Never mind swimming, how about passing a watch under a cold tap (faucet in the US?). Round here, domestic water pressure's about 40m.

The downvotes may be from people who know that HP stopped giving free Instant Ink with new printers in 2020.
They had announced they were ending free Instant Ink completely but eventually agreed to honour previous commitments and continue it for the existing printers of customers already on the program. https://www.theregister.com/2020/12/17/hp_reinstates_free_tier_printing_plan/
Yes, in the US a team can make a joint application.
"[w]hen an invention is made by two or more persons jointly, they shall apply for patent jointly and each make the required oath, except as otherwise provided in this title. Inventors may apply for a patent jointly even though (1) they did not physically work together or at the same time, (2) each did not make the same type or amount of contribution, or (3) each did not make a contribution to the subject matter of every claim of the patent."
They could measure how quickly you respond to different stimuli and even your eye movements while taking in information. For example, if you often look at timetables or departure/arrival boards, do you generally dwell on them longer or more briefly than the general population? Do you keep looking back at the same information or move on?
Over time, that might tell us something about how quickly you take in information and about your short-term memory. Some collection of such data will probably turn out to indicate the onset and progress of dementia. Responses while drunk or drugged will probably be different too. It might take a lot of AIs chewing through a lot of data to find the reliable signals, but this is the 21st century.
The total seems to be a calculation of extra (excess) profit made by Apple through its App Store, mainly in terms of its return on capital employed and its weighted average cost of capital. That's then been divided by an estimated 19.6 million consumers who have made app-related purchases.
It might be interesting to check that by estimating how much the average user spends on or in apps, but the tribunal doesn't mention either side doing that. The tribunal's pretty clear that the calculations will be a matter for trial, not for deciding whether it can go to trial.
That makes another nice point. In documentation (as opposed to exams), if you're telling the reader to do something that's against expectations, abnormal or downright weird, say so. You'll reassure them, carry them with you, retain their confidence in TFM, and have a much better chance of avoiding that disaster!
The UK government makes the basics for any registration number freely available. https://www.gov.uk/check-vehicle-tax gives you vehicle's make and colour, year of manufacture, month of first registration, fuel type, cylinder capacity and more. https://www.check-mot.service.gov.uk gives model, plus date, mileage and pass/fail for each test. There's enough there to allow a rough valuation.
Outlook 2019 sometimes offers "if there are problems with how this message is displayed, click here to view it in a we browser" That produces an .mht file.
Set those to open in Edge and I see plain text only – even the links are plain and nonfunctional. Set IE11 as the default (in W10 21H2 fully updated) and IE11 springs to life and opens it very nicely, thank you.
The user had discovered that when one line was full, tabbing would move the cursor to the start of a new line.
Mechanical typewriters didn't automatically move to the next line. Users had to operate the carriage return lever to return the paper carriage to its start position, which was usually set to perform a line feed too.
There are demonstrations beginning at approximately 1:46.
Pascal, you cited a Wikipedia article that's specifically restricted to school shootings from 2000 onwards. There were many school shootings before then and there have been many other mass shootings before 2000 too. I would have thought you'd have heard of some.
Does the name George Banks ring a bell, or the University of Texas Tower shooting? Perhaps something like the San Diego McDonalds massacre was too commonplace, but surely you know the term "going postal" sprang from actual events such as the Edmond killing of 14 postal workers by a colleague in 1986?
It didn't take the internet for "wackos" to discover "there were a lot of other wackos out there"; the United States used to have a thriving newspaper industry that covered many such events extensively and 1999's Columbine School massacre was even the subject of a Roger Moore documentary. Some weren't so widely reported, true; it's only recently there's been much coverage of the killing of tens or hundreds in Tulsa on May 31 and June 1, 1921, when a whole bunch of killers didn't feel "alone, isolated".
I don't think you can blame the internet for something that happened a hundred and one years ago.
Shootings did not "start in 2000". When you read that Wikipedia article, you didn't notice
"19th and 20th centuries : Main article: List of school shootings in the United States (before 2000)"
Warning: that list of school shootings before 2000 is very long, and it's incomplete.
We need all the non-violent people to have guns so they can perma-ban the violent people, and the people that look like they might be violent, and the people that might stop the non-violent people having guns, and the ones that are trying to destroy our country, and the ones that did us wrong.
Are there any examples of sites that run much better in Android phone browsers than on iPhones under Webkit?
Sure, most will be written to run the same on both and not take advantage of extra capabilities. But it would be great if someone, somewhere, provided some demonstration (or better yet, some usefully functioning site) of this article's central plank.
More from that application: "HP’s expert ... claimed that HP suffered damages owing to market uncertainty resulting from both (1) Oracle’s March 2011 announcement that it would stop offering future software versions on Itanium, and (2) Oracle’s August 2012 announcement that it would appeal the court’s Phase I ruling."
IANAL and I haven't kept track but it seems Oracle argued they were being penalised for appealing.
It's all very convoluted but this bit from Oracle's application to the Supremes seems key: "Oracle argued, among other things, that the damages calculation by HP’s expert was predicated in part on Oracle’s announced intent to appeal the trial court’s ruling, which effectively penalized Oracle for exercising its rights under the Petition Clause."
The Petition Clause of the First Amendment protects, they said, their right to petition the courts (appeal) without being penalised.
> you've got to ask yourself how the cyclist got into this situation
That's a picture of one of the test runs. They're testing the car's response to intersection, not who's in the right, which direction has priority, which road user has what level of training, or how heavily armoured anyone is.
Of the three vehicles tested, one never noticed the dummy cyclist on an intersecting trajectory. It's not that it braked too late, or didn't swerve enough, or anything like that. It repeatedly failed to detect the cyclist, to throw up any detection alert, or brake. It struck the cyclist every time.
Conditions, speeds and distances were sufficient for other vehicles to respond. One was very consistent, one wasn't, but the Subaru Forester failed every time. You can't excuse that by asking questions about whether the test dummy was careful enough or having a go at cyclists generally, or declaring that you "have a pedal cycle".
