But that does not make any of that "innovative".
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Boo. Now if it had Visual Basic support that would be the phone to buy!
He was wrong about the specific version of Android but he was not incorrect in that BB10 still only supports a two-versions-old Android.
No, actually I wouldn't. Just a tip, you're a terrible mind reader so you really shouldn't try to put words in people's mouth.
I never mentioned any such thing.
Yeah reusing old ideas in old ways is nothing close to innovation.
No, it's still up-to-date. 10.3 added only 4.3 support and 10.3.1 didn't change that. Even if we assume that it's 4.3.1 support, that's a year and a half old release and 2 versions behind current Android. In what universe does that not imply it only supports "older" Android?
Which only supports 4.3. So, as the AC GP said, that is an 'older' version of Android.
No innovation? There's nothing else like them in the market.
So if I start a buggy whip company am I now innovative?
You're simply wrong because:
1) Legal tender can be refused if the debt didn't exist at the time of the payment (aka the purchasing of a car).
2) The US has something called "invitation to bargain" which allows a shopkeeper to refuse cash. This is backed up by case law that is nearly 150 years old.
So, no, that wasn't the original intent and isn't backed up by any US case law.
Ignorning all the ways HTTPS can by MITMed and/or forced to use insecure ciphers?
They already pay developers to make x86 iOS. It's the very people who create the iOS SDK. The simulator runs iOS as native x86 code.
UIKit is pretty much the only major difference when it comes to frameworks. The rest is pretty much all the same code as OS X with sometimes certain APIs not exposed. Either way, as I said, the x86 version is already long since available as the iOS Simulator. So there is no need for "secret teams", etc. when all the work is already long since been done by the Xcode/iOS SDK developers. Anyone who has done any sort of iOS development in the last 6 years has already used "iOS for x86".
As I've said before, if he's really this stand up guy, why did he run?
Because he didn't feel he was going to get fair treatment from the government. It's the same reason why a multitude of whistleblowers flee their parent country for fear of retaliation.
IF he really had good and legal reasons to do what he did, take it to court and face the music.
Riiight. Because the government never plays dirty against whistleblowers, right? Oh wait... Obama is one of the worst presidents when it comes to trying to attack whistleblowers.
Civil disobedience has ALWAYS carried the potential for punishment and if you break the law to make your point that the law is unjust you should stand ready to be arrested, imprisoned and tried in court for what you choose to do. You don't break the law and then run away like a coward...
Said by a big, brave keyboard warrior. Get back to us when you actually face a similar situation to the one Snowden is in.
Then you must live in some alternate dimension then the one the rest of us live in. In this one, most of the polls show 2:1 and 3:1 ratios in which the respondents say he should be put on trial and they don't support his actions.
