It's that kind of thinking outside the box that risk averse, blame shifting, bureaucracy loving big business can't tolerate.
Instead of using the native OSX notifications, they added their own spammer to the menu bar... complete fail.
While they're at it, why don't they just extend "limited" copyright protection to "unlimited", at present a whole generation can pass without having free access to their cultural heritage.

I have always been into hard science fiction, especially Arthur C. Clarke and Isaac Asimov amongst others. When I finally got around to reading Ender's Game a few years ago, I must admit to being very disappointed with this story. I always found the story more of a character development story with a plot twist that just happened to take place in space, but could have been set in any number of different ways and not necessarily in space - perhaps this is the case with most good stories where drama takes place in the development and conflict with the characters own personalities and those around them - however it's pretty much a waste of a good story to set it in space and make it difficult for audiences to identify with the enormity of the sacrifices and horror of it taking place in that setting. If I was to do the screen play for this movie I would start with the second book in the series and then flash back to the first book so that the audience could at least first realise that something terrible was done and at great cost and the juxtapose that against the desperation of the human race before-hand needing to make big sacrifices and play tricks on the very people that drew the conflict to its climax and close. Enough rambling. I will pony up my $10 and go see the movie, albeit with not high expectations because I don't think Enders Game deserves to be in the top spot for "science fiction" in the first place. My tip for a story that should be turned into a movie. "The Rowan" - a good read and with telekinesis its always a bit of fun for visuals and some drama in the space opera setting.

I'd like to get my computer infected just because it's so cool... I mean, malware be damned, this is just cool. Am I alone?
That is because rumours only spread when they are in the affirmation, not a negation, ie.. "someone said 'x' is related to 'y'" will spread word of mouth, whilst "someone said 'x' is NOT related to 'y'" will not spread.

Have you seen 'Star Trek - Into Darkness' yet? Yeah, it's almost exactly like the reactor in that..

Going 20MPH below the limit should also not be a freedom.. but it is. In my (non-expert opinion) slow drivers cause more safety problems on the road than fast drivers. At least faster drivers are aware of the other drivers in front of them, whereas a slow driver is, due to certain limiting factors (eye not found on back of head), typically very unaware of what is going on behind them.. placing the onus for maneuvering around them on the countless cars that wish to travel at or near the speed limit.
