And they support flash too!
Much as I am a fan of open source, isn't that just a variation of the 'broken window' fallacy?
Not really. We are talking about money that will be spent with a closed source application vs a programmer, if the OP was talking about hiring a programmer and installing open source software vs no software then you would be correct.
Have you noticed that this radio executive has unilaterally expanded the definition of "piracy" to include recording a broadcast?
Yeah, this got me too. I guess if I hum a few bars of the latest pop music I'm also engaging in piracy.
So it's the old "sure I kept clubbing him, but you gotta believe me, he resisted arrest twelve minutes before the camera started rolling" defense, eh?
Well, if you apply a little logic that defense seems a lot more probable than 'I was minding my own business doing nothing wrong and the officer started clubbing me.' If there are officers who beat people for no reason then they need to be sent to jail, if there are officers who use excessive force when it isn't needed then they need to be retrained or fired, and when an officer is in a situation which requires force and he uses the proper amount of force he should be commended. We can't make a judgment without seeing the full story and something captured on a cell phone camera won't cut it unless it caught the entire incident.
Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
