Eurasian Land Bridge does not roll off the tongue. Maybe Bogie exchange?

Crap. Yes evaluate the projects first. Do a little internal math and check if the company has asked for enough to complete the project. Do they appear to have the skill set required to get the project out the door? Have they lied in the project description?
I've backed a few projects on Kickstarter (and alikes). I've got some fantastic big name games and cool indy games and the warm glow of knowing I helped them on their way.
Its a risk but a risk but one you can do derisk quite a way.
> Anyone who contributes money to a Kickstarter project deserves what they get.
I agree. I've got naught but awesomeness.
>mostly it seems like it a moot point if it's cheap and offers the functionality specified
I disagree, if the hardware is open source or not is neither here or there but trust in the company providing the product is important and it looks like Anonabox have lost trust.
I use Google Now fairly regularly. Mostly to ask my phone to set an alarm.
Do they run You Tube, Skype (or Google video chat) and a web browser?
If so, I'm sold. Please tell me where I can get a sub 30 GBP tablet.
Where did you get the $35 Android tablets from? The lowest I've seen is in the $50 (£30) range.
Or they have figured out what is best for the customer, and it is what everyone else is providing.
Personally I hope the 6C is closer to the size of the iPhone 4/5, as what is good is options. I love my big PDA (don't give a shit about phones and phablets), but I can see good reasons for others to want a smaller device.
Assuming a $25 contract I guess?
$600.99 or $600.99 - the cost of 2 years worth of credit - two years worth of phone usage?
Now this number will be maybe $450. Some "throwing numbers about" puts two years of credit at $85. So that is $515.99 for the phone + mobile contract. Take away the phone ($450.99) and you have a mobile contract at $32.50 a year or under $3 a month.
I'm not sure I see that as all that bad.
Yes. Or some form of two phase auth. Email followed by SMS for example.
> And WTF does this have to do with overtime?
Many people foolishly think that as they can check their work email while on holiday, they should check their work email while on holiday. By doing so they are doing unpaid overtime (an evil evil thing).
> Most adults who play FPS tend to play offline (i.e. Bioshock).
I disagree, most adults who play FPSes online don't talk.
They do trains so I don't see why not, it is much more moral than the prices they charge on trains.
I come from the same camp, hire the best person for the role. Definitely.
But best is not just "technically best" but also "team fit best" and "not a dick" and "can communicate with the team" and various other little things. What this can mean is that the team unconsciously equates "best team fit" as "same as the rest of the team". The management should step in if this happens and look at ways to fixing what is a problem and reports like the one performed by Mr Apple is one quick way to measure if this is happening.
