Can you supply a pointer to how one would do that?
It'd be an earthquake.
Piracy is shorter than "sharing files you don't have the right to share." People understand what it is. When you mention piracy, very few people think of high seas shenanigans.
What is important is that it is illegal. What is important is that maybe it should not be illegal.
Calling it piracy is fine. People should probably also call it civil disobedience.
File sharing is what you do with something you own.
Piracy is sharing files that you do not own.
Civil disobedience is peacefully breaking the law for reasons you feel are just.
Movies are about fiction (virtually always).
Some educator uploading material they do not own is piracy. It may also be civil disobedience.
Some 12 year old downloading Katy Perry is piracy. It probably is not civil disobedience.
Several folks point out that they are "Replacing google talk with hangouts, which won't support xmpp."
I have a chat client that supports xmpp that I use with my gmail account. In my case that's ichat. Will my ichat client still be able to connect to a google xmpp server and do its thing? Note, this isn't a hangout client. I won't be able to talk to hangout users. But will I still be able to xmpp through google with other xmpp users?
It's not clear to me whether or not they're totally going to drop it.
Still, I think this blows.
* Unless you don't think so.
I don't eat meat because I find animal food farming in this country (the US) abhorrant. I don't eat well treated food animals (free range, wild hunted, etc) because I find it simpler to draw the line at "I don't eat meat".
I'm looking forward to commonly available vat-grown beef. Once the price point hits a reasonable level, I think I will partake. Other people won't feel the same way.
But getting folks to understand security and encryption is pretty hard.
Hybrid solutions are what you often want for a business. If the client has encrypted the message, then great - forward it through. If it has not, then encrypt it on the gateway. If it can't figure out how (missing keys), then reject the message.
It's a shame there isn't a commonly used encryption standard. I blame the US government for making this basically illegal to implement without worrying about who a person is and what country they live in/are from.
If they think that people will subscribe to 10 different "streaming sites" like they do "cable packages", they are insane.
The sad thing is that they already do. Folks are used to paying multiple providers for content - and/or paying those providers for multiple packages. I don't think the internet will end up being any different.
Sad, but I'm afraid that's the way it's gonna go.
Hell, how many people have huge numbers of streams replacing what used to be the telephone? Email, twitter, facebook, their cell phone, their landline, text messages, etc.
So... There is that.
I never liked adobe, anyway.
I think the definition of functional programming languages is more about what you can't do than what you can do - since they're all turing complete...
I'm just stopping by to say:
