I expect big things, Blackberry have been world leaders in self destruction for the past eight years.

Musk offered this amusing example: '... This happened after the vehicle impacted a roundabout at 110 mph, shearing off 15 feet of concrete curbwall and tearing off the left front wheel, then smashing through an eight foot tall buttressed concrete wall on the other side of the road and tearing off the right front wheel, before crashing into a tree.
this is already true for every Paypal or credit card purchase you've ever made too
It's not true (and shouldn't be true) for digital purchases. Apple doesn't provide developers with any personal customer information for app purchases. Valve doesn't for Steam purchases. Amazon doesn't for digital software purchases. Microsoft doesn't for app or Xbox purchases.
Google is unique in this regard and not in a good way.

There goes my irony quota for the day.

I think a lot of the tech geeks and early adopters have already moved on; with or without the entertainment industry.
Duck face detected. Please retake photo.
That should solve the mystery of why Wikileaks "went back" to EasyDNS for hosting. Shame that people didn't dig a little deeper when that seemed weird.
He thinks there's no real issue here.
As a major VLC developer, I have to say that the FSF is pushing bad faith and FUD.
a photography app that was rejected because it used the volume buttons as trigger
It's a volume button. I don't have a problem with Apple with rejecting an app that subverts the defined usage of a hardware button. I haven't used (or heard of) this app, but what does it do if you try to change the volume of your music or phone call when also trying to take a picture?
