Comment Re:Be careful what you ask for.... (Score 1) 505

As democracy is perfected, the office of the president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people.
On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House
will be occupied by a downright fool and a complete narcissistic moron.

And now that he's had his 8 year term, people elected Trump.

Living up to your nickname, eh?

Not good for everyone's economy in the US by the way. Craftsmanship used to be a sought after trait and those people are out of work.

Short term. What they don't see is those out of work workers are no longer buying cars, or appliances, or most of the consumer products that keeps the economy humming.

China has a long history of selling dangerous products. From poisonous pet food to exploding electronics. When confronted, the Chinese government's response is "what a shame, we'll do something". The "something" is to rename the company and do it all over again.

Why the fuck does China have most favored nation trade status?

Because they've bought off a whole hell of a lot of people, but using cheap Chinese shit is good for the US company's short-term bottom line...which is all today's executives look at because that's what their bonuses and stock options are tied to.

Why restrict the tests to 3G when this is a 4G world (at least in the US) now?

So you have full 4G coverage all over the US?

No, you spend most of your time with 3G connections?.. Maybe that is more relevant then.

Not to me. I probably have a 3:1 LTE/3G ratio, and I live in a rural area and work in a small city.

I enjoy it. It's actually a nice feeling to see real commands (and parameters!) used and even one or two scenarios that don't have barf factors. It's more psychological than computer though. I'd give it 75%/25% psych/comp.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's hit pause to check out the commands and syntax for realism....
