In fact, they are expanding it -- they are putting in a brand new data center on the site that was the former Counterpane Security, on LaAvenida across from their SV HQ, and they also have leased a huge building a couple of blocks away on Pear Street. There's also rumors that they're behind the demolishing of an entire block of tilt-ups between LaAvenida and Pear to be replaced by six-story office buildings. In any event Microsoft isn't leaving the Silicon Valley, just Microsoft Research is leaving -- all fifty employees. Every single one of them who can have a job tomorrow by walking down the street to the Googleplex. Not a single one of whom have ever created a product for Microsoft, because Microsoft doesn't create products anymore, they just re-invent other people's products (or their own previously-good products), badly.
Plenty of cheaper (and probably better) options from Makerbot etc.
Now it it came is at a $400 price point it would be a whole different discussion.
You're not their target market. There are a lot of old-school tinkerers who are familiar with Dremel - and a lot of people who are familiar with Home Depot - who know nothing about 3D printing. Many of those folks would be very interested in 3D printing if they knew about it. So here we are.
I think Dremel is going to raise the stature of 3D printing in an entirely new market and that will quite frankly help every other company out there in this space.
Hm. The covenant of Noah is about two paragraphs before this part (King James Version) which is used for various justifications of slavery and discrimination against all sorts of people because they are said to bear the Curse of Ham. If folks wanted to use the Bible to justify anything ISIS says is justified by God's words in the Koran, they could easily do so.
18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.
19 These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread.
20 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.
24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
26 And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
I'm guided by the experience of the airlines. While you must, obviously, have the right sort of pilot's license, they also want a four year university degree. Not because it necessarily enhances your flying, but because it shows you can learn and accomplish things. If you can learn and accomplish things, and know your way around computers, I'd love to talk to you.
The big problem at most places I've worked is getting promising resumes past HR people who only count buzzwords.
I've followed Minix development with interest. The internal architecture is different from most OSs out there. Not different for the sake of being different, but different to show different solutions to problems. The way we do things in Linux et al is powerful, but it's not the only way.
I haven't come up with a compelling reason to use it in my work (yet...
The real question is "how well do normal humans perform the same task?"
If the worst thing that happened to me today was falling in a hole; I'd call that a great day.
The point of the experiment was that "falling in a hole" was equated to "death".
People are conflating the "iMessage & Facetime" part of the quote with the "email" part. He says that they cannot (that is to say "do not have the ability") to read iMessage & Facetime. He then states that they do not read your email. People are pulling the "cannot" along with them when they read that sentence, but it doesn't say that they cannot read email, only that they choose to not read your email.
Your description of the iMessage encryption is good, but what the original poster said was true given a few constraints. So let me restate it in a logically consistent manner: if I can read my icloud email on any browser then apple also has the ability to read it.
But, but, maybe they encrypt it using your password on their server! If they did, "change password" would always require the old password and if you forgot your password your email would be lost forever. So, no, they're not doing that.
The bottom line is that if they can show me my email in any browser (which they can) then they can also read it trivially.
This isn't inconsistent with Cook's statement - he merely says that they choose to not do that.
The real question is "how well do normal humans perform the same task?" My guess is "no better than the robot". Making those decisions is difficult enough when you're not under time pressure. It can be very complex, too. Normally I'd want to save the younger of the two if I had to make the choice, but what if the "old guy" is "really important"? Or something like that.
He says "How retarded can you be that you believe anyone is burning freshly cut trees, anyway?"
Did you catch the word "anyone" in there? Right in the middle?
He's calling the guy above him retarded for believing that *anyone* would want to burn freshly cut trees, yet there definitely is talk of doing just that and it's easy to find with Google.
... Depends if your IP address is dynamic or not. In my case, all I have to do is reset the DSL modem/router and, presto ! New IP!
I am more concerned about the legality of it. Running a live exploit on their network may make some ISPs fidgety. Also not sure about the position of law enforcement agencies...
Look up the "clean hands doctrine". There's a reason that you don't see street gangs suing a drug supplier over a missing shipment....
They are 'green plants' because they clean the exhaust.
And no they don't burn biomass. How retarded can you be that you believe anyone is burning freshly cut trees, anyway?
The real question is "How retarded can you be that you make a statement like that without researching reality first?"
"First, just like fossil fuels, when trees are burned in power plants, the carbon they have accumulated is released into the atmosphere. However, because freshly cut wood is nearly half water by weight, a lot of energy is required to boil off this water before useful energy can be generated. This makes biomass facilities far less efficient than fossil fuel."
They're even using your exact nomenclature.
Yes, the idea has been out there for awhile - that you haven't heard of it isn't surprising. But that you make an ass of yourself over it says a lot about you.
