    If amazon keeps allowing counterfeits onto their store, this will affect their brand integrity and consequentially, it will mean less official sellers wanting to deal with amazon. A lot of startups have problems with how amazon endorses counterfeits of the startup's product that they sell...

    Boeing 787-9 Twin Jet Dreamliner Hits Top Speed of 801 MPH

    AFIAK, It's not Mach-1, because it is a function of local flow velocity and local speed of sound. AFAIK, If it's a 230mph tailwind, that causes sound to travel faster in one direction than the other. Were a commercial jetliner actually to hit Mach-1, it would rip itself apart due to pressure...

    I don't think it was stream It's Uplay that ubisoft ties into steam, for a double login app service, that was frustrating and annoying. And it wasn't even steam that was annoying, it's about 99% Uplay's fault for being a trash app.

    Automation Will Change Every Job, but Only 25% Are on the Chopping Block

    I think it might be time to rethink why we work. Societies fall when they become unable to fix the problems they created by solving other problems that they created.

    In fact, it's not just Samsung. Even Apple wasn't selling a lot of iPhones in 2018. 2018 was an incremental improvement over 2017 in terms of smartphone technology. Slighter more pixels, slightly better image quality, slightly better camera(s), removal of headphone jack, higher price, but...
