Apple eBook Rules Changing For Sellers

bilbravo Re:Really, Apple? (584 comments)

... to continue my previous cut-off post:

Everyone was screwed by iBooks introduction on the iPad. 'Agency Model' pricing was introduced and Amazon's $9.99 ebook pricing went out the window. Now most ebooks are $14.99 unless they are super old or not part of the agency 5.

Apple eBook Rules Changing For Sellers

bilbravo Re:Really, Apple? (584 comments)

ePub books with Adobe's DRM is pretty device independent. Currently I can buy a book from Sony bookstore, B&N bookstore, Borders bookstore, or fictionwise.com and load them onto my Nook. I could also load them onto a Kobo reader, a Sony reader, a pandigital novel reader, etc. Amazon.com books can be read on the kindle. iBooks can be read on the iphone/ipad. It's clear who gets it--Adobe, B&N, Borders, and some other small time people (pandigital, kobo, etc) However, EVERYONE wa

Facebook Introduces One-Time Passwords

bilbravo Re:Phone Theft. (215 comments)

Wouldn't stealing your phone also give them loads of other personal information? And the first thing you think of is they will have your facebook account?

Google Gets Its iPhone Voice

bilbravo Re:Oh Apple, let the Apps through already! (249 comments)

No worries. It is very likely that she is grandfathered in; I remember when the merger happened and I thought I was going to get a "circle" but it didn't happen.

I don't disagree that Verizon is evil, I just don't think they have anything to do with this and your initial post was incorrect in some basic facts so I assumed fanboy. :-) That doesn't appear to be the case and I do apologize.

Google Gets Its iPhone Voice

bilbravo Re:Oh Apple, let the Apps through already! (249 comments)

It's interesting that you said it was because of Verizon, because on my Droid Google Voice is allowed. I can't vouch for the "my 5" fave list removal, because I don't have a fave list. You mention that it is available on all plans and that is not true. At least for family plans, you must be on a plan that has at least 1400 minutes. My wife and I have a plan with 700 minutes and it has no option for any numbers. And it is 10, not 5.

Your post seems to be FUD, but I'll let others decide for themselves.

T-Mobile Backs Off Plan To Charge $1.50 For Paper Bills

bilbravo Re:Just reduce the bill (285 comments)

Aren't you going to have to got to the website and enter your login information to pay the bill anyhow?

(I am assuming that anyone who wants paperless billing is also going to pay bills paperlessly--that is to say, online)

Did anyone else notice that all the Nintendo games mentioned are first party games? I always thought that was exaggerated, but I guess it has some backing evidence.

AT&T Has Begun Issuing RIAA Takedown Notices

bilbravo Re:At least this is better than the legal system (383 comments)

So at what point in the post above is proof offered that the ISP serving take down notices will ultimately lead said ISP snooping any and all data for any third party that asks for it?

I also fail to see how my suggestion that it is slippery slope/fallacy is off-topic. It is entirely on-topic; I am suggesting that the reply to my initial comment is not valid. Maybe I was incorrect with my assertion, but that doesn't make it off-topic! ::face palm:: *this wasn't directed at fredklein, but I didn't want to make another post.

bilbravo Re:At least this is better than the legal system (383 comments)

Exactly. There may be concerns of privacy (ISP snooping your data, etc) but considering what we've seen the RIAA due (sue people for ridiculous sums of money) this seems sensible.

"Hey, what you're doing is violating copyright and can bring a hefty fine! So why don't you stop it?"

Common sense is what we preach, but I have a feeling this won't be good enough for most here on /.
