The cost of living on the Vinyard is insane - cheap housing would just be a cruel market distortion.
Let the grocery stores all go bare and then see if the employers really can't pay much above minimum-wage. I suspect the customers will pay what it costs. Your plan of taking money from working-class people in Worchester to subsidize the grocery prices on the Vineyard is classic elitist abuse.
Have you ever used a Dyson product? They suck (except the ones that are supposed to).
Good news that this little battery company had its own R&D staff, perhaps some of them who've had some life experience. If they just need a billion dollars to succeed, then I'm all for it and hope Dyson profits handsomely.
Any employee taking this option is a fool. They would be voluntarily giving up the (sometimes meager) benefits of being defined as a full time employee under US law. Great for Amazon, terrible for the employee.
Under 32 hours and the law would say no benefits are required. Amazon is actually giving them a straight ratio of benefits instead of dropping them to part-time. It's the opposite of a dickish move, as far as the law is concerned (and Amazon is showing that the law need not dictate when businesses are competing for employees).
There are probably many parents who will jump at this kind of opportunity (plus others who want to start a business, do more volunteering, or just have more leisure time).
Expect scheduled brownouts when the Great Computer gets hungry
Well, that *is* interesting. Will Alphabet* be reducing the capacity of its services in response to high grid utilization?
Or cheaper. We've been hearing about SSD under 30 cents a GB "real soon now" for, what, five years now? At ten cents it replaces hard drives in all small capacities. The slope still puts that many years out.
Maybe 3DXpoint will depress the NAND prices for existing fab utilization next year. Here's hoping.
You forget what OS this is....
This is a undocumented feature.
Isn't helium that same stuff needed for MRI machines that I keep hearing is in short supply?
That kind of thinking is so sixty days ago.
...even before humans had any significant CO2 output.
Right. This has been known for at least a decade. What, it doesn't dominate the discussion withing the "scientific consensus"?
It's true that he has little credibility on this subject but what a sixty year old guy did in undergrad is practically meaningless.
100% free if you don't have a completely repulsive personality.
The fact the whole state is a river flood plain and only stupid people build homes in a river flood plain?
Global warming may have cause the weather pattern changes, but it does not change the fact that if you build in the low lands, you have to expect flooding because it will absolutely happen with a 100% guarantee.
Samsung and HTC glue the battery behind the LCD so you damage the screen trying to get it out, and they have the awesome effect of screen cracks when they swell at end of life.
$1.00 for a really good lunch compared to our $10.00? yeah their cost of living is a LOT lower.
you dont die if you dont have a $800 smartphone.
They do. you just dont buy them direct from samsung. you can always buy refurbs from carriers. And any warranty return for a new phone is always replaced with a used refurb.
My favorite part of buying a $600 phone is getting a used one that is all scratched up
Mommy, what happens to your files when you die?
