With Android many devices come unlocked, and you can side-load APK's. In this case if the App was available, especially open sourced, people could hold on the to APK (or compile new versions, add languages, etc) and install it on future versions of tablets regardless of upgrades to the operating system.
Not that this response is particularly legal, But think of it as kind of "Internet Nullification." Yes SFY may interfere with stupidly broad patents, but by consensus of the internet we're going to allow it. And honestly if the internet wants something, the internet gets it, one way or another...
So where's the IndieGoGo for the Operation Bull Love Good, Cancer on Society Bad, I'm sure Mr. Inman could create a killer graphic of a Charging Bull skewering Mr. Finesse for a legal fundraising page.
Correct and the idea of this place is that you can easily obtain transit / tourist visa's so you can come to the main land and have meetings with VC's in Silicon Valley. Otherwise there is not point in parking it there, vs anywhere else in the world
"...focusing on the fact that most of the information requested, Harris' tweets, are already public..."
I like that... "Most" ... Most of the information on my driver's license is "public" you can find my name / address in the phone book, you can find my photo / eye color / etc on facebook profile photo which is public... so since 90% of the information is public why should they need a warrant to get Drivers license # and D.O.B. Or if you have an older license from NH they used to put SSN on there (Clarification, I am not from NH, but had friends that had these licenses, you could request that they not put it on there, but had to proactively say so).
But hey "Most" of that information is public so its okay to just hand out.
That logic works until you realize that God is Mother Nature and that all the offenses against mother nature are all acts against God and (s)he isn't coming for you when we are wiped from the face of the earth.
1) There is no way Netflix got a decent contract from any studio. Hence why others have been sued for user-generated captions.
2) Java seems like a horrible idea for the web. The whole Premise of HTML5 is to incorporate higher level programming and media so we don't have to keep downloading plugins and runtime environments. The web is trying to move to a unified language, not segmented.
3) Also IANAL, but I am a junior architect and have read large portions of the "ADA Standards for Accessible Design" and have had to apply it in almost daily life (It makes restaurant conversations really boring as you talk to colleagues about how their toilet paper holders in their bathrooms are mounted too high.) ADA Compliance typically is required for a certificate of occupancy, older locations are grandfathered until the building / area undergoes renovation. But if you were suppose to meet a certain code when you opened, yes they can shut you down that day if they want to. Similarly to if you violate a Fire Code.
4) Data Mining and ADA Regulations have nothing to do with each other. ADA doesn't mine data, ADA doesn't have logs of visits, that would be the webhost / domain register, and really is a completely separate topic.
Simple Solution to this, Institute a new group policy on all senate / house computers to reset the default homepage of IE to www.bing.com & reset their default search engine to dogpile.com. That way they will have to search for google using someone else's search engine. (because lets me honest they dont know what the address bar is.)
Now M$ is "Teh Interwebs" and everyone will go after Macro$uck
I'm sure it would probably start something like this "In your body are good, live healthy cells, they are yours. they belong to you. But also there are bad, cancerous cells in there stealing your good cells from you. Well that's whats happening here, I had some good cells and this Inman guy stole my good cells and is now trying to hide them in these charities. Just because they are called charities doesn't mean they should be able to hide my good cells. Right? Exactly only the cells are money"
I'd like to say /sarc, but this guy might actually say this.
I think there is only one thing SFY should do at this point, Open Source the whole project. Say someone hacked in and stole their software (not inconceivable with the recent publicity) and released it, Whatever they have to do.
Then developers can port this to Android phones, tablets, and Unlocked iPrisons, etc. Or Better yet, port to HTML5. Devices could run local copies of it for fast interaction, or have a web-delivered version in case the person's device runs out of battery / gets lost / etc, AND is accessible anywhere Web is.
Barnes and Noble forgets that its biggest competitor is not Amazon, its free.
Just this past week I was looking to buy an eBook of an older book series (1970s). I found and read the first book in the series on Google books, but a book published 8 years later was unavailable. So I went to Amazon... Nope, B&N...nope, so I did a Google search for the title and "ebook" the top 29 results were all ways to pirate that book, either PDF versions or an audio book library of the entire series. There was 1 result where I could have actually purchased the book, however, even that was illegal since it was only available in Europe and not the US. Now I really liked the first book I read, I really wanted to pay for it... but in the end the only place I could have purchased it would be to log on to a proxy server, and buy it on European Amazon.
