Ben Carson should go back to being a surgeon -- he was an asset there.
Some years ago I had to figure out if the two and a half years of accruals I had towards the five year minimum required for entitlement to the IBM DB pension was worth anything. I decided it wasn't, and made job choices accordingly.
The world would be a more just place if the court had proven me wrong.
Lorry puts on turn signal, road train parts to let him in.
Maybe the processor bug makes a function call fail, and that failure is caught by an exception? Unless the exception logs a message that could be a silent cause of slowness.
That's why you send a robotic ship ahead that makes the fuel for you. You only launch when the refining rocket says "I've got fuel, any takers?"
So what word do you use to describe this situation?
"I broke your experience of _____, you have no choice in the matter, and I profit".
Because that is exactly how I see the situation. You may disagree, feeling that the experience is not broken, but failing to give a general and easily accessed opt-opt is not right.
Having consulted a thesaurus "coercion" may be more appropriate, but extortion isn't far off.
It breaks my search history, as I didn't go to the originating website.
It breaks my offline reading with Pocket, as I can no longer search for articles the same way.
That's the start of the issues, I've posted elsewhere in the comments in more detail.

Tackling the AMP users one site at a time. :-)
Originally posted at https://plus.google.com/+AlanPeery/posts/7E8cRhfx587, I hit on some different aspects of why AMP is a technology that should die.
Speeding up the Web, what could be wrong with that?
Google has implemented something called AMP into the Google+ Android app, and on a post there I ended up writing a substantial critique of AMP.
AMP is a new Google technology I'm not fond of, because
1) It's breaking my reading and bookmarking workflow and
2) It centralizes more power with google and
3) It might hurt the originating website's viability and
4) For the same original URL, users in Google+ (and probably soon Gmail) get different URLs depending on what device they read on and
5) There's no easy way for me to opt out that I have found
In very quick summary, an "Accelerated Mobile Page" link points back to cached content is substituted for the direct link to a website if that website opts in. The page loads faster, but the link points back to Google rather than the original site (leading to complaint #1 as I can no longer track by site, etc), and Google knows I have followed it (#2) and the website doesn't get the traffic (complaint #3) though there may be a reporting mechanism I am not familiar with and they do have to opt in.
I'm only getting a grip with how AMP shows up now, and it changes depending on where you're reading content. When I first read the original post I was using my mobile phone, and the URL shown in the Google+ post was an AMP style URL -- so I edited the URL by hand into a normal URL by hand as I thought the original poster had posted an AMP URL. Looking at the original post in the a PC web browser I saw the normal URL. We suddenly have two URLs instead of one which makes confusion possible (#4).
The final bit is that I haven't been able to find a way to disable the AMP mechanism from affecting me personally, as Google+ doesn't make this an option(#5). This means my workflow is broken, as the URLs I add to Pocket for offline reading when I am using my phone don't reference the real website.
The original URL, with some editing so you can see the URL fully:
http:// www.smh.com.au /world/us-election/trumps-tech-adviser-peter-thiel-backs-utopian-technology-less-sure-democracy-20161116-gsqrnu.html
The AMP'd URL that I see when using my Android phone:
https:// www.google.com /amp/s/amp.smh.com.au/world/us-election/trumps-tech-adviser-peter-thiel-backs-utopian-technology-less-sure-democracy-20161116-gsqrnu.html
Next time use the vote instead for the Liberal Democrats -- who have a sensible policy in this area if memory serves...
Not if you have been forward looking, and ordered bags with built-in flotation device using the company cards...
For most people, yes. But for the frugal or the very income-limited, there is a huge role for over the air reception. Hopefully with a PVR, as the benefits of time-shifting and advert avoidance are huge.

Did you add the cost of your network into the above computation?
Why is a comment like this made as Anonymous Coward? If true, it's neither embarrassing nor likely to be something that couldn't be said because the policies of the person's employer requires clearance first.
Just because you said Yes once, shouldn't mean you've said it for all time...
Don't you turn your heating down at night?
Or when you leave the house for 12 hours? If you don't do this, you're wasting money heating an unoccupied house.
Sounds like you've found some nice kit on Amazon, stuff that would be hard to dig out amidst everything they carry. Could you post links to the kit?
You just assumed the household has a regular occupancy pattern. That's not true for all households, and those with irregular patterns do have a use for "warm up the house, I've arrived back from the sales trip" functionality.

I think you've got it backwards -- this makes it *much* easier for thieves.
This will make it *easier* for devices to be copied at the border, as they will be out of the traveler's hands and thus more vulnerable.
The scope of this topic could be described as list of websites -> list of libraries -> library -> list of vulnerable versions -> list of vulnerabilities in each version -> technical details of each vulnerability. The paper only looks at the first four components. If you're looking the details in components 5 & 6, start with the list from component 4 and consult each release note and CVE.

