Joining in the fun stories to support the claim, our local transit police used a cardboard officer to deter bike theft: http://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/editorials/2013/08/14/cardboard-cop-prompts-real-drop-crime/twoZrFoyg1qrPQCVLtnF8K/story.html
And was released over a year before Office for Windows.
From the guy who chose to base Safari of KHTML: "But I chose the engine we used — with my team’s and my management chain’s support, of course —"
Sounds like an engineering-led decision to me.
And I'll say fuck you to the parasites and find my sources of entertainment, news, and community elsewhere. I'd be perfectly happy if all ad supported websites went out of business (I'm not counting those that have ads for their own products though, just those with ads from external sources).
Just out of curiosity, I'd like to point out that all search engines are ad supported. And, for that matter, Slashdot. You don't want to be able to use Google or Bing (and by extension, pretty much any other search like DuckDuckGo), or do you have some other business model to propose?

At some point you have to trust someone. You can't eliminate all third parties and yourself. If you don't trust Yahoo or Google or any other OpenID provider to be paranoid on your behalf, you're going to have to trust yourself. Or not logging into things could also work.
Hmm, the first product of Applesoft could be a BASIC Interpreter!

Let's say I want to buy a copy of Windows, because it doesn't come with my Mac. I'm not even going to splurge for Ultimate, and settle for Windows 7 Home Premium. Newegg has it for "$189.99 was: $199.99". Yes, you can get OEM versions for half that, but saying $200 for a Windows license is certainly not out of thin air.
Where you went wrong: you assumed our drones use encryption
DRM isn't implemented in Silverlight (for obvious reasons), so it can't play Netflix. About all I've ever seen in Moonlight is a notice to update my version of Silverlight.
Moonlight works (but only as a Firefox plugin?). However, DRM isn't / can't be implemented, so it's useless for Silverlight's main use (aka, Netflix).
If I ever become a billionaire, I'm going to hire a blimp with "PROPOSITION 65 WARNING: THE SUN IS KNOWN TO THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA TO CAUSE CANCER" to float up and down the state. Stupid proposition system.
You would be incorrect, and 0.02% of Gmail users are very glad. http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2011/02/28/google-goes-to-the-tape-to-get-lost-emails-back/
No, the scammers convinced the victim's phone company to transfer the number to a different account. Meaning they then had control of the second factor.
