So, no, it hasn't, not really.

I guess it's because I left the States before mobiles really took off, but it wasn't until a trip back a couple of years ago that I started to understand the situation--the telcos have done a very good job of enforcing an integrated-vertical/everything-as-a-service model there.
But that's not how it works here (Stockholm). I do happen to have a subscription, basically because it's more convenient and I get a free phone every 2 years for signing up again. But it is entirely possible for you to get a late-model phone made by any of the major manufacturers and working service without talking to anyone at a telco. You can walk into just about any big electronics retailer like MediaMarkt or ElGiganten (or even some of the smaller outfits like TeknikMagasinet or Kjell&Co), buy whatever phone you like, then stop off at the Pressbyrån or 7-11 next to the T-bana station on your way home from the shop and buy a prepaid SIM for it. And I've friends who do just that.
You showed him how to close, but not how to resize or to minimise?
You'll find it on buses and trains in a lot of European cities.
But not in Stockholm, which I think is a bit odd.
OTOH, cheap plans with ample mobile data are readily available here, and even if you can't always get 3G the bandwidth is still pretty good, even in the subway--they apparently have repeaters installed in the tunnels.
Merely claiming "A is just like B" does not a valid analogy make.
I am aghast at the notion that there's a country where it does cost money. It's simply unconscionable.
Why is it, I wonder, why diatribes about "leftists" always seem to go hand-in-hand with the inability to distinguish it's and its?
Everything. And at some level, society needs to be built around facilitating and accommodating business.
I don't know what you think you're espousing, but in reality it's one of: (a) corporatocracy or (b) fascism.
Especially since EVERYBODY knows that this SURELY goes all the way back to WHITEWATER!

We had nothing to do with Li'l Boosie getting out! Word of honour.

"9 out of 10 Slashdot ACs we surveyed could not tell the difference between UBUNTU GNOME and a dead crab."
I was not offering a value judgement. I was merely stating facts.
FWIW, I have more than a decade of experience using both languages, have written well-received books on both of them, and I like and dislike each of them for various reasons.
Wow, I am so intimidated by the towering intellect of your response.
90% of the stuff you post consists of the following:
PUDGE: [Posts something that any reasonable person would see as implying X]
OTHER: [something based on X]
PUDGE: I didn't say X! [See, I'm so clever!]
I expect such games from a 4-year-old. Coming from an alleged adult, they're just dishonest and tiresome.
Who pays for the "privilege" of doing something the device is already entirely capable of doing? I sure as hell don't.
They argue that "Brown did not 'transfer' the stolen information as he arguably would have done had he embedded the link on his web page, but merely created a path to files that had already been published elsewhere that were in the public domain."
Non sequitur. The means by which he shared the link is immaterial. If they meant, "as he arguably would have done had he hosted the linked files on his server", then that's what they should have said.
