It seems to be an increasingly common tactic for games developers to put out an advert-free game, wait for it to gain market share, then force an 'upgrade' that has no improvements at all, but is crammed with so many adverts that the game is barely playable. I deleted "4 words 1 picture" when it turned into "4 words, 1 picture, 1 full screen advert", but I would rather have kept the old, playable version on my phone.
Actually, they are called movies. And I bet that on average, people watch a lot more movies than they read books.
(This is however not a statement of quality, and I guess there are hundreds of nerds who thinks that anectodes equals data which will reply to this and proudly proclaim that they read more books than they watch movies.)
Trial and error is usually required to see if a box responds to a message in the way you want; I can write correct C without having to run the code, I would never try that in Reaktor.
Now that's a brave statement!
I'm always suspicious when that actually happens. Which bugs have I missed?
And it is one of the most difficult, if not the most difficult language for children to learn, taking them up to twice the time to learn their own language compared to children in languages using an alphabet.

As I read it, the word 'poor' in the summary was used in the 'not very good' sense of the word, not as in the financial sense.
...is legalisation. Non commercial sharing of information isn't wrong, or bad for the economy, so the best solution is to legalise it.
If we're on the subject of stupid interview questions...
Anathem rewards persistence, it's not an easy book to get into, but if you stick with it, you'll be taken on a seriously impressive journey. There's a strong chance you'll come out the other side thinking it's one of the best books ever written, and that Fraa Jad is... well, I can't say much without spoilers, but he's one of my favourite literary characters ever.
Yes, anandtech has a block diagram in their review here: http://www.anandtech.com/show/7603/mac-pro-review-late-2013/8
Most of the Affordable Care Act has nothing to do with the web site. The site didn't have to implement those "2.8 million words of Obamacare regulations" as code: it only had to match patients up with insurance plans, which means interacting with dozens (hundreds?) of government and industry databases.
Some states, like California, managed to implement their sites without any of the problems of the federal exchange. The federal exchange mainly suffered from (1) being rushed, and (2) having to deal with a larger number of external systems than any single state exchange.
Well, the summary may be misleading, but it seem to say that a proof has been found that the gap between two consecutive primes is NEVER over 600.
Spot on, simply swapping the launch dates would have made the Volt look like a cheap Cadillac, instead of the Cadillac looking like an overpriced Volt.
Feeding trolls may be immoral, but it sure can be fun at times.
Try adding the words "Potential Microsoft Surface" to the front of that sentence and it works a bit better...
You only need to do that here (Sweden) if you want to deposit large enough sums, I don't know exactly how much should be a couple of thousands of your so-called quids.
I expect this to gradually change within the next 10 years or so, though. I mean, handling cash in this day is suspicious enough when you might as well use a debit or credit card of some sorts, or pay with your phone bill.
