wouldn't the person who is expecting to receive it kind of, you know, notice?
Not if your VOIP is hacked and you aren't immediately aware of it.
There is no Zuul... only phone.
All your phones are belong to Zuul? Uh oh...
what little they were not getting anyway
Make no mistake about it, the NSA has access to damn near everything going on in friendly nations already. Whether through negotiated channels or unsanctioned spying, the NSA knows what goes on in the UK, Germany, France, Canada, and many other countries. When it comes to their stated mission of security, and their failures, the problem is information overload, not a lack of information.
"See, international investors keep investing in the UK, even after we've decided to leave the EU."
Not sure of your angle, and I don't know the ins and outs of British payment systems, but the price of just over a billion dollars makes it appear to be an intriguing investment for MasterCard. Of course if the UK's economy completely tanks it wouldn't look like such a good investment, but if VocalLink is as big as I think it is this sure looks like a bargain from where I sit.
Maybe the prevailing domestic concern (on your side of the pond) is not continued "investment" as much as national assets being sold off, if I'm reading it right?
LOL. Merkel better get right on that. But she has more pressing things to do, like let 100,000 more "refugees" in to further destroy the country.
Mr Trump, you can't hide behind the AC tag here, we can spot your populism-shrouded, bigoted, and blatantly off-topic views a mile away.
Don't cry for VW. They're the world's largest automaker
Clearly you are confusing VW with Toyota, who are still the world's biggest automaker.
I can't comment on the rest of your manifesto, other than to say I have no idea why you are so interested in how the Phaeton was destined to be a phailure from the beginning. Every automaker makes mistakes, some dumber and more costly than others, so it is the successes that drive them. VW will survive this with a black eye (or two), and I will continue to test drive Audis every time I'm in the market for a new car. (More VW-branded AWD options might finally convince me to go German, as I like Audis but find them a tad over priced and overly expensive to maintain, and winter brings too much snow to my area for me to spend big bucks on a 2WD car.)
One dealer said the group was told that early testing of a small sample of repaired cars showed that the fix made 'no discernible difference' in the cars' mileage, horsepower or torque.
Surely some folks will throw their stock VWs on a dyno before and after, right? I'm skeptical that tweaking the computers and adding bigger cats can significantly lower emissions while not impacting HP, torque, and mpg. Or does "discernible" only refer to butt dyno results? $14 billion (or whatever it is up to) sounds like an impressively large sum, but the unknown impact on resale values is something that can only be revealed in time. I must say, VW prices have begun to look attractive to me, and the cheating cars are still good, solid cars, but I can't buy a vehicle I intend to drive for 2-5 years without having some idea of what I'll be able to get back at the end of that term.
I happen to still be employed by Cyanogen, Inc and work on the OS side so take the rumors with a grain of salt.
Employees will know more after Tuesday.
I hope you're being truthful, but given that you posted anonymously your comment carries absolutely zero credibility. Care to be more convincing? I WANT to believe.
136 employees before layoffs? Amazon could absorb that in a DAY and not even blink. I'm not exaggerating.
Maybe so, but I don't care much about Amazon firing or hiring 30 people, because they don't produce/polish my mobile operating system. Granted, I'm sure someone will successfully fork CyanogenMod if Cyanogen kills it, but I kind of like it as it is, since it actually works fairly well.
