Don't worry. The plucky geek sidekick will - via phone - talk him through reprogramming his entire GPS operating system by pushing five buttons in the right order.
"This is Unix. I know this."
The hundreds of thousands of people who are alive today because of those actions probably don't consider it "nonsense".
Actually, yes we do.
Do not -- by any stretch -- put it past the interested parties to thusly lie.
>While the idea of a gun that couldn't be turned on its owner seems like an obvious win for everyone involved
Um, except for the intruder/burgler. Not that I'm pro-intruder/burgler, but... "everyone involved"?
If it's not transparent and open, it will be hijacked and abused by the government. Not even a question. You yourself may have the best of intentions, and the evolving system may currently be in a benign state; that's well and good, and I thank you for both your intents and for your summary of things as they seem at the moment. That being said, it does not in any way serve to derail the larger theme that this will be abused and corrupted. I have no doubt, however, that the government will do its utmost to pretend otherwise. And this opinion of mine is based on a LOT of evidence.
Anthony Hopper, chief executive of advertising agency Lowe Open, said brands need to change how people buy chocolate, but acknowledges that it won't be easy.
After that scene where he talks about eating fava beans with a light chianti, I figured he could make anything sound tasty. No surprise he ended up in food advertising.
It is also the truth most times.
Hmm... in other words, most things that seem different or unusual correlate with something that should be hidden. If that's your meaning, disrespectfully disagreed.
Far less misleading (while being *at least* as "accurate" as the existing headline) would have been something like, "Execution use would lead to ban on drug's importation".
Imagine if President Obama had stated, 'I believe the nation should commit itself to the goal of enabling all Americans to access affordable health insurance' but then left the how to do it to some of the best experts in health care and economics without partisan interference."
Yes, imagine if he or anyone had had the political freedom to leave such a choice to truly non-partisan experts... but he didn't have that freedom, because there are such corporate interests vested in the outcome, with tentacles all into both parties, that such freedom to do so does not exist. If back in Kennedy's day there were numerous huge wealthy corporations with interests in the moon landing NOT happening, or happening on different timetables with different agendas, *and* the liberty to corrupt politics with money had reached the fever pitch it has today, *and* politicians had already given up the idea of even posturing to seem like they had nobility and dignity above that of a Geraldo show, THEN the moon landing might well and truly have been f*cked.
US Executions Threaten Supply of Anaesthetic Used For Surgical Procedures
HIGHLY misleading headline. I read the headline and thought, "wow, so many executions are occurring in the US that there's not enough of this drug for non-execution purposes"... which is a much more straightforward interpretation than what the article eventually gets into, which is that the use of the drug in a single execution would make an EU regulation kick in.
BOOOOOOO, slashdot editor. Boooo.
