If you are young and modded the above funny, you're wrong.
Even if Apple can unlock that data and eventually does so, think about how that might look to some people, who would NOT want their heirs/family/descendants to have the means to rummage through their personal data. You see this happen all the time--families of the deceased try to weasel their way into secrets and intimate histories of those who died. If all it might take is some lawyers and potentially dubious documentation to get around a dead person's privacy, then I would think twice about leaving any personal data behind.
Perhaps stating in your will that the content of your devices is private and they are to be [emptied / erased / reset] would be appropriate then. (Compliance rate would probably be rather high if there was an exception, such as a external hd with family photos to be copied to interested family members.)
The issue is that the methodology for the ranking is questionable, and the methodology changes from year to year. The exact same drop occurred in 2005, 2011, 2014. The issue about press freedom not being perfect still exists, but the story that things have changed is a false narrative.
Could be false narrative. Could be accurate. Nevertheless the ranking (or rather the significance) is worth thinking about.
It's worse than that. When you vote for a third party, one of the two parties still wins, and very likely it's the one from the party that is least aligned with your principles.
In other words, the lesson you're teaching the two parties is that they should encourage a third party to emerge that aligns somewhat with their opponent's typical voters....
So the party that lost votes does not want them back, but instead will encourage a third party to emerge on opponent's side? Are you sure that they will do this, and neither of the parties would be interested in gobbling up those votes, especially if that piece of pie would keep increasing. Considering the system, I think that a vote to the third party would be the loudest way to be heard. Even if you subscribe to the theory that only one of the parties has members willing to vote for a third party (as advocated in the quotation, doesn't make sense otherwise).
Well, if you've already decided that you're an "average voter," then there's not much hope for you.
Most people are average voters... So are you advocating that all is lost?
Of course ones you start gaming and the fan on the video card kicks in the whole thing turns into a vacuum cleaner.
Manually (as setting the speed/temperature curve yourself) adjusting the speed of the fans helps (or may help). I have Windforce 3x in current card and I am quite happy with it after tweaking the settings a bit. The Asus DirectCU was also nice.
None of them are useful or worth while and there are always better 'real' applications.
Netflix. The only app I use. Then again the 'real' application is a webpage, so the competition is not that great. (Actually, once in a while also OneNote, but since I don't have the newest version of Office installed I don't know if the desktop application is better. The app is better than OneNote 2010.)
If you set it up to use the same background as on the desktop the transition is less disturbing. After tweaking the location of the little squares I find it usable, although not an improvement. I set a few updating columns to left, then a couple of columns of static icons related to different tasks and now along with the win+q (which doesn't open the whole modern UI anymore) can find/open stuff pretty quickly.
I still dislike the way right button is handled in the modern UI. Give me my context menus back. Unnecessary useless movements are unnecessary.
