I'm not sure how to say this...funny thing, really...would you believe we all misread your grant application and were quite under the impression that you would help people experience life without terrible diseases?
Yes! That's precisely the technology-wrapped new age bullshit we're talking about.
AI uses sensible variable and function names *and* comments its code?
It's reprehensible that they leverage this incredibly popular brand to teach girls to code when they could be using it to sell Happy Meals and next year's landfill fodder. Shame, shame!
Every time Bennett writes a new story on Sladshdot [slashdot.org], I take a free day and spend it reading the story
Wow, I can never get through novels that quickly.
Google is following Apple and Microsoft and moving away from widescreen tablets. Good riddance, I say; 4:3 or 3:2 is much better for showing a 'page' of information.
That said, I don't begrudge widescreen (tallscreen?) phones, since they have to be narrow enough to fit in your pocket, nor large widescreen monitors, since they can show multiple 'pages' at once. In the 7-13" range, though, widescreens tend to be too much for one 'page' of content but not enough for two, and not nearly tall enough either. Blech.
It is a fake. A very bad, undeniable, fake.
Say the satellite is orbiting at 200km. The planes are flying at 10km. (I'm being generous on both these figures.) The planes are only 5% closer to the satellite than the ground, so perspective would only make the aircraft look 5% larger (barely enough to notice) than they would on the ground.
Now look at the satellite photo again. Compare the fighter to the roads and farm plots it's flying over, and compare the 777 to the terrain features and especially the airport (I think) on the left side of the photo.
(If you're curious, the fighter in real life has a 15m wingspan, the Boeing a 60m wingspan.)
So these don't count?
One is a point of sale peripheral, the other is a Linux desktop environment. Okay, they're both 'technology', but that category is huge and getting broader every year. In any case, neither product is widely known, it's highly unlikely anyone would confuse one with the other, or that it would hurt either brand if they did. The case for trademark infringement is practically nonexistent.
That said, I'm glad Groupon is changing it; the Gnome has rubbed me the wrong way ever since it was announced. The name isn't reassuring on a device meant for handling financial transactions, the early prototypes were a bit too 'friendly' and OLPC-inspired, the current one is huge and clunky, and it lacks support for newer technologies like EMV and NFC. Hopefully this will send them back to the drawing board. Thanks, nerd rage! You saved the day again.
The GNOME foundation invented the word—nay, the letters themselves, carved and finished from wordstone hewn from the deep tunnels of the earth.
It is my intention to conclude this proceeding and have enforceable rules by the end of the year.
Say what you will about the guy, but he didn't exactly swear a blood-oath there.
"Zero day" means the first exploit hasn't been spotted
Microsoft announced the patch and the problem at the same time
Did you even read the summary?
Fascinating. More evidence that my universe intersects an alternate universe in which Apple invented everything.
