It isn't a win because a pill isn't going to stop diabetes (for example). Losing weight can be hard, especially (ahem) when you get above 40 but it isn't impossible. Pills like this should be reserved for the morbidly obese and should only be used in conjunction with mandatory and perpetual doctor care. The goal isn't weight loss. The goal is good health. You can have a BMI of 10% and be in horrible health with diabetes and any number of other ailments.
Outside of the hobby aspect of it, there could be a real future in lower end devices.
Consider the resources that Android takes up. If you have something that is this small, efficient and presumably stable and you need to build out a lot of very small factor devices (phones, ereaders, tablets, medical equipment) something like this would be a very good thing.
That will come. Military technologies generally make it down to the consumer but only the military can afford to pay for the R&D into such things. Once it is produced, used and does all its killing, it will make it down to the consumer for exactly what you say.
At this point none. Originally Emacs. Which was very important to the 1980s and early 1990s free software movement. I think he was heavily involved with the early movements for GCC like the debugger and its ability to handle multiple languages especially COBOL.
Yes he was involved in GCC and of course Emacs. I am not suggesting in anyway that his contributions weren't valuable. Just as his contributions today are valuable. What I am saying is it wasn't "he" who accomplished all of this. It was a huge army of people who prescribed to similar ideals as RMS.
My previous post got marked as Troll is actually kind of surprising since I wasn't bashing RMS in anyway. I just was trying to keep the record straight. If you look at the history of his two greatest (known) feats, Emacs and GCC I think you will see that they both truly started to progress once he wasn't involved as much and focused more on what he is really good at, which is espousing his ideas.
No. He didn't. Was he a part of it? Absolutely but GNU has never produced a usable unix or unix like operating system and it certainly wasn't RMS it was hundreds of thousands of free software and open source developers.
Ask yourself, "What software projects does RMS devote his time too?". To my knowledge, not many if any. He is a great advocate and he has done many things for our community but he did not complete what he set out to do.
SalesForce is a company. Their job is to make money for their share holders. If the management decides that they have overlapping roles then it makes sense to retire those roles. I am sure they have a policy to hire within first, people can always reapply if they like working for the company.
Well actually, I never bothered finishing college. I found it useless for my chosen career. That is not to say I don't understand the benefit thereof. Some of my suggestions still apply. Want to go to a good law school? Cool. Make sure your grades are good enough to get at least some scholarships or defer until you serve 4 in the military so you can get a huge chunk paid for by the GI Bill.
MAYBE, just MAYBE you don't get to be a lawyer.
Your costs are including living on campus. You should not include living expenses as you would have them anyway. Again, live with family, have 6 roommate, take longer to finish school. There are plenty of options.
Heck, go to Western Governors, 100% online, accredited (truly accreddited), accelerated and you can challenge out of classes. Total cost? Oh about 7k a year and they go all the way up to Masters.
I said, "some" of the responsibility. Parents certainly also bear some as do the colleges who are very much ripping people off.
Then don't go to that school.
I read about this all the time and wonder to myself, "Who is their right mind goes 100k in debt for school?".
Students need to take some responsibility here. You may:
* Have to go to community college for the first two years
* Have to live with mommy and daddy for a few years
* Have 6 roommates
* Have a job (yes I am aware that isn't as easy as it sounds)
* Wait a few years to attend college so you can save money
* Join the military so you can get the GI Bill
* GO TO A CHEAPER IN STATE SCHOOL!
Yes college is expensive but a lot of the time what I see is students wanting their cake and eat it too.
A smart TV is what I would get them. It is completely self contained, no extra box, no extra remote. They have Amazon Prime, Hulu, Netflix and even Vudu I believe.
Easy. It isn't the employer deducting the fees it is the bank. Therefore it is not a pay cut.

Then kick them out buy buy a mailbox from the UPS store for 1 year for them. Heck, get a Net10 phone for them to. Pay for those two things for a year, (about 60.00/mo) but make them actually get their arse in gear.
