Actually, the Airbus ceded control to the pilots, but it averaged input from the pilot and the copilot. The pilot knew what he was doing, the copilot didn't and kept yelling something about "touch-and-go" - but at the heights they were at, there is much less lift, and one does NOT tilt up the plane like in a landing exercise like at sealevel.
I read such an article, and the people who worked in the area were aware that the plan was "Obamacare," unlike the opinionated worker who thought they didn't understand. The larger issue is that it is "coal country." Obama has issued regulations that work against coal. Understandably, it is quite possible that they are more worried about having jobs than the price of their insurance! The article I read didn't even consider that issue!
Microsoft has already told people that setting the telemetry setting to "0" on the non-enterprise version is equivalent to setting it to "1", that is, it will still send basic telemetry to Microsoft. So the registry tweaks don't work any better than the formal control sets. Some people have suggested squashing some new services in articles, but better to let people discover whether some errors get logged due to this.
Yes, I think this is obvious, but the real situation is to first set up a system where you can convert from a "home" currency to a currency that the retailer will accept, and then make an electronic transaction. Bitcoin is just a special case of this, it might even be added after people are already finding the system useful to pay a cooperating retailer in (pounds, dollar, euro, "loony") from their (pounds, dollar, euro, "loony") account. It is not the currency that counts, its that you have the network of retailers set up for the transaction, and it makes sense for other currencies, not just Bitcoin. Bitcoin is merely one of the more questionable currencies one could use in this system, or is used as some sort of Pavlovian stimulus for the non-thinking investor.
Not really too impressive, as the first two were done by others. The last device was an EO Communicator, which probably could do what they showed it doing with an expensive subscription (or maybe just a promised soon feature). It was a competitor to the Newton and introduced about the same time. This is probably really mainly an ad for that, promising future features.
I think you are missing the point. Sure, the encrypted data looks like noise. But the *unencrypted* data never looks like noise. Therefore, you can throw away all partial decrypts that look too much like noise as soon as you see it is the case. An encryption scheme is an invertible function, but much effort has been spent looking at the qualities of the right side. But one can trim the set of functions based on the qualities of the left side, also.
Nearly certainly NOT hyperbolic, but a very elongated ellipse from an Oort cloud. You have a lot more than three bodies in the Oort cloud, where it will be traveling with lowest velocity. Indeed, it could be the first time that this object lost enough energy to take a very eccentric ellipse right by the sun, rather than a more circular ellipse out at the Oort cloud. A hyperbolic orbit is interstellar.
Another cultural difference for-instance (Gays):
> A poll conducted in October, 2012, found that 49 percent of Iowa voters were in favor of gay marriage, up
> from 41 percent just a year earlier.
Here in Virginia, we have an attorney general who thinks he can score political capital defending an anti-sodomy law.
A big difference between the Midwest "Can't we get along" culture and the Southern "My Bible sez"
[ from someone who is familiar with both]
Similar profile to Colorado and Michigan - 25% Evangelical, 23% Catholic - and with a high Lutheran population in the bulk, from Northern European populations not noted for being demonstrative on religion.
Night and day compared to the *real* Bible-belt state in which I live.
Wrong culture - it is not Arkansas, in the evangelical Bible belt. See Iowa Wikipedia - biggest religious groups Lutherans and Catholics, low populations of Hispanics and other minorities. Manufacturing 21% of GDP, 6.6% unemployment, state credit rating AAA. In other words, think of a really big suburb.
