Bring in Dogfish Head!
There is an American microbrewer who has already worked with molecular archaeologists to re-created several ancient brews, which they later sell. Like this one:
I've tried several. Unusual, but interesting. Good stuff! And what the hell is science good for anyway if not for re-creating ancient beer?
How much ...
... of this 'lost' IP is in the form of faux Oakleys?
Quite right. Because there are no other possible form factors.
It would be quite impossible to manufacture a touchscreen half-top - a laptop where the keyboard 'half' is shorter than the screen "half" and that allowed itself to be opened 180 degrees so the whole thing could lie flat on the coffee table. Nope. Can't be done.
It would be quite impossible to manufacture a pad-like thing that had a slide-out keyboard like my phone. Nope. Can't be done.
Yup. We've completely exhausted all possibilities.
Now where's that irony tag?
Not to mention ...
... being able to recalibrate to destroy all of those those nasty incoming comets!
Let Them Eat Cake
Pffft! Just store everything in the cloud. There. That's sorted then.
+1 on Jonathon Coulton!
Enjoyed several of his songs on youtube a year or two ago. Went to his site and bought a few of the MP3s.
Surely the Carry On films are the height of British cinema?
"Accountable ... *and* abide by the law?"
Oh! So basically your dog then?
Heh. I can hear Clarkson now:
"We're sorry. We apologize. We were wrong. Turns out the Mexicans are actually quite full of feck."
More of an own-goal in Meg's case.
Work for Hire?
In other venues I believe the schedule is produced as a 'work for hire' and owned by the league, conference, or sporting authority which has an interest in making it freely and widely available.
The schedule monkeys cash their cheque for producing the schedule. That's the end of their rights.
Intercourse, Pennsylvania. Not too far from Bird In Hand and Blue Ball! All three of which are located in Lancaster county of Amish fame.
There is actually a nice wine shoppe in the center of town. I know because my wife made me stop right in the middle of Intercourse and run in for a bottle!
(Mine's the one with the sneaky butler!)
Moi exploit? Never!
Geez! It's not like I could sell you a game with built-in advertising where I also make money selling your personal information to people who could wait until you are a famous celebrity before they inform the world just how many different 'penis enlargement pill' ads you clicked on.
Oh wait? It *IS* like that, isn't it?
I don't understand the problem. We should most certainly teach both in school; Evolution should be covered in Science class, whilst Creationism could be covered in any Literature class that discusses fiction and/or creative writing.
Bet it doesn't work ...
.. on apps that use the new ad model!
Which would, of course, mean that any advertiser wishing to reach an audience using St. Steve devices would have to pay St. Steve for that privilege. Wooot. Nice 'feature'.
Yeah, but ....
... you have to admit that announcing "Steve Jobs!" ... and then having Ballmer walk onstage wearing a black turtleneck ... would have been damnably funny!
Units of drag?
Uh, I believe that would be "Chers".
(Perhaps "Eltons" across the pond. Or "Liberaces" for the pensioners.)
I'll wager the vertical stripes could be quite slimming for your armoured kit!
Because it HAS to be regional!
By having separate regional teams you make it quite easy: (a) to justify the big fooking database you need to 'facilitate co-operation and collaboration' between the regions, (b) to accumulate a bigger budget, and (c) to shuffle the blame when the wheels come off.
D'oh! Clearly an epic 'win-win-win'!!
RE: A question for Player_16
Nearly there. MS is suiing for two reasons: (1) they had to refund the ad monies they collected from the legitimate advertiser in order to keep them happy, (2) if they fail to act then word with get round and they will have more difficulty selling future ads.
It's all about protecting the revenue stream. Hat? Coat? Follow the money.
Good Short Term Idea
A fun little idea! Two questions:
(1) The night leccy rates are lower because capacity exists and the demand is lower. If everyone uses this, then the demand (and the prices) rise and wipe out the savings. Cool idea - but only if it doesn't sell well.
(2) When a worldfull of leccy SUVs are plugged in for the night ... will there be enough juice left (at a decent rate) to mix up these server rack martinis?
Shaken, not stirred.
More overtime pay for Hachimaki!
Fun TV Series revolving around a group of space garbage collectors:
Naw ... the punks will only set it off on nicked phones!
None. None More Secret!
How much more secret could it be?
You might want to reconsider your icon. Perhaps after you become better informed about what constitutes free speech?
Defamation and slander is not protected under free speech.
Prosecutors might also make a decent case for 'imminent lawless action', which is also not protected under free speech.
This guy is a tool. He deserves to be fined and to do time.
Many of the decent automotive technologies have filtered down from racing.
