There is just something amazing about holding a physical book compared to a ebook reader. I think it has to do with there being so much information today, that having a limited amount is actually satisfying.
Take a look at the attack code people. It's very clear this is a state sponsored attack using baidu, they are targeting VPN software hosted on Github that's used to bypass firewall restrictions in China.
It's not like baidu would randomly install attack code against github for "no reason". Additionally, it's been 125 hours now & they still haven't taken it down.
It's simple, the oil will be shipped by train as it is now. Which obviously emits way more greenhouse gasses then a pipeline. Rich people aren't gonna "stop" trying to make money of energy because of no pipeline lol.
Here's the truth, if you pay them XYk-XYZk (They NDA you) per year you get added to their "safe" list no matter what. Google, Facebook & pretty much every semi-legit ad network does. They brag about it & it's expensive.
It's not about the ad's being "safe" it's about how much you pay them. They have TONS of shady networks that pay the fee because it's ROI effective to do it.
It's a genius business model with almost no costs at all.
Adblock in my experience is roughly 10-15% of all internet traffic. This is based on real stats, impressions go up this much when you get around it.
Conversely for advertisers, the traffic generally is almost worthless & generates very little revenue at all. But the Ad network's don't care because the majority of Ad networks operate on a CPM basis. It's dirty.
Microsoft is saying the US has no jurisdiction over "Microsoft Ireland" not "Microsoft US" & technically they are right. It's a completely separate business entity.
You see, to avoid paying high taxes in the US. Microsoft like Apple, Google etc... create parent companies in foreign countries. To which they pay huge sums of revenue in licensing fees to lower or sometimes completely avoid paying any tax in the US. Ireland specifically up until recently was THE cornerstone for this tax scheme. It's also legal in the US btw.
Microsoft doesn't want to open itself up to tax obligations in the future by allow these types of requests.
Watch the documentary "We're Not Broke" on Netflix, about $2.4 trillion in corporate tax avoidance since 2000-2013. They explain this legal scam & Ireland is front and center in implementing it. Taxes are the reason they are fighting this.
This is what I would buy,
1) I need to tell at a glance time without hitting any buttons. Eg, a watch....
2) It would need it to be curved to fit the dimensions of my wirst
3) It should decide if I should buy or sell a stock.
That is all.
