Submission + - Steve Jobs warned Obama about being one term presi (huffingtonpost.com) 2

BiggyMcLargeHuge writes: Steve Jobs had warned Obama about how unfriendly the US business environment is. He stated that he was not that impressed with Obama, but even still was willing to help with his ad campaign for 2012. From the article: "You're headed for a one-term presidency," he told Obama at the start of their meeting, insisting that the administration needed to be more business-friendly. As an example, Jobs described the ease with which companies can build factories in China compared to the United States, where "regulations and unnecessary costs" make it difficult for them.

dude... what color is the sky in your world? My family uses skype constantly on a variety of machines without any issues. A few linux machines, several macs, and the rest windows all work together flawlessly.. so I have no idea what cesspool you're wading around in, but over here, everything is hunky-dory and hey.. it's free.

I have to say... I think this is a great idea. I post weekly videos to Youtube and every once in a while will put music to them. The last one I put up had an old 80's song in it, and lo and behold, the next day I received a copyright "notice" that gave me 2 options: 1 - do nothing and have an ad to buy the song via iTunes or Amazon placed at the bottom of the vid while the music was playing, or 2 - dispute it. I have to say that I dont care if they want to put ads because I really am using their property without permission and it's a MUCH better option than having the video completely removed (which I have had happen in the past for an image of a product), or having your account closed.
