The situation in most of the USA is that it's been done using the worst possible mixture of laissez-fair capitalism and central planning. Vast amounts of taxpayer money have been poured into the infrastructure, yet that infrastructure is owned by a few companies and they have geographical monopolies and are now owned by their customers, so have no incentive to improve it. Oh, and regulator capture means that it's actually illegal to fix the problem in a lot of places. You can provide an incentive in several ways:
Alas, it's a shame that it doesn't mean anything. The point here is that the Earth has undergone many shifts in its climate, sometimes in a startlingly short period of time
Except that the difference in temperature between the peak of the Medieval Warm Period and the bottom of the Little Ice Age were significantly smaller than the difference between the current temperature and the bottom of the Little Ice Age. The last time we saw an increase in temperature equivalent to the last 200 years it was over a period of tens of thousands of years.
Go and read a news story about an area of science that you know about and compare it to what the original research actually claimed. Now realise that press reports about climate change are no more accurate than that and go and read some of the papers. The models have been consistently refined for the last century, but the predictions are refinements (typically about specific local conditions and timescales), not complete reversals. Each year, there are more measurements that provide more evidence to support the core parts of the models.
Oh, and I don't think the words objectivist or dualistic mean what you think they mean. You can't discard evidence simply by throwing random words into a discussion.
The results of this may be true, but if so, the results are quite sure to be solely based on average type of user and perhaps casing material.
Also iPhones are more likely to be used by people who couldn't be bothered to make a big decision out of their smartphone purchase, they just get what everybody else has and what they constantly hear about in the news and leave it at that. Hence many iPhones in the hands of people who aren't really thinking twice or being aware of the basics of treating hardware in a way that is less risky for it to break.
That many Androids have plastic as an enclosure helps mitigate the effects of a lot of drops, due to the flexibility. That alone could account for the difference, as all iPhones are built out of aluminum.
Points in case:
I've moved to Android with my last Smartphone and have the habit of getting my protection case and my protective glass *before* I purchase a new model.
In fact, the availability of a good/usable protective case and proctective glass is one of the criteria for me choosing a phone, a criteria and a purchasing order I recommend to anybody who asks me for advice when getting a new smartphone.
My girlfriend had a little red symbian Nokia touchscreen smartphone that looked like it had been run over by a tank. Twice. Cracked screen, parts of it not reacting, needing to remove sim and reboot at times - the works. I bought her a cheap current-day android 5 smartphone - red casing,
Her demografic for large parts is an intersection with todays classic iPhone user - not really interested in the details.
I'm sure this plays into the breakage quota aswell. You can say what you want about Apple, but saying that they build bad hardware is just being silly.
My 2 cents.
Google decides that's exactly when it should update an app I never use and wish I could remove
"Uninstall updates" followed by "Disable" should keep Google from updating that app.
Oh, BTW, you may be running Linux or BSD yourself and not even know it -- Android is Linux and Apple is BSD.
And it'd be technically correct* to state that TiVo DVRs run Linux.
But what people mean when they refer to running Linux or BSD on a desktop PC are X11/Linux and X11/FreeBSD. Unlike the majority of window managers for the X Window System, Android prior to Nougat doesn't even have multiple windows on screen as a standard feature, which makes it not ideal for writing one document while referring to another.
* Allegedly the best kind of correct.
I think it's the <ecode> element, which works in Slash and Rehash but nowhere else.
And nothing in a library is going to tell me the odds of that
I think the "library" part comes in when you cancel home Internet and TV for a year, use the Internet at the library in the meantime, and put the money you save toward the two 'crippling sums'.
Try shutting a few things off. On my phone, when I use my bluetooth speaker, half the time it will reboot itself because Google decides that's exactly when it should update an app I never use and wish I could remove. I found that shutting off wi-fi makes it crash less.
And just what part of your ass did you pull that "statistic" from?
Oh, BTW, you may be running Linux or BSD yourself and not even know it -- Android is Linux and Apple is BSD. In fact, about the only computers that aren't running BSD or Linux are Windows desktops and laptops.
It SHOULD treat it as a USB memory device, it may not, though. Whenever I plug either of my tablets or my phone in either Win7 laptop it looks for drivers. It even looks for drivers when I plug in a thumb drive!
No I have to moderate a different thread because I just undid mods... damn.
Obvious to me as well. He doesn't really want to run the country, he thinks he can make a lot of money running. It almost seems like he's TRYING to lose!
:"Anti-Trump" in the sense that they laugh at him and his blatant lies.
Yes, it was. I had the maid show me how to work the coffeemaker later. I'd have known if I'd bothered to read the coffee packet.
Some of the blur may have been because I was so shaky after hiking outside with all those books and falling down. That last photo is bad because there wasn't much light,
He's dead, Jim.
