I suppose you could get together with some of your neighbors and set up some sort of collective arrangement where everybody agrees on rules for appropriate behaviour and collectively uses force to make sure that outsiders do not violate these agreements, but that that point you've basically reinvented government.
No, at that point what you have is one possible service provider in a potentially competitive market - as opposed to the monopoly system we have now.
I won't buy a laptop *without* a number pad.
How often do you actually use the keypad, and is it worth the annoyance of having the entire keyboard shifted to the left? You can also forget about anything with a 13- or 14-inch screen if you insist on a built-in keypad.
For the few occasions where I might need to enter lots of numeric data, there are USB keypads.
To be fair the machines with soldered on RAM are often that way because they already have the maximum that the chipset supports.
The thinnest notebooks out there use soldered-on RAM more than likely because sockets would make them thicker. It's not just Apple that's following this approach, either; I have a Dell Latitude 7370 that's fixed at 8 GB RAM. I wouldn't be surprised if a fair number of other "ultrabook" models took the same approach.
(Apparently the entire bottom panel is still removable with some screws, and the SSD is an M.2 (?) unit that can be replaced with something of larger capacity. Nobody's figured out a sufficiently low-profile method for accomodating RAM upgrades, though.)
"Let the US government fake news win!"
War on drugs!
War on poverty!
Oh crap... we're hosed.
If you're paying less than $20/mo for a VPS, you're shafted.
I'm paying less than $20 per quarter (actual rate is €15.12 IIRC) for Gentoo running on Xen. emerge -auND --with-bdeps=y --backtrack=100 @world works the same on it as it does on my desktop at home.
But someone has to set policy for all of you, otherwise you just have anarchy
Anarchy would be awesome. That's the state of not having parasites (rulers). Or as I like to call it, being grown up. Setting rules simply for the sake of having rules is ridiculous.
Being welcomed to a country you are not citizen of is not a human right
Being able to buy and sell and rent property and employ people is. The government doesn't own this country and has no right to set policy for all of us.
The point on a mobile device is pretty dubious, actually. Who in the world would like to watch a move on the tiny little screen?
When it's hanging off the seat in front of you, the average cellphone or tablet screen is big enough. Pop it into an Airhook and it'll just about be at eyeball height. I caught up on a couple of shows that way flying home this past weekend.
joining with the fast-food, airport, home care, child care and higher education workers who are leading the way and showing the country how to build an economy
Because everybody knows that Uber drivers, fast-food, airport, home care, child care, and higher education workers are the best experts to look to for economic knowledge.
Hillary Clinton will be the next POTUS with Pence as the VP.
Yes, you heard correctly. LOL, why else do you think Jill and the Clintons what a HAND RECOUNT. They won't make it in time. THATS THE POINT!!! This will put Trump below the 270 EC votes needed, and thus Congress votes on who the next POTUS will be. 1:) They HATE TRUMP. 2:) Congress LOVES power!. Think about it. Congress will control Clinton; if she steps out of line, she gets the book thrown at her and threatened by Pence taking her spot. Meanwhile, Congress will cockblock Clinton's SCOTUS nominee to keep the court divided with the lower court ruling having stand. It's muthafucking brilliant. Those globalist will run the world joined at the hip with wall street. 100% pure corruption. And you all are going to take it up the ass!!!!
Yes, America is fucked.
Holy crap, he is! I thought he died years ago!
Maybe we can now Light the Linden now that Abe Vigoda has passed on.
Once it hits the fan, the only rational choice is to sweep it up, package it, and sell it as fertilizer.
