As long as at least one of them is built in the mohave desert and is called Helios I, I'm all for it.
Because they don't. iOS app install works flawlessly.
Even if they didn't, Apple support takes care of it - while Google pushes the burden to the developer.
I think what the GP was suggesting would be if Sony, on their own, came out and apologized for being so negligent. Of course that will never happen.
It wouldn't be enough. At this point, I would want Howard Stringer fired (not allowed to resign, but actually fired) before I would consider buying Sony again.
And this from someone who at present has:
1 Sony PDA
1 Sony CD Walkman
PDA and Walkman? The 90's have called and want your comment back.
It is both observable and has been repeated in many experiments.
Some of them are not even experiments per se: see antibiotics and bacteria.
Ok. Nuclear is bad mmmkay?
Now, what is the alternative? Fusion does not count - we need it right now.
Forget the "real world".
If they can deal with whatever abstractions a difficult CS course is throwing at them, they can learn the boring OO stuff by themselves.
They are teaching functional programming. Therefore, they can work on practical applications. Try Haskell, Clojure, Chicken Scheme, for instance.
OO is overrated. It is still nice to bring it in when you need it ((use coops) under Chicken) and then forget it completely where it is not.
There's nothing illogical about that. You are using instincts to teach someone - that works even against whatever rational barriers the subject has constructed. Pain = bad and can't be ignored. The problem is that people used to abuse it so much that any sort of physical punishment got banned.
Plus, are you a Vulcan?
Since when 12 year old kids are qualified or considered an authority to assess a person's medical condition?
Bah. Parenthesis matching is absolutely nothing compared to Paredit http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/ParEdit
Perfect. Please move quickly to the chamber-lock, as the effects of prolonged
exposure to the button are not part of this test.
People doesn't seem to get it. The SSN number is not an ID.
It should only be useful for the Social Security. However, due to lack of alternatives, it's been bastardized as a general ID.
Also, you are a bunch of crybabies. In Brazil, we have:
0- Birth certificate
1- ID (requires 1 to get) (has photo)
2- CPF ('physical' person registry) (arguably redundant with No.1, but required for historical reasons). It has a status, which is tied to your income tax papers. If you do not pay the damn taxes, or if you fail to present proof that you are not required to annually (too low income, for instance), it gets 'dirty' and will not be accepted anywhere until you clear it up. (requires 1 to get, no photo so 1 is required almost everywhere you have to present this). This is what is commonly used as a natural key in databases.
3- Voting card, also with an unique ID (requires 1 and 2)
4- Military enrollment card (requires 1, 2, physical examination etc)
5- If you want to be employed (not a business owner, not in the military), you require something that looks very like a passport and records all your employment history. Rough translation would be 'Worker's wallet'. (requires 1, 2, 3, 4 if memory serves right)
6- Driver's license, if you drive. As it has a photo ID and has (1 and 2) written in it, it can serve as your ID for most purposes
I might be forgetting something, but the above are expected for all citizens. God help you if you are mugged with those in your wallet. It can take weeks to get new copies. And the birth certificate is the greatest pain of all, so almost everyone presents copies when required.
