You call that a car? wake me up when they achieve that while driving a converted humvee...
Who cares if the russians supplied the missles to down the aircraft.. It's about who actually shot down the plane.. It's not like the US hasn't supplied "terrorists" (oh I mean rebels) with weaponry that killed A LOT of innocent people, it's not like other countries have supplied weapons to groups who used them..
And it all looks like a big tragic mistake as the plane was 'just' mistaken for a transportcarrier..
yeah, it's trivial.. As an european I can imagine something like that even though I'm quite opposed to it. But if the warant wouldn't be valid, all US companies would store their information abroad and nothing can be searched..
But I can imagine a way around this problem.. For instance, just let an irish person setup a blank corporation which 'owns' the serverpark and rents the servers back to Microsoft. This way the servers aren't owned by the US company and therefore cannot fall under the warrant..
well at least nog to 99% of the people.. Most people can't hear the better sound anyway, they have 'crap' headphones (and no, those $200+ headphones don't make it any better).
For most people even the integrated soundcard itself really isn't the problem, but the speakers/receivers they use..
And soundquality is still in the eye of the beholder, some people like high pitched sounds better than low frequency or full bass.. it's all a personal taste..
Only real audiophiles will likely notice anything from a dedicated soundcard, but then again, there still is quite some difference between the integrated soundcards on motherboards..
