"Kit in automobiles have to be built for extreme conditions"... dude, it's a car, not the space shuttle.
"which pose a substantial risk of injury and death to children and teenagers"
nice. MRI because you're too stupid to NOT EAT them (and something is wrong with your brain), not because they need to find them in your gut. standard xrays find metal just fine.
sure walled gardens have their pros and cons.. but the Play store would also SUCK if they let developers pay for placement
"In other words, app-discovery platforms built on paid recommendations aren’t going to fly with Apple."
"app discovery" is different than "app PR" how exactly?
some PR firms are into sketchy shit: http://apple.slashdot.org/story/09/08/25/1946230/gaming-the-app-store
FTA "An internal Drug Enforcement Administration document seen by CNET discusses a February 2013 criminal investigation and warns that because of the use of encryption, "it is impossible to intercept iMessages between two Apple devices" even with a court order approved by a federal judge.
I'm not a security or network expert, but isn't "intercept" different than "decrypt messages stored on a server"?
couldn't it be difficult to intercept (whereas reading messages stored somewhere is trivial - with a warrant)
i can send an imessage using the phone number or one (or more) email addresses. w/o knowing how imessage actually works, it looks like phone to Apple to phone - presumably, only Apple knows the relationship between email addresses and phone number so that traffic is sent on the internet (not a cell network) - don't forget, imessage works on non-cellular devices. how does LE track a message end to end with Apple in the middle?.. remember, the keyword is INTERCEPT which implies realtime, so intercepting a message may not be impossible, but impractical - certainly not as easy as SMS. in theory, I could have an imessage conversation and never use the same email address twice - which means cloning an iphone isn't a solution either.
"Passenger weight is fairly insignificant compared to the weight of the plane itself. There might be standard 50 tons of people/luggage on a jumbo (250 lbs combined * 400 ppl)."
RTFA.... NINE seats on the BIG planes.
Samoa Air’s fleet of Britten Norman (BN2A) Islanders that carry nine passengers, and a four-seater Cessna 172 are likely to be particularly sensitive to the extra burden of such passengers.
empty weight is about the same as a full size sedan
Empty weight: 5,843 lb (2,650 kg)
Empty weight: 1,691 lb (767 kg)
compare to 2013 Volkswagen Jetta: curb weight - about 3100 lbs
we all know you arrive in the states before you leave Japan... and we've had subspace communication since the 60's (I saw it on TV). don't skip drones pretty much make this moot anyway?
what's the problem?

The woolly mammoth coexisted with early humans, who used its bones and tusks for making art, tools, and dwellings. It is thought much of this material was scavenged, but the species was also hunted for food. It disappeared from its mainland range at the end of the Pleistocene 10,000 years ago, most likely through a combination of climate change, consequent disappearance of its habitat, and hunting by humans, though the significance of these factors is disputed.
or just point her at this: http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/paluxy.html (beware: it does mention creationism... you don't want to accuse her of being that)... basically it says the "mantracks" are actually those of a 3-toed dino, but the toe part eroded leaving what looks like feet.
whatever you, make sure you block this at your proxy http://creationmuseum.org/
But a larger question remains: Is public support for human space flight strong enough to spur government officials to pay the price in the decades ahead? On the steps of the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum last week, visitors hoped so.
"There's a lot to be learned," says Tim Johns, 46, of Kaneohe, Hawaii, "and probably it's good for the human spirit to push the envelope."
"sexually inexperienced and frustrated people who say stupid and immature things"
actually, I think there are laws that regulate barrels. Mine have SN's printed on them.. and I assume that's tied somehow to ballistics. the SN on the barrel is the same as the one on the receiver... I don't think I could get an original manufacturers barrel w/o the paperwork to tie the (now different) serial numbers together.
I'm not saying they know the fingerprints of my barrels before sale, but if my guns were ever taken by the police as evidence, I'm sure their ballistic fingerprint would be tied to the serial numbers in some database somewhere.
i'm pretty sure threaded barrels (for use with silencer) are also illegal for the public to own.
the problem is remote bricking is software based. software can be defeated via jailbreak/rooting
even something like this has limited effect because phones are still usable (just not for voice communication)
besides, it takes time for the buyer to figure out the phone won't work as a phone, but the thief still got their money (therefore will keep stealing)
tracking and going after the perp is the best way to curb thefts. If I was a thief, and knew there was a reasonable chance I could be found, i might think twice. a better approach is password to turn off.. or remote ENABLE (can't find a phone if it's not on the network, and in order to be on the network it has to be on). report phone stolen.. then, any time it's on, it starts chirping away "i'm here, i'm here" - don't forget people could get hurt during a mugging - that's what you really need to stop.
two busts, on one day for one phone:
because they don't wash their fucking hands.
(you should use the produce bags for meat and fish anyway)
granted, washing your bags out is not the first thing people think of when it comes to hygiene, but when I come home from the store, if there's liquid in the bag, it gets tossed (or reserved for trash)
additionally, they're talking about a plastic bag ban, but grocery stores were (and still are) using paper bags - I don't see the correlation between a plastic bag BAN.. I could see a correlation if the uptick in illness was caused by "no free bag policy" because the thrift conscious don't want to pay (today, you have to buy them; they cost a dime.)
if there's a further increase in illness since the no free bag policy, you may have a case for causality.. but the ban has nothing to do with it (the dime per bag law went into effect last year so it's probably too soon for make a case)
"The FBI e-mail, zero-day exploit, and backdoor code, it turns out, were part of an elaborate drill Facebook executives devised to test the company's defenses and incident responders. The goal: to create a realistic security disaster to see how well employees fared at unraveling and repelling it. While the attack was simulated, it contained as many real elements as possible."
so the driver, who has presumably driven the car before, all of a sudden doesn't know how to use the brakes, the accelerator and turn the car off.. things you need to successfully accomplish in order to get out after going somewhere?
