So $40 for some dance moves and a new gun doesn't seem fair, but it's not worth burning your profile over.
I think it's $20, which is still a ridiculous price, but I agree. I don't mind what they charge, I just won't buy it. It's just rude to offer it they way they did originally: give us 80 bucks for all this stuff you already have if you want the new content. That's basically taking a crap on your loyal fans (which is not the first time they've done that). Offering them as a standalone purchase is better - rolling it in for free with the DLC would be even better than that. If it were $5 I might even consider it.
I should add, my computer science class had us make a game for the 2nd semester and my 5 ppl team did manage to create a game similar to Destiny in Unreal Engine. Less levels and artwork ofc but just to put it in proportians
Are you suggesting that because you could make something similar* but a tiny fraction of the size and that didn't have to stand up to millions of worldwide users, that Bungie should have been able to make Destiny for cheap?
* I'm just guessing your game mechanics were simpler
If it was his personal phone then what right does anyone have to FOI messages from it? These would be personal communications and of no interest to anyone, right?.
If he was using his personal phone to conduct official business, then I think those messages would be subject to FOI requests and generally treated the same as any other official message. You can't escape the FOIA just by using private equipment (though Clinton sure tried).
I suspect you may be underestimating just how bad the previous (or current) system may be, and how long it would take to even get signoff to get access to the old servers, or to find out who actually knows which box the tape backups containing the pre-2014 emails might be sitting in.
It's hard to imagine how it could take 2200 hours even if someone did it manually, let alone writing a program to do it. It's just a relatively small police department, not the IRS or something.
If you are bothered about electromagnetic emissions in a "modern life", the most effective way to reduce them is likely to install any old Wifi router and tell your cell phone to use it whenever it can find it.
I could be wrong, but I don't think those people use cell phones.
Java's interfaces and calls being cribbed and called something different...
Why did you choose the word "cribbed"? They didn't copy anything from Java. They wrote their own virtual machine that implements the Java API.
Subverting control of future forks of a copied interface and behavior causes real problems: Java and Android will surely diverge and that will cause problems.
Depends what you mean by diverge - Android already adds lots of stuff that isn't in the Java SDK, and that's no problem. If you mean the Android SDK will start changing the semantics of things that are already defined in the Java API, I'm not at all certain they're going to do that.
The taxi drivers are all upset at Uber and not upset at the local government charging outrageous costs for taxi licenses.
I assume they don't want the government to lower the barriers to entry and thus increase competition. They want the government to keep the barriers in place because they've already gotten past them. The problem (to them) is not that the cost of entry is high, since they've already paid that cost, but that other people aren't being forced to pay the same cost of entry that they did.