Seems you should be taking the population into account, and not just grads. If you're only hiring grads, you're practicing age discrimination.
The tablet portion has a USB port, something that is missing in the tablet portion of the Surface book. Lack of USB connectivity in the tablet means a lot less flexibility.
It's a USB Type-C 3.1 with Thunderbolt.
After you're done with the copies of data you're holding in a temporary filesystem, you clean out the temporary filesystem.
Just make sure you're in the right filesystem... :-(
There was the minor fact that Worldcom had been indulging in *lots* of financial shenanigans completely unrelated to EDS work, IIRC.
The prosecution side (aka crime lab), didn't do the test well and destroyed the evidence -- it wasn't there any longer to be lost by Clinton or the independent lab. That's all a right-wing distortion of facts. See my other comments in this chain for details and links.
re 3) So you're now alleging that *Hillary* covered something up in the sexual misbehavior of Bill, rather than being an uninformed spouse defending her husband?
re 5) Above you said 'because the rape evidence had become "lost" [while in HER custody]', implying per personal possession. Now you admit that your sources don't say when it was lost, or by who. It could have been lost by the police. It could have been lost by the independent lab. It's pretty unlikely that it was lost by the defense attorney, as they are not allowed to hold evidence for very good reasons. For Hillary to be blamed for this, it would have to proven that she turned either the police or the lab to illegal behavior.
But turns out the story is completely different than that. The police lab cut the evidence (a bloodstain) from the defendant's underwear, and after blood testing (not DNA, this is 1975) ended up tossing out the bit of material. So when the defense (Clinton) asked for the underwear to test (as required by her duties as public defender), there was nothing to test. The government lab had destroyed the evidence, collecting only a blood type, and it was their incompentence that let the defendant plead guilty and get a lighter sentence. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2f13f2awK4&feature=youtu.be, Hillary Clinton being interviewed about the case.)
Then you go onto the notion of defeating a polygraph test, but again offer no proof that Clinton coached the defendant to do so.
So you're blaming Clinton that the FBI failed to follow good process and show up with a warrant and get a copy of the full email server? Or show up with a warrant and oversee the extraction process?
Government related emails were requested, and provided. If the FBI failed to follow sensible process, leaving the individual involved with a reasonable understanding that requirements had been complied with, how is that the fault of the individual? Or must we all keep a copy of all our documents in case the relevant government agency decides to broaden their initial request years down the line?
A very nice summary of open issues on candidate Trump in that last paragraph -- well done.
Just because there is a large number of something doesn't imply anything will be found. Given that the FBI took a quite thorough look at a rather large pile of email and found no smoking guns makes it pretty likely that nothing will be found in the 35k emails very broadly estimated in this article.
Skip to #5 for the part of this response related directly to the article, or read on for US politics rebuttal.
Since you appear to bringing your politics into this, rather than sticking to the technical details of this well-written article, here is some relevant politics back at you:
1) It's pretty easy to explain Hillary's old time reporting spreadsheets from her time as an employee of Rose being in the White House. You move out of one house in Arkansas, you move into another -- random documents come with you unless you're particularly good about purging files.
2) Trump shredded documents that had been actually requested in a governmental investigation of racially biased leasing policies: http://europe.newsweek.com/donald-trump-companies-destroyed-emails-documents-515120?rm=eu Failing to note this given that we're in the final week before an election where Trump is the other candidate would be bias by exclusion.
3) How are the accusations against Bill Clinton around sexual misbhaviour relevant to email retention?
4) You should really provide a link to this supposed "lost evidence" as this summary http://www.snopes.com/hillary-clinton-freed-child-rapist-laughed-about-it/ doesn't mention it, depsite being apparently pretty complete.
5) The admin for Clinton's personal email sent in the emails matching matching a reasonable "government business" filter, and months later deleted the other email (eg personal) on the system after significant time for the other side to check that the data delivery had been fine. There was no requirement that Clinton maintain backups of personal email into the indefinite future AS THE GOVERNMENTAL EMAIL HAD ALREADY BEEN DELIVERED. For a well-written summary of the steps carried out, see this post: https://plus.google.com/+AmandaBlain/posts/6ugnBQCdL9S
That's just NIMBY in a different place. It has to be tested *somewhere* even for the difficult cases, so why should your roads be special?
There is also no indication that Teslas running under autopilot features are more dangerous than other cars under human piloting.
Rather the opposite of that. "It's just the every so often one of the meals gives them superpowers." Superpowers like automatic braking that avoids an otherwise occurring collision.
