Looks like you're the next group to get your jobs outsourced.
What's really needed is to have OS-level control of permissions that the apps can't see. If an app is denied access to your contacts, it can see a dummy contact list. If an app is denied Internet access, it thinks the device is simply out of range at the moment. If an app is denied location services, it's told that there's no signal (or optionally given a fixed location that you specify).
Otherwise apps will refuse to function based on the lack of access that they don't really need.
Not everyone can afford the monthly mortgage payments for a 15 or 20 year loan. Yes, you pay more with a 30, but at least monthly payments can be made!!!
Glad to be so close to retirement and then I won't have to deal with this crap.
You will NOT come out of this unscathed. None will. What will you do when inflation hits and thus marginalizes you life savings? What happens when -not if-, the US becomes insolvent. In fact, paying down the national debt is mathematically near impossible; or so it was last year. It hasn't exactly improved a year later.
I'm reminded of the saying. What cannot go on forever, won't!
Sorry AC, both the young, middle aged, and elderly are about to get get fucked badly. In different ways of course, but fucked none the less.
My guess is you will find it hard to sell them drugs offering "longer life" when those who are not killed by medical intervention, accidents or poor hygene live longer than westerners, and have good lifestyle (large families, parties, respect, etc) that they would not get in the West.
having clean water or emergency care not a right?
I think you need to get more people online so they'll get civilized enough to recognize emergency care being a right even if you're not in the ER because you were shot by a cop.
why you think there's an exhaust system? none of the makerbots have one.
if makerbot execs are involved, you might want to ask them if they use the "manifest of done" by bre pettis(the mb douchebag who ran the quality to ground and sold to stratasys
basically the manifest of done goes like this "if it might work, call it done and move on - never do a cycle of refinement on the design, just start selling it" which lead to their huge returns for the 5th gen printers due to them a) printing worse than their previous generation b) asking customers to buy 170$ extruders every time one jams and the jam often.
also, if they're exec MBI people, you should ask them if the sample pieces were cut on the machine they're showing! (5th gen makerbots were shown at ces with replicator 2 printed "samples"
resources will last for quite a while if used properly. the current food problems are NOT a problem of not having enough food on earth - or places to grow it or enough water for it or enough nutrients for it. it's about the food rotting away in other places than where the hungry people are and the people not adapting in the places for different crops or techniques.
and frankly pretty much all current famine situations on earth are caused by political strifes/wars, not because those countries wouldn't have enough resources mind you - they just can't get along well enough to use those resources to make enough food.
yeah because the modern lifestyle of the rich is TOTALLY independent of the rest of the society like microchip producers and what have you(oh wait you mention some _outside_ government keeping the riff raff out for them - for what motivation? for what motivation would the others consider the "rich" folks bank statements to be worth anything other than numbers? how can they be rich?)
besides, the article is not about if only the rich get it or if the rich will move to gated communities or whatever.. it's just OMG WE RUN OUT OF RESOURCES stuff. reality is not reall that much of running out of resources but having something meaningful for everyone to be doing - I vote for implementing the matrix.
but really, the article is not news, it's just speculation that's been around for decades if not hundreds of years.. it's just shite.
well you should have said that executives from a company that did a total 180 degrees on open source were involved.
2500 is quite a lot.
your personal Rainer told you to put butter in your coffee since saturated fats are a "GREAT SOURCE OF LASTING ENERGY"?
who cares if your cocoa powder and sugar is "highly processed" or not.. it's the overall calories that matter. sugar and cocoa themselves don't get any more processed in the process.
if a prosecutor doesn't prosecute the "murders for hire" then how in the fuck it's just for him to use those as reasons for giving a harsher sentence? he didn't charge him with those crimes.
it's not usual in europe for prosecutor to say that the accused is guilty of crimes he is not being charged for, as if being guilty of those crimes was a proven fact. a separate probably going through case would be grounds for lesser sentence in the one case(since the total would grow up - also, in europe in general stacing of sentences doesn't work in the same way so there isn't , as much anyways, of cases where people have sentences of hundreds of years...).
it's bullshit and good grounds for appeal... even more so because the feds were soliciting him those "murder for hire" offers.
