Zynga destroyed farmville through greed, they just kept adding more farms until it became impossible to play the game without paying for speedups.
If a monkey can't hold copyright then it should be down to...whos camera was it? This seems to be more about a growing trend for big online presences to think they're above the laws us peasants have to adhere to.
Re: Smart as they are, just not smart enough to do it on their own.
Aren't the germans considered the best at making cars that actually work rather than looking nice.
You see a lot of US bashing because the US makes it so easy.
nematoad: You're missing the point, bad things are only bad when it's NOT the USA doing them; If America kidnaps and tortures someone thats fine, if someone else does it...they are evil. If the USA decides that privacy laws and human rights don't matter then that's fine, as long it it's only 1 way.
That's 4 words.
Aren't these services needed for the lost/stolen phone system to work?
Is it standard for apple to say tough titty? or do they usually accept responsibility?
They've always used the same lies to excuse it; Adobe were honest about it a few years ago, they charge a lot more in the EU...because they get away with it.
There needs to be a level of stupidity that warrants losing your license.
If it's like any other agreement it will only go one way, to the USAs benefit.
Arnold: Isn't part of the problem that the Jews believe they have a divine right to certain lands because god said they could have them? A flimsy reasoning if ever there was one.
True, it's an illegal occupation interspersed with offers of peace talks, which inevitably end with the Israelis building more illegal encampments, then wondering why the people they are killing are being rude to them.
This really should be listed under #firstworldproblems.
It's sad but most people today seem to have given up listening to quality music in favour of convenience.
Facebook users are nothing but a commodity to be exploited by zuckerberg, i don't think he even tries to claim otherwise these days.
I wonder which one is fighting for more funds to continue their research?
He would be hard pressed to make them worse than the prequels.
This is how all US systems function isn't it? The one who can spend the most wins.
building a case
The only reason for such stupidity would be so they could go to court and provide hard details of the cost/damage done; there would be absolutely no medical/hygiene reason for wasting so much water.
I find it quite sad how many people will spend all their time at an event trying to film it on a shitty phone/tablet camera instead of actually enjoying themselves. "yay im just back from the U2 concert".."was it any good?"..."no idea, i was too busy filming it"
lack of content
I tried Netflix for a while until i realised that about 80% of my searches came back with no content. One of these services really needs to start stocking up on older stuff.
Re: Increasing the wrong thing
I am willing to pay for it after having cheap WD green drives die on me, now im onto the WD blacks.
Increasing the wrong thing
4tb is enough in 1 drive, too much when the hdd dies. Maybe it's time to put a freeze on capacity and work on the reliability.
Doesn't this mean when the super brittle glass of your ipad cracks, you need to replace the tft as well? even if that would have been undamaged before.
Well they DO tell you multiple times it is not a final release version.
I don't see the reasoning behind an iphone phablet costing more, surely the extra space lets them use slightly cheaper bigger parts.
I think he's implying that the financial institutions are full of thieving scumbags who will push any law as far as they can, and then a bit further...in the belief that if enough money is involved then governments will be too afraid to interfere.
Hehe i noticed the same thing. I'm sure phone shops run their own mini towers; so when you take in your phone and tell them it's a useless pile of crap that cant hold a signal they can show it working great.
Curved TV screens are pointless unless you're sitting close enough to be aware of a wraparound effect, in which case you're probably going to go blind soon. Wide curved computer monitors make a lot more sense as you DO sit close enough to benefit from the wraparound effect.
It was just a shame these new drivers cause an instant crash on my system when i try to run minecraft; uninstalled within 30 mins.
If he wasn't breaking any law he's entitled to donate funds to whoever he likes; there's no law against being an ass. I thought the whole thing reeked of hypocrisy from both sides.
It appears everyone is entitled to an opinion, as long as it agrees with everything the gay lobby want; otherwise you're a foaming at the mouth homophobe who may possibly be the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler.
Little is being done properly because a lot of people ARE making money from home piracy; Home users are paying for faster ISP access, newsgroup/storage server access, storage HDDs. The only people NOT making money are the rights holders. If netflix etc all got together to create a service with the content available on usenet/torrents then a lot of people would pay for it.
It's not a great mystery, the people running the dealerships will have bought off the required politicians needed to protect their businesses.
Elections don't pay for themselves; US politicians are bankrolled by people who expect favours to be returned.
A hypocritical politician? say it isn't so.
Surely you've seen enough of these to realise patents and copyrights aren't valid unless the US office says so; we all know foreign given patents are a ploy to undermine the American way of life.
I'm a little confused, from videos I've seen Candy Crush is nothing more than a bejeweled clone with a few tweaks; this means King feel its fine to rip off other people...but not ok for anyone to even appear to be doing it to them.
Come on,what are the chances of a court in Cupertino going against apple?
I wonder if this adoption rate is assisted by apple devices constantly asking you to update by flagging the little app update icon; people doing it just to get rid of it so they can see when they do actually have apps that need updated.
Re: Seems a bit pointless
If it's designed for studios then it wont be an ios ipad.
Seems a bit pointless
4k res in a 12" tablet seems pointless, the battery life will suffer and the GPU would need a massive upgrade to actually do much at the full res, so we'd see a lot of up-scaled stuff totally negating having the 4k res in the first place.
Virgin seem incapable of clearly explaining any bill they give, not just with mobiles.
Time for change
It's time for governments to change the system so taxes are based on the location of the customer, we have too many giant companies abusing the current rules, soon they'll all be claiming they have no presence anywhere other than a closet in a shack near the coast off the Bahamas.
Phone sellers deserve what they get for agreeing to such contracts; if they all boycotted the iphone6 Apple would soon change the deals.
How is this policy affected by the age rating of the game? If a game is rated 16+ or 18+ then banning players for a few profanities would seem a bit out of place, people muttering to themselves when they make mistakes is a far cry from abuse of other players.
They will both outsell the last gen, Nintendo is effectively out of the race now since the wii-u launched so early it's not considered next gen. That put's us down to a 2 horse race for hardcore gamers and Ninty for the kids/budget conscious. Given that we're all supposed to be totally broke its impressive that anyone is selling anything.
Lots of people coming up with solutions that suggest the NSA etc have to work within the law, recent events have clearly shown that they don't and that existing laws will be amended to suit them.
Re: Nanny knows best
The days of iPhones being the bling phone are long gone, it's the most common phone around here.