There are *many* other phrases that would be unique, and not trip false positives. I would go with "Nebuchadnezzar" myself.
A large part of the "OK, Google" insistence is about branding, and brand reinforcement, not technology.
Your points are valid, but no longer required if a simple button press/long press is required before the voice recognition starts.
I had a Windows phone, a fancy Lumia that was handed out to one lucky attendee at a Microsoft one day conference on Azure and other technologies.
* I couldn't adjust the font size small enough in any of the apps. I prefer to read emails more than 30 words or so at a time.
* Inflexible home screen layout compared to Android.
* No ability to replace the keyboard functionality
* Many of the apps I wanted were not available, and no corresponding work-alike available.
*** Stitcher for podcasts
*** Zinio for magazine reading
*** Pocket for offline web page reading
*** IMDB for movie lookup
*** App for renting the city bikes available in London aka "Boris bikes"
*** Weather Pro -- a weather app that breaks the next five days by 4 hour forecasts, very good for planning outdoor activities
*** App for accessing the detailed Ordnance Survey maps for planning UK hikes
*** Strava app for tracking bike rides
*** App like FB Reader for reading public domain (out of copyright) books in .mobi and .epub formats
* Commercial and market leading apps weren't as good as either the iOS or Android versions
*** Kindle page formatting options not as flexible
*** Google Photo style backup didn't seem to include a "photo album" feature up on the website viewer
*** Skype was just weak overall
*** Web browser lacked the "save image to file" function
*** Map tool lacked verbal directions, ability to plan trips via public transport or bike
As it's been a while since I used the Lumia, I might have forgotten a few things or the story might have improved. My feelings at the time were that anyone who was satisfied with the Lumia phones simply didn't know what was possible.
It's the biggest, and happily the last, of the atmospheric EMP tests.
Starfish Prime caused an electromagnetic pulse (EMP), which was far larger than expected, so much larger that it drove much of the instrumentation off scale, causing great difficulty in getting accurate measurements. The Starfish Prime electromagnetic pulse also made those effects known to the public by causing electrical damage in Hawaii, about 1,445 kilometres (898 mi) away from the detonation point, knocking out about 300 streetlights, setting off numerous burglar alarms and damaging a telephone company microwave link. The EMP damage to the microwave link shut down telephone calls from Kauai to the other Hawaiian islands.
I believe that you can use the SysInternals tools to find what's got the device locked. Better if it was surfaced for the less-skilled enduser...
The interesting limitation for me is that there is no USB on the tablet -- only on the keyboard. This makes simple storage expansion difficult, and limits your choice of audio devices you could use in an audio conference when you've only brought the tablet because it's lighter and easier to carry when biking somewhere.
> But then it doesn't do anything worth doing that a laptop a quarter of the price doesn't do.
There's no laptop with pen input the quality of the Surface at 1/4 of the price. If you value the ability to annotate on PDF images, sketch as you present on a webex, or do artwork while travelling then you need that ability.
As the Fire was originally sold with disk encryption, any removal of that ability would seem to render it "defective", and thus no longer meet the Product Quality portion of the Consumer Rights Act:
In the US, it's probably grounds for a class-action suit along the same lines.
Because the actor was less chauvinistic, less racist, and less divisive?
Thadani says that on CPU-bound applications, the overhead imposed by HVX can be as little as 5 per cent and as much as 30 per cent compared to native KVM or Xen hypervisors, and that on I/O-bound workloads, the overhead can be quite a bit higher. So this is no free lunch, at least until HVX features are added to x86 processors.
I am afraid I can't agree. Look at these projects:
2) James Webb Space Telescope
4) Worldwide climate modelling efforts
5) Serious discussions about moving towards a zero carbon world
All of the above are expensive, and the last will be expensive and painful.
Humans are tackling large scale problems, but not starships. Yet.
Or that 90% of the messages were work related, perhaps with copy-paste for bulk, and 10% were to the personal contacts.
BTW, I didn't see the volume figures in the Register article, or that the 45 pages over 8 days were entirely messages to the personal contacts. Where did you see this?

Thanks for the interesting reference. It's been decades since I read Atlas Shrugged, so I did a quick search to see what the story around Eddie was. The comments here are worth a read, as they refer both to the book and to what Ayn Rand said about the character (albeit without specific enough attribution to chase down the interview).
A UN Report has declared it *is* a right, as linked in a comment above:
Comparing parental oversight and guidance to this situation isn't particularly sensible.

Yes, and anyone can put on gloves before they enter the crime scene. Yet the police still find a lot of fingerprints.
Yes, you're right that people can use burner phones. But there will be mistakes where they don't get the burner phone bought, or run out of power an resort to the main phone, or when they accidentally leave the main phone turned on while the crime occurs.
