He got into these problems with revenue matching because he is running his business on cash basis accounting. In general only very small businesses can be run on cash basis accounting almost all manufacturing oriented businesses use accrual accounting. With accrual accounting you would book the Kickstarter money as a customer deposit and then recognize it as income when the product ships.
I used to have TVs all over the house. Now I only have two. The reason for this is the $15/mth rental on the cable box that is needed at each TV. Over three or four years the cost of this box rental exceeds the cost of the TV.
If Windows were a car...
Only if the cars are running Windows.
I think this more about stopping funding of things like this:
Dr. Li’s project will develop, implement and evaluate a venue-based alcohol and HIV risk reduction intervention center for establishment-based female sex workers in Guangxi, China. The sex trade is more prevalent in Guangxi, Dr. Li said, an area ranked third in the rate of HIV among provinces.
If you're going to study hookers, they have to be American hookers.
That would be fun to see. I still can't see any reason for the MIr split other than Canonical's contributor agreement which lets them sell the code. Does Canonical really think Redhat/Intel/etc are going to write code and then give it to Canonical so that they can resell it as closed source?
But I would much rather have one fully working graphics system than four or five half working ones. Much more interesting would be to work towards a merger between Wayland and Surfaceflinger.
Ars wrote on this a while ago.
Boston wants to apply a lot of taxes to FIOS and Verizon decided to pass on the deal.
Why do you assume that AMD did this voluntarily? Much more likely that this is caused by some idiotic DRM requirement for for HDCP 'protected audio path' or working around some idiotic patent. Likely reason - a DRM requirement to stop people from plugging in devices that strip HDCP.
They need the subsidize the extra 32GB of flash needed to hold Windows Phone too.
Then we can delete WIndows Phone and use the 32GB flash.
Just for fun Google should put those exact licensing terms Microsoft used against Toshiba into their Android license.
My memory is fuzzy on this, but I believe Microsoft took Toshiba to court and made them stop dual booting Linux on their laptops about 20 years ago. At the time Toshiba owned a Linux distribution so they prevented Toshiba from shipping their own code.
This is the same Microsoft that is extorting everyone over unnamed Android patent infringements.
Why would you want to work with them? Every company that works with them ends up dead or wounded.
OpenWRT is the way to go. Just buy a new, cheap commercial router and replace the software with OpenWRT. Don't mess with the laptop. It chews too much AC power and the wifi is probably not as powerful as the radio in the commercial router. You can buy fine 2.4Ghz router hardware for $30.
DDwrt is a mess, OpenWRT project organization is much better.
Microsoft shipped these products without first negotiating a RAND royalty rate. They just picked their own rate of 'zero' and shipped. Motorola then filed suit to force a negotiation and payment. Google has nothing to do with this, this all happened before Google bought Motorola. Of course Motorola was annoyed about having to file suit to get paid so they picked a high number.
Would it your change your opinion if you knew that Microsoft's interpretation of FRAND over these patents is for them to pay zero to Motorola for their use? And that's what started this lawsuit in the first place - so far they have paid nothing.
I'm not an insider but I suspect this has to do with Oracle's acquisition of Sun. Sun used to take care of X.org. Now that Oracle has swallowed Sun a lot of things that Sun used to do have been cut. So X.org needs some new friend with a legal and tax department to keep everything in order. Groups of volunteer programmers are known not to be competent in these matters.
