Autodesk has done this before. GeneriCAD, Drafix, were just a few competitors which Autodesk acquired and shutdown. Their practices are very anticompetitive.
Powerpoint has been best described as a "projector operating system".
"Unregulated and not watched by the government"
You mean like silver and gold?
I thought it's Sussudio.
A tech company laying off around 10% of its workforce isn't drastically shrinking. They're just doing routine housekeeping.
The biggest shame of Prime is that it defaults to free, 2-day shipping for every purchase, including large objects like major appliances that you don't need in 2-days. One heavy item can easily cost Amazon more for expedited shipping than what they charge for the Prime membership fee. It's a huge waste.
Consider Trumba. It's not a free service, and it will cost you around $100/month, but they give you a lot for your money. We've been using them for our local public-facing calendar (~500 events a month) for several years.
Except there is no "correctly spelled domain". You're saying that the owner of "ashley.com" can stake a claim to owning "ashlee.com" or "ashleigh.com". You also presume (incorrectly) that the multinational registered their domain first. Pay attention to context. This thread is about personal names as part of domain names where there's a lot of variation, not about fanciful marks which enjoy stronger trademark protection.
Nope. For a UDRP to go anywhere, you need to meet a pretty high bar, as in you actually registered a domain with the intent to confuse the public, and have no legitimate claim to it otherwise. And since when does ICANN award damages?
But more to the point, you're basically saying that the recipient of a misdirected email (like the OP) is required to delete it. That's not the law.
My personal domain name is a variation in the spelling of the name of a multinational company. I get a lot of people's bank statements, hotel reservations, etc. which I suppose come from senders who key in email addresses read to them over the phone, and are prone to typing in the wrong spelling.
The volume of the email has gone way down over time since self-service has become more common. It's not as big a problem as it used to be.
The best part of it, though, is when I get CV/resumes from random job applicants trying to email the company. There's unlimited prank potential when you're dealing with someone who thinks you might offer them a real job.
It amazes me how little the USPS "clicknship" website has changed over the past 10+ years. A consumer still cannot go online and print out a stamped, first class envelope, let alone an unstamped mailing label. You still cannot fill out paperwork for certified or registered mail online, instead you have to go to the post office and scribble on one of those adhesive-backed green labels with smudgy ink. If you don't want to verify a mailing address or ZIP+4, it's far easier to type it into Google.com than USPS.com because you can't do an unstructured search for an address without tabbing between Address1, Address2, City, etc. Unless you're sending an Express Mail overnight package, there isn't much you can do from USPS.com.
The USPS need a leader who can really embrace technology, deploy more online self-service tools, and more functional self-service kiosks. Maybe they should just buy out stamps.com for a billion dollars and offer it as a free service to everyone.
Youtube is far from the best speech-to-text technology available. The best STT technology is probably owned by the NSA or companies that work with them. Part of the secret sauce to good STT is voice training and speaker recognition, which I don't believe youtube's STT is capable of yet. As far as Youtube is concerned, it's only one person talking throughout each video, so when you have a French dude speaking one sentence, followed by an Irish woman the next sentence, youtube may not dynamically adapt to that.
But besides that, the first thing any STT vendors ask when you start talking to them is about the quality of the recorded sound. If your speakers are not in a low-noise environment with good microphone setups, the results will always be disappointing.
Texas is the only state which has any chance of dividing into smaller states, since the US government explicitly agreed to let Texas eventually divide into five smaller states when it was annexed in the 1800's.
Virtualization is perhaps the biggest driver in failure rates of enterprise drives. When you have several VM's competing for access on the same spindle, you're bound to have a lot more drive wear than an HDD in an laptop running not much more than a web browser.
Organizations seem to get the idea of using Oracle identity management when they're already using Peoplesoft HR. The executives on the administrative/HR side see Peoplesoft/HR as the hammer you should use to do everything, and they often have more clout than the executives on the technology side who see would rather deploy anything else. Nevermind the users who have to put up with frequent login time-outs, account lockouts, and frequent browser restarts. What the users are supposed to be doing, their work is not as important as the goal of "doing everything in one system" which is Oracle/Peoplesoft because that's where employment records are kept.
