The fire phone is currently $189 for an unlocked phone and it includes a year of prime. That means free shipping for a year no matter what platform you order on as well as free video and music streaming for a year.

By "pissed" I mean we would charge them with the costs of removing all of the hardware from the field and doing the board reworks. You don't get these kinds of guarantees at the hobby level, but you do at the higher end. We've never had to do it for "clones" but we have for parts that didn't meet spec in other ways. I might be a little bit ticked at FTDI, but none of our stuff ever touches windows anyway.
We don't use any of the serial only chips, but on the higher end with JTAG and SPI the FTDI parts work great and aren't too expensive. If any "clone" chips get into our supply chain we would be very pissed at whoever did it. We specify actual FDTI parts for a reason. The "clones" have very hit or miss quality. We don't use them under windows either.
It's more likely they are running the traffic through and IDS/IPS rather than logging everything. It's also likely that well know banking sites are excluded and just passed through. It does use quite a lot of resources to scan the traffic after all.
Tabula has some cool tech. Their current chips aren't dense enough for what we wanted to do with them, but at 22nm they might be.
You're going to get your license pulled if you take it below 1000 feet without cause though. Wanting to take pictures is normally not cause. If you are a TV news crew it might be, but not otherwise.
Look for the Baen hard covers that include a CD. They don't charge any more for them and you get a digital copy of that book and many more on the CD. Now if only other publishers followed the example. Oh, and Baen doesn't believe in DRM for any of their books.
This looks like The Fourth "R" by George O. Smith.
Almost all churches already pay a license fee to display the music on the overhead projector. It's the CCLI number in the corner of the projection. They've been doing this for years.
Books have had advertisements in them for a long time. Magazines too. Usually the book advertisements were for more books, but the advertisements in magazines could be for anything.

How about free?
He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without
lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without
darkening me. That ideas should freely spread from one to another over the
globe, for the moral and mutual instruction of man, and improvement of his
condition, seems to have been peculiarly and benevolently designed by
nature, when she made them, like fire, expansible over all space, without
lessening their density in any point, and like the air in which we breathe,
move, and have our physical being, incapable of confinement or exclusive
He was talking specifically about patents, but the idea is still relevant for copyright.
Estimated actual damages
24 songs with a $.99 retail value. Assume the $.99 is the damage per song that a sale was lost on. (That's not the case actually as the wholesale price is the damage amount.) Assume every song downloaded is an actual lost sale. (Again not true, but simple for this calculation.) Assume a seed ration of 5, so for every song 5 copies were made. (Again not true, 5 is an insanely high ratio on P2P networks as 1:1 is common.) 24*.99.*5 = $118.80 actual losses incurred. 10 times that is the constitutionally recognized limit.
That's why RIAA doesn't want the constitutionality of the damages award adjudicated.
Now it makes sense that a friend in the Navy told me, everyone with half a brain tries to get on a carrier instead of a sub.
Everyone with half a brain joined the Air Force instead of the Navy. Not having a private room as an E5 was considered a hard ship and you got an apology for it.
Exactly when and where was it published. If it was published in the US prior to 1964 it still required a renewal. If it wasn't renewed it's in the public domain.
