Re: No women, not even top-of-the-line engineers
I don't think Islam strictly forbids women from working, however I do believe Kuwaitis' sexual repression may play a part in it.

I have images of my wife during pregnancy. Very unflattering, but neither of us would want the photos to be exposed. I also have photos of my 3yo daughter.
If some stranger goes snooping and looking at the photos, I would have a strong urgency to punch the twat, no matter how likely it is they will win the fight. I'm not the type of person to fight, but I'd do it in that scenario.
The only reason to look at photos is to maybe test the camera. No other fucking reason exists.
All phones should come with a repair mode to restrict the OS to extremely basic functions, sandboxing apps like the camera and photos.
What do you mean?
Touch screen is great, except from all those damn times you need to keep your eyes on the damn road.
My fuckingg car's heating controls are touch screen (2014 insignia), I do not understand how anyone thought it was a good idea. If I wasn't lazy or cheap I'd buy a crappy screen protector and stick cutouts, so I can feel my way round.
If the US was smart, they would have wanted to give Rouhani more leeway, to appease the Iranian population. That way they would keep voting for moderates instead of another jimmy jab for president. Perhaps one day the Supreme Leader role would no longer have existed.
Perhaps the US are smart and don't want Iran to progress.
Isn't it time we stop vaccinating our own population and ensure the majority of the world have vaccinated their over 50s?
If we are only one of a few countries to have vaccinated all of our countrymen, then we might end up being back in full lockdown once a deadly mutant variant is back in our population, one which escapes our vaccines.
Please do tell me what a good fucking alternative is? The Windows Phone was one, but that was Nadella-rized.
I have had enough Android phones to realise that OS was a terrible piece of shit, and the upgrade support was next to nothing. Fuck expandable memory, "No Storage space left". What the fuck are you onabout...there's 32gb left on the memory card. Oh I see, bloated ROM with just a few of my installed apps allowing me to move it to external memory. Sure that was like 10 years ago and I was a cheap bastard being a student, but I'm not gonna waste my money on the unknown devil.
My iPhone 8 plus is on its third year, with only recently experiencing some hardware issues, but that would likely be down to my daughter. Yes, I've had some issues but it mostly just works. I'm not interested in changing phones every couple of years so I'd much rather my phone last for 4+ years.
It seems you have forgotten to mention our yearly Muslamic Convention. You know, the one where us Muslims plan how to piss the world off and how to take it over.
You know the one, it's just before the yearly Husband/Boyfriend convention, where us guys plan how to piss our wives and girlfriends off. Why do you think us Muzzies were always early for it? It wasn't just because we're eager for the convention.
Also, us Muslims are all half lizard people, just to add to the Icke-crazy.
One has to ask what sexual assault/harassment has to do with gender fluidity.
But, yes, why. Maybe his penis was too long so, as per NTFS and FAT32, had to be cut and stored elsewhere (for, er, backwards compatibility*).
*ahem. Gives a whole new meaning to backwards compatibility.
I enjoyed the first one, though that may have something to do with being Muslim, or I just thought the concept was awesome. Then from 2 onwards it seemed like they were in it for the money and it was less about the origins of assassins.
Then I grew a bit older and only played battlefield. Now I'm much older and haven't got time to commit to console games.
There's been many instances where I said "it's likely they'll change their minds on this so we should make the code easy to change". My assumptions were correct, they changed their minds. But I did not anticipate the level of change in the requirements. To the point where unit tests would have to be rewritten extensively, and the code-changes meant existing tests would be broken.
The thing is, a moment of stupidity can hit anybody and that's what they're hoping for. A moment of stupidity.
A few months ago we were warned of a phishing email and it looked legitimate as well. Not sure how they were able to get the signature but they did that very well.
It doesn't matter if the hardware is identical, game consoles are locked down primarily for gaming plus a few other entertainment things. Hence the name "game console". Neither MS nor Sony ever said "There's an app for that" for their console, nor do they advertise it as being able to do multiple things.
Does Xbox allow MS Office? I don't think it does, neither should it do so.
We are comparing Apples to Oranges, people don't go on their XBOX to browse the web, do they? They may watch Netflix or whatever, since the console is already there and connected to the TV, but no one will think I'll check my emails whilst I'm here. Smart Phones on the other hand, are pocket PCs and should be treated as such. I browse the web on it, I check my emails, I play the odd game, it's a fucking PC
Perhaps I do, but I very honestly don't believe I have a bias. I have a PS4--last time I powered it up was a few years ago when I had the time to play games. However, I do own an iPhone and enjoy it more than previous phones.
Except games consoles are usually used for gaming, with some other entertainment apps available for consumption. So Microsoft or Sony not allowing other game stores isn't a problem because that's the whole point of the console.
As for MS taking a cut per game, or Sony for that matter, is because the consoles would be sold at a loss, with the profit taken from games sold.
My iPhone 8 Plus is a PC with phone and SMS capabilities; I use it for web browsing and non-phone activities more than the telephony stuff.
So iOS should be compared to PCs instead of Gaming consoles.
I thought the issue was Apple wanted all subscriptions to go via their payment system, and they don't want you to be able to distribute content through your app, which they otherwise could. Netflix et al being the exception.
So it will be like you offering a service of using any car seat cover, but you have to pay £30 p/mo. Vauxhall says "fuck off, mate. I sell seat covers so you can't. Even so, your customers would have had to pay us and we'll take a cut. You can't tell them to pay you by cheque, mate."
Actually, Patient Zero is from the future and time-travelled back to 2019 to see what the big fuss is about with some virus everyone in their time treats as our common cold; we are a bunch of pussies, they think.
Little did they know they unleashed the virus onto the rest of us.
Plus they're dedicated gaming computers, which though you can download some apps, are still used very largely for gaming.
Smartphones on the other hand are dedicated call and messaging computers, but I would confidently say they aren't largely used for those functions. Web browsing, gaming, and various other things are also used on these.
