Wordpad is basically Write- they more or less just renamed the application for 95.
So basically something we haven't invented the technology for is impossible until the technology is invented.
I'm so shocked.
Gimp is not just not "exactly like photoshop", it's not layed out like any other Windows application. If you're on Mac or Linux is fine, but someone accustomed to Gimp will struggle needlessly with the (incidentally monstrously ugly [to the point of making it difficult to use]) interface. Gimpshop and gimphoto are fine but are several major revisions behind gimp proper.
Google wants to close android in order to keep the manufacturers from closing android further.
Openness advocates are fighting to protect the rights of the manufacturers (that of closing Android)
I'm not sure who to root for here, so I'll just say GO LOCAL SPORTS TEAM
After sending a couple of emails without a response, I received a message (sent to everyone who had pre-ordered I assume) saying they were sorry, and here was some compensation. Unfortunately the compensation was useless — it was a 5% coupon code, only usable in November. Why would I order something from them when I still had no way of knowing I would receive the first thing? Anyway, they promised it would ship "early november". Mid november hit, and I sent another email, with no response. I sent another one, and they just told me, sorry it's backordered. I sent another email asking if there was a reason it was backordered and when I could expect it. Then, insultingly, I received THE SAME form letter telling me it was backordered. The original email they sent was still visible in the reply quote text, but they sent it to me again. I then sent another email complaining about my email not being read. And got no response. I sent another, and four days later received an email saying that the game shipped. I received it last week, but there were no plush toys. Furious, I sent another email outlining how I've been wronged every step in the process and I demand compensation. I sent another, and another. I finally got a response- and it just said, be patient, the game shipped. WELL YES. It shipped. I have it, but the order was NOT COMPLETE. I caution everyone never to shop at the Capcom Online Store, or any Digital River run store again — and I caution Capcom to find a provider that can actually provide the service they promise."
