Comment They are fast approacing that (Score 1) 185

Well, Netflix is fast approaching a 50-50 split of content. The non-Netflix content outside of the US has always been abysmal and it isn't getting better - it is getting worse.

So I guess Netflix doesn't really need to spend more on own content, they simply need to keep spending little on other content and that 50-50 split will soon be reached.

Correct. Assange isn't even wanted for anything in the US. So there is no offer to be made from him. Last - he can't be extradited from Sweden as that would be illegal under Swedish and EU law. However, he should leave Britain since he will not be protected by he EU rules there in a couple of years

Comment Please don't (Score 3, Insightful) 74

Please don't put any apps on the Windows store. That will only make Microsoft more invested in the idea that the store should be the ONLY way to get apps on Windows. MS big dream is to make that happen and have a 30% cut off all software sales.
Don't facilitate that by putting anything on their store.. just don't.

And this is probably the reason behind why Drake's music don't rank at Spotify - since he has an exclusive with Apple, when the song hits Spotify it is old. Any song that is six months old will get lower ranking. It will then had been played to many times on radio and other source's. If he want good ranking on Spotify he should release there at launch.

Gnome cut useful features in the same way that Apple does. And both desktop is therefore a bad choice if you like to customise you desktop to suite you. Now MS are follow suit with Windows 10 so we will soon all be forced others opinions on how a GUI should look down our throats. Personally I think that stinks and that Gnome took a good start and buried in "we know what's best" attitude that I will do better without.

Apparently I live in a place that get colder with global warming. Last July was cold. This was apparently the coldest in over a hundred years. So apparently we get a raw deal here and won't see any warmer summers because off climate change. However, the winters are warmer. Basically we seam to get a new kind off weather were the temperature during summer and winter equalise... That sucks

No. It is not sustainable. All these people saying that the problem is with the "first world" and that the "third world" doesn't have so much ecological impact disregard the simple fact that the people in the third world won't accept there current level of life forever. They will increase their consumption and their ecological footprint. Earth can't sustain more than three billion people living in comfort. There is only two ways - reduce human population to three billion or ALL humans will be forced to live on a third world level.
