Current Ubuntu user here as well.
I'm all for this too... but in a ***separate*** shopping lens.
Even Stallman said so:
"[To protect users' privacy] is easy: all it takes is to have separate buttons for network searches and local searches, as earlier versions of Ubuntu did."
Goddamn, having shopping result when I am searching for local files is not only a privacy issue... it is damnright annoying.
No, it won't be open source.
From the wikipedia page:
Jolla said that mobile phone manufacturers (e.g. Nokia, Samsung etc.) will be able to license and use Sailfish on a phone, just like Android. Similar to Windows Phone, it is also not open source.
Although not directly related to coffee, there is a very interesting TED talk from Jojanna Blakley that touches this exact point. She compares the fashion industry, in which there are pratically no copyright law or intellectual property, to the entertainment industry where this is heavily overblown.

I got really curious now! I work mostly with C and GCC, and I would really like to know your technique to log the function calls, arguments and return value! I really can't think of a way of doing this without using a lot of macros, that would make the code unreadable... Would you mind giving me an insight? Thanks!
Not so fast! There is a problem with the analisys. Check the first graph: The 123456789 password appears twice (in the 4th position and in the last shown position). This is a blasphemy to my true nerd beliefs.
Some people are also questioning if the home lens (the default lens to make any local search) is the right place to integrate these remote searches to third party services. In theory, amazon could gather information about every file you search, every program you launch through the lens, and such. There is even a bug report, marked as confirmed, questioning this very thing.
Commenting here, as my finger slipped and I wrongly modded this as Troll. Gosh, I am a human, give me an option to remoderate my miskates, you silly slashdot!
Newsworth? I don't know. But absolutely Awarenessworth! Currently, more and more people are releasing their own music and videos under the CC licenses for our own free enjoyment, and also it's one of the greatest forces we have against the ever increasing stupidity of the big labels.
I am losing a couple moderation points already spent in this discution, but I had to post.
I am not quite young anymore, but personally never had any inclination for owning music, but I always liked radio and streaming services. After discovering Pandora, I fell in love imediatelly. I listen to Pandora almost exclusively nowadays during my commutes and free time, but due to licening issues, Pandora's streaming was blocked for listeners outside the US a few years ago.
Since I am not american, I have to subscribe to a VPN service ($7 per month) that I use almost exclusively to listen to it. So for me, Pandora costs $7 per month, with ads, and Pandora itself never sees a cent of this money. I'd rather pay directly to Pandora and support the service, but the rules doesn't allow me too, and my greed inner bastard refuses to pay $7 + $4 for the complete ad-free international streaming solution.
This is the thing that really worries me in these cloud-based services in general. You are giving away a little part of the control and power you have of your consumption in exchange for (questionably) more convenience and better service. And inevitably, sometimes it's exactly this little amount of the control you have conceded that comes back to bite you in the ass.
Ask slashdot time: Why is it that Pandora is forbidden to stream internationally, but other services like Songza do it at will and with no ads whatsoever?
This method detected a single corrupted picture.
Probably my pictures were the least affected of all my data.
Thanks for the great idea.
Sorry, but I can't stand anymore the Paladin of the party insisting on replacing the HD for a tried and true Bag Of Holding.
Thanks for the tip anyway.
