Does it take into account the son that wants to run a Minecraft server?
Uhm, that was the ENTIRE point of the analysis. So yeah I think it took that into account
TFS says "upgrading an extra PC..."
Does Gates not know about Python? Python IMO is a whole lot easier to learn than BASIC ever was and you can do a lot more with it.
They are both turing complete languages. So what can you do in Python that can't be done in BASIC?
Slap a few libraries on ANY language and you get do anything in less lines of codes. That's what libraries are for.
False dilemma. Profit seeking capitalists have done far more good for the world than philanthropists.
I'm going to go down to my local Carnegie Library and look that up...
Consider the facts, and ask yourself: are you willing to let them get away with this?
They can get away with it, as long as they bring me my Breakfast Mountain Dew
Bullshit, of course you're deceiving them. You cannot expect normal human beings to question all their assumptions 24/7.
In some circumstances you ARE supposed to question them. And that is the whole point. Its one thing when the secretary assumes the printer guy is the printer guy, its another when its the guard at the front door.
Stop falling for the propaganda (aka P.R.) there is no such thing as I.P. it was created to fool people into merging all concepts into 1 generic term for the benefit of the industry. In addition, it is called Property when it is not property or even tangible!
Don't be circular in your definition. It is called "property" because it is something you own. In the case of copyright, you own the right to copy, and in patent you own the right to use the process. Just because you don't like the name doesn't mean it shouldn't be used.
Publishers should be able to price their product at whatever levels they want.
You are right. But publishers shouldn't be able to specify the price the middle sales to the public.
eBooks are 100% about convenience, and 0% about price
For you maybe. I like my ebook because it is convenient, and when I bought it, ebooks were cheaper. Then Apple decided to screw the customers over.
I've already payed several hundred dollars for the convenience when I purchased my reader. I don't also need to pay that for each book
don't forgot you also loss the convenience of reselling your book
I don't think that eBooks really should cost much less than print book.
I guess it depends on your definition of "less"
I can get mass market paperbacks from B&N for 10% off the cover price. So I refuse to pay more than 10% off the cover price for an ebook. Yet ebooks are routinely equal to or more than the mass market paperback. Thanks to Apple
The big winners (from me at least) in this fiasco were independent authors. As that is pretty much all I read right now.
Who in their right mind would want every company/web site to know all of the intimate details of what they're doing on every other web site?
Most people would not want that.
But most people don't care. First of all most people don't even know, or consider what is actually happened. Secondly it is convenient for most people. And thats pretty much why it will continue.
