True, but I've already "discovered" those.

All I listen to on Apple Music are various electronic/dance genres and some metal. Apple Music has been great for manual discovery of new and leading edge music. You'd like a recommendation engine could run with that, right?
Naw. Apple Music also knows I'm an early 40s white guy and instead keeps telling me I should listen to prog rock, 80s pop, and the occasional "safe-for-old-people" new artist.
I suspect this will work out just as well. No, no.. don't watch Orphan Black or Dark Matter, you really should just be watching Seinfeld and Frasier reruns!
I'd be surprised, but this is such a common pattern with Google/Alphabet (which I will refer to as Google for the rest of this post) when they try anything that's not Ad/Search related that it's more of a *meh*.
Google Health, that Energy project that they seem to have wiped from search results, Google+, Google Glass, and so on. They put a huge amount of upfront capital into these projects and hype to hell out of them only to abandon them when they realize that it takes effort to build new, ground breaking businesses. Not everything will be handed to them like ads/search was. From that I can tell, it also seems to be a function of internal champions - one person drives these projects and when they lose interest, the projects die.
From the tech eco-system's perspective, this is frustrating. As soon as Google announces one of these projects, everyone assumes they'll succeed and competition is stifled. Investors don't want to compete against Google. I run a genomic informatics company. Google Genomics is making noise in this space and every time we talk to investors or customers, we inevitably spend 5-10 minutes talking about Google. My stock response is to walk them through Google's past efforts with non-Ad/Search products and ask them if they're willing to risk Google losing interest.
Google has an important place in the tech world, but they still act like a tween trying to fit in.
The ideal solution is a force sensitive keyboard. It has one key. What
character is generated depends on how hard you hit it. You could add vectors to it for unicode, too!
I'm a genius. I expect a recruiting call from Apple by tomorrow!
What kind of stupidity does it take to not be able to tell the difference between humor and trolling? Who are the idiots on this site nowadays that downvote posts as "troll" just because they are too dumb to understand or appreciate them, or just don't agree with them?
Yeah I'm an old timer. I don't come to this site that often any more. But even more troubling than the slide to mediocrity of the story editing and selection (which happened in the mid-2000's by the way, and unfortunately never improved), is the increasing stupidity of the Slashdot readership. Or perhaps it's really just a part of the overall trend of this new generation not being able to handle any viewpoint they don't agree with without furious downvoting.
I wouldn't call Fat Tire beer either.
It may be more entertaining than men's soccer, if you're into soccer (I'm not), but it's hard for me to get past the fact that the best women's teams in the world (the ones that win the world cups and olympics and such) can be easily beaten by their own national under-17 boy's teams.
I don't know why exactly, but knowing that the people I am watching are only competitive in the sport because of gender segregation, takes some of the excitement away for me.
There's no proof that it has anything to do with Wikileaks, but in a world of IoT devices with no thought toward security, anyone who cares to do so can mount DDOS with the power of a national entity.
What's the point of doing what Assange and Wikileaks have been doing without any moral position? He isn't helping his own case.
No, of course it is not legal to set a trap to intentionally hurt someone, even if you expect that the trap could only be activated by the person committing property theft or vandalism. Otherwise, you'd see shotguns built into burglar alarms.
Fire alarm stations sometimes shoot a blue dye which is difficult to remove or one which only shows under UV. Never stand in front of one when pulling the lever! But they are not supposed to hurt you.
And of course these booby traps generally are not as reliable as the so-called "inventor" thinks and tend to hurt the innocent.
As the candidate running for president has a leadership role in the party, and leadership makes the party views, they are by definition conservative views when expressed as view of conservative leadership.
No, actually, that's not how it works. Trump is not a conservative. The Republican party, which, although it does include some conservative politicians, is not run by conservatives.
They are ugly, selfish, repugnant views that most people find abhorrent, but they cannot simply be written off as "no true scotsman.
You might be surprised to find people on the other side of the aisle find your views just as ugly, selfish, and repugnant, though they aren't far enough down the authoritarian rabbit hole to try to censor your speech. They will come around eventually, though, if you and your ilk persist.
Nuclear power has more than 0 casualties in actual fact during its 60 year history. It's not comparable to coal or oil obviously, but lying is not required.
In the spirit of the first post that pointed out the mist from the cooling tower wasn't "steam", I'd like to point out that nuclear power has never caused a single death because all deaths are caused by lack of oxygen flowing to the brain.
He keeps differentiating, flying off on a tangent.
