Unfortunately, so are the libel laws... interesting that TakeTwo specifically went after trademark and not libel (especially in the UK!), isn't it?
Depends... TakeTwo may have trademarks registered in the UK.
Thing is, if the film were an actual documentary instead of a dramatic play, one could easily claim "because journalism!" and then tell TakeTwo's lawyers to go pound sand.
Yeah... thinking the same thing. Without some sort of participation or backing from established researchers and vendors, this was pretty much a non-starter.
It was aliens, they were here first.
No, no, don't get too excited: It was just a copy of Visual Basic 0.99 that some hominid left lying around.
That's a good rule of thumb for Windows and Linux. Not sure about Apple
On the Apple side, the rule seems to be an iOS-only thing (and even then only recently... thanks iOS 8!)
On the OSX side? 10.0 sucked pretty hard, and (IIRC) 10.2 had some problems, but it's been rather rock-stable since then (at least from my POV - I've used OSX from the ill-fated 10.0 all the way up to Yosemite, but YMMV).
I wish we were losing because that would mean anthropogenic global warming was not going to be a problem.
...in that case, rejoice!
(not holding my breath...)
The distances are irrelevant truth be told, as long as the first and last legs of the trip are equal.
Ice is a legitimate part of the a surface of the Earth and the math works out.
How is that failure?
To be fair, Ice *is* a surface.
The answer is indeed the North Pole, and that brain teaser has been around for what, eons now?
I think I'd quickly answer it, then ask him one that I made up and tested long before that final interview.
What does Richard Stallman think about GTA 5?
As soon as he finishes the mod that turns all the prostitutes and cops with effigies of Bill Gates, we'll find out.
Dude - I thought that was the primary reason for going to a LAN party back in the day...
You do know the internet started as a government funded initiative right?
If anything, the powerful interests are losing control... not gaining it.
I disagree, and one need look no further than Facebook. Most of the political distraction/messaging being passed around positively reeks of being astroturfed by competing mega-interests. Also, consider that the proletariat is too easily distracted, ignorant, and tribal, so getting them to ask the wrong questions means you never have to worry about the answers.
The control is still there and stronger than ever - just that they're now using new methods to do it.
I also find it interesting that they discount the growth of Pandora, Spotify, etc... and the fact that you can more easily pass around music via a digital version of sneakernet these days (long ago it was blank cassettes and hanging out at a buddy's house. Now it's "what's your dropbox addy? I can snag 'em that way." Then again, I know for fact that for quite awhile the smarter kids --and not just a few adults-- were passing around USB hard drives / geek-sticks full of music to each other as well...)
If the payroll increases 30% while sales remain flat, either someone is saving money(hard to do for minimum wagers) or you have inflation.
This is of course assuming that debt isn't being paid off at a slightly faster rate, savings aren't being accumulated in a rainy-day fund, college savings account or 401k, etc. Oh, and the businesses that raise costs in order to compensate for higher wages will probably hoover up the rest.
End state? little-to-no improvement, and everything remains more or less status quo... just with a bit of inflation kicked-in.
