After the succes of Tesla in Norway they fixed that by adding a heater around the battery that runs if it gets too cold for the battery. If you leave the car in the cold for months without charging it, it will drain, and the battery might need replacing.
Gasoline stations don't sell gasoline. The provide it as a service at near-zero margin as a way to lure you in for the high-margin food and sundries in their stores.
They'll find other ways to lure you in (like adding charging stations).
Hardly. The cheapest are still the ones without a store.
You would have to wait a long time. The first generations of self-driving cars will not be fully autonomous, and nowhere near what you are dreaming of
Why would you make an anti-tracking feature for a browser only made to track you? Whatever you do you are still being tracked by default, that is the point of Chrome.
Ever heard the phrase "Divided by a common language?"
In British English a member of "the government" is not a Bureaucrat with a public service-style salary, it's the Prime Minister and his Cabinet. Where they use "government" we'd use "Administration" (as in: the Obama Administration).
Actually it means the same in America. Americans are just reallhy of stupid and blame the government for everything even remotely public. You can see this very often for instance with Obama being blamed for the actions of republican Governors.
It's this before or after the EU collapses from its inherent fiscal contradictions?
Mu, that is not going to happen, and is not the case.
For those bot getting the "joke", GEMA is pretty much the German equivallent of the RIAA in the US.
They are notorious for geoblocking in Germany videos from youtube which contains content under their licensing rights... Even youtube channels from the artists themselves.
Actually they are notorious for Google blocking youtube videos claiming GEMA demanded it, even if they didn't.
I think you are confusing KDE with either GNOME or Unity. KDE is the desktop that allows you to configure it to work however you want it, the others are the ones that do not.
I wonder if a spreadsheet is really the right tool for computations that take several dozens of seconds on modern hardware, even without GPU acceleration. I am inclined to think it is not.
No, it isn't but many accountants and business controllers are using spreadsheets, some of them also learn SQL, but that isn't really all that much better for financial calculations (though better as a database which they also use spreadsheets for).
they would be forbidding people from taking their prescribed medication
No. They'd be forbidding people from taking part in the competition.
Probably depends on the drug. Several types of asthma medication is considered doping unless you have astma. If I remember correctly some 50% of professional bicycle riders officially have asthma.
Unless they invent a bullshit "disciplinary" reason for the firing in which case you are out your job and the termination allowance you thought you were entitled to. Are you a white male? Good luck fighting that one out with a lawyer...
That is why you have unions.
I was thinking it would be some ritalin based medicin, and adderall is particularly abused, and maybe shouldn't even be used the way it is. But this is important: It still requires a prescription to get, so in the end by banning it, they would be forbidding people from taking their prescribed medication. Even if it is widely abused, there are a some that needs it.
Even in cycling they allow drugs that are otherwise banned, if a doctor prescribes it and documents the athlete needs it.
Companies can fire anyone at any time. People can't simply hire themselves into any position at any time.
Sure, but if you are sane you negotiate a notice period, which means free money if they fire you on the spot.
