Microsoft takes advantage of network effects, Windows is more useful if lots of other people have Windows, because if lots of other people have Windows, most of the available software will be for Windows, so you'll need to buy Windows in order to be able to use it. Books don't work that way.
That one was hiring people with low scores, not people with high scores. Hiring people with low scores won't be seen as discriminating against blacks (who on the average get lower scores), so would be permitted.
even though Superman should be public domain, DC Comics has denied the request.
You do realize that a logo is a trademark issue, not copyright, and trademarks don't expire as long as they are in use?
Hardware can use more electricity depending on how much you use it, but there are physicall limits as to how much more. Your TV isn't going to triple your electricity usage unless your usage pattern is such that you can expect that even before plugging in the TV. You certainly aren't going to find one TV tripling your electricity usage and a second TV not doing so solely because the first TV has a manufacturing defect.
George Bush was elected long enough ago that the Internet was much less influential back then.
He also is a high level politician connected to a large money-making machine. There are two categories of people who aren't affected much by out of context information on the Internet (or in the media): people with nothing to lose, and people who are so rich and powerful that even the Internet can't damage them that much.
Using a naked picture of someone to illustrate the claim that they were naked is probably fair use, especially if other fair use factors also apply (which they probably do), such as non-commercial use and no effect on the market for the naked picture.
Nothing in your British Royal Air Force comparison implies that the person being killed is a citizen of Britain, so you're really not saying that the USA shouldn't kill citizens who are terrorists, you're saying that the USA shouldn't kill *any* terrorists, citizens or not.
He actually was born to parents who were temporarily resident in the US and left the US at the age of 7. Although he did come to the US for college, he clearly wasn't raised in America or as an American.
"We're killing American citizens" may be just as much a problem with how we grant American citizenship as it is with what we do to Americans.
The guy was the son of temporary residents and returned to Yemen when he was 7 (though he came to the US for college).
I've often thought that a lot of the problems with targeted killing of American citizens are really caused by the way we grant American citizenship. People raised in the US rarely become terrorists.
If you have term limits, there's another problem: since the candidate is not going to get elected again, then
1) In his last term, he won't care if he's acting against his constituents' wishes, since he'll never get elected again anyway.
2) In his last term, he'll pander to special interests. This is enabled by point 1) but is also a separate problem, since he'll want to put food on the table once he leaves office and doing so will get the special interest to hire him.
Of course, you can fix point 2 by making it illegal for him to be hired by anyone he affected during his term. For any significant position this ensures that only the rich ever take office, which is its own problem.
And if they called it snoozeSSL, the name doesn't matter. A name is a designation that should enable us to distinguish it from something of a similar kind...
The point is, though, that this name means jack
So *you're* the guy who named GIMP..
Names actually do matter. Think of a name as a type of user interface, and a bad name as an ugly user interface.
For that matter, think of a name as a way to deal with people, and a poorly named project as showing geekish lack of social skills. Saying "please" serves no function other than making people feel better. It doesn't mean anything more than the name. But that still means a lot, because we're human beings, and doing things with no technological effect is part of how we deal with other human beings.
Because, of course, it's so easy to get politicians to reduce taxes.
Yeah, the gas tax wouldn't be so bad if we reduced other taxes to make up for it. But it's not going to happen that way.
The malware is named "Googl app stoy".
If you're dumb enough to download something spelled that way, you deserve, well, almost anything.
If the article was about something in New York, would we see a headline describing it as "York"?
That assumes that the information is classified because it's genuinely sensitive rather than classified because classifying it helps cover up wrongdoing.
