This court also has a history of being skeptical of the scope of patent protection, having dealt several anti-patent rulings in the last few years. Of course, all of that means nothing, since past performance is no guarantee of future results. They could just as easily reverse the trend this time. What is important is to fund out which side has hired Paul Clement, since the conservative justices love him and pretty much do whatever he wants, most of the time.
They acknowledged that the problem existed (9 months ago) and promised a solution in the future.
And yeah, it's coincidence that future date shows up just a few days after the story starts to spread in the media. And oddly enough... the CEO seemed unaware that problem existed and needed fixing (from his own tweet "Doesn't sound right. If it is, we certainly need to fix it. Investigating...").
So, here's the facts jackass; The problem was known, but went unacknowledged, and when it was finally acknowledged, it went unfixed for a considerable time (after the patch that supposed to fix it) until the CEO learned the media was on the scent.
So piss the hell off back your drug addled dreamworld fanboi. You have no fucking clue what you're talking about and no real interest in any facts.
However, not once have I seen the complaints backed up with facts, examples, or otherwise, just negativity without any indication as to why.
The blindest are those willingly so - those who chose not to see.
Could someone please explaint to me why there is this hate on Elon Musk, and what it is about?
Take SpaceX for example - where the fanbois refuse to acknowledge the problems the Falcon 9 has experienced and who also treat the Falcon Heavy as if it were a proven craft rather than vaporware. Or take this story... where the blunt facts of the matter are this - the problem has existed for quite a while and was ignored by Tesla and Musk. Until it started getting media attention.
Facts aren't hate - except to the fanbois.
If this has to be explained to you... well, then you're either among the fanbois or terminally clueless as to the world around you.
Tesla is trying to get itself a foothold in the market and Elon feels personally responsible if there's a defective product that has reached the attention of the media because it reflects badly upon the company.
Elon Musk is a master at manipulating the media and the fanbois.
2. China & India, you really need to step up your game.
It's not quite as big a boost to national prestige when hobbyist makers are getting their stuff launched.
I'm trying to parse your meaning here... Are you seriously suggesting that because amateurs are now able to do what the professionals were doing sixty plus years ago... China and India (who are doing stuff far more advanced than the amateurs) are falling behind? That's like claiming Boeing and Airbus need to be worried because someone has built a four engined RC aircraft - absolutely ludicrous.
If SpaceX starts providing unused space for hobby payloads to fly standby, every school science project could get launched.
I can't figure out whether you vastly overestimate the number of SpaceX launches and the spare payload available, or if you underestimate the number of potential school science projects (in the US) by multiple orders of magnitude. Either way, you're way, way off base.
One of the main concerns was the small size and the ability to easy install and replace avionics. This led to the decision that all external side panels will have to accommodate being taken on and off - no welding, only on the main structure.
This is a technique known to aerospace engineers for fifty odd years.
The timing of it's original discovery and implementation had a unexpected impact on space history though... NASA first encountered the same problems with Mercury - not so much because it's size, but because all the systems were packed inside one on top of each other with no provision for access. This caused many problems during assembly and launch preps as often connections had to be broken and unrelated equipment removed to get at a part that needed replacement, repair, or adjustment. So, when NASA and McDonnell (they hadn't yet merged with Douglas) were evolving the design into the Mercury MKII and eventually Gemini, they re-arranged things. They shrunk the pressure vessel a bit, enlarged the structural shell a bit, and packed as many systems as possible into the space between and behind access doors.
But Apollo's design was already largely frozen - it retained the Mercury type design of having almost everything packed into the pressure vessel. (Yes, the design sequence goes Mercury-Apollo-Gemini, out of order from the flight order.) The result was that it was extremely difficult to work inside the Apollo capsule, to track work accomplished, and easy to damage adjacent systems and equipment - damage that was later believed to have been the source of ignition for Apollo 1.
The article is FUD. Why? Because there is still demand for this service.
There's still a demand for print magazines and dead tree newspapers - yet they're shrinking and dwindling and failing left and right. There's a demand for sheet and roll film - yet Kodak and it's competitors are mostly either out of the market or bankrupt.
Just because there is demand, that doesn't mean it's economically viable to serve it.
Recently, one of the biggest changes in mainstream music was that the big labels stopped signing bands and started building bands. This difference doesn't sound big, but it means that instead of having an album from a group that has its own sound, stage presence, and lyrics, it means one is getting a singer who is especially chosen because he/she can follow orders, lyrics specifically chosen to appeal to a certain market segment by the MBA types, and then form a band around that.
This has been going on for decades - there's a reason why The Monkees were known as the "Prefab Four".
There is a way to "self censor" the app, which is to download it, mark it 1 star and give a crappy review. Enough people do that, and the app fades into obscurity. Crappy apps should be named and shamed this way.
Wealth becomes decentralized, not the cartels. The cartels held centralized wealth. And I meant viability, mega super star acts are going to be increasingly rare, as good or even great groups compete for loyal fans.
I can see Nickelback for $100 or see two local bands that are equal or better for $50, guess which one I'm gonna pick?
The big problem used to be the media companies paying the radio stations to play their artists music...
Sorry, Stupid seems more like Black Holes rather than anything based on the speed of light. With stupid, you send information in, and nothing much of value escapes; a black hole.
Indeed, why do you need an APP for this. My ROM (CM 10.2) has a "torch" function built in. Why would you need an app for it?
This is not an Android problem this is a problem with crappy carrier priorities. Must bundle crap nobody wants, and not include the obvious highly requested features.
This is just the beginning of the end for the corporate music industry. This has been going since the Napster days, and is just jumping from format to format. There is no profit left in corporate music (Labels). The number of good music acts is increasing as the wealth that was centralized by Labels becomes decentralized. Will there still be megabands and huge starts? Of course. However, the number of quality musical artists, who are able to reach a much wider audience, will spread out the available dollars to a broader selection of talent.
The real money will be made playing music live for fans to enjoy. Here's to hoping for the death of the "boy bands" and talentless whores who take off their clothes and call it a musical act.
Obviously you've never spent time with a pregnant woman who knows there is another "being" inside her, separate and distinct from her.
And my arms and legs are not harmed by drinking alcohol till I am in drunken stupor, something that would harm the "baby", which is why we have all sorts of warning labels on things saying "do not take while pregnant". You're the one playing games trying to dehumanize a being.
