A judge has to decide if a lawsuit settlement can be dropped in a bankruptcy. Typically, they are not as far as I understand, so bankruptcy is not really a viable alternative.
Just register a similar typo-squatting type domain in the name of the 3rd party service and bring that to your employer's attention.
Or they renew on Carousel.
I'm fairly certain they did this to allow more Office interoperability, since Office still uses quite a bit of COM crap. As for it being a Windows bias, I don't really think that has any meaning since COM doesn't exist on the other platforms (not that I'm aware of, anyway). Besides, COM Interop is a nightmare to work with and I've only ever seen developers use it when they had no other choice (i.e. the PHB has to have his automated data dump of a 4-column table in a perfectly formatted Excel 2003 file rather than a
I agree that it is a bad patent just because it is an obvious thing to do. However, I think comparing it to sudo is a bit of a stretch. Maybe I'm running the wrong version of Linux, but I've never had sudo pop up and tell me that I don't have permission to do something and would I please provide the password to an account that does have said permission. Is "Permission denied" a sudo prompt that I have been hitherto unaware?
I really don't think you could pull that off in a car without power steering. Unless maybe you've got really muscular legs and are wearing really sticky kneepads...
The judge agreed with you. Looks like CW ran an old story, or they are talking about an appeal and forgot to mention it. http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2008/05/court-smacks-autodesk-affirms-right-to-sell-used-software.ars
The screenshot in TFA would seem to indicate that what they are calling a "ribbon" is simply the same interface that Chrome and Safari are already using.
This may be true, but Les Paul actually created multi-track recordings with records in the 30's. Go check out "Lover" from 1938. Sure, it wasn't on tape, but it was still multi-track in the sense that he created a single recording with himself playing all the parts.
I have kids and I DO want a simplified tax code. In fact, I would prefer a sales-tax only model. And since I'm wishing, I would like to see the federal government abandon all activities that don't involve national or inter-state relations.
bruce_the_loon writes "They have blamed viruses. They have blamed neighbors. They have accused police of planting it. In rare cases, they have admitted downloading it. This is the first time someone has accused a cat of downloading child porn onto their computer. This seems like a defense almost too stupid to be made up."
Actually, I do hook tuna to the electrical wiring in the childrens' bedrooms. That soft sashimi glow is the perfect night light.
I just thought that Pete Townsend had gained an unprecedented level of global policy control.
Several sources are reporting that work on The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf, a console port of the popular PC game, has officially been suspended. CD Projekt, makers of the original game, were working with WideScreen Games on the new version. WideScreen says that CD Projekt missed a significant payment for their role in the development, leading them to stop work on the game. They are emphatic that development won't continue until CD Projekt makes good on the debt, but CD Projekt says, "All payments were done on time according to milestone plan. ... Truth is that payments were later than originally planned but this was solely due to delays in production. The delays were growing in the project due to WSG [continuing] to miss the deadlines." The game's future is uncertain.
I think in addition to a shakeout in advertising prices, no one has really figured out how to make good internet advertising. Companies have become so infatuated with motion and interactivity that they have abandoned the principles that drove good advertising in the past. They resort to cheap gimicks to try to grab your attention rather than focusing on the quality of the content.
