No Firefox For iOS, Says Mozilla's Product Head

ricklow Re:Firefox - all negative (318 comments)

Counterexample:
My employer has deployed a heavy-handed security environment on all Windows workstations along with an antique version of IE. Chrome consistently crashes and hangs to the point that it's unusable. Firefox runs like a champ and has become my browser of choice at work.

Anyone can find a single sample to prove anything.

Remembering America's Fresh Water Submarines

ricklow Re:As we move into Memorial Day and Americans reme (225 comments)

Eisenhower said essentially the same thing in 1953:
"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.This world in arms in not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some 50 miles of concrete highway. We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people. This, I repeat, is the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking. This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."

What he was doing (rightly or wrongly) was paraphrasing the old saying "When you owe the bank a thousand dollars, you have a problem, but when you owe the bank a million dollars, the bank has a problem."
