You missed the "I got an Android phone, so I've got a G+ account now..." people in this list- which are liable to comprise most of that 390 Million 'subscribers' they're claiming.
Here's a hint: If it's a Chrome extension, you're still running it when you "leave" it and Hangout's still up.
Either that or sign up on jabber.org and use the core protocol like a boss...
The biggest problem's more that you'd have to make X86 versions and flag for them in the Play store- which is beyond a pain in the *ss.
There might be some other solutions there, but what you're talking to...that's pretty much a non-starter right at the moment. NDK support's one of the reasons Intel's had "issues" getting Atom into the space over ARM based solutions.
Heh... If that were solely the case, you wouldn't have "gapps" for CyanogenMod and the other custom ROMs for Android devices...
Google Play's in the gapps pack.
Heh...they also run WAAAAAY hotter than any ARM SOCs. That "much more powerful" comes at a price right at the moment. And the gaps shrinking rapidly. Intel can't make it lower power faster than ARM can pick up speed and keep the power low.
If that were so, they'd have already handled that support in Android-X86 and it'd be a desktop solution on Linux platforms.
It is nothing of the sort- so try again. (Hint: Your assessment of being able to emulate the highest-end ARM is quite WRONG...just to start with...)
This is part of the reason that "strong" passwords are actually as weak or weaker than "weak" ones. If you have to aggregate them into a "manager", something similar, or write it down on a post-it/piece of other paper it's NOT "strong" in the slightest.
We'd be better off having passphrases that would be difficult to brute-force, but easy to remember for humans.
Depends on if he's got enough case to attract an attorney on Contingency. Not all lawyers work on up-front fees and the like.
Hope your neighbors aren't planting Monsanto or other Patented company's stuff...then you'll be having fun due to cross-pollenization.
If any of his neighbors use Monsanto or other "patented" seeds, they have the risk of cross-pollination from the neighboring farms and they're STILL screwed since Monsanto's sued and won on that subject in the past.
It's more difficult than one would think.
There's ways around it. Working on some of them right now. They still sell and have available Heirloom seeds for most crops. You can't cross-pollinate hydroponically grown stuff.
Actually, if the plants cross-pollinate (i.e. Their damned plants contaminate my Heirloom seed planted crops via pollen...) they have sued and won over that specific and particular circumstance.
It's a bigger picture than this- and I'm a bit shocked that the Supreme Court gave Monsanto this one.
That'd be my take. It's not free- it's just that the users didn't have to pay for it's use. If they're not going to make money off of it (If they were actually "monetizing" this as some have claimed...they'd not have pulled the plug, folks...) then it doesn't make sense to keep it going. They are, after all, a business.
Not as many as there've been cars sold...
