But sure America, go and screw with them, because FREEDOM.
From my experience it seems that the reason for most phone searches on the Canadian side are to make sure that you aren't dodging taxes when you bring something in to the country.
Actually, no. It's generally for two other purposes -
1) People who claim they are not coming to Canada to work / move here, but who are entering the country with all of their worldly belongings. The CBSA will search a phone to find emailed job offers, texts from friends saying "Have a great new life in Canada!", photos from going-away parties and calendar appointments with entries like "first day at new job."
2) Child pornography. If you're typically a single, 40ish, dweebyish, white male travelling home alone from a vacation in a region in Asia know for child sex tourism you may get pulled aside and have your phone and computer searched for incriminating pictures.
why not just publish paper-only stuff?
Limits your market. Lots of people don't want to buy a paper book - They want an e-version for their e-reader.
Plus it's a 'greener' choice - No dead trees.
But he doesn't exclusively do e-books.
But how is the poor, poor metallica going to survive then? I mean god, they have to do concerts now! Won't someone please think of the poor metallica!
Hey Anonymous Coward, my brother is an author.
When someone steals an e-book of his work, how does he put bread on the table?
Should he "do" book-reading concerts?
How the fuck do you or anyone else know that the people in question are okay?
You look at them, you interview them, and you use common sense. You interview the family of these girls - If her dad is a dentist fleeing terror then you put a tick in the "not dangerous" box:
For God's sake, where did all this American cowardice come from? You're the strongest nation in the world. Read your Statue of "Liberty" and prove it.
And frankly, all this talk of 'safety' when it comes to suffering people is infuriating. If Trump truly wanted to make Americans "safe" he'd be pushing deep and meaningful gun control. He'd be supporting initiatives to reduce pollution and improve workplace safety in places like coal mines. He'd be pushing for clean drinking water in places like Flint, and working to improve highway safety. He'd beef up the FDA and inspect the food chain. He'd provide support to battered women and children.
Those are the things that make you unsafe - Not bogey-man refugee terrorists.
He demonstrates leadership in none of these things - Which proves he's not interested in keeping Americans 'safe' - He's just interested in keeping people like you scared.
If people from all these countries are so safe that these companies consider it worth risking American lives for them
The people are safe - The countries aren't.
Why do you think families are desperate to leave Syria? Because it isn't safe. Doesn't mean the people who want to leave are unsafe.
That's why you want to hire smart people from Syria, not open an office in Syria.
What kind of idiot leaves their bluray player connected to the internet?
My Sony Blu-Ray is plugged into my home network - It's also a DLNA client feeding my TV and sound system. Now and again it updates its firmware, but it's never not played a movie so it could show me an ad.
DVD sales are "ok", because the media and platform doesn't suck like Blu-ray
What're you talking about? My six-year-old puts in the Cars 2 Blu-Ray, presses play and starts eating Cheerios and watching his movie.
I can only get dial up here. It takes me 10 hours to download a 10 MB PDF.
10 hours? Even at 28.8 you should be able to get 10 megs in under an hour...
Check his DNA. He's still a male, regardless of whatever the surgeons did.
The personal pronoun refers to her gender, not her sex.
So while at the 'DNA' level she may still have male sex attributes, her gender is female, so "she / her" is appropriate.
the vast majority of films don't need to be watched more than once.
Spoken by an Anonymous Coward who obviously doesn't have children. My six-year-old boy is on what must be his 863rd viewing of his Angry Birds movie DVD.
Time to take stock. Go home with some office supplies.
