Hmmm, soon you'll have to take out a mortgage just for a phone...or a 52-month loan like on a car! Fucking ridiculous!

=-Rigs-=

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.

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.

If you do not care about having all the new fancy apps, get a Windows Phone. Yes, the platform is currently failing. But Microsoft is supporting Windows 10 Mobile greatly because it is Windows 10 at the core, constant updated and improvements. It is quite nice now. My Lumia 950 from last year still completely destroys my GF's brand new S7 camera. And the Continuum stuff is awesome.
If you want a really fancy phone HP released a new enterprise Windows Phone (you can read about using just the phone as your PC for a week here)
But it is expensive. But awesome as hell.

But you will not get many of the new apps. Though with Windows 10 that has been changing quite a bit, actually. But Microsoft is not pushing for Windows Phone at consumers really right now; they are focusing on enterprise. But it really does rock! They are also going to stop selling their Lumia line of phones this year...Maybe they will have something awesome lined up for next year, who knows.
You can also own the entry level Lumia 650 for $200 up front, save a lot of money since you probably do not use your phone that much anyway.

Just saying, don't stone me guys. I just really love my Lumia 950! It does my emails, messaging, web surfing, music, and phoning really well, which is all I use my phone for!
Especially with my custom leather back.

This and the increased speed is more about making the GPUs better for general purpose calculations and servers, not gaming. Gaming will get the benefits from it in several years, yes. But this is about making small scale to crazy large scale GPu accelerated clusters easier to maintain and upgrade, as well as perform better.

You are complaining about 32C? Man up, man. That is not really all that hot. When it gets over 37C and your body is actually cooling down the environment, only then are you allowed to complain.

The video is right in one aspect, that charcoal can burn hotter. But the difference in taste from charcoal to gas is more generally affected by two other things. One, charcoal grills when done right will put off more direct infrared radiation, changing the cooking profile. But most importantly, combustion of charcoal does not produce water vapor, where as combustion of gas does. Water vapor impedes the infusion of smoke into the meat. So those delicious smoke flavors from small flareups they are referring to, less of that goes into the meat (for gas). Slow long smoking (aka BBQ) overcomes this limitation with time, fyi.

jimnms, then you might check out Ikea.

I saw this one at Ikea while browsing the other day. That's about the size of the longer end of my current L desk and looks simple enough for me. I wish there was an Ikea close to me so I could check one out and see how sturdy it is.

If you go making your own L, I would go with something more like these designs:
http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/categories/departments/workspaces/11844/
Which for those you then get separately the legs, and put one on all 4 corners. If you go with the design you linked, where the two desks join you will have the leg support in the way of your knees and easy transitioning from one side to the other. Where as if you went with the 4 corner legs, and left the one off after joining he two tables, it would not be a problem and plenty of knee/leg space.

jimnms, then you might check out Ikea. You can get simple clean table tops and legs fairly cheap. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/categories/departments/workspaces/10712/
Of different designs and such. You would just not put a leg at the corner of the inside L table. And attach them together from underneath so the table with the missing leg is supported by the other table. They also have fairly cheap and decent under the table cable organizer attachments and such. So you could easily build a large L shaped table, with basic cable management for much less than $100. Or you can go with some of the more cooler and fancier table tops, but those start getting a little more expensive.
