They studied hard and ensured they fully understood every aspect of basic satellite lunch systems domestically before moving to the next stage.
I can imagine an Indian scientist thinking "Hmmm... what do satellites like to eat for lunch, and what type of system can we build to feed it to them?"
Or just switch to Open Office or other derivatives.
That is exactly what I did. Unfortunately every once in a while one of my colleagues will send me a document (usually a power point presentation) that won't open in anything other than the newest version of office.
Just tell them "I'm sorry, but your file is in a non-standard format and I can't open it."
Isn't that supposed to be windows 8.2?
Windows 8.1 update (as opposed to Windows 8.1) is supposed to be Windows 8.2.
Better experience? I get nothing but frustration from my wife's iDevices. I haven't used Android, so I can't compare, but Android would have to be pretty bad if Apple is a better experience. (I have an old flip phone. Makes calls. It's off most of the time.)
A better life? Get rid of your damned phones.
Good don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.
That's right, cheer for your enslavement. You deserve whatever you get. Don't worry about my ass, it's yours that will be sore from the DRM.
I've had far too many problems with this crap. Games that I paid for not working (claiming I had software on my computer that I did not (for mounting images), and even if I did, that would be my own business), DVDs from the store that failed to play (gave up on ever using MS WMP after it told me the content of the DVDs was protected and I couldn't watch it), wife paying for Treehouse on her iPad to keep the youngster pacified at times and it not working (wrong region! WTF? In the same damned region as every day before when it worked), video from a sonar causing recorder to stop recording (claiming copyright flag), video from a camera 100m under the ocean also causing the recorder to stop recording (claiming copyright flag). Not being able to use the HD feed from some of those subsea cameras with a video capture device that will only accept the analog feed from them (for fear it might be copyrighted). This is the future you are embracing. Hope you enjoy it.
Their lack of DRM support is what is causing them to lose market share.
What lack of support is causing loss of market share? I have yet to see anything that requires it in my browser. I realize my own personal experience is hardly representative of users as a whole.
If nobody supported it, no market share would change. Since that is unlikely, market share will change. Some, like myself, will not support DRM laden things whenever possible. Sadly, it's not always possible. Others will say "Yay! My browser doesn't work right, and I can't watch the "premium content" I paid for." and take the DRM in the ass.
What the hell do you need DRM in a browser for? The internet is getting messed up badly enough now, without that crap. Defective by design.
The users have spoken and they don't want ideology, they want technology.
So do I... technology that works. And we'd have a lot more of it without DRM. DRM is not about tech, it is about content. Apples and oranges dude. (Anonomous Coward at that.)
They'll lose market share for implementing DRM.
This might be one of the best things to happen for SpaceX.
Time for SpaceX to jack up the price!
My parents had me on technic sets before I hit third grade.
I gave my nephew his first Technic set for his 4th birthday. He looked and the box and it said "8+", and he said "You know, I'm only four!" He wasn't long figuring out how to build with it though.
"Oh, you should see him use the iPhone!".
He uses an iPhone?! I'm sorry to hear that, I didn't realize he had brain damage.
Exposing children to new technology is a terrible idea.
An Egyptian legend relates that when the god Thoth revealed his invention of writing to King Thamos, the good King denounced it as the enemy of civilization.
He probably would have been okay with it if the writing was on papyrus, and not on a tablet.
Depends upon your definition of "qualified"
There would be millions of volunteers. If you need a thousand, you could pick the top 0.1%.
Well, we all know that the telephone sanitizers are the first to board...
