Yes they forced VoIP providers to do it in a year..
Remember back when Vonage and other VoIP providers burst onto the scene? Suddenly E911 for them was a huge deal, government mandate that they implement it in less than 12 months, which most of the managed. Yet cell providers have had over 10 years.
Oh no, Obama side with Bush on one thing so far. All his "change" speak is out the window! Lets not forget that he just directed our torture bases closed, is setting a plan for withdrawal from Iraq is re-enforcing troops in Afghanistan and is opening relations with the middle east... but oh no, nothing has changed in the 4 days he's been in office.
I've seen ads where one party says "The other party supported XYZ" What they fail to mention is that THEIR party also supported XYZ. I think that in ads they should have to report their vote on whatever issue they are discussing.
From The Register:
"DO NOT BUY THIS APP AND APPLE PLEASE REMOVE THIS FROM THE APP STORE...APPLE MUST MUST MUST START TO SCREEN THESE FAKE APPS AND RIDICULOUS SCAMS."
Yet he stated he did intentionally click Buy, the problem was his wife had enabled one-click buying (isn't that patented?) and bam! $1,000 gone. Too bad, if you don't REALLY want to own something, why would you click Buy on the store site? Even as a joke. And secondly, he claims its a "ridiculous scam" yet it clearly understood what it was, the cost, etc. He's just upset that he's been made a fool. Judging by his post on Gizmodo, he was a fool to begin with.
All this music is licensed correct? At the time the license was signed someone at Warner had to say "Yep, this is a fair amount for that song" and then signed on the dotted line. If they don't feel they are getting paid enough then don't since the freakin' license.
Thats a great idea, unless you've had the same email address for 7 years. I work hard to protect my email from spam and I was NOT please when Spy Media did this to me. I've gotten several responses from others on the list who are very unhappy as well. In addition to that, within half a day of it happening I had already received 2 spam messages as a direct result of this.
