"a theory at best".... A theory is something testable that has withstood the tests subjected to it (contrast that with a hypothesis, which may not be yet tested). The word you and other "let's legitimize the scientific method" people are looking for is a "hunch". Global warming is not a "hunch".

"Well, none of that applies to Apple's other devices (apart from apps for the iOS devices), where you can watch whatever content you like, and they cost far less than twice their competitor's price as you suggest. But haters gonna hate...."
Only on slashdot would this be modded a troll. while its parent is "insightful".

Amazing. What the fuck do you guys want Obama to do? When he tries something that is inevitably going to fail b/c of the Republicans, you fault him for trying. When his administration points out the realities of the patent system, you fault his administration for not acting where they cannot act. I doubt there is anything Obama could do to appease you.
