Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
As for controlling it from your smartphone unless you have backup with other switches and remotes it will be difficult for those that are not connected e.g. children
Cool features that could be turned on remotely is heating a spa pool so its hot when you arrive home so yes there are very few items that are worth the long distance remote reguarly most like turning off the lights is used when you forgot to do it at home however a few sensors and that is automated too
Care to explain why Cuba is a failure when health care and education are on a much higher level (and much cheaper) than in the USA albeit being under a boycott and other sanctions from the USA the last 70 years?
I don't know, why don't we ask the hundred of thousands of Cubans who fled that paradise and decided to live in Miami instead? Just to be fair and balanced we could also get the opinion of Americans who fled the USA and went to live in Cuba (if you can find one that's not a wanted felon).
Correct me If I'm wrong didn't Castro empty the prisons and send them to Miami and the US just took them in creating a crime wave in Miami and reducing costs for Cuba
Democracy assumes we are all smart and will vote in the best leader however it fails in that most people are dumb and self-serving and vote in the person with the biggest promise.
Capitalism assumes that all people are smart and work hard and will generate wealth but most people are dumb lazy and self-serving.
In all 3 economic/political systems we didn't let Darwinism to work and eliminate weak, stupid, and lazy
Women, for example, may select a career for its monetary benefits, as a way to command their own independence; while men may seek a career for a perception about women being hot under the skirt for doctors, lawyers, and executives. Overwhelmingly, the decision is based in what is interesting.
Interestingly the Chinese economy is reportedly 2% better because of this women in short supply men need to attract them however this is something that has been happening for eons males always tried to show they were bigger, stronger, faster and lately richer or smarter and women wanted these attributes as it would mean their offspring would be protected men could then have their pick, usually the most attractive. Lately women wanting to be independent or increase the quality of male they attract can take steps and go into a career or use the attributes to gain finances until they are attractive to a mate http://fortune.com/2013/02/15/... On the doctors lawyer executive this is for the money just ask any construction worker renovating their houses
Up to 10% of those could be gainfully employed keeping the rest in order. By which I mean beating the shit out of them, mostly.
Robots would do a better job here too and maybe perform some quick depopulation or surgery to stop the useless ones from breeding
I want a home that cooks and cleans. Cooks and cleans. I can take care of the rest.
you know they already invented that, the only payment is you gotta ram your dick into their pussy from time to time.
Basement dwelling slashdotters have that already including laundry and ironing and they shouldn't be doing that second bit to their mum
Money is part of it, but it's important to look at it from the other side too. Just getting started in iOS development costs quite a bit of money. The minimum you must spend is $600 on a Mac Mini. You could spend a little less and get a used Mac Mini, but you'd still be out close to $400.
Find another business where startup capital is less than $1000 and running costs near zero this is not the problem your paper route or burger flipping job could have got you the startup money
The problem is as others have said its crowded with crap competitors who spoiled the neighbourhood and it doesn't suit in particular, high end software that costs $1000's requires support agreements and has only a small number of potential clients . in essence the app stores have become a race to the bottom where angry birds will rule because the person looking at the app store is now one of the masses not the person who spent $20k on a computing system for there business and then budget $10,000 for software they need
Additionally the motive I'm expecting Bono to now come out and say "Songs of Innocence" the most downloaded Album in history but I would give more credence to a torrent stat at least someone deliberately wanted that
