What Aereo is doing is not even rebroadcasting, which would apparently be the word that the broadcast industry is trying to redefine. It's basically the same as having an antenna, DVR and Slingbox at your home, except it's not at your home and there are a lot of them under one roof.
Android versions 2.0 and later already support multiple accounts. My own phone has 2 accounts associated with it, and would have more if I could stomach using MotoBlur. Things like securely checking (and, depending on the infrastructure, syncing) corporate email and calendar can be done without a "split personality" device, but I guess that just doesn't fly in the case of IT control freaks.
Next thing you know, we'll be using with hyroglifics and pictograms.
Otherwise known as "icons"?
Why do anything with it? You can already remove the URL bar from Firefox if you want to. That's what the "Customize Toolbars" menu option is all about. If they do muck around with it, then I don't have an objection as long as there's an option to bring it back, as there are with the menu and status (er, 'scuse me, add-on) bars.
Except that it isn't sufficient. There is no Skype user presence information or a way to call them with Skype Connect. You have incoming calls from Skype users, and beyond that it's an overpriced SIP termination service.
Also, "third party hack" implies that the official Skype/Asterisk integration module was a kludge, created without aid or consent from Skype. It's true that earlier solutions were like that, but that's not the case here.
Indeed. There are things that you can do seamlessly (without a 3rd party hack) with Skype for Asterisk that you can't do with the SIP shoehorn that they came up with. With Skype Connect, you have no presence information and you can't call other Skype users. You can accept Skype or SkypeIn calls, or do outgoing calls with SkypeOut. That's it. If they'd add the ability to do outbound calls to other Skype users, that would at least be something.
Then there's the cost. Skype Connect comes with a per-channel monthly charge in addition to what you pay for outgoing calls. By comparison, Skype for Asterisk only includes a one-time per-channel charge for the module itself. Come to think of it, that's probably why they'd drop that over Skype Connect.

1) Uncapped business internet connection
2) Static IP outside my private network that could be assigned to a wireless router
There's still that "no illegal activity" part of the ToS, though. I doubt having a business net connection would indemnify me from anything, even if the only relevant equipment of mine is a wireless router. Frakking criminals...
He's not even retweeting, though... that's the thing. All he did was mirror the list of Twitter feeds that the NYT has already published on the web as a Twitter list, so that you only have 1 thing to follow instead of 40. Nothing is being reproduced, or even forwarded.
Either the NYT lawyers don't have a clue how Twitter works, or they just don't like what the guy is saying about them. The latter is the free speech issue.
When a book entitled "Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure" was first contested by the public, Amazon said that it was protected by free speech. It seems they've changed their tune... I just looked, and that book is gone from the site as well.
RTFA. The books being removed are related to incest, not erotica in general.
On the one hand you are able to finally discard the truly broken sections of your previous implementation...
Like the buggy interpretation of SO_REUSEADDR that allows something that should never happen (namely, more than one socket listening on a port at the same time)? I've been wanting to see that one die for the last 10 years...
