You're going to be installing software that they don't know that has low level access to the hardware and could potentially harm it. Voiding the warranty makes sense to me- they can't be responsible for harm done by software they can't control. It doesn't apply to apps, because the apps don't allow direct hardware access except through the APIs Google has written and tested.
Also, nice to know you consider Huffington Post and local news stations such as KGW to be as unreliable as Fox. Never claim to be a liberal again to me, you're just another Conspiracy Theorist.
And they wouldn't be a threat if their privileged status wasn't endangered. Privilege exists for a REASON. Isn't it better to try to figure that reason out before destroying for the fun of it?
"close in age couples" in most states means less than three months difference, not three years difference. We now know the human brain doesn't stop developing for nearly twenty five years after birth, and there is a HUGE cognitive difference in understanding between a fifteen year old and an eighteen year old.

There still isn't a "magic number" that divides adulthood from childhood, the individual development of the prefrontal cortex can be complete as early as 17, as late as 25, and the bell curve centers on 21.
But it isn't just "backwater prudes" either, there actually is some science behind it.
Except nobody's feet are exactly 1 foot. Nor is anyone's 1000 paces exactly 1 mile. If those were truly universal measurements, you'd have some point. As they're not, you don't. And in the long term we'd save money by being on the same system as literally every other country in the world by removing the possibility of tooling mistakes, idiocies like NASA Orbiter problem, and additional cost to companies trying to sell in the US of having to have both measurements in their workflows and computer systems.
I've got an '01 Ford. MPH only, I'm pretty sure. A few years older than that, but not absurdly old to be on the road.
I thought I had read elsewhere that the chemicals she used were from school. I can't confirm, but given the tiny amounts that isn't suspension or expulsion worthy- its worthy of a slap on the wrist for not getting permission.
I've done a bit of everything (firmware, mobile, back end systems, etc), but admittedly have never set up a distributed message queue. I did work at Amazon for 2 years, they didn't use Rabbit or AMQP for their middleware at that time. No idea if they do now or not. But I have friends who do that stuff and talk shop frequently, and they've never mentioned either. I wonder if its not quite as big as you think it is.
The updated kernel gives the BeagleBone Black access to a new Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) display driver architecture
Shame about that PowerVR GPU, I don't see it ever actually being able to take advantage of the newer display architecture. I do like the move towards Device Tree. If it gains traction it might actually be possible to treat ARM boards more like x86 boards, rather than needing the board-specific kernels we have to deal with now.
A computer scientist is someone who fixes things that aren't broken.
