I have to do the same damn thing every three months on one system and every six months on two. This doesn't count my system admin passwords (which we mostly eliminated through the use of private keys). One system I use so rarely that I have to have it reset when I want to use it (it's the vacation database, which does not use the same password as anything else in the company).
The cell phone companies have the ability to disable service for any phone permanently. They already do this in most of Europe and has almost eliminated cell phone thefts. The American companies resist doing this common sense action because they can still make money from stolen phones.
The constition also makes it crystal clear that the power of the Federal government is EXTREMELY limited, yet that hasn't stopped them.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
There is plenty of evidence (video) of people in Watertown refusing permission and the police basically telling them, "fuck you, because we can". They did not bother to get a warrant. Yes, people are often too quick to waive their rights. At the same time, the police are too quick to ignore them.
Your memory is faulty. OtherOS was never advertised. It was mentioned (accidently) at a game developers conference in an offhand remark, but it was NEVER EVER NOT ONCE advertised as a feature, especially not as part of the "Does Everything" campaign". I challenge you to find an ad that mentions OtherOS. Since the internet is forever, you should have no problem finding something that might back up your argument. No photoshops, though.
My ex was a translator and she was constantly complaining about the steady decrease in work because of machine translations being used. The machine results were crap, but they were free, so the businesses didn't care.
Once we're on the right-hand side of the Laffer curve, you'll have room to talk. Until then, you're just being (knowingly?) disingenuous.
Every serious study puts us to the left -- often, far to the left -- of the peak.
Is it necessary for the government to get the maximum possible amount of revenue from taxes? I say no. The amount they should be collecting is no more than the amount necessary to run lawful government business. Note the important word "lawful". Our Federal government is doing a whole lot of shit they aren't supposed to be doing.
I guess they haven't changed. Many years ago I worked for a small game company that had a contract with EA to create a game. Near the end of the project I was working out of one of their offices. I was frowned upon for only putting in 12 hours a day and refusing to work on Sundays. I told them flat out, my brain starts shutting down after too many hours and I need one fucking day a week for myself. I will never ever deal with EA again.
And I'm also guessing the WikiLeaks party will be pro-rape.
Castro's revolution had its flaws but he never openly tortured or killed his fellow citizens
That is flat out, 100% WRONG. One of my high school friends was from Cuba. Both his father and his uncle were tortured by the Castro regime because they didn't fight on the "right" side. They were lucky they weren't simply shot, but my friend's dad walked with a severe limp for the rest of his life. And Che was a murdering bastard who had a habit of shooting people he only suspected of not being loyal enough.
Know what those Che tshirts are good for? It makes it easy to spot complete morons.
incremental improvements and an overall nice phone, sure, but the ad I saw said it was gonna be the biggest revolution since the color TV.
It's aimed at iPhone 4s owners whose loyalty is swaying.
It's aimed at iPhone 4 owners where are easily impressed by a cell phone that can make phone calls.
The fair-weather pro-Constitution people still think the 2nd is a collective right, despite the Supreme Court's rulling in the Heller case.
My company has a maximum, but it's a lot more than yours (over 500 hours), but they will bitch at you long before you reach that max. You can cash out your holiday pay, but you have to take a day off for each day you cash out. so take a 2 week vacation and get paid for 4 weeks. That's a pretty sweet deal.
At the moment I'm sitting on over 200 hours in my vacation bank. I plan on taking a few weeks after March when we're done moving our data center.
as if it's their right to tell us what we can use our own hardware for
If you want to root it, feel free. Just like you are free to root the PS3. But if you do so, don't expect to be allowed on PSN. Their network, their rules.
If online gambling were illegal in the US, then Antigua would have lost the court case. Since online gambling is allowed, the WTO ruled (correctly) that blocking Antigua gambling was protectionism.
If alcohol is illegal in a country (which is very common in Muslim countries), then the WTO will rule against the alcohol distributor.
Basically, the WTO legal stance (which the US agreed to) is there must be a level playing field. You can not implement protectionist laws such has high tarrifs for imports and subsidies for domestic.
