Should Computers Be Disposable? No and especially not macs. If they never broke or were "future-proof" it wouldn't make much difference but despite the advertising to the contrary they simply aren't THAT good.
It's a pity their sister agency took down MegaUpload. It would have been perfect for this.
Who Cares If Samsung Copied Apple? I don't think anyone really cares about this except corporations and lawyers.
We refuse to be appeased under any circumstances. We will stand aloof and BitTorrent must grovel.
As if there isn't enough carnage on the highways by people who can't seem to navigate 2 dimensional space. If they were being flown by computers that don't make errors then maybe but if it's by the ordinary fallible people then no.
jrepin writes "Awareness has been spreading among individuals, businesses and other organizations that DRM is a completely unnecessary restriction of freedom, and it drives people away. As that awareness spreads, going "DRM-Free" becomes more and more valuable for patrons. To really build upon that image and to provide a resource for people to learn about why being DRM-Free matters, a logo was created for suppliers to proudly advertise that their files all come unencumbered by restrictive technologies. Some among early adopters are O'Reilly Media, ClearBits, Momentum Books, and ccMixter."

I work for a company that still uses XP and has no plans to upgrade until, I suppose, the 2014 date. Our IT vendor does all the upgrading and is, apparently, in no rush to upgrade us. It's a lot less work for them presumably.
I am outraged or something like that.
This is interesting and just points to how we're not suited, naturally, to space.
Well I'm not getting one just to find out if the conjecture is true. I don't care one way or the other.
Is this just for those in government contracted positions? Otherwise what is the US gov't interfering in this for? Who is being protected by this legislation who actually needs protection? This is bizarre.
Just say no to idiocy. I hope their "proposal" is rejected as the bad idea that it is. Mind you, it just encourages me and everyone else to dump this monopoly in favour of other ones that are less obnoxious. I.e. other domain registries e.g. country codes or
.org or whatever.
Curious. Surely he doesn't have a passport from Canada still? That would just be silly. Does he vote? I hope he does but not in Canadian elections. He doesn't live in Canada and hasn't for 50 years. He has spent all of his life, essentially, in the USA. I'd say that makes him an American or perhaps a Canadian-American. I guess my question for Mr. Shatner would be, "Are you a Canadian actor? And, if so, explain the rationale for that designation."
Actually wikipedia won't be censoring anything.If the idea passes in the vote wikipedia will just supply code so that individuals who visit the site can censor things for themselves via settings.
