Right here, it's a bit confusing because the maps in the article are turned ~90 degrees.
As the author points out, each phone release is accompanied by a major OS release. With a major software release comes bugs, as well as a raft of CPU-eating new features to play with, so it makes perfect sense that there would be a spike in complaints about performance and a host of other issues. No conspiracy necessary.
The baseline healthy person is of mixed race, has 1.93 arms and 2.1 children, and is a hermaphrodite.
Chicken. It looks like chicken.
So, the problem with first-person shooters is that you're running or crouching or jumping in the game but not in the real world
Yeah, we know you're just trying to sell these.
Because something that has to be done every year gets done every year, like taxes.
Something that has to be done every 10+ years is a lot more likely to get lost and forgotten. Sure, you could set a reminder...but where? Staff get replaced, calendars get replaced, software gets replaced, computers get replaced, offices get cleared out, and the people who trained the current employees weren't even around themselves the last time it needed to be done.
It's like the hundred year $DISASTER, which kills hundreds and causes billions in damage simply because it's so rare. If it happened every year, damages would paradoxically go down because building codes would improve and the public would be better prepared.
We are required by law to deport illegal aliens to their point of origin.

The problem with dystopian theories like this is bullets are cheap. If you've subjugated the public to the point that you can force expensive brain surgery on them, why bother? Just shoot the people you don't like.
Besides, there's a huge market for non-lethal weapons; if this works on everyone and incapacitates rapidly, government labs and defense contractors will be tripping over themselves to reproduce this effect through external stimulus. No surgery necessary. Woo...
Fortunately for you Slashdot isn't a book, play, or film. (Although I'm probably skirting the edges with Google's Operafier plugin.)
What's amusing is that because they have the word "coin" in their name, people automatically consider coins money. But they're not money. They're just tradeable metal discs. If they had called them Nickelplates or Copperounds, no one would think of them as money, and they would have gone nowhere.

Guess what! Everything is arbitrary! And it's wonderful! You can buy a house with colored pieces of paper or wear a beaver tail or race steam-powered airships or conduct a symphony underwater. The world we know is nothing but the sum of a billion crazy ideas, and the greatest people in history are the ones who made it a slightly weirder place...Or not! Who knows?
Bluffdale Utah has a population of approximately 8000 residents who could at any time have seen the blimp, but the location of the site is so far to the outskirts of the city as to make it pointless.
If only someone had invented a tele-seeing apparatus— then people from all over the world could witness and converse about their protest.
Alas, such a thing does not exist, so no one even knows it happened.
It would just become a political mess; Biofur would get mired in a war between the sweatshop garment workers' union and the hoover lobby.
A phone that can get to the dialer to make a phone call would be "working"
And this is why QA hates devs.
ONCE AND FOR ALL!
Whew! For a second there I thought you were going to say "M".
