You could fly from San Francisco (SFO) to Orlando (MCO) That's a pretty big search radius, if this story is true.
That doesn't bother me.
What bothers me is that Google is constantly changing things and if you don't like it, tough.
Right, because who needs to pass a law requiring a gun registry when we can just ask the NSA for a list on demand?
Oh, wait, maybe this is a BAD thing.
You gun nutjobs would probably be a lot more successful at making your case if you could string together at least 140 characters that make sense. Right now, people like you are actively keeping the phrase "gun nutjob" alive, and you're turning off people like me who actually support your position. I know it's asking a lot of someone with a room temperature IQ, but could you at least try to think before you click "post"?
go home Sean Young, you're drunk
Silly you, after mergers things downsize
and then executives cut themselves big bonuses
In other words: Welcome to the grind fest, where if it doesn't consume your entire life then you lose.
Or, by losing you win, but feel you didn't win, so keep trying and keep losing, until you are good enough to win and thus lose.
Even the adherents of the basic principles themselves seem to stop short of explaining why they work. "Here, this is duplicate code. You should follow the DRY principle and get rid of it." "Why?" "Because it's a principle."
They should let the new kid do some sink-or-swim maintenance on code that doesn't follow the principles. You want to learn about DRY, try changing one branch of duplicated code without realizing there was a cut-and-paste copy elsewhere in the code base. Now you've gone from a solid bug to an intermittent bug, and your clients are still yelling at you. Thus beginneth the lesson.
These useless apps are worth nothing.
They're certainly not "worth nothing." They're worth whatever a vulture capitalist is willing to fund, or whatever an IPO will bring in. Those people still have the ability to turn punching purple monkeys into a pile of quick cash. The few technologists who time their insider stock-option trades correctly will get rich, but almost everyone else will get pink slips and a hard slap of reality.
Everybody out there imagines they'll be the one who lucks into a lucrative stock market trade, just as every gold miner imagines he'll be the one to strike the motherlode. I wish them all luck, but that's all I'll give them. I'm still not dropping $0.99 on a fart app.
You could afford a 1541?
Most of us couldn't, cost more than the computer itself!
I upgraded to an Indus GT. =]

Sounds complicated. Just burn them and their customers with excessive taxes.
And use those taxes to put the miners on welfare.
But in America, if it has value, it can be seized.
If it has value it can be embezzled.
I'll get me coat.
No chance I'd go for this, not in a pig's eye. When will they talk about rolling out reasonably priced plans?
A fascinating study I read revealed hand-outs to the poorest people put that money into motion in the economy fastest - the poor don't save, they are usually living hand to mouth and can think of things they need to spend the money on.
Giving it to the rich doesn't result in quick infusions into the economy because they tend to sit on it, squirrel it away, not so much save or invest.
Yet we often hear how cutting taxes on the rich will boost the economy - nothing could be worse, to be frank.
