But doen't the scientific process also mean, that we have to think about a theory and its possibilities before dismissing it?
Yes. And that's why they go for the more expensive model approach instead of the cheap CGI. *double facepalm*
Yes. My brain.
And it's leaving the solar system too. More often than my doctors like it to.
All stars pictured here are at least 18 years or older.

Gonna print out a sign for my bathroom saying "#OccupyToilet" right now!

Oh really? If you're not signed with them they keep making money with your music anyway (aka your work):
- Radio and TV stations have to pay per played track
- Restaurants, clubs, pubs too
- Public events too
- Hell, even schools and kindergartens have to pay. Last christmas they fined teachers because the children were singing christmas songs in public!
If your an independent artist and your music is played, the organizer would have to send a form for EVERY ONE of your tracks including your name, address, a statement that you aren't signed with GEMA and so on. As you can imagine it's cheaper for organizers to just go with it and pay for the independent tracks too.
So no, you don't have a choice. GEMA is gonna make money with your work weather you like it or not.
And BTW: If you sign with them, you even have to FUCKING PAY TO THEM IF YOU WANT TO PUT YOUR OWN TRACKS ON YOUR OWN WEBSITE!
Every time I read "for science", I think "For science! You monster..."

And do it for fun, not because you "need" to.

- Packing spheres into a cylinder.
- Ahem... I think I'll go somewhere else now...
In addition to the usual Voice Search and Voice Control tools I have on my android phone 4 (!) tools that do pretty much what Siri does:
- Speaktoit Assistant
- EVA Intern
- Pocket Blonde
AFAIK all but one were around before Siri.
So where exactly is the "2 year advantage"?
