Michigan Latest State To Ban Direct Tesla Sales

binarylarry Re:Maybe you can't (256 comments)

A title means you own the car and the registration means it's registered for driving in the state.

You don't need a registration to ship a vehicle you own out of state and registration is never required to have a title signed over to you. I've never heard anyone say "Before I can sell you this car and sign the title over I need you to go register the car!" Usually you need the title in your name (proof of ownership) before the DMV will let you register it in your name.

Michigan Latest State To Ban Direct Tesla Sales

binarylarry Re:Maybe you can't (256 comments)

Title implies ownership. If you're listed on the title as an owner, you have all legal rights to the vehicle. This does NOT imply the right to drive the vehicle on roads, just that you own the property and can sell it, modify it, give it away, whatever.

Registration means the vehicle has been registered with the state and you have the right to drive it (as long as all other requirements like driver licensing and insurance are met). When you register the vehicle, you usually get a license plate and a sticker to put on it, which allows the vehicle to be identified and for police to know the registration is current.

You can own vehicles without registering them for driving on the streets. In this case, you could buy the vehicle and have the title signed over to you and then have it put on a truck and shipped back to michigan. The DMV in michigan will be able to take your out of state title and convert it into a Michigan title. Once that's done, you can register the vehicle and drive it.

In the US, all of this varies from state to state, as driving and automobiles aren't under federal powers. However, they all work similarly.

'Microsoft Lumia' Will Replace the Nokia Brand

binarylarry Re:Recognition (150 comments)

Does this make anyone feel bad for Steve Ballmer?

The whole time I've assumed he was the reason Microsoft seemed to be run by idiots.

But with this and their other recent moves, Microsoft seems to be run by a gaggle of idiots. A flock even.

Blender 2.5 Stable Release

binarylarry binarylarry writes  |  more than 3 years ago

binarylarry (1338699) writes "The Blender Foundation and online developer community is proud to present Blender 2.57. This is the first stable release of the Blender 2.5 series, representing the culmination of many years of redesign and development work.

We name this version "Stable" not only because it's mostly feature complete, but especially thanks to the 1000s of fixes and feature updates we did since the 2.5 beta versions were published.

The next 2 months we will keep working on finishing a couple of left-over 2.5 targets and we expect to get feedback and bug reports from users to handle as well. If all goes well, the 2.58 version then can be the final release of the 2.5 series, with a massive amount of new projects to be added for an exciting cycle of 2.6x versions. Target is to release updates every 2 months this year."

Stardock rescinds "Gamers Bill of Rights"

binarylarry binarylarry writes  |  more than 4 years ago

binarylarry (1338699) writes "Stardock’s own Gamer’s Bill of Rights is no longer to be found on their site. That’d be the Bill of Rights featuring the proud bulletpoint:

“2. Gamers shall have the right to demand that games be released in a finished state.”

You used to be able to find the bill right here.

PC Gamer are up in arms about it being unfinished in a similar manner to earlier Stardock release, DemiGod, which also came out earlier than its announced release date. PCG go on to quote a post from Stardock CEO Brad Wardell on the Quarter to Three forums in which he responds to a displeased customer, seemingly in absolute contradiction of his own Rule #2:

“the hostility in this thread exceeds my own tolerance for putting up with said hostility.

Also, to anyone, like you Ben, saying the game is like an “early beta” then well, please stay away from our games in the future. I consider it ready for release and if others disagree, don’t buy our games.”

We’ve contacted Stardock for a comment and are awaiting a response."

Apple bans Adobe CS5 Flash Compiler

binarylarry binarylarry writes  |  more than 4 years ago

binarylarry (1338699) writes "Looks like Adobe's release of CS5 with the Flash-to-native compiler has been nixed by Apple's new user agreement:

"3.3.1 — Applications may only use Documented APIs in the manner prescribed by Apple and must not use or call any private APIs."

When did Apple become the most evil technology company on the planet? I bet the folks at Google are feeling really good about Android's future prospects. This ban also affects MonoTouch and other non Objective-C development platforms for the iPhone/iPad and similar Apple devices."
