Will CNN give credit to the person who submits data?
The submitter won't likely care.
By submittal, does that person lose all rights associated with that data?
That is assumed.
Yes, the only reason a morally non-corupt person would send CNN data they gathered is for the thrill of it all
Certainly, there would be no other reason.
The sarcasm is strong in this one, but you are missing the point. This platform is not about amateurs making a few bucks off their hobby.. this is a platform to enable participants to participate for the thrill of participation.
Some people really like itunes.. some people really hate itunes.
Some people have ipods and got used to using itunes, and want to continue using itunes to manage their media library, even tho they have purchased additional devices capable of playing back media.
I don't know who these people are. I hate itunes. I love my ipod. I've tried other software to manage my library.. they sucked at managing my ipod. I have other devices that I could put music on.. (my cellphone is actually branded "walkman") but thats absurd, I never will. The ipod does that so much better, and I would never want to drain my phone battery listening to music.
And yes, it would be philanthropic of Apple to open the ecosystem. It would also hurt profits.
Wasting developer resources to sabotage another companies attempt at seamless interoperability during a very public pissing contest over who's hardware is allowed to have the "premium user experience" is absolutely a blow to the reputation of Apple, whom, if I recall correctly, consider their image to be penultimate to their success.
You think they spend all that money making fun of windows in their ads cause they want to be known as evil overlords?
Plain and simple.. this was a stupid move on Apples part.
The problem with incumbents.. is they have all this money from being the incumbent...
The startups just don't have the same resources.
How can we convince our politicians (in all sectors) that disruptive startups are a good thing for the economy as a whole, and we should encourage them when the gigantic encumbants have their ear and are whispering the exact opposite to them?
I just don't see how this is any different from a simple cartoon strip.
The funny section is just a "value add" for consumers.. This arrangement doenst seem to be any different from the arrangement on all the other comics in the paper, and I fail to see how this is really going to do anyone any good.
Well, I see the artist doing the video(?) getting his name out, thats a good thing. It's like he's getting a free commercial put out once a month.
For the paper however... The funny pages.. are not a solution to their problem. Exclusivity agreements are not how the papers will save themselves.
This is not a CwF for the paper... nor is it any real RtB.
It looks more like a desperate attempt to stay relevant.. and keep people coming back to their site at least once a month.
I don't see the harm in this arrangement.. it's just not groundbreaking by any means. This is more of the same old same old.
