No, things haven't changed much. The DS and 3DS also have very easy methods of piracy, and that didn't stop either of them from absolutely dominating the handheld market.
I'm pretty sure GP's "piracy dooms systems to obscurity" meme is borne of the oversimplified copypasta about the failure of the Dreamcast.
It wouldn't if people used it correctly.
It begs the question:
Are you being intentionally ironic?
My cousin says he has pictures of bigfoot, but he can't publish him or the government will drag him away to a secret prison under Cheyenne Mountain
And proved you are either anti-freedom yourself or a psychopath - the only types of people who would not instantly see that this is the only logical definition.
"If you don't agree with me, you're obviously crazy."
Yeah, there's the circlejerk event horizon. Nothing left for me to do here, so I'll just let you get back to fapping to your slightly-right-of-Ghenghis-Khan Harpy-queen.
I doubt it'll make much difference in the long run, after seeing how
Maybe after some time, one or two of these new TLDs will get some legitimacy. I expect, though, this will just end up making me spend that much more time updating my check_helo_access and smtpd_sender_restrictions pcre files...
Neither group gives an airborne copulation at a ventrally rotating toroid about "liberty", they just declare their own particular doctrine to be $liberty and then claim the other side is anti-$liberty, which becomes semi-true if you allow for inline evaluation. It's just like the zealous supporters of a certain licensing when they declare that their license is "free as in freedom*" (*using our specially crafted definition of freedom). If that redefinition is rejected, there's nothing on either side but propaganda and bullshit.
And you're still assuming I'm "the right", which is cute.
Both argue that the other mostly want the liberty to tell others how to live. Only the left is correct about that though.
Wow. Okay, now that my irony meter is blown, I'm outta here. Pax.
First depends on what resources you're talking about. There's plenty of worry about the sustainability of quite a few resources, including ones which will likely be further used up in making this robot worker army.
Second, recycling offers neither 100% efficient returns, nor is it free.
Third and fourth are wishful thinking, at best.
It should not come as a surprise to you that some of the most expensive ~350 sq. mi. in the US might not be indicative of the other 3.7 million...
It's interesting that the supporting dialog in Star Trek:TNG reveals most people don't work with technology. Since robots in the ST universe do all the manual labour, it leaves one asking what do all those humanoids produce?
and no, there is no real raw materials constraint
really feels like it makes your argument questionable.
Ah, this is obviously some strange usage of the word 'open' that I wasn't previously aware of.
Freedom of association applies to people not businesses
Then why did you bring up "Freedom of Association" in the first place, since we're talking about two businesses?
Whether its moral or not can be debateable but its never illegal
I never said it was illegal, and I don't care if it is illegal - AFAIC, the US legal system has as much to do with "right vs wrong" as who the next Dr. Who companion is has on the orbit of Neptune.
and the right does it just as often.
If you're trying to make a case for being better than them, the kindergarten playground defense is probably not the best way to go about it.
But apparently boycotts are only oppresive when the left does it ?
You also didn't answer the question of why it's there's no moral (i.e. completely orthogonal to the law) contradiction in using "Freedom of Association" to ostracize and/or deny livelihoods to people who do or believe what you consider to be reprehensible things (as long as they're not religious reprehensible things), and someone else doing the same thing for doing or believing things they find equally reprehensible.
You're the only one talking about "right and left" and oppression. I'm talking about internal consistency, and the all to common lack of it in this position.
