Why aren't aircraft covered in them? 10% is a big difference in the aviation industry.
The claimed 0-60 time for a Tesla S is 4.2 seconds, which compares better or at least favourably with many supercars. The Roadster was even better at 3.7 seconds.
Max speed is electronically limited at around 125/130mph,
Similar the apocryphal Bill Gates quote, I could say that no one would want to go faster, but having experienced 165mph on roads, I know different....
It depends on how bad your vision is.
If it is 20/400 as mine was, after 18 years my vision is still clear tho I'm probably down to 20/40 from 20/20. I don't wear glasses or contacts and haven't since the operation.
I was unable to scuba dive, down hill ski, play racquet ball, and playing ultimate frisbee was impossible when the humidity was high.
When I went to the ocean- I had to leave my glasses on the beach so everything was a blur.
I experimented with disposable contacts and they were fair.
Lasik cost me $500 ($250 per eye) and it took 32 seconds and 39 seconds for my left and right eyes.
If it is dry and I don't drink enough water my eyes will turn fuzzy until I rehydrate. Eyedrops usually fix it instantly but sometimes not.
The surgery gave me a tremendous amount of freedom.
I refer you to the answer I gave earlier
I second that "best money I ever spent" (well there was this night in a Hilton Hotel that came close...) opinion. I was -10.25/-9.75 and spent lots of money on high quality glass lenses and contact lenses, both of which I hated.
Unfortunately my halo effect (in low light conditions) has never disappeared, but that's a minor inconvenience.
I needed some artificial tear solution occasionally for about a year afterward, but compared to the agravation of contact lens solutions and the area of irritated skin on my nose caused by glasses this was a minor inconvenience. I can read and focus on distant objects more than 15 years after the operation.
I had mine done around 2000, and at -10.25/-9.75 was on the limits of what could be achieved back then. The cost did mean I didn't have to wear glasses, so represented good value for money. My eyes do have a faint ghost image in low light conditions, which means whilst I can drive at night, I do have to make sure I'm alert. As I'm now 50, I'm investigating whether I can have a second minor correction.
Some avian packets will be flash fried.
We are in trouble when it buys Airborne and Water transport.
Did YOU look at the graph? The bars are comparing all of 2013 against the first half of 2014 (obviously, as the second half is in the future). So the fact that IE already matched last year's record is where the 100% figure comes from - it's another way to say "doubled". Unless the second half of 2014 has a lower exploit rate then the conclusion will be correct.
I love how pretty much every country has come to the same conclusion: We can bypass our own laws if we have someone else do it for us.
There's nothing surprising in this. Most countries hire consultants and advisors from the same international legal/accounting firms, who themselves have been trained in the same schools of thought, and often the same universities. The international ascendancy is mostly a mono-culture.
a trend underscored by a progressively shorter time to first patch for its past two releases
Is time to first patch really a bad thing? It really means that vulnabilities were found, and that they were fixed quickly. As opposed to vulnerabilities found and not fixed quickly. I suppose it's worse than "no vulnerabilities found" but even if none are found, it doesn't mean they don't exist. Fixing things quickly is about the best thing you can do. It also goes on to say in the report
Both IE exploits released in 2014 (CVE -2014-1776, CVE-2014-0322) used Flash to build the ROP chain and launch shellcode
Which really leads me to believe that the numbers really did go from 1 to 2, and that the exploits were more due to flash than they were to specific functionality in IE. MS was able to work around the bug by stopping it at the first step, but looks like the exploit isn't possible without Flash.
