Luddite, huh? So all you can contribute is name calling rather than actual understanding of things. Interesting.
You still have a filter in your brain that lets you not buy stuff. Use it, lukite.
Love how they take something simple and make it complex, failure prone and expensive all in one fell swoop! Blah.
Don't worry, they aren't looking for _you_. They're looking for the development team members who really do have five years experience with Swift. This requirement is a filter so you won't get caught up in the hiring.
"I'm a Windows Phone user"
WOW! Finally, I've 'met' one. According to the sales states there was someone who bought a Windows Phone but I didn't expect to actually make contact with you. Hey, how's it working out?
Your funny. Wish I had points to give you for humor. You claim to be a power user but everything you want to do in life is quite easy, hit the Terminal, or even the settings alone, and customize things a bit. Complaining about your wallpaper colors not matching is not very power userish.
There's plenty of sunlight. I'm a farmer so I have lots of experience growing pasture and grazing livestock. I've seen many of these solar array fields. A lot of light is getting to the ground. The grasses are growing very nicely down there. I'm your reality check. Try quitting Farmville and taking up the real thing so you learn this before posting comments about things you don't understand (solar arrays, plant growth, livestock, etc...)
This is just more government and not something we need. People who think the skies would be packed with drones have no concept of 3D space. Drones are tiny. Skies are huge. Value of drones is low. Air Traffic Control for drones is totally unnecessary. This is just a distraction from the much more important issue of privacy.
"There has long been a clear hierarchy of intelligence in the psychology lab, with monkeys are at the top, then rats, and finally mice at the bottom, "cute and fluffy but not all that bright."
So where do the scientists fit in? Somewhere in the middle? Just above rats? Hmm...
The problem with this is that Bill Gates started out very rich and became extremely rich. It is a lot easier to get richer when you start out already very rich since little of your income is consumed by necessities and your time is freed up from survival thinking to thinking about how to get further ahead. Bill Gates is a bad example of success. All he had to do was jump of the cliff of his Daddy's money.
They need to integrate the 'solar farms' with pasture based farming. You can graze sheep, chickens, ducks, geese, cattle and goats under these solar arrays. It ends up like a savannah with filtered moving patches of sunlight and shadow. Very effective for pasture. Plenty of light gets to the forages for growth and the animals trim the forages so brush doesn't grow up in the fields. This avoids the need for mowing - a user of fossil fuels or at the very least electricity and time. Unfortunately, too few of these solar farms are through through that far. I know of only one.
Eloped, no spending on wedding, no wedding guests, no church and several other 'problems' but 25+ years and going strong.
He does have some things right and it is always interesting to read things like this but important to understand the difference between correlations and causation as well as how variable reality is.
What is most important is we share values and goals. We have a shared dream and both work hard to walk that path, together.
What do you have against dolphins?!? They want jobs too so they can earn money to buy shiny trinkets, fish and sponges. By the way, dolphins have a word for PETA but I can't print it here because it's not polite.
I'm so sorry to hear you're humor impaired. Don't worry, Bill Gates is working on a cure.
In the end we'll all get Back-to-Basics with BASIC so it may be the last programming language standing, much to the chagrin of so many snobs.
