Hubble 'scope camera breaks down amid US govt shutdown, forcing boffins to fix it for free

Re: Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot

And during the last major election, the people who said we aren't building a monument to the Maginot Line got the most votes and said no wall. It is the will of the people who voted their representatives into office.

As far as this being Trump's shutdown, he went on national TV and made it a point to say he would be proud to wear the mantle and claim it as his. Are you trying to take away one of his few accomplishments?

Re: Optional reasoning

The space race in the 60's was a case of the project management triangle being skewed towards we will get to the moon first, damn the costs.

If you really think that NASA is being mismanaged, how much do you think it would have cost the US to have Haliburton or Boeing to put the rovers on Mars or send pictures back from the Kuiper Belt?

NASA's FY 2017 budget of $19.5 billion (in nominal dollars) represented 0.47% of the $3.98 trillion United States federal budget during that year.[2]

NASA was allocated $601.31 billion (in nominal dollars) overall from 1958 to 2018.

Re: Neutrality

Donald Trump is on record, due to the fact he said it on national TV before it happened, claiming that this is his shutdown.

Calling it that is not being biased.

HausWolf

As part of the system of checks and balances, one of the houses of a co equal branch of the government (in this case the one that controls the purse) is now controlled by people who said they were not willing to build a wall. So it should not be built, on the premise that the majority of people have spoken and said no.

Foxconn denies it will ship Chinese factory serf, er, workers into America for new plant

Re: Apple = Foxconn = Apple

You realize Foxconn manufactures for most of the large OEMs and that this has absolutely nothing to do with Apple.

Re: Slippery slope; And not the fun kind

US Declaration of Independence labeled hate speech by Facebook bots

HausWolf

That's ok, last year when the Declaration of Independence was read on public radio ( something they have done for almost 20 year) the trump voters swore up and down that it was a plot to overthrow trump.

Guess that goes to show the intelligence of the type of person who voted for him.

You can tell by all the domestic content his "premium" clothing lines use.

Trump’s new ZTE tweet trumps old ZTE tweets that trumped his first ZTE tweet

HausWolf

Actually the big problem with ZTE was them breaking laws dealing with sanctions on NK and Iran. Trump just gave them a pass, or took some chinese bribes and let them go on their business... depending on how you look at it.

Prez Donald Trump to save manufacturing jobs … in China, at ZTE

HausWolf

So you are saying that even though ZTE has been found to be violating the law regarding sanctions, trump decided to use his influence to try to help them out?

Google Pixel 2 XL: Like paying Apple-tier prices then saying, hey, please help yourself to my data

Re: ZTE and Huawei - the tip of an iceberg?

While it might take time and money to spin up new or find replacement facilities China is just as much at the mercy of their biggest consumer if they wish to keep their growing middle class happy. As far as closing any of the Foxconn facilities, they make stuff for all the major IT companies so that is a no go also.

This saber rattling between the two is amusing to watch if it wasn't so dangerous to the worlds stability.

Huawei CEO sings 'Bye, bye, mister American Pai', trims US C-suite

HausWolf

Re: "you chose to enter against German........"

Don't mind him, he's just another trump follower who thinks muh american exceptionalism is really a thing.

But he should be reminded the last time someone ran around yelling America First it was a bunch sympathizers to a certain austrian guy who thought he too was exceptional. To be fair though, according to trump there are many fine people in that group as well.

HausWolf

Re: Ban them!

Actually, I for one am all for dropping politicians from 5.5 meters but I also think we should try dropping them from increasing heights until we find out what height starts knocking some sense into them.

That way, anyone who files to run for office can immediately be taken outside and dropped from that height before their campaign starts.

HausWolf

You are assuming that lawmakers will take the time to actually read or have staff read these reports instead of taking what the lobbyist says as gospel.

That is one of the reasons I recently switched to an iPhone, Apple updates their products far longer than most android devices get updates. And that includes security updates, not just shiny features. Now if they would just put a damn micro SD hole in them.

You guys realize that while win10 slurps a lot of your data, that Google has been and probably will be far worse.

Yes, MS needs some stiff competition, but this might be a case of them finding out just how far they can go.

This is one of the huge problems with Global Warming. Since Florida is going to be one of the worst affected in the US, this means these people will most likely disperse to other corners of the country. It will be harder to keep an eye on them.

US Secretary of State: I will work with Russia on cyber security issues

HausWolf

Re: Enough.

He is doing his job, like many on the trump team he has been taking Russian money for years.

His job is to make life easier for trumps benefactors from the late 90s onward when all the western banks wouldn't loan trump money because he was such a credit risk.

And Clinton is not in office, you trumpers have to find someone else to blame, your guy is in charge.

IBM had a history of tracking people, I would remind people of this but that would invoke godwin's law.But also remember that HAL was in one instance supposed to be IBM ( just move one letter left across the name). Google are merely newbs at this. No less malevolent or determined, just amateurs though.

Re: cripple your own economy

Some think that if manufacturing comes back to the US, that there will be jobs with it. Actually we manufacture more than we ever did, but automation is driving that growth. Next the orange savior will declare robots to be bad dudes and try to deport them.
