The question implies that EVs aren't successful, yet no one argues that hybrids aren't successful and EV sales are ahead of where hybrids were at a comparable point in their adoption. It takes a while to get people convinced to adopt something new.
So despite NeXT being a Jobs led company and working on NeXTStep since 1989 and Jobs pushing Apple into adopting that architecture for the next Mac OS, it's a "cheap way out"?
Except they were, they increased Apple's profitability, increased market share and brought in revenue that allowed Apple to develop iPod, iPod Touch, iPod Nano, iPhone, and iTunes Music Store.
Jobs didn't "shit can his own operating system", Jobs switched from the System 7-OS 8 operating system to Jobs own NeXTStep/Mach kernel approach
I manage 44 devices in building that use iOS7, this week I've had 108 wifi connection issues on those 44 devices and it's only Tuesday.
The 121 devices running Mac OS, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Linux that I manage have had 0 wifi connection issues.
Except for all the success they had with iMac, Powerbook G4, iBook before iPod
It has to be a debit card; since Paypal stopped doing virtual cards, I don't know of any debit cards that do them any more. I have Discover and Citibank credit cards specifically because they do support them, though that doesn't help here.
And actually, they do brag about being PCI DSS certified in their "Security" section.
Which doesn't mitigate the fact that they are setting up a phishing gold mine: "click here to enter your debit card number and receive some free money!"
I specifically *avoid* the "News Feed" *because* it weeds stuff out. Maybe I'm weird, but I actually want to know what my friends have to say - that's *why* I'm on facebook. I don't want anyone else blocking stuff, especially when it does such a crappy job as facebook does, blocking way too much, yet not blocking the crap like "games people are playing" and "trending" that *facebook* sticks in there that I couldn't care less about.
And speaking of "anyone", one of the defenses against snooping through people's postings is "it's a computer not a person", meaning "no one will know what we find". When you get to a certain level of ai however, there's not a practical difference as far as the privacy issues people care about are concerned...
...is that he was far more accurate about the negative aspects of 2014 than the positive ones...
I've said this all along: if cell phones were as dangerous as people make them out to be, accident rates would have skyrocketed over the last couple of decades...
We have a certain amount of processing capability, and the danger isn't until you cross the threshold. Talking generally doesn't do it. Texting usually does, though mostly because it's an inherently more cumbersome user interface.
Can I run Office on a Nook HD+?
I got a 13", 1.3GHz, 8GB RAM, 256 GB hard disk.
Very impressed with the battery life.
Doing browser and light word processing in Mac Office and Google Docs, I've gone 13 hours and 11 minutes between full charge and needing to recharge or else.
The US military M67 grenade weighs 400 grams.
A small drone like draganflyer-x6 can carry up to 270 grams (like a small digital camera)
And you still can't mount a Griffin (AGM-176) on a light surveillance drone.
The vast majority of drones owned by the Feds, law enforcement and military are sub-20 pound things like what Seattle PD tried.
Seattle PD used 3.5-pound Draganflyer X6 six-rotor helicopters
Those only fit on Predator (MQ-1) and Reapers (MQ-9), they can't put missiles on light surveillance drones
22 years come this fall.
