Vampire tap? Boy haven't heard that in a LOOOONG time.
My only complaint with Nexus 7 2013 is battery time. After 5.0 and now 5.1 update, the battery just runs out quit quickly and charged slowly. Perhaps the battery on this slab is going, but I'll miss it. Morning exercise on treadmill wouldn't be the same without this tablet for me to do my morning reading.
I'm not defending the SAIC's action. It was a stupid risk, and this will come up on his next review. It was also kind of stupid for the prosecutor to use this kind of tainted evidence as they really should know better.
The reason why they have to do this kind of ruse is that FBI was running out of time. The betting ring was for the duration of World Cup. I figure the SAIC who authorized this thought by the time they got a judge to sign off on the warrant, the gamblers would be long gone. Better to ask forgiveness than permission. Well in this case, forgiveness is not forthcoming.
Former LAUSD superintendent John Deasy had a sweetheart deal with some of his buddies to supply the school district with these now obsolete fondleslab. He uses construction capital fund (stuff that's supposed to go towards building stuff that'll last longer than 10 years) to pay for these. He didn't bother trying to get bulk discount from Apple or from any other suppliers. Deasy is now under indictment for corruption.
A much underrated satire, Demolition Man where they LoJacked every citizen of San Angelos. So the police department figures that their fugitive criminal would be hard press to get any money, since all transaction is based on the biometric chip on the hand. John Spartan is quit put off by this draconic development but added that Simon Phoenix only need to rip off some unfortunate soul's arm to get what he needed.
Prius C IS build on Yaris platform, so this is pretty much Prius C for the European market.
Further east. Tim have been working 'round the world doing his bit as the rare earth trader.
You mean the wannabe hipsters that lounges around coffee shop pretending to write their Great American Novel(tm)? Hey, there's gold to be mine there.
How dare you question the wisdom of the ruling class?
EFF has found out that it's choke full of NSA/FBI friendly backdoors. Yep, another we'll find out what's in it after we vote for it.
You get 2/3 most of the time. In this case, it's sort of cheaper (less moving parts, less mass into orbit) and good (if it works). And just confirming my initial thought, slow.
In 2010, she picked up Razzie for "All About Steve" in person, and then go on to pick up Oscar for "Blind Side" 24 hours later.
It's the Obamaphone baby. Obama will pay my mortgage.
SpaceX did ink a deal to build their landing pad on one of the disused Air Force launching pad in the Cape. So not too far in the future. Landing on solid ground is got to be easier than a floating platform in the sea.
Bad Luck? It's bad luck that they didn't get to experiment on a paying customer's dime, but they still got paid. And from the customer's point of view, the launch was a success, their bird is now in space.
Or they have a culture of discouraging the lowly peons from asking their boss (or in this case, the actual person purportedly to have authorize the transfer). A single phone call would've solve the problem.
The charge of soliciting hits on 6 individuals are on a separate docket. Admitting to being DPR doesn't help in this case. That being said, this case hinges on the government proving that he was DPR and that goes a long way to their next case of hiring hitman to eliminating his former employee/competitors.
For the most part, I use the magical phrase, "Please transfer this call to your supervisor". I may have to us the same 7 words a couple of times.
Asian are counted as white for SJW quota. We are over represented as it is.
As someone whose healthcare plan only got worse and more expensive after Obamacare kicked in (I'm in California), I'm chalking this one up as pure incompetent. They can barely get the system up and running, did zero load testing, and you actually expect them to follow any semblance of privacy concern?
They're only cheap due to government subsidy. Hey, I got an great idea, Unicorn Fart power. 100% all natural, 100% renewable. Where do I get my subsidy?
Just the other day I was browsing through twitch.tv and came accross this 400lb guy, naked in the insert video playing a game. I cannot unsee what I saw.
You think God of Internet have a sense of humor? After banning Redskins gears, the site goes down.
Why? Because they can. Look it doesn't have to make sense. To them it's just their exercising of their divine ordained right as bureaucrats. Know your place serfs.
There's no reasoning with avowed socialists. I've stopped doing that a long time ago. Let them have their own little piece of socialist heaven and leave us alone.
Once you paid the Dane-geld, you'll never be rid of Dane.
The proper response is to crush the Dane.
£1.3million is the amount he stole in the form of excess order. He had to sell these items to unknown third party. I'd say he made less than 40% on that.
There is literally NOTHING preventing those shareholder to pay more taxes. Open your checkbook and write a check to Uncle Sam.
They thought with their political connection that they could smooth any objection from FCC. Physic has a different story in store.
Guess it still have some trick up its sleeves to show us?
He can do a Joker money pyre ala The Dark Knight, and it's still his money.
As the excellent XKCD comic Ice Sheets http://xkcd.com/1225/ demostrates, the vast majority of North American simply cannot survive the oncoming of another Ice Age. We simply have to move down south.
It's one of those lets get some data on whether we can actually salvage the rocket. They didn't save the rocket, but they did managed to get some good data for future test. All of this while on someone else's dime.
You will not question the ONE TRUE FAITH of Global Warming. Even as we freeze to death, it's still our fault that the world is going to boil.
I'm pretty sure that NASA have send their fair share if Irishman up to space. Now if we're to qualified it as the first Irish Rock Musician in space...
Have no worry Apple, LAUSD is about to give you a boatload of money. Using construction bond (those are supposed to use for construction of school buildings, payoff in 30 years), the folks that educated me from Elementary through High School are going to buy every student in the system (many of them are either illiterate (all language) or non-English speaking) their shiny iPad that's obsolete in 3 years, at which point, over half would've already been broken or sold...
Instagram, being a private company have little or no debt or pension liability. So the billion that Facebook buys what they think is 1 billion of worth.
Washington Post Media is loaded with long term debt and especially large amount of pension liability. Sure they have lots of real estate properties that Bezo could potentially leverage to pay off, but still, the $250 million doesn't exactly reveal the true cost.
WPM manged to suckered Barry Dillard into buying Newsweek for $1, and Dillard realized much too late that he overpaid due to debt and pension liability. Dillard have sold it to some other sucker.
The pilot on the remote control might get tired. But they work in shifts.
The launch crew's visual queue is not all for the pilot. Remember, the catapult operator (sitting in a semi-sunk control box), the tower (on the Island), the other folks around the deck all takes their queue from the launch crew and his visual signals. Launching a plane from the deck of a carrier is less about a pilot than everyone else around. Only after he's launched does he really take control.
Complex tax code favors those with the resource to exploit them. Just because you think you're taxing "THE MAN" doesn't mean you're doing squat.
Why would I trust my life in a hardware designed by my enemy? Why introduce another element that can screwed up when you actually need it?
If it can get away with that. That's pretty much the only way they can their paws on those money.
Apple is doing what is in its Fiduciary Duty to legally minimize tax expenditure to the benefit of its shareholder. To do otherwise will invite shareholder lawsuit. Seriously, if Congress want that money back, simply lower the tax rate of repatriation profit down to something like 5% and see those money roll back. 5% of something is infinitely greater than 35% of nothing.
Go and read the short story Inconstant Moon by Larry Niven. It's the end of the world.
While his singing voice is fine, his guitar need a bit of work. Still, Bowie didn't play his version while floating in space.
April 1 was 21 days ago...
I'm pretty sure for low enough price, we can recycle RS232 cable to some other purpose other than its original purpose. It only have to make economical sense.
If it's economical to break down the component, it'll be done. Otherwise, it'll be dispose of.
