So they haven't managed to fully lock it down, though I suspect that's on it's way. I haven't used Macs in a while since circumstances forced me over to Linux 'round ten years ago, though I have kinda kept an eye on the Mac side since I used them since the early 90's.
Actually Apple hasn't been a general purpose computer in a while really for example you can't easily change a hard drive because of sensors in or on the factory drive. Bit by bit they've been locking down the software and hardware, with the former supposedly only installable if the maker has a developer ID. This becomes a problem because if they pull Epic's ID, not only will it stop their software from being installed, it may also cause problems with anything built on it.
I think the case against Apple is fairly strong, especially in the face of Apple's latest moves which could break anything using the Unreal engine on Macs as well as IOS devices. Basically your software doesn't get on Apple devices without Apple's permission, and them getting a cut.
On the Google side, their argument is really rather weak, after all you can load software onto your device from non-Google sites. That said, the first article I read on this had Epic saying that users were constantly getting asked to update permissions for the app, something I've never seen on non-Play apps on my devices, which makes me wonder if Google was targeting them to force Epic into the Play store where they could get a cut of their sales.
Actually there can be a lot on your lock screen, Android allows notifications to be sent to your lock screen, so it's possible that a glance at the lock screen could show who you've been talking to and via what apps.
Chuckles, "I was just going to mention this. Did they really think this was going to work? It's kinda like the monkeys and Shakespeare, this only works for as long as it takes to crowd source a solution, and crowd sourcing is getting easier."
That's one of the issues I have here. Others are that they shouldn't have to pay full state tax, say maybe 50%? Sellers below a certain threshold shouldn't be responsible for collecting, although a collective entity that they work through (think Amazon marketplace or Etsy) might be required to do so. And sellers only have to pay/collect state and federal sales tax (yes, I know it doesn't exist... yet).
Actually it's a bit more restricted than that, ifn you live in Australia, you can only buy from Amazon Australia, nothing from Amazon in other countries.
I'm of the opinion that the Dems did this more to screw with the Republicans. Think about it, this was a no lose move, they either get a gun law through, or the Repugs... I mean Repubs have to admit that the Terrorist Watch List sucks and needs to be reworked.
Ahhh, Mesa, a city I lived and worked in and remember not so fondly. This really doesn't surprise me considering politics down there and a general disrespect for the law by those in power.
I'd wait to see what happens with this before you crucify Bernie over this. Most likely some staffer did this without clearing it with him, and you'll see it dropped and an apology once he finds out.
On a separate note, am I the only one who thinks he should choose Wyden as his VP?
Mr Beam II? Someone channeling Apple, who's Apple I was a kit, and the Apple II was the first complete computer?
Prove that this is Sander's lawyer. Seriously, not an unreasonable question considering the lawsuit he's involved in right now, this could easily be just more dirty politics to discredit him.
Even better, take a look at the client list, there's a screenshot here: http://www.csoonline.com/article/2943968/data-breach/hacking-team-hacked-attackers-claim-400gb-in-dumped-data.html Clients are divided into three types, active, inactive and not officially supported. Guess who is the third type
These days it seems to be rather common. I worked overnights at a Wal*Mart, and it isn't all that uncommon to see parents bringing their kids with them at 2 and 3 in the morning.
As to the main story, kinda misleading, what we have here is a cop charging someone with a crime that doesn't fit. I wouldn't be surprised that if one took the time to look that there's a law against swearing in public, albeit prolly a very old law that everyone's forgotten about.
I don't get it, why are they fighting so hard to keep the name? You buy a football team to make money, no? Change the name, sell the current merchandise as collectibles, and then reap the benefits of all the fans that need new merchandise. Screw wasting money to fight changing the name.
