Honestly? They need to fix their 'data fiefdom' problem. Whenever you attempt to edit something, your changes are usually encroaching on someone's 'turf' and they will revert your changes (even if your right). You can certainly go back and reverse their change cancellation, but they will come back and cancel out your cancellation of their change and so forth - after a few times, since your new; they will just vote to block you and all of your hard work goes into the pages of 'unaccepted revisions' (which is just shy of the great bit-bucket in the sky).
Well, yeah - choose it without, but if you can get a wonderful deal on something that just happens to have a camera and microphone in it you will -never- use - why let a thing like a camera or microphone be a deal killer when there are such easy fixes for them.
If only they made a tape...opaque...that could be used to cover up the cameras - then we'd only have to worry about the microphone - which might befall an accidental exposure to superglue. Microphones don't work when the little inner bits don't vibrate anymore.
Many many many reasons you'd want to make your own soap. Perhaps you want a scent that isn't sold at your local outlets. Perhaps you want to make a more natural, less polluting product for your own use (simple soap recipes can be pretty eco-friendly if you plan them right). Perhaps the parent sells homemade soap at farmer's markets and local health food stores?
...the incident of violent vandalism aboard trams and trains rose exponentially after the introduction of technology that, to paraphrase a gibbering offender led away in a straight jacket, '...puts goddamn voices in your head..." Advertisers are calling it a new age in advertising and psychotropic drug manufacturers report a boom in sales. More at 11...
Sadly, personal experience != 'experience' in the corporate sense. I've had this fight with IT recruiters and headhunters - they want experience in a corporate setting with corporate problems, not 'I dorked with it at home for x months or years'. Of course, people who actually know what the hell they need value ANY experience, so its not a complete waste - just getting to interview with them versus the HR drone can be the biggest problem.
Good advice on TechNet though - helps you get a leg up on new OSes and obscure software without having to buy those licenses separately. BIG COST SAVINGS!
Nice referrer link! I think they would want a display that doesn't drain a battery quite like the displays on most active screen tablets (you'd be lucky to get 8 hours out of a current Fire). This would be more for the low-power-draw devices like the Kindle Paperweight.
This place has become such a wretched, spam-infested unwashed shit hole since Dice bought them. No moderation, no spam removal, bot running rampant. What a dump.
...because the new owners of
I've heard people mention that the Ouya won't really be all that - but I disagree. For the first time in a while, we have a console designed for the tinkerer and independent developer in mind, and it should be interesting to see what it brings to the table. Sure, when it launches, it won't be all that exciting - but given the resources available to Android developers of late, there is a lot of potential.
Of course, potential and five bucks gets you a coffee at Starbucks - but perhaps the Big Three need to feel the nipping of an indie console at their heels to get their butts in gear on new genres, new stories, and fresh ideas.
I used to just keep reporting it as spam. Over and over and over again - but apparently that flag does nothing, so I gave up.
Most car dealerships are not equipped to handle cash in large quantities, and would most likely offer to take you to your bank to have your wonderful stack of money converted into a banker-countersigned cashier's check for the purchase. That way, if the banker screws up and miscounts - they have recourse, and a cashier's check is safer for them in case the dealership were to be robbed. Of course, if your in a high-end dealership like Audi, BMW, MB, or the like - they will most likely be very accepting of a personal check (assuming they can get your bank on the phone to verify everything is in order).
Of course - "For the Children' basically is a ticket to disable logic and make decisions based solely on emotion, be damned the side-effects later on.
Decisions need to be made on logical analysis and observation, considering precedence and legality. Sometimes, you -do- need to reel in the free market though, else we'd be working ourselves to death for the glory of the company store. Framework helps businesses compete on a known playing field, where some behavior is recognized as being bad for civilized society in general, even if feasible according to private industry. No rules is as bad as too many rules, or stupid rules.
Many a travesty has been justified by the uttering that exact, hand-washing excuse 'The free market can fix it' and its ilk. It's like hearing 'I was just following orders' - we don't buy it anymore, take some personal responsibility for pitching a potentially awful idea.
It's a shame that people who have a lot of intriguing and thoughtful ideas still use this catch-phrase, since it just causes people to tune it out.
Skimming the interview, its clear that there is a LOT of thing wrong with the way the government is run, who pulls the strings, and what ideas get the airtime while others rot on the shelves. It's also clear that WE, the people, put them there and apparently approve of it since we KEEP electing them. In one way, at least, the government works like a large business - if you rock the boat, you get thrown to the sharks less you potentially tip the boat over.
