We let the AMA run medicine like a medieval guild, while almost everyone else is exposed to ruthless market competition
Therefore we should expose doctors to "ruthless market competition"? No. We should be tempering labor laws and industry regulation to ensure high quality staff, not pretending that the market is a cure-all.
Ironically, conservatives in the US argue against "socialist" medicine, while holding up the US medical system as the best in the world. Can't be both a "medieval guild" and an exemplar of capitalism. I'd say its closer to a guild and that's part of why it works so well.
Maybe this will help:
1. Open and Standardized is good.
2. DRM is not Open. (This is simply its nature.)
3. DRM can be Standardized with HTML5 extensions.
The problem is confusing point one with the FOSS attitude of wanting systems that are open. Standardization is not advocated by any open source group or in any open license. Standardization is an artifact commonly associated with free/open systems, but it's presence doesn't mean the system is free or open.
Bitch please, enough of those bad jokes.
$200 Android tablets use $9-20 ARM A9 dual-quad core SOCs. How is Intel going to compete with that? Give chips for free and make it up in volume?
Intel should make a new architecture that's better than ARM (battery life, performance/watt) and then work with Microsoft for Windows support. Atom+Windows is a delaying tactic, letting Intel and Microsoft collect as much rent as possible. Making a new architecture would be a savior for both companies:
* Intel can gain market share from exclusive Microsoft support. Notice how Windows doesn't really support ARM because the device has to be locked down; so you can't just throw Window on whatever cheap hardware you buy from Taiwan.
* Microsoft can gain near-monopoly status in small devices by tying Windows support on the new architecture to their other software (Office/AD/Exchange/.Net/SqlServer) rather than supporting open standards. All they need to do is use "unique" hardware features as justification, i.e. the encryption/network transport/cross chip memory access system/etc.. only works with Windows on the new architecture.
Ironically, Intel and Microsoft would be called "innovators" for recreating their monopolies like this.
...if the previous residents of my house liked to decorate the windows with pentagrams? Or do people understand that different people live at the same address at different times?
No, not when it comes to the internet. If hotmail.com was sold and became a p0rn site, it'd be a media apocalypse. Eventually people would understand the difference but they don't today.
What should be done, relative to the popular ignorance on this subject, is simple: the buyers of used domains should be careful to guard their reputations, allowing caches to expire, 404'ing inbound links from old affiliates, etc... A more interesting discussion would be, What technical steps should be taken when buying a used domain?
You put to jail people who never had a trial, by merely SCARING them with a hundredfold vengeance if they dare proclaim their innocence.
Thank you. I've changed my mind because of this.
Anchoring also explains hive-mind voting: the higher score is read as a signal of the "appropriate" score.
collusion: Secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy, esp. in order to cheat or deceive others.
So you were arguing that we should "expect collusion" and that it's OK? That might account for the "Troll" mods...
Irony: denying the collusion of money and power, regarding the occupy wallstreet protests.

After all, there isn't any reason why a company needs to struggle to perpetuate its existence forever...
Almost all market value is derived from future earnings; it's the potential that drives stock price.
Is there a process where you just quit before you are behind, wind down neatly, rather than the corporate equivalent of spending a few years stuck full of tubes and unresponsive in the ICU?
Yes and they're quite common. Companies call them 'projects'.
Steve Jobs made it clear that the donor matching system is corrupt: if you're rich you can register at many transplant locations. Having enough money to travel should not be a basis for medical decisions. The donor match system is national, and we should evaluate donor matches nationally. Optimizing matches by location does not have to be changed, only the influence of money.
What are passing scores for users of Windows/Mac/Linux/BSD? What about programmers of C/Python/Java/PHP/Basic?
Data loss prevention (DLP) poses a serious issue for companies, as the number of incidents and the cost to businesses continues to increase. Whether it is intentionally malicious or inadvertent, data loss can diminish a company's brand, reduce shareholder value, and damage the company's goodwill and reputation.
Key management would also be better, both easier and safer.
