And coal is a common good. You can import it from an other country without consequence to the quality. Just add shipping costs.
They should include Dr evil "$100 billion dollar". Just add a bit of inflation and this superevil way of thinking is not so far off.
Yes, I can come up with a thousand free market answers. And yes, that pretty much answers your question.
Would you buy a vehicle from any company whatsoever if you knew that parts were difficult to acquire? A manufacturer can play a game with parts availability only if they don't plan to stay in business.
Maybe we should go back to renting our phones from ATT as well.
Asking money for a service would be fine. The simple checkbox is not free. Dell even failed to deliver linux because of the support issues. Linux is also free.....
There are people who sell download links to popular open source software. They charge you for the service Of provinding hosting/pointing to the download.
The cost might be minimal, or might be exceptional (monthly fee of 20$ or so). That clearly is a violation of the trademark.
The mozilla/firefox trademark says you can provide a service, BUT "You must provide a prominent statement that (i) the Mozilla product is available for free and link directly to our site; (ii) the purchase, download, or acquisition of your service is separate from the download of the Mozilla product; and (iii) your service is not affiliated with Mozilla."
I cannot find firefox from dell from my current location, but I bet dell is not very clear about this that this is a service. If that was the case no issue was brought up.
They do sell "firefox installation" 17 $/pound... firefox laptop of firefox t-shirt or firefox installation.... i do not see a difference....
Vapourware is a bit harsh. There were delays, and the end result is not the miracle hardware that some people expected for $100, but they did make and ship the hardware, controllers and create an app store that had games in it. They were also up front about the Ouya hardware, and people were free to consider whether or not they thought it was good enough for a cheap small games console.
Can you use the Ouya controller with your Nexus 7? It is a standard Bluetooth controller, yeah?
The devices run Android, and thus gain from being able to play Android games.
Ouya has its own app store where games that are optimised for the Ouya are sold. By optimised, I mean more than just targeting the hardware, but also how it is used - controller on a TV, rather than touch-screen device.
As you can imagine, this can be quite hit and miss. Additionally, the Ouya hardware fell behind the market fairly quickly because of its use of a Tegra 3 which is actually quite poor in terms of graphical power. A Tegra 4 iteration should do a lot to fix this, although a Tegra K1 would be most optimal.
If Apple cared about this market, they would stick an A7 in the next Apple TV and thrash the Ouya senseless with superior hardware, and their app store and developer mindshare (everyone would optimise their iOS games for the Apple TV fairly rapidly).

That might be an option.... But that processor would have to be build in into the protocol. Not some website where you would have to deposit your (BC) money, you should only risk the transaction fee.
Beside that I can think of 3 modes.
-Reputation monitor, just like you check e-bay reputation or some BTC website WOT reputation. ( I bet this is feasible very simple, but it would double the transaction log. )
-3th party processer that can validate your transaction... but only risking the processing fee.
-Reversible transaction. If some goods are bought that are also reversible, reversible transaction give little trouble.
You see, by using a escrow service, or someone to investigate the transaction ( tricky, since there is no interface to confirm you own a address) you are introducing a central point of authority again. Just like Mt gox. Would it not be great if the reputation of the receiver of money was maintained at the same time.
Forget the "non"anonymity of bitcoin. The problem is: every transaction becomes final. No reverse.
If i buy a apple, give a (real) coin, i expect a apple in return. If i do not get the apple, I will hold the counter party responsible. (e.g. beat him up/ call the police / etc etc.)
Now the counter party becomes the entire bitcoin public. I give a (fraction of) a bitcoin.... and I fail to get the apple. Now who do i beat up? Who do i call for? How do I tell that the reputation of the apple-seller is bad?
That is where there is no counterparty in the bitcoin protocol. bitcoin only keeps track of the bitcoin transaction, but looses track of the counter-part of the transaction.
For fiat money you can call someone (cop) to mediate the bad outcome of the transaction. For bitcoin you are lost. The coin transaction is deep down in the chain.
That is where the idea of counterparty is born, some way of 2-way commit, or reputation system for party that receives the coin transaction.
...it seems likely that the ARM Architecture License the Intel acquired in the Digital takeover/litigation mess also transferred to Marvell.
In the case of the TS, there was a report from NASA that says at page 15 that even at full power with depleted power vacuum brake assist, you can still get the car to stop by braking. And they showed it.
As for your argument of burnout, this is ussuassy done with the hand-brake, that only brake at the rear tires only.
You can get in problems with brakes if you let then run too hot, descending from a hill is a known example of this.
