Oog, you dumb-dumb, go hunt and stop breeding those cows, you will create dragon-cow one day and kill our village
Years later, Oog's village was conquered by the agricultural civilization nearby. Oog became a slave charged with breeding heartier cattle, and his wife bore the children of others.
I'm willing to bet that compared to traditional taxi customers, far more Uber customers would have smartphones with GPS in hand, meaning a much higher risk of being caught by police. You would have better odds painting your car, masquerading as a traditional taxi, and picking out old people to rob.
Perhaps women have the luxury and privilege of not losing attractiveness when working low-paying jobs. Perhaps men are the victims of a society that forces them to over-work and be over-competitive because women ultimately select whose genes are passed on and whose are not. Perhaps this competitiveness is why men will take on more hard jobs, fight for more raises, and suffer the abuses.
Is female materialism driving men into high wage jobs? Maybe there should be a federal law to address this...
So, basically, because personal computers made CS more accessible, and men took advantage of this access in greater numbers than women which resulted in the imbalance we see today, it is therefore the fault of personal computers that this imbalance exists.
It gets image macros from 4chan and still can't decide on what the irony tag is for. Fark has long become a shadow of its former self. The left leaning political correct mob has been in control for many years now -- even being a consistent critic of public officials on both sides of the political aisle gets you into trouble because in those times when you do write anything critical of a left leaning politician, you get 10 replies of people knocking down strawmen and breathlessly posting whataboutisms.
Me neither. It's just a white background with pastel hues. XiaoMi isn't doing anything out of the ordinary when it comes to "borrowing ideas".
Private use is different. Parent anon is talking about proper licensing, with future access to Google's code base at stake. Official releases by XioaMi has not and will continue to not have Play Store access in compliance with Google's terms. That's probably fine for them, since most of China don't use the Play Store anyway.
Again, comparing two unlike qualities. China's tactics in cracking down on terrorism in its western provinces is very much something you would criticize (if you also criticize the US's tactics). That would be a comparison of like with like. Again, the locking down of sensitive political information is our frame, e.g. criticism of policies, posting of data which contradict official released data, etc.
Idiot. China censors curse words as well, that would be your frame of reference. In order to compare the US and China with regard to censorship of information on the internet, e.g. sensitive political topics, you would not be able to use this frame of reference.
It seems like you don't know the Chinese constitution also outlines free speech as a right.
The people in China who are wary of this are those of the Slashdot mindset -- your spiritual and intellectual compatriots who want the same thing as you do, privacy and to be left alone by government. Instead of standing up for friends and allies, there are those on Slashdot who would stand up for government. I don't get it. Are your minds warped somehow? Are you all so tolerant of others that you forget who you should be tolerant of?
What do you think about VPN providers in the UK which US citizens sometimes use to bypass copyright restrictions? Are they violating US sovereignty? Are they imposing their morality on Americans?
Probably western Sinophiles who can't distinguish between government and people. Regular Chinese people have no respect for these Chinaboos.
That's like saying non-US vpn providers are forcing their concept of right and wrong on Americans. The tools are made available, the doors are unlocked. People willingly use the tools, and willingly walk through the doors on their own.
