Are the files removable from the Apple app to VLC app?
Yes, they are. Select any file of the type you want to change. Hit Command-I, or Get Info from the file menu. You see a thing that shows the default app handler for the file in the Info window. The current handler is the text of a typical dropdown that allows you to change the handler to a different app.
You can also make the change of handler universal (for all files of that type, in other words). I did just that with mp3s. When I have loops or small mp3 files I just want to open them in QuickTime, rather than have iTunes launching. So I changed the handler to QT. Easy.
When I am in the iTunes environment, itself, the mp3s in iTunes open and play in iTunes, But if I want to go into my directories or Desktop (whatever) and listen to one thing (even a track that also would appear in the iTunes library) it'll open with QT. Fast, simple, etc.
If you are a Mac user, as a drinker of the Kool-Aid you have no choice. Whatever is coming out is insanely great, you simply must believe that because any other thought would lead to madness.
What a ridiculous, inaccurate generalization. You've been around long enough to "know better." Oh wait
Maybe this will remind you of a long-time theory regarding hardware/software choices. ( "long-time" referring to whenever it was that you decided that the purpose of computers and software was to facilitate endless tinkering with the OS, itself (you know, "forking," etc), rather than accomplishing some set task, or goals)
I couldn't give a rat's ass about Apple, as a company. But I use a Mac. why? Because I need to accomplish certain work, and the software I want to use runs on Apple gear. That ring any bells in your brain? Identify the task, select software , THEN select platform
Don't misunderstandâ"although that's apparently one of your strong suitsâ"I worked for a while as an MRI tech, and definitely know my way around UNIX and SPARCstations, and whatnot, also. And, I went through a phase, during a long break in audio engineering-related work, to run Linux on whatever Mac box I had laying around. I liked messing with the operating system. But my enjoyment of, or interest in, my own pursuits vis a vis computers and their software, did not dictate that I must go all reactionary and make unfounded statements about everybody else.
A lot of idiots buy Macs. But guess what pal? A lot of idiots buy other gear, instead. So what? Ninety-nine, point nine nine nine percent of those users couldn't give a flying fuck what you or I "think" about them and their choices.Get over yourself. Life is short, fuck.
(PS - nobody in the medical profession says "flatline" either)
That's right, the word they use is "coding."
My first question is: What have other developers used, or done, when faced with similar choices? And, secondly, how can I, as a third-party to the "banking" details (passwords, product IDs, etc), test whatever I end up with without forcing my clients to divulge info that they'd be crazy to share?"
The FCC lost the case because the Court said they lacked "statutory authority" only. It had nothing to do with "rights" as was alluded to in the article summary.
That means Congress can pass a law giving the FCC that statutory authority; the FCC's statement about looking at various aspects of their "Broadband Plan" to discern where they have "authority" and where they do not, is a bit on the disingenuous side, no? It's as if they're saying, "We'd like an open/fair internet access situation, but we just can't do it." Whether bought-off Senators and Congress-people can muster a little "independence" and simply enact a law giving them that authority is another issue.
My g-friend is an attorney who deals with legal/regulatory affairs for the Cable/Telecom industry, and her position (which was shared by Comcast, AT&T, Time/Warners, etc), before the ruling, was that the FCC lacked statutory authority. Whaddya know?
This was a simple, easily-ascertained fact, not an opinion, or "interpretation", and therefor, it seems obvious (to me) that the FCC was well aware of that same fact, and was just playing a "game" in order to get some jurisdictional precedent. Why would they do that? My guess: To appear "concerned' about net neutrality, on the surface, but to ratify the business-as-usual abdication of industry/utility oversight, the interests of the "Public" (and society, as a whole) be damned.
If you just want to stop feeling awkward, get some videos of the Grateful Dead in concert, and look for closeups up Jerry Garcia's guitar playing. He was missing a finger and managed to not look awkward.
Jerry was missing a joint on his middle finger (okay, the "bird" finger) on his right hand, and had a deep background in both banjo and the pedal steel guitar. He had a very spare, ergonomic (in the sense of 'no wasted motions') style of playing that was fun to watch. (and pretty much unparalleled if you liked his sound, too).
But, things that involve 'muscle memory' can be relearned, believe me. Back in '69, or '70, I was doing a handful of benefits with an impromptu R 'n' B outfit, in the Santa Cruz area, and I met a rather brilliant blues guitar player (a young white guy), who had an unusual style: He played left-handed, and, on closer inspection, it was revealed that he was holding his guitar pick in his left hand (normal for a "leftie"), but he was holding it between his thumb and pinky finger!
He was missing the other three fingers on his left hand, entirely. They'd been 'lost' (at the knuckle!) in a nasty woodshop accident. That's bad enough, but it turned out the accident had only happened within the two years previous to the time I met the guy, and he was originally a right-handed guitarist! In other words, he'd played since early childhood, with all the fingers of his left hand being used to make the notes on the neck, while his right hand was the one doing the picking. I was astonished, no shit, and boy could he play.
This typing topic is interesting, sure, but let's not get carried away with switching keyboard layouts, or marginally faster typing, as being some sort of huge feat, eh?

...and therefore used the word "convicted" in the laymen's sense of the word. Actually, I don't even know what the correct legal term is.
Then how dare you tell me how I can use it. I wish more people would choose to not buy those things. Fuck Apple.
Right, and their business model/policy differs from Motorola, Samsung, LG et. al., and Verizon, MetroPCS, Sprint et. al., exactly how? So when Verizon cripples, or "meters," the built-in "features" of Android will that be Google's fault, or Verizon's or Motorola's, or, in the minds of you retarded Apple-haters, will that be more Apple shit? Fuck your logic pal.
