Your data is their ASSET.
Business exploit assets in whatever possible way.
Your assumption that they will be only be used for targeted ads is naive.
Your naivety has been noted.
As my paranoid convoluted thinking has.
Have a nice day.
Your data is their ASSET.
As much as I hate trivial patents in any field, I must admit that when I wipe windows off a pc and put debian on it, it sure feels like a new machine...
Well if they win, then everybody should be able to do anything with the content they access from the net using whatsoever api (http protocol included) no matter what the TOS of the sites are. Or I am missing something...
I don't have the link for MS tech but if you surf long enough you'll find some others already offering to make your avatar photo cartoonish with a pretty animated demo.
What if this is the expected behavior? IMHO the climate change debate is basically a diversion.
They ARE making this planet inhabitable (I say They, not We because nobody's ever been asked to make informed choices since the start of the industrial revolution), by pollution, and the reasons are very rational. Once you need treatments just to stay alive in a fscked up world, who owns treatments owns you.
Insisting on a single aspect, CO emissions, and linking it to climate change, and most of all, approaching it with taxes (srsly?), means that the debate is chained to specific aspects, and forgets about the rest.
After all the same system that taxes you for CO2 has no problems in introducing untested substances and organisms, and does not raise hell when unsafe toys or food are imported in your country. Strange, no?
especially this: Rootless GoboLinux
>First, surveillance is not about prevention, it is ALWAYS about catching people after the fact.
so it is irrelevant for terrorism, suicide missions.
widespread data gathering + law systems so convoluted that everybody is violating something = widespread control.
Welcome to the present planet earth.
In the 80s people reasoned like:
"car phone: 3000000 Lit. (italian lira)
antenna for car phone (it was different from the one used by the car stereo) : 750000 Lit.
Ergo, I'll just buy and mount the antenna"
They see me rolling, they wandering.
By allowing only trademark you will give a strong incentive to creative guys not to share. Worst idea ever.
Anyway you're derailing.
A media company caught violating copyright under current law should be fined a lot more than all the others. Not because they're more or less evil. Because
1. they know these laws better than anybody, they might have even paid for them.
2. they bother LEGITIMATE PAYING CUSTOMERS with their hubbub about piracy at the beginning of DVD, games, ads... and then, they proceed to take advantage of others' creativity? Awful.
No dichotomy when the aim is 100% free systems, not 100% free infrastructure built to accommodate non-free plugins which makes the result non free.
I consider children sexual attraction to older people impossible because children are de facto subject to so much crap that they can't express their own personality and wishes anymore;
even if we went all back to desert islands, I think consent is not enough for such acts, consent can be easily tricked out of ADULTS, never mind youngsters. So Stallman has done a shallow analysis on the problem, in other words he's terribly wrong.
Yet I don't understand your post. Do you refuse math if stallman writes that 2+2=4?
OTOH the choice becomes: stay free and HTML5 compliant or (try to) restrict viewers relying on 3rd party technology which won't work well and forever on millions to billions of devices.
DRM on HTML is the best way to make all HTML an ex-standard.
Closed or controlled-as-in-android OS means forced obsolescence is way easier. Do you think hardware makers would keep subjecting themselves to MS Apple and Google now that alternative ecosystems cover A LOT of use cases?
This explains 3d, secure boot, acpi and other annoying problems that were not present when I was installing ppc linux on a powerbook in 2003.
