Google already offers a variety of different hosting options:

What I find interesting, is if they're a registrar, can becoming a Certificate Authority be too far behind?
Power is not a problem. Curiosity is nuke powered, not solar, so it can run for about 14 years.
Yes, they are and have been telling Android users to f off. If you want to use Android to watch their videos, you have to use their bastardization of Android.
Kindle and Amazon VOD can go suck an egg.
While Jitsi is nice and all, it looks to me like they have a licensing problem. Jitsi has a dependency on ZRTP4J, which is under the GPL, and Jitsi is under the LGPL. Can anyone explain how this is possible without a license exception? And if they have a license exception, where is it documented? and isn't transfered upstream? If so, why not just make ZRTP4J LGPL instead of GPL? And why are they releasing the whole application under the LGPL, and not the GPL anyway?
Using usernames exposes your users account names to anyone they email. That's not a good practice. Security by obscurity, I know, but it can help.
givenName.surName@ generally works pretty well, and givenName.middleInitial.surName@ in the case of a conflict should help. If there is a conflict at givenName.middleInitial.surName@, you can add an index, eg., givenName.surName.00@ - just make sure you do something like specify what characters are ok (for example, not allowing accented characters or whitespace).
You might also want to have policies and procedures in place to handle special situations - for example someone has a significant privacy issue or has a name that isn't... well... polite
One step closer to sentient spacecraft? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ship_Who_Sang
Amen to that. WindowMaker rocks(ed).
Don't forget copying your floppy disks after getting a powerful item, then importing the character repeatedly from your different backups and giving the item to rest of the people in your party.
1) You don't matter.
2) It doesn't appear to support tablets with camera's for that matter anyway.
I wonder why the comparison was made against the nook color, and not the nook tablet? The tablet is more of a direct competitor. $50 more for the nook tablet gets you the same cpu as the fire, 2x the ram (1GB), 2x the internal storage (16GB), support for up to an additional 32GB via external storage, a less reflective display, and a microphone.
You can even run the amazon app store, kindle app, and amazon instant video player app on the nook tablet. Both the Nook Tablet and the Fire have been rooted, and both have been reported to be able to access the Android Market.
Yeah, they're mixing metaphors. Superman and Dr. Who, do NOT go together. I think it should be the Dark Knight core. No super powers.
Heh. Until somebody gets the idea to use the Interstate Commerce Clause. Then creating and sharing yourself without going through a big publisher will be banned because it's a non-commercial activity that "would have a substantial effect on interstate commerce, even if the individual effects are trivial.". (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wickard_v._Filburn )
I'm actually rather pleasantly surprised that the big software companies haven't tried to use this against open source (at least as far as I know), although I suppose they might if we ever manage to get rid of the big stick they have now (patents).
Heh. Look how high his user number is. He probably wasn't alive 20 years ago. lol.
HIPPA is privacy. I think you mean ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act).
