Interesting idea that could have been 1/4 the length. I still don't get the premise, faster and better quality than a dot matrix? Clearly. Wireless? Not new. The print head and speed was impressive. But knowing how printer manufacturers screw you on things like ink, I can only imagine how many different cartridges are in that behemoth. For me, printer manufacturers have a long long way to go to rebuild trust in them and their products.
Find the Gender Studies classroom. You've hit the mother-load of bullshit.
Um, dude, I think you're confused. Are you referring to Intellectual Hall? Women's studies is way on the other side of campus. Past the fusion reactor.
The best part of this course is their extremely useful advice: Don't Read The Comments
Basically, it's verify, don't trust, and realize the biases of your sources, establishing trust chains.
I am not really in favor of these cars, but consider this counter argument.
I have a 17 mile commute to work. The divided 2 and 3 lane highway is a mile from my house, and my office is right off the exit. So it is effectively all highway miles. I can usually make it in 20-23 minutes. Most of the trip is a 60MPH speed limit. Traffic is normally 70-75 MPH, with a few others on the margin of that. Pretty much what you stated.
But why does it take me 20+ minutes to get to work? Because when we aren't going 75, we are stopped. There are natural areas where it slows, like where it goes from 3 lanes to 2, or where onramps bring in more traffic. But there are other areas where we just come to a stop for no reason other than people jockeying for position, right-lane-passing, tailgating and braking.
One day it was snowing quite a lot, and mostly everyone was driving a bit more cautious. It was 60 MPH all the way to work. I didn't even need to touch my brakes until I exited for my office. People stayed in their lanes and it was so much less stressful. It took me 22 minutes door to door. So while the idea of self-driving cars still creeps me out, there is part of me that KNOWS it would be more efficient in some ways. It's a big leap to get to that point, and I personally don't see myself ever having a self-driving car... but who knows. I think it is worth testing it out.
I have heard this from so many women scientists, systems engineers, and other IT specialists who are female.
There is a problem.
My key ROI on this is:
1. Stop using the old boys network, your frat buddies, to find recruits. Set a goal of 50 percent promotions, 50 percent board position candidates, and 50 percent new hires being female.
2. If you think having one woman in the after hours drinking means you're diverse - you're wrong.
3. If you're female, stop undercutting other women when they have ideas. Most groups won't hear a woman's idea unless at least two women agree with the idea. If a male steals credit for the idea, call it out right there. Don't wait for a "good moment to bring it up". There is no good moment.
4. If you find 1-3 impossible, then you're just pretending you're a real business.
"If it is not on Bing or Google, then we have effectively eliminated piracy. Great job everyone."
Bonuses will be rewarded, a few more jobs at MS/Google to monitor piracy claims. Lawyers will creep away and chase something else.
But most of all - piracy will be dead!
OK, maybe not.
It could curtail the casual infringer. It will not deter true pirates, or those who may operate in the gray areas.
What is a gray area? I think there are many.
I once pre-ordered a CD from a band I really liked who had a new album coming out, two months ahead of the release. Release day came, and went. It was in stores, but I didn't have mine yet. After a week, I downloaded it. Another week passed, and my CD showed up.
I have purchased a DVD for my kids (many, actually) where I could not rip it to put on my media server. I was able to download it in less time that it would have taken to rip it.
I have a Roku, and I also have Charter cable. For a lot of the Roku channels I just have to log in with my Charter account to get access. Pretty painless process. However, for some of the channels (like Comedy Central) this doesn't work because they list multiple Charter providers, none of which are mine. So I am out of luck for those channels. It's not that big of a deal to me, so I don't download those shows. But I could see how that could piss some people off and why they might seek out to download them.
