and chances are good, that this is your boss.
you'll never know, when you'll need to prove that you spent time on something. and, if you want to make a career, don't be humble and think that your work speaks for itself. advertise yourself - you won't get fired for bragging, just promoted.
a UI that doesn't suck would have been enough for me. on the other hand - compared to the time, you're passively watching tv, interacting with the UI is negligible - i can tolerate the slow, cubersome UI of my sony-tv as long as picture-quality is o.k. and i won't have to pay a premium price i'd likely have to pay for an apple TV-Set.
well, resort to an archaic tradition like marriage, get treated like you live in the past. easy as that.
it's exactly that - the movie looks like they shot as much action as possible and worried about story when editing. still, it is visually stunning and had great practical effects - this is a "leave your brain at the counter" movie that doesn't disappoint and doesn't insult your intelligence by trying and failing to present a "story". also, it's more or less made for adults - hardly any nudeness, but at least some gore. so, no winter soldier, pacific rim or guardians of the galaxy - just simple, stupid action for a male audience over ten.

a small usb-stick - because they got the least amount of plastic that could warp. put them in a vacuum flask, so they are nicely insulated.
with the only slight fault that psychohistory has become a real thing. too subtle.
it's not a contradiction, because those actors can also be marketed for commercials, convention/tv appearances, speeches, computer games, voice acting.... even if they don't get any more significant movie roles ever, they can still make a living (and thus have enhanced their marketability) with their star wars fame.
would probably help more. exactly how many plane hijackings have been prevented by locked doors in the last 14 years ? that's the problem with security theatre - there's no stepping back until it takes a violent end (e.g. totalitarian society).
either get the microphone closer to the person speaking (e.g. handing a microphone around) to tune out most of the room, or make the room sound better (curtains, reflection cancelling wall panels,
and that's only their tvs. i've heard their phones can steal your identity and make your wife pregnant
