Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.
Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.
This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.
And so the problem remained; lots of the people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches.
Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans.
Most people who charge at home, charge at night. So, without storage, solar panels don't help.
That's idiotic nonsense. Most people who charge their electric car at home, switch to peak/off-peak billing with their electric company. That means electricity used before midnight is insanely expensive, but solar panels can offset most of that daytime demand. And after midnight you can charge your car for a pittance.
Facebook has to change their posting guidelines to allow what's become "normal" political speech?
Right-wing political speech becomes less extreme every year. What Trump has said, while baseless and unsupported, is far less offensive than what we've previously seen from them.
"The gay community has infiltrated the very centers of power in every area across this country, and they wield extreme powerâ¦ That agenda is the greatest threat to our freedom that we face today." -Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK)
âoeBlacks Bought A Lot Of Propaganda On The Liberal Plantation.â -Pat Buchanan (R-Nixon/Regan administrations)
"We have a high percentage of blacks in prison, and thatâ(TM)s tragic, but are they in prison just because they are black or because they donâ(TM)t want to study as hard in school? Iâ(TM)ve taught school, and I saw a lot of people of color who didnâ(TM)t study hard because they said the government would take care of them." -Sally Kern (R-OK)
"Yes black lives matter. The best way to end the slaughter of young black men is to take guns away from blacks as they are the main killers." -Randy Pullen (R-RNC Treasurer)
[Chris Mapp (R-TX)] stood by his comments, made during an editorial board meeting with the Dallas Morning News, that âoe'wetbacks' should be shot by ranchers and that President Barack Obama is a 'socialist son of a bitch.'â
Verizon and Sprint are likely to be first dibs for that just b'cos they can't use the Intel chipset models.
Except they don't, as I already explained in my comment you're replying to.
Verizon, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular still maintain sizable CDMA infrastructure. They cannot use Intel's gsm-only modem.
Where in my comment did I mention any of them, let alone suggesting they should get one or the other.
HINT: I've worked as a senior engineer for one of those companies...
The carriers that need CDMA (MetroPCS and Cricket both piggyback on Sprint/Verizon) get the Qualcomm modem. The ones that only need GSM get the Intel modem.
Congratulations on making a complete and total fool of yourself...
My guess is Apple is willing to turn a blind eye to that for the "1st gen" product and use the new revenue as a carrot to get Intel to direct its engineering efforts to the features that Apple wants, probably stuff like CDMA for example.
If Apple knew the Intel chipset was inferior and chose to sell it anyway, why is there no rhyme or reason to which of the models each of the carriers use? Surely the 2nd rate one would only go to carriers who want cheaper phones in exchange for compromised performance? Instead T-Mobile and AT&T both sell the Intel chipset version. Meanwhile, the cut-rate MVNO services of those same carriers, like MetroPCS and Cricket are getting the (better?) Qualcomm chipset.
As others have shot-down your other claims, I don't see that anything you've posted makes any sense...
