Shhh! Don't tell him that stuff. I plan on offering him my patented optical disk Carrington Event protection device. To the untrained eye, it may look like a paper bag, but for the low low price of $999.99 you can own it today.
Why is it, if a poll shows an approval of over 50%, the media takes that to be overwhelming support? Taking into account that many polls are biased to provide the answer they are looking for, a narrow margin is not really something that major decisions should hinge upon.
So you get 305 Mbps during the 15 minutes out of the day when they aren't throttling. What is it the rest of the time? Speeds should have to be reported as average access speed not peak potential.
Citing criminal behavior as a reason to require more legal restrictions doesn't really work well as a convincing argument. Someone who has decided to engage in a high level crime is not going to think twice about committing a lesser crime in the process.
That being said, I believe the restrictions would be good to prevent a company from providing that service and making it easy for said criminals.
Please! Take action so we don't have to take responsibility for our own lives. Heaven forbid we ever have to think for ourselves.
A better solution may be to force anyone who complains about how this type of thing negatively impacts them to take a class in self control.
The only requirement to receive funding is that it meets the project guidelines and that they receive the target funding. Kickstarter is an all or nothing goal. Once they receive the money there is really nothing to control them but their own drive to complete their project.
Most projects are being done by inexperienced people and they learn things along the way. There are usually delays because of unexpected hurdles. Most projects are on KS because they could not receive traditional funding and some of them for good reason. Most don't get funded. Sometimes they fail even after funding. And that is nothing odd. Just look at the statistics for failed small businesses. That is part of the risk. It is also part of the allure and reward is to help people accomplish their goals.
Many projects have few updates because they only think to report milestones. Once a month after the campaign for complicated technology is pretty good.
As with anything that involves money, there are people out there trying to get it without working for it. Those projects are usually easy to spot. No updates, no prototypes/sketches, poor description, copies existing product or recently successful KS. If it sound too good to be true, it usually is.
If you want your assured reward, you should wait for the product to hit the market and buy it then. KS is not for the skittish.
And the use of those accents led to accusations of ethnic stereotyping. It's a very dangerous path to traverse in our hypersensitive society and I don't blame filmmakers from avoiding the subject altogether.
...that you can play on your internet-connected computers.
Ah... now it's all clear!
The only place where the cloud could possibly be useful to me is to use it with my phone. However, the restrictive data limits for my unlimited data plan phone make that option worthless too.
Secondly, if I'm going to have to take the time to rip the file myself. I'm going to do it myself. At home. For free.
Don't forget that a lot of those positions are State and Federal jobs. You know. The ones that are being squeezed by budgets because we don't dare cut entitlement programs or raise taxes.
It's not just one thing. You could go into more institutional issues like science based careers requiring a longer and more committed education (most people really don't wake up one day and decide to be a scientist - there are fundamental concepts that have to be learned before you can be trained in useful activities). The work load during school limits the amount of partying and who wants to give that up. Weakened science programs up to and including high school reducing interest or preparedness to even enter into a science based major. Stuff like that and a few others all help reduce the numbers.
If anytime someone gets close to 3GB of usage they get a threatening text telling them that they will be throttled, of course most people will use less than 3GB. They need to let it go unthrottled (and unmessaged) for a few months to see what the true usage would be if people were not being threatened. I rarely use a lot of data but discovered this last month that if I watch a half hour of video every day, that is enough to throw me into the 5%. Apparently a half hour of video a day is considered unreasonable.
Whether or not it could actually be enforced, I would make a point of mentioning to the gentleman that if there were anyone under the age of 16 in the library that he might find himself arrested for lewd acts involving children, something that gets you put on that wonderful Megan's Law forever list. The threat alone should be sufficient to stop the activity. If not, start dialing the local police and see what happens.
Yes, but you can function with one of the cheaper cards, you don't have to have the most expensive option.
The only difference between the iPhone 4s 32Gb and 64 Gb is 32Gb of memory. The difference in price is $100. Are you all going to vilify Apple the same way for not including the ability to insert SD cards?
I fully agree with the aristocracy observation.
Included in that is the inbreeding that eventually leads to ineffective and insane members. Many are fully functional, but a few are just way out there.
"... they assumed that the data would be used to improve traffic safety and road engineering"
I don't know about the Netherlands, but for most communities in the US this function is performed by Public Works.
A poor lie at best.
