Just like having piles of stuff taking up all available space in your home is a problem having a 20 TB media collection could be a sign of a larger problem. I'd recommend going through it and getting rid of the things that will never be watched / listened to again or can just be downloaded again. Then worry about backing up what's left.
I say you are wrong, but this guy said it better.
forced a reinvention of politics in many countries by enabling constant two-way dialogue between the rulers and the ruled.
- yes, today more people realize that it is better to be free than "the ruled". As an anarcho-capitalist / libertarian / objectivist I welcome the use of technology to let people to get from under the oppression of these rulers.
Good luck with all of that hyper-socialist nonsense that you are preaching, I was born in a country that had it, USSR, I am glad it fell apart and I would never live in another one like that and you are turning USA into one. No amount of pot-hole and bridge repairs will reduce your trade imbalance, which is, by the way, the real indicator of health of your economy in the age of fake GPD and inflation numbers.
Your trade deficit is around 500 Billion / year and has been there for decades now, you are not paying for things you are getting in the US of A, your suggestion will only worsen the trade imbalance, pot-hole repairs cannot be exported in exchange for all those manufactured goods you are importing for FREE (free, because it's all vendor financed, thus the giant debt).
Anyway, as I said, good luck with your ideas. They have been proven completely false and harmful time and again, but I guess they don't actually teach real history any longer (if they ever did).
The government insists (CBO and all other government nonsense propaganda) that there is no inflation. Food prices are going up? There is no inflation. Phone subscriptions are more expensive? There is no inflation. Gas prices rising? No inflation. Stock market prices going up? No inflation. Bond market going up? No inflation. Commodities going up? No inflation. You live in a 'no-inflation' zone, what are you complaining about? Government says you are at a 'risk' of deflation. Don't you feel that deflation is a risk to you?
Of-course price changes are not inflation or deflation, just prices going up or down. Inflation is expansion of money supply, the Fed is expanding alright, but guess what: no inflation.
Now, on the topic of why the rich _should_ be paying for that. Well, that's the price of a stable and progressive civilization.
- absolutely. The rich ARE paying for EVERYTHING. The businesses are creating all of the products you use, they pay all of the salaries people get (including government salaries, which is money taken away from businesses and from salaries of private industry workers, who get paid by businesses owned by... not the poor, let's be clear on this.)
The rich are creating all of the products, paying all of the salaries, paying all of the taxes. The difference is: in a free society this happens through normal voluntary market participation.
What you are proposing is use of majority of the crowd, which directs the government violence at the few people that are richer than the rest and you think that this is a way to put a price on "stable and progressive civilisation". Well, you are also factually WRONG on that. Before 1913, before income taxes, before IRS, before 99% of all business regulations, before 99% of all that government is doing today the rich were paying for everything and the USA economy was GROWING.
Today, when the government is 100 times larger, enormously more expensive, where business regulations, income taxes, inflation are incalculable basically, where is the society going? The same drain that the economy is going. And AFAIC this is a RIGHTEOUS THING, a good thing, the correct, though unfortunate thing. I am against violence and those who use government violence to destroy individual freedoms (in order to ROB the rich), they should have to suffer all of the consequences of their actions and I welcome this effect, hopefully this will fix the problem, as this coming level of suffering will eventually either help to fix the problem of this violence or it will annihilate this "progressive" civilisation, and if that happens, then good, that's where that particular civilisation belongs for not being civilised enough not to steal from people, not to oppress individuals.
There is nothing stable about what you are proposing and there is nothing good about that type of 'progressive'.
If you actually watch the video and RTFA (OMG, what a noob, obviously) you'll notice that they now can even encode and transmit and successfully read colours within image, which is even more impressive. Nicely done. But it doesn't seem to be possible to use this with motion, you can see a static image, I don't believe this can be done with a movie, they would have to read the entire image many times over, frame by frame (the image is played as a series of audio notes, sounds like a melody) and each simple image takes a few seconds to play.
But I think it's possible to modify this idea, so that instead of fine features, you get information about objects coming closer or moving away from you, take 2 snapshots, figure out the difference in motion, play the difference rather than a snapshot.
I wouldn't even say it's evil, just necessary.
That's because of Win32 where the average user has way more control over the system than they need or is good for them. I overstated it that Win32 goes away with Win8 but the direction is clear; get users out of win32 and into the winrt sandbox and security will improve. MS as always needs to do a better job marketing this aspect.

EMOTION EVOCATION: 30
MOOD REGULATION: 14
MUSIC REWARD: 14
I don't particularly know what this means, I don't spend time listening to music much at all, used to long ago, I can play a couple instruments myself though and have absolute pitch. I think I just don't have much time for music and it distracts me.
Metro gets rid of the security nightmare that is win32. In the long run this will save industry both time and money. Sure it will cost a bit in up-front training but it's worth it in the long run.
Oracle gets these contracts seemingly easily. Do you know what it takes to land a contract with a supposedly "non-profit" organisation? Find a way to get a subscription to something like UNGM and look at the insanity that passes for RFPSs there.
70 pages of various legal requirements (shouldn't use child labour, something about land mines, blah blah blah, document formats, timelines etc.etc.)
The requirement: build a database driven website.
* Project award: 25 of March.
* Expected a completed, fully tested and operational system: 1 of April.
Then some more weird nonsense about saving millions and millions of lives. I am not surprised that these projects end up costing tens of millions and more and deliver nothing.
HTML an STD? Strange, I thought that was PHP. Oh, and python was the STD delivery system. C# a music key and Assembler came with Ikea furniture.
The on screen keyboard works well on the surface. I'm using it right now.
How do you type on an ipad in bed?
