Now for the XBox One which basically wants to be a PC with a M$ tax on every piece of hardware or software you attempt to attach to the device.
However it is pretty obvious, that big corporations not paying taxes is becoming a more a more powerful political meme. People are starting to demand those corporations pay taxes and politicians will win or lose based on their willingness to ensure large multi-national corporations pay taxes. So yes Amazon, Apple, Google will be paying taxes or their executives will start going to jail for tax fraud. This is a global issue and treaty to stick it to those tax cheats and the tax haven pirates is in the offing. A few extended prison terms for tax fraud would also be nice and politically demanded.
I really hope you don't think management should take credit for a price rise following a price drop and a failed buyout and no perceived future, no, surely you wouldn't do that. Neither would you take credit for any revenue increases that were simply inflationary or even worse bought in. That would be really really be blonde dumb. Better POE ratios and improvements in the value of assets but please not "I'VE GOT PUPPIES, LOTS AND LOTS OF PUPPIES". You might impress the non-investor but those with a bit more nous are going to look on you as the fool. That puppies thing, nobody said much at the time because it was just so, so, ???!!! seriously that was a business plan, puppies.
Gees talk about grow up. This is all about technology and how do you isolate data when a search warrant is issued. You have no idea what data is on those hard drives until you have forensic examined them ie pointless taking the word of the people involved as duh that is why a search warrant and data seizure was implemented in the first place. Obviously the medical firm is attempting a legal counter strike because they know they are guilty as hell and are attempting to taint the evidence guilt by a frivolous civil suite.
Now can you care to explain, how anybody, any agency, can decide what is or is not on any storage device prior to examining it as they can not legally take the word of the person holding the data.
Talk about attempting in the most amazingly stupid politically biased fashion to make a mountain out of a mole hill. What the fuck is passing as news in the rabid attempt to politicise anything and everything with one gross exaggeration after another.
This has always been the hassle with data seizures, what is legally allowed to be taken and what is not, without taking it and examining it, can you spend a month on site and basically shut it down while all the data stored is examined and only the legally warrantable information is copied.
Your just like all those engineers that point to a single big engine as better than many smaller ones. Why it always fails, single point of failure and you have nothing. Next up is the hassle of smoothing out power delivery. Wasting space on two power system? it's like have two and you throw one away, rather than combine the total or how efficiently the space is now used. Why are single super capacitors used now, hmm, because they don't bloody work in practice. Theory, theory, wonderful theory.
Libertarians are people who have never ceased being teenagers and seeing beyond their own personal needs and desires, they have no expectations at all about other people's behaviour as they do not think of it at all. They are permanently stuck in the 'me now generation' like a broken record and they quite simply cannot conceive of a society based upon that principle because it is beyond their understanding, hence their desire for it.
Of course never forget evolution does not stop, so human evolution, drives social evolution, drives human evolution, drives social evolution. So models of extended families can exist but as currently demonstrated they consistently fail as patriarchies however as demonstrated by Mosuo culture http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosuo they can succeed as matriarchies.
So a healthier human society requires a shift away from psychopathic patriarchies to far more stable socially matriarchies (it's the whole extended families concept).
Even smarter, not one super capacitor but a whole series of them, which discharge into a low capacity rechargeable battery (that high output discharge will actually extend the life of the battery as it would prevent crystalline build up), in sequence to provide smooth delivery of power. The series of small super capacitors can still be charged at high speed and via a more regular rechargeable battery provide smooth delivery of current.
Nope worse every single time. Seriously in what universe other than Saturday morning cartons does a cadet get promoted to captain of the the fleet flagship after a lieutenant commander surrenders command to that cadet. That seriously does reflect the quality of these stories, Saturday morning cartoon palp produced by a nepotistic insider protected family and connections and massive amounts of bullshit advertising.
More specifically that new content requires endless boring suck saturation marketing which often means no one really gives a crap about it. Wasn't going to comment but the header 'unread' for being over the top with photo is nothing more than a blatant , 'OH NO' nobody gives a crap about star trek any more, we desperately need to generate interest.
I've already seen some Jerk Jerk A (this reflects my boredom with fabricated Hollywood hero worship, actors, directors, producers ) comments, where he is claiming greater interest in Star Wars and has less personal interest in Star Trek, which does not bode will for the current movie.
Never forget that a good story needs creative skilled writing, where as modern saturation advertising content only needs a cartoon story board that vaguely links together a string of action scenes. As for the movie itself, haven't bothered to watch a trailer through to the end let alone be likely to waste any time on the movie, Star Trek is dead, meh who cares, never was a trekkie.
Added to this technically speaking, when it comes to free speech rights they are unlimited under the constitution, as there is no law limiting the extent of those rights as such any perceived infringement of those rights can be publicly challenged in the Australian High Court. The same goes for all other citizens rights.
The only way to make it more democratic would be to increase the number of laws that require a public referendum prior to their being changed, as is required for any changes to the constitution eg no electoral laws should be able to be changed without a referendum. This likely should also extend to laws the govern harm to self rather than harm to others. For example it should have required a referendum to have made marijuana illegal or by extension under a referendum tobacco could be made illegal.
Android licence fees to M$ for bogus patents,hmm, fiscal revenge is in order. Remember all android owners are paying those bullshit M$ patent fees so hmm screw M$ phone customers make them bloody pay too or cancel the bullshit android licence fees. Paying $10 to M$ for nothing, fuck you M$.
Which is why the 'er' leak and the hopes it will go viral one of the reasons for 'M$' was the launching of embedded adds in products and for snooping on customers with office apps. If they were to publicly run the adds rather than leak and hope for viral spread it would soon be pointed out to them that they launched most of what they are complaining about Google doing.
The consignment of criminal acts is dangerous. Oh tee hee a foreign agent killed some citizens, oh tee hee a foreign agent funded internal terrorists, oh tee hee foreign agent is consorting with and funding local organised crim. Perhaps a foreign agent corrupted local politicians to start a war and kill thousands of our soldiers to fulfil their goals of regional dominance, hmm, Mossad and the US government, not so fucking funny now is it. Capturing intelligence is worlds apart from inciting criminal acts like treason.
Not people, no not people, bloody psychopaths, who can not see beyond feeding their own insatiable ego and lusts. We have constructed a society around it and modern mass media in it's insanity filled with clinical narcissists celebrates. The burning down of the environmental conditions under which we evolved by people who care not one whit how many die whether 10, 100, 1000 or a million or the whole planet as long as they get theirs now. Don't just be wary of their, either eliminate their control and influence or they will eliminate all of the rest of us.
Basically what thousands of animators have done when using an actors image to create an animated character. When the animated character is computer generated this B$ patent allows M$ to sue every animation company across the globe who has down this. Note is does not include or exclude human activity in the process. This is a straight up long term grab for cash as M$'s other products die and they become more patent suit orientated.
