For patents on physical devices a working prototype must be submitted or demonstrated. I fail to see why this should not be the case for software.
If you truly believe there's no difference in taste, you have destroyed your tastebuds. I feel sorry for you.
Fact: The West Bank was part of Jordan prior to 1967. This why the country was called Trans-Jordan -- it spanned the Jordan River.
The land never belonged to the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians (a name taken from a territory called Palestine, which was simply Israel renamed by the Romans). They were there as refugees, under Jordanian control. Jordan didn't want them as citiziens and/or they didn't wish to be citizens of Jordan.
Fact: Jordan doesn't want the land back.
Given that no other sovereign nation in the region is requesting territorial control, why should Israel, who conquered it in war, not exercise control?
Fact: Arabs do not want a two-State solution. They are quite happy with the one-State solution -- as long as they are the State.
Israel(li)s don't really give a shit; they just want the violence to end so Israel can end the compulsary draft that has been in place for its entire existance. Arabs want to create another State in which they can oppress minorities, commit honor killings and generally be terrible people.
I pay 99 nis/month for unlimited voice/sms/3g data, plus free international calling to around 40 countries, including the US. That's between $25 and $30 a month, depending on the exchange rate.
You have no ability to comprehend what you read, so really you are totally irrelevant to a discussion based on words.
The vast majority of people who ride a bus have computer-based content creation as the last thing on their mind. Perhaps you should consider that the market for such a thing is so minute that it's not worth commercial consideration.
Or you are way too picky about what you consider content-creation.
Anything that runs Vista without problem can run Windows 7 even better. In truth, 7 is little more than an optimized and bug-fixed Vista. There were also some UI tweaks (such as defaults for UAC), but those don't really affect performance.
That might have been funnier if it were not the fact that just about every single hole-in-the-wall pizza joint in Israel offers delivery.
The primary issue is that the Arabs don't want a State! They didn't want it in 1948 and they've rejected every single workable proposal since then. Why do people ignore the fact that had Israel lost the '67 war, for example, that Israel would have been split between Egypt, Jordan and Syria? The Arab countries have no more interest in a Palestinian State than anyone else.
And Palestine is the name given to Israel by the Romans. If anything, a "Palestinian" State would be entirely Jewish!
Ethnic cleansing? There are somewhere around a billion Arabs in the ME. I don't think you have any idea what you are talking about.
You are a near-sighted idiot. Terminal is one program of many that are part of OS X. As the GP wrote, practically nothing.
What a stupid idea. The iPad was intended to be a portable screen for viewing content. Virtually every app (outside of games) is for viewing pre-generated content of some form or another. The iPad was never intended to be a "dynabook" or to co-opt the idea, so how can it be a betrayal?
I have an idea for Kay... build your own damn hardware and write your own damn software. Don't rely on publicly-traded, for-profit companies to execute your "vision".
Wow. You really don't get out much, do you? All sorts of rational people believe things that are unsubstantiated. I bet you believe dozens, if not hundreds of such things. Of course, one could argue whether someone who makes such a ridiculous statement as yours is entirely rational.
What do you expect from the Terrorist State Agency?
9/11 was the final battle against the terrorists. The terrorists won.
Before we had the phone, there was no way to hangup at all! Let's lament the lack of smacking someone on the face and stalking off!
