Wait until you have to recompile your kernel to get your modem working!
I'm tired of appliances that have built-in support for connecting to third-party services that can't be removed. Recently I bought a Sony streaming player, and turns out that some time ago, due to a YouTube API change, it no longer connects to it, nobody's gonna fix it and I have an icon doing nothing that I can't remove. Same with my Nokia N9: Ovi Store, broken Skype application, Nokia Music Store. The original service provider is gone and now it's all polluting the applications list and there's no a way to delete them.
What's going to happen when Amazon and Seagate decide that they're not good friends anymore or Amazon "changes its priorities"? At least they should provide a way to get rid of the crapware or install a replacement on your own, but guess what.
You can say anything about Fidel, but he was a tough guy. Cuba resisted bravely (if you allow me to use the term) to an enemy way bigger and more powerful for many years. Curiously, the end of the Castro era could have arrived long before if the past presidents would have used the Obama approach: Embrace, extend and extinguish. Personally, I think he chose a wrong path and became the perfect example of why communist social structures are not sustainable. "Join together to share the lack of wealth", to use Stallman's words, simply goes against human nature. RIP, anyway.
On a long enough time line, anything can be done by robots. The thing is, I don't think we have that much of time. As others have pointed out farming involves many complicated scenarios. For example, harvesting coffee beans is a time-consuming and exhausting task that requires special care and depending on the country, the terrain and social conditions won't help at all. It's like, autonomous trucks may work nicely on an Autobahn, but I want to see that working in Thailand or Venezuela.
"They are fantastic assets," Whitman said in an interview. "They're just not core to our strategy."
Since many right-wing sectors claim that what gays do is "unnatural", does this mean that gay porn will be banned as well?
I don't know if this is false decisiveness, but he has to do something, be it a stunt or not. He's already getting a lot of heat from almost half of the country. He needs to consolidate and keep calm his electoral base at least. Politics, just like economy, is more about emotions than technicalities.
