Well, clearly they'd be making money hand over fist if it wasn't for Vine
Must admit I'm baffled by the uproar on Twitter. It was never that popular a service, and it sucked when your timelines were stuffed by autoplaying Vines, as they were when the service started and it was still novel.
And you ought to be free to make such decisions for your private associations. You ought not to be free to impose such restrictions on other property owners.
Unless the HOA has the rule at the time every single person in the neighborhood has moved in, then no, it shouldn't be able to make that decision.
HOAs are not democratic governments. They are only allowed to enforce the rules in their charters, and given the power they have, and the ease with which that power ends up being controlled by a tiny group of people, it's absolutely right they're limited in that way.
Bans on AirBNB need to be addressed through the democratic process.
Holy God, did someone actually come up with something useful HOAs can do?
I worked for @Home and ATTBI. ATTBI was 1500/128 which pissed off a TON of @Home customers.
Well, you're paying for what we computer people call "The Microsoft premium". As we all know, Microsoft's products aren't just designed to be powerful, but to have a design aesthetic that makes them just a little bit special compared to the competition. Apple has always been known for their powerful, but pedestrian, beige or gray thrown together boxes, with no thought given to how a device should look or feel or its usability. Whereas people buy Microsoft not just for the quality, but to own something a little special and little different from the boring old me-too machines from everyone else. A machine that looks friendly, and is friendly.
It's an ethos that may mean Microsoft only gets 2-3% of the market with its Lumia phones, or Zune music players, or Surface tablets, but it ends up getting the right 2-3%, discerning customers willing to pay more for a better product, who'll eventually influence those around them to do the same thing.
For more details, see my blog, Brave Plasma-sphere.
they would have utterly owned the market by doing that . Comcast and Time warner love to abuse small towns so they would have had a instant high percentage uptake.
If Putin doesn't want 1941 to happen again - or rather, don't want to be embroiled again in a terrible war, - why is his regime trying to make enemies of the most powerful nations in the world?
As little as four years ago, Russia was a moderately respected nation about which our major beefs were homophobia and an apparently state sponsored murder of a former citizen on foreign soil. Now it's government is lying about its involvement in shooting down planes full of civilians, building giant bombs, and, whether the Russian government hacked US emails or not, Putin's assets have certainly been out in front making use of the leaked materials in an obvious effort to smear the likely winner of the current US election - from "reporting" on emails depicted as critical of Clinton sent by her friends that were actually forwarded news articles to publishing doctored copies with faked headers in an attempt to make Clinton look like a racist.
This is not the behavior of a country worried about war. It's the behavior of a demagogue eager to make war more likely.
If you mean FORTRAN, COBOL, et al by "real language", yeah it might have been once except for the fact the PC's implementation (CAPS "LOCK" is actually CAPS REVERSE SHIFT ON LETTERS) is broken too. Anyone who just wants a useful capitalization button has been SooL for a while.
The "Search" key on Chromebooks can be search, it can be Caps Lock if you want that, or it can be Control or Alt. Google has made it configurable.
Been able to right click for decades.... Why do you guys that have zero experience with a MAC keep trying to bring that fake piece of info Up?
1. Apricot did the "Small display integrated with keyboard" thing with a bunch of their MS DOS machines in the 1980s. You could use it as a calculator, and apps could address it directly. It was a good idea, but the lack of it on the PC meant they quietly dropped the feature when they switched to making PC clones.
2. So they're losing Esc, but they're keeping the Caps Lock key? Even Google has the design sense to lose that.
Read the definition of fascism. It simply doesn't require racism.
Yes, it does. This is the umpteenthm time you've made this claim, and it's why I'm going to plonk you now. I've explained it to you. I've even linked to Mussolini's own words and actions on the subject. You've outstayed your welcome, using sophistry to push forward the utterly stupid claim that racism isn't part of fascism.
Just because the term was coined in the 1900s doesn't mean that it wasn't practiced before
Yes, it does. The term and the ideology were invented by Mussolini. Mussolini had some thoughts, he gave a name to them. He didn't announce "Hey guys, I've come up with yet another synonym for totalitarianism", which would have been pointless, given totalitarianism has plenty of synonyms already.
If she was such a big fan of democracy, why didn't she object to what the DMC was doing
Because what the DNC did was a non-scandal. You had people in a political organization admitting in emails that they preferred one candidate over another. That's called real life. The DNC leaks revealed little of substance beyond one issue DWS rightly resigned over that Clinton had no knowledge of.
Hillary also promotes violence (promoting war is certainly promoting violence)
Promoting war is not promoting violence against your political enemies. Osama Bin Laden has never run in an election against Hillary Clinton. Clinton has never declared war on Trump.
But if you want recent scapegoating, just look at her refusal to say that the leaked emails are true or fake, instead using the Russians as scapegoats to distract attention from the core issue)
As I've explained to you several times before, they're not her emails, and it would be incomprehensibly stupid for her to confirm something she has no control over is "genuine".
As far as the Russians go: she has protested that the Russians are involving themselves in the US election by committing illegal acts and leaking one side's emails. She's not the originator of that claim, that's the official position of the US government. She is entirely entitled to be pissed off that the Russians are trying to influence the US election, still worse by illegal means.
Suppression of truth and trying to control the story in the media counts. And she certainly did all she could do to defend Bill and attack his accusers when they were telling the truth.
No, it doesn't "count". Trying to control the story in the media is normal behavior for every politician, it's called spin. As for attacking her husband's accusers "when they were telling the truth" (which hasn't happened very often), she's entitled, as his wife, to believe him, and defend her husband.
You're zero for six, or maybe more than six, I've lost count, and you've become truly offensive. I appreciate trolling is your specialty, but this has gone far enough. One of the candidates at this election meets the definition of a fascist. The other is merely a little dishonest and a bit of a war monger. This election is - casting Clinton in the worst possible light and arguably far worse than the facts support - Mussolini vs Nixon, not Mussolini vs Franco.
Of course, you'd probably argue Nixon was a fascist too. But that's because apparently Canada's education system is just as terrible as that in the United States. Who knew.
Maybe the "tech community that come on Slashdot" is more literate than you? I never once said the emails came from Russia. I said that the Russian media took the emails Wikileaks released and posted false stories based upon garbled versions of them. That's a matter of public record.
and decide to pass another truck at 0.001mph in order to block all traffic for 10 miles?
Honestly if you are not passing by at least 4mph dont pass. they should let cops ticket truckers for passing without using their gas pedal.
There are no data that cannot be plotted on a straight line if the axis are chosen correctly.
