You know, there is absolutely nothing wrong with finding attraction to anyone of any sex. Wanting to "do" them is a thought you can keep in your head or act upon. The less-savage of the human race know that no means no. We don't police thought crimes ... not yet anyway. (Did you see that recent article about being able to predict if someone is a Liberal or Conservative (by US standards?)) When humans are unable to keep their sexual lust in check, we call them various...
FYI, only American Debit cards, and some European Visa cards (V-Pay) work that way.And it's preferrable to have a debit card that functions like a credit card, as it tends to have the same protections as a credit card, as opposed to straight bank account direct debits which should only be done by FDIC covered banks. Everyone that can accept both credit, debit and direct debit(ACH) will always present the ACH method first because it costs them 3% less. And to companies that...
Copy+Paste tends to be the only reason to really want a mouse. Even a Stylus would suffice in that case.The problem I find with the copy and paste on iOS is that it tries to be too helpful, often the amount of time trying to select just the "part of a word" or "part of a sentence" could be better spent just typing it back out.
There's a good market for it:1) PoS (You want something large enough to make a product verification.)2) Education (I always thing it's odd when something is marketed as being "educational", for whom? For children it would have to be smaller and more durable. For College/University it would have to be no bigger than a textbook (which for 8x11 paper diagonal is about 13.9") with the same aspect ratio of paper. Not sure about Europe in that case)3) Elderly... just want larger...
My apartment has 3 LED bulbs that I bought myself on different days. The bathroom and kitchen have CFL's. The LED bulbs At 50$ each or so, I'm not going to be quick to replace them.The first bulb still works, and I bought that one when I moved in. But it's also the one that is the most dim as I think it was meant to replace a 40 watt. I have a feeling that I may end up replacing the bulbs before they burn out, if only to get more efficient models. I'm somewhat skeptical...
[/quote]The only innovation Samsung can be credited with is figuring out the sweet spot for smartphone size, thus driving down the prices for screens of those sizes, which in turn everyone took advantage of.Apple, for all the things it does, is most risk-adverse to product line dilution (eg making 300 varieties of the same thing with only trivial changes like Samsung does.) An iPhone made today works on all carriers worldwide. That owes a lot to having factory-unlocked...
Sounds like the kind of store I would go out of my way to shop at. I'd reasonably suspect the staff are paid more and are happier too.As far as NFC payments go, it's very likely that most Americans weren't even aware that the NFC card readers existed because most banks weren't issuing chip+pin+NFC cards, and every place that has rolled out NFC, only did so AFTER rolling out chip+pin.I had my BMO-Harris card replaced some time last year, and it still didn't have a Chip or...
Depending how you interpret it. Anyone supporting Apple Pay/Google Wallet, is merely supporting Mastercard's Paypass or Visa's Paywave. There's no reason to turn off the NFC as you're accepting credit cards.What this could be interpreted as however is other "apps" like dedicated bank apps, that require separate technology to support. The entire QR code thing is at least more than a decade old and gained no traction anywhere except in some advertising material (QR codes for...
The Garage Door is likely better to be triggered by WiFi, where the presence of both the car and the phone in the address table of the Apple Time Capsule/Airport would give it a "safe" reason to open the door. Most Garage Door's passive infrared sensors at the base of the door to prevent the door closing while something/someone is underneath it.Another use would be outside the car itself, and simply waving the iphone over a panel near the garage door to open it without the...
The stores around here have the 16GB models in stock, but all other models are wait-listed.I might have to wait for the next version if the banks out here don't support Apple Pay this year In all seriousness, Canada has a much established NFC payment system, but nothing but poor excuses for mobile device NFC. ( http://www.rogers.com/suretap/ , Android and Blackberry only, NFC SIM, guess who takes a cut? The mobile carrier.)
