This is pretty common in the world of Software Development. There is a lot of pressure to keep up with the latest technology and buzzwords.
In interviews its also pretty common to be quizzed on the most obscure programming topics or asked to write out code on a white board. I've even had to take...

I don't see it as that crazy. We already have drones that are flown by humans, but its not crazy to think someone is working on an algorithm that could fly better than a human and scan for targets just as accurately. Military already uses robotic mules to carry supplies. I could see a robot being ma...

The nuclear option just changed the senate rule stating that you need 60 votes to end debate or filibuster. It didn't change how many votes you actually need to pass any legislation or appointments. ...

They get charged a couple of different ways.
There is a flat fee per swipe so something in the $.12-$.25 range. Then they also have to pay a percentage of the transaction. Depending on the risk and (debit/credit) this is in t...

Executive Branch enforces the law. He is choosing not to enforce it through executive order. The next president can create a new executive order overriding that. It has no permanent status.

This doesn't seem much different than what most smart phones can already do. I guess being always on and shared by a household makes it different. They should have integrated Fire TV with it.
