Do two eyes watching it count as a public performance?
It should be enough to handle the vast majority of the Xbox Live/Playstation Network type games though. I think that would be the niche they need to aim for, not the next Call of Assassin's Effect Yearly Sequel 43.
I think convincing devs to port to it will be the hardest thing for them, though. I'll wait and see before buying.
All this App-Store shenanigans, and yet time and again, developers refuse to port stuff to Android for fear of some extra work (fragmentation). Hitching your wagon to such an unstable horse seems awfully dangerous for a business model.
It's to give you something to do while you're unable to play Sim City. Genius!
Is there a scroocrosoft.com domain? No. Therefore, Microsoft isn't scrooing anyone! Duh.
But, but, making kids learn to use a different product?? That is just Ka-Razy! Kids need to only know one product and that is all. Why, if they learn to navigate menus in too many different applications, they're liable to go and use something that doesn't make me money!
It's been a long while since I left the tech-support field, but that was one of my biggest pet peeves. Far too many people, who's job is to use a computer, just learn "Hit Alt-F, S, type document.doc, press Enter" and do not truly know what saving a file is, how to use a file/directory structure, etc. Drop another program in front of them, and they are completely helpless.
To Apple's credit, they have received 0 reports from users of this crash. So, it can't be that important, right?
And that's why non-contract services like Ting are going to become more popular. I was paying $150/month for me and the wife's phones with Sprint (cheapest 'round here at the time) plus $100 for the phone that was on sale.
I switched to Ting, and the highest my bill has been is $60, average $30, plus ~$200 for a simple Android phone. So take your "subsidized" phones and shove 'em. I now just turn on the hotspot on my phone and use a Nexus 7 for everything. I don't need a super-powerful phone when I've always got my N7 with me.
Show me a case where someone was indeed sentenced to 35 years + $1 million. It's the theoretical maximum that CAN be applied. The entire judicial process is a negotiation. Prosecutors start at the max, defense lawyers start at the minimum, and they try to come to some middle ground.
The only way he'd get the maximum is if he defied the court's orders, refused to cooperate in any way, spit on everyone at the courthouse, went on the run, and more.
Here's the story of one woman trying to get a 42nd trimester abortion. It's out there if you open your eyes.
The important thing to remember here, though, is
Yes! YOU MUST! That is the only way! Aren't you listening?? There are not and there will never be paper books. Do it NOW!!
Amazon and Nook make their reader apps available on a myriad of devices, PC, Mac, tablets, phones, etc. So, you could open a collection of books on just as many devices as you want. Even the same book on two different pages!!
Look up references without typing? Well, you still have to look? That's just a weird qualifier. Hitting a search button and typing a reference word isn't that complicated compared to flipping to the index, then back to the needed page.
Paper books have several sizes? How many books make editions with a dozen font sizes (times a dozen different fonts)? You pretty much get standard and large print for old folks. I want my books in Comic Sans 30pt, dammit! Show me a Harry Potter book in that font.
All your arguments are pointless, coming down to personal preference. And that's just fine. Neither is going away. All you folks arguing here have fallen for this article's stupid premise that there can be only one. Linux isn't the only computer OS. White isn't the only wall paint. And a Prius isn't the only car available. Different stuff for whatever suits you. Relax.
