    Of course apple profita from used laptops. If noone buys used apple laptops some of those who are replacing cannot afford the new one and there is a crowding out effect. Moreover, the higher the demand for other vendors, the higher the support for them.

    Don’t ever buy apple devices. It’s not a good company

    As soon as you share the into with a potential employer that it is you, you lose the privacy. You have to assume it’s publicly known. It’s not worth the effort.

    If you do your research everyone knows you spend most of your day researching anyway. At least your supervisor will know who you are. You will want to talk to others and tell them “I’m currently research xy. I wrote this idea, what do you think about it?” Etc.

    You should do the phd because you are intrested in the topic, not to gain some degree.

    You can write your good papers as an anonymuous person. If they are very good, people would cite you. People will want to invite you.





  • Landing sites would be the second step and only nice to have. I am interested in the question how far I will get. I know that I can make xy km/h. How far do I get in the river? Osmand wasn’t able to route through the river I was looking for, it may work somewhere else. Water level may vary due to weather conditions. This would be a highly specific need. It would be awesome if osmand could fetch the water level but that’s somewhat overkill. It doesn’t have to navigate around weirs but it may be nice to highlight that there is a weir.
