When it comes to this Amazon business, this is something normal users are totally accustomed to, and many may actually enjoy. The "mass migrations" you guys keep talking about are those who should probably be using mint, or straight debian in the first place. You don't, won't, or can't understand that the work that goes into Ubuntu costs money that can only be recouped in the space it has some clout, and wiggle room, in. Enterprise may already have a support contract, but Ubuntu's presence there isn't enough to start re-negotiating contract terms. Ubuntu can only make moves on the consumer space to really start influencing income and enterprise. Look at the influx of enterprise support of Apple/Android products. This has been due their success in the consumer market causing them to make strides into enterprise. Microsoft is so deeply entrenched in enterprise that going straight for it on its grounds would be a terrible idea.
Design patents seems to have come from a case involving silverware in 1891. "Design patents are generally agreed to be more subjective. They're good for 14 years, and spring from an 1891 court case that found one silverware manufacturer had copied the pattern of another. If the "ordinary observer" can detect "substantial similarity" in one silverware pattern versus another, the original's design has been infringed, ruled the Supreme Court. And that's still the standard used in a design patent case involving two sophisticated, multi-layered electronic devices today."
Has Apple gotten too close to the patent office or does the patent office lack the kind of expertise in the ever evolving technology field to decide in an unbiased fashion to grant a patent or not?
"Until now, design patents have tended to play a much smaller role in computing and consumer electronics. For example, of the 6,242 patent examiners in the U.S. Patent Office, 99 of them are design examiners. The rest are utility patent examiners.""

If you want your internet provider to like your choice of media subscription then go find one that specifically is. If not, go ahead and get Comcast.
Surely you're joking. Most places are very lucky to have a choice between two ISPs (that are essentially the same company). Satellite does not count, caps prevent streaming.
