Or you mean an industry wanting a new entrant in to that industry to be subject to the same regulations the rest of the industry is forced to follow, right?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Let me take that further.
It would be like saying Ford should pay for highway maintenance while still funding it through gasoline taxes, etc as well. Additionally, the roads would never be maintained beyond the bare minimum and rarely if ever expanded, even though they are double funded.
There is the car/road analogy that you were looking for.
You're accusing Amazon of colluding with.... Amazon? That word doesn't mean what you think it means.
It emits a circularly polarized beam of light of course!
Good luck finding a hospital with a functioning circa 1986 MRI and requisite control systems that haven't been updated to with post 1986 technology!
Your other point still stands though.
So can many universal remotes, so can a computer, so can anything else.
This is almost as silly as the "access to an unencrypted disk is access to your data!!!!!" story from a few days ago.
Not really. That was an *extremely* poorly controlled experiment by grade school students. Magically, no one else has produced similar results in an actual controlled study.
If your *only* evidence is a single experiment performed by individuals with barely rudimentary training in the sciences, you might want to consider that it is your bias causing you to readily accept the outlier as opposed to the norm.
BES in theory can only be intercepted and cracked with a massive amount of computation time, limiting the functional use of any dragnet attempts.
Journalists never understand the difference between BIS and BES though.
I think it's the hubris of Apple hurting the "software users" more than the patent holder. Instead of working something out, notifying its users, or something else, it just makes their app work poorly now.
Perhaps they can be told they are holding it wrong causing connectivity issues....
And yet it was the Soviet Union that spent itself in to oblivion and collapsed first. History doesn't support your position.
Since when? iOS has had repeated and nearly constant flaws that have allowed for compromises both locally and remotely (via webpages). At this point it's such a given that this is mostly a non story.
I thought the RDF had dissipated, but I guess not.
But with an ebook, he can increase the font size to help out with that worsened eyesight...
Well, we also don't have trouble creating fusion reactions that put out *far* more energy than we put in to them.
The problem is doing anything useful with that energy other than making a really big boom.
The reason is, PDF and ebooks are really at odds with one another.
The point of PDF is to render the exact same on each screen. Like a physical book, each page should always look the same (only zoomed or not zoomed). An ebook needs to be able to reflow the text to support changing aspect ratios, font sizes, etc. When you do this with PDF, you can just zoom in or out. If your application is actually reflowing a PDF, that means it's not really displaying a PDF. Instead, it is taking the content, extracting it, and displaying it in some native format.
It's funny that you call someone out with "" and then start making claims that you aren't backing with a shred of evidence either.
