Or just supporting libraries in general. Also, does anyone think it's a little odd that they want to provide $250 million worth of something that could be copied an infinite number of times?
The headline here should read "People WITH Schizophrenia". Because even though they have a significant mental illness they are still people and not one dimensional characters. Also, I somehow doubt you'll get a bunch of people with paranoia going along with this.
Yeah, if these people are that concerned with having their picture taken, they should be willing to give up any cameras. They might complain when they have to give up a cell phone, but it's the most practical approach.
I think they want to keep the passengers from taking pictures of one another.
Some people do spend a lot of time using mobile devices for a whole lot of reasons. In the amount of time it takes them to build some sparkly app for one platform, they could have just built a decent website.
Or they could just build a better mobile site...
I don't work in tech, but I do work with people who have mental illness. Being consistent with your medication and other treatment is something that is so important, but is easy to slip please up on. I would encourage you to speak to your treatment provider about developing a relapse prevention program. This would ideally include a fair amount of stress management. I would also encourage you to have an honest discussion with your family and treatment providers about how to handle the situation if you do have a relapse of symptoms, and write it all down in a mental health advance directive (this ensures your wishes are carried out if you are temporarily unable to make good decisions for yourself). If remembering pills is a problem for you, a long acting injectable might be an option. There are some good products that only require a monthly injection. They are pretty expensive, but there is help getting co-pays covered. It's also a chance to check I regularly with your treatment provider to discuss any problems you have. All of that said, it sounds like you know yourself pretty well and know what you need. I have confidence you can handle whatever situation comes up!
I make it a point to get up and visit people in other areas once or twice a day. Just a quick 2-3 minute conversation goes a long way. I also make it a point to regularly find small ways to be helpful to other people. This builds relationships that go a long way toward getting things done, and making the work day a little bit nicer.

I agree. I've gotten tornado warnings and flash flood warnings on my phone that I probably wouldn't have gotten as quickly otherwise. I love that it's based on my location so I don't get alerts for an area I'm not in, and miss alerts for the area I'm currently in. I also like that it forces me to acknowledge the message. A simple text message isn't enough to wake me up in the middle of the night, but I like that this will wake me up if there's a tornado warning. I like to think of it as a weather radio built into my phone.
I still read Time because a friend gives me a gift subscription every time she renews hers. I also still read the Sunday paper.
It's still my favorite word processor.
The down side is that company now knows where they can get high quality work for 1/5 the cost.
