No... obviously that's what my laptop is for.
I think you just explained Windows 8.
You are being pedantic, but you're not even doing it right. Wind and hydro power are just forms of solar, as are coal and oil, though a few more degrees removed. Even geothermal energy is mostly radioactive decay, so yet another form for "nuclear power."
I guess we all need to switch to tidal power. Yay for moon power!
You don't seem to have a good understanding of how rights work nor of the legal process in general.
Or have the security on the train itself? Maybe have everyone enter at the front half of the train, process people in a line, and proccess people can board the rear cars?
Then at least you'd be travelling to the plane while you're forced to wait for security.
That is completely wrong. He doesn't have to prove anything. Even as a "criminal," you have rights, and just because there's strong proof that he had CP on one drive it doesn't mean he suddenly loses his rights to not decrypt those drives.
I don't think this is true that there isn't a viable replacement. I don't have a prediction for whether Linux gaming will ever happen, but people are definitely buying more Mac OS X desktops/laptops these days, even without the appeal of gaming. Once you reach a critical mass of gamers who also own Macs, it makes sense to publish games for Mac OS X.
The same thing happened with our phones. Once our phone became fast enough to play games, people made games for our phones.
I think he's arguing that it hasn't been growing in market share. Microsoft may be losing market share in a lot of areas, but most of it isn't to Linux (or at least to Linux in a way that help gamers who want to run Linux on their gaming PCs).
People also pay to watch people pretend to be other people every week. I don't see anyone questioning TV actors and actresses getting paid.
And marketing is a finickey science. I may not buy something simply because a pro endorsed it, but I could easily see why associating a player/actor I like with a product could make it stand out among a line of 10 other ones. Then, when I go consider which one to buy, it's quite likely that it would be one of the 3-5 products I consider (as I probably won't compare all 10 products). If the product is good, an endorsement could certainly bring it the exposure it needs to succeed over another quality product.
While we're using made-up science far beyond the realm of our technology, why not just open a warp tunnel near the asteroid and teleport the thing somewhere safer?
This just highlights the weakness in our counting system. We need to start a petition to switch from decimal to hexidecimal!
In the US, I believe most packaging does in fact have both measurements (oz, then g). If you try to buy a liter (litres don't exist here) of beer, though you're out of luck. Soda comes in 2-liter bottles for some reason even though all other liquids are generally measured in pints, quarts, and gallons. And we definitely don't use stones for weight; people lose or put on pounds. Even thought almost everything has both Imperial and Metric markings, we use almost exclusively Imperial in everyday conversation.
Also, if you go climbing around here, your routes are measured in feet, but your ropes in meters. So try to remember that your 60-meter rope can't get you back down anything much higher than 100 feet.
That doesn't make it not price fixing. If the only way to get the digital versions is to pay $100 more, and clearly it doesn't cost the publishers that amount to make the books (since the dead-tree versions somehow sell for less), it's still price fixing.
Nope, that was me making a mistake. Good catch.
