The bada OS has a variety of sensors, including accelerometers, tilt, weather, proximity and activity.
Now, please explain how an OS can possess sensors?
That's because of the way you do it. Every single of your nuclear plants is most probably completely different from all the others, maintenance is also probably done by many different companies... every new plant is built like it was the first one you ever built, and every plant is maintained like it was the only one you had, so you never make economies of scale (but each politician who builds a plant gets to please a friend's company, yay).
NB: I'm just guessing for Ontario, based on how things are often done in North America and observations from an uncle whose job is to check the safety of nuclear plants.
Well, it has been standardised for a long time. Decimal separator is either a comma or a period (with a comma being recommended) and the thousands separator is either nothing or a space.
But if you bought things in Montreal and went back to the US, you must have seen at the border the papers you have to fill and send to QuÃ©bec and Canada to have your GST and TVQ refunded. So you simply paid the same as if you had bought these things in your country.
International law is quite clear and simple on this matter, unless there are special agreements (like in the EU) taxes should be collected by the country you live in, not the country you bought goods from, and if you buy things abroad, you should be refunded taxes by the foreign country, and pay taxes at home.
