The summary is mostly to blame here, because it leads you to believe the exact opposite of what's happening in the NJ state legislature - namely, that the bills introduced are all to RESTRICT drone usage in NJ. Even the least restrictive proposal seeks to require a warrant for their use and outright bans them for use in traffic or speed limit violation instances. The most restrictive seeks to ban them completely from the state.
Thanks for jumping the gun, everyone, and assuming that there's going to be speeding tickets handed out via drones in NJ. Blame slashdot if you want, but in the end, you're the morons for not RTFA.
It will be interesting to see what the pirates and posers do.
Quite the opposite. Pirates, as always, will download a copy (provided by um, you know, "them") that will run on your machine without phoning home to Adobe, and it will only be a minor inconvenience to install it properly, which is pretty much the way it is now with pirated copies of CS6. Real professionals will be the only ones experiencing a difference, both in how they pay and what it takes to keep the program running, and it will be interesting to see what THEY do.
Why was this not modded up informative? I've never driven a RHD vehicle, so I did not know. There's no reason to assume the whole vehicle isn't mirrored.
Probably because the AC post before him was so obviously a joke to 90% of us, that some guy missing the joke doesn't deserve to be modded up, according to the mods. (they're right)
"beer taste on champagne budget".
Still, that probably beats having it the other way 'round.
Well, like Mark Twain pointed out, it's all in how you look at the stats. The numbers of households without a TV was 1.1% - now it's 3.3%, or triple the number. The trend is clearly towards less households with TVs, and again, it's young people leading that charge, so it would seem that 3.3% is going to increase.
I don't care much one way or the other - I have only 1 TV, which probably puts me in the minority of households with multiple children (most families I know have multiple sets) but there's no denying that the perception that it's necessary to have a TV in the house is declining. That's got to be of some concern to network execs. After all, at some point 96.7% of people were buying CDs and weren't using Napster. That trend continued despite the record companies ignoring the early signs. Not a perfect analogy, I admit, but it's sort of relevant.
Source, please? Your claim is rather extrordinary.
Not so extraordinary, when it's fact.
Even scarier for the TV networks is the reason that TV ownership has dropped - more and more YOUNG PEOPLE don't want and/or need them. As more old folks die off, and those without TV's get older, expect the overall percentage to drop further.
As for the "who you know without a TV" anecdote - I don't really socialize too much with kids in their 20's (I'm old) but I do know personally of three households without a TV of any kind. All of those adults are in their 30's. Two set of them even have small children, who it looks like will be growing up without a TV. So it's not as weird as you think, at least among young professionals.
