For the business users still running XP, I don't see them flocking to buy new Windows 8 hardware. They are still on XP because either the software they run won't run on anything else, or they are small businesses that don't have an IT budget. As long as the hardware and software works, they aren't going to go out and buy new systems.
Ah, yes. the Siberian pipeline explosion.
They have. They use it do get revenue from your searches.
I never knew a cargo aircraft and combat aircraft where the same thing.
A really great aspect of mobile game development is that while game makers can expect you probably will have networking, they can't rely on it always working. So while they can build features that make good use of networking they can't really make games that don't work when disconnected.
So, the exact same conditions of the PC platform, except mobile developers respect their customers.
No kidding. How could they possibly think the amount of people who played beta would have translated to the amount of people that would actually play the game? Oh, thats right, the PC gaming platform is dead. They only thought people who signed up for beta would play.
The share holders should replace every single executive at Electronic Arts who thought implementing Ubi's DRM scheme was a good idea.
Why not just fork Android ?
Because then they would still beholden to the Microsoft tax.
Why its Firefox OS, I have no idea. From this article here it sounds like its just doing what WebOS did. And given Mozilla's history, this is exactly something Netscape would do. Thinking like a telecom CEO, I could see them being slightly afraid of Meego as it came from Nokia, and it didn't save them. Firefox is probably something they have heard of and used as opposed to the likes of Ubuntu or Tizen.
Ack, I hate that. They don't seem to realize that the PSX was a different piece of kit.
Poster 6) Remember NeXT?
Ya, I remember NeXT. I actually boot into OPENSTEP every now and then so I can remember what fun a good OS is to use and develop for.
I agree ease of use is a factor, though I would argue having a health used games market is even more important.
The Iraq war goal was filled. We're still in Afghanistan. Why?
I think it has more to do with opium.
The war on terror has just been the the new name for the "war" on drugs since the Department of Homeland "Security" was created. The TSA hasn't averted any real terrorist attack and there are numerous stories of weapons getting aboard flights so they aren't even stopping that. The only thing they seem to be good for "officially" (not stealing i-devices and sexual assault) is confiscating drugs.
I'm curious as to why the government cares this much about illicit drug trade.
You don't think Google is *intensely* interested in the outcome of cases regarding uploads of copyrighted materials to online sharing services, given that they own & operate sites intended for sharing, and which can - easily & trivially - be used to share copyrighted content?
In the US, all content is copyrighted. From the funny photo your mother took of you as a young child in a compromising position, to the book report you wrote in 5th grade, all the way up to the recording of you drunkenly beat boxing at the St Patty's Day party last weekend your frienemy took and shared on the Facebook. Of course all these sharing services are used to share copyrighted content. All content is copyrighted.
The problem is the RIAA and the MPAA and their similes want consumers, content creators, and governments to believe that they are the sole Lords of Copyright. That if a work is copyrighted, then by definition it belongs to them. And since it belongs to them, then only they may distribute it and it may only be distributed how they intend it to be distributed and you must pay them for the privilege. Because if you don't, they will attempt to sue you for damages many times larger than the entire planet's GDP and win.
This includes that picture your mom took of you because you were wearing Micky Mouse underwear, the book report your wrote because Jurassic Park is a major motion picture, and the drunken beat boxing video because the RIAA has every beat that could possibly be created copyrighted multiple times over.
Statements like yours proves that they are winning by a large margin and it is very frustrating.
Google, hotfile, etc's interests are only in wanting to be another competitor in the distribution of content and they are doing it and no cost for the content creators. The RIAA and MPAA cannot compete with free. If they can win against a little guy like hotfile or get the United States government to close down Megaupload (didn't they have a commercial where content creator's were singing how they enjoyed using it?) then they can get rid of Google or more likely convince them that giving them an insanely large cut of their revenue like they get on blank CD/DVDs.
Which Nokia phone to you get? I fell for the N95 when it came out, worst mistake in my life. Even though that phone was crap, I would still rather have another Nokia than all the other garbage out there.
Actually, it is hightly unlikely that you are gonna be agressed when you carry the gun. Emphasis added
Which is the whole point in why one would want to carry a gun.
The likely thing is that your son might find it and kill himself with it or you gonna hurt yourself.
Lets rewrite this sentence a few times replacing the word "it" with a few other names for tools.
The likely thing is that your son might find the car and kill himself with the car or you gonna hurt yourself.
The likely thing is that your son might find the table saw and kill himself with the table saw or you gonna hurt yourself.
The likely thing is that your son might find the electrical outlet and kill himself with the electrical outlet or you gonna hurt yourself.
The likely thing is that your son might find the knife and kill himself with the knife or you gonna hurt yourself.
The likely thing is that your son might find the Taliban and kill himself with the Taliban or you gonna hurt yourself
The likely thing is that your son might find methamphetamine and kill himself with methamphetamine or you gonna hurt yourself.
Hopefully you don't go over that list and think all those tools need to be made illegal. Most of them are very useful. Some of them only slightly useful. Some have served their purpose, but you can't outlaw an ideology no matter how much of a tool it is. Others my say something like guns aren't tools or guns are completely different from all those items on that list. You know what, guns are completely different from the items in that list, except perhaps knives. The constitution explicitly says the federal government cannot encroach on our right to bear them.
Teach the kid how to use the gun. Take him to the range as often as possible. Teach him how to clean it, how to use it safely and appropriately. Try not to make it a big deal, and it will be a non issue.
the teacher should ask the pupil around their thought processes when they look at the problem - "talk me through it".
That's why you are supposed to show your work and not just put 141. If a math(s) test is multiple choice, its not a real math(s) test.
