For better or for worse, burglary is typically done by (for want of a better term) “professional” criminals, who to some extent know what they’re doing. They’re going to assume that they’re being recorded somewhere, and take steps to limit the chance that they’ll be identified. That means masks (or at least…
What do you mean by necessary? Because depending on your definition, electricity isn’t necessary.
Many point out that preventing users from turning off the status light
just means that potential thieves and villains will be able to spot the
cameras more easily
This doesn’t strike me as a complaint that anyone would make sincerely without also being a creep.
Although I suppose the person could also be…
As people pointed out, Nintendo doesn’t want people listening to their music for free on youtube, but then don’t release their tracks outside of Japan. Anyone outside of Japan has to hope Nintendo releases one of those mini soundtracks that usually come bundled with games.
I feel like that whole “No depictions of him ever or woe unto you” thing probably hurts Muhammad in the fame department vs. Jesus who, say what you will, knew how to brand.
Yeah, you run the stats on it? The 200 was the Gold Standard-- it’s several orders of magnitude safer than the MAX; the MAX type only managed a few thousand flights with two hull losses and almost 350 fatalities.
Quite to the contrary - an older model plane that has been tried and tested, that mechanics are familiar with and pilots trust, is much safer than a plane that behaves unpredictably and is unfamiliar to those operating it.
I mean, it probably is. How many crashes are associated with the -200s that are caused by the plane itself in the past 20 years? Vs the MAX’s?
With a background in aeronautics, control systems, safety systems and embedded real-time control systems I assure you that pretty much everything about the MCAS implementation was fatally flawed. Hopelessly fatally flawed.
Here’s the thing, though: Being successful in China is probably enough to make it commercially successful. And if its successful in China, it might catch on in neighboring countries, and they might be able to muscle their way into a lot of African and South Asian markets, and then we’re talking about half the global…
That all depends. If Harmony gains any traction in China and Southeast Asia, then major developers would be foolish not to attempt to port an app. That’s far too large a potential audience to ignore.
“Why remove the actual weapons from sale (and therefore make it just a little bit harder to get them) when we can remove the in-store media that shows those weapons in action instead?”
I would be fine with most of the negative response if the show weren’t good - in fact, quite a lot better than the source material. I actually deeply cared about characters and plot lines (especially this bizarre bond that draws each member of the Boys together). On a number of occasions, I was also really pleasantly …
“It is, without a doubt, a good time to be in the superhero business.” This is a knowing line from early in season one of the new show The Boys; it could also open any number of state-of-the-industry thinkpieces explaining how both film and TV have been flooded with superhero content. The Boys is Amazon’s latest…
The fact the buzzing has been made audible means it was mixed that way in post-production, which means the fly is not accidental.
And Simon Pegg is wasted so far.
In fact, one of the main reasons I’m steering clear is that I refuse to support Bezos if I can help it
“I refuse to support Bezos.... Except for when they're showing something I'm interested in."
This was probably the best TV series I’ve watched in a while, hit all the right notes and was just the right balance of funny, shocking and clever. The ending was also incredibly satisfying while also leaving you ready to watch another 8 episodes.
But I think in the “alleged” has to do with if there is a pending legal case which if the person has been formally charge but not yet tried or convicted.
