It happened with ISS when IBM bought them and happened with Tipping Point when HP bought them.
Given Cisco's track record I have little faith that Sourcefire will be as good as it was.
Hours later, SMPA investigators also conducted a surprise raid on the headquarters of local portal site Daum on similar suspicions. The investigators confiscated hard drives and other documents during their raid on Daum's Seoul office in Hannam-dong, central Seoul.
Google seems to have hindered the investigators from what's being said, something that none of the other companies under investigation have done. Not sure how you can link that with protectionism or some kind of bias.
Exactly, ever tried to find an Apple Store in Seoul ? Or see people with iPhone in the streets ?
Nobody's stopping anyone from building an Apple Store (or a store for any foreign company/franchise, which there are plenty of). The fact remains that Apple simply isn't in sufficiently high demand in Korea, PCs dominate.
In regards to iphones, they're not actually unpopular, depite your allegations, but oddly enough smartphones live and die through their apps and iphones have no advantage in that regard. If anything they have a disadvantage because korean language resources are more extensive for smart phones made by korean companies (surprise! surprise!)
Or people driving ANYTHING but a korean car (Hyunday/Samsung/... whatever) ?
Oddly enough cars made in korea are cheaper in korea, just like cars manufactured in the US are cheaper there
Another factor is that if you look closely you'll find that most korean car manufacturers have significant foreign ownership
See what happened with Apple and Samsung case ?
You mean how Apple started a litigation war against Samsung? What does apple being dicks have to do with koreans?
Now we reach the crux of what your slandering was setting the stage for, spreading misinformation in regards to japan's past and present behaviour
Do you seriously believe younger people should continue to complain about what Japan or any country did during WWII ?
All right-minded and moral people, regardless of age or ethnicity, should condemn japan.
The red herring in your comment (and that of many japan fanboy trolls) is that it's implied that japan of now is somehow different from the japan of WW2. It is not, let me quote a few examples:
- Discrimination for those not seen to be "japanese": This includes both 4th-generation-born-in-japan koreans as well as ethnic japanese that are foreign born, eg. brazilian japanese. To give you an example, zainichi were strongly discriminated against for even using their korean names.
Basically this image of what constitues "japanese" recalls the "true" german being tall, blonde, and blue eyed that the Nazi party espoused.
FUKUOKA, Yasunori of Saitama University is a specialist on the systematic discrimination of Zainichi (koreans born in japan), and David Suzuki co-authored "The Japan we never knew" to bring light to the discrimination that non-"japanese" face.
- Imperialistic policies and historical revision: Japan itself has not repented their imperialistic actions in WW2, indeed it continues to laud them through their constant visits to Yasunuki shrine and their textbook revisions
In April, which marked the 62nd anniversary of the start of the only ground battle in Japan’s main islands during World War II, the education ministry directed publishers of history textbooks to alter descriptions of the mass suicides, specifically eliminating references to the Imperial Japanese military’s direct role.
Such editing would eliminate accounts that soldiers gave civilians hand grenades and instructed them to kill themselves rather than submit to the Americans.
Hirishi Matsuda, chairman of the union, said the teachers want original descriptions of the suicides left in the textbooks.
Matsuda said that the petition drive has received support throughout Japan. Of the 70,000 signatures, 53,000 were from the mainland.
Earlier this month, about 1,000 people staged a rally in Naha sponsored by the teachers’ union. They marched down Kokusai Street in the city’s crowded shopping area chanting, “Don’t distort the reality of the Battle of Okinawa!”
In the past week, the villages of Tokashiki, Ie Shima, Nago and Nishihara added their objections to the textbook change.
“It is an undeniable fact that the mass suicides could not have occurred were it not for an order, coercion, manipulation or other acts by the Japanese military,” the Tokashiki assembly’s resolution stated.
Do you see many Europeans demonstrating against Germany's acts of war during WWII ?
If japan ever takes the road of attonement that Germany has, then I might agree with you, but before then condemnation is deserved.
There's a time where people should look forward and stop blaming their misfortune on the past.
NIce, so you agree that Shintaro Ishida (governor of Tokyo) should be censured for his racist and militaristic actions? You can preach when he stops being elected with massive majorities.
Korea's economy is terrible but they still try to put on the blame on other countries, go figure...
Another red-herring, the censure of japan has nothing to do with economics but has everything to do with notions of right and wrong, which you obviously have no idea about.
Basically your complaints and slandering is like apartheid south africa complaining that people didn't like them
There is nothing half-way between dinosaurs and birds. One of Jesus' miracles was turning all those gigantic, roving eating machines into birds to the delight of all involved (but mostly just for the lulz.)
Didn't you pay attention in history class?
For the lulz? I didn't know that Jesus was a terrorist!
and core gamers far more likely to continue happily playing on two-, three- or even four-year-old PCs than they were in the past....
What? People played starcraft for ten years! What about Diablo 2? Warcraft 3? Age of Empires? All these have in common two things: First, they're from related genres, which just comes to show my ignorance on other genres. Second, they have really strong multiplayer, which adds replayability far beyond that provided by a good story.
Good point, I think you can add modability to the list of characteristics of games that live for a long time
The pressures of the development and release cycles mean that most games are released somewhat half to nearly finished state, with many having release day patches, so it generally takes in the order of years for a game (plus expansions) to reach where it can be considered done from a development status. Add gameplay updates by modders, eg. graphical refreshes, story extension or unit rebalancing, and that adds a few more years to the life of a game.
There's hundreds of games released every year, yet those that have some unique characteristic seem to live for a long time. You might generalise that as a 'community', be it a multiplayer community or a modding community
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
