Sorry. I guess I left out all the indications it should be sarcastic and stupid and there-by negating most grammar rules.
I'll work on that for next time.
Thank you for pointing it out Grammar Police
We should only allow clear plastic clothes and boxes/cases, all building and vehicles should be completely transparent. That way it's not possible to conceal anything. That would make everyone safer and be much gooder.
You shouldn't be able to listen to them... you shouldn't be able to listen to anyone. Try doing your job the old fashioned way... outsmart them.. stop trying to take short cuts at the expensive our our rights and liberties...
But hey.. that's just my opinion
It was rhetorical, but thanks..
What if I don't want their connected/desktop search... what if I just want an operating system?
IF people didn't pirate the content, you would sell it for cheaper??
I may have been born at night, but it wasn't last night....
She has big enough balls I guess we can call her the "Teflon Don". But hey.. at least she knows "Cyber" Security.. and how to maintain the safety and security of Americans both inside and outside the US.
We keep hearing about this... it's clear that Microsoft doesn't care. I don't understand why people are so shocked by that concept.
Someone in the Government who has a clue... AND is speaking out.
I think I may faint.
Google changed it's logo yet again......
Happens so often.. how is this news anymore?
No it doesn't... the dongle isn't just checked.. it contains a function or functions that are integral to the program.. The program will not function without the dongle. If you remove the check you remove the critical functions. The only real way around that is to write a program that emulates the Dongle in all aspects. It works well..but you're stuck with supporting users who've had dongles go bad, get lost/stolen, or won't work with their system for some reason.
True.. but in all honest.. I was never totally enamored with the netflix service... it was nice.. but other then the 2 month delayed new releases it didn't really have much for me anyways. But once again.. that's just me.
So $17.99 a month (with BlueRay) is $216 a year... They don't have enough new movies available that I want to watch ever month to make it work $18 a month. For $9 a month I can get HBO/Showtime from my cable company
Wait did you just argue that HBO/Showtime (@ $108 per year for those keeping score) is "good value" while netflix is "bad value" @ $216 (with unlimited streaming and bluray/dvd service).
I've had HBO, and its not half as good as good as netflix. So even at half the price its still not better value.
If Netflix was using that increase to payoff the ISPs to get their traffic excluded from the caps it might be worth it.
I see you are not a fan of net neutrality.
or rent a On Demand movie (when I can find one I want to watch for $6.00).
So if you watch 3 movies on-demand a month, you break even with netflix. On-demand only is good value if you barely watch movies at all.
1) Yes.. I am saying FOR ME.. HBO/SHOWTIME is a better value based on MY USAGE.. I'm sure it is true for some other people, but certainly not everyone.
2) I am a HUGE fan of net neutrality.. Net Neutrality doesn't have anything to do with Service Caps on your service. It is about blocking or rate limiting traffic based on source, type, etc. A ISP has every right to cap a customer, so long as it's agreed to in the TOS... as much as I don't like that... if Net Neutrality ever passed it would prevent ISP's from blocking or intentionally degrading say only netflix or Amazon Video Services.
Right now I have a service cap at home.. which I routinely brush up against.. if Netflix was paying my ISP to allow their traffic to be sent to their customers without being counted against the cap it would definitly be worth it (TO ME) to pay $18/month just not to have to worry about it.
3) you are absolutely correct about OnDemand. I would become much more choosy about the movies I watched... which might not be a bad thing for me.
