Re: San Francisco is a city of rich white people...
and they left because of decades of municipal corruption, high crime and general stupidity on the part of the Democrats who ran the city steadily into the ground for decades - that's as close to kicking out the geese that lay the golden eggs as you're ever going to get. Pure freedom? You are seriously delusional.
Re: San Francisco is a city of rich white people...
Yup, rich white people are such a problem for cities, what with them being responsible for all those meth labs, burgeoning crime rates, violence, destruction of neighbourhoods, union corruption and such. They should be kicked out of the cities. That would teach them. After all, it worked so well for Detroit, didn't it?
any patent using words with more than 3 syllables
should result in automatic rejection of said patent
You can say what you like
video games will always be blamed by someone with a political agenda, be it gun control, behaviour control, anti-bullying or simple religious numbnuttedness.
“Acacia's lawsuits are the worst kind of abusive litigation behaviour, attempting to extract payment based on litigation tactics and not the value of its patents.” So kinda like the Android tax, then.
what ever happens don't look at the sky
and also avoid those weird plants at the bottom of the garden
as a criminal offense
you don't go bankrupt - the state does. Of course, since business and the state seem to be getting cosier by the minute, it's likely that any company charged with copyright crimes would see the charges dropped - depending on factors such as size of donations to election campaigns etc.
zip guns all 'round....
it would really be nice to hear
that the HR drones who introduced it in the first place were summarily fired and tasered off the premises by a group of overweight and sweaty rent-a-cops.
would this include...
The creative accounting that is practised by the movie and music industries to hide royalties due to "creators"? Didn't think so....

Re: No MMS?
MMS has always been a PITA. Expensive, ugly and oft times I experienced incompatibilities between different phones.
the world economy
left in the hands of idiots
They buried him in the basement?
another attempt to force us to replace our collections again
Gets kinda monotonous, these myriad ways of trying to convince people to buy again what they already have.
If he didn't see the train smash that is currently Blackberry that just about every other human being on Earth did, maybe he should stay out of the stock markets.
Maybe someone should explain to Obama
the difference between a taxpayer-funded dollar sucking fiasco and a consistently profitable tech company.
Act II - Sue
Lawsuits seem to be the order of the day among tech companies.
Fanatics are the last ones to realise just how stupid they sound
and having to listen to one is a fate worse than having a Siamese cat shoved up ones anal orifice and dragged through one's entire digestive tract.
maybe one day
executives who drive good companies into the ground because of ego and/or incompetence will be forced into penury for their stupidity.
just another example
of how the universe seems to reward mediocrity.
If he had preface his training with...
"Should be used only for entertainment purposes" he would have avoided all the heart ache.
Re: Stealing is OK?
only if you are a Wall Street wanker
jokes about tea bagging come to mind
apparently because mine has only one track.
Re: Let me see now, his "logic" would imply that.........
only a matter of time before he's found dressed in a pinafore, lying face down in a puddle of his own vomit somewhere behind a transgender strip club in San Francisco.
so where's the ray gun?
since we're suspending all pretences to science here, she'll need a ray gun to blast those pesky Martians.
Re: Godwin's law be damned
nd billions would have died in natural disasters such as famine, plague, floods, fires, earthquakes and the world would be a whole lot more bankrupt thanks to the likes of Lehman Brothers et al. Ya gotta draw a line somewhere.
here i was thinking...
...that this type of crap went out with the inquisition. Is society moving backwards all of a sudden?
It would have been cheaper...
...to hire a bunch of bookkeepers to do it manually.
even when the truth sets them free
they go looking for a cage.
Such fond memories of B-17 Bomber with the voice synthesiser and, of course, Sea Battle. Waited in vain for the computer module, though. It never showed up at this end of the Hemisphere.

Re: Why dislike E.T.?
I remember watching (in my far distant youth) a sales drone demo ET once. He tried desperately to look like he was enjoying the game but he wasn't fooling anyone.
Reminds me of a certain PC retailer in South Africa
When the suppliers stopped supplying them due to lack of payment, they hired a bunch of guys to hijack their competitors delivery truck. Directors were found a few days later with the stolen goods still in their boxes stacked in their palatial homes.
by that logic
so is the combination of a nail, a metal tube and a piece of wood.
I always new the SF genre was in trouble
when Science was changed to Speculative.
If they want to blame someone
they should be suing the punters who aren't buying microsoft/nokia et al.
about as useful as.
Re: It's looking that way in the U.S. too
But an Art History graduate is ideally suited to burger flipping, as are graduates in Medieval History, Rock Music and Law.
Re: NZ Has No TV Tax
In south africa, the public broadcaster is supported by license fees AND taxes, usually because the idiots running the broadcaster blow millions (actually its now billions) on fancy cars, high salaries and other job perks. What makes it worse is that it acts as the Department of Propaganda for the ruling regime.
All of you should shut and be thankful.
Re: Hiding behind the license...
And when someone hides behind a license in order to peddle their turds, the market should respond appropriately - no-one buys it, everyone disses it online and EA lose a shitchunk of money. Revenge is sweet, legal and free.
Here's my question...
Legitimate Music Download Service A offers a wide range of reasonably priced music to subscribers but restricted to a specific geographical area. Legitimate Music Download Service B offers the same range but at a higher price to everyone else. Why should everyone else have to pay a higher price to B for the same music offered by A. Clearly the RIAA and its friends are happy with A's model so why are they penalising the rest of the world by denying them the same access?
Re: Are you?
I think most people have learned to tune out the ads on Google. I use it all the time and can't recall a single ad I've seen or cared for.
