"Highly skilled" does not necessarily mean "highly in demand". Given that there are highly skilled Americans that can't find work, yes I will argue they're bad for America.
This hasn't been my experience. It's hard to find qualified people - they've all got decent jobs already. It's the unskilled workers that are struggling with unemployment (and underemployment).
The U.S. government issued notes of regret for the loss of human lives and in 1996 paid reparations to settle a suit brought in the International Court of Justice regarding the incident, but the United States never released an apology or acknowledgment of wrongdoing.
Didn't Apple go through this exact same issue with the iPhone app store a few years ago, and they fixed it?
"Read out says CTRL+v, boss."
"Don't be stupid! It has to be Shift!"
1. Unlatch side battery door.
2. Slide out weak battery.
3. Slide in fresh battery.
That's 30 seconds tops.
You realize that most electric cars have a substantial battery pack. If it was as simple as opening the hood and removing a simple battery, don't you think somebody would have thought of that before you?
Somebody did. Granted, it takes 3x that 30 seconds.
No - Twinkies, Ding-Dongs, Doritos, Anchovies
You forgot the funyuns and skittles.
Google's self-driving car only has to identify An Object and avoid it, on top of driving along a set course with GPS assistance. A killbot has to identify what The Object is, find out if it's a threat, then check if it's a friend or foe somehow, hopefully assess the possibilities of collateral damage and what war crimes it may be committing by attacking the target...what Google's self driving car can do is just the first step.
Nope. A killbot just has to identify An Object and kill it. You could make one of Google's self-driving cars into a killbot for pedestrians and bicyclists (and potentially motorcyclists) today, if you were sufficiently evil (or evil's cousin, incompetent). Good thing Google's motto is "don't be evil".
That's like going to Slashdot to read the articles. Sure, you COULD, but...
Your girlfriend or wife will say no, it's how you use it, but that's only a half truth.
Someone with a smaller striatum who knows how to use it is likely going to give more pleasure than someone with a large striatum who is clueless about how the female brain works, but women prefer someone with a large striatum who knows how to use it over either.
Of course, your striatum can be too large - and despite what you see in the movies, women do not like having their hippocampus jostled by some monster brainpart.
SGI's still around, of course, they have an office within walking distance of my house. Dunno what they do these days.
The company currently calling itself "SGI" was originally called "Rackable Systems" before they bought SGI's assets in 2009.
