The only thing Oracle did was plaster their name on the product, once they change support, then worry. Wait until Libre Office is out of beta then switch and your nightmares are over.

If you didn't like to talk to a teller before, now's the time. The receipt you receive is sometimes more then what's given back from the ATM. You can stuff it into your file cabinet until the money is spent. Your money is secure up to $250k, so if you have more, then start creating different accounts or start investing the money into something else.
I can go on and on or better yet someone else will add to my comments.
Sure, people play the game. But Piracy only basis this on the Story of the game if there is one.
Most publishers release a patch, one that cannot be downloaded easily, only to users who register their purchased game allowing for multiplayer versions or server logins to be possible.
Console systems may seem to be the best line against piracy, but that's not true, because your LIVE account doesn't keep track of CD keys. If you modded your system to play a copied game, then your home free, and the servers know none the wiser.
Call of Duty, no 2 keys can be online at the same time when playing multiplayer, so the only way to obtain one is to purchase the game or play when the other user is not online at the same time.
But here's where piracy works. One PC copy that is used for a multplayer is not hindered for LAN games, because there is no check other then the game initiation. But this entails coordination from friends and playing time.
So, what does piracy boil down to? Playing a game that you only want to try for a period of time that extends Demo or trial time? Or does it mean that a bunch of friends want to play at the same time but all cannot or don't want to pay for the game?
Nothing new. On the ScreenSavers G4TechTV they built one that lasts. With cardboard Power and Reset buttons.
This was the best powerplant in Sim City 2000. You launched a satellite to that would beam energy back down to your big dish plant. The best part is when it missed and fried the terrain around it.
who ever comes out on top wins and will have the new standard. it'll boild down to a popularity contest. The fastest and easiest will show more color.
The new oshiba for $400 beats both of those in preformance and quality.
in other words, Freudian Slip.
"As the first Android device with Flash, the new HTC Hero represents a key milestone for Android and the Flash Platform. With close to 80 percent of all videos online delivered with Adobe Flash technology, consumers want to access rich Web content on-the-go." said David Wadhwani, vice president and general manager, Platform Business Unit at Adobe. "The collaboration with HTC offers people a more complete Flash based Web browsing experience today and presents an important step towards full Web browsing with Flash Player 10 on mobile phones in the future."
The new HTC Hero is a key element of the HTC experience and a new generation of HTC mobile phones and devices. Users can browse and discover a broad set of Web content and applications not supported by mobile phones in the past. People can also view YouTube videos using Flash technology, and enable full screen viewing mode by simply double tapping the screen.
"Adobe Flash is an important core technology for people interacting and experiencing the Web, it is only natural to be offering it on the new HTC Hero first," said John Wang, chief marketing officer, HTC Corporation. "We look forward to continuing our close collaboration with Adobe and to bringing Flash Player 10 support to our phones in the future." Read More"

and people say I should get an iPhone, there's a couple of reasons NOT to.
android followed closely by symbian OS is the most open there is.
carriers regularly block GPS capability on windows mobile phones.
that's carrier specific, like Verizon. You can use everything in AT&T so I don't have a problem either with creating apps.
I have SSH enabled on my server, nothing has gotten by according to my log files.
people on a LAN would still sign in to AOL and open the web from there.
AOL gave millions of people the wrong impression.
So I would agree with "The Hard Drive" being the entire box comment being really annoying.
If you like to work with the innards of computer and test things, than Linux is for you. If not, than get a PC, if you just use a PC than waste your money on a MAC.
Is the Economy. It's 100% player driver. The only thing that the developers add is a sink hole for the Initial blue prints for equipment. Everything else is player aquired / sold. If there were additional shards, than there would be no need to fight for systems. Which is why World of Warcraft is just a 3D social playground for developing characters rather than aquiring and fighting for your goals which you achieve in EVE online.
Face it, people don't like EVE because it's too intense and feel that there is a lackluster in the PVP fighting. If they take their time, the fighting is more drawn out than any other MMO and that character development is your choice not a 70 hour hack-n-slash to gain levels.
Skills allow you to use items, and money allows you to buy them. Everything else is community based.
OH and it's one of the only games where you CAN be a trader and NEVER have to fight to gain levels.
