Re: A chance for internet democracy ...
Why? That would be like ousting Firefox CEO for his political views... Oh wait...

He can say what he wants, and so can his employees, customers and shareholders.
If your talent threatens to leave because of CEO and users threaten to boycott the product, then the "freedom of speech" ends with shareholders doing what they think is right for the company. Mozilla surely must have plenty gay people working there, surely they don't want to work for CEO who's actively campaigning against their human rights. Like I would never work for some weirdo creationist donating money to destroy science education in schools.
It wasn't an explosion, it is an expansion or inflation (think of it as a balloon rather than a bomb, a word "bang" causes confusion). The rapid expansion had the side effects of forming atoms, then particles, etc.. which resulted later in planets, stars, galaxies, dust, meteors, etc.. Universe in general is still expanding. But in our tiny small fraction, which we call "observable universe" with only trillions of galaxies, the local rules apply, not the global rules of expansion.
Within these local rules, gravity plays much more important role than expansion. Due to gravity,things in space circle around other things in space, which then occasionally cause interference in their paths and galaxies collide. We will collide with Andromeda at some point, but don't fear. Galactic collisions are very slow and the space between objects is so huge, we won't notice anything.
There are also some mega events happening, like supernova explosions - formations of neutron stars and black holes, that alter the gravitational patterns of the objects, hence sometimes bringing them closer together.
They can but they don't. That's why non-Google vendors are now posting instruction videos and how to's on their site, as they know their emails will be missed by default. Google made a choice for you what you want to read and what you want to skip. Gmail is now de-facto vehicle for Google ad delivery with other vendors blocked. G+ is a personal data scrap vehicle, or trying to become one.
Is the new word for government incompetence and over spending. Were it done by even the most expensive tech firm, the cost might be below 100m, and at least one person would test it.
During the commonwealth games in India, many cases of sebelius were reported, but weren't properly investigated due to sebelius that is widespread in Indian government.
Investing in solar energy turned out to be a sebelius for Obama administration.
Can somebody put that into dictionary please?
>>Even worse, once they have you hacked they can add that little extra to make you look positively criminal.
All great concerns, but I don't frankly give a shit. If they (political factions) want to use it against each other let them use it, and let them mutually annihilate each other. I'll make sure they can't do any harm to me with the data they have. All I need to do is stop using Gmail and Chrome, and 98% problem solved.
>> Micro SD is a joke - so you are really going to carry a tablet then a load of 32Gb micro SD cards around.
Maybe some people do. I don't, but if we use to stash CD's, tapes, floppy's and vinyls, then simple SD card is the least of a hassle to have a collection of stuff on them. Why do you assume that if you don't have one, nobody has?
If it wasn't for the Google data grab that comes with any Android phone. They try to suck you into their walled-garden-social-advertising network on any step possible. Download something from Google Play, you immediately have your G+ page and and email, which they can then use to advertise stuff. Crazy.
No really, where? They have a system with one table database, two columns, max single record of 140 characters. They need a good managed hosting, one developer for their website, one for mobile, and if they want to be fancy a dedicated designer. We're talking about 5 people company + managed hosting with extremely high bandwidth bill. Still, it can't amount to what they burn, not even close.
I'm ready to become your CEO, it can't be worse than what you already have, right? I need 7 digit salary for 2 years, and total control, I don't have time for internal politics and such. Rest we'll figure out. If someone from Blackberry sees this, reply to my comment and we'll take it from there. You have 4 days to reply, thanks.
No, those questions you quoted are wrong. I didn't write those things. It can be summarised:
"Would you want to wear glasses although you have a perfectly good eyesight, just to be able to make a phone call or browse internet?"
Has nothing to do with travel or space exploration, which I admire. Give me ONE great use case for a healthy human to wear electronic glasses around. Special cases such as sunglasses, 3D virtual reality, HUD's, or military uses don't count.
Oh sh***, wait till I put my glasses on.
> Can you see what's playing in the movies today?
Yeah, wait till I put my glasses on.
> Let me see the reviews
Here you go, put my glasses on.
> The ratings for XYZ movie are horrible, I'm not watching it
Let me see, give me my glasses back so I can put my glasses on
> Ok, let's watch it, how do we get there?
I'll print the map, it's not allowed to drive with my glasses on
A decently educated human brain carries a software that was made by accumulating knowledge in written form, for well over 6k years (in one way or the other). On top of that you're improving it yourself to fit your needs every day, and you get daily sensory input from some highly capable devices.
No, not tested CAD. Just general usage and programming, the disgusting metro, switching back and forth, even Skype not working properly although MS owns it, strange new gestures and ridiculous navigation. It's like MS wanted to bring the worst of two worlds together (tablet + workstation). I returned the device, and so did my buddy.
@AC: See that's the point, you DON'T install CAD on iPad or Nexus. You install it on the device where you can actually perform some work, hopefully with a 22"+ screen as well. You use iPad or Nexus to entertain yourself, read, view guitar tabs, have it as a juke-box, etc. You don't mix tablets and PC's for doing the same on both.
Are you mad? Spotify *requires* FB account and there's no other way to open your account except with FB. Can't use your email. In other words, no FB account no Spotify account. This is not integration, this is called acquisition. Spotify is Zuck's b*tch. Obviously you don't have an account so why are you pulling things out of your arse?
MS will never embrace it so this might be a nail in the coffin for a wide adoption. Strange as Google has invested or open sourced 100's of millions worth of tech into WebRTC and is now letting MS stop its penetration as they please. Unless they've done a deal already and MS plans to support it, which I highly doubt.
I still can't select all unread emails at once, just a stupid endless scroll. It seems to be receiving emails much slower than other emails, attracts the most spam somehow, chat bots spawning all the time, and it seems that Yahoo! is sharing everything I do to all my previous contants. PoS IMHO, stopped using it completely.
