For some of us, in other words, forever.
Yeah, I know: hate. It could never be anything less. Nothing terrifies marketing types more than bland indifference.
The Newton never existed.

It's ok so long as it's not a device restricted to only content from iTunes.
So the rampant stock and real estate speculation and over-leveraged banks had nothing to do with it? Well I'll be darn. Here I always thought a stock market crash was caused by, well, an overvalued stock market. Instead apparently it has nothing to do with the stock market at all! Amazing the things you learn.
What is your problem? I never said nothing else was involved, but it is a historical fact that government price fixing (in the US) and foreign nationalism (Europe mostly) lead directly to the great depression. Don't sit there and pretend I said a bunch of other things because it doesn't fit the narrative you need in order to justify your ideology.
My dad and I both worked with those guys you claim are only in my mind. Mostly farm kids who grew up eating cornmeal mush three times a day because that's all their family could afford. Dumb as dirt, largely unable to do even simple math or write a letter, much less create a family budget or figure out how to save money for retirement.
and if they died from malnutrition due to the depression as you said, then this is a complete lie. Which is it? Did they die because life was so bad or did they live and you and your dad made friends of them? I would certainly think death is a qualifier for your later statement.
If you're the type of person who thinks that millions of people facing starvation because it's more profitable to sell the food elsewhere (which has happened repeatedly before governments started stepping in) is acceptable then I doubt that there is a place in civilization for you. This whole "me first, everything for me, greed is good" philosophy is utterly at odds with the ever-expanding sense of community that has created modern civilization.
There you go inventing things I supposedly said or believe in without a shred of evidence. I'm sorry I even bothered with your delusional ass in the first place. Nothing you say can be trusted as you proved that you make crap up as needed right here.
I do not really care if someone is starving because food is being sold somewhere else. That has nothing to do with what was said. History also refutes your premise largely because before government and the infrastructure brought about by it, food did not travel well or keep long and had to be created and sold locally. It is government that created the ability to sell food elsewhere while people around you starve in the first place. Anyways, here is a hint, if it is not yours, you are not entitled to it. If someone wants to sell something 2 thousand miles away and it is theirs, you being 10 feet away is meaningless. If you want it so bad, get off your ass and make it yourself or find another supplier.
Even Google won't provide an sd slot on their Google branded mobile hardware (use the cloud, you sheep!)
Of course nearly every other vendor that bundles Android with a mobile device does. Some, I.e. Acer on their Iconia tablets, even include a USB host connector.
I, too, was worried about Apple using this patent practically. They could even, then, include an SD card/USB port on their iDevices. That would be a bummer, because their infamous lack of connectivity helps in there being more apps in the Play Store.
She or he probably impersonates one. To, you know, effectively troll that particular forum.
(The only person in my immediate family who uses an iDevice is my 12 year old niece. )
There are fairly robust analog workarounds for analog video DRM.
I have an old Dazzle video capture card that pretty much ignores Macrovision. And a newer USB capture device that I was disappointed to discover is affected by Macrovision.
What risk? WIkileaks wasn't going to have him killed.
No, there is no way domestic spying can be allowed, period. Surveillance by law enforcement, subject to judicial review, is not "spying". If you don't know what the terms mean, of course, that may confuse you.
You deserve a longer reply, but I don't have time for one. In brief:
Argumentum ad absurdum
When a company owns it's own stock, who really owns the stock? Think mathematically.
It's not about what the owners should be responsible for, but who the owners should be.
There absolutely is a correlation between being publicly traded and over focusing quarterly returns. It is only a tendency, but it is sufficient to destroy many great companies and hinder our economy as a whole. See "exception that proves the rule".
I don't see "rich guy" as pejorative. I see it as way over-simplified, which was the target I was shooting for. Sorry for the confusion. "Agent of the financial sector", on the other hand, is a highly loaded and biased phrase.
I aspire to become a "rich guy" myself -- not because I'm particularly fond of luxury goods, but because I would like to drastically expand the scope of the philanthropy work that I do.
A good ideal. I don't fault you here, presuming honesty.
The more rich guys there are, the fewer poor guys there are... A rising tide lifts all boats: it's a cliche, but true.
Absolutely false. It's a common excuse, though. Increases in technology, manufacturing efficiency, employment efficiency, and the like do help everyone. Random spending by the wealthy is just as worthless as the pseudo-Keynesian random spending by the government.
Wealth ownership is as a percentage of a whole. Being wealthy is a measure as a percentage. It is a comparison against others. When someone becomes wealthy, they are only rarely increase the size of the pie. Instead, they are re-allotting the financial resources of those who can't manage their resources well, and putting them to more efficient use. Not inherently bad, but we've permitted it to run amok. I don't personally require equality share of wealth (communism, which is inherently unfair and untenable), but it would be nice to see fairness of wealth.

Part of what makes Zip-Strip a useful product is that you can pant it on with whatever size of brush you like.
