Mirror the display, mic, speakers and touch screen of your smartphone. Done. Was that so hard? If you want to show off you can even make it so you enable voice commands by default and integrate with steering wheel stereo controls.

911 Calls are toll free. You don't need to pay for local service to use 911. As long as your house is wired for phone service you can plug in a phone and dial 911. Just make sure you use a old dumb phone. Its great when your cordless phone doesn't work if the power is out
BCC is simply a tool to keep the privacy of e-mail addresses. There is no inherent expectation of confidential knowledge. If you want something to be confidential you should explicitly say so which means forwarding the e-mail with an explanation. It seems to me like the author of that article is just complaining because people do not use e-mail the way he wants them too.
Last time I went to the DMV I walked in, picked up a number, waited about 5 mins, talked to a teller and was out the door all on my lunch break.
Last time I tried to buy high speed internet it took 2 hours on the phone, 3 customer service reps, and 2 canceled installer appointments (I got the self install kit) to get my cable modem registered. After all of that they didn't even remember to bill me for it. When they did remember to bill me for it several months later they sent some installers to put filters on the line. They didn't do it right and disconnected me instead. They sent another 2 installers over to fix it but those two forgot to put the filters on the line so it was all for nothing anyway.
Google was not the first one to publish aerial imagery. It has been around since before WW2. In this case Google isn't even the one who takes the photographs. They simply pay for a license and then make money from ads/selling the software.
Perhaps for the same reason people who don't like Obama don't all pack up and move to some other country. Customers a have right to have their voice heard.
At the moment being the key word. My company built 6 computers a few years ago that had this cap problem. One of them failed at 2 years all of the rest failed by 4 years with 3 all failing in the same month. Looking at the motherboards the vented cap was easily visible. You might get lucky but chances are if you have a defective cap it will fail within a few years if you use the computer regularly.
I don't fully trust that study so take what you will from it.
Actually there is no Constitutional Requirement for a secret ballot but there is no requirement for a public ballot either. Up until 1880 most US elections were by public ballot. The decision to use a secret or public ballot is left up to each individual state. Most states now use a secret ballot that is specifically designed to be untraceable to a specific voter but that is not a requirement. All other records are generally public information including your voter registration records and whether you voted or not. Since a petition only supports one view point it is not possible to have a secret petition that is in any way verifiable.
Common sense would say no as you own the device and your employer is compensating you for using your equipment but common sense isn't as common as it sounds so I suspect it would take a Supreme Court decision to answer!
Somehow I don't see that many teens buying a $60 beer.
That condition is already pandemic in men.
Defiantly something everyone should watch.
SSD's are not commodity products where one manufacturer simply slaps a label on an OEM product. There is actually a large amount of complexity in these drives with different storage controllers, caches and memory playing a large roll in performance and reliability.
You get put in a black prison and disappear. The government erases all public records of you.
No I'm not joking.
