Why punk a friend? Surely it would be a bigger laff to punk the world?
That politician giving the speech to the international audience? Let's have the auto-translators pick up "Good Morning!" as "Today we will be bombing West Ham!"

I realize that a great deal of effort and research is underway attempting to work issues of obstacle identification through low light and glare, or being able to identify the proper course on a three lane road in the Pennsylvania hills at night in the rain.
Just wondering if anyone has seen any work on reacting to mechanical issues? A tire rupture at highway speed? A leaking brake fluid line? Once the cars are on the road there will be pressure to control costs that will lead to 'less than top quality' components ... that will break.
And will they have a special driving mode when college students load them down and lash a mattress to the roof before having them drive to the dorm at uni?
I can only assume that you have never read through documents like US federal regulations and attempted to enumerate or count the specific 'regulations'. I think you'll find that it takes quite a bit of [contentious] interpretation to count things. Many clauses and sections are intertwined and reference other sections of the document or even other documents.
While possibly well intentioned, in actuality this is a stupid idea that will only lead to stupider and more complex laws.
Example? Suppose we had a federal regulation preventing the dumping of toxic waste anywhere in the US. If we modify that regulation to allow toxic waste to be dumped at these two addresses: 725 5th Ave, New York, NY 10022 (Trump Tower NYC ) and 401 N. Wabash Avenue Chicago, Illinois 60611 (Trump Tower Chicago) ... any lawyer could argue that we have eliminated two regulations.
<sigh ?> Expect more silliness to ensue ...
I think the 'health' market is a bit more fragmented and complex than that. Simplicity is simply not the only driver at work in this market. There are sub-markets that are interested in tracking more than just their daily step count.
Even a back marker triathlete wants a watch like a Garmin Fenix 3 or 920XT that can track their open water swim, time spent in transition 1, link to their power meter on the bike, time spent in transition 2, and their run.
And, of course, link to and upload their split times to Strava and Garmin Connect.
This crowd will gladly dump their current watch once the next gen figures out how to add more complexity and include a power meter for running!
Heh. Reminds me of a conversation I had with a Bell Labs engineer 30 years ago ... he was telling me we had gotten the system all wrong. That instead of assigning numbers to telephone lines we should have put phone company reps in every hospital and assigned telephone numbers to people at birth!
Let me see if I have this right ... (admitting that lag times might get a bit annoying) ... but it sounds like a fairly simple, albeit droll, exercise to repartition my data so that different fields and pointers are stored on servers in different countries ... thereby insuring that, legally, I never have to give any data to anyone? <runs quickly off to the patent office />
There is an American microbrewer who has already worked with molecular archaeologists to re-created several ancient brews, which they later sell. Like this one:
I've tried several. Unusual, but interesting. Good stuff! And what the hell is science good for anyway if not for re-creating ancient beer?
Quite right. Because there are no other possible form factors.
It would be quite impossible to manufacture a touchscreen half-top - a laptop where the keyboard 'half' is shorter than the screen "half" and that allowed itself to be opened 180 degrees so the whole thing could lie flat on the coffee table. Nope. Can't be done.
It would be quite impossible to manufacture a pad-like thing that had a slide-out keyboard like my phone. Nope. Can't be done.
Yup. We've completely exhausted all possibilities.
Now where's that irony tag?
In other venues I believe the schedule is produced as a 'work for hire' and owned by the league, conference, or sporting authority which has an interest in making it freely and widely available.
The schedule monkeys cash their cheque for producing the schedule. That's the end of their rights.
Intercourse, Pennsylvania. Not too far from Bird In Hand and Blue Ball! All three of which are located in Lancaster county of Amish fame.
There is actually a nice wine shoppe in the center of town. I know because my wife made me stop right in the middle of Intercourse and run in for a bottle!
(Mine's the one with the sneaky butler!)
Geez! It's not like I could sell you a game with built-in advertising where I also make money selling your personal information to people who could wait until you are a famous celebrity before they inform the world just how many different 'penis enlargement pill' ads you clicked on.
Oh wait? It *IS* like that, isn't it?
Because it HAS to be regional!
By having separate regional teams you make it quite easy: (a) to justify the big fooking database you need to 'facilitate co-operation and collaboration' between the regions, (b) to accumulate a bigger budget, and (c) to shuffle the blame when the wheels come off.
D'oh! Clearly an epic 'win-win-win'!!
Nearly there. MS is suiing for two reasons: (1) they had to refund the ad monies they collected from the legitimate advertiser in order to keep them happy, (2) if they fail to act then word with get round and they will have more difficulty selling future ads.
It's all about protecting the revenue stream. Hat? Coat? Follow the money.
A fun little idea! Two questions:
(1) The night leccy rates are lower because capacity exists and the demand is lower. If everyone uses this, then the demand (and the prices) rise and wipe out the savings. Cool idea - but only if it doesn't sell well.
(2) When a worldfull of leccy SUVs are plugged in for the night ... will there be enough juice left (at a decent rate) to mix up these server rack martinis?
Shaken, not stirred.
You might want to reconsider your icon. Perhaps after you become better informed about what constitutes free speech?
Defamation and slander is not protected under free speech.
Prosecutors might also make a decent case for 'imminent lawless action', which is also not protected under free speech.
This guy is a tool. He deserves to be fined and to do time.
This really is most excellent news!!
I hope this passes soon. After which I would invite you to join me in sending a notarized letter to your local newspaper announcing your intention to run for some sundry office.
Voila! You is now a politician and free to ignore the DMCA.
My coat? It's the one with the running for office button.
Assuming you mean "investment", you seem to have neglected that you have not lost the original value paid out for the stock.
So if you pay $90 for 1 share, earn an $8 dividend and then sell that share for $90 ... you have made very nearly a 9% return in a single year.
Or are your action figure dolls appreciating at a faster rate?
"If someone is searching for cancer treatments there is nothing that links that search to the health status of an individual. They could be running the search on behalf of a friend."
You're entirely right John! And if your wife is found to have searched for information on battered women's shelters? No worries there, mate. There is nothing that links her browser search back to behavior on your part. She could actually be searching on behalf of a friend. I'm sure the media would be glad to give you the benefit of the doubt.
Are there any apps that hold or save data anywhere? A calendar app? A ringtone player? Email/Vmail archiving? Personal voice note recorder?
If Apple removes the app, then the data would be lost or bricked wouldn't it?
No, a purchase price refund, or store credit simply would not be enough.
(Paris, because she knows when enough is enough.)
Okay. So the 'bad guys' have found a security hole and people in your military force are dying because of it, right? Which would you prefer? Firing off a sternly worded email to Richmond demanding that they issue a patch as quickly as possible and then assuring your boss and the public and the families of those dying that you really have done everything that is in your power to do ... or spending money on a room full of bearded rent-a-geeks that you can rant and rave and throw pizza at? Which provides the best appearance of your sincere concern to work on and resolve the problem at hand?
