Fuck you Amazon and fuck you Truedeau and the Liberal party! 1000 more jobs? 1000 more foreigners taking Canadian jobs more like.
Huh? Amazon is a US company and headquartered in Seattle. How can it be 1000 more foreigners taking Canadian jobs? They are not Canadian jobs to begin with.

That's actually sad to hear.

No it is not. It is at the base of mount Everest and all the communities around it and in the Himalayas. It is helping schools and the community. Read the article. Also, people have used satellite communication at the top of mount Everest for years.

Bing may be so horrible that Microsoft has been needing to pay people to use it for years, but I do miss the good old days of getting real prizes in exchange for inflating their traffic numbers. I was too late to get a free Xbox (or two, or three, as it was apparently not too difficult to do), but I did get several retail copies of Vista Ultimate, a couple of wireless 360 controllers, a pretty nice webcam, a few DVD versions of MS-published PC games of the era... Just for running macros on their stupid mini-games all day.

What is wrong with the 2-3, $5 Amazon gift cards a month?!

Simply put, If you want a decent photo your cell phone is not going to take it.
The internet and actual photographic evidence disagree with you.

And the cameras you linked to, their only benefit is optical zoom and large lenses. Which is great, not knocking it. But the actual sensor size and quality are in most cases inferior to good cellphone camera sensors now. You can now get for cheaper than those cameras you linked, mounts and and such you can hook your cellphones into, and have decent lenses and optical zoom as well; and make it far superior than those less than ~$250 cameras.

Nope. It was March 18, 2016.

Here's a story about the pilots getting their well-deserved medals.


Pilots get medals for cops making a slow driver get over? Man, medals are easy to come by these days!

Sorry Cutter, no I do not. Nope, sorry buddy, do not. Changed jobs and the new place no longer has 100's of unused copies sitting around. If I was smart I would have grabbed a handful from the old place, but alas, I am not. And mail reply says you have it disabled, so couldn't reply directly.

No one is forcing anyone to make those vanity purchases. I paid $150'ish bucks for a work phone - a tough phone thast's waterproof and shatterproof - 6'ish years ago and I still use it today as it works just fine for what it's supposed to do.

If you can not slice prosciutto with it, it is not a real phone!

No, it will have no impact on the space tourism thing. This, if works, is a low thrust device. It is only useful as propulsion for the long distances between planets. It will not help get up and away from earth, or down on other planets either once we get there.


Yeah but one of Musk's main goals is to establish a living colony on Mars by 2100. A drive that significantly decreases the travel time between planets, or that can cheaply move large ammounts of freight between worlds would go a long way in bringing him closer to that goal.

The cost is all in leaving the ground, getting into orbit and then out of orbit. And then on the destination entering orbit there, and getting down safely. The trip in-between is virtually insignificant from a cost standpoint, and this is all this technology is good for.

I feel like a simple solution to the losing your location in real space would be a simple cheap camera on the front of the device, and with the eye tracking use a pattern/gesture of blinking the eyes to turn on a ~65% opacity to see the real world from the camera for a little bit.

BobBob, to answer you question. In this reference the popular vote just means total number of votes per candidate across the entire voting nation. Ignoring the electoral college, approximately half a million more people voted for Hillary than Trump (only ~0.42% more for Hillary) This is not the first time it has worked out that way.

While it does suck. People should also stop being so stupid and letting their phones stream the 1080P version of stuff on a ~5" screen that is ~12 inches or so away while they are taking a poop on the toilet with their elbows on their knees. It is just a waste of bandwidth and battery. The screen size, distance and resolution is just a waste for human perception. So while it does suck and should be allowed to be opted out of, there is a good chance that in the vast majority of usage cases it will not even make a difference from a user standpoint, just save bandwidth. because, you know, stupidity!

Until the batteries need maintenance. Plenty of studies that say the hybrids are worse for the environment than gas guzzlers.

A) I never said a single thing about it being better for the environment. B) Yes, it is not as clean as people think. But it is not as bad as you think either. It is also not fair to compare it to cars like the tesla that have 4-5 times larger battery.C) Those negative effects will never go away, but do go down over time as technology is improved and more cars are sold and we get more efficient in all processes of the battery making. And the warranties on the battery now are great.

The new Prius Prime. Plugin hybrid. You get a short range electric car and a really efficient gas car when you need to go further. You then have her ask her work about charging while there, if they do not already have it. And don't pay for any travel except long trips. Businesses get tons of tax breaks for having electric car charging stations. She gets to use the HOV lane there by her self, lower tolls where they apply, and no longer has to do the yearly inspection. Plus lots of tax credits when buying it. Probably about $4K federal and you may even qualify for upto $5K from state. And it isn't really all that expensive.

No, it is - for certain ethnicities and depending on where you live. Vitamin D, casein and whey proteins, are majorly important for a great many body fuctions. That's well known and accepted everywhere, except for kooks on Youtube who tell you don't need dairy. Rolleyes

Yeah, who would take unsourced medical anecdotes from a non-doctor on an internet forum?

I'm not going to waste my time and energy providing links to something anyone can easily find within a minute or two of searching if they're so inclined. If you don't understand why we need dairy, grains, fats, etc. than that's your problem. This isn't rocket surgery. No, let's just listen to some random guy on Youtube spouting bullshit. Yeah, that's the smart thing to do, Stephen. Rolleyes


It is not just some random guy. Did you even watch the videos? With an open scientific mind? Look up his bio? Notice everything he said was backed up by rigorous scientific studies? You call him a kook and random guy; but point of fact, you are in this situation. It took all of 3 seconds to search and find a short bio of the "kook", which I will provide below. This is only about the milk/dairy part, the grain part is another aspect of the conversation I am not talking about nor said anything about. So again, why is your common misconceptions more correct then well performed research studies covering millions of people and performed by hundreds of researches at difference institutions and fields of science? You are being no different than the climate change deniers because 'some guy in their past' told them so and they believe it; because it is just what they know and believe/feel correct...

And cracked is wrong replacing dairy with water. Dairy is essential - at least for those of us of northern european descent who still live in northern climes. For people in the sun belt who get plenty of exposure to sun and fresh veg year round, not so much.

No diary is not essential for you.

1. iOS 10 is surfacing hardcore porn GIFs in iMessage. Sep 15, 2016, 21:42 Enahs
 
From the article:
" The GIF feature is powered by Bing; we've also reached out to Microsoft for comment."
And also;
" was presented with "a very explicit image" of "a woman giving oral sex to a well endowed male." Her daughter hadn't searched for anything explicit, just the word "huge."

That just tells you how silly Apple is. Go to Bing image search at search for "huge". If you have their "safe search" turned to moderate, you get mostly pictures of large breasts. But they are covered up, and not nude. There are a few other things, but the first 50 or so as no nudity at least. If you turn the safe search feature to strict, there are no breasts, or things age inappropriate. If you turn safe search all the way off, you get large breasts and also what sounds like the description of the oral sex to the well endowed man in the article in some of the first few results.

There seems to be no reason to reach out to Microsoft as the article said, they did there part and it seems to work rather well. You can easily find the things you want with the correct terminology if you set your safe search restrictions correct. Apple literally is just completely ignoring all of Microsoft's hard work on filtering out age inappropriate content, which seems to work pretty damn well. It also is a trivially easy fix, so why has Apple not fixed it already?

Glad this douchebag is being nailed, but he committed this crime back in the 70s. Isn't there a statute of limitations?

Which is probably why he is being charged with obstruction of justice charges when initially asked about it, and not actually the events themselves.
