Whoa, slow down.

So the solution to the syncing problem is to put your phone down five inches from your laptop, upload to your Cloud account (on a capped internet connection), then download it on the other device (on the same capped internet device) instead of creating a physical connection between the two? Or hell, just a local wireless connection if we're only talking about syncing and not even getting into questions about charging?
This. THIS is what causes all that bandwidth saturation the ISPs are so afraid of!
Sad but true.
Having all information lately pushed in the form of images and videos doesn't help - I still haven't found a reliable means of searching for that one video where someone said
I remember the internet back in the late 90s, when everyone had their own little corner of the net to publish the things they wanted to share with the world, and it was all in text. There was a lot of crap, sure, but you could find the stuff you wanted to. Now I get the feeling that looking up news from just last month is an exercise in futility as it gets buried in pointless results; that is, if there even is something to search for and it wasn't just a picture meme that will be forever lost.
Actually it was coming back to the stark white background of Slashdot that hurt my eyes the most.
I wanted to see it over there for the flame war certain to follow. Thank you for providing.
Or the company gets hacked and a malicious update gets pushed out to turn all the connected devices into a botnet. And those that don't get updated? They're kill-switched to force people to update at their earliest convenience.
I just really want to see this comment over in the thread about smart guns.
Why not both?
Why is it so hard to grasp the concept that both a problem and a solution can be more than ONE THING?
I really hope flying cars come with telemetry but maybe that's just me.
But if they manage to tweak the model so it fits the data set of 1980, 1981, 1982 etc. all the way up to now, isn't that essentially the same as starting today and predicting 2017, then tweaking the model a bit and using that to predict 2018, then tweaking it a bit because you missed something and so on?
No, what they mean is they test it by feeding it the data from 1995, then comparing its predictions to what the weather was actually like in 1996. They are doing exactly what you say is the only way to test the validity of the data - they just started collecting data long ago.
THAT SAID, 62% correct doesn't seem all that awesome unless they use very tight margins. Does the computer say it'll be -10C and then count it as a fail if it's actually -11C? -15C? Does it say 'Good enough' if it says "Rain and 5C" and instead we get "Snow and -2C"?
I'm a little curious, how does the fourth amendment work together with Stop And Frisk practices?
Is it feasible that the police could get a warrant to search a building, and then claim that anyone found in the building is 'suspicious' and they checked them out 'just in case'?
If your gun isn't loaded, that's a long time you're defenseless as well. Just get used to charging the gun every now and then, same way we've gotten used to charging cell phones every day? Maybe it could come with a charger that fits in the night stand drawer.
That's legalese for taking a bribe to go away, right?
But was your time anywhere close to this, or was it like high school kids doing the hundred meter dash in about 20 seconds?
