Just because we can still understand it doesn't mean we should let people get away with bad writing. If people keep writing badly, this new bad form becomes the new standard.
I agree! We stop people from misusing the words "bad" and "badly".
And because there will be so much information out there, the value placed on individual pieces of information will be that much lower. I mean, the bottom line is when you have access to all the information about everyone, no one really cares that much that you had a bad breakup in '09 or that your appendix burst back in '11. Because that kind of shit happens to everyone.
Why store and keep it if it's worthless? It must have value to someone inorder for it to be stored, there ain't no such thing as a free lunch. And why is it that every description of this future includes everyone having access to everything? What gives a total stranger any right to know anything about me? If I don't want to share it, then it's no one's business.
I care because it increases the cost of the device, increases electrical consumption in operating the device (again, costing more money), generates extra heat which shortens the lifespan of the electronics, creates possible failure points which could cause electrical shorts/interference with other parts of the device. Then there's the software aspect, bugs which require patching, "features" which can't be turned off, slowness in turning the device on and off, advertising when no signal is present, etc.
I want my devices to be smart, not my displays. I want my displays to be interoperable through several generations of devices.
And it contains a microphone that is always on waiting for you to say something important or incriminating.
I didn't catch his name. What was it again?
That would be Frederick County Councilman Kirby Delauter.
no Also, wouldn't a star near the oort cloud mess up our entire solar system?
It seems like things would get quite messy if HIP 85605 has a planetary system of it's own. An Oort cloud equivelant would be getting perrty darm close.
Call me when you can 3D print single-walled hydrogen oxide tubes or 2D print a single atom thickness sheet of deuterium oxide.
Uhmmm, wouldn't that be di-hydrogren oxide?
He's just unhappy they aren't eating Quisp instead.
Would any of the "kids" here even know about Quisp? That was a long time ago...
When it's no longer an option, but a mandatory feature it becomes a lot cheaper per unit.
When the estimates come from the same State that mandates their use, the cost per unit can become amizingly low.
On the shortest day of the year, sunset is just after 4:30 PM here. Sunrise is 7:15. I see maybe 30 minutes of sunlight in a given day during that time of the year. I work in a basement office with no windows.
Just wait! Any day now they're going to remove you from the payroll.
They're just waiting for someone to fix the glitch. Remeber to take the red stapler with you as a parting gift.
