You can live without Internet access, just like you can live without being connected to the electrical grid, it's just not very practical, or doable, for a lot of people.
But does it really? What benefit do curved monitors give? I was told "the whole the screen is more evenly at the same distance from your eyes". But what I heard was "the screen is laid out in an unexpected and distorted way that screws with your brain".
It absolutely makes sense. I bought one for my home-office (35" curved) and I always work in multiple windows simultaneously. The curved monitor has made this so much easier, I don't have to turn my head and feel I'm getting a better overview on the curved monitor.
I can easily compare to the monitor in my office-office, which is a 32" flat monitor, I notice that I am not utilizing the full space of the monitor, and am turning my head a lot more.
Obviously not a major thing, but I am appreciating the curved monitor, and wouldn't go back. As a TV on the other hand, I'd never get a curved screen.
Are you sure about that? You can definitely pin certificates in iOS. The trustkit library provides an implementation, for example.
Yes, but then the story is going to be "76 apps vulnerable to SSL interception if running jailbreakable versions of iOS", because the attacker can trick the user into jailbreaking their device, installing SSLKillSwitch https://github.com/iSECPartner... before tricking them into installing and trusting a new cert. I find this scenario about as likely as the "install a fake cert and trust it, then please re-direct all your traffic to my nice little mitm proxy" scenario.
all those big wig IT executives that want to open the floodgates for refugees open their homes and guest houses to refugees
Not a chance. They'll do what the elitist pricks in France and Italy did while cheering on the "migrants" and so on. Cheer, cheer, cheer while they're flooding in and the average person gets fucked. Then when they show up on their door step, scream "help me police and government, you're our only hope." And build a wall or two while they're at it.
They aren't asking for refugees to be let in, they are saying that a blanket ban, like the one Trump is trying to implement, to stop _anyone_ from those countries from entering the US, for _any_ reason, is hurting them.
They do business in those countries, they need to sell their products there, and be able to support them, have teams there for the local markets, and now none of them can get to the US and be trained, they cant come for conferences, they cant assist in projects and so on... not to mention the negative image this gives US companies in not only the banned countries, but also in many others.
If you are from Iran, do really good research, then should you not be able to present that research in a conference, even if its in the US?
Its sad to see the comments on
I simply don't get how you can move from "cannot get our staff from abroad here for training and conferences" to "they should let refugees sleep in their homes".
Oh yeah, because Microsoft, Apple, Facebook etc. are doing this because they *CARE*, not because Trump is about to take away their cheap slave-labor pool and make them hire American workers.
They are doing this because they sell products in those countries, so they have staff there that needs to come to the US for training, which Trump is effectively stopping. Furthermore, they need to be able to develop products that fit that marketplace, which requires people with specific business skills from those countries, especially when looking at things such as licensing, pricing, marketing, legislation, HR and so on...
You can create a massive list of reasons how this does in fact hurt them, most of which would hold up in court, but the anti-H1B
I always find this funny that so many studies say "The Arctic is warming and there should be no more ice cap by 2050". I remember some US scientists said there would be no ice in the Arctic by 2013, and look at this graph. The arctic ice cap is currently a little over 13 million square km. Yes, it may be shrinking a little, but the sampling period is extremely short, compared to our planet's age. This can or cannot be caused by humans. But hey, anyway humans won't survive Earth, which is scheduled to disappear anyway in the next 5 billion years... Unless we disseminate elsewhere in our universe, we're doomed.
You are not taking into account any changes between then and now, but even worse, you have no data on the depth of the ice, only on the area. The square kilometers says nothing about the volume, this however, does: https://nsidc.org/cryosphere/q...
Just because one model (and your BBC article was about ONE model which contradicted other model) didn't accurately predict when all the ice will be gone, doesn't mean that you should throw all models in the bin. Right now, most models say that the ice will be mostly gone somewhere between 2040 - 2100.
Doesn't Sweden have bigger problems, like Muslim rape gangs making it the rape capital of the world?
No, but Sweden does have a very broad definition of rape, things that in many countries wouldn't even be considered illegal, are considered rape in Sweden.
Anyways, why bother with facts when you can use #alternativefacts, the latter doesn't even require any references.
The easiest solution is not to set any particular price, but have companies bid for available visas which will naturally drive up the price. Eventually it gets to a point where it's only worth it to hire an H1-B visa candidate if you really can't find any local talent and are more than willing to pay top dollar.
Education and Healthcare bidding _directly_ against major tech companies for talent... ideas here are getting just better and better...
