Who said there is no such thing as zombies.
Give someone the choice of $1 now or $10 in ten years most will go for the quick cash. New trees are not quick cash.
" Trying to invent themselves as a "brand" to sell others products was stupid."
Since I always thought of them as sellers of run-of-the-mill over priced products their name is not something I would want to pay for.
You are on a dynamic IP address that others have been using...
The site uses the same methods as the RIAA... that is pulls stuff out of it's butt.
Don't think the RIAA and the rest would be on dynamic address.
That would save all this trouble.
might have some dirt on me.
Will shutdown all of it's services 12/16/2011
The ability to create a Napster account and become a new Napster member has been discontinued as of November 17, 2011.
To our current members, thank you for being a valued Napster customer. After seven years of service, Napster Canada will be shutting down all of its services on December 16, 2011. If you are a subscriber, you may continue to use the service as long as your subscription is active and until December 16th. There is no need to cancel - you will not be charged for any subscription fees after our shutdown (and we won't bill you for any renewal that may occur between now and the shutdown).
Why pick the lock on the front door when the back door is hanging open?
What did they say? It will take 30 years to crack or something like that.
If there is ever content of any interest it will be cracked, MS will patch it, and it will be cracked again in two days. It will only remain "secure" as long as there are better/faster ways to get stuff.
They require the use of HDMI (no component allowed) on up sampled DVD players. What moron would copy the analog component out put in real time when they can just rip the DVD in a few minutes? They just don't think about things in the real world. They double lock the front door while the back door is broken and hanging off it's hinges.
They make life difficult for anyone who wants to pay them while making the bootleg copy even more attractive. Bunch of rejects.
Will they see to it that the plugin has a fall down the stairs maybe?
It was due to collect samples from Phobos and return to Earth so I assume there is a small part that is built to make it back through the atmosphere. If they could get that to separate from the rest and make a controlled re-entry that bit could be recovered while the rest burns up (they hope).
I have had battries die that fast (overpriced camera battry for one) and others keep going (2nd gen ipad touch). Adhesive on a battery is a bit of a pain but check what you have to do for an ipod or ipad to get at the battery and get the thing back together!
I expect it will be some time before I see it on amazon.ca
"Coke adds life" a few years back.
I know enough Japanese to tell you that the translated captions (beta) are just about 100% wrong/useless.
They have all the people who will not bother to change the default after installing an IE/OS upgrade. I don't think they will get anyone to actually choose to use bing.
Only real banks and securities companies are allowed to rip people off.
But is there a law that tells them they can't advise on household chemicals, cars, hot tubs etc like the one for guns? No? So what's your point?
And I think a cat visited that sandbox earlier...
Call the clean-up the latest thing in modern art. Any one who says otherwise is clearly lacking any knowledge of real art.
Ship a phone with version 1.0 software hacked up and locked down so the user can't update it (without hacking the phone) and then ship a different phone in 6 months and never update the software for the old phone.
I've had to hack dumb phones so I could install the factory version of the software because the operator had no interest in providing a working version of the software for a phone they don't sell anymore.
The bean counter did it.
So it's a Bean Counters list, not a gamers list. When I look at it that way the choices are easier to understand.
Also stops all the smug cunts in sales 'accidentally breaking' their 9 month old laptop because the guy next to them has a newer one.
I found keeping a few extra crappy looking old ones around as loaners for lost/broken items worked great for keeping the number of broken/lost items down.
It's amazing how often people find their "lost" 6 month old Blackberry when you give them a three year old one to use until they come due for a new one in 18 months. To make sure they don't get any ideas I show them the B/W Blackberry "look at this one, it still works! They built them like tanks back then....".
Maybe virtual chair throwing for a start.
lock him up for a bit.
Guessed a password big deal, give him the same that he would if it was Joe Blow's password (nothing). So what if it is some "important" person.
CA antivirus is something that should be removed...
And the cops (everywhere) did such a good job on that one.
Someone give Viacom a big block of cheese.
It was appealed and the ban lifted.
And it will post what you are watching.
So it's not a problem it it gets killed off.
Or they set their voicemail pin to 1234.
And someone will be claiming to have 5 or 6G.
Lets see you build your own laptop...
Now every GPS unit has to be replaced with a new one with magic filters. Extra fun for units built into cars and not just stuck on the windshild.
All so Lightsquared can setup a new cell network that will need new phones.
The phone company want theirs now.
Or they would be to bland to interest the rats. Personalty I'd have added a big bucket of katsup with a small explosive charge into the centre of the room. There is a limit to what a rat can swallow but katsup always helps....
When it starts so high, it has so far to fall.
Well I'm not...
Spotify in Canada
It looks like you're accessing Spotify from outside our launch territiories. In order to buy Spotify premium, you will need a payment card that has been issued in one of our launch territories (i.e. Finland, France, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom or United States). As a Spotify Premium user you will have be able to use Spotify when you travel for an unlimited time period.
So they will only take my money if I somehow find my self with a US payment card. Maybe something like buying a Japanese iTunes gift card online so you can buy from iTunes Japan... yes a quick google shows market in spotify gift cards.
"Levine: A lot of people say DRM was huge problem. But when EMI eliminated it, it didn't create a huge boost in sales."
That's the wrong question. You should ask when you add DRM did it create a huge boost in sales?
If the answer is no then DRM is not working, and you are paying for something that people hate.
Even if it was stopping people from copying your stuff (ha!), it's not making them buy it so you are just pissing into the wind.
\what no Chocolate cops?
The big bonus for the top exec.
Once long ago when they sold them to farmers and such. Now that they sell them to twats with too much money, highway ride, and a nice radio are more important.
They want to keep you paying the monthly subscription fee,
and a battery life of more then 5 minutes.
Just about anyone could come up with the rest, and more I'm sure.
Create a projector that will fit in a phone and run for a useful amount of time on the battery and they can have a patent.
For the crap they are trying? Maybe they should try for a job writing a script for a sci-fi TV show.
Strange? Just look at the price of Digital Camera batteries and it's not hard to see why they are popular. They must have about %10,000 markup!
They spent 6 weeks investigating this?
So a J walker would take them about 3 weeks, and a armed robber about 9 years. How pathetic can you get?
Sorry we don't have enough manpower to investigate your house getting broken into, wait did you say there is a donut shop across the street? Maybe we can give it a month or two.
It's me Elvis!
99% of the time I use Feb 29 of a non-leap year for the birthday.
