Internet access in our society is now a need because more and more official documents are sent by mail, official information is only available through internet and job offers are more and more only on internet. Now, you say that a family who can barely buy enough food to feed them should throw 29.95 a month (~1 week of food for a poor family of 4) to be able to find jobs and communicate? Get out of your mom basement and look out what it mean to being poor. Go to your nearest association who help poor people and ask them and you will see that even a 9$ internet connection is weighting a lot in some poor family budgets.
A 5$ one-time reduction on their bill for checking the opt-in of this fabulous promotion !!!
It's been a week that Firefox implemented it (ie: Firefox 52)
Expert systems work very well for well defined problems where experts can analyze their own reasoning without resorting to gut feeling.
In Go playing there was some tentative to create expert systems to reduce the size of the tree but it failed because all of the best Go players were unable to explain why they played this move more than any other move without saying that they feel it was the best move to do excepted for 'technical' move where the complete sequence could be calculated and every variation eliminated like for Tesuji and Yose. The best Go (AlphaGo) program doesn't use expert system but neural networks.
That's why in my previous job I always tripled my estimates and made sure that my colleagues make so too.
Go study ergonomics. Go measure your biometrics. Go compute the load factors and necessary structural supports. Go design the contours and material attachments required to make something that is perfectly comfortable for you, rather than just cribbing someone else's work.
I have build my own bed. The only thing I have measured is the bedspring I was reusing from my old bed. For the rest, I have put together some plank in a way the my bed look like a japanese bed. (eg: no mine, but similar). What is its load factor? I really don't know, I just put some wood plank together. What where the structural support needed? I really don't know, I just put thing in a way that everything stuck together thank to gravity and need no nails or screws.
Then if it happens to look like a commercial design, you have a nice solid legal ground to stand on and say "I made this on my own".
My bed look like any commercial design of japanese bed for sure. If a company come after me saying I have stolen their design, I still can say "I made it on my own", but if I need to prove that I am fucked up because the only proof I have is my own saying and that will not stand before a court.
If you should remove every pokemon in a zone of half a block around any sex offender, due to the size of the sex offender list there is no more place you can put a pokemon on the map of the USA
The keyword is "being confirmed". It take time to confirm that a truck running over people is a criminal act and not 'just' an accident.
But in the end this demonstrate that this application is completely un-useful...
One productive use I see is to run this password database against the company logins to check if one is in this list to ask the user to change it. Because sooner or later, and most probably sooner, a hacker will do the same...
I have fought my IT department to keep my 1600x1200 monitor and not to upgrade to these newfangled 1920x1080 monitor for these fucking 120 pixels. 120 pixels are 8 more line of code on my screen.
I did felt for this kind of trap myself. I did bough a netatmo thermostat for my home. I though it was some kind of home thermostat with an integrated web server for use with my tablet. But actually that thing connect to the internet to the netatmo servers
