I read the "About Docker" page on their website and it says this:

Docker is an open-source project to easily create lightweight, portable, self-sufficient containers from any application. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop can run at scale, in production, on VMs, bare metal, OpenStack clusters, public clouds and more.

Even after reading it, I've got no fucking idea what it does! Their "read more" page just shits out a whole load of buzzwords.

BB10 will have the Android Runtime that came with the PlayBook, so most Android apps will be able to be ported quickly (assuming the developers get round to it). This should give RIM a massive leg-up on populating their app store quickly, albeit with some inconsistent-UI issues.

We already did. We held elections in 2009, sick of the existing Labour government that was kissing US arse and instead opted for a Conservative/Liberal coalition that both insists on keeping us in recession and continues to kiss US arse.

Democracy doesn't work when none of the electable parties have your best interests in mind.

Have sales gone up?

If sales have gone up, then congratulations, you've scored a minor victory against those stealing to avoid paying for decent content, but if not, what exactly have you achieved? Sure, people have stopped *cough* "stealing" your content, but they're not buying it either, it simply proves it wasn't worth paying for in the first place.

Either that, or they're still downloading it for free, they just figured out another way to do it without getting caught. Thus continuing the perpetual cycle of cat and mouse between the consumer and the dying business model of the entertainment industry.
