in·no·va·tion [in-uh-vey-shuh n] Show IPA
something new or different introduced: numerous innovations in the high-school curriculum.
the act of innovating; introduction of new things or methods.
1540–50; < Late Latin innovātiōn- (stem of innovātiō ). See innovate, -ion
Innovation is the development of new customers value through solutions that meet new needs, inarticulate needs, or old customer and market needs in new ways. This is accomplished through different or more effective products, processes, services, technologies, or ideas that are readily available to markets, governments, and society. Innovation differs from invention in that innovation refers to the use of a better and, as a result, novel idea or method, whereas invention refers more directly to the creation of the idea or method itself. Innovation differs from improvement in that innovation refers to the notion of doing something different (Lat. innovare: "to change") rather than doing the same thing better.
Boom, four links for you! If you don't like them, then get away from your computer (or whatever you're using to get to this site) and pull out a dictionary! There, you have your definition!
And finally, since does Mike put up a link to that page? You're the one's who putting it up, you idiot! And besides, do you have ANY clue what that phrase means?! Why bother putting it up if you have no idea what it means beyond trying to say that Mike's the one who created a phrase? That's nothing special compare to other trope namers out there, dipwad.
Think for the moment that in order for these things to get online, how did they? Someone went out of their way to buy these things, made a digital copy, and then set it free onto the Internet for others to make copies of. These are the "pirates" you're speaking of, and they do have the money! Not to mention for the likes of us who are at least a bit more logical than you are that download do return the favor by paying.
So, I'll just keep on repeating: why should we take you seriously? You're an idiot.
Yeah, focus on the fact that over half of those who get these e-books are getting for free, while you're glossing over that the other 49% percent of people bought these books. Is that really not important?! This graph is showing that, while there are those out there who don't want to pay, that other nearly-half of people out there are buying these books... and these are the same people you're excusing of being freeloaders!
If I were to take a look at it, I can see that this is a good thing. While on a larger scale it will have an effect because even the smallest things can make a big difference. Sure it probably won't matter to certain audiences, like the MPAA or RIAA since they have the same mindset as you, but if you get the right audience to show this to, then they are willing to go along with this plan.
This may not have an impact now, but this is a step in the right direction. There are others out there that are doing this and they are getting people. I am even going to adopt some of what TechDirt is doing here and apply it to my own works, simply because I do want to have my own audience and I do want people to read my books, while giving me some money if they like my work! I'm not some jerk who goes around telling people that they're criminals for making copies of my stories without my permission! That's completely stupid!
And besides, you're an anonymous coward that's calling us a bunch of freeloaders when you're missing out on something good! Why should we take you seriously?
Again, we're supposed to take you seriously? I rather back gorehound than support your crazy conspiracy, Blue.
And to answer your question: "we're" is referring to the public, that got these people in charge to get these people who are at the ITU there and make these decisions, "allowing" is saying that we, the people, can't do squat because we don't have the power to stop them, and... well, I got nothing on the last part.
... Well I could be totally off on that! But at least I can figure that out better than you can!
Blue... there's an entire world out there, both digitally and realistically. Please, from another human being, get off your lazy behind, walk to the front door and step outside. Take your keys with you, lock the door, and don't go back inside until the day is over with. Then maybe once you have some fresh outdoor air, maybe you'll think better instead of sounding like a crazy conspiracy theorist (not saying that you're already one).
Blue... I will never allow you to support me. I don't want your sympathy. I don't need someone like you supporting me as a writer when you're going to be bashing people over how they're downloading stuff for free when I should be getting boatloads of money.
Sure you might have a point and you sound like a legitimate supporter, but will it kill you to at least cut the nonsense out and speak like a sane person?
Re: Re: Re: And it could be soooo much more easier for Google
Yes, compare Google to the RI/MPAA. I'm sure they share a whole lot in common with each other! bob, you do realize there's much more to the Internet than Google, right!? I don't mind you being a fan-boy for some of the other search engines, but you got to let this go... Google is NOT THE FREAKING INTERNET!!
And before I say what I'm about to say, I like to pass on some wisdom: "If it isn't a problem, don't make it one. If it is a problem, don't make it any bigger."
The reason I'm saying this is that with so much talk of digital piracy, it wouldn't be a problem if these people stop talking about it and stop blaming everyone who goes online of being a filthy pirate. Action speaks louder than words!
But as always, are we supposed to take you seriously?
Well I am fixing on getting a Wii U, but I am hoping to get it next year once I'm settled into a new home and working. That way I'll give it a year and see what's new and what's good. I was also wondering about how to transfer some of my stuff on there, but if this is how it's going to play out... then maybe it is a good thing I'm waiting a year for it.
