In that nightmare solution, only the Chinese win. You can kiss Taiwan goodbye, both Iran, and North Korea will get the Bomb, and likely use it. And Hillary will be the new VP. You can have that nightmare world we don't want it!

Re: Microsoft Has anyone else noticed...

Wow Coca-Cola has a monopoly in the Coke market. I'm telling you it's a real head scratcher how PepsiCo manage to stay in business. When Pepsi should also be able to sell Coke. Its just not fair.

I thought that such was the raison d'être of both Windows X, and it's built-in crAPP Store that pretty much nobody uses.

Re: SLAPP

That is of course a different story, and how much a jury will see the phone market as being something compleatly other then say ye ol traditional PC Market, and that should not be to wide a strech. As everyone plus the family dog, can scrape your "mobile waste data" for fun, and PROFIT. Although a few people have mummered about this before. most just chose to look the other way for the sake of an easy life, of point to point GPS Navigation, Wireless Payments, or for the more mentaly ill amoung us.... Targeted Ads.

So let us NOT go saying that this is not how the PC Market does things. Because the Phome Market has never had anything outside of the wider Internet, and all that in there lay. to do with it.

Then again they probably don't... But, please feel your freest to direct me to the nearest >insert diety< engraven stone where it states that life, is not only fair. but, by its very esssence must be.

Epic think they are too cool to play by the rules, so reality came, and smacked some sense into them. Hopefully the more earthly based Courts shall do the same.

Re: Interesting note from the field.

Let alone every other Team from the MLB to the NHL But, FWIW I don't quite know myself why we are even having a Baseball Season this year for. They should have just shut it down, along with the rest. Again all this is political BS in an election year. Which in a better dimionsion could have possbly worked. Alas back in this One we are stuck with Creepy old Pedo Joe. and, well its President Trump's game to lose. and, god help us if he somehow does. I deffintly DCO NOT want to live in a world where President Kamala Haris, and Vice President Kill 'em all Hillary are the ones in charge.

Michael Habel Silver badge

One would THINK... If One were a "peacful protestor" One would actively distance themselves from the bad actors giving everyone else a bad name. Alas for reasons that are not apprently clear this is exaclty what IS NOT happinging.

Perhaps someone should ask why? But, again that would take the wind out of to many sails. and, CHAZ is such a hep spot to be in. An Anarchists wet dream or so I'm told. If anything good sould come from CHAZ, and its ilk... It WILL be another four years of President Trump.

Either you open your "Platform" to all.. or to none. I for one fail to see a need for an apology. On that note where was "Apology" to Winnie the Pohs PRC? Surly he must have offended someone in the Hidden Kingdom. But, again I'm probably on the less popular side of this argument.

Re: If there were no Facebook?

Again, who cares? Facebook (the last time I looked), were based in the USoA. That means they have to respect US Law. Unlike say GB Law, where Speach is not free, and lord help you if you record your dog doing cute things on youtube that might upset someone. Because the joke went over their heads.

We can either respect our eldest laws (coof) The First Ammendment (coof), or we can watch the country burn. You want a resonable discussion why I should address you in some prefered pronoun? Ok I'm willing to discuss it. But, never tell me that I must. Ether way the First Amendment stops when you start thworing Bricks, or Firebombs at mom & pop shops. and. contrary to some peoples enlightend beliefs Americans also have the right to defend themseelves, and or their property. Yes even with deadly force where needed. This is not the same as theright murder someone, and yes in the case of Geroge Zimmerman. You will eventually have to answer for it in a court of law.

Michael Habel Silver badge

Re: If there were no Facebook?

And pray tell us exacly WHO, or by what standard in which you would hold anyone least of all Facebook to? If we hold our laws in any reguard whats so ever then the very first ammendment MUST BE RESPECTED... Yes at the cost of either your respect or mine. There can BE NO hate speach, as there is only "Free Speach", or there is none. there is no middle ground here to debate. Free Speech cares a wet jot about your FeFe's.

Re: If there were no Facebook?

I think P.T. Barnem might have said something along the lines of being unable to please everyone at the same time, and who arethe most nosily unpleased then ye average green & purple haird SJW? Perhaps if the Media would stop giving bothe Facebook, and Twater somuch free advertising they would both go away.

Re: I would hate to own commercial real estate

Lord knows what hell you lot actually would pay for? Insurance is little more then a legal scam. you can dump millions into it over a lifetime, and never see a penny of it. because of some weaslewording on page 23 in 0.05pt font. states that your Fire Insurance does not cover water damage caused by the Fire Department trying to put the fire out.

