No, its not ironic. One misplaced hyphen does not invalidate his point.
Consistency is easy when there is a single non-distributed database. That's not always possible and even if when it is possible its not always desirable because it is an inherent bottleneck. I agree many many companies pretend that they're facebook and end up with NoSQL for stupid reasons (hey, if my website ends up with a 100,000,000 active users then a single db won't cut it...) but there are situations where availability is more important than consistency. Funnily enough, one of them is banking.
> How could these not be important for banking is beyond me.
It's not that they're not important, its just that they are not the *most* important thing. Banks care about making money for themselves more than they care about anything else:

Yup, I'm getting 0.06813 mm per frame.
Pretty damn impressive, but then again, that thing apparently can only record 6 frames at a time, making the whole article misleading to the point of being complete bullshit.

Don't forget he also played my favorite character: Zathras.
This mission will put a new spotlight on Pluto and its âoedwarf planetâ status, potentially highlighting its current classification as a woefully inadequate description of such a dynamic and interesting binary system.
Ok, so it's a "binary dwarf planet" - can we tone down the prose now?
How can you "debate" about that?
> That is the nature of competition.
In a situation with dozen's or hundreds of competitors it is, but without government enforcement cartels develop naturally and quickly (unless one company thinks it can bankrupt the others and become a monopoly). It's far more likely Nicaragua and Panama will come to an agreement.
So far, these are the words in the question that no one can agree on a definition for:
