As the years have gone by, I've done less and less of my work outside of Emacs
Is emacs recommended for netbooks and underpowered systems?
Where is the Slashdot poll on this topic?
Why would you want one? probably the CowboyNeal option would win anyway.
If price is the only hurdle, then Apple will be fine. Your line of $100 is someone else's line at $350.
But I'm not sure I'd bother wearing it after the first few days even if it was given to me. That is a bigger problem than "too expensive".
It's too early to dismiss it's usefullness, I think that's a technology that might have something to show. The only thing that makes me not consider them in this generation besides the price tag is that they look really goofy, and the only one that doesn't look like a child's toy (motorola 360) has a really bad battery life ( 1 day tops). Probably on the coming years we'll start seeing new useful things to do with these ( as well as usability and looks improvements), and they will end up redefining the concept of watches as it happened with cellphones.
: "support for great economic liberalization, privatization, free trade, open markets, deregulation, and reductions in government spending in order to enhance the role of the private sector in the economy."
I fail to see if I actually misused the term or if you just meant to elaborate more on my answer.
The parent AC here is oversimplifying the matter, even though I won't defend our politicians since they'd make blush the most corrupt of US senators. As of standards of living, we are way far (still) from being like an african country, but we are on our way to civil crisis and socioeconomical failure. Crime has gone up, welfare subsidies are not enough to maintain poor families, workers are going on strike, and the currency is devaluating by the minute.
Most of latest measures taken by the government are futile attempts to slow down a crisis that they almost averted ( during Duhalde and then Nestor Kirchner period), but then accelerated again during CFK government, skyrocketing government expending on ridiculous attempts to buy the poor people's will, among them there are, the increase of welfare subsidies to a point where jobs became non-competitive, buying rights for most ( if not all) sports events ( your usual pay-per-view match is watchable in Full-HD air TV here), and fundings to ghost factories (which is one of the many ways they get the money in their pockets).
The reason is pretty much clear, CFK government was plagued by political unstability, her own party splitted and they had to find a way to buy the will of the people and become a contemporary Evita. Most of the supporters of nestor kirchner left her, many with the hopes of finding their own way to the presidential chair ( such as trucker's union leader Moyano), still her party controls the majority of the senate and they even attempted to make the judges of the supreme court eligible via the means of common vote ( in an attempt to complete their control of the three government's powers).
The current government is basically riding a bull on a glass shop, and they don't really care about anything but to stay on top.
As an open source fanatic, freemasonry has always rubbed me a little the wrong way
Would you like him better if he was an OpenMason?