Michael Habel Silver badge

Re: I would hate to own commercial real estate

I'm sure all those reported rapes, and gunshots during the CHAZ invasion were all commited by "Trump supporters".... And, not by some fairweather Commie, with said guns. Or the Commmies who are bussy looting,and buring everything to the ground. I think you forget that people have the right to defend themselves, and their property. Something NOT affoerded to coof comuinties coof in 1930 Germany. which makes you look like a total tool. Cause if had a the slightest clue, you wouldn't be saying that.

Re: I would hate to own commercial real estate

Well there is that "wall" between Work & Home that could be lost. then there is the lack of contact with your co-wokers. to descuss the little things like lastnights tv show. last saturdays match. The hot babe, up on the 40th Floor in the HR Department... etc....

Michael Habel Silver badge

Re: I would hate to own commercial real estate

And, just how many People on the 48th Floor, all of whom are slated to "Work from Home", should they choose to.... Do you think this will affect? Or is it your oppinion that Smallvile Man. just out of High School has the same qulifacations. (e.g. Ivy League Universtiy Education), those who had? Perhaps not everyone will have a "quality" Internet. but, then, not everyone will need, or want a "quality internet". Or it could be in the New "Normal" eveyone with a valid subscription can vicariously gain their MBAs without ever stepping a millimeter on a campus.

So again what "value" is in a Harvard / Yale etc...Diploma when the World + Dog can also earn one from an on-line course?

Re: I would hate to own commercial real estate

Would it be fair to point out that Detroit is your most classic example of a Deamonrat controled City? Ya know because Orrange Man Bad.... Orange Man who wants to stop or, at the least stem the exudus of said Jobs to Mexico, and China. I don't think Japan has stolen a single job in, andof itself. Just because once upon a time. Japanse Automakers were able to sell a cheaper, more economical product. Which itself was probably bolted together somewhere in the PRC.

That level of Manufacturing will never return to Detroit. Hell I doubt even WWIII would be enough anymore. Given how the furturte of Warfare is tending to. That Cat has left the box.

Re: I would hate to own commercial real estate

Sounds to me like Ye'ol classic form of "investment", which is just a loaded word for "Bet". Sometimes you win. Well this time they lost. The property bubble in New York was long overdue for a popping. and, now post '20 Coof, and mostly peaceful commie roitors are finnally driving the middle class out, along with the 1%'s who lost any reason to reain there. Broadway is in short non-existant. Exclusive Highstreet Shopping is being driven off by the afrementiond "mostly peaceful" Deamonrats. (BLM, Antifa etc..), Why the hell would anyone chose to remain there? And, its likely to only get alot worse before it gets any better.

Re: I would hate to own commercial real estate

Only in as far as there is NO excuse to be a leach on society. Sadly, not everyone has the "right" to live in Mannhattan. Just like not everyone can have a Farrari just 'cause they want it.

Re: I would hate to own commercial real estate

Would this start a resurgance in the Shopping Mall? Or is it too late? Makes me wonder why the Internet hasn't killed the likes of Walmart / Safeway / Kroger yet? I mean I guess I can understand why you wouldn't want to buy some Lettuce off Amazon. But, what about most ofthe other non-perishables, Dry Cereal etc.. I mean how do we break the wall that allows us to buy Jeans off Amazon. Sight unseen, but we have to "see" the Letuce in order to purchace it.

Michael Habel Silver badge

Re: I would hate to own commercial real estate

Why do yout think everyone is fleeing the likes of New York? Riots aside... The Coof has caused everyone to close. with no means of an income with which to pay their rents, or outstanding tax debts. Likewise the entertainment sector is in short non-existant. Broadway is closed for bussness, along with most of the Museums.

Meanwhile you have the mostly "peaceful" protesters, which not totaly not unlike a plage of locusts leave nothing but, a trail of destruction behind them. As if these individuals actually needed an additional kick in the teeth, and yet you still wonder why that anyone who reasonably can... Is GTFOut of the likes of New York City as fast as their Moving Truck will thake 'em?

Unless your looking to plant your Residentail-ized Manhatten based flats with the formally homeless. Just who would want to pay the going rate to live in a dying city.*

* Yes I do expect New York City to eventually recover... But, it will most likely take a good 10+ years to get back... Assumimng that there is a way back from this "new normal".

Re: year three Oracle licensing

Watch how fast Oracle get their ass handed back to them in the circut curt if they ever tried this. Its one thing to pull it with a Database package ment for the Enterpise Market.It will be another to clam this about every Phone in existance. besides it won't be the enduser the like of Oracle will be after, but players like Google, and Samsung.

I'm pretty sure that once upon a time pre Firefox v4, let alone pre Aurora where, Firebadger also had a fairly decently sized chunk of the market too... How would you like to bet that if they ever decided in a monent of unreasonable sanity, to bring Firefox v3 back. But with all the current year +5 security updates along with it. People would switch back over to it in a shot.

I know I probably would.
