I used to, but legal streaming wins out in convenience for me, and I have a decent job.
But my point is that even with multiple services, it makes sense to give up on cable.
I pay about $5/month over what I would for basic cable + HBO (I have Hulu, Netflix, HBO). I still find it better than cable.
I save myself a box and a remote, it's worth the $5 for that reason alone.
It's rarely mentioned how these later waves likely destroyed previous cultures in the Americas, such as the Clovis people
So you're saying that today's Native Americans are carrying a "red guilt"?
Also, I think Netflix is driving down the price.
$10 vs $15 for HBO (they are similar in quality of new output IMO).
I don't get why ad supported has failed with streaming services, but it seems to have (I would think advertisers would live to be able to buy their ads more targeted for demographic, but they seem to have lumped streaming with Youtube and not with TV as far as ad purchasing goes, and therefore don't pay a premium (or enough of one to make it sustainable).
And jogging and bicycling increases your chances to get fatally hit by an automobile, train or plane.
I wondered about that a while back, so I did some investigation into the odds. It turned out that the risk of riding a bike is in the same ballpark as riding in a car when measured on a per-hour basis.
While the risks aren't insignificant, they turned out to be clearly better than the risk of being out of shape and keeling over prematurely from a heart attack or similar problem.
I do avoid some of the things that probably skew the cycling risk numbers higher, such as riding at night, or riding on hilly country roads that lack shoulders.
It isn't about exposing all or none, it's about trying to expose it all or none.
I see no evidence that WL is partisan though, there's no evidence that they turn down offered leaks for political reasons.
Also, I don't see them targeting the US disproportionately. Aside from size and power.
It also depends on how it fails vs people.
If a doctor is 90% correct, but this this only gives false negatives, this + doctor could be used to save lives by using an OR style process in determining more aggressive treatment.
It if it's 80% accurate when never giving an uncertain answer, but very accurate when allowed a certainty interval but passing on making a determination on 20% of the cases it could at the very least act as a check against doctors that missed something.
Additionally, if only false positives it could perhaps be used as a first screening saving doctor time (and therefore healthcare money) by having them only fully examine instances where it gives a positive.
These types of diagnostic engines are starting to be used in animal care so I'm sure they'll be well vetted (ugh, a pun) before used largely on humans.
A touch more, but not much (I remember paying $3-5 for new releases, a 2-3 days), and the back catalog varies, but outside of deals is close (http://www.vudu.com/movies/#!content/4798/Vertigo $2-4 for 3-5 days back in time)
Here's UK rental prices over time, I seem to be in the ballpark. https://stephenfollows.com/the...
Sure, it's a one day rental now, but you don't need the extra time to return it, so that seems reasonable to me.
Definitely more expensive than Netflix by mail, but in the ballpark of rental stores I think
It's not every time they watch (at least with Netflix), it's every time they relicense. Netflix is smart and doesn't want to disincentivize itself from having people actually use the service, they want their customers to use it every free moment (it allows Netflix to charge more in the end).
Netflix wants to be able to be an all you can eat service, and that requires them not having per view fees.
There would be a return (for the producer) every time Netflix reups with something, but there's that with format changes too.
Is an insider release not the equivalent of an alpha or beta release?
I've used plenty of Linux alpha and beta distros with some pretty big bugs.
The food in the buffet is inedible - I wouldn't feed it to hogs.
That's funny... that's exactly what they do.
I saw a segment on some TV show a few years ago that featured a guy who collects the abundant leftover buffet food from Las Vegas hotels, mixes it all together, and then delivers it to hog farms. The animals did seem to be enjoying it quite a bit.
You can't pay the rent or eat with a free download. And your job is at risk - you not only can be replaced, it's pretty much certain you will be replaced. And with more people competing for jobs where humans haven't yet been replaced, do you really think you're immune? Nobody - not even politicians, judges, lawyers, cops, and soldiers - are immune.
Sorry to say you're missing an important part of reality/politics - politicians, rich people, leaders, etc., will in fact be immune. They have power, and even if they choose not to prevent change from happening, you can be damned sure they'll be insulated from any ill effects that change brings.
Some people (good people) will be working towards helping the rest of the population adapt to the changes, but they're getting drowned out by people yelling "everybody is bad! nobody can be trusted!" at the moment. (Gee, I wonder who benefits from that?)
