"And asking people to surrender their rights is totalitarian."
Have we all suddenly become fans of patents (because isn't that a clear example of IP)?
The debate around intellectual property has certainly taken some rather unexpected twists (and I would challenge anyone to make the bold claim they saw this coming 20 years ago).
Interesting point, and not universally accepted. But extrapolating from this, we could say the 'active' connector (involving spring loading) is female; this definition makes identification of USB 'sex' quite simple. If the spring is just there to hold the plug (ground connection) then the socket is still male.
Earth pins (in the socket) are just weird--anyone care to hypothesise (or explain) why they were invented?
According to 'Fowler's', ethics is the principle, morals the practice; by which means it is concluded that ethical and moral (adjective) are much the same. Additionally that the term 'ethical' is often used because 'moral' has connotations of sexual 'misbehaviour'. Oh for the days UK public servants read and quoted these (thought-provoking, not necessarily absolutely definitive) sources.
It seems more that the journalism has been tailored for those less inquisitive and more willing to believe 'new tech'. I'm sure there is an explanation--I would guess when it was removed from the vacuum in order to compare to the other standards.
Are there any physicists around who can argue that gold would not have been a better choice?
I'm not going to throw a snide remark, but how often I've heard wise men warn us against the use of the word 'democratic' for a nation or a party is cause for thought.
Disclaimer: I get to watch the US show from afar. Serves them right too--imposing their Broadway _and_ Hollywood infections on the rest of the world.
Please explain the joke (for readers who may be foreign). Was the lemonade stand IoT enabled? Maybe a physical 'like' button that only required Lucy's customers to accept the biometric Ts&C? Was she going to ride off on that $100 bike just as Charley was about to kick the ball?
