Um... didn't we learn something from the abhorrence of google glass. I'd tolerate being in the room with someone wearing these as long as I knew ti was painful for the wearer to use them and put them in visible agony when they were activated. I'm thinking something like glass shard ear pieces and a 50Kv electro shock to the brain when turned on for ten seconds.
Wait till Mr. Robot becomes an editor. Oh don't worry about that friend, you see we hired Allsafe to keep it secure. (Alf walks by the background).
you can pay for various speeds of shipping. As people use the priority ones more the slower ones get slower as there are less gaps to insert the slow ones into and they get even slower.
everyone knows this.
When I buy an item, I will pay more to get it directly from Amazon or from a seller that ships through Prime. That way I don't get screwed if there is something wrong.
Totally agree. Amazon's satisfaction policy is reasonable and uniform, so no surprises or hassles trying to save a dollar.
Here's something that puzzles me about their search algorithm. The first search will pull up "most, relevant" items. And you quickly scan the first pag or two for the cheapest version and find something you like. Then you switch to "lowest price first" sort order. And when you do this something really odd happens. That item you found using the relevancy search is often not there at all???? That is to say as you scroll down pass the irrelevant cheap stuff listed first eventually you reach the price point of the item you saw before and it's simply not there.
This also works in the reverse direction too. Sometimes a cheap item doesn't show up in the relevancy search as well. This I sort of understand: it must not have been indexed with the right key words so it gets knocked out of the relevancy search.
But the other direction I can't fathom. Why would a relevant item not show up in the price sort?
A cynical person might think they were trying to hide the cheap items from you but I sincerely doubt that.
I think that it just means the people who hear it are Parselmouthed and can hear the inner basilisk spell that runs the A10.
than later when there's a huge code base.

The FAA had previously said they can't ban it till the CPS recalls it. That made little sense to me but I could see why that might be the case. The FAA can't just pass judgement on things they are qualified to pass judgement on. And when does it graduate from anecdotal?
But as you point out, e-bay Replacement Batteries are notorious for not meeting their own specs and deteriorating rapidly. It does make you wonder.
But in this case we had 43 reported fires in a relatively small market in a very short time. The do seem to be bombs.
What I wonder about is why half charing them makes any difference. Half a bomb? they said the mechanism was terminals pressed too close together. SO what difference does the charge level make
Between Eric Bachman's hype and Gilfoyle's latent satanic easter eggs I think I'll wait to see if this actually works. But it's nice to see them beating Hooli.
If they keep adding stars pretty soon the sky is going to be brilliantly light at night and we'll have to sleep during the day.
I find this absolutely reprehensible. I truly wonder why people put up with this. It's one thing to not care that google tracks you. I don't mind. But I'd be absolutely incensed if I had no way to prevent it and I'm locked into a 2 year contract with no way to have a usable phone and usable maps without granting google this prying eye. One of my kids has a phone which doesn't even allow google play to be turned off (the phone relies on it). Each week we notice data charges when he has used no data. When we trace their origin, it's google play. Now I know why.
The problem is battery terminals manufactured too close together. Why does having 40% less stored energy make the problem any better?
"I didn't have time to write a short letter so I wrote a long one", is an old aphorism. Writing tightly and editing concisely takes skill and wit. Hemingway once wrote the shortest novel on a dare: "For Sale: Baby shoes, Never worn."
Some phones bend in your pocket, other kill you in your sleep or bring down a 747 when they catch fire. Seems sort of all the same to me.
I recently got a chance to see someone using unbuntu inside linux and I'm curious how this works. Is it running a virtual machine or re-implementing the low level system calls or what? If it needs to talk to the network or use a USB device is it a virtual connection to the Windows Drivers or does the linux have to have it's own drivers.
Finally, since it's ubuntu does this mean I could give it a linux Mint character or is that pointless since it is using Windows as the desktop
