It would harm my psyche if I thought everyone on the road has been drinking. I actively avoid it during times when it is in fact more likely (New Years eve etc). People who think they know their limits kill people all the time.
> People who think they know their limits kill people all the time.
So do people who are tired, or old, or stressed, or any other number of reasons. People kill people all the time, singling out one group and basically charging them with pre-crimes is not just. The world is a dangerous place, jailing people so your "psyche" feels good is not just. The world is dangerous, how about you accept that and act accordingly rather than supporting jailing those who haven't hurt anyone.
Perhaps, but drinking and driving is quite a bit more preventable than being stressed. Certainly people get distracted and accidents happen, but purposely driving impaired is in fact something different.
That being said, generally speaking, a drunk driver who happens to not do anything wrong on the road is extremely unlikely to have any legal issues. Mostly they are going to have problems when they start swerving or exhibiting signs of being impaired. A tired driver who is swerving wildly is also likely to get pulled over.

That might be true if it weren't for things like DUI checkpoints, which make it untrue. You can be perfectly fine to drive and still get caught and punished because of what are essentially baseless mass searches.
As someone who has never done a paid upgrade because I started my life as an indie on iOS, could someone explain to me why it's better than a subscription? Are users just significantly more likely to buy an upgrade than to just subscribe?
I'm currently experimenting with subscriptions on iPhone and I think it at least has potential. To be fair, my conversions aren't where I'd like them to be yet, but I do think there is potential. Many of my competitors are also using subscriptions, and they seem to be doing pretty well.
EDIT: It also allows you to do trials, as long the free version is useful enough on it's own you can happily give out trials of all the premium features.
I've had the understanding that subscription isn't an option for most types of apps. Auto-renewing subscriptions are only allowed for content or services. And non-renewing subscriptions are pretty narrow in scope as well. What type of subscriptions are you selling and for what type of features?
I'm using the non-renewing subscription, which I don't think is really as narrow as some of that guidance seems to suggest. I've seen them used in lots of different apps, in addition to the auto-renewing subscriptions I mention above.
Perhaps if Apple just actually changed those guidelines and made it explicit that this is ok more it would be a path to sustainability for more apps.
I feel like if more apps adopted this users might also become more comfortable with it.
I think they are quietly loosening 11.15. It started as just magazines, now it has:
Apps may only use auto-renewing subscriptions for periodicals (newspapers, magazines), business Apps (enterprise, productivity, professional creative, cloud storage), and media Apps (video, audio, voice), or the App will be rejected
On top of that, I know of at least 2 very high profile sports and health and fitness apps that are currently using auto-renewing subscriptions. Now, it's possible they get to do it BECAUSE they are high profile, but the precedent exists. They don't fit in any of the above categories.
I never used an ad blocker until the last month or so. Ive made money with content and ads before and I know it's hard to do. Sadly, things have gotten absurd lately. Chrome basically slowed my computer to a halt on an almost daily basis. The performance improvement from using an ad blocker has been tremendous. So much difference I have a hard time believing it.
As a side bonus I also don't have to deal with auto playing video ads and popover boxes asking me to subscribe to content I haven't yet had a chance to see if I like.
I just installed windows 10, and obviously had to quickly fire up "Edge" to get chrome/firefox etc.
My mind was blown when I googled a "how to" and went to a PC help page that started auto playing a video in the sidebar completely unrelated to the topic I was interested in - simultaneously kind of clashing with the music I was already listening to.
Seriously? People have been putting up with this? Some 10 minutes later I was all adblock'd/noscript'd and my internet experience had returned to normal. I literally haven't experienced that since the days of sodding myspace.
To be fair, while we only have 2 parties (with any chance at all) those parties are spectrums. Not everyone within the parties agree with each other. There are wings to each party, and the candidates selected in primaries reflect that.
For example, whether you love or hate them, the tea party has almost been a third party in America. Yes they ran as republicans so they'd have a chance, and do agree on a lot of things, there is no question that there are also lots of things mainstream republicans and tea party candidates disagree on.
While we stick to the 2 parties, there is a wide spectrum of viewpoints still available within those parties. The republican primary in particular will show that not everyone agrees.
why the downvotes? Most people wouldn't consider half a term in congress significant experience. I can't think of many presidents with less. That doesn't mean he did a terrible job or was completely unqualified or anything of the sort. It's just a statement of fact that he didn't have very much experience at the time. Frankly, even though I disagree with his views on most things, I don't think he's actually done that badly. He hasn't done great IMO mind you, but I'm mostly content with how things have gone the last 6 years.
He's suggesting the lobbyists are in the right in this case, and the tax rates for repatriation should be lowered to something more reasonable. Then companies would be paying more tax than they are currently giving the govt getting more revenue, as well as bringing more money into the U.S. for investment in local economies. Everyone wins if they lower taxes. At the current rates, it's simply irresponsible to bring the money back instead of leaving it where it is.
