Do they get destroyed or re-sold? If they're re-sold, how cheap will they be?
You are correct, however the concern is what happens when large parts of the workforce become essentially unemployable. Increased productivity and free trade are good things, but they do create winners and losers. We need to be more mindful of the losers and help them adjust to the changes.
I'm glad I don't use AT&T and dropped Verizon a few years back. Can't be sure, but I bet CREDO will be very unlikely to do this sort of thing.
Credo is an MVNO running on the Verizon network. Therefore, Verizon can do exactly the same monitoring of your calls as they do with those of their own customers.
And a trip from Texarkana to Atlanta.
You realize why, right? Those people think it's wrong to give Trump money.
I think Peter Thiel is an asshole, and I'm happy to give any company shit that employs him or takes money from him or helps him in any way. That's my right. Your right is to think the same about Zukerberg. Don't use Facebook. Don't give him or any company he has an interest in any money directly or indirectly. That's completely fine by me.
force them to arrest you
So, effectively ruin your life? By doing that, you not only get into databases that you might have had some chance avoiding otherwise, you also fuck over your chances of ever having a decent job again (unless you happen to be in a career such as activist or journalist where getting arrested is respected instead of condemned). HR departments are too stupid and lazy to know or care about the difference between getting arrested because you're a criminal and getting arrested because the police are criminals.
In the totalitarian police state of America, it's injustices all the way down.
If you could set it up to require a password and the presence of the key provided by the watch, that would be nice.
Yeah, and that does suck for those people. They do it by the book and a bunch of people who don't are not punished. Its the same thing when there is intentional inflation and monetary devaluation. Plenty of people save their money and do it right, and then here comes inflation to wipe out their savings.
When too many people break the law, sometimes the best thing to do for the country as a whole is to declare amnesty. It isn't fair, but that's best for the country. We either give them amnesty, have them apply for citizenship, and maybe make them pay a tax penalty for a few years or spend billions of dollars deporting them. I don't like either option, but the status quo isn't acceptable either.
Why even bother screwing up the desert when we have millions of perfectly-good unused rooftops to fill up with panels first?
Would it have been possible for the Congressionally-approved design to have specified "steel meeting the ASME SA316 standard as it existed on X date" to head off the problem at the beginning? Also, did the ASME committee really care about the structural weakness or did some anti-nuclear member(s) of the committee realize it would screw over the reactor construction and do it on purpose?
One of nuclear's biggest problems is, it doesn't work very well small.
US or Russian naval officers would disagree with you. Or do you think the reactor on a submarine counts as "big?"
My VW runs on 100% biodiesel and is therefore closer to carbon-neutral than even the average electric vehicle. Keeping an old car in service also avoids the gigantic environmental cost of manufacturing a new one (which is even worse for modern EVs because lithium mining is a particularly nasty business).
So who's the assknob now? Pretty sure it's you, not me!
