Not a hugely useful comment... Yes of course it isn't bricking every unit, but if it's causing such a serious problem on even 1%, this is a fuck up.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
faster cellular networks aren't all that interesting. It will take forever for them to be deployed, and
Now give me an 802.11ZZZ or something that can do just 20Mb/s or so at 10 miles NLOS with non-directional antennas, and you've got something useful.
And, by necessity of physics, massively wasteful of rf frequency. Not sure why you need this, also?
It means that in order for Reddit to be competitive in hiring, they will need to make a first offer (the fixed salary+benefits) that is at or above the market average. As a jobseeker, I can just look at what they have to offer and take it or leave it. No haggling. No drama. That sounds good to me! I'm decent at negotiating, but I don't enjoy it.
For jobs where negotiating skill is NOT part of the job, the negotiation ban should make hiring decisions better correlate with merit. And generally, I want to be surrounded with people hired for relevant merits, and not just good self-promoters.
Bingo. The only way they can keep competitive is to offer decent salaries *on their own*. I'm fairly good at negotiating, but only after many years and I'd really rather not have to.
Yes and no. The 'new' generation (for any given time) is never as clever or inventive as they think they are, but they generally *are* a little bit inventive and have some level of new perspective to bring. Maybe believing that you're God's gift to knowledge is the fiction we need for progress...
Your posts are a rare moment of intelligent empathy in a thoroughly depressing set of
By lumping 50% of the entire population into one group and blanket accusing them of the same thing, it's rather difficult to take anything you write seriously at all. It just comes over as angry backlash, and no better than the cliched "all men are bastards" call of the recently dumped.
Who is talking about sexual assault? If you give someone consent to take a video of you having sex then you need to beware, you just gave up some of your privacy rights.
I salute your flexibility in bending over backwards to blame the victim. Most people would know the difference between a private recording made between two people and the intentional broadcasting of that material with the intention to harm.
As to wheel chairs needing that rise, if they do they're poorly designed.
Given you've never designed or had to use a wheelchair, your assertion is not very convincing. Making a wheelchair that can go up steep gradients is going to have lots of knock-on effects to the design like weight, size, cost, and since you can't push yourself up such gradients with your arms for any length of time it would be a waste anyway.
I told you, I'd be happy to carry you into the store myself. I'd be happy to push your wheel chair up my ramp. No need for anyone else. I would do it gladly.
Let's assume for a second that you really are that nice (hard to do based on other things you have said, but OK). Do you think it is important for a person to be able to live with dignity? What dignity could there be in a life where you have to ask someone to *carry* you every time you go into a shop... multiple times per day. You would have to find a fine nice person like you to go out of their way *every* time an obstacle is encountered, which in your world would be pretty often.
Isn't that revenue though? Loss of revenue doesn't really count since if you're not making the programme anymore then you won't be spending it, so profit is the thing they will lose.
Good point about screwing with the delivery, though I would assume that the BBC is big enough and has a solid enough reputation that this would be a 'blip' rather than a noticable loss of confidence.
No I am pretty sure they make more money off Top Gear being a worldwide success then they do off the British TV tax.
You're "pretty sure" are you? You know these sort of mindless random thoughts stated as fact is pretty fucking harmful.
Top Gear worth per year, about £50million
Licence fee collected last year, £3726million
Get a grip.
I think we'll see renewed calls for a remote override capability built into airliners, so the ground can take over the plane when pilots become non-responsive or the plane begins to rapidly descend.
Well won't that would be fun when the hackers focus their attention on their new remote-control planes.
Only reason I can think to stick with your stock firmware is that you have to (not available for phone, on a CDMA network where you need to update with a proprietary software item that doesn't work on third party firmwares). I have seven unlock options on my GS3 and prefer to use the "None" option.
Well off the top of my head I could add 'stock tends to be more reliable' and 'it's faff / risk of bricking your phone to replace the firmware'...
Why do you assume it was the US intelligence agencies that made the decision to make this threat?
It's rather splitting hairs to quibble whether the intelligence agencies or higher up the government chain made the threat...
You assume that the German government didn't ask the USA for this letter to justify something they wanted to do anyways...
You're really reaching for an explanation that absolves the US there...
Apple had the most profitable quarter ever recently and is the most profitable company in the world. How do you do that without heavy markup?
You don't get highly profitable by adding a huge markup. Instead, you have to do two things: First, make production of your product as efficient as possible so that production cost plus markup isn't too high. Second, create a product that is so good that people buy it instead of competing products, even at the higher cost.
Congratulations, you have just defined "markup"!
