How many rainforest diseases have we taken back to civilization? Syphilis? What about when man encounters extraterrestrial life - we have sci-fi stories about how they die because of our germs and diseases but what about the pathogens they bring to us? Will there be a mass die-off of human life on the same scale? If the government is scared of something, Im sure this would be high on the list, TFA being an example
Seems like MS was stack ranked by the mobile computing market and was put at the bottom of the pile. Ballmer is a classic American management type - a salesman in charge of things he didn't understand. And now he exits with a heartfelt confession of failure that will supposedly make him more human - more likeable. No.
Investment bankers are slime, a large enough population of bacteria forms a slime, so slime (bacteria) as a model predictor for investment bankers should make perfect sense.
Suits and bankers always bring this subscription shit up. You would think Adobe of all companies would have learned from Quark = do not piss of your base. Hope this spurs gimp, pixelmator, cinepaint et al to get their act together.
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
Not when the US carriers charge what they do. A cheaper iphone isn't going to help boost verizon subscriptions up to corporate expectations... cheaper rates will. Im as tired of hearing "cheaper phones will make..." as I was of hearing "ipod killer" 5 years ago and "ipad killer" today. When the carriers lower the rates - and not until then - I'll buy one.
I just love "the market and privatization will win the day" goons like you. Private companies have done such a great job keeping the earth clean and safe, not to mention their sterling record of labor relations, worker safety... But they will do great things, if you cut their taxes, let them bend a few laws, bail them out when they fuck up... The Gov't always has to do the dirty work - the infrastructure, roads, dams... then idiots like you dismantle the systems they built by claiming private industry could do better, when all they do is pillage profits that a stable society allows them to access to. Do us all a favor and go elect another politician who will make a 20 year career out of being "anti big gov't". everything you mentioned is only possible because nasa went to the moon - And if private industry ever gets into space they will never (Im saying never) ever (x) do anything remotely altruistic/scientific for its own sake, like nasa, like everything you mentioned
"why does the general public in the US still cling to their customary system of units?"
Is this a rhetorical question

O.C. and Stiggs were characters from the old 1970s National Lampoon magazine... when it was still just an east coast college rag, long before they became known to the general public for the chevy chase fraud "vacation" movies. The original magazine characters were a riot - the movie was a travesty that was years past it's relevance. Nothing to do with DR and Quinch.
