Re: IBM managers are thieves!
They are not selling the "microprocessors/high-end super computers CPUs unit". They are selling the fabs that made such processors, with a commitment from Global Foundries to manufacture them. There is a big difference.
Re: A year?
Fraud detection is not done by humans, but by computers that analyze patterns in transactions.
Re: Biased at all?
It's a phone, your fingerprints are all over it already.
Re: Great Moral Compass, There
I would hope that most Facebook users realize from the get go that they are the product being sold, Facebook makes money from somewhere else, not them. The fact that the government might be somewhere in a dark corner sucking down data is not as obvious.
Actually, no. You need to know the levels in the entire water distribution system. The level drops with time spent in the pipes, and other factors, such as temperature. You need to have enough product put in at the front end to ensure that the water coming at all the other ends is OK. Water pipes leak, good water leaks out, bad things leak in.
To my knowledge, Inert gas extinguishers, or anything else, will not help much in a lithium ion battery fire. As they burn they produce their own oxygen. With this kind of fire, you just try to keep anything else from igniting and wait for the fire to burn itself out. Note that it took two hours after the firefighters arrived until the fire was out.
Re: why they don't use pen and paper
As a student, I recall taking machine-scored multiple choice tests with many many questions, using a pencil to fill in the little bubbles. If somebody cannot handle 30 for reasons that are not due to a physical disability, perhaps they should reconsider voting at all.
But yes, I'm not quite sure why some local positions are elected and not appointed. Would anyone suggest electing the Secretary of Defense?
Re: But who has an app store up their sleeve?
I think most Samsung Android phones come with the Google Play app store. Does Google kick back some of that revenue to the handset maker? I had not heard that.
Re: Great language name! Not confusing at all?
I give you PL/1: "Programming Language One".
The Hudson River is tidal up to Albany and the salt line can get as far upstream as Poughkeepsie.
Re: Re: @Daivd Kelly
If that is what you want, buy a used Lotus Elise.
That would help the projectile. What you want is a hat that is perfectly absorbent at the laser frequency.
