There are plenty of people making money offering cloud provisioning/services. This is more along the lines of: Dell accepted 2 billion dollars of cash infusion from Microsoft. Dumping open stack and not building ChromeOS or linux boxes is part of the agreement terms I suppose. Open stack has been fairly successful and the vendors who seem to be dropping support for it are to entertain ways of making more money in licensing.
This is what a two billion dollar cash infusion buys? They are the new Nokia apparently.
I never used the word stealing, nor have I ever considered the use of Napster theft. in this particular case MS is making it impossible (not even optional) for the creator or distributor to get any form of return whatsoever for their efforts on YouTube. It shows zero goodwill to the many artists who are directly trying to make a living, by making and providing the content that you are choosing to view. They are not all RIAA and MPAA juggernauts. Watch or don't watch ads, that is up to you, but not having the option whatsoever to support these people is poor form by Microsoft and in the long run you are just leeching and enjoying the labors of the content creators efforts. If Google made an app that let you have full access to XBox Music, for free I would expect that MS would likely want it pulled from their store.
They are legally obligated to prevent downloads, and Microsoft is directly preventing the content creators from earning a thing for their efforts, as well as costing Google money to stream with no potential revenue stream in return. The application is flagrantly defying the terms of service for YouTube. I wouldn't be surprised if lawsuits were forthcoming by concerned parties/content creators.
Don't forget the content creators earn money through those advertisements. Essentially bypassing the ads, rips of the artists directly (if you can call YouTube creators that) and cost Google money directly for streaming for free. I can't imagine the RIAA and the MPAA are looking at Microsoft with warm regards at this moment either. This is Napster territory.
Completely incorrect. Apple/Microsoft and Google all want your money and data and patience. Data is in many ways more valuable than money. FYI AOSP code is open source pull out the parts you don't like and make the OS suit your purposes. There are many ROMs out there that are doing somethign similar Cyanogen to an extent and or replicant. The world doesn't need an armchair RMS, nor do they owe it to do the work for you since you are completely unwilling to offer effort, time or money or data to make what you are demanding.
It would be a near impossibility for hardware/chipset/radio manufacturers to release open source drivers for their hardware (at least in America). It hampers the ability to upgrade these devices at your your discretion and hands it over to the manufacturers, and OEM's and carriers. The same driver issues have hobbled Linux adoption and sometimes feasibility for years. The alternative would be to never release anything and let only the closed source people who could care less about open own the whole mobile stack.
The comment you made was about how Apple will save the world by building an iHUD device that shames the unreleased beta of Google Glass. Putting iPhones in a bucket and Androids in another doesn't even remotely relate to what Google Glass will be. Apple quite clearly sucks at the cloud and this is heavily cloud/messaging/Google Now centric. I want Apple to build a good quality one of these and force the technology forward but iPhone 4 support is not related to this very much. It is
/. .. Otherwise I wouldn't have been such a rude bastid in my comment. Cheers mang. enjoy the day.
Damn beat me to the comment. At least it serves dual roles.
haha... iggymanz... OK LARPER's aside... when did
/.'ers become so scared about what other people think about what they are wearing? If you're genuinely secure in your own self, that confidence attracts women much more than your safe and acceptable iPhone does. To all those internet tough guys aka Anonymous Cowards preaching violence for seeing a person wear something they don't approve of: Each and everyone of you is a pathetic little insecure bitch. Can't even stand up behind your own comments and you want to be the guy stomping a nerd in real life for daring to have the balls to wear what he wants? First off, you aren't interesting. You are pathetic little cowards scared of what people think of you. You would make for a horrible subject to film. That is what actually pisses you off that nobody cares about you or your sad little insecure AC lives.
Let's see. No facts, no logic, no effort, no point? You're just making it obvious you have a blatant lack of anything to add to the discussion, and added it anyway. I did that as a child, and my Uncle pointed this out to me: that just because you can speak doesn't mean you have anything to say. You might do well to learn that. I assume you're older than I was (pre Kindergarten).
This is a HUD combined with wearable computing and cloud syncing using Linux/Android as an OS and
/. of all places can't think of something more interesting to say "You will look stupid using these". Or "I'd punch anyone wearing Google glass 'cos there is a camera in those things too. If you cannot see past your own vanity or that this might be more than a camera, then honestly you have no right to call yourself a nerd. Seriosu
These are "glasses" in the basest of terms only. If you cannot think of a reason outside of their vision and vanity associated with it that someone might wear one of these then you should hand in your geek card at the door on the way out. Your comment is about as reasonable as dismissing the idea of a bulletproof vest because you aren't cold.
So if I bought this I would have to pay a monthly fee to have XBOX gold so I can play online (the only way to play online) plus always on DRM even for games that are local and single player only. On top of this they wil have a store to sell me music, and videos ( I assume with the same always on DRM) and will be making extra money from that? Well I gave my XBOX 360 away for reasons similar to to, but more benign than this. Looks like i can avoid future news on this money grabbing sinkhole of greed.
