You joke, but it's really incentive for future artists more than former. When they see people working a few years in their youth and then earning royalties into retirement, that's quite the incentive to get into music.
Just ask any musician. They'll tell you they got in it for the money.

The basis for my statement there is simply because I know that XP only asks for a product key and I don't recall in recent history the activation mechanism being particularly strict. Vista/7 seems to start disabling itself after a while without a properly activated key and 8 seems to want an email address to tie your license to (from the one time I played with it out of curiosity). I'm figuring the Vista/7/8 mechanism is just tighter?
Specifically, the Windows client now has USB routing and HDX features and this seems to be absent from their Mac client offerings. With a lot of organizations using IP conferencing (read: Lync), this is becoming a bit of a problem.
If the guy is a suitable candidate to run the firm, it would almost be too perfect
People* don't really remember full urls any more, they just search for the closest and Google sorts the rest.

From what I've understood over the years, it is because those folks emit slightly more carbon dioxide than others and that is what the mosquitoes are attracted to. I, unfortunately, am one of those people. However, I am able to make the claim that "I'm full of hot air" as a result
But to be serious, a mosquito trap basically uses CO2 as bait.
They tried having photo cops on Route 80 in NJ back in the late 80's or early 90's (don't quite remember) and it was simply a camera sticking out of the back of a van. Trip the speed limit, take a photo of the driver, mail summons to person. From what I remember at the time, it caused a bit of an uproar after a few politicians got pictures of them driving with their mistress and the summons envelope being opened by their wife.
Speed enforcement is fine; it keeps people relatively sane with their driving habits. I personally feel that the dangerous ones on the road are the ones who are driving more than 5-10 mph away from the average that everyone else on the section of road is driving. But sometimes you have a clear shot where there is nobody around you and goosing it up several mph to gain some time isn't that big a deal. If an automaton is going to penalize me without any context, that's where I draw the line.
Back in the day (as recent as the late 80s or even early 90s) a lot of downtown Manhattan businesses had multiple phone lines going to every desk at those office high rises. These buildings existed just to house all that equipment, from what I always gathered. While I don't know what it looks like inside today, I'd imagine the technology of today requires only a fraction of that space now.
If it decreases the influence of lobbyists, then yes.
Lobbyists will have to email and thus hopefully get caught by spam filters?
