Perhaps you're referring to some news of which I'm not aware.
First I don't believe in Walled Gardens
MS's walled garden didn't previously have enough of a bar to scammers. Any store without any selection criteria will be predominantly scamware.
(Not including desktop Linux here as there's no one to scam. But definately including Android.)
There's no problem with other apps in the same genre. The problem is where apps use a similar name and/or logo to pass themselves off AS another app.
EA isn't the villain here - scammers are.
This isn't about picking an obscure made up name for an application. This is about using a name that is similar or the same as another well known app to scam people into downloading.
I'm glad to see the scamware get the boot
However your ideological position involves leaving the known scammers there. A good clue that your ideology is no good.
His initial report OF HIS EXPERIENCE was correct. Linux Mint has chosen to hide Google away as an extra, and this resulted, as intended, in the user thinking it wasn't an option. This user stopped there. That's the fault of Mint, not the user.
Do you always believe what other people say, as long as it fits your pre-conceived notions?
khayman80's links are to your own posts, claiming Obama's birth cert to be a fake.
Of course it may be that you no longer belive in the conspiracy theory you used to expound. But denying it just makes you a liar. And reflects on the nonsense you post on other topics, such as AGW.
EVERY SINGLE ATTEMPT in the past to accurately predict anything even 20 years in the future has failed MISERABLY and has been LAUGHABLY wrong.
That's quite easily proved wrong. Here's two examples:
Moore's law is a prediction that is just coming up to 50 years old, and has been uncannily accurate.
In 1705, Edmond Hally predicted a visible comet would appear in the sky in 1758. A successful 53 year prediction made at a time when no other person in the world realised comets could be periodic.
Predictions of stuff like flying cars is of course doomed to failure. But spotting a trend and predicting based on it is a perfectly reasonable and successful prediction technique. Both these are of that kind, and so is climate change.
Shut the fuck up you imbecile. If you can't even accept a birth certificate your head is so far up your own rectum no one can hear you.
You're a birther? Fuck me, you're an imbecile. I've lost what little respect I had for your opinions. You have to be insane or a deliberate liar to be a birther.
You presume his ethics conflate violence with food animals to violence to humans.
Because he already connected the two.
"These are like people who don't want to know where Meat comes from."
If you think there's value to watching animal slaughter video, but it doesn't change your behaviour towards animals, then the argument for watching human slaughter becomes very weak. It becomes about some sort of personal value of "being able to take it" or "being affected by it. Which is simply selfishness, and doesn't override the propriety of not showing it.
Your hate is a perfect match for the terrorists hate. Whilst other people rise above it, you demonstrate that your religion is as flawed as theirs.
I guess you don't follow US politics. The house has a Republican majority. And they've been blocking the president in everything they can. They are responsible for the problems in the Affordable Care Act.
Because it shows that video level knowledge of what happens to animals in the abattoir wasn't enough to stop you from being a cause of them being killed.
It did as little good as watching a video of the beheading would do.
Do you eat meat?
