Yeah, but Apple isn't making a tablet w/ an active stylus. I prefer to write over typing mostly, and I have to have a stylus which will allow drawing, sketching and annotation. Probably my next machine will be an Axiotron Modbook.
Yeah, things went so well the last time Apple licensed its OS.
That said, I would like to see Apple license Mac OS X _for non-competing machines_ in form-factors which Apple doesn't manufacture. I'd buy an Apple Tablet Mac if it were more reasonably priced than Axiotron's Modbook.
Erdogan has turned a blind eye to ISIS fighters and weapons using his country as a transit point into Syria
Yes, what people actually live on that border? Oh golly, the Kurds.
The rest of your post is a case of 'the lady doth protest too much'. It's the usual PVV/Front National/Vlaams Belang/BNP apologia, so fuck off and die in a fire please, you racist shit.
Utter fucking bullshit. Turkey has always had a problem with the Kurds, it's a nationalism issue. Erdogan is as much a Turkish nationalist as the army that used to make noises about him better not getting out of line. But hey, why would you interest yourself in what actually motivates those brown people over there, as long as you can play on the Islamophobia to give your bigotry the semblance of respect?
Replying to undo incorrect Redundant moderation.
In the Great SF Novel that I think about writing, I figure I'll put a few hundred feet of water ice at the front end of the ship to absorb those.
Are you being sarcastic, or have you never heard of Arthur C. Clarke's "Songs of Distant Earth"?
one reader that can read content on any of the dozen sites that he or she might be interested in.
Isn't that called a 'Web browser'?
But, but, but...I thought The Great ESR had made maintenance of WML easier so that campaign maintenance was less of an issue?
The other option is that those who think they are above average negotiators settle for less than the job is worth to the employer because they are just bad negotiators. Salary transparency is a benchmark that obviates that issue. Collective bargaining is another one.
The Globe and Mail's angle is quite a bit different: How Uber is ending the dirty dealings behind Toronto's cab business
"Windows 10 will launch in less than a week"
If it won't launch in less than a day, I would say scrap the whole idea.
Why bring up the 'cultural' issue when it is a mere question of locality? Because you're a goddamn bigot who thinks Indians are inferior brown people, but you just lack the stones to say it outright. Your posting history is illumnating.
Cultural and time-gaps are a killer
Aka "Those brown guys are too stupid to understand what us 'mericans want".
Funny, as someone not living in the United States, when I get to deal with US-made software, apparently that cultural gap was of no consequence whatsoever, I'm just supposed to suck up the Americanisms and don't complain.
In short, if you ignore the culture gap when the software is written by WASPs, then you can't call on the culture gap when Indians are to be the prospective programmers. If you do, it smells suspiciously like you have other motives, something more essentialist.
No, just no. If you keep holding the brakes while being rear-ended, you will not accelerate until the collision energy overcomes the brake friction. It's not a matter of accelerate then brake, it's a matter of not accelerating at all, and letting the brakes and the crumple zones take up the energy.
Last time I was in the UK is several years ago, so conditions may have worsened, but I was impressed at some things, like how people were much more willing to let me merge than at home (the Netherlands; bloody awful drivers, the lot of 'em). Roundabout etiquette especially struck me, with me probably being the cause of plenty of 'bloody foreigner' exclamations, as I was rather hesitant at times in quickly merging and leaving.
I did notice some drivers not paying enough attention, but not significantly more than normal. And that was with me trying hard to adjust to riding on the left, on a fully loaded motorcycle, with luggage and my partner riding pillion.
