A lot of car safety engineering IS designing the car so that the passengers will survive an accident. Car manufacturers are not relying on drivers being safe to claim that their cars are safe.
Or they could just release an exclusive Zelda title on it
That's exactly right. None of the games available for it right now are games that I would buy even if I already had the console.
I don't understand how they could release a new nintendo console without a Zelda game or a "real" Mario game and it expect it to sell at all.
Jonathan Coulton pays Sir Mix A Lot a royalty.
Yup, that's the only thing stopping al Qaeda from developing an air fleet--they know it would be out-gunned by our F22's.
After all, we do have to prove that we own a horse and buggy before we are allowed to ride the bus.
If new technology was allowed to replace the old, it would be madness! Just think--all those people who make a living by delivering ice to our houses so we can keep our food cold would be out of a job!!
Excellent way to put it.
This is exactly what I think, but I've never spelled it out so clearly.
...the final design will be quieter.
Combat pants use buttons instead of zippers because they are quieter--government contractors know how to make things to spec.
If this is being planned for uses where noise is an issue, then it will be as quiet as it needs to be.
...is how few men there are in quilting clubs!
I once dated a woman who ran a quilt shop and every time I visited the store I would hear comments about how strange it was for me to be there.
I hate it when publishers change a few minor things and put out a new edition.
Can't you just keep using the old edition until the changes are important enough to upgrade?
While the online Cleverbot searches its banks 3 times before providing an answer, the test version searched 42 times, so it probably has a little different feel.
I doubt that the test version would really be as good as a human, but it should at least be better than what we get testing the online version.
Sounds to me like it is saying that those who try harder, do better.
I'm not sure there are many people who didn't expect this to be true, but I guess it's nice to have common sense verified.
Notch made no mention that they picked 11/11/11 'because' other games had done so. More likely, they picked it because it is a numerically cool (and memorable) date just like why the other games and movies picked it.
Other things being equal, companies usually pick launch dates that aren't crowded.
Nope. There were a few times when the humans buzzed in first and it showed that Watson had a confidence level above its buzz-in threshold.
Because people recognize his name.
