How do you know who is who?
Nice statistics there. A word problem and a number. What percentage is "almost all?" Is 90% close enough, or what?
Is citation an option, though? It is spelled out in the law for traffic violations, but is there any provision for anything like that in the law for other areas?
Maybe there should be. Maybe this case should shine the light on the need.
Which brings to mind an important question.
What makes the ISPs think that the money will flow from Netflix to them?
I can envision a scenario where some ISPs start charging, netflix doesn't pay, and people start dropping to very basic plans because netflix was most of what they used. Plus, if netflix really does account for that much of the data, I can't imagine they're not considering branching out into being an ISP themselves...
Searching for text using the built-in text search feature in ebooks has been more productive for me than flipping pages in real books.
Not necessarily. There would certainly be an initial bump, but if the demand was consistent, then production would roll out to match. Maybe more fields (people buying more "pure" chocolate might require more plants to supply it), re-tooling, or whatever. Eventually the price would stabilize, and might even be lower, if the new demand levels allow for economies of scale and competition is cutthroat.
This is a Wall Street recovery, not a Working Man recovery. Keynesian is an epithet nowadays, so instead of going the 1930s route and investing in infrastructure and public works to put working stiffs back in the field, we elected to dump money on Wall Street until the investors felt happy enough to start diversifying out of their tortoise shells.
Actually both are Keynsian policies, and they should be an epithet. Both produce paper recoveries.
If you want a real recovery, you can't look at the stock market as your signal. It doesn't measure "economic health" at all. If it measures anything, it's "dollar weakness." Printing counterfeit dollars for any purpose will make the stock market numbers go up - by robbing savers of the value of their savings.
It is noteworthy that the Great depression is the one where Keynsian policies were applied most vigorously up to that point. There were depressions before it that we came out of much more quickly. Turning a year or two of pain into a decade of misery doesn't exactly sound like a ringing endorsement of keynsianism. Still, the bankers love it....
Yeah, but inflation back then was also much higher...
It might have won an award, once. Where do you think it gets its name?
I like to refer back to earlier bits, too. Ebooks are great for that, though, because my bookmarks have a snippet of the actual text I want to be able to snap back to. Sometimes with a note by myself. With physical media, I can't search the text, or have a page of highlights to review and jump to. I don't have a built-in dictionary, either, that's a separate device.
I will say it took me a while to figure out the input model the the touch Nook uses for highlighting. There are endpoints, but you can't drag them both. Instead, the initial word is a pivot, and you can drag to points before or after that word. I think. It definitely does not work like tablets do.
Surely it's more due to lobbyists corrupting the anti-corruption measures demanded by taxpayer groups.
The chart doesn't show "employee or consumer" connecting to the portal / web site, instead connecting directly to the administration interface, customer service, and financial services (last two of which, based on the gradient, I assume have shared responsibilities between carriers and states, which implies another unspecified interface..).
Maybe they just didn't think the web portal was important, because the consumers would hook directly (via implanted electrodes with network port? I assume that would be covered....) to lower level interfaces.
My reading was that his claim is that there are a number of characteristics that may be considered "psychopathic" and it may be beneficial to have each of them in the population, but that it is not advantageous to have members in the population exhibiting all of those characteristics.
Cost of electricity is a red herring. The appropriate thing to do for powered parking spaces is to meter it to the car owner. Much a gasoline pump, you would swipe your card before it would activate. I'm confident that charging stations like this already exist.
Not really. There are factors holding the price at the pump to the $3-4 range. One of them is that uptake of electric cars would be higher if the price of fuel was much past the break-even point on cost for electrics. OPEC wants more money, but they don't want to kill their market.
