Glad I wasn't the only one to immediately think of this.
All the major testing houses check for false positives alongside detections, but perhaps they decided more false positives would still look better on benchmarks than a lower detection rate.
I'd love if they could start a new company that pays royalties, Spotify-style, where it can, yet allows users to share rare or otherwise unavailable content as well. Because of the mess of regional rights ownership there will probably never a fully legal way to enjoy all music worldwide, so a gray market will always be necessary to fill the gaps.
In the meantime, I'll sing a song for them.
(...and good luck downloading that legally, US slashdotters)
Don't worry, at least the speed of light is different.
I felt a great disturbance in the force, as if millions of transistors suddenly cried out in terror...
...except Safari, and mobile browsers in general. Also, expect XP support to disappear from Chrome shortly.
On the other hand, Microsoft has made it a point to discourage users from installing OS upgrades, by charging lots of money for them and changing core functionality in undesirable ways.
Twitter is RSS feeds, centralized and simplified. It works well for a lot of people.
If it's stupid and it works, it's not stupid.
It didn't get that far; apparently the game quit after the nations researched global thermonuclear war.
Probably a bug, they'll fix it in the next revision.
Oh, not the game—learning 'moccasin' is a color.
They could do that, but it wouldn't be a backdoor.
The tank wasn't made from transparent alumin(i)um. Scotty traded the formula for enough polycarbonate sheets to build the tank. IIRC they even say it will take years of research to manufacture the stuff.
(mind you, they still could have done the job more cheaply with steel, or welded some deck plates together, or simply filled a cargo bay with water. But it made for a good scene, and who cares?)
I remember this, and it ends with me being called an ugly bag of mostly water.
No, my car has an air filter.
In a sufficiently strong crosswind, yes.
(Why do you think we have a grid road system, if not for tacking?)
Then again, if these are already areas of 'elevated seismic hazard', it's quite possible that inducing the plates to slip now will prevent an even larger quake in the future.
Geoengineering is a new science with great unknowns; we should not approach it without caution, nor should we assume anything we do is bad.
