I'm just wondering what the concern is.  It sounded like you were worried about the Chinese government getting their hands on your data, but I don't see how that's at all likely unless you're storing your data on Chinese services. The point I was alluding to was that I don't think there's any foreseeable threat of the Chinese government being able to demand that an American company give up data on American citizens.  Or maybe they'll demand it, but there's no legal...
 I never claimed you did.  I challenged you because you said this:  Which presumes that they will win.  My point is that the person in the right does not always win, for many reasons, which makes the loser pays costs model a horrible idea.    Sure.  If you'd been paying attention you might have noticed what I said when you originally replied to me:  But the solution to something being unbalanced isn't to make it more unbalanced.   What are you jabbering about here?  You...
Justice is the poor person suing being saddled with a mountain of debt because Tex Richman's army of lawyers were able to overwhelm the case that the legal aid lawyer could bring?   No.   Just read the paper in the morning; if there isn't a miscarriage of justice somewhere in there it'll be an unusual day.   A requirement for the loser to pays cost would be an abomination.  If the judge has discretion on ordering the loser to pay or contribute to costs, that might be...
A justifiable lawsuit always wins?  You think that?  You think you can totally 100% rely upon that? If filing a lawsuit carries a huge financial risk (especially if a poor person is suing a rich person, who will employ expensive lawyers thereby making their costs immense, and increasing the likelihood of the poor person losing), then you have a massive disincentive to sue.  If only rich people can afford to take the risk of suing then you have an unbalanced legal...
No, the executives.
Great, make the legal system only accessible to the wealthy; as if it wasn't enough already. That'll solve the world's problems.
 Not really.  You also have gender diversity; and equal rights across age, sexuality and disability barriers are often grouped under diversity.
Nice picture, but it's not a complete story.  Can non-airborne diseases be transferred from respiratory droplets exposed from the mouth?  Maybe they can if the transference is direct and quick, and therefore, maybe that's what ebola is?   The question is: what does it take for a disease to be classified as airborne?  I'm sure there's going to be a precise medical definition, so does ebola fit that?   I don't know exactly what that definition is, but the consensus seems...
I've got a number of American friends living in London and we love celebrating Independence Day.  I don't think anyone here is particularly scarred by that memory, though generally we tend to celebrate victories rather than defeats.  It's 200 years since Waterloo next Summer!
Are they? Widgets as in apps that run on the home screen giving live feedback without needing to open the app?  I don't think that's part of iOS8 unless I missed a sizeable part of the announcement. In-app and cross-app extensions aren't really widgets as most people understand them in the context of smartphones.
