I'd rather see people working on emulating the last generations consoles. Or the one before that even. The PS2 has one emulator, PCSX2, which is about 80% compatible. The original Xbox has no currently developed emulators.
There's no shortage of ways to play old 8bit and 16bit games. There is a shortage of ways to play last generation games. When our 360s and PS3s finally give up in 5 to 10 years, there's a large number of games that simply won't be playable anymore.
its hard to even add blocking regex's since they actively try to thwart that, too.
One thing they'd have a harder time thwarting is DNS blacklisting. If I know a particular hostname means nothing but trouble, I can tell any computer that I control to refuse to resolve that hostname by adding it to the computer's hosts file. This means the server behind that hostname will see no connections from my computer.
Linux is always an alternative.
Not if the publisher of a particular business-critical application refuses to make it work in Wine, or the manufacturer of a particular business-critical peripheral refuses to provide a Linux driver.
They have a self destruct and carry 4 kilos of C4 explosives on board, in the event of a sudden drop in altitude they detonate and make sure no part falling is larger than a golf ball.
Can you easily grab a UPS truck and stuff it in your car trunk?
And yes UPS/Fedex package theft is a problem.
Bummer, I was hoping for the steady stream of free drone parts...

Selling on ebay they get 11% of your sale price after "fees" and then their Paypal double dip fees. and I just received an email as a power seller that the rates will be going up to basically 14% in 2014
Ebay is doing nothing but riding the money wave. They do not do anything, they have not introduced anything to help sellers or buyers, in fact it's become a turdfest where it is only worth selling on if you have a hard to find item. Common items I sell on Amazon with better protections and lower rates.
Because they were the first mainstream devices (that I'm aware of) with displays that were actually pleasant to use - because of the capacitive touch and big finger-friendly buttons. Resistive displays were pretty horrible even with a stylus. Apple forced other manufacturers to put more emphasis on their UIs (though the first generation iPhones were horrible in terms of features, and so I didn't even consider getting one). I had been using Windows Mobile custom ROMs until I switched to Android around version 2.2 I think.
Yes for the most part....
There can only be one.....
By counting the rings, obviously
By "voice", do you mean voting? Which option should they choose, exactly, if they want the government to stop going to war? There have been protests against a lot of things recently, but they haven't had any effect.
How does that voice their opinion on any of the other thousands of issues that the government decides on?
I hadn't really thought about it before, but I just went to Amazon just now and looked at the menu. I found a "sell" option. You can choose to sell things personally (with deliveries potentially being fulfilled by Amazon, so I suppose that means that people can use the Prime service to receive items if you send them into Amazon first), or as a business. It's perhaps still a slightly different market to eBay, but it's definitely competing on some levels. Amazon do a lot more than just sell goods though..
To be fair, he introduced a lot of innovation into the mainstream, even if the ideas already existed beforehand.
The problem is that technically innovative people often aren't talented or even interested when it comes to marketing or interface design. Steve was good at bringing new ideas to market in a way that people found attractive and easy to use, and thus the ideas became mainstream.
As I usually say in reply to comments like this: I don't want an iPhone, but I'm glad they exist.
Stand a little closer to the edge so us creative people can just give you a little push into the chasm of doom and get you off the resources we can turn into something wonderful.
My favorite pastime as I get older is throwing people who don't like change under the bus.
