Ugh. "Uber for X" sort of made sense for startups selling services where people drive out and perform small tasks for you. This is not that.
well you're going to love my startup. Oober lets you crowdsource a person to call for your Uber for you. Oober's like Uber for Uber!
A railgun projectile that travels slow enough that the target can evade before the projectile reaches it?
Only if that target is the Flash.
The posted advantage of a railgun is it's range. At the extremes, time of flight for the projectile is probably long enough that it can be evaded. Of course, those extremes are beyond what you could even fire the laser at in the first place. If i've learned anything from Eve though, it doesn't hurt to have railguns AND lasers.
Good luck getting those automated semi trucks out there.
Singling out just one group because it gets the most publicity isn't good enough, and i don't think it would set a good precedent. signing petitions just to target one individual [organization] is little better than a lynch mob.
Instead, we should have a real discussion in this country about tax free status of all religions. In my opinion, none of them deserve it. They are all businesses bringing in money. They should participate in the system just like we expect Apple or Walmart to. Plenty of deductions and loopholes exist for charitable acts. I'm sure if an organization is leveraging those provisions, we would all be fine with them paying less taxes.
we had to eat those words. the device clearly was far better at stuff. it was too expensive, but clearly had a wonderous display and interface.
when the ipad came around, i felt like i had to at least acknowledge that even though i had a phone, the big interface was kind of a novel experience. those previous devices always left me feeling like, "omg! i could make use of that."
This thing just doesn't have that. it feels like ios was forced onto something just to prove it could be done rather than because it works well. It's a piece of ios jewelry. There's nothing really wrong with that though.
i'm not a hater. i'm firmly in the camp of: if someone thinks it's going to be so convenient to keep their phone in their pocket and only look at their wrist, they are a fool, but if someone says they spent $400 because they thought it looks nice, who am I to argue with that. Honestly, you just made me reevaluate the usefulness of it. It might be kind of cool.
