"Lush" is a well known brand. If people go to www.youtube.com/lush they would expect to see Lush cosmetics, not some random guy. Similar for www.youtube.com/mcdonalds.
Uh, who are these "people"? I've heard of McDonald's, but I've never heard of Lush cosmetics. If I went to www.youtube.com/lush, I don't know what I'd expect to see. Certainly not a cosmetics company. Porn maybe?
Well, thank you for pointing out the two main issues here. Greedy providers that abuse caps for revenue, and apps that suck your data plan dry not by going "haywire" but by design.
The 5G Network Speed Funding Bill is passed. The system goes online August 4, 2015. Human decisions are removed from strategic communications. 5G begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Easter time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.
Which part of the brain holds your conscious self?
The part which does not understand the Force, of course.
"I suggest you try it again, Luke. Only this time, let go your conscious self and act on instinct."
The crux, as I see it, is that an add-on box is clunky compared to a TV. It's a thing that has to be installed.
On the other hand, if you already own a decent TV, then installing an add-on box like Apple TV is a much easier installation than a new television set.
Fixed-pitch fonts, I miss those. They made UI development so much easier because the sizing was far more predictable than variable pitched fonts.
Not if you have to support translation of your UI to other languages.
... but we shouldn't expect a $9 computer to be as powerful as a $35 computer.
The 1975 me just thinks this is really funny.
We are truly living in the future. $35 computers? $9 computers? Bring it!
The only perils I find with C's type system is in void pointers, for example when implementing a comparison routine for qsort — but I really wouldn't call that perilous.
The simple answer is that once you learn how to code it doesn't matter what the language is.
I couldn't disagree with this more. I don't mean to be flippant or argumentative; I simply want to say that my experience has been quite different. I think the langauge you write programs in is incredibly important. You want the right language for the task at hand. Just as an example, I often prototype new ideas for algorithms in Perl as a prelude to rewriting them in C. Perl (and I'm sure Python is as well) is great for a quick prototype and for proof-of-concept testing. But it's terrible for speed (compared to C/C++), and is also terrible at type-safety. When I rewrite something in C, it often runs 100 or 200 times faster than the Perl version. (Not for parsing and string-based stuff, but for integer numerical analysis stuff). But exploring the data structures and getting them worked out first is easier in a high-level language like Perl, with its dynamic arrays, hashes, autovivification, and so forth. Anyway, I rarely prototype something C, and I rarely write production code in Perl. For me, the choice of the language is one of the most important decisions I make on a daily basis.
iPad Continues to Lead Declining Tablet Market in First Quarter
The point is not that Apple is leading, but that the market is shriking. This might be a way for Apple to ship more iPads.
Nuclear is the key to low carbon power. Wind and Solar will help but they do not work well as baseload. Thorium based nuclear and possibly Fusion aka Lockheeds High Beta reactor is what is needed.
...and Mr. Fusion.
Stevia is, to me, the best tasting of the non-calorie sweeteners, and I use it in my coffee, and in my homemade grape soda.
I prefer stevia as well. But I find that I only like it in my tea and not in my coffee (although I used to like sugar in my coffee just fine). Out of curiosity, which brand of stevia do you like best? Maybe I need to switch.
[...] early Apple III computers where heat would cause chips to expand out of their sockets, [...]
“It’s not wise to upset an Apple III.”
“But sir...no one worries about upsetting a Droid.”
“That’s ’cause a Droid don’t cause people’s chips to expand out of their sockets. Apple IIIs have been known to do that.”
“I suggest a new strategy, Artoo. Let the Apple III win.”
