They also have the most to lose. If they couldn't enforce their patents, someone could start selling (or giving away) copies of Microsoft products, only having to rebrand them to avoid trademark issues. Knock offs could be exact replicas of Microsoft software. People could steal everything Microsoft (or any other company) develops.
Cut off a patch of skin. Yeah, that'll stop the bleeding!
The day search engines become public is the day that they stop improving. I'm not saying there couldn't be a public search engine, but nobody would use it because Google (and bing, ect.) would be so much better.
It's probably covered by trademark law, or something of the sort.
...and by doing so, they are making the book popular. Te publisher will just print more, and everyone's gonna want to read it because it's the book the Pentagon tried to hide. It'll also be on best sellers lists because they are buying 10,000 of them.
What southwest is saying is that it's not THEIR fault that the control tower broke, so don't sue them. Instead sue the people responsible: the airport.
I really don't find this all that surprising, diamonds aren't even that rare on earth. The only reason they are so expensive is because diamond companies buy them all up and only put very few on the market. However, I have to admit, an iceberg of diamonds would look pretty darn awesome!
It could create a false sense of security by telling people to switch, and Microsoft is patching the problem. But aren't there TONS of other reason why to abandon IE.
theodp writes "It's the not-too-distant future. They've turned off the Internet. After the riots have settled down and the withdrawal symptoms have faded, how would you cope? Cracked.com asked readers to Photoshop what life would be like in an Internet-addicted society learning to cope without it. Better hope it never happens, or be prepared for dry-erase message boards, carrier pigeon-powered Twitter, block-long lines to get into adult video shops, door-to-door Rickrolling, Lolcats on Broadway, and $199.99 CDs."
To be clear, I am thinking very negatively here ^ and this probably won't happen. The firefighters are super prepared, so there would have to be some uber winds to make this happen. And from what I can tell, the winds aren't that strong. But it is in the realm of possibility.
From what I've heard, the firefighters have been preparing for quite some time making fire breaks and other preparations. There are also a lot of firefighters there, as it is a top priority. The only way that I can see it going down is if the winds pick up. If they got going fast enough, the wind would blow super hot embers over the fire breaks and over run the firefighters. Strong winds have been known to throw embers well over a mile, so if they did pick up, it wouldn't be that hard for one to land on the observatory.
Tell your boss how you feel and if he agrees with you maybe he will figure out some other way to reimburse you, like for example a nice little bonus.

You can sue for anything, it doesn't mean that you will win.
