Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
The actual problem is more that they seated him, on the plane, despite knowing that he had paid for 2 seats and that there was only one seat available.
SW shouldn't have put him on the plane - that's even what Kevin Smith says. However, having put him on, having the pilot come and throw him off is ridiculous.
If it normally comes with the platform in question, then yes. So if you're compiling for Windows, you're allowed to link in Windows SDKs. If you're compiling for iPhone, you're allowed to link in iPhone SDKs.
If you're just making the changes for yourself, you can self-sign and deploy on your own iPhone. It's only distribution to others that mean you have to pay Apple. And you can avoid doing that if you're happy to distribute to just jail-break phones.
You can put up essentially the same app, as long as it is obvious it is a different app. Which means you're fighting trademark law, not copyright.
Change the icon, change the name, change the publisher name, and change the about us page, and you've done enough.
Think FireFox vs IceWeasel.
Furthermore - if someone takes your GPL'd app (which, presumably, you own the registered trademark for?) and puts it up on the AppStore, Apple will enforce your trademark and kick them off once you bring it to their attention.
If you don't own your trademark, then you have to do the above changes, _register_ the trademark, and then resubmit.
It would have been nice to see something more done with the whole Aldor vs Scryers issue. Here was another faction option that was orthogonal to the main - there could have been a form of contests between them.
Not battlegrounds (that would be at odds with the "we're allies" aspect) but how about some sort of team sport? Ostensibly non-lethal. This would have allowed Orcs and Humans to compete together against the Blood and Night Elves.
It's an easy statement to explain. GP said Blizzard was only about making money. Parent post said "No, there's also people who care about making great games". Because the GP left out this extra motivation, their post reflected "a fundamentally incomplete view of reality". It was incomplete because there were bits missing
Actually, that is not the case. Government officials in particular have a greater duty to protect your privacy than the average citizen, due to their access to greater-than-normal tools to violate it.
If, for example, Rep. Doogan abused his office to discover Mudflat's identity, then that would be a serious problem.
I'm actually impressed that in 1979, the ISDN lines stopped 2 blocks from your parent's house.
2 block and 9 years, that is - ISDN wasn't codified as a standard until 1988, with the early recommendations out in 1984.
This is exactly how people used to write. The use of a punctuation marker between words didn't catch on in Latin until sometime between 600AD and 800AD. A lot of punctuation marks, and grammar in general, is a relatively recent fad.
Having your bank's own bank accounts frozen by a foreign power (the main reason Iceland's collapsing so fast) probably does count as "completely unexpected"...
At about 100 miles by 80 miles, it's a little big for a city where people walk as their primary transport (about 12% bigger than New York).
So - definitive proof that Atlanteans had hovercrafts.
Most of the heavily automated factories in China are set up by the Chinese themselves.
Individual companies and groups in China recognise that the labour differential won't stay in place forever, and they don't want to see themselves either trapped in low-pay environments or see a flood of customers going elsewhere to even cheaper places. So they are bootstrapping themselves up now.
The interesting part is that they are bootstrapping up while still being cost competitive - proof that the sweatshop model is unnecessary.
(All that said, we have to remember that sweatshop workers actually prefer the sweatshop to the alternatives that they have. That alone is enough to make me shudder)
