How would OSM combat a malicious editor?
Molotov cocktails and machetes!
then you are an idiot.
You had a nice semi-informative argument but couldn't help but show your true color in the end.
The reason you can't use TurboPascal is because web pages run in the browser virtual machine, and TurboPascal code runs in the TurboPascal runtime environment linked into the native code TurboPascal application.
Which does not preclude an interpreter being written to convert the code into the browser VM readable code. Just because a language was originally designed to be compiled doesn't mean it can't be redesigned. Whether it's the best use of resources not withstanding.
All of your arguments are irrelevant to my comment. They might very well be valid but only because the people designing the newer systems made decisions that precluded the use of existing technologies. Which in fact validates my claim more than nullifies it.
BBOS at that time (4 point something or other) could only do email via BES; one account only and no POP3 / IMAP
Perhaps you weren't aware of how to set them up but the ability was there. I had my Yahoo account set up via POP3 on my 7230 with BB OS 4.x in 2004.
connecting to multiple email accounts (multiple Exchange account at that) and having a consolidated inbox was probably the major reason for the switch
iOS & Android still can't match the BB for email support so I can't fathom what you are talking about here. I have at least six email accounts on my BB and can open them in a consolidated folder or individually. iOS 7 has dramatically improved over previous versions but it's still not on par with BB. I remember my first iOS device and discovering that you couldn't delete a calendar once it had been added to the device even if you deleted the existing email account without wiping the device! I think they fixed that in iOS 4.
And it is funny that everyone compares BES to Exchange ActiveSync because the latter only handles 1/4 of the things a BES does. To your point most likely the percentage is closer to 75% of people don't need the capabilities of the BES but if you EVER use VPN on an iOS device to connect to your company network you would have been better off with a BES. I have been able to connect to my network shares and manipulate files on my company network since 2003 with a BlackBerry WITHOUT connecting to a separate VPN because the BES creates an encrypted always on VPN connection to the corporate network. I could use remote desktop on my BB in 2004. It wasn't pretty or fast but it worked. Doing that on an iOS device works well but if the screen turns off while I am connected I get bumped off of VPN and have to start all over. Point and laugh all you want about how BB underestimated the allure of full color touch but they nailed communication and security and still haven't been matched on that front.
Are you saying Aereo would have been OK if they'd sold one of those OTA DVRs and colocated them at their warehouse? Aereo's fatal flaw is that they rented people a homogeneous device rather than selling them one of a menu? That, my friend, is a legal Rube Goldberg much more intricate than the technical workaround Aereo intended.
Not exactly. The way I understood how the SC ruled was the device would need to get the signal directly from the broadcaster and be located in the consumer's residence. So a consumer would need to have the DVR located on the premises and receive the signal directly from broadcasters via a local antenna. The Tablo is basically the same as the Aero service except you own the device and set it up at home. The Tablo doesn't even have a video out port. It's tuners are only accessible through streaming clients. It doesn't solve the concrete/metal interference problem that Aero did and perhaps they should pursue that argument on their appeal. I disagree with the SC finding as Aero was not altering in any way the content being delivered whereas the cable/satellite companies actually inject extra content/advertising into their rebroadcasts. Ultimately the networks want Aero to have to pay for retransmission and are lobbying even the courts to make that a reality.
