Both of those are things that they can do without prior restraint.

I would love to see this FTC rule challenged in Court. This is a very solid example of government overreach into private speech that they have labelled "commercial" by regulatory fiat. The entire concept of regulating this type of elective speech - where private individuals have elected to use a service which enables them to access what other people have published - is gravely disturbing to me. The FTC's view that this is a form of advertising under their control is very-outdated.
A Twitter post is much more like the answer you get when you say to a person - "What do you think?" than a form of advertising that targets people broadly.
Can't believe I'm posting a link to the Sun newspaper (ick!), but they have a video of a S7 going up in smoke on a table whilst the owner appears to be ordering food.
It wasn't even being charged at the time.
When rumoursite.com publishes a slightly negative rumour of an upcoming Apple product, everyone is like "Apple are such visionaries, removing buttons and speakers are such brilliance and wow, I'm going to cream myself over this for months".
You must have missed the headphone jack palava where the internet went on a near meltdown over the completely unsubstantiated and unconfirmed rumour that Apple were going to drop the headphone jack.
If iPhone 7 comes with a headphone jack, then several hundred of megabytes of wailing and screeching will have been written for absolutely no point.
My two biggest complaints about Facebook is that I cannot get my stories ordered by time to be remembered and that it insists on telling me when a friend of mine does something to one of their friends - who, in the majority of cases, I don't know and don't care about.
News in my feed is pretty low down my list of gripes.
The BOM for an iPhone 6 is around $242 and that doesn't take into account the costs for developing and maintaining the software, tooling, R&D, packaging and the 101 other things that go into building and launching a phone. All of which need to be amortised over the lifetime of the phone - as developing, testing and then deploying an update to a bunch of 2+ old phones isn't free.
(although many Android manufacturers have found that it can be free if they simply don't bother with pesky updates)
The only way it would be "more like $100" is if you pulled that figure out of your butt.
Why do people think things like the Bechdel test are worth more than a fart in the breeze
A test is just providing some objective information about something.
What you do with that is your business.
The Bechdel test was presumably invented to identify movies that fail the Bechdel test as deficient, problematic, etc.
But the test can just as easily be interpreted the other way. Netflix might someday soon come up with a category called "Bechdel Failures" and learn that it is extremely popular with men.
I think it would be great if there was some kind of logo or something that indicated if a movie passed or failed the Bechdel test; feminists could look for passing films, and I could look for failing films.
Third time this week. I'm reading through slashdot comments on my mobile and get a popup ad with a "data:text/html;base64" url.
Ignoring the pop-up, I'm not sure why you willingly subject yourself to that torture.
Go install Avantslash on your server and read Slashdot on your phone that way.
Not only will your eyes thank you for it - but your data cap will too.
For sports activities, my wife acquired a TomTom GPS watch (including pulse measuring). I regularly wear it for running, and never noticed it getting hot. Same goes for my Samsung android phone, I never noticed it heating up more than usual when GPS is active. I'd guess that implementation on the iPhone is less than optimal, or there's another reason for it getting hot.
I run with an iPhone 6 (and RunKeeper) for about an hour and it doesn't get hot. Sounds like something is broken.
And this is where the "learn to code" stuff is going. There are a lot of processes out there ripe for automation. Small and mid sized businesses are still being run by manual processes. I've shown multiple people that Excel can sort. (Yes, they were sorting by hand).
In my old company we used to have secretaries who would email people the day before they had a meeting room booking to check to see if they still needed it. It turned out that a lot of meetings were actually being moved/cancelled and people were forgetting to delete the room booking.
What pained me the most was that with a couple of hours of coding they could have had something which would have automated the vast majority of that work, allowing the secretaries to get on with doing something less mundane.
Can you show me which quote of Trump's mentions race? I quickly scanned your link and did not come across any mention of any races.
I don't have any evidence of Trump naming or implying any race at any time with any of his various immigration comments.
