On the other hand Trump has asked for visa for over a 1000 foriegn workers over the past decade of so. These are for the type of jobs that should be easy to fill with US workers. Cooks, golf caddies, picking grapes, etc. These are not high skilled jobs, and the only reason to import workers is because of the potentially lower pay or ability to deport workers if they refuse to work, or complain about the condition, of violate confidentiality agreements.
Conversations would be different if the uber car was at fault but not all accidents can be avoided.
There are accidents that nobody could avoid, there are accidents that I cannot avoid, and accidents that could be avoided.
Obviously self driving cars will initially have to be clever enough to only cause accidents very, very rarely, At some point when this is achieved, they will try to avoid avoidable accidents where someone else is at fault.
If lexmark win this then every car manufacturer will be able to create their own fuel and shut out generic petrol alternatives.
The first car maker trying that would go bankrupt within a very short time. If Ford were mad enough to build a car that I can only fill up at Ford gas stations, what sane person would buy that car?
I'm not clear on patent law in this case (certainly not the US laws), but I thought patent licenses cover manufacturing, not use.
It covers use as well. Imagine someone with a _real_ patent, and some company makes a million unlicensed products and sells them cheap. Then as a buyer you can't say "I'm just using the product, I didn't produce it, I should be allowed to use it".
Obviously when you pay a patented cartridge made by Lexmark you _have_ a license to use it. And if you sell that cartridge to me then I have a license to use it, and you don't have it anymore.
Role-based administration and privilege separation. Linux still sucks in this area. With windows you get a security token that gives you permission to do just what you need, on Linux you need to suid yourself to root to do just about anything, which allows you to do absolutely everything. The massive whitelist that is selinux is a backwards way of implementing security.
I suggest you read up on what sudo is capable off. You can easily setup sudo via its configuration file (/etc/sudoers) that will allow users that require elevated privileges (eg. Database and Web Administrators) to do their work without needing root access.
Unix has had Access Control Lists from early late 1980 going into the early 1990's. Linux got ACL's also in the early 1990's.
As for SELinux. I would be nice if you had a program that could understand "intent" but it is far easier to know what is required (eg files, directories and ports) and how to treat them rather than try to guess what to do about things you don't know about. In other words, what you don't know about you don't allow.
The catch is that it's starting to be "never buy anything" from anyone. There isn't a company on this planet that doesn't want this ability to control it's products after purchase, and they consistently get away with it.
It seems that I can get third party cartridges for my Brother laser printer quite easily. It seems that Brother doesn't try stopping others from making cartridges.
Excuse me? What have they patented exactly?
It doesn't really matter. They have patented _something_ and nobody claims that patent would be invalid. They then go on to claim that because they have some patent, nobody is allowed to refill their cartridges. And that's what should fail in court.
The exception would be if they have a patent on refilling cartridges, then they can deny you the right to refill cartridges _using their patented method_, but they still can't deny you the right to refill cartridges in any other way.
But many people are looking for a house that is about a maybe two or three square foot for every dollar of their monthly mortgage. That can be hard to find in the city. While one can find a very desirable house at very reasonable costs in the city, it is often in locations where there are diverse people.
The other item is similar to when people moved into the city. More young adults are used to living in the suburbs, and while may move to the city when they are young, are inevitably going to move back to their childhood norm, which increasingly is the exurbs.
Sure, the Super Hero block busters are fun, they are like roller coasters. Not much intellectual stimulation, no real plot to speak of, no real story either. I hesitate to call them "movies," I think "blockbuster" is perfect.
Don't get me wrong, I like "blockbusters" sometimes, but there are so many really really good films being produced that have to go to netflix or amazon because there is no screen space at the theaters. "Beauty and the Beast?" are you f*&^&*king kidding me? Sure, its good to see Hermione with a day job, but its on every damned screen in the theaters.
We need to differentiate between "big" movies and all the others. The "big" movies need to cost more. The other movies should cost less. Then there will be openings for better "movies."
