How did the FBI confiscate someone else's funds, then?
Apple's normal development cycle.
Whereas, I can still run many of my Win32 apps from the Windows 9x era on Windows 7.
No story here. Apple sells the whole solution. If Microsoft sold hardware boxes they would probably force the API forward more aggressively, too.
Not everybody started slathering and lined up in front of the Apple Store to buy their iDingy on release day. Two years old can mean they bought it two years ago near the end of it's 'availability period.'
It's not surprising that Apple fans offer up 'buy a new one' as the solution to any issue. Flashing plastic at the Apple Store is like the migratory flight of birds, eh?
You apparently bought an off-brand. My "Galaxy Tab 2 7.0" (admittedly it's weird way they branded that thing) is several years old now, and Samsung pushed out a new and free Android update to it last week.
Next time buy Samsung.
No, it's not true. I can boot up my computer that runs Windows XP, or my other computer that runs NetBSD 4.0, and it doesn't automatically and forcibly upgrade the OS to a version that doesn't run well on the old hardware.
It's called a forced upgrade to drive hardware sales, you shill.
Yes, I know I'm posting this one on apple.slashdot.org so it's you apple freaks' turf and I'm being rude.
Single payer would have, in a single swoop, blown all the cards off the table. You're right that the 'compromise' that the Democrats singlehandedly rammed through is messier and more protracted.
If we'd just let you fucks do what you wanted we could all be standing in lines at the doctor's office now, instead of this turmoil and uncertainty.
You need to engage in further study of Chairman Mao's "On The Correct Handling of Contradictions Among the People", comrade. Your approach in argument is brash and will alienate members of the masses who might become class-aware and join the people's struggle if proper tactics are taken. Please prepare your Self Cricitism for our next meeting.
So, if grandpa has $20,000, or a little cabin up at the lake that he'd like his grandchildren to enjoy, it gets taken away by the state. Whereas Algore has $20,000,000 so his descendants can spend $200,000 of that on lawyers to keep the rest.
What a nice fucking deal. I didn't realize you were a grand defender of rich fucks, jedidiah.
Probably easier than it is for a US citizen who wants to work for a living to legally immigrate to Mexico.
Many young people go through a 'Beatles' phase. It's one of the possible paths of '(recordings of) music appreciation' that young people can go through. Another alternative artist to fixate on is Jim Morrison. Che t-shirts and other bric-a-brac from 'The Sixties' (which really happened in the early 70's) figure in this.
It's kind of a College Freshman phenomena. And a rite of passage for some people.
In my reading of the issue, they mainly did it to keep third parties from releasing shitty poorly done copies of the recordings as 'New Beatles Material' in the Beatle's name.
This is bootleg territory, and the material released on iTunes is presumably of better quality than what the bootleg hustlers would have been selling in places like the cheap bins at Walgreens and WalMart.
Don't ask Marc Andreesen, Bezos or any of the other 'I was there first' fucks about how it works.
Right now the beetles are out of season on Animal Crossing. Unless you time travel, of course.
This is entertainment.slashdot.org. If you want to virtually fellate Steve Jobs, you need to post in discussions hosted on apple.slashdot.org.
So, you're saying he is sort of 'dirty' for associating with copyright at all? Even though he responded with more details that explain why that would be a meaningless gesture?
What do you say to all the people who license their software under the GPL, where copyright law is a pivotal part of the license.
