"He's blinded by the wiki-rhetoric. Movies are already an intensely collaborative product. The small movies usually have the input of 100s of people and the large movies may combine the work of tens of thousands of people. That's why the credits take forever to scroll by."
1)Please list what large movie has thousands of people working it
2)I didn't realize the food service people, personnel assistants, payroll, makeup & hair,etc all had a say in what final product would be.
Re: Oh I get it, all you have to do is ask people to "do better"
"Let me get this straight. I can write an open letter asking the food companies to do better on calories/taste/freshness/whatever and until they do, I'll feel free to just shoplift whatever I want. They need to earn my money.
Maybe the editors of Maxim or Playboy could write an open letter asking the women to "do better" at satisfying them and until then, they'll act like rakes or cads. "
You would be correct if we could download food and women from the internet nice try fool.
Deregulation( regulations also)is not what got us into this mess for me its the lack of transparency, openness and simplicity is the root issues. So into latter is introduced and followed upon correctly in wont matter.
Sorry to say I'm going to have to call you out and say BS!
"I don't want to cause a riot, but I worked for Israeli security."
"The main problem with any item you carry with you, is that you might hide stuff in it. From a shank to a real knife, to a bomb, etc. If the bottle is clear, the guard can see through it, test it, and scan it with the metal detector (which I fondly refered to as the beepy-thingie) to see if you can spot knives or even detonators.
You can't do that with a metallic bottle.
The security guard has no time to tap the bottle gently and "listen" for double-flooring, or rigged surface that might hide a knife, or even C4. He can't. He tells you to not bring it in."
Unless told otherwise C4 or any other type of explosive can be hidden in anything and would stupid to be hidden in something metal. Think of the shoe bomber and the whole liquid gel bomb threats! What makes you think the detonators would even be attached to the bomb and not be bought in by someone else or crafted by materials already in the building.
If t his is a bomb, it's still at risk of blowing up. But a dumpster has much less foot traffic than the Capitol building itself, so they may have made a judgment call of risk vs. the effort it takes to check this type of item. They know the area and 'soft spots' better than either of us. On top of that, "
Again BS, so lets see an explosive going off in a metal dumpster creating thousands metal fragments been propelled and a high rate hundreds of feet and making one hell of a loud bang is a minimal risk? Add to the fact the you allowing two way access to said container?
'Think analog. If a store doesn't sell u what u want, u are justified stealing it? "
I wonder if she would like others using this think analog bit when it comes to people for bashing the the industry(labels & artists) for its drugs, alcohol get those bitches & hoes attitudes and don't forget to kill those cops!
"As long as Amtrack is not the government, they can do what they want - they are the ones paying for and providing the Internet..."
Our tax dollars are going to keep Amtrak running, so no they can't do anything they feel like doing. Blocking Gay and Lesbian sites can be viewed as discrimination and such opens them up to lawsuits. You can discriminate against people sexual orientation, lick blocking them from any type loans, housing or job opportunity's.
"It doesn't matter how bizarre the licensing is, if the final price to the consumer is competitive."
Sorry to say its not, the extra cost will be passed down to the consumer. Why try to innovate if your going to get hit by lawsuits and have to strike massive cross licensing deals with company's that offer no products or benefits to consumers.
"Microsoft patents. And, notably, Microsoft has never sued Google over those products"
What's stranger is Google's response. Which as far as i have seen been little or nothing. Maybe they have inside information on those deals and see them as no threat and just PR spin from a desperate company.
i also don't understand the lack of bashing that Microsoft is taking on these types of deals. Microsoft is basically admitting that its products inferior and they can not compete on a level playing even thou the have these so called patents of said technology.
I have this feeling that this is going to come to head at some point in the near future and nobody's going to like the outcome.
