Consider someone who stood inside France and shot an arrow into Germany. That arrow strikes a Kraut and kills them. Did the murder occur in France or in Germany?
If it isn't a crime in France to launch arrows at other people, then maybe Germans should just stand back from the border.
If your intent was to hit a proper archery bullseye but your aim was wildly off, there never would have been intent to shoot an arrow at other people. So if it's not a crime to be an amateur archer in France, then no crime would have been committed?
Your government is the entity that bound you by the laws of other countries when it signed various extradition treaties. Fortunately, your government insisted on not binding you to laws that didn't have a parallel in your own country, so it's not the case you can be extradited for, say, violated Ireland's blasphemy laws.
I still don't see why this case is morally or legally unique, such that it's a precedent in any sense. MacKinnon isn't being extradited to fix computers, he's being extradited to answer for crimes committed that we'd have no problem seeing him jailed for had he been in New York when he committed them.
For all of the politics around it, I love my iPhone. I have jailbroken previous iPhones and enjoyed the benefits, but my current one is operating as Apple designed it because I didn't gain enough from jailbreaking to make it worth the effort.
I'm happy with the apps I have, I'm happy with the 3G and regular phone service, I'm happy with the UI, Google Maps integration, iPod, call history and phonebook, don't need multitasking.. I just use it, and it just works, better than any phone I've had before-- including an unholy Motorola/Microsoft abomination. Out of so many millions sold, funny to think that I'm the only one.
Sure, I guess I wish it could multitask or do those other things I don't really need. I wish it was more open. But I'm happy with it. Maybe my next phone will be something else.. or maybe the competition will make Apple improve too.
Maybe I'm just getting old.
Pan's Labyrinth is a marvelous fable. The eye-candy is secondary. All I've seen is snippets of Hellboy, which is standard action-movie fare.
But on Pan's Labyrinth alone I'm willing to give the credit. No one can create something with that much depth in meaning, character, and visuals on a fluke.
Maybe his stuff isn't that great in translation? Especially when he's working in translation, like Hellboy.
it's like the marvel/disney wedding: we know we might only get sparkling shit which only lifeless nerds will consider a masterpiece whilst flooding the imdb with yet another 10 (that's very manichean for a self proclaimed intelligent person btw) so that the top-250 gets even messier.
why don't you just play in your microwave ovens?
The problem with your idea is that we are running out of certain natural resources. It will however be interesting to see (assuming I'm reincarnated enough times or something) what happens with the upcoming ice age.
When will these people stop trying to change definitions. Broadband is a technology not a speed. All DSL is broadband, but ethernet and (most) cable is not even though they can offer higher speeds than ADSL.
You have that exactly backwards. Broadband is speed, not a technology. Ethernet is broadband. In fact, Ethernet's bandwidth (literally the width of the band of electromagnetic spectrum it uses) is MUCH broader than DSL and Cable. That is why Ethernet is unsuitable for long cable runs (and thus unsuitable for "the last mile" of internet distribution). High frequencies face "attenuation" from long cables because of "inductance".
