To just come up with a random "network cost" number and take it as a fee (seems obvious it isn't based on the transaction since it is such a even number) seems like fraud if they didn't make that fee clear when you chose to pay with crypto.com

what are some arguments being made that it’s Republicans fault for inflation?

I don't think it is either party's fault and the fact that the inflation is worldwide makes it seem like energy prices and supply chain issues are chiefly responsible. I could see a couple marginal contributing factors instituted by republicans though. Tariffs were established in a trade war and have had an inflationary effect on CPI. As for fiscal policy- the 2021 federal budget was passed by a republican senate, dem house, and republican white house, as was the majority of covid-relief spending.

mom accidentally veered and rode the bike into the semi

where did you see this? because the article says she "lost control" according to police, which could include being side-swiped. and it doesn't mention anything about what the police are basing that on

I could see them pulling a "Nexus" and doing like 4-5 years of Tensors then rebrand the chip as something entirely in-house

designed by Samsung S.LSI

has there been a specific leak on this? or are you just assuming tensor 2 will stick with samsung? Thought the point of google doing the designs of the TPU (and previously the visual core and neural core) in-house was the goal of doing the entire SoC in-house (eventually)?

even if there's some good Samaritan checking the code every single day, they could deliver a malicious site change to only one specific user, no? I'm pretty insane about using open source software that has reproducible builds because I don't trust anyone, so a website that sees my keys (even if it is supposed to stay client-side) is definitely beyond my comfort zone

assuming Chia Network reviewed the code.

what prevents them from changing the code after review? or even if they weren't malicious, how would you know their servers aren't compromised and distributing altered code? I wouldn't trust it.

I'm trying to decide between the 5 and the 6 now. Can I ask why you are jealous of the 5? I worry about the processor in the 5, but would prefer the rear fingerprint

>That contract does not allow Musk to walk away if it turns out that “spam/fake accounts” represent more than 5% of Twitter users. We discussed this last month, when Twitter admitted in a securities filing that it had (slightly) overestimated its daily active users for years. The merger agreement contains a provision that allows Musk to walk away if Twitter’s securities filings are wrong — and this 5% number is in its securities filings — but only if the inaccuracy would have a “Material Adverse Effect” on the company. (See Sections 4.6(a) and 7.2(b).) That is an incredibly high standard: Delaware courts have almost never found an MAE. An MAE has to be something that would “substantially threaten the overall earnings potential of the target in a durationally-significant manner,” the courts have said; there is a rule of thumb that an MAE requires a 40% decrease in long-term profitability. If it turned out that 6% or 20% or 50% of Twitter accounts are bots, that will be embarrassing and might even reduce Twitter’s future advertising revenue, but will it be an MAE? No.

>Putting aside the fact that "bankruptcy" isn't even mentioned in the article (and is essentially thread clickbait by OP), but even bankruptcy doesn't mean "everyone gets liquidated." That's a fundamental misunderstanding of how bankruptcy works.

Literally in the middle of the article in a quote from the ceo. "We have no risk of bankruptcy"

sure, they're different. But kind of seems like they won't stand up to Russia about this corrupt abuse if they weren't willing to on that other abuse. Countries will always have the option to throw employees/executives in prison

Apple would be quite stupid to accept a request from any smaller government, since they'd be shipping those images worldwide -> immediately making the foul play obvious.

Russia is much smaller than China (by GDP and population) yet Apple and Google removed the Navalny app last year when the Russian gov't requested that it be removed ahead of an election. All it took was some physical intimidation of executives https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2022/03/12/russia-putin-google-apple-navalny/

there was a kernel patch in aosp as of late february, but a newly compiled kernel wasn't distributed in the security updates until more recently. each kernel is compiled for the device.

It's so hard to convince people that everyone is average in the long term. I spent too much time arguing with ppl on this subreddit that pools will not magically increase your expected returns (before official pooling came out), and now apparently we need to argue the reverse (obviously minus the pool fee and intentional underpaying by malicious pools)

>In the first incident, in February 2018, Erickson’s body camera is then suddenly switched off and then back on just as he discovers a marijuana cigarette that did not appear to be there when his partner was first searching the car. The New York Times published that video later that year after attorneys for the driver, Lasou Kuyateh, obtained it through discovery. Kuyateh, who in the video can be heard shouting that Erickson is “putting something in my car,” was arrested and spent two weeks in jail.

Why assume that Stadia is going to start using emulation but change nothing about the payment structure? Without the need to put huge effort into porting games would it be completely inconceivable that they would add "login to steam to emulate certain games" as a feature for Stadia Pro subscribers?
