Yes, and if the batteries are a significant part of the price of the car (true today), this is potentially moving significant expense to the car's owner.
I know two things: First, the judge who made the decision has been conned by the weasel wording of the lawsuit. The lawyers must have known what they're doing. If you so consistently avoid mentioning that it's a streaming site and try to convince a court that it's a page similar to TPB, you won't be able to feign ignorance. You tried to cheat the court.
Judges generally don't really like being had. They really hate it when they notice you try to trick them into ruling their way. I know that one too.
Maybe it could help to send him an eye opener or two? He might want to have a word or two with the lawyers involved. Mostly because judges also don't like being the laughing stock of a whole trade, because they ruled over it and seeming like they have no idea what they ruled over.
Even if it won't change this verdict, a certain judge might be less inclined to side with the shysters in the future...
Because of two things: The average German judge doesn't know jack about technology and the law company abused that ignorance.
They said "download" in their lawsuit and the judge went "Oh, it's that where the higher courts decided for the plaintiff, like that Pirate Bay thing, so I guess I should, too".
So they can also tell the difference between butter and I can't believe it ain't butter?
I doubt the German court even understood what it ruled over, to be honest. I know their technical experience quite well, and I wouldn't trust the average judge to know more than how to press play to watch some porn. But he probably needs a bailiff for that too, he usually does when he needs to watch some kind of evidence on a computer...
Ignore the rural parts which account for most of the area and just focus on the metro areas, and you'll find that the US *STILL* is way behind.
I mean, what do we want? We want to get rid of the commercials in our program. What is the problem? Well, identifying it, of course. If it could be auto detected, it could easily be auto removed.
And here they go and give us something to identify them.
I am unfortunately not an expert on videos and the like, but shouldn't it be possible to create something like a tool that can identify the volume of the programming and if it is beyond normal to switch to something sensible? Like, say a quick zapping through the rest of the current programming (and of course switch back to your show when they finally continue).
Or another idea. Commercials don't really change, at least not often. That's mainly what makes them so annoying. You get to see the same piece of junk being hawked in the same ridiculous manner that might have been at least remotely interesting the first time you saw it, but from then on it only gets worse. And you get to see the same commercial over and over and over. Isn't it possible to identify that drivel? It may be necessary to buffer the show and delay it by a few seconds so the commercial can be correctly identified, but it should be possible to do just that.
I don't know about that. Doom was the first game I played multiplayer and the game that opened my eyes to just how fun multiplayer FPS could be. The whole concept that you and your friends were in the same map in real time shooting each other rather than mobs was quite mind-blowing!
You could do it via null-modem cable, but the real fun happened when you got more than two people together and set up a proper network. I did that a few times (IIRC old school IPX networking over coax
You could do it over direct modem connection too (just two players
I don't believe in nothing, I only believe evidence. To argue that not believing in religion is a belief itself is the kind of crazy thinking that typifies the religious, who in actual fact hold such beliefs to avoid facing their own irrelevance in cosmological terms.
Absolutely, the monarchy is much better than a US style president.
Exactly, as and Aus resident I often wonder how the US puts up with its diabolically hopeless banking system.
You don't have a left, you have far out loopy extreme right, (Fox news) and hard right (MSNBC).
The brain I use to conjure up those ideas is, from a purely physiological view, the same that Mr. Caveman used to dream up his world view. Hence I do actually consider myself able to come to the same kind of conclusion if presented the same facts.
Totemism and animism are two of the ways humans fill in the gaps in their understanding of the world. That's what we always did since the dawn of our self awareness, I'm convinced. We were asking questions about us, about our place in the universe and the universe itself. We observed. We pondered. And just as we do today when we put up the hypothesis about dark matter and dark energy because there are obviously things happening in the universe that go beyond our understanding and what we consider "real" and "right", so did human back in those days. Of course from a completely different vantage point.
Just as it makes a lot of sense to us now that there must be something that we cannot detect other than with its gravitational pull, it made a lot of sense to the early human that there are certain supernatural entities that he cannot detect other than by their effects, by the change of the seasons and the way his world affected him. It made sense to him that there was some kind of spirit, god or other otherworldly existence that sent him dreams and caused good and ill. And he tried to understand the motivation behind it, he tried to understand his "god", and even to a certain extend, to control what happens. To appease the gods, spirits or other entities.
If you ask me, that makes a lot of sense.
Just because I don't enjoy shooting or hanging doesn't mean that stoning is such a better option.
Oh don't worry. Despite GM being bailed, pensions are down the drain.
Hell, in 1985, West Germany gave East Germany just a few billion Marks. And on that they ran another 5 years. Even with inflation taken into account, those commies were better managers than GM managers obviously are.
