Comment What crap. (Score 1) 289

These banks whine about this but yet they are taking so much time with Android Pay that there was an article about folks jumping ship on the banks owned by Westpac Banking Corp. Maybe they should get over it because 50 different payment systems on Android would suck .. and since they can't have access to the NFC antenna in the iPhone they have little choice. And consumers don't give a crap they just want to use contactless and be on with their day.

Comment Re:So a Mormon man gets to work 1/2 time (Score 1) 265

You must be the odd person out or you don't participate in the culture. I work with a lot of LDS in Lehi, UT. They get married and 9 months later comes the first one then they give their wives a few months to recoup and boom .. another kid on the way. Between PTO and maternity/paternity leave .. they are out for at least 7 to 9 weeks a year. It's not bigotry to bring up facts. I do know a few mormons that don't have huge families but it's in the 5% range. Sorry man .. it is what it is. But the non-mormons in my work circle end up with much more work with the same level of pay.

You ARE the problem. You've been conditioned to believe this since 9/11 and it's wrong. Us old folks remember when our lives were private unless WE divulged the information. They've trained millennials to SHARE everything and quite a few of us older folks think we have to change with the times. Well, no. Fuck that.

So ... other than the "cloud" falacy ... ever strike you that Microsoft sued a bunch of OEM's? And maybe it was due to their use of exFAT/Fat32 on the SDcard? Yeah. Well. Think about it.

If they don't format the /sdcard partition in a Microsoft FS but may you use Android Transfer or as an MTP device ...then OEM's and Google don't have to pay Microsoft a dime. heh.

" Liquid for producing vapor in electronic cigarettes, commonly known as e-juice or e-liquid, is a solution of propylene glycol(PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and/or polyethylene glycol 400 (PEG400) mixed with concentrated flavors; and optionally, a variable concentration of nicotine. "

You probably should do some actual research. And as others say ... don't eat much? Do ya?

No, you are missing the point. There busses, Caltrain and BART already ... instead of these corps. helping to make public transit even better they are opting out of paying their fair share and spending it on MORE busses that only their employees can ride ... which clog the streets even more. I pass a bunch of them each morning on my ride in. *shrug*
