Until now I would say comcast was the worst ISP I had ever dealt with, but since taking over the reigns from Verizon, Frontier has hands down provided a worse experience, literally from minute one. I have never had more issues with my connectivity. I am counting the days until I move out of their coverage area and back into Verizon FiOS territory(union bitching aside). At this point even comcast is looking attractive again.
Every one of those Lyft/Uber drivers has PERSONAL car insurance. If they are driving people around and get in an accident, both driver and passenger(s) are likely to be left high and dry because they didn't have commercial coverage. Look into the blanket insurance policies cab companies have to cover liability, then compare it to these "ride sharing" businesses. As contract workers they have to provide their own coverage.
Next time you hop into your Lyft/Uber ride, dwell on that, and wonder if that was the smell of alcohol on your drivers breath.
No word on if regional cost of living was factored in. $100k a year in San Francisco will get you a broom closet you share with 8 other smug hipsters, or if you live in BFE $100k would have you living like a king in a gold plated double wide trailer. Also costs of utilities vary greatly across regions, not to mention continents/hemispheres.
So while DevOps engineers make more, due to their location they could be living in a van down by the river, and be upside down on their payments for the van.
Well, if fucking over those you are responsible for is the definition of politician, then she's more than qualified. Let's also talk about what a great idea it is to put someone who was embroiled in a spying scandal surrounding the company they led in charge of an intelligence community...embroiled in a spying scandal.
As a former HP plod the mandatory holiday office closure is nothing new. We were required to hold on to vacation to accommodate the holiday closure. As a road warrior I didn't mind, as around Christmastime travelling becomes more of a nightmare than it already is. From a business point of view it makes sense as well, as the majority of client staffers are out on holiday, and little gets done.
To point out he benifits of a fuel cell to retroneo who wrote 'I don't get it at all' a fuel cell has the potential for being recharged in a manner of seconds, as you replace the material that it derives it power from (like recharging a butane lighter from a pressurized can, or refuelling your car...), as opposed to plugging in and having to wait for your battery to recharge.
Being someone who travels on a weekly basis, and seeing the minor nightmare that is airport security, I wonder what category a refill cartridge for a fuel cell would fall under? Would they be sold in airport shops or banned altogether?
Obviously someone with a fuel cell powered cell or laptop would be screwed by the TSA and their appearance of security if a fuel cell refill cartridge contained more than the 3 fluid ounces of liquid. Even more so if the refill cartridges housed a highly combustable material.
That was one of a limited production run made by a company called Nightmare Armor Studios for the release of Halo3. It was features on the cover of a few gaming magazines prior to the release.
Here's a link to see some of their stuff:
Over all incredibly impressive work.
It's interesting to see what others are saying about their N95's, as I've apparently had a string of good luck with my handset. No lock ups, no memory issues, slider is built solidly and gives no issues with creaking open or closed.
Now, having had an N73 as my previous handset, I can say my only complaint with the N95 thus far is the battery life, but I have yet to actually kill the battery in a day full of heavy usage (read: watching full length movies, listening to music, reading ebooks, and talking 2+hours on the phone over the span of a day). This is also with bluetooth on, and wifi usage (but not continual scanning).
Other than the small complaint of the battery, I've been continuously impressed with improved performance as far as speed of apps loading and pure functionality of the handset itself.
Granted, the first thing I did once I got the handset was plug it in and upgrade the firmware.
