Is there a standthrough for this available?
There's only one way to interpret "every" as far as I know. Sorry for wanting more accuracy in the articles I read.
Raspberry Pi comes with no operating system. There are a number of Linux builds, including the recommended Debian build, which could be made to include the free Raspberry Pi version of the Wolfram Language and Mathmatica. To claim "every Raspberry Pi" is a bit hyperbolic.
The Streisand Effect is not a rule. It's a rarity. For every story that gets attention this way, there are millions that do not.
When I see a post on Slashdot about censorship backfiring, without fail, someone will blurt out "Streisand Effect" as if it is an inevitable thing that happens when censorship occurs on the Internet.
The trouble here is that assuming this is a rule and not a rare edge case brings with it the danger of promoting the idea that censorship is not able to occur on the Internet.
I'm glad when the effect occurs, but don't kid yourself.
They're fizzling and they know it. I have not interacted with them in about 8 years. This year, I started getting emails from them about my "projects", which were also abandoned years ago. It smelled like a last ditch effort to bring people back to the site. They're just not that relevant anymore.
It very much has to be pointed out. Because, to be fair.. that's how stabbing works. You point it out.
" If you don't like it don't buy it. Enough with the stupid fucking boycotts..."
Isn't not buying something boycotting it? Which are you for, and which are you against? I don't agree that you should have been modded as flamebait, but you really should tighten up your complaint.
...turn it into ascii chars to send over https to your browser? Then, all email providers are guilty.
I've never seen that happen. Wow. If that's the case, they are probably testing certain people to see how it pans out. That doesn't bode well. Be vocal with them, if you can.
When they first came out, I was impressed. They were streaming programs and trying honestly to generate revenue. Instead of cramming ads down my throat, they tried to show them in innovative ways, as a sort of compromise to the ad-weary consumer. They would show two cars and let me pick an ad to watch. They would ask if I wanted to view all commercials first so I could watch the show uninterrupted.
And the commercials were short. I was optimistic about the way things were headed. I understand the need to make money. Hulu seemed to be sensitive to their audience.
Then, Hulu Plus came along. They basically said.. "Some of that free content is no longer free. You have to pay for it now. But, you still have to watch commercials". With that, I ceased all interaction with Hulu. About a year later, I decided that paying for some streaming content would be worthwhile, if I could watch it on my terms. I now gladly give Netflix my money for that. So long as they don't charge me twice by also showing ads, I will stick with them.
I hope they don't forget anything from their Chopin list.
Here is what Florida (and the rest of the World) would look like if the sea level rose:
"you can thank Doug Engelbart, who passed away today"
Then, no. No, we can't.
Stratasys, a company specializing in industrial 3d-printing will likely complete their acquisition of makerbot in the fall. For better or worse, this should change things in the consumer 3D printer space.
