OEM, sure. But it's not my understanding that if you buy a PC and buy the full, expensive version of windows and the PC dies and you buy a new pc then you need to buy another copy of windows. Otherwise....why would anyone pay for the full version; you'd get the oem, right?
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).
We're not talking about rumours here, though.
You know nothing about computers. Why are you even on this site?
So can an app.
Not really, i'm talking about chickens. Must have used a trigger word or something.
" how the hens are kept that produce your eggs"
Er... What's wrong with ethical farming? It would be nice to think that you'd not need laws for that sort of thing, but apparently some countries need laws to stop people from discriminating against people with different colour skin so you can't leave everything to the marketplace.
Yes yes yes. But they also invent cures and treatments for diseases which blight or end the lives of billions of people (over time). Put down the Russell Brand dvd and signed t-shirt for a moment, and think about who exactly would produce a cure for HIV, cancer etc if everyone can just make copies of compounds the drugs companies produced (at no small cost). Let me guess - you're going to crowdsource it on kickstarter?
Need to learn to read,dude. Second sentence.
Very few things are "worth" what they cost. I mean, sure, on one level things are worth exactly what they cost. But on another level there's the cost of the raw materials and the labour required to assemble them, and the factory and its running costs etc. Do you include marketing? Shipping? R&D which is required up front but not to manufacture. A $600 smartphone costs $100 or so to build, and less after a while. What's it worth - $100 or $600? Is it "better" than a $100 smartphone? A smartwatch can keep time more accurately than a more expensive watch by simply correcting for any mistakes once a day. But when people spend any more than $100 on a watch it's not because they're after the accuracy.A lot of rather sad people are going to buy the Apple watch because they think they're in with a chance to be as cool as they think the people who got the first iPhones were. And the sort of people who spend $100,000 on a watch certainly aren't going to get one; not even the tasteless gold one (although i'm sure it'll go down a storm in the middle east and asia).
No compromises, though. Can't decide whether to get a laptop or a tablet? Get a Microsoft Surface. It's the size and weight of a laptop, with a poor battery life, balanced out by a full size keyboard...but you can lug it around and use the touch screen - on the apps which support it - just like you would if you were using one of the more popular tablets from Apple or Android.

It's not hurting their chances that 12 civilians were murdered by religious fanatics, in an environment where there are many members of the same religion who surfed up in the '50s to work in factories which are long since closed, leading to high unemployment, and that as many as one in four of them believe that terrorism against civilians is justified. The french National Front are racist, but they aren't nazis.
Are you sure the correct answer is "it's generally not possible to represent numbers accurately using that format"? Where "accurately" means "the correct answer". If you counted the number of digits it would so you could say "oh, and this many digits i'm going to set to zero". Sometimes you want a jpeg, and sometimes you want a RAW file.
So write the answer to this problem using that notation.
