France Bans Facebook and Twitter From Radio and TV News
The fact is that Wikipedia has a super high resolution print quality and SVG image of the seal which could be used to manufacture fake credentials. This fact might explain why they are going after Wikipedia and not other places.
Maybe, but Britannica has a pretty high resolution version too...
Not quite, with the free support they didn't fix the issue - they took a year to tell him he'd broken the Terms of Service, and then no reply as to why. Even then, when trialling the paid-for support, they still managed to bill him when they shouldn't have.
As for not being news-worthy, how else can people highlight these kinds of issues?!
I'm just surprised how, after all his issues, the length of time with no response, and being billed in error, he still ends with:
Thank you Google! I never lost trust in you.
It might not work especially well with a mouse - but it works very well with a remote control.
Connect a remote control, and a large monitor/HDTV, and it's one of the best media centre interfaces out there.
What bothers me is the possibility that content is cut from the game specifically to sell, rather than being developed in addition to the game. It's important to bear in mind though that extra content can still be developed before the game is totally finished, programmers don't create most of the game content.
The fact that its on the game disk is irrelevant though. For example, when I buy Windows 7 Home Premium, that disk also contains Windows 7 Ultimate. I'm not given a key to unlock Ultimate, but I can buy a key from Microsoft to upgrade to it if I want to.
That's quite a flawed conclusion to come to. Sure, each individual inaccuracy may be corrected in a reasonable time. But you're completely ignoring that other inaccuracies may be added during that same time period.
You say Wikipedia is "more reliable than an average printed manual or guidebook where any mistakes couldn't have been corrected since I bought it" - a printed manual or guidebook doesn't have any extra mistakes added to it either, but Wikipedia certainly might have.
The article says that Apple dominates over a certain price point. That's exactly what I said.
I didn't say that some Mac's shouldn't be considered premium, I was merely correcting the article title.
Apple dominates the premium priced market, not the premium PC market.
From the article you linked to:
"In Europe, the full version will be priced as if it were an upgrade version." - where's the increased price you mention?!
What's the matter? Just get out of sword fighting class?
If you're worried about losing work, I think your backup solution is what you need to improve instead.
If you run 'winver', the Windows 7 beta reports an expiry date of 1st July.
