Patent sales like this one should be forbidden. Nortel was a practicing entity that used patents defensively as a Mutually Assured Destruction weapon. Selling this weapon to a non-practicing entity who is happy to use patents offensively with no fear of consequences would be akin to selling Ukrainian nuclear weapons to Al-Qaeda back in 1994.
When people become hungry and desperate, they organize and fight. This happened throughout the history. If anything, organization is much easier today than when unions first formed. Yes, it is not going to be pretty. But the end result will be more equality, including sharing the remaining work.
Many things in science are settled beyond any reasonable doubt as false simply because they contradict obvious observed facts. Sorry, Earth is not flat and was not created literally 6000 years ago in literally 6 days.
Old cellphones get passed down to me, you insensitive clod!
For many years I was using second hand phones. 2 year old devices out of contract are good enough for me.
That, an I only use unlocked GSM.
Ok, here is my question.
I don't own a gun right now. If I get one, will the chance of death or injury (not just gun related) increase or decrease for me and my family?
Is this a good enough question?
I don't really care about being robbed. I don't own anything that can be easily taken from me and leave me ruined.
The only real currency in this world is power.
The more power you have, the more you can take away from others ("borrow"). The US dollar is only backed by power of the US government to coerce people and other nations, nothing else.
Bitcoin has no such backing. It is worthless.
I live in Arizona, you insensitive clod.
TFA does not mention any computer files.
She provided TheDC with a photo showing the stack of file folders in a bag marked âoeevidence/property.â
The best environment is one that already has the stuff for your application, so that you just cobble together calls to code written by somebody else. Perl + CPAN was the winning combination for many years. These days it seems to be Python+numpy/scipy/scikits.
How about not doing illegal things in the first place?
A lot of motivation for insiders to disclose the "sensitive" information would go away.
A compass, a paper map of Moscow and a flashlight? Is this all CIA has in its arsenal? O yeah, a semi-literate "recruitment letter".
Another detail that make it sound even more ridiculous: an FSB guy lecturing Fogle on Russian primetime news about how spying is bad. Looks like some really bad spy movie.
I think this story was created by FSB for consumption within Russia. It is possible they knew more about his activities, but they are not telling the interesting stuff and for some reason decided to disclose this "evidence" that makes people laugh.
I tried to find data on historical accuracy of predictions by Gartner, but surprisingly, there doesn't seem to be any.
Here is one example (which is actually not that bad): http://www.networkworld.com/news/2008/013108-gartner-it-predictions.html?page=1
The price is still fairly steep. $50/month for unlimited talk + 500MB of data.
Data only is $20 for 500MB, $30 for 2GB, and it quickly goes up.
The fact that these plans are reasonable and attractive tells a lot about the "competition" landscape in the US.
It makes sense to use RPi when you need ALL of these:
1. Linux toolchain and lots of available packages (open source)
2. Develop on the device itself
3. Once the application is ready, disconnect screen/keyboard and use remote SSH if necessary
4. Low cost
The cost of an USB IO expansion board is typically higher than RPi.
Ask to be transferred to their legal department. That will put you on their REAL Do Not Call list.
