Comparing a non-smartphone to a smartphone will obviously bias the case. But the key issue is that smartphone battery capacities have gone dramatically up while their sizes have gone down over the past decade.
Apparently the effects are twofold. One group gets into "I wanna have a real" one mode, the other into "kill it with fire" mode.
But it doesn't seem to have any impact on their fucking habits.
It works great in elementary schools.
Yes, but clean energy is (at least now) more expensive than burning fossil fuel. I live in a country that made such a push and yes, you're right, my way of life changed not by one bit. Then again, I can afford the +20% energy bill due to subsidies for wind and solar power.
So, in a way, you're right: You needn't change your way of life. If you can afford it.
Maybe let's try something radical new and have laws written by sane people for a change.
Unfortunately sane people don't tend to elbow their way to the foreground and into a position where they could.
No, Breitbart is the same shit on the other side of the spectrum.
Considering that SJWs consider everything that disagrees with them as "harassment", you lose a lot more. You lose the main function of Twitter: The exchange of expressions of opinions.
Twitter could have been the proverbial "marketplace of ideas", where people can offer their point of view and by approval and disapproval we could have seen the true opinions of people visiting, unblemished and unencumbered by peer pressure, due to the general anonymity of the medium. Yes, that does mean that you get to see the radical and even the mean side of society, but if that is what you see, this is what we are.
We might not want to see that, but if this is what such a place ends up to be, it does mean that we are down in our core radical assholes, moderated by a society.
Insulting me in a language I don't speak is kinda pointless. With insults, even more than with any other message, it's not what you send, it's what is received.
No, it's called dumb and quite funny.
I know it's a guilty pleasure of mine to laugh about the feeble minded, but "arguments" like that are just hilarious. It's like being insulted by a 4 year old who doesn't even know how to insult someone properly.
If you filter out crap you do not want to hear from things you read, be my guest. It's your prerogative to keep yourself sheltered from reality (but please don't complain to me should reality somehow enter your world regardless and hit you in the face unprepared).
If you filter out crap you don't want to hear from things I read, I have to leave, because that's not your prerogative. It's mine.
If they make it OPTIONAL, so people with fragile souls and special snowflakes can avoid facing opinions that don't match theirs and feel safe inside their echo chamber of friends who only parrot their own opinion, fine. If it is mandatory, why bother going on Twitter anymore? I already know my opinion, testing it for validity requires pitting it against opposing opinions, only that way I can actually find out whether it is valid.
So it being an echo chamber isn't enough anymore?
You have k(a) Android devices and k(i) failed devices. k(i) divided by n(i) gives you 58%.
No, that's what failure rate is supposed to mean. However, what the numbers actually said are:
These two statements cannot both be true simultaneously by any proper definition of "failure rate". The iPhone 6 is a subset of all iOS devices. The claim is made that its failure rate was 29%. For the failure rate of all iOS devices to be 58%, that would mean that at least one iOS device must have a failure rate greater than 58% to pull the average up from 29% to 58%, which contradicts the statement that the iPhone 6 had the highest failure rate at 29%.
The only way you could even halfway make those numbers plausible would be if you erroneously divided the iPhone numbers by either the total number of iOS devices or worse, the total number of devices. Either of those approaches makes the numbers meaningless because you don't know the relationship between... to use your terminology... k(i) and n(i) at that point.
In your ramblings, you fail to consider that the vast majority of people who want to avoid expensive shipping charges will often bring their unit into a store... which eliminates many of the simpler problems.
The vast majority of people who want to avoid expensive shipping charges will Google the problem and find an answer themselves. People go to a store when that fails.
