Are they talking about domestic water boilers?

So, blame the victim for trying to minimise the pain.
How about "pay me a ransom for your own life, or I will shoot/knife you".
Should paying that kind of ransom be illegal?
It's not so different from "pay me a ransom or I will do X"
And legal definitions are sometimes notoriously tricky to confine to one intended scenario.
That's just not true. When you have a large number of applications you need to know what experience someone has in order to match up their likely skills that have come from that experience, against the requirements.
And someone with 15 or 20 years experience is way more "experienced" than someone with 6 and a half years.
And for the rest of the world, so we can compare with the numbers in the article...
91.5F ambient=33.06 C
107-120F=41.7 - 48.9 C
50F hotter = 27 degrees C hotter (I think! more tricky, I have seen youtube FAILs by converting absolute F to C when what they really need is a difference)
Exactly, it's about evolution. A virus, or any of the living things we know on Earth, have evolved to the point that they are at now.
The living world is a dangerous place and any of these that didn't have the ability, or the drive, to perpetuate itself, have all died and are no longer here for that very reason.
AIs have not evolved in the same way, their environment is not so dangerous nor have they been around for so long. If we let them evolve with mutation, random or otherwise, and with some kind of selection, natural or otherwise, then the ones that have a "desire" to stay around will be the ones that are still here.
"A good rule of thumb is that if you are in business and send out an email to a customer expecting the recipient to read it you should be prepared to read any reply. It's no more than courtesy to your customer, even in the situation you describe."
True, but for those misguided companies that send out "noreply" emails, it's not necessarily appropriate to tar them with the same brush as scammers and other spam.
Why do unions in the USA (the ones I've heard of anyway) have weird names? UK unions have proper names like "the national union of blah blah workers".
Anyway if electricians or communications unions already covered this work, wouldn't the workers be trying to join those unions instead of forming a new one?
I came here thinking I would find people saying "Good, I don't want third-party apps having the ability to record ....after all, they might do it without me knowing"
And the point that they are misusing an API to do so makes that seem more likely.
But everyone here wants them to do it. Who knew?
To be fair, it's a different product that has had to be produced separately. If I were an app developer/seller (which I am not) I would hope that if someone wanted it on a different platform they would pay for that product separately. Maybe some discount could apply, but I hardly think it's a matter for "Regulators".
Between asking you to "donate to help fund the app's development", and "pay for the app" -- they are both funding the app's development.
The latter has always been disallowed via non app store methods and the subject of much debate. So what's new here?
Is it just that a donation is voluntary?
