You are right on. Tech is about innovation, not litigation.
The moral is simple, run like hell, don't look back because something might be gaining on you, and above all, don't stop to hire mercenaries to fight for you and then relax while a bunch of hired guns save your village with Elmer Bernstein's music in the background.
P.S. Nice "moral". If I had mod points, I would be scoring you as 'funny'.
Is it worth taking civilian deaths on our side, through terrorism, to avoid civilians deaths on the other side?
Civilians, by nature should be valued as equally as possible. Obviously, a state's military has a duty to their own citizens, but I think we should find a way to avoid civilian deaths on each side. It is not their fight. Their children didn't ask for this. As decent human beings, it is our duty to prevent harm to civilians on either side.

As often as we need. We push based on features. Although we sometimes slip into batching up production moves. I find it is much easier to push often when you work with people that are unafraid of branching based on feature requests.
I'm just glad we don't do the "quarterly push" like some do. It sure saves us a lot of troubleshooting in the chance that the push introduces a production error.
If you are not smart enough to install non-market Android apps, you have no problem.
If you are smart enough to install non-market Android apps, you know what you are getting into.
With great power comes great responsibility. I think these pieces keep surfacing because the Anti-Virus companies desperately need to get into this market. They see it is the future and they want a piece of it.
I'm 35 and had been doing mostly C++ work for my career. I recently went back out to look for a new job, and finding mostly Java stuff, I got the Android SDK and wrote a few Android apps to hone those Java skills. Now I've got a new job doing Java stuff and learning a skillset that I think will be in demand for a while yet.
You did exactly the right thing. Pick up a fun, trendy, and easy to start language. The Android SDK is easy to pick up and can really teach you how to write good Java code.
I do the whole Enterprise Java, Spring, etc. job by day, but learn way more when programming in my free time on Android, PHP, etc. It gives me a fulfilled feeling and gives me the skills to advance my programming career far more than relying on my employer to provide training opportunities.
This is obviously viral marketing for Ocean's Fourteen.
Exactly what I was thinking. Sounds like an Ocean's plot. If they simplify the plot a little, it could be a stunt for Fast and Furious 6 as well... Attach two Dodge Chargers to spaceship and drive through LA like mad.
