It had side windows and a periscope. Lindbergh would bank to look at things out the side windows. None of the above had failure modes anything like a video camera on a wire. Your point?
Barbuda is not Barbados.
Gattaca. A combination of Gattaca and Idiocracy is pretty much the future.
I believe my first computer "magazine" was a photocopied zine for Apple computers from back in the 70s. I think I bought my last computer magazine in about 2000. The web killed the market for such things long ago.
Sheesh, sell off a bunch of low vote, or non-voting shares.
There was a big whine fest about the Google share split of the C, non voting, but everyone forgets that nobody can buy B class stock (10 votes per share).
Companies do it all the time, and some investors are okay being silent partners if they think the management is good.
I'm quite aware of that, which is why the automotive industry is so specific about how everything gets done, and tested.
Really the number of assembly or manufacturing defects in automotive is astonishingly small. A lot of that is all that "overhead" like having a control plan for every single component. The amount of background work to do anything in automotive is really mindboggling.
As opposed to the US assembled vehicles made with those same Chinese parts?
Better not buy any car, since all the automakers and Tier 1's source from China.
The main problem is that computer education fails to teach the basics - the simple lessons about input and output. Then, isolates the student so far from the hardware atop multiple layers of software cruft that you'll never get an idea how the real machine works.
I took an undergrad Computer Architecture class which was very nice. Had an excellent, simplistic virtual machine environment (MARIE) with a very short list of opcodes. By the time you were done with that, you should understand the things we understood back in the 70s and 80s working on Z-80 CP/M boxes or 8088s (or 6502s...). We should teach that class at the High School level.
Surprise surprise, left wing ideologues hate self-reliance. News at 11.
Why don't you just get the correct license or insurance.
When I upgraded my car to allow light business use, it only cost a few dollars a year more.
Well, making shitty phones - either because the OS sucks (Windows Phone) or the hardware is flaky (HTC - the one HTC phone I owned was not particularly good) doesn't make it extremely likely that people are going to buy your phones.
A well thought out procedure would be good.
However someone will figure out a way to exploit it anyway.
It will be so cumbersome as to be unusable, and people won't use it.
Apparently some potentially violent situations are reported by single calls. Being seen to ignore such a call is very "costly" (in Public opinion, potentially lives), whereas kicking in some innocent guys door is still seen as mostly forgivable by the public.
The Russians thought this way during WWI and WW2. So did the Chinese during the Korean War. They suffered casualty rates that ran to 10:1. Human steamroller tactics produce a lot of bodies but not a lot of results.
