Since anti-discrimination laws protect PEOPLE but not EVENTS, someone who will serve ginger people, but not participate in ginger events, would probably do OK in court.
Tell me, how is that rational? Unless some religions are indeed more equal than others.
Right. So, suppose I'm a member of a religion, and the religion has a whole two mentions of gingers in the holy texts, but no mention of them relating to home improvement; you are saying I couldn't downright refuse service to gingers, but I could refuse to refurbish their kitchen? Because that just seems quite retarded.
(If you think this analogy is not apt, please show me the passage in the Bible condemning gay marriage.)
Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7, Nexus 9, and Nexus 10 devices receive the latest version of Android directly from Google. Once an update is available, it can take up to two weeks for it to reach your device.
That's the theory. I got the 5.0 OTA update for my 2013 LTE Nexus 7 in mid-Februrary, some two weeks before I got 5.0 on my Z2. Now Sony had promised Lollipop in early 2015, early March is stretching it; still, I don't think that's as worse as having a Nexus device with such a ridiculously long update cycle.
Right. If I'm on a mobile device with data caps (which I don't have here, and they're an abomination, but that's another discussion), I sure as hell would be much more happy to reload an entire page (yes, some of the content such as CSS and images can be cached, but the HTML markup can't) instead of loading a little bit of JSON that would be rendered as the new data I wish to retrieve. Static HTML is obviously so much better.
(I'm not saying blocking third-party scripts and cookies is a bad thing, I do that myself. But as to whether I'd like to go back to the static web as it were in the 90s, hell no.)
Not to mention that in my experience pretty much no program offers "English, intl." option. I've done sales/customer support in English and have been commended for my English by native Brits. Still I do have an accent and voice commands are very much more (almost completely) miss than hit.
Now, when voice commands support my native Finnish I'll be seriously impressed, what with all the regional accents and spoken language being rather different from the written form. Not seeing that happening any time soon though.
There are methods beyond two-factor authentication with a mobile device. For example, my bank here in
But now you're asking, what about when the codes run out? Initially you receive the first "code list" physically from the bank. You need proper ID. But beyond that, when you find out you're running low on codes, you can order a new list. That is delivered via regular mail, but in order for it to be active you have to use two codes from the previous list, enter the serial number of the new list and a given code from it. If that is being actively abused, people are keeping very quiet about it. Your banks are just lazy.
Not trolling, this has been my experience. If you want real 3D performance, the proprietary crap is what gives it. And VDPAU is nice. There are some nuisances, with Optimus chipsets you have to use Bumblebee which is kind of annoying if you don't want to burn through your laptop battery in minutes, and AFAIK the driver still doesn't support XRandR 1.something (1.2, I think?), that would allow to alter multiple monitor settings from the settings of my DE instead of using nvidia-settings.
Having said that, I've pretty much given up PC gaming so I don't really need 3D anymore. Intel is just fine for a compositing desktop.
