I wish I was joking.
Which is why they want kids to "learn computers" in Kindergarten.
No doubt, the earlier we expose kids to real programming (as opposed to the drag-and-drop programming equivalent of the old Radio Shack "hundred-in-one electronics projects" kits that Code.org keeps touting as some sort of mythical progress), the higher quality programmers we'll eventually turn out; but that doesn't mean you'll see a substantial increase in the number of people who can, and can stand to, code.
Early exposure might mean a few more people realize they have what it takes to code, but programming is hard, despite all the rose-scented farts Google, Microsoft et al keep encouraging us to sniff. The vast majority or people have neither the aptitude nor the patience to ever master the relevant skills.
As has been widely repeated by good, left-thinking SJWs, Milo Yiannopoulos is a white nationalist alt-righter.
Here is a sample of his Nazi-inspired hate speech that must be banned with heroic acts of social-justice violence from all college campuses and internet forums:
"âoeAnd you shouldnâ(TM)t give a sh*t about skin color, you shouldnâ(TM)t give a shit about sexuality, you shouldnâ(TM)t give a sh*t about gender, and you should be deeply suspicious of the people who do,â he concluded."
Are you a young earth creationist who denies that humans existed during the optimum?
How can he be absolutely correct that the figure is meaningless if you found a meaning to the figure?
Well, I know this is Slashdot, but some of us can read beyond the subject line... He said, "45 years spread over a bunch of drives without a failure doesn't mean that we can expect any individual drive to last 45 years". That statement is entirely true.
Going further, most people will, charitably, choose to infer a context that makes sense when reading something that could otherwise seem untrue. If you're in a theater that has "Cool Hand Luke" playing, and yell that title to your friend across the room at the ticket counter - Only a "special" few would choose to interpret that as complimenting the fingers of some guy named Luke.
If you actually read what Apple reported rationally you find this:
1. The iPhone is successful.
2. The Mac segment is stagnating and frankly it's probably a healthy dose of RDF + iPhone tie-in as to why it's not in freefall considering how poorly Apple has treated it.
3. The iPads are actually in freefall and the RDF ain't working.
4. iWatch? There's a word for that: rounding error. And not a hugely profitable one.
KDE had support for dragging empty areas of windows IN WAYLAND back in the Mandrake days you say?
Dayum, their time-travel KIO part really does work well.
What do trade deals have to do with this?
Well, the quote to which I responded said "We're leaving the EU, but we still need you to give us free trade".
It would seem a bit odd to say "We're leaving the EU, but we still need you to give us free trade
I keep hearing variations on that line with regards to Brexit (though the same would apply for any EU country sick of the EU's games, Ireland included), and just don't "get" it...
The US has free trade agreements with plenty of countries, despite not having given those countries the slightest hint of power to dictate what US law can or cannot do domestically. Why would a (former) EU country not have the ability to negotiate similar trade deals, totally in isolation from the immigration bullshit the EU seems intent to ram down its members' unwilling throats?
I'm sure Apple is quite pleased that an EU commission can decide laws for Ireland and decide if Irish laws are "legal" or not. After all, a democratically elected parliament that passes the laws sounds like Nazism to me.
We are Microsoft. Unix is irrelevant. Openness is futile. Prepare to be assimilated.
