While MathML can be used to describe stuff related directly to computation (like for example 1+2+3+...+n written with the big sigma symbol) more often is used for things that aren't computations and don't have a program equivalent (or at least not a useful one).

Try to use a program to communicate some abstract theorem you just discovered.

I was saying the same about IMSIs earlier ... we can't agree on what's the decimal separator, if today is 12/10 or 10/12, can't chat to but somehow we'll get a reasonable percentage of the owners AND buyers to register in some specific database. Good luck with that.

Not only that but it also assumes you can't tamper with the serial and doesn't address what happens if somebody starts to spam the DB.

Some of my friends knew quite well some particular Spectrum Z80 clone that had an (albeit recessed) reset button on the keyboard (well, the computer was inside the keyboard so to speak).

Somewhere around windows 95 and all ping of death variations (valid for NT3-4 as well) we used to regret the lack of such key on PC keyboards. We were actually discussing how to include such key somewhere on the keyboard as cleanly as possible.

I don't understand how it solved the problem with fake reviews. I think you need a google account to even have google play working at all so if I'm going to write bogus reviews I can still make it a Google+ account and use whatever name, it isn't like they're checking.
Google knows who you are if you're using an android phone (they DO know a lot about you, think, they have your location, your IPs both from inside and outside the network, your IMEI, IMSI, possibly your phone number, your address book, your email, even before you start giving them credit card no, pictures, documents, etc). It's not hard to weed out the non-users.

The only problem they had was that nobody was using Google+. This is why they're pushing it to play store, youtube and who knows where else too.

Google killed a good part of "pseudonimity" with this crazy move to link your Google+ profile to your play/market reviews (even for just giving X stars without any comment).
WTF? Ok, google knows a lot of stuff about me, where I am, it reads my email, some documents, knows a good chunk of what I browse, etc. WHATEVER. However, I just don't want to have a list of apps and apps rating associated with my name. It just feels wrong.

Every nonzero finite dimensional inner product space has an orthonormal basis. It makes sense, when you don't think about it.