His focus has been on
- stopping _illegal_ immigration
- stopping the legal immigration of people that are at an increased risk of becoming terrorists
- reducing immigration that appears to have a negative effect on American jobs
There is a tremendous amount of racial confirmation bias about Trump, in part because that's what the left always resorts to, and because he hasn't adopted SJW phrases and talking points.
Contrastingly, there is historical evidence of him breaking _down_ racial and other bigotry barriers in his personal and business life.
Perhaps Mrs. Clinton has observed that discussing any aspect of immigration in a negative way makes her more like Donald Trump -- a man whom she very often implies is pretty much the worst thing ever.
It's a bit interesting that when Mrs. Clinton talks negatively about immigration, she's described as empathetic for Americans.
Contrastingly, when Donald Trump talks about immigration, he's described as a racist.
I think people are wise to be suspicious of anyone running for public office. But, of Clinton, Johnson, and Trump, Trump is the only one that has ever said he wants to limit and reform immigration for the benefit of Americans who are seeking American jobs. He's also the one talking about punishing American companies who engage in behaviors that subvert American workers and jobs so replace them with foreign workers and jobs.
If you are upset with companies abusing immigration law to the detriment of American workers, and you wish someone would finally do something about it, Trump would seem like your candidate.
This election promises to be another "hold your nose" affair, but there do seem to be legitimate differences in what the candidates want to accomplish and how they want to do it.
How does $2k USD strike you?
example in use:
It occurred to me that you could adapt the airframe and application from cruise missile (the blog post), to ultra-low cost, man-deployable SAM.
A 350mph SAM isn't going to go very high, or chase down aircraft that have flown past. It won't work like a big expensive fixed SAM installation.
The current US application of airpower is flying low, slow, over and over, in repeatable patterns, because total air superiority is assumed.
And so if you watch US airpower fly over your burnt-out city, and then you see them turning to make another pass, you pull out your low-buck SAM, get it fired up, and, when the aircraft has heading back towards you, you fire at it, head on, from a field or building rooftop or whatever.
A 350mph object coming straight at an aircraft that is used to assuming air space dominance, and which is giving off no radar emissions, is going to catch at least a few super-power aircraft off guard and take them down.
This only needs to succeed once or twice. That will cause a significant change in the use of theater air-power..
There has been very little air-to-air combat in a long time. The majority of combat has been developed super powers against 2nd or 3rd world states, or against entities that aren't even states at all.
The only fighter air power requirement is a few hours of work to make sure that there is total airspace superiority, and then every other attack/recon aircraft in the super-power's arsenal loiters over its targets unopposed.
The software & silicon revolution is going to throw a wrench in all of this very soon.
Suppose you are ISIS. You cannot build all the infrastructure to have an airbase with fighter jets and trained humans to operate and maintain them, etc, and even if you could, the super powers would just stroll by and put a crater in your runway.
So what you need is an assymetric response to air power.
In the Soviet/Afghan war, the US funneled stinger missiles and other man-launched AA and AT weapons to the jihadists, and they were able to cripple the Soviet war machine.
The folks in the middle east are already plenty good at making IEDs - they have the "warhead" part figured out.
What's to stop them from putting ArduoPlane brains inside of RC powered jets and putting IEDs on them, and then using optical seekers (e.g. no active emissions, so the big jets never know its coming), and then shooting down low flying aircraft of all types and configurations?
The per-unit cost for something like this would be under $10k per copy. The impact of shooting down just one super-powers aircraft would be tremendous. It would cause an operational re-think and might even change the balance of air-power in the theater.
The Superpowers are going to need to stop playing the manned-aircraft one-ups-man-ship game, and embrace low cost swarms.
For each ISIS fighter that launches a home-made SAM, the super-power will need to respond with a swarm of airbone hunter/killer drones... already nearby, on station.
I think battles between various super-powers competing 5th gen manned fighters are unlikely and will hopefully never happen. I desperately want to avoid a shooting war with Russia or China...
