It shows that a person will pander to anything to try to squeeze another vote out.

I mean all Trump can do is pander and posture because nobody can legitimately vote for him based on policy: HAS HAS NONE.

And 99% of politicians pander or posture to one degree or another. It's infuriating and depressing to see an otherwise honorable candidate do it, but in a system where money is the defining resource to launching a political campaign, such practice is all but a requirement to getting elected.

Crucial M500 is my game drive, Samsung Evo is system drive. No complaints here, but then again I waited so long to switch to SSD that virtually anything seems like worlds of improvement.

Oh wow he signed "a pledge"?

Yeah if he somehow gets elected and somehow somebody brings this up the immediate response will doubtless be "it's not in the budget."

He's just posturing.

Guess what? In almost every case, state law can trump federal law.

Yeah no, marijuana is still very much illegal IN THE UNITED STATES and classified as a Schedule 1 drug, same as any other. There have been cases of The Feds coming into places like California and prosecuting medical marijuana organizations.

While in that particular case the DISTRICT COURT basically sided with the marijuana businesses, it's still open season nation wide. There is more or less a standing order for federal enforcement under the Obama administration to honor state laws where marijuana is concerned, but that changes with the president and obviously isn't a solution. Either the law needs to change for marijuana (and there have been small efforts on a national level here, the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment specifically from a couple years ago which is what saved those businesses in CA, and the CARERS Act which was introduced in 2015-2016 aims to move weed to Schedule II drug among other things) or the Supreme Court needs to rule definitively one way or the other (which doesn't seem likely).

Terraria Otherworld (more Terraria 1.5 than a sequel) was originally supposed to be out for Christmas 2015, but they missed that and have been completely silent through 2016. And Otherworld will be wrapped I think before we have any concrete progress shown on Terraria 2.

How can a company not patent a mathematical formula but they can patent the application of a mathematical formula? That doesn't make sense. Either a math formula is completely patent free or the Supreme Court ruling is meaningless.

Because patents are ALL ABOUT APPLICATION of an idea, not the idea itself.

You can SAY you're going to invent or create X to accomplish Y, but until you have the specific action or means by which to do it you aren't getting a patent for it.

The problem with patents concerning software is software is so fucking complex and patent offices so not brimming with elite coders that the scope of what is patentable and what isn't is now nebulous at best.

Supreme court already stated that you cannot patent mathematical equations. Hence they have nothing to worry about!

Good thing they didn't patent an equation, they patented the application of an equation in rendering 2D/3D images and animations.

Only thing I don't like about G502 is the scroll wheel, which has a mechanical toggle between "infinity scroll" mode (which I haven't the slightest idea of a use for) and a rather junky-feeling traditional scroll.

None of the new gaming mice have the 3 buttons on top, and I use those A LOT in games.

The 502 has two buttons just off the LMB and a button behind the scroll...

I just love the fucking smell of coal grills. Reminds me of summertime as a kid.

And my meats' flavors come from my marinades.

citizen eco-drive watches for almost half off. virtually all watches 30% off. i scrolled through i think 75 pages worth

Friend wanted a Skagen watch, but even at 30% extra off they were significantly more expensive on Amazon than Jomashop, a random webpage I've never heard of that pops up after googling "Skagen watches". Ordered a watch from there, instead.

Seeing as how the "lightning jack" qualifies as a "jack", there are no indications of any "jackless" iphone.
