I have to do the same damn thing every three months on one system and every six months on two. This doesn't count my system admin passwords (which we mostly eliminated through the use of private keys). One system I use so rarely that I have to have it reset when I want to use it (it's the vacation database, which does not use the same password as anything else in the company).
Corporation tax is a small fraction of the taxes companies pay. All their employees will be paying income taxes, for starters.
The cell phone companies have the ability to disable service for any phone permanently. They already do this in most of Europe and has almost eliminated cell phone thefts. The American companies resist doing this common sense action because they can still make money from stolen phones.
Well, it certainly isn't an operating system either.
Your English is fine. Your German isn't.
Nein! Nein! Nein!
P.S. Reductio ad absurdum much.
P.P.S. If you confess to knowing Luxemburgish, just how A do you think your C is going to be?
A "roadable helicopter" makes as much sense as a product as marketing bicycles to fish.
And a "flying car" that can only land at heliports might be great as an easy to fly helicopter, but it's utterly useless as a flying car. As a hint: If you can afford a helicopter and its running costs, I'm sure that the limo from the airport is small change for you.
BTW, in the UK ( so a heli pilot friend tells me ), in general you can land your helicopter anywhere where the landowner has given you permission.
The height from which a fall kills you is significantly lower than the minimum operating height of a parachute.
Traffic jams are real, but putting the cars in the air isn't going to fix that problem. The key problem with driving cars into cities is that they take too much space per passenger (at rush hour, on average, 1.02). Granted, putting traffic corridors in the air gives you a bit more space, but you also need to leave a lot more safety margin.
Flying in a straight line might save fuel compared to flying detours, but that doesn't mean it saves fuel compared to driving. These flying cars don't stay in the air all by themselves, you know? And, seeing as we're all bitching about the price of gas to drive... ask your friendly helicopter pilot how many gallons his chopper burns per hour.
There are solutions to traffic jams. Telecommuting, walking, cycling, public transport.
Oh yeah, and if your hearing's still too good: Suggest to Air Traffic Control that they replace the couple of hundred planes / day over, say, LAX, with a couple of hundred thousand planes^H^H^H^H^H^H"Flying Cars" per day.
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have a flying car. But frankly I'd rather save up for a one off trip to space instead. At least I won't have to kid myself that that's solving any problems.
You'd seriously pass on a flying Ferrari or Lamborghini?
Pfft. Your parents were telling you lies. You're definitely NOT part Italian. Not even one tiny little bit.
The constition also makes it crystal clear that the power of the Federal government is EXTREMELY limited, yet that hasn't stopped them.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
There is plenty of evidence (video) of people in Watertown refusing permission and the police basically telling them, "fuck you, because we can". They did not bother to get a warrant. Yes, people are often too quick to waive their rights. At the same time, the police are too quick to ignore them.
Always happy to oblige the young ones.
I think you'll find that's _my_ lawn
The basic reason: it has no fixed value. It trades like a stock or commodity. In recent days it has been crashing after a spectacular rise in terms of dollars.
Has the man never heard of FX markets? Currencies trade exactly like stocks or commodities. They don't have a fixed value either.
Your memory is faulty. OtherOS was never advertised. It was mentioned (accidently) at a game developers conference in an offhand remark, but it was NEVER EVER NOT ONCE advertised as a feature, especially not as part of the "Does Everything" campaign". I challenge you to find an ad that mentions OtherOS. Since the internet is forever, you should have no problem finding something that might back up your argument. No photoshops, though.
My ex was a translator and she was constantly complaining about the steady decrease in work because of machine translations being used. The machine results were crap, but they were free, so the businesses didn't care.
