From the way you describe it, it's at least 80 years too long, and the one time rule seems capricious. Patents are only 20 years and the sky hasn't fallen.
The big boys are repackaging and reselling our culture like they own it. They don't, and I see nothing morally wrong with people personally sharing meaningful culture that they care about.
Fits all my pockets, and I use mine with VoIP. People are awed by the size of my "phone". Still heartbroken that there won't be a 2015 version. For the price, the 2013 LTE version was the best piece of electronics I've ever owned. I know there are nicer Android tabs now, but not for the price.
It can, when comparing like things. However, one of these is not like the other. At grid scale, it has to compete against the wholesale price of electricity. At residential scale, even though it is smaller and less efficient, it competes against the RETAIL price of electricity. This difference suggests a different source of the problem.
I'm a content creator too, with significant copyrighted works. I've even used copyright threats to ensure I've been adequately paid. I also think Copyright is utterly absurd as it is. 5-10 years ought to be the max. The establishment has shown severe disrespect to the public by locking down culture indefinitely behind a paywall. It might be "stealing" in your eyes, or the law's... Ethically, it's sharing, with the same good intentions of every public library. I hope one day copyright catches up to morality. Our culture is owned by all of us.
Since Google sells these directly, they also have the purchase and delivery dates and device id's for most Nexus devices. Perhaps the delay is designed to roll out the update shortly after the warranty expires? They could easily do that... would they? It would save them a hell of a lot of support dollars.
You're trapped in a slow motion death spiral of a two party system slowly eroding your constitution. Maybe not failed yet, but most people have noticed the decline.
The fact that you speak this way with impunity shows how free you are. For most of Russian history, those kinds of opinions would mean a knock at the door at midnight, and that would be the last anyone would ever see you.
As a Canadian who is very grateful to Snowden for starting this huge debate that wouldn't exist otherwise, I hope he gets retired someplace much more comfortable and safe, such as Cuba.
As a Canadian, I was recently pulled over to the side of a highway by an officer on foot. The officer asked to see my driver's licence, made sure everyone was wearing their seat belts, and sent us on our way. Should I be concerned?
Xeroxing has become a seriously anachronistic term. Believe it or not, the target audience does know words like "duplicate" or "copy", but younger generations exposure to the "Xerox" company is very limited. Let that word die please.
Pathetic? Let's see how well you can deal when you lack some extremely obscure knowledge, and live in a world with no Internet. Security through obscurity used to work damn well in the past, which is why so many people still think they can rely on it.
Thanks, it's the worst pain a person can feel. I'm doing OK. I know what I'm giving up when using Facebook and I'm cool with that. There are classy, respectable ways to use peoples data, and I'm glad society is having this conversation on the finer points of net etiquette.
I lost my three year old daughter early this year, and I certainly understand how this person feels. I've been avoiding looking at my Facebook photo albums as well. I think it's a kind gesture from Facebook to acknowledge that their user base contains people in every situation imaginable, and for many, a photo retrospective is inappropriate. The only person who should be curating personal photos in Facebook is the profile owner.
If the service is free, that means that someone else is the customer.
