I remember punching up around 200 cards and then dropping them on the floor while taking them to be submitted. I do not think I would refer to that as a fond memory however:)
I feel sorry for the poor person who is simply trying to reduce her carbon foot print, live a physically smaller foot print and have economical transportation in a large city. The people tipping car a simply juvenile regardless of their age.
That's only 4 flukes right:)
Given the post by anonymous cowards yesterday on the Jessy Jackson article. There are plenty of slashdot readers that can fit into this category. Are they mainly gamers?
Straight talk uses T-Mobile
Because I buy no contract phones that are GSM I am part of the only real competitive network in North America. ATT vs T-Mobile. ATT's 3 billion contribution to my plan now means I pay $50 (1st line) + $30(2nd line) + $10(3rd) all with data, text and talk. Previously 2 lines cost me $175 under contract. Thank you ATT.
Many would debate whether the vacuum robots we can afford are worth it:)
Fortunately there is a solution. Software defined radio. If that were to deployed SDR as part of the communications network we would be able to talk to old equipment.
The problem is not the Kindle. Publishers (particularly scholarly publishers ) have not adopted epub format. PDFs do not reflow to screen size therefore they will NEVER be useful in devices of variable screen sizing. Sorry. There is no reason you should not be able to get you publications in a format that would be more convenient to read on any eReader. Check put http://elife.elifesciences.org... and down load the epub version of the article. I wish plosone.org had the good sense to provide an epub versions but they are too far behind the times.
$10,000 was the price of the first Lisa Computer from Apple - um 30 years ago. The Pro seems fairly priced in comparison:)
Brilliant!! THe UK will now be able to use the nations pubs to generate energy. Given the high domestic alcohol consumption the UK will be energy independent in less than a year. It could even become a patriotic duty to drink even more:)
China seems to flip a switch on BGP and all the traffic gets routed through them. The US can't stop that. The problem is that the rest of world relies on US benevolence. Something they seem to be re-evaluating as we speak.
If I can question whether I have freewill then I have right. I haven't read the article yet - bet that is what it says - you know it does. Somebody go find out for me!
Finally something Google Glass will actually be good for:(
First programing in itself is not difficult to learn. Evidenced by the massive number of self taught programmers myself included. Second given how rapid technology is accelerating programming as a useful skill could very well be obsolete is 15-20 years. Finally critical thinking, curiosity and a willingness to take risks are timeless. Teach your children well (give them values). They will be better off.
