..which is eaxactly why this will happen. =(
That sounds equally horrible, tbh. ISP's are not inherently evil and need to be stopped or punished. If they are ganged up upon, they will have a tougher time - and that would probably translate to higher prices for the customers.
Microsoft has NEVER been first with a new service or product or platform - yet they seem to do pretty good in many ventures. Never count them out. I actually have a feeling Windows Phone 7 might be something...
You just had to throw in a cars analogy.. =)
Except that Oblivion was a disaster from a design and gameplay perspective. Also, I never found the story to be anything interesting, merely a backdrop, and there was zero immersion in the dialogs. I actually think that a large percentage of the ones who liked that game did it for the graphics.
Oracle is well known in the business (of making money) to have a very good, large and agressive sales force, and that is what have made them large and successful, not the quality of their products.
No, it's marketing that is required to make it mainstream. Sorry, next isn't going to be The Year of Linux either.
I don't get the joke..? It's a joke, right?

As Wikipedia notes, this is a problem that has plagued not only Toyota, but also Audi and other manufacturers. Consumer Reports has some suggestions all automakers can implement to solve this problem, including requiring brakes to be strong enough to stop the car even when the accelerator is floored."
"Activision acquired Vivendi" - it was the other way around, the board of Activision Blizzard consists of the former Vivendi board. Vivendi wanted a better brand name..
I'm sure they gave it to Obama so that he couldn't back down on his peace-making line. To make sure he'd follow through. Ofcourse the prize doesn't go to the most peaceful guy in the world, he'd probably be too high to accept the price. It goes anywhere the comittee feel it will do most good.
Wanna work for us..?
Some people like that. Maybe not the gray matter thing, but the rest seem perfectly reasonable.
You just said it wrong. You need to really believe what you're saying, believe your own crap.
Exactly. When are people going to realize that the slow uptake of Linux or other free software has nothing to do with quailty, and everything, absolutely everything, to do with marketing? No year will ever be the 'year of Linux'.
