Jammie Thomas was downloading copies of CD's she legally purchased?
I acquire mine via Bittorrent.
And since I accidentally posted as anonymous, I now have to type a random disclaimer below to get Slashdot to let me post it.
Look at your own link:
UMG argued, in part, that the copying was not covered by fair use because entire CDs were copied (instead of excerpts) and that the use was a commercial one (even though no fee was charged, it was supported by ad revenue).
This use would not be commercial. It's the difference between a Slingbox and Aereo. Aereo is a commercial provider. Slingbox is DIY.
And on top of that, I can't easily prove that I bought a ROM dumper on eBay/Craigslist (or borrowed one) and re-sold it once my collection was ripped. So I would hope the burden of proof that I didn't would be on them anyway.
Furthermore, piracy is not a legal or case law term - it's more of an ethical term. And ethically, it is not wrong.
Considering he had real Gameboy already and probably real cartridges, I refuse to believe that downloading ROM dumps digitally identical to the same cartridges are piracy - regardless of what Nintendo's lawyers believe.
Yep - it's called spec work:
Freudian slip as they were thinking about using these moored to their off-shore datacenter islands.
They say the same thing about web servers, too. One big one is better than lots of cheaper, smaller ones. And yet that's not how Google runs its data centers...
they have not limited what the inverter is contained in
I think that would be included in the overall size.
So why didn't they add a charging circuit for the battery, still meet the specs, and have it actually be useful? I have one on my computer.
If you're working with a printed circuit (think a computer on a magazine page or a greeting card), it's useful if the silver dots can be read by the printed circuit without an additional machine or any (relatively) large equipment at all.
And if dpi directly translated to individual sprayed dots, that would be useful. Inkjet printers spray microdroplets that aren't strictly locked to the pixel grid. And CMYK are not all perfectly aligned with one another.
Still, that inkjet printed page can't read itself. A circuit printed on the page could.
Those are distribution lines. And only the drop to the customer carries 240V. That's converted down from about 2-4KV at the pole transformer off the distribution line.
Transmission lines are what connect distribution areas to generating plants and carry tens of thousands of volts.
I think their use of the term islanded may refer to more than just the technical specifications. I bet Google wants this tech for off-shore floating data centers.
And all this is happening while the USPS is still trying to end Saturday delivery. If that ever happened, Netflix wouldn't receive any more discs to process.
Do you think that you are being throttled because of your usage or that your particular distribution center is overloaded? I know where I'm at, I mail it one day, they receive it the next, and the next movie goes out for the following day.
It might actually be a problem on the mail delivery side, but it could be your particular distribution center. I just wanted to say it's not the universal experience. But I rarely go through more than 1 disc a week because of my viewing habits.
