No, it's now "With an IOS device". The phone related patent was claimed a few years back by a competitor, but clearly should not apply in Apple's case..
H.265? "H.265 is said to double the data compression ratio compared to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC at the same level of video quality"
The software obviously wasn't ready when the probe launched. They needed nine more years to develop it. Had they waited, the probe wouldn't be near the comet in time. So it's a rather smart decision.
Yeah, better kill the ones that have a good life in nature as well, these animals must sure be darn tasty.
Sure, until the DNS steering comittee becomes headed by the representatives of Iran, North Korea, Pakistan and Jemen.
There is a larger market for Firefox in Windows Metro users than in Linux desktop users. Heck, the installed base of Windows 8 is larger than all Mac OS flavors combined. So why keep developing for these inferior audiences and ignore the big fish? This smells like anti-MS propaganda.
I remember implementing tel:// uri's which could be clicked by the user, which would then run a phone dialer. Somewehere around 2003, though it was not on a 'mobile device' but on windows boxen. I may still have the source code.
The only area I can image this technology to be succesful in is surveillance. I really hate all the electronic snooping, sniffing and profiling. Can we please have a revolution?
"Water table depletion"
This is a nice reason to go back to the moon for a mission to collect the remains of this 15 ton meteorite.
Given the toll on our highways shown to arise from distracted drivers, is this responsible corporate behavior to protect their product, or an unethical endangering of lives?
I'm glad the this is a neutrally worded question. I've got a similar one. Given the massive breach of our childrens online privacy, do you think underages should be free to visit whatever smut they want on the internet, or is it better to have the ISP install filters for all our safety?
Saudi's have it nowhere as bad as the North Koreans. Look up the Kaechon prison:
(wikipedia) ".. anyone found guilty of committing a crime, which could be as simple as trying to escape North Korea, would be sent to the camp along with that person's entire family. The subsequent two generations of family members would be born in the camp and must also live their entire lives and die there."
Now THAT is a brutal regime. And if you ask me, it's China's responsibility to step in before too many people have died.

I'm sure you can somehow change your DNS cache to flush immediately.
Run a local DNS server on the same machine for extra points. I bet the cheat authors will respond by implementing their own DNS lookup.
I am a consumer. I have lots of rights or Steam wouldn't be allowed to take my money. I don't care about their terms when they are illegal. If they think they can take drastic measures they'd better be well prepared for consumer watchdog hell to be unleashed. Especially for a service which is rumored to bring in over a billion dollar in yearly revenue.
