How about filing a DMCA claim against their movies?
I use the Free Cable plugin almost every night. Maybe you have to make sure yours is being updated?
I don't know about the Hulu plugin. Haven't used that in a couple months.
Who gets to decide how much is too much?
Something tells me you answered your own question just there. And if it is 'the people in those countries' deciding when too much is too much, then the GP poster commenting he feels Gates has too much is certainly within his rights to say.
And that's what the tax code is supposed to settle.
In a capitalistic society there is a need for some individuals to have excess capitol/money to invest in new ideas/companies. Gates just seems to be the richest.
And you know what? It has to be someone. Why not him. At least he seems to make an effort to give away some of the money towards his charity.
Do I like what he did with the Microsoft OS monopoly? Of course not. But what he's done with the money isn't as disgusting as just putting it into big oil or buying his own island or something like that.
Agree. The postal service is a steal at it's price, and has an exceedingly high rate of success in properly delivering mail.
My parents live in one of the boroughs of New York City. They moved a few miles. Their mail got forwarded for the requisite 6 months and they changed all the addresses as good folks do.
Forward 20 years. They go away on a trip and decide to stop their mail when they are gone. When they go to the postal office to pick up their mail, the lady at the desk asks them to wait for the local supervisor. The supervisor asks them if they previously lived at [their previous address]. Apparently a foreign bank had been sending out a bank statement once a year to my dad and he forgot about it with the move. The post office was required to send it back, but the supervisor connected the dots and told my dad that the return address was a foreign bank.
technically it's not that difficult.
It actually is simple. All you need to do is destroy the planet. And I don't mean just kill all life on the planet. I mean make it so that the planet Earth no longer exists. (see here: http://qntm.org/destroy )
The same Palin that had quotes miss-attrributed to her that were spoken by a half rate SNL actress...
Admittedly she must have been a reasonable actress if people were quoting her and thinking that they were quoting Palin.
Screw all that. Do what I did:
1. Download XBMC and install it on your desktop computer. Play around with the plugins and add the repository for the repository installer plugin.
2. Download via XBMC the plugins for Free Cable, Hulu, You Tube, and whatever other video plugins look good. From the previous step you shouldn't have to add any repositories on via their websites, you can do it via the repository installer plugin.
3. Once you get things working fine on the previous step, get a nettop PC to put by your TV and use a remote control to control (this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0041ULKW2/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 is great as it comes with a remote and built in IR receiver and can turn itself on via the remote as well.)
4. Cut out the Video part of your cable bill and just get a reasonable download speed on your internet (the cheapest level is probably enough).
Hopefully at this point you'll be able to control XBMC via the remote control and never have to touch the nettop computer again.
They're hand made. You should expect some varience.
Sort of like how when you buy a wooden table they have a clause that there are natural knots in the wood that may effect the grain of the table.
In the same way, these missiles are obviously made of wood.
Just checked out the website.
The articles are quite similar to the ones here, but minimal discussion on articles from days ago.
Also I'm personally not a fan of the advertise placement on that site (which is also the reason I don't read techdirt much).
Sales taxes haven't been applied to catalog businesses for decades. What's the difference between a dead tree catalog and a catalog on the inter webs?
Scale. Catalog businesses never had 1% the volume of current online cross-state businesses.
Plus, purchasing via catalog didn't make you exempt from paying taxes. It just put the onus on the individual to calculate and collect taxes, rather than the business. This law just puts the onus back on the business.
I like the $1 million dollar floor, if it's on online gross. It allows small mom-and-pop businesses to have an online presence, and when they grow a bit they'll have to use tax software to help them out. $1 million gross seems like a reasonable number to me. You start collecting more than that you should be able to pay for some infrastructure to collect taxes. We increase that too much and big companies will be incentivized to break up their businesses to smaller units to slip under the radar.
While I applaud anything this complex being made open source, I'm wondering it it's a few years too late.
We are on the cusp of an era of high pixel density ("retina") displays. Will we still need to worry about more complex rendering of fonts (ie: hints for small sizes), or just render at whatever point size to screen and be happy that the resolution is high enough to make whatever we display readable?
You don't need three friends.
You just need three Facebook Friends.
Good to know.
I'm not exactly interested in Nook OS, but wouldn't mind buying the hardware. Can it run stock Android, or are there plans to allow it going forward?
You're probably right.
Better to make it a phone app.
What experiment is this?
Sorry, I thought I had a reasonable science background in high school, but that was apparently too long ago for me to remember this experiment.
Can someone provide details? I'm a little cautious in having it show up in my Google history at the moment.
