Exactly, people also seem to forget there are over 80 million legal gun owners in the US with over 300 million guns that do nothing wrong every day.
One psycho shoots a place up and they want to punish millions of responsible people? When does it make any sense to pass laws to regulate less than one part per million away? What could they even possibly pass that would be effective in this case anyways?
I think you would appreciate that for once, the takedown notices have nothing to do with copyright issues and is in the interest of both Apple's customers, and the independent developers that make apps for Macs and iOS devices.
Actually I think that's his point, these takedowns have nothing to do with copyright so what right exactly do they have to get them taken down? If they are using the DMCA to get it taken down they obviously have no valid copyright claim to do it by and are abusing the process.
If they are just asking Youtube to get the videos taken down because they want them disappeared and Youtube is taking them down then this really reflects badly on Youtube more than it does Apple. This is a valid security issue that Apple needs to fix, not just try to hide so taking these videos down is the wrong solution.
Dr. Caron: "These are just a few of the images we've recorded. And you can see, it wasn't what we thought. There's been no war here and no terraforming event. The environment is stable. It's the Pax. The G-23 Paxilon Hydrochlorate that we added to the air processors. It was supposed to calm the population, weed out aggression. Well, it works. The people here stopped fighting. And then they stopped everything else. They stopped going to work, they stopped breeding, talking, eating. There's 30 million people here, and they all just let themselves die."
I just ran into this same issue, after hearing so much about Spotify here on Techdirt I wanted to see what there catalog was like and what music they had available only to find out that their website has no search function.
OK, fine then, I'll download your app after all and search through everything that way. Oh, I can only create an account by linking it to my Facebook account? Sorry, app deleted and one chance of getting another paying customer lost.
I have a Facebook account but the last thing I ever want to do is use it to log into other sites/services. I hate that I even feel a need to have a Facebook account to keep in touch with friends and the last thing I'm going to do is give them more power over me by using them as a form of authentication.
There are a lot of times I miss my old Palm Pre, it was a fantastic little device and in many ways it was well ahead of its time.
I'm also am very glad that some of the Palm guys went to work at Google and brought along things like swipe to dismiss notifications and closing apps from the recent list. Still, that gesture area was magic and its kind of a shame that will never come to Android.
Add another backer to the list, this looks fantastic.
What we need is more projects like this. Everyone working on this started doing this because it was a story they wanted to tell and they worked their day jobs and used donated time and effort by fellow believers to make it happen. I'm more than happy to pitch in to get the finishing touches put on it.
As far as I know they have 3D printers that work with materials as hard as metals and as soft as wax. A wax print of this would be perfect, when it gets too beat up you can melt it back down and make another.
This! Why can't every book, TV show, game, or movie have a Flattr button or something? Imagine being able to use Flattr to spread out however much you can afford each month between all the things you enjoyed?
You know, if NASA needs ideas or help with inflatable habitats maybe they should be working with Bigelow Aerospace. They might be able to learn a thing or two from a private company that has two inflatable habitats that have been orbiting earth for half a decade.
Personally I'm very excited for their planned 2014-2015 launch of their next habitat that should be going up on a SpaceX rocket. This could really kick off a lot of awesome things with an actual commercial space station in orbit.
Oi, the whole problem here is this Executive Agreement of is over matters that Congress controls. It's not about making new laws its about entering into agreements on a subject the Executive branch has no jurisdiction over.
The Executive Branch is co-equal with the Legislative and Judicial Branches. One does not work for the other, and the letter that was sent by Mr. Wyden makes it seem as if this is something about which he is unaware.
Right, but they all have their own areas they are responsible for and neither copyright nor foreign trade matters are under the jurisdiction of the executive branch.
Obviously, Mr. Wyden is aware of this since he is, after all, a lawyer. I am curious how he would react were he to receive a somewhat equivalent letter from the President asking him to articulate the basis under which Congress is proceeding on a legislative matter. I believe we all know the answer.
Actually I hope Wyden does not know what you claim he does because he is a lawyer, he should know how the government actually works. Furthermore if the president were to say ask why congress was trying to direct troop deployment or other military matters then I would hope they would give a serious answer. Since Congress has not been trying to impinge on the Executive branches privileges this of course has not happened.
BTW,based upon the specific language used in his letters, it is abundantly clear that they are being ghost-written by persons outside of our federal government. I say this because I have seen virtually the identical language used in communications prepared by at least one of the so-called "civil societies".
Well since even you say that '[evil quote marks]'civil societies'[/evil quote marks]' are asking the same thing and they and the government are supposed to be representing and working for the people I fail to see an issue here (if its even true). This is FAR less of an issue than say corporations writing legislation for us and politicians passing it without even reading it.
Did you and I even read the same article? This is about Wyden finally getting a response from the USTR, realizing the answer had nothing to do with what he asked and asking more questions again. How is this not a worthy update?
On top of that how can you say it was answered to Wyden's satisfaction originally when he turns around and asks for them to actually answer the questions he asked?