Somehow I'm not seeing this being a desired feature for NASCAR, or even F1.
Well no, *I* wouldn't particularly want one ... but it looks like a brilliant gift for my 12 year old niece! I'm sure she'd fancy one with the latest Jonas Brothers album and stickers on it.
That's your target, and at this price, it's golden.
This really is most excellent news!!
I hope this passes soon. After which I would invite you to join me in sending a notarized letter to your local newspaper announcing your intention to run for some sundry office.
Voila! You is now a politician and free to ignore the DMCA.
My coat? It's the one with the running for office button.
Assuming you mean "investment", you seem to have neglected that you have not lost the original value paid out for the stock.
So if you pay $90 for 1 share, earn an $8 dividend and then sell that share for $90 ... you have made very nearly a 9% return in a single year.
Or are your action figure dolls appreciating at a faster rate?
"If someone is searching for cancer treatments there is nothing that links that search to the health status of an individual. They could be running the search on behalf of a friend."
You're entirely right John! And if your wife is found to have searched for information on battered women's shelters? No worries there, mate. There is nothing that links her browser search back to behavior on your part. She could actually be searching on behalf of a friend. I'm sure the media would be glad to give you the benefit of the doubt.
Links to additional pages in an article need to appear at the 'bottom' of each page of the article. They can appear at the top of each page as well, but that is optional. It's bad UI practice not to have them at the bottom at all.
Cash 'n' Carrion?
What an excellent logo!
When will the merchandising be available? ... There are simply too many people I need to send these shirts to!
Won't Someone Please Think of the Data?
Are there any apps that hold or save data anywhere? A calendar app? A ringtone player? Email/Vmail archiving? Personal voice note recorder?
If Apple removes the app, then the data would be lost or bricked wouldn't it?
No, a purchase price refund, or store credit simply would not be enough.
(Paris, because she knows when enough is enough.)
Perk You Leer 8?
Confidodentially, the 'zec briefing lasted 6 hours just to 'splain the 'nunciation.
There wasn't no time left to talk 'bout any 'dem 'mplicashun thangs.
Worthless I tell you. Simply worthless.
Across the Pond
Darn! I would have liked to have seen how the PFY handled that new assignment running the San Francisco muni system.
Next Week's News!
Misplaced/Stolen Swedish government laptop reported to contain unencrypted data on absolutely everybody.
Experts expect the laptop to become available on eBay shortly ... but remind us not to worry because:
"Hey, it was password protected!"
Odd. They 'give' this feature to Amazon but not Barnes and Noble. Lawsuit anyone?
I wonder how much they will charge the catalog sales folks; Eddie Bauer, L. L. Bean, etc. to add this to their records.
Anyone else amused that they enabled this for Microsoft?
@Herbys .... Control
Okay. So the 'bad guys' have found a security hole and people in your military force are dying because of it, right? Which would you prefer? Firing off a sternly worded email to Richmond demanding that they issue a patch as quickly as possible and then assuring your boss and the public and the families of those dying that you really have done everything that is in your power to do ... or spending money on a room full of bearded rent-a-geeks that you can rant and rave and throw pizza at? Which provides the best appearance of your sincere concern to work on and resolve the problem at hand?
Silver? Lead? They are planning to use one of those metal things anyway ....
Surely 1Gb is enough storage to hold "Shock The Monkey"!
Dude, where have you been? eBay hasn't been an 'auction site' for years!! I remember when it used to be an auction site. (Heck. I had a 4 digit eBay ID back in the day.) That was a looooong time ago.
Today true auctions are a very very small percentage of eBay.
Today eBay's just an extention of corporate catalog sales. That's why they have to allow the dynamic off-server content that leads to the cross-site scripting issues. Corporate pass-thru sales are the bulk of eBay's business these days.
Seriously. Pick up a dead tree catalog. Now pick a page at random. Now search in Ebay for any product listed on that page. You'll see that product on eBay. It will be for sale from that company and the 'BuyItNow' price will be the same price you see in the dead tree catalog.
That's what eBay is today. The small business guys started it, posting slow moving inventory for sale, then moving on to listing more and more new items. Today they list items they don't even have in stock but can direct ship to the buyer.
Now the national and international folks have moved in.
Auction site? Meh. eBay isn't an auction site anymore. Sorry.
God Save All Your Queens Are Belong To Us!
Somebody should send your bloody 'internationale' marketing department up the bomb!
Next thing you know we'll be reading about a tech company going out of "business" instead of going titsup!
This Texan prefers that you stay as British in URL as you are in attitude.
Nice, but I think I will hold out for the version that will allow me to spoof RFID tags and transmit false positives. That will be *much* more fun!
