I spend my time updating the iPhone app, and then the facebook program isn't available yet if Florida. Not quite ready for primetime.
Back in the mid 90's I was detained at the Canadian border for 2-3 hours (I was driving into Canada) while on a camping trip. I had just graduated from college, and decided to go camping in North Dakota and Southern Canada just for fun. I was stopped, taken upstairs, repeatedly asked questions where a customs offer would come in the room, ask me if I had ever been to prison, been in front of a judge, how much money did I have, did I have a job, etc. She would leave for a few minutes, would come back and ask me similar to identical questions while typing on her computer, leave and come back...repeated for almost 2 hours. Then they took me down to my truck and searched everything, took apart my camping equipment, took a keen interest in my first aid kit, but found nothing (there was nothing to find) and let me go. I was detained for 2-3 hours just because.
On my way back into the USA, they barely batted an eye.
Agreed. I can see the usefulness of a basic calculator for math and simple operations, which can be found in extremely cheap china versions for less than $1 each. One solution my professors had for the complicated calculations problems on exams was to make the math extremely easy, as what they were testing was your ability to do the calculation, not whether you could calculate 1.84523*32.344/422.33... so they'd make it into a problem where the math was more like 2*6/4.
What if the kids did hack their calculators, install inappropriate notes, and cheat on their exams? It would be inconvenient for the teachers to reflash/reformat/reset each calculator, and be sure that the student wasn't still cheating. The teacher's only solution would be to purchase additional TI calculators for exam purposes only. A win-win for TI!
I'd be willing to take it for him!
While this is cool, this article just looks like a simple advertisement to sell their bikes. How is this newsworthy? It's not like this is a website with designs on how to make your own, or how to pimp your existing bike, or even about the cool technology put into the bike. It's a simple like to buy one on Ebay.
The iPhone can't multitask? I've been multitasking for months now on my iPhone 3Gs, been tethering on AT&T, been using folders to organize my many applications, been able to lock rotation, all without a hitch. Granted I had to jailbreak the device (crazy easy to do with Blackra1n), but it works great!
The iOs update has nothing to do with AT&T's network. It's installed via iTunes, not over-the-air.
As a physician myself (well I'll have my MD next year), there is more to a diagnosis than a simple test/analysis. The most important part of any diagnosis is the "History of Present Illness" as well as the physical exam. Knowing when to use certain tests, and how to interpret them in the light of the particular patient's present condition is what makes medicine an art as well as a science. I think the idea of a camera taking a picture of a dermatologic problem being a great tool, but it won't be able to make a conclusive diagnosis. Many tests are not black and white, yes or no answers to a problem...they themselves contain errors, which if interpreted incorrectly can lead to further harm to the patient. I think it's going to be awhile before we have an AI doctor like "The Doctor" from the Star Trek Voyager series.
You and I both know, no matter what comes out...no matter how bad and damning the evidence is against BP...the USA taxpayer and consumer will bear the brunt of the cost of the cleanup. BP is too big to prosecute! They have too much influence with the government, have too many lawyers, and have an unlimited supply of $$$ to do what they want. I'm not shocked or surprised at what BP knew, but I will be shocked if they are held accountable in the end.
