Normally, I'd line up behind the MS bashing, but I think in this case google is super annoying regarding API access. Why doesn't MS have the tools necessary to make a youtube app that works according to the terms and conditions? Failing that, why hasn't google provided one? Just to shaft microsoft on both counts I suspect. And that's kindof annoying. Are they afraid of a little compeition for android? I don't personally feel like WP8 is anything to worry about... but if so, why do they appear so worried?
I think 98% of all deaths in the house are more likely to be the shower. I'm presuming you meant 98% of untrained firearms deaths. The stats for cops are more like a third, but that's the only one I can think of off the top of my head. Where are you getting this number anyway?
I haven't seen it, but this almost certainly works like captive portal wifi gateways. It'll spoof a 302, redirect your browser to a local WAN page with the warning, and then surfing will continue as usual. I expect the comcast rep simply didn't know the lingo.
You do get name, city name, and zip... you do not get an address. That's simply false.
it was either that or a depression.
How do you know that?
seems like a colossal waste of money -- they'll eventually come around to ipv6 and just throw this out... right?
proxy it and sign it with their government ca cert? start their own root servers? who cares. it won't even slow them down though.
I didn't mean the virus literally evolve autonomously, although I'd be shocked if something like that *didn't* exist. I was simply speaking metaphorically since the OP had simile-ed before me.
It's much much worse than that... A human virus has to get really lucky and accidentally evolve features necessary to bind to our receptor sites. Virus authors, on the other hand, can use virustotal.com to see who can detect their stuff and evolve as necessary to avoid detection.
If they're using the app, yes, I should get paid, or they shouldn't be using the app.
Presumably because the arrangement of ones and zeros took hours of someone's life... they should really get paid for that. Aside from the lotto winners (angry birds, etc) the vast majority of developers make less than minimum wage off the apps. I have one that's sold close to a thousand copies and I'm still only at about $5.50/hour. So while stealing is clearly the wrong word (since you didn't deprive me of anything); copyright infringement applies and you should really feel pretty guilty -- particularly if you find my app useful.
Many I miss WebOS. But I gave up and just started using Android. It's not nearly as good, but it's better in the way italian is better than latin.
Actually, I think what the OP did was right. Assumed X and made conclusions from it. That's the only unambiguous way to name the fallacy imo. I'm saddened by the loss of begging the question, that's all.
Hey, this is logical fallacy is called "begging the question." The term you can't use anymore because everyone will think you mean "raising the question."
I wish this would go ahead and get popular, work, or be useful: http://tos-dr.info/
