rate appears to be wrong. Source of error: Different amounts of air resistance."
Rerun the test: "Eliminating a potential source of error changed my result."
TWiTfan: HE CHANGED THE CONDITIONS TO PROVE HIS THEORY!
Of course you change the conditions. You identify sources of error and then hopefully in the future can eliminate them with closer study for more accurate results. that *IS* empiricism.
You only need to drink like 1oz of wine to get those benefits. You might as well just take a tablespoon of booze and get the best of both worlds.
