FCC Fines Verizon For Failing To Investigate Rural Phone Problems

Sebby Re:Success! (94 comments)

That's why I think fines should be based on a percentage of revenue for the timeframe of the infraction, instead of a fixed (usually capped) amount. That would make it difficult for them to say with certainty that it would cost less to break the law than to actually deal with it (not to mention the investors' backlash if it affects dividends, etc).

Twitter Moves To Curb Instagram Links

Sebby Re:the problem with Twitter (114 comments)

I agree with this too. I understand their desire to make sure people don't post things that are "too long", but 140 is too damn short! I way to potentially solve the problem: give one @-user mention and 1 URL link free - that don't count towards the limit; that would make conversations a lot more useful without adding stupid bloat.

The Subtle Developer Exodus From the Mac App Store

Sebby Re:Forgot the biggest one: Money (229 comments)

The App Store replaces your shopping cart and shipping desk, not your sales and marketing department.

It also replaces 30% with nothingness, since, as you said, you still need your sales and marketing departments.

I've yet to read any developers say that the MAS replaced their departments, thereby making the "Apple MAS Tax" of any real value.

On Software Patent Lawsuits Against OSS

Sebby Re:Protect Innovation (400 comments)

Couldn't we just sue the patent office for not doing its job right and causing all this harm to others (developpers, etc.) that end up having to cleaning up the mess the PTO created out of their own pockets?
