The http/https is also gone from the bar. Now you just get a padlock icon
if no phone is to be announced, what's it for?
If a black hole is too small, its gravitational effects are minimal.
"A language is a dialect with an army and navy"
The experiment was done with alcohol and taurine. Not sure where the whole caffeine part comes from
An application which has nothing to do with disk management or similar functionality and which depends on a specific type of filesystem to work is doing it wrong.
" Frequencies may reduce over time as processor temperature increases."
Sustained performance seems to be "possible"...if you manage to keep the temperature below 50 degrees
If your only options for a life-critical application are windows and a generic *nix one, someone had no idea what they were doing
The Tesla saw the barrier, realised it had no time to stop or evade, and tried to accelerate to 88mph...
Nokia 8 64GB costs about 100€ less from a popular online retailer...
I agree that the snow is meant to be reddish. But not about "far from ideal lighting" - That's golden hour lighting, it can hardly get any better.
I was going to write a rant about the obnoxious terminology, but see icon
"Thankfully the Norman French influence on English didn't land us with "quatre-vingt" and "quatre-vingt-dix" - respectively "four-twenty" = 80 and "four-twenty-ten" = 90."
"4 score and 7 years ago..."
I doubt self-printed bricks would be cheaper than the mass produced injection-moulded ones. Not to mention looks (polishing) and strength
I'm surprised no one has yet commented about the 20K in legal costs. How is this calculated? Is it actual costs for Intel's lawyet? In that case it's incredibly unfair - get a team of top notch lawyers and the prospect of having to pay legal costs is enough intimidation for the other party to drop the case?
Very much, given you can download a csv data dump and import that into your spreadsheet.
The ones who assaulted the farting man and their companions(?) were escorted off the plane. Not the farter himself
You were deputising for a day and fired someone?
Couldn't make it up indeed.
Borland vs Lotus is not a binding precedent since it was in another circuit, and at the supreme court it was an even split so it doesn't set precedent
Like a Galaxy A9? Just like the A8 is to the S8?
International flights require "international" airports due to customs and immigration facilities and personnel
This doesn't upset the 5000-year-old-earth believers since they think it's all fake
If you have a GUI that has 2 options: "test warning" and "real warning", and you always test the "test warning", how can you be sure that the "real warning" actually works?
It was a 2-year mission that lasted 5 years before it went silent
Definitely - because as a hiring manager I'd be convinced that my company is so good that no one could possibly think that way about us!
@The Nazz "I'm mystified why the car didn't just floor it and steer away from the Firetruck?"
Because Tesla doesn't have an autopilot, it has driver assistance - the driver is supposed to see the stationary fire truck on the highway and make the necessary adjustments themselves
I'd say make it publicly accessible. There's no need to restrict this to news organisations - legitimate or otherwise
You don't have to give any of the information to Samsung. Even better: install lineage and get rid of the Samsung stuff (and get Android 7)
14cm per year only makes 70cm over the course of 5 years. Probes need plenty of adjustments on the way. For instance, for the 2nd Venus flyby, cassini fired its rockets for 90 whole minutes. Rosetta's initial trajectory was only accurate to about 100km at launch and needed adjustments as it got closer...
"Insects like the locust are just land bound arthropods similar to prawns etc., so why not eat them here in the affluent west? ...."
I look at that from another angle:
Prawns etc are just sea bound arthropods similar to locusts, so why on earth eat them here in the affluent west?...
One can make any food palatable by making it spicy enough, assuming one can handle the heat
@John Smith: The plural of thesis is theses, whether you're writing in english or trying to use the latin plural
Is there a state-level plan which all hawaiians know about and regularly practice as to WHERE one can seek shelter from a ballistic missile attack?
Unless the only thing produced in the Netherlands is electricity, the GDP is not based on the amount of electricity. The 140 Terawatthours mentioned in the article would cost a few hundred million euros.
Why is it such a big leap to imagine that these Birds are intelligent enough?
Known Fact: we can carry sticks (we do build nests that way)
Observation 1: The bright thing that we don't get too close to (hot) drives all our food crazy and makes for easy catches
Observation 2: The bright hot thing also tends to get bigger
Observation 3 : We can get close to the edge (especially a receding edge) of the bright hot thing without much issue
Conclusion: If we carry a stick that has the bright hot stuff to another place it will also get bigger and provide more food
"Certainly you understand the risk to facebook.com in there being a faecbook.com"
...or facetime ?
The only official IAAF run which is measured in miles is the 1 mile race - that's the aberration. A marathon is 42.195km - metric! Or White City Stadium to Windsor if you prefer.
"join the queue for Eu and jump the queue for joining the Eu"...Spain would have Veto rights, so if Catalonia were to Exit the EU there would be no realistic way for them to get back in
Don't all GPS units and phone software already have lane assistance? It doesn't need to know which lane you're on to tell you which lane you're supposed to be on
He felt poorly and coughed up nasty stuff for a whole year before visiting a clinic?
"You agree to the terms and conditions of this contract by flushing this paper down a drain"
Being locked with a bunch of people for a long time, knowing that, push comes to shove, you can get out of it any time, is not the same as being locked with a bunch of people for a long time, knowing that whatever happens, you have no way out until the mission is over
Earth is in the centre of the "observable" universe. Beyond that we cannot see...we might be in the centre or in the edge of the actual universe which might be bigger or even smaller than the region which we can see...From a scientific point of view, there's not much point in even discussing this, since it cannot be tested
In the normalised scores the median is 100, but the raw scores have actually been increasing...
the F-35 has a cannon as well...
He retired because he was sick (and possibly coerced), and after he retired his system collapsed...hardly a great example
Glue instead of screws, soldered components instead of connectors etc can be acceptable if they provide a better/cheaper design and if that is what the customers want.
Using some funky screw (pentalobe), fusing the digitizer to the actual LCD so that breaking the cheap digitizer means you also have to replace the LCD, and similar shenanigans should not be acceptable.
The guarantee extension while in repair part, or the right to choose a third party repair shop, as well as the general availability of spare parts, I'm all in for.
momentum relative to the speed ?
They are travelling at some speed greater than the escape velocity of the Milky Way at their location, relative to the milky way rest frame. The speed relative to the Sun (or earth) can be greater or lesser than this speed, depending on their location and direction. So you can say they are traveling very fast. You can also say they are slow (compared to, say, the speed of light)
