Not at all. For audiophiles such as myself a headphone jack is a requirement for purchasing any device. Until bluetooth headphones/headsets can provide the same quality as my corded headphones this will not change.
I agree. The sole reason why I don't own a 3D TV is that you have to have special glasses. You can't just use any 3D glasses like you can in the theater. Even better would be if they could pull of 3D without glasses then it would really take off.
Congratulations, this is the dumbest thing I have read all day! I am a software engineer, I live in Kansas City, KS, I make a very good salary, and the living expenses are low, along with the taxes here, which makes my salary go even farther. I have two new cars that are almost paid for, a nice house, and I have a 30' boat in a slip at LOTO. So, if you think that the only jobs in rural areas concern cows it is you who are dumb.
"even the slightest smell of Linux" huh? Well where is the link for the *.iso download? I wanna be the judge of that. It sure looks like a Linux based OS to me. All it's missing is the little Penguin in the middle of the KasperskyOS logo. WHATEVER
sudden.zero writes: A star 5,000 light-years from Earth is the closest thing to a perfect sphere that has ever been observed in nature, a new study reports.
Stars, planets and other round celestial bodies bulge slightly at their equators due to centrifugal force. Generally speaking, the faster these objects spin, the greater the force, and the larger the bulge.
For example, the sun rotates once every 27 days, and an imaginary line drawn through its center at the equator is about 12 miles (20 kilometers) longer than a similar line drawn from pole to pole. The equatorial diameter of Earth, which completes a rotation every 24 hours, is 26 miles (42 km) longer than the polar diameter, even though Earth is much smaller than the sun. [Solar Quiz: How Well Do You Know the Sun?]
But the distant star, known as Kepler 11145123, has Earth, the sun and every other object that's ever been measured beat in terms of roundness, study team members said.
Amen! If the majority vote won then only a handful of the states would decide the election. That is what these popular vote idiots don't seem to understand. That is why the founding fathers (very smart men) set it up this way. Every state should have a reasonable say in who is elected! Anyone who thinks otherwise is an idiot!
...use one's eyes to know that climate change is real. When I was a kid, in the 80's, I normally had my coat, and gloves out by this time in November. Shoot we had at least 1 to 3 inches of snowfall by this time in November. Don't believe me then look here:
Then fast forward to 2016: there is no snow in sight, and it is 72 degrees currently in Overland Park, KS where I am. Don't tell me climate change doesn't exist.
If you don't believe your senses then look at the great barrier reef that is slowly dying due to the water being too warm
Climate change is real, but IMO there is nothing that we can do about it now. Humanity hasn't invested enough time in developing clean energy, clean transportation, etc. to turn things around. A few people like Elon Musk are trying, but the price point for Teslas are still beyond most peoples reach. Very few people that are in that price point are also Earth conscious / green.
Spoilers: as the above comment said don't read if you want to see the movie.
Very true. The plot could have been much better. I mean the current whole movie could have been summed up in the first five minutes. The Army pulls in a world renowned linguist to communicate with aliens that have landed. After some dialogue with the aliens they give her their language as a gift in return for help in the future. She finds that the Alien language allows her to see the future. This is where the plot could open up, and do just about anything, but obviously the writers failed us. She could have then used the power she gained from this alien language to change the world, stop a war, end world hunger, save mankind from a hostile invasion that the first aliens were there to warn us about (the help that they asked for in return for giving her the language), travel the universe, save mankind by finding a new planet after inventing interstellar travel. I mean the sky is the limit when you can see the future. Anything she wanted to do would always be funded because all she would have to do is fill out a lottery ticket and the next day she would have money. This movie could have went so many ways, but instead she chose to live out her normal mundane life, have a child that she knew was going to die of cancer (because she could see the future) and write a book even though all of that would cause her to get divorced. Who in their right mind would choose this existence!?!
...Facebook isn't doing anything, but allowing users that are abiding by its terms of service to post whatever they want. There is no law against this because this is a free country, and there is this thing called freedom of speech!
Second: Facebook isn't a news site, and it doesn't produce most of the content contained on Facebook. Facebook is a user driven site, and users are free to post pretty much anything they want as long as it doesn't violate Facebook's terms of service. If other people are dumb enough to believe false news stories without doing research on the topic then that is their priority, and the government has no business telling these idiots what to believe or not believe. Also the government has no right to try and persuade Facebook to protect these idiots. In fact please don't! Let natural selection take its course. As I have seen plenty of hazardous memes on Facebook that should cause idiots like this to do something stupid resulting in certain fatal injury.
...This is what you'll get
This is what you'll get
This is what you'll get
When you mess with us
You can't create a monopoly on something, pretend it's rare by creating scarcity due to owning 80% of the world's whatever it is, and expect no one to ever find a way around your bullshit. The fact is that Diamonds are not that rare; in fact Sapphires and Rubies are much rarer than Diamonds. The De beers duped everyone into thinking that diamonds are rare, and then fed the diamond fever with advertising and Hollywood fanned the fire with movies like "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend"
So, Fuck the De Beers and Hollywood! If you want to get someone a nice really rare gemstone get them a sapphire or ruby, and don't believe the diamond hype!
...is that I would never vote for anyone (Hillary) that is under active investigation, in multiple areas of their life (email scandal and now Clinton Foundation), by the FBI for the majority of the election cycle. Anyone who does should have their head examined.
To all of the people replying negatively to this post, and degrading the AC above: you should be ashamed of yourselves. Sometimes good people get into bad situations beyond their control. 1.5 years ago my fiance lost her job, and it took her a year to find another job that paid even close to her previous salary. While she was unemployed I spent the majority of our savings, upwards of 30k, keeping us afloat as we tend to live right within our means as most people do (If you pretend you don't you are lying to yourself). Right now we are still trying to dig out of the hole created by her unemployment which was caused by her employer being sold to a new owner whom had his own staff to bring on. If we were to incur a couple unforeseen circumstances as the AC above described we would be in the same type of situation. One doesn't always have to be an idiot to get into this type of situation.
