This is brilliant, mind if I pass it around?
Um, this is AT&T using deep packet inspection to deny certain content. There is no great conspiracy here between Apple and AT&T
Not for this feature they don't, there is an option to enable FaceTime over cellular, the provider config is able to set this flag.
My mother, now aged 85, learned to type using a printed picture of a keyboard, and exercises very similar to "Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing". Its true there is no record of what keys you actually press, etc, but she could type a lot faster than I ever could, and is using an IPad as I type this.
My point is: stop being obsessed with technology: anyone in the third world can have a photocopy of a picture of a keyboad, and probably has the motivation to try and learn with it. Once a week, use a real machine to test their progress if you have to. (Yes I have visited third world countries).
That won't work. I speak from personal experience (borned & raised in a third world country). I learned typing with a mechanical typewriter. You have to have a physical feedback from the type writer to develop the necessary muscle memory.
You also need paper to see that you are typing, and to see if you are doing it right or wrong. And when you commit errors, you need to see how often you made them and where on the keyboard layout. Finally you develop the speed to type with a high degree of correctness.
You. Will. Never. Ever. Get. That. With. A. Picture. Of. A. Keyboard.
You need an actual keyboard, mechanical or otherwise.
I don't agree, I learned to type over 35 years ago on a keyboard diagram, then a manual typewriter and then moved to an IBM Selectric in high school. Modern computer keyboards require almost no real finger strength and virtual keyboards require NO finger strength. Typing is learned by rote exercise, my mother didn't want me breaking her typewriter so she had me practice on the diagram until I knew where most of the letters where.
Right, they have to make it reasonably accessible, but they can still dock you for time if you are over your allowed break minutes.
Nope, all employees must be paid for breaks that are under 20 minutes. Well, at least in the US.
And if the app were go abroad and ever passed on information to foreigners which was under government quarantine that would be espionage. They would need to be insane to provide that app outside the United States under almost any circumstance.
Seriously? The application that was banned was relaying information from the U.K.'s Bureau of Investigative Journalism. The source data is ALREADY coming from outside the United States.
It happened a long time ago. No one had anything to do with it.
It's in Tennessee, God put it there.
Square seems to be going for the paypal market - being a middle-man between the credit card companies and the merchants.
Just like with paypal, I cannoth fathom why the credit card companies would allow this to go on without offering a similar service themselves, and I also cannot understand how it could possibly be anything but more expensive per transaction for the merchant.
The difference is that Square is actually a Merchant Service Provider, for all intents and purposes, they ARE the credit card company. Paypal is more like an escrow service. I own a small business and have a merchant service account through a decent provider, the rates are pretty good and the money shows up in my bank pretty quickly. After reviewing services like Square and Intuit's GoPayment I realized that once I factor in the monthly fee I'm currently paying my provider, any fees associated with my POS terminal as well as yearly compliance fees I can get a MUCH better rate by using Square or GoPayment (I decided to go with GoPayment because of the integration with QuickBooks).
Aren't the examiners ever reviewed? There's nothing inherently novel in doing things on a wireless device that's already being done on a Piece of Paper.
Fixed that for you
