Now maybe people will actually bother using their email encryption and secure VoIP services and anonymized Tor routers and all of that fun stuff now that you KNOW that they're tracking you. Even moreso now that the telecom companies are in charge of collecting your data, since I trust them less than the NSA.
Yeah, well, you have to pay a premium to get on top of the list:

For my part, I'd be happy with the $200 GPU that gets me in the top 20... (GTX 960). I'm guessing that will get the Ti treatment next.
Though I'm still pretty happy with my 560 Ti, which is still pretty decently placed at roughly 1/3rd the speed of the top card. I think the last couple of generations have been skippable, though I'm now starting to get interested in the triple-monitor capability of the GTX 900 series... once I go out and buy 2 more monitors. My only fear, of course, is that VR headsets will make peripheral monitors pointless soon, though it doesn't seem like any of them really tickle your peripheral vision the same way.
Aw, crap, you half had me hoping San Andreas might have been a GTA movie like Crank.
Oh well, I guess I can appreciate the humor in an earthquake movie starring The Rock.
Yep, Disney is betting big on China becoming a huge emerging market for their entertainment. It's almost as if they were about to...
Oh yeah... next year: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S...
You'll appreciate this, then:
Let's hope the OP never discovers the USB power strips, or he'll have 6x more problems in his life...
But according to demographer Philip Cohen this does not explain the entire leap. Social changes in the nature of marriage seem to be driving the change. Whereas marriage was once near-universal and unequal, in recent decades it has become a deliberate option and more equal. Well-educated women have been able to form strong relationships with similarly brainy men, in which both parents earn and both do some child care. Getting an education and having a career are no longer always a barrier to having children; sometimes, they make it easier. Also as more career-minded women have had children, they have become powerful enough to demand time off from their employers. Although America has no national system of paid maternity leave, many professional firms now offer paid maternity leave—Ernst & Young, an accountancy firm, offers 39 weeks to its employees, for example. Meanwhile poorer women have had little luck of that sort. "Iif I’m a lower-income woman," says Stephanie Coontz, "do I want to hitch myself to a guy who may become just another mouth to feed?”

Well, you really weren't that far off the mark.
I went to an Ivy League engineering school about 2 decades ago. They did just about all of their classes in anything *but* C++ . Intro to intermediate courses were in Java, because it pretty much worked as documented. Higher level courses were in scheme, lisp, or whatever. Low-level assembly language classes were done in your own virtual machine that you had built in the java courses. Engineering programming classes were in C (for low-level I/O), Labview, and Matlab. There was *one* small 2-credit elective on C++ that taught the vagaries of C++ for the students who wanted official exposure to that stuff. That was enough to land them at Microsoft or Apple or Google or whatever big shop they wanted to run off to or start their own thing.
My wife and most of my friends went to State University. Intro-intermediate CS were total weed-out classes, and taught in C++ . They spent all of their homework time fighting the tool, debugging stack and buffer overflows, adjusting ulimits, tracing pointers... anything but actually learning about data structures or algorithms. The smarter students figured out how to use the debugging tools and source control to get by, which weren't covered in the curriculum. The State U. didn't exactly produce CS grads so much as CS survivors. Which I guess is an important quality for employers too.

But... but... but without Dice, my python bash one-liner would make NO SENSE )-;
NONE! Find a real language! *ducks*
Ooh, another Dice discussion!
