Because people who live in NYC think the world ends at the outer boroughs.
It's not like this wasn't a blizzard at all. Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts are all getting hit with a lot of snow and wind. What happened is that the model predicted more of a path over the Hudson Valley rather than interior Connecticut. It literally came down to which way the wind blew. The problem is that as hard as snowfall is to predict, predicting how a bunch of people are going to react in less than optimal weather is much harder.
Agree with you on the 2008 thing. I remember seeing ads around in the newspaper in 2002 or so for 105% mortgages (so that the borrowers could not only get 100% mortgage on their home but also so that they could borrow more for their OTHER bills). The fine print talked about it being APR....and having the rate change in 5 years. I recall saying to my husband, "Wow, how stupid can people be to take that?" Sad how many people were.
Great article on their imminent demise. http://www.sbnation.com/2014/1...
Around here, knowing R can pay some bills. I'm surprised it isn't listed among the Math languages.
You could probably do this with Tasker on Android, though I haven't tried. You can at least get as far as setting Airplane mode, which will kill off all your distracting radios anyway.
Google Maps does that, though not necessarily including skateboards and hovercrafts in your area.
So long as Apple is going to insist that browsers have to use their Safari rendering, alternate browsers are going to suck on iOS.
Google's doing a lot of work on this. http://gizmodo.com/googles-ima...
Google Plus Photos - you'll be able to use regular search for your photos ("my pictures from Cape Cod", "blue", "pictures of fish", etc.) plus you can at any time use Google Takeout to export all your pictures to someplace else.
....which was pretty doable already if you had wifi on an airplane and a connection to orbitz.
Your using the term "Catholics" pretty liberally here. Catholics range, in fact, from pretty bible-thumping-believe-everything-the-Pope-tells-me to those who think the church hasn't been the same since Vatican 2, to cradle Catholics who attend mass mostly for the social aspects, from Steven Colbert to Bill O'Reilly. Hell you'll even find the same variety among priests and bishops. So, I'm fairly certain there are Catholics who believe in evolution and there are also those who don't. Same goes for abiogenesis.
"Even if medical privacy laws did cover data recorded by a Fitbit band, it wouldn't matter, Reitman said, because there's an exception to HIPAA for law enforcement queries, national security and many other legal requests." To me, this sound like even X-rays, EKG results, MRI or CAT scan results or even just doctor's notes could be at risk. So, if an insurance company thinks you are lying about your disability claim, they could ask law enforcement to grab up the X-ray of that broken ankle you suffered playing in the beer softball league. You don't need a wearable for any of that.
This is just killing a very small function in wallet that mostly no one was using anyway. It does not in any way kill Google Wallet NFC payments or Wallet itself.
....Don't ever change you magnificant bastard.
