Hi, welcome to
The Librarian of Congress doesn't answer to the President.
The decision was made by the Library of Congress [emphasis mine]
Is the "they" you're referring to Congress? Because *they* haven't said anything about reversing this.
No, grandstanding is going for the easy applause when you know there is absolutely no political price to be paid for doing do (and no chance that it will matter).
Obama knows that such a ban stands no chance of getting through Congress (the big telecommunications companies bought and paid for them long ago). He's just politically grandstanding on a popular issue. Nothing will actually come of it, and he knows it.
With Super-Duper Ultra-Retina(tm) display technology?
I'll wait for the iPIP 2, which is rumored to have inventory cataloging too.
Yeah, but most of that comes from one sale of the $15 billion "Rolex God" to a Saudi prince.
Aside from the fact that the Apple logo alone will have people lined up outside of Apple stores across the country to buy this thin, I'm inclined to ask what this watch actually DOES (aside from the obvious "tells time").
The screen is going to be way too small to type on. And if Apple claims that Siri won't run on even older iPhones, it seems unlikely that it's going to run on this watch. So that leaves only the simplest of input options.
And the screen is going to be crazy small for much output, not that it will have much CPU or memory to do much anyway (unless the form factor is HUGE).
The only thing I can figure is that this is going to be a blutooth front-end for an iPhone, but in that case, having a full iOS install seems like overkill.
Has anyone actually seen a working prototype of this thing in action, who could maybe clue us in?
Hate to break it to you, but most downloads on Steam are going to ask you to pay for them too.
So much more funny when you read that as "You can lead a mormon to knowledge, but you can't make him learn."
Next time you see a tree, I hope you realize that all the carbon in it came from the CO2 in the air.
Is that what Exxon told you?
Clearly, you are in the pocket of big oil. Keep drinking their Kool-Aid.
