Let's agree that the government has a legitimate need to regulate this.
Let's assume they set up an organization of 100 people with average salary of $100K per year to regulate and monitor the industry. Seems like plenty to get the job done.
In 10 years they spend $100M in salary. Throw in another $100M for overhead costs. Total: $200M over 10 years.
Remember, industry develops the technology, pays all testing and regulatory costs, etc. Government just works with them to make sensible rules and confirm the rules are followed.
So how do you come up with a proposal for the government to "invest" $4B, twenty times as much? Answer: government overreach.
I grew up right next to the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. My dad and the vast majority of my friends moms and dads worked there for a long time as physicists. Being around these people for 35 years has taught me something. They are morons.
Interesting and probably true but nothing more than an ad hominem attack with regard to this study.
The guy lives so much more humbly that its hard to think if he is as crazy as western media shows him or is there more going on. The country is making progress in spite of all the sanctions. Not sure if its the Iranian media spin but the guy sits and eats simple foods on a mat on the floor, sleeps on the floor.
First of all, Ahmadinejad is not the real face of Iranian leadership. The ayatollahs make policy, not him.
Second, to the extent that he does influences Iran's behavior, what does Ahmadinejad's eating habits have to do with his policy goals? Is it OK that he wants to wipe Israel off the map and long as he gets lots of fiber in his diet?
The "Photo" app only lets you see ones your Pictures folder (Library->Pictures). I've got games and apps that don't happen to use that as the default directory. As a result, I need to copy or move all my pics into this ONE place that is usable, or hunt them down in the explorer for desktop mode, then double click (causes a "flip" to metro mode) to view each one. This blows chunks and my compromise (for now) is to enable the small preview mode (lower right toggle).
Pictures is a library, not a folder. Libraries were introduced in Windows 7. A library lets you join multiple distinct folders, even across drives and network shares, into a single logical entity. For what you are trying to accomplish, you should add your game and app folders which contain pictures to your Pictures library. In Windows 7 you do this pulling up the properties for the Pictures library and using the "Include a folder..." button.
After you've done that, the Photo app should should all of your pictures.
Crazee Edeee, his prices are INSANE!!!
