Apple: Chaotic good, committing huge abuses of the patent system to show the world it is broken.

I can't see how any settlement amount would be commensurate to the amount of money he would have made while he site was down. I wouldn't take it either, from a business perspective.

A valid use for Windows 8?

Thumb Down

I use XBMC for my media center, I don't know why anyone would use Windows 8. It offers no inherent advantages to running XBMCBuntu or XBMC on Windows 7.

Well, it's not going to stop the alarmism either way.

Well, seems like there's one way...

Maybe I'm being silly, but I think if they searched their database for an account emails similar to his they'd probably find it. Not sure if that would violate some privacy laws though.

Re: Cannibalistically destroying the capitalst system

No, I think that probably says more about the government's policy of borrowing money they can't possibly expect to repay than it does about "capitalism". Destroying capitalism by not paying for socialist programs? Well... o-okay.

Re: Über capitalist trolling from the reg yet again

>This is a terrible article that uses sophistry to justify the unjustifiable. Firstly, your argument that corporations don't pay tax doesn't actually make sense. I run a company that trades internationally and I can tell you unequivocally that we do pay corporation tax.

I think you missed the point there.

Nice article, it's a shame you didn't go into the corporate structure more, or explain why corporate taxes are bad in detail. It was fairly nice to read though. People in the comments section here, well, they clearly have no concept of how the real world works. It's a shame, but there's little to be done about it.

All corporate profits don't go to stakeholders, employees, R&D, no, in the end they go into the big fat pocket of the company owner! That's why all of those people work for those companies and invest money into them, so that at the end of the day the monopoly man can get his compensation! Nobody sees returns and new technology is never created by the power of corporate profits, nor do employees actually get paid, it's all just eaten by a man with a top hat and monocle that we should stick it to! Yeah! With taxes!

They can only respond with "Bullocks", "Lobby group?", "Paid off", "Republican" and whatnot. No counter-point, no concise argument, almost no logic at all. It's all emotionally driven drivel.

It's as if saying a tax in any form actually harms real, living people and not just the monopoly man is equivalent to dark age blasphemy. People really refuse to acknowledge it, it seems, in this day and age. Taxes are only to be created, increased, possibly decreased if it adversely effects a portion of people they don't want it to effect but they never, ever consider the consequences of a "bad tax", there's no such thing, after all. Taxes can only do good.
