In this case you have the physical hardware of an i7 but it is being restricted to an i5. The physical parts and any software is there and being restricted until you pay.

Are you a useless record exec right now?
So I agree with you and you are looking to debate it further? I never meant to casually dismiss the importance of the copyright model.
Even an economy where all digital information is free will need copyright to function.
The advertising based model of Television and Radio may still function in a full piracy scenario. Physical goods companies always need to buy advertising.
Ok I am seeing what you meant now. It is unfair for the ethical people to support the content for the unethical, regardless of finance.
If everyone freeloaded bad stuff would happen to the existing model of buying bytes. Free advertising would not work for discs or downloads because by definition none would be bought.
a lot may have never even heard of it.
I believe that was piracy in the form of a company reproducing their product and selling it to customers for money. In non commercial copying no one is eating the companies lunch because there was no transaction.
Previous to recent years one successful video game would pay for a lot of experimentation. It is only a recent development where an explosion in development cost had led to single games sinking studios. Even then some like GRIN had multiple catastrophic failures before going out of business.
For your first point those people paying more than their "fair share" in media would not get any price break if more product sold.
funny that the growth of rice does release methane into the atmosphere.
Anecdotally I have read that marketing budgets are never included in these development costs thrown around.
I think it might be something to do with multiplatform usually meaning PS3, 360, PC, while Single platform includes the Wii, portables, and download service games so small that they are unique to one service, the latter having much lower costs.
This was mandatory in my first year of high school(8-12). It only took a few weeks and was rolled into either the fine arts elective or the everything else course(sex ed, woodwork, cooking, sewing, etc).
Touch Typing could be taught in Elementary School but when I was there the computers were older than the students. The school could have taught touch typing on apple 2s but it did not.
Of course, maybe children are just learning this on their own or from family members now. I was managing to type a few "papers" before being taught touch typing and I do not recall hunting and pecking at the keys to do it.
The Airbus example is an interesting one in the "two wrongs make a right" field.
It is not Microsoft or Coca Cola who have access to the information right now.
If the EU is trying to track something down that goes through US accounts they should not be at a dead end either.
If the EU wants to keep the US out of their bank accounts that is fair, but someone should be watching, acting, and sharing if it is a useful tool for monitoring and prevention of terrorist actions.
From the picture it looks like it is going to wake his head up into a dresser.
Upon watching the video I was half right.
