No. They're actually at about $1.5 billion right now when you add up the financing, loans, IPO, etc.
That's still a dam, just not with an as large of reservoir. The grandparent was talking about submerged power generation on a river which has never been done successfully.
What you propose is possible for things like ocean currents, but a river isn't deep enough or have enough of a continual flow to be useful for power generation unless you use a dam to build a reservoir. Then the water can be released at a steady rate, and you can hide the power generation portions in places where there is no boat traffic, like inside the dam.
Ice Weasel follows the main Firefox tree. They just remove the Firefox\Mozilla copyrighted images.
It will probably be a local cell on the plane that relays through a satellite connection. Like they do WiFi now.
But my point being, as long as your product is THE ONLY ONE IN THE MARKET, and as long as the market still exists, you have nothing to worry about.
If you think you are the only one in the market, there is a good chance that you have completely misdefined your market. History is littered with companies that thought they had their market down pat and that they were the only major dominate player in it. But there are always products that are just tangential to your market that make a good enough replacement that some consumers will start using (and then the company will improve making it good enough for other customers). See Blackberry, Blockbuster, large steel mills. Most companies will miss this until it's too late since the first customers to leave are usually the most price sensitive (and therefore usually the least profitable ones).
The only company that really catches onto this well is Apple who's fully willing to cannibalize their sales of one product to introduce a new one in a slightly different market. See the iPhone basically killing off the iPod and the iPad starting to eat deep into the Mac sales.
You can just download them for free now from the App Store.
I think you have it backwards. The "trolls" need to identify what product of yours is infringing and how, not the other way around. You still don't need an actual product to file a suit with the new bill.
Even easier. Raise the gas tax. It'll increase revenue, easier to administer, and encourage even less use of gas.
Until we reach a world where we use zero gas to transport, this makes the most sense, since gas taxes are both a rough proxy for miles traveled and encourages less fuel use.
The new company he works for actually released it already. It's been on github for the last 7 months. If there was a question of ownership on the code, why it couldn't be figured out from comparing the released version of Visdom to the internal version of Sophia to see if any code was stolen is left up to the reader.
They're replacing the landline POTS service with a fixed wireless system or with FIOS. The wireless service is similar for POTS, but doesn't do DSL.
Depends on the neighborhood on who gets what.
Storing currency amounts as cents is actually fairly common.
It looks like they're exporting, deleting and then reimporting cookies before the cookies are set to expire. They can then get back into the site they just had access to. I fail to see how this "exploit" isn't actually the expected behavior of a properly functioning login tracked with a cookie.
If you're selling your phone you'd disable the lock feature, disassociate the phone from your account and sell it. It only hurts those who are selling stolen iPhones, not those who are legitimately reselling the device.
The corn syrup thing is just a myth. They switched from sugar to corn syrup five years before the introduction of New Coke.
