Yes, I agree. I had no idea how Amazon would still be around today "back then."
While I certainly how no idea how big they would get, I was pretty quickly convinced they'd be around for the long haul because they were pouring money left and right into infrastructure. While the rest of the bubble industry was buying $1000 chairs and throwing $2000/head parties - Amazon was buying land and building warehouses and distribution centers.
I only wish I hadn't talked myself into selling my shares when they went past $100 a few years back.
Donald Trump broke this place.
Not really, no.
Then Gamergate happened.
Within a few months,
I guess you missed where he clearly stated that it was the post office (specifically, Deutsche Post) which was responsible for the manner in which the packages were taped together, not the sendor *or* the recipient.
I guess you missed the part where the sender did a crappy job of packaging - and the Deutsche Post had to do the best they could with the pile of shit he dropped on their counter.
CPU time is perfectly well defined, though only really meaningful in terms of absolute value if you also give the relevant CPU you're talking about (obviously, 1 hour on a 386 and 1 hour on a modern Xeon are orders of magnitude difference levels of computation). Incidentally, they don't give the CPU used for the attack, as due to the fact they used cloud infrastructure the CPU time was spread over many different kinds of CPUs, but their "average CPU" unit reference is a 2.3Ghz Xeon E5-2650v3 (and for GPUs, they again used a spread of kinds, but they give the number of 114 years of device time for a cluster of K20s).
loose it for another couple weeks it will be worth 20!
How much looser could it get?
USPS DID loose the package!
They they also lose your elementary school text books in transit right at that critical moment when your teacher was trying to get you to understand the difference between "loose" and "lose?"
the box was sitting in a Atlanta for over a month
Which was probably the same week when you'd have been learning about using "an" in front of words that start with vowels, though that still doesn't help that sentence make any more sense. An Atlanta what?
the recipient who's address is on the box
The recipient who is address on the box? Or did you mean "whose?"
It's getting pretty bad out there. It's a good thing people are spending thousands of dollars and hours reviving old 8-bit video games! Whew!
Maybe once angry displaced workers start attacking and killing robots I'll have the same reaction.
Waaaay to late on that score. The legend goes, the term "sabotage" comes from workers in the Industrial Revolution throwing their wooden shoes (called "sabots") into the machines which were replacing them.
The problem with their logic is, of course, that the police aren't forcing anyone to buy an Alexa device.
o.0 That's not a problem with their logic - that's something utterly irrelevant that you've pulled out of thin air.
If I choose to purchase a device that, by design, records everything I say, then I've voluntarily sacrificed my right to privacy in exchange for the benefits afforded by the device.
That's an assertion on your part, not a fact.
It's not the police's fault that I've done so, and they're entirely within their rights to seek a warrant for the information that I've served up on a platter.
Yes... and no. The police certainly are within their rights to seek a warrant to obtain information so long as is it relative to the case. They may not however use warrants to conduct fishing expeditions on the off-chance that information might be found that might be relevant to the case. Though they phrase it in First Amendment terms, that's the heart of Amazon's argument - they police have not established that the recordings are material to the case, and thus have no legal right to make a blanket request for private information.
What happens is that when people don't get punished for the first few things, they start to realize that the normal limits don't apply, and the bad sorts start pushing the envelope. Eventually
beat an underperforming employee's head in with a baseball bat
Everyone knows that only liberal protesters at places like Berkeley and anti-Trump events are allowed to talk about and do that sort of thing.
