"IBM petitions Congress for increased H1B quota to support semiconductor research."
Somebody please mod AC +Informative. One of the few comments that seem to be informed about reactor physics, and not just conjecture from amateurs.
Depends on whether you're referring to government surveillance or private surveillance.
In a world where government can freely and unaccountably coerce the private, they are the same damn thing. What Facebook knows, the TLA's know.
Out of the maligned 30%, I'd like to see a breakdown separating the merely technology-challenged versus people who have seen enough stories about identity theft,
Here's a news flash: Engineers with actual jobs couldn't care less about quanta. In our world, P.I.D. calculations and control loops are based on the actual phenomena being controlled, said phenomena being analogue in behavior.
If you want to have a mainframe grinding out the quantum equations for a functional room thermostat in near real time, that's your business. For the rest of us in the real world, there's analogue engineering.
Bingo! ding ding ding Lucky winner! You nailed it right on the head.
Nerd hero non pareil. Fear the lollipop.
He must be the non plus ultra of evolutionary progress, since never has there been a face so in need of being punched.
"Among other things, Snowden signed an oath, as a condition of his employment as an NSA contractor, not to disclose classified information, and knew the penalties for violating the oath."
The entire Wehrmacht swore an oath too. Breaking a pact with evil is no evil. I suppose you think Colonel von Stauffenburg was a traitor as well?
Fuck off and die.
The mapper is for custom settings. I have my own layout of movement and menu functions that let me play away with my left thumb on a 360 pad with right hand totally free (like reaching for beer). The controller configs I've seen from native out-of-the-box support are generally still stuck in the X-wing joystick era.
| "Windows gamers can now use the Xbox One controller to play games on their computer. If a game supports a USB gamepad or the Xbox 360 controller, it will also support the Xbox One controller."
Patently stupid. Any Windows game can be played with almost any controller using a key mapper (I personally use XPadder).
You are quite right, and I wish I had mod points. As I was reading your post, the mention of doctors' protocols sent off alarm bells.
Without going too far off into Big Brother Paranoia Land, I wonder exactly how confidential this sort of ostensibly private diagnostic data is. Is data protected by professional protocols and HIPPAA somehow immune to MITW packet data-mining by Google, NSA, et al?
Bullshit. Money knows no party affiliation, and your sainted Democrats are equally as corrupt.
The only difference between the two faces of the Oligarch Party is the range of hot-button issues they use to create an illusion of real choice.
HI! I'm Joe Beats.
Say, what chance does a deceased returning war veteran have for that good payin' job, more sugar, and that free Mule we've all been dreaming of?
