I think this sums it up nicely
He's implying that if apple thought it could make a buck off of it, they'd take the option to turn it off out.
I think your ideas are dangerous, so rather than debate them, I think we should just smash your hands to jelly with a masonry hammer.
That will save so much time, and won't hurt me in the slightest.
The point of images with text over them is to provide an expressive context for the words. Words by themselves are dry, with the only indication for tone available the punctuation at the end of the line.
Punctuation is ridiculously limited! There are whole ranges of emotions and nuance that can't be captured with a period or a bang, sarcasm for example! Many times I've watched someone be sarcastic in text and have it totally miss the mark, because they fail to express the tone required to indicate sarcasm!
When we talk face to face, we use nonverbal queues to provide context for the words we are saying, image macros (not junkweb, they're called image macros and have been for years) are the face saying the words, the expression and the nuance, and this makes it so much more engaging than simply typing the words and ending with a period.
They will only have ruined the hardware if they make it impossible for us to flash new ROM into it that allow us to entirely take control of the device.
Yeah, blacks, get to the back of the bus. Don't you know you're breaking the law?
Don't give me none of that 'civil disobedience' crap, you're breaking the law!
Diaspora will never have a broad userbase, because everyone non-technical I've ever talked to about it hated the name and dismissed it on that basis.
No problem. My sons aren't in boy scouts because I believe that bigotry is wrong and I don't want my kids led by people who believe it is right.
It all works out!
I'll admit I didn't read the article. If it comes with a contract they can go fuck themselves.
This assumes I want Xbox Live Gold, right?
My xbox 360 just recently broke, which is a shame because my son was enjoying some of the arcade games I downloaded and it was my only dvd player.
I assure you that I would very much like to have a 99 dollar xbox 360 with a kinetic, the kinetic will go on my computer, the new xbox will play my dvds and arcade games, and microsoft will lose money on me.
There's no downside.
He's not trying to outfit a house. He's trying to outfit an entire amusement park.
The scale is slightly different.
This is tremendously lazy on their part. They could have a group header for things that are 'Netflix Exclusive' populated and propagated in less time than it took me to write this post!
Easy, Netflix could begin financing new films themselves and promoting them, until people begin joining netflix to get at the new series, then staying for the amazing catalog.
Besides, the vast majority of AAA movie titles are garbage anyways, date filler and explosion porn over and over.
I think this is a move in line with Chrome OS. They want to make sure they don't have to pay anyone in order to distribute this as an operating system.
As a proud owner of a CR-48, it IS a nifty little device and Google's first stab out into the desktop operating system realm. It only makes sense for them to rely on their wholly owned solutions rather than entrapping themselves into paying a royalty fee to distribute it.
Whence Chrome OS goes, desktop Chrome will follow, the two are designed to have a completely uniform look, feel, and function, in essence not being two at all but simply different aspects of a single whole.
I would sincerely like to see plastic wrapped bands of living muscles grown in a power plant. A million muscles all pulling levers, turning turbines to produce electric power.
Then, when they're ripe, EAT 'EM.
The same technology could then be used to make robots, a skeletal form with bands of muscle installed. If the muscle becomes damaged, pop them off and eat them, then replace with a fresh, strong band. Imagine an edged weapons sporting event, football with swords, with the used muscle processed and served at a Meet n' Eat the team event post game!
