Comment There can only be one! (Score 2) 126

The reason physical space has any value at all is that there is only ONE of that given space. If / When AR becomes a thing that actually matters, there is zero chance that only one AR 'space' within a physical space exists, making it meaningless if someone took your physical space and used it for whatever they wanted to in AR. No single entity will hold a monopoly over AR 'space'. There would be all sorts of varieties, such as MS, Apple, Starbucks, TPB, you name it. As soon as that 'space' is available to anyone who gives enough of a shit to set up something in an AR, all value it may have held is lost forever.

Well, the market for video media is changing. If they didn't do this or come up with something that raised the competitive bar dramatically, they would just be left in the dust. Whether this is a good or bad thing is another matter. It could cause Netflix to expand its selection - which it really needs to do, it's way to small even at this point - or it may just as easily cut the market for this kind of thing into smaller sections - for example, Netflix having a monopoly over Disney movies or something of the sort.

20" display + 19" display != 39" display, if I'm not mistaken. I'm pretty sure the question is asking for the size of a SINGLE display using all the real estate from active devices in, 4:3 or some other such aspect ratio. - Don't hold it against me if I'm wrong. Blame my poor math skills and the fact that it's getting late.

Takedown Letters For WP7 Tetris Clones 290

karios writes "Today I received a takedown letter from a law firm representing the Tetris Company for copyright violations involving my game Tetrada, which I published on the Windows Phone 7 marketplace. The witch hunt, after hitting Android, iOS and other platforms, continues on Windows Phone 7. It's a pity, since some of the tetromino games in the Marketplace were pretty decent."
