Ok, ya got lucky with PayPal, you're even somewhat smart. But you're not the second coming of Jesus, and the world does not need to hear about every little thought you fart out.
(though I still like you better than the Orange Menace.)
It is certainly true that consumers, particularly low-income consumers, like getting free or subsidized data plans. There is no doubt about that. But when the subsidies are coming from the big tech companies, who can easily pay them, to buy competitive advantage over that nimble startup that is scaring them, well we know how that movie ends.
I really object to this person's writing style, which repeatedly seeks to put words in others' mouths rather than proposing facts and backing them up with cites as appropriate. "We all know" that that's the writing style of someone who may well be running a spin game rather than an information dissemination game. I want to be informed, not pushed into going along for the ride.
And they obviously won't improve their chances of survival with cannibalism.
It's tempting to accept this statement at face value, but an instance of cannibalism involves the death of an individual, not the death of a species. Cannibalism is just another variant of natural selection, and it's fairly easy to construct a scenario where it in fact leads to better overall survival rates (e.g. only the sick are eaten, or the challenge of evading being eaten leads to the accelerated development of intelligence/swiftness/whatever). Whether it turns out that way in this case remains to be seen.
The idea is to limit the processing power that background tabs get.
Got it. Simple, succinct, perfect.
(1) Each WebView has a budget (in seconds) for running timers in background. (2) A timer task is only allowed to run when the budget is non-negative. (3) After a timer has executed, its run time is subtracted from the budget. (4) The budget regenerates with time (at rate of 0.01 seconds per second).
Of what interest is it to anybody that the pseudo-code for this is the above, vs some other slightly different variant of how to restrict allocated processing time? Users aren't going to care. And if developers try to somehow design around this level of detail, they'll break if the algorithm ever changes.
When I tell a friend I'll show up for dinner, I don't then explain that I'm going to do so by walking one foot at a time until I get to the dinner place, at which point I'll commence chewing and swallowing.
If this bill's author has had the temerity to claim to be in favor of 'freedom' or 'free markets'; and then pushes this nonsense, somebody needs to feed him to a wood chipper.
Should that chipper be wind-powered or gas-powered? Wind would be good for the planet, but gas would have a sweet and irreplaceable irony to it...
Elkins-Tanton calculates that the iron in 16 Psyche would be worth $10,000 quadrillion ($10 quintillion).
Yes, the ten pounds of iron they'll be able to transport back will cost that because of the enormous cost of the space mission to retrieve it. But it will be worth it because of the awful iron shortage we're suffering through.
I don't understand the logic behind pardoning Manning but not Snowden.
Amen. Heck, I don't understand pardoning Nixon and not Manning, Snowden, and a whole bunch of other people.
Yes, I'll pay for a movie in one of the common streaming services for $10-$20 per movie.
Assuming you mean "purchase the ability to stream whenever I like on an ongoing basis". Whereas my willingness to pay for a rental (streamable for 48 hours) tops out at maybe $3.
This quote is a case of somebody writing something to just fit a grammatical template, rather than thinking about what they're writing. Substantiate that wild speculation, ZDNet, or turn in your beard-stroking license asap.
It's really a lot like having a low
Of course that's what someone in the 800k range would say. Down here in the 300k range, we're feeling no pain. Except for those stuck-up 100k range-ers, they really boil my potato.

Shatner? Is that you?
If they paid branding consultants millions to come up with "Altaba", somebody deserves to be beaten black and blue with a briefcase, including the consultants.
It's actually a remarkable word, in that it *feels* like it's a palindrome but isn't, and simultaneously is an anagram of "A tabla". Hats off to the marketing genii.
We all agree on the necessity of compromise. We just can't agree on when it's necessary to compromise. -- Larry Wall
