Did they cripple one of the twins the same way they do software when they want you to buy something else?

If you have more then 10 million to tax
You are ALREADY rich. That's more money then the vast majority of people will see in their entire life.
Wa, wa, wa Marxism, bla bla ba.
No one is talking about marxism except the rich and the fools that think they are going to magically become rich and minute now.
Steamer closets, flying cars, robot boxers, smart-mock-cock ban hypocrisy – yes, it's the worst of CES this year
Re: Luddites = Non Sequitur
China is not communist. You don't have communist billionaires.
You think the US is not hacking every one, and Trumps buddies in Russia are hacking everyone. Don't act like it's only China. You think the US can't hack into cisco stuff?
If I was going to gripe about China it would be their payday loans to developing countries.
But Huawei is not China, it's the natural result of outsourcing to China. Why should they make the stuff for peanuts and let Apple make all the profit? They can make their own stuff and take all the money. So now we have the Huawei P20 and other companies like Oneplus starting to sell their own stuff. It's like Japan and TVs in the 70's
US companies that boosted their profits by outsourcing now fear they are going to be the next RCA.
I've received two blackmail spams (pay or we send your web cam porn to all your contacts) using info on there.
It's the junk email and password I used when a site requires you create an account to download an update. I don't know who leaked it and don't much care, that's why I used a junk email forwarder. As a bonus it was forged to look like it came from that address.
Until now, if Canadian Uber drivers wanted to battle the tech giant, they had to do it in the Netherlands – for real
Re: Curious precedent on what is allowed
"To be fair I don't think you'd find many people willing to defend the particular leader he was mocking, especially in hindsight."
The key word there is hindsight. If you look at 1940 you would be surprised at the support. Look at some of the stuff coming out of America First at the time for instants. There were a lot of people who thought he was on the right track. The "alt right" of the time was alive and well much like today and that movie pissed off a lot of people.

They weren't "socialism or communism". No "real" required. The problem with communism is it's unstable because there is nothing to stop one guy from taking all the cookies at which point it is no longer communist. Libertarians have the same problem, everyone is supposed to be free but it applauds taking all the cookies as a sign of success and you are back to your dystopian wonderland.
Your mates vape. Your boss quit smoking. You promised to quit in 2019. But how will Big Tobacco give it up?
Suunto settles scary scuba screwup for $50m: 'Faulty' dive computer hardware and software put explorers in peril
Re: Isn't that what the watches with the numbered bezels are for?
No diving computer? I used this + a dive watch, depth gauge, tank pressure gauge. And a log book so someone could figure out how I screwed up if I got bent.
So you had to know your maximum depth before you got wet, and had to be conservative on your bottom time (or crazy).
Is Google purposefully breaking Microsoft, Apple browsers on its websites? Some insiders are confident it is
A year after Logitech screwed over Harmony users, it, um, screws over Harmony users: Device API killed off
Re: Hang on a minute....
"So what do you think Logitech's legal position would be if it it continued to allow the undocumented API interface to continue in the light of the security concerns it has discovered? They would be royally screwed"
What are you talking about, there are thousands of things like wifi routers and cable modems with known holes you can drive a bus through that don't get a patch because they are a year old and and the new model is out. It's only that they want to keep selling the same one.
Wow, what a lovely early Christmas present for Australians: A crypto-busting super-snoop law passes just in time
Re: "No it was not. Before IP was protected, noone even considered that ideas should be siloed"
"Musician could not write music down, for fear someone would use it at their own advantage."
LOL sure. Lucky there was no one who could transcribe music by ear way back then.
Then there are all those people who "work for hire" and have no rights, it all belongs to the boss. Even after you are long dead.
Re: Isn't it bad?
You are going to compare people suffering a slow death from Asbestos to Sony being upset that someone uploaded a video of their kid dancing to some pop song on the radio?
Like maybe what people are calling a loop hole was the intended way it should work even if corporations would like 100% control.
