I'm glad for you. I tried Amazon Fire TV stick and it sucks pretty bad - making me suspicious of Amazon's competence at software. Didn't even try Echo.
Oh, and UK is still rolling in wealth and riches it stole from India.
Music copyright trials are rare, but allegations that a song copies another artist’s work are common. Singers Sam Smith and Tom Petty recently reached an agreement that conferred songwriting credit to Petty on Smith’s song, “Stay With Me,” which resembled Petty’s hit “I Won’t Back Down.” Other music copyright cases include Former Beatle George Harrison's 1970 solo song "My Sweet Lord" which had a melody heavy with echoes of "He's So Fine," the 1962 hit from The Chiffons. The copyright owner sued Harrison. A judge said that while the tunes were nearly identical, Harrison was guilty only of "subconscious plagiarism." Harrison would eventually pay out $587,000. Probably the most bizarre case of mucial infringement was when John Fogerty was accused of stealing from John Fogerty. The Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman was sued for his 1985 solo song "The Old Man Down the Road" because his former label thought it sounded too much like the 1970 Fogerty-penned "Run Through the Jungle," a song it owned the rights to.
No. He works for a VC firm. But to know that, you'd have to RTFA!
That is only if you want to get on the treadmill of Wall Street. One can conceivably run a small company without trying to squeeze every last dollar possible, and earning customer good will.
Well, it may not be killing, but Chinese government harassed followers of a religion/cult Falun Gong because they had a different faith! How is it different from killing for religion?
I'm not sure if that's a genuine page or just setup to satisfy some regulatory requirement. I am on AT&T cellular and not connected to Wifi, but it still keeps giving me bs that I'm connected to Wifi, and asks me to disconnect and refresh.
Great now, tell me how do I do the same with some other binary log file!
I have a picture that my friend sent me through Whatsapp and I would like to share it through Gmail. Pray tell me how that "works" on iOS?
Look at the hypocrisy in this thread. Everybody is outraged that MS is moving jobs outside the country, while making their profits there! So you need the rest of the world to pay you but they shouldn't get anything back? And you guys go preaching the world about how to live! Fucking hypocrites!
It doesn't hurt iPhone sales, at least not by much. People will adapt to it - by putting a hard case or whatever else required. You must remember that more than half of iPhone buyers are not buying because they objectively evaluated it and judged it to be the best phone they can have. They buy it because it is THE thing to have. So what if it has problems, as long as there is a solution (may be even better if Apple makes an expensive, really expensive) case, it will become even more aspirational. "I'm soo rich I can afford not just the phone, but also this case"!
Slashdot's system works because there is not much at stake here apart from people's egos or opinions. If businesses depended on comments on slashdot, I think we'd find way more trolls and mod points for sale. The problem would be in a different league altogether.
I am from India. And you don't know shit if you say US has the most...... any kind of people!
I agree with your logic of all kinds of people etc though.
They don't need to take on Intel and x86. They just need to make a profit on each system sold.
You do realize that these things are not like a boutique where each unit is independent, right? They have to sell x million to break even and more millions to make decent profits out of that.
And, even then they still have to compete with Intel & x86, to keep those sales from drying up, so they can keep the business alive for the next year and the year after...
