Microsoft Killing Off Windows Phone Brand Name In Favor of Just Windows

daremonai Re:KIlling off the Microsoft Store Name Too (352 comments)

Windows Phone has 6% market share in Germany, the iPhone around 12-15%. Though both have been dropping of late.

Do you work at Microsoft Deutschland, by any chance?

No wonder the last quarter-pounder I had tasted a little odd.

Odder than usual, I mean.

Chinese Couple Sells Children To Support Online Game Addiction

daremonai Re:Silly season much (131 comments)

The 1 child law is being eased somewhat, but still, with unmarried parents, there would have been very strong pressure to get an abortion. Which is why I'm a bit skeptical about the story myself.

I watched the Chinese news broadcast, but, while it did feature prison interviews with both supposed parents, didn't really have a lot of details. Of course, there probably wouldn't be too many details given even if the story were true. Still, I found it less than convincing.

Uh-oh. So when they try to ship the stuff to the U.S., this might happen.

Amazon Escalates Its Battle Against Publishers

daremonai Re:Or rather, Hachette stopped shipping to Amazon. (218 comments)

Along those same lines, it should be noted that the paperback edition of "The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon" will not be out until October 7, 2014, so it's not too surprising it was shown as "unavailable." Actually, if you go to Amazon right now, it does list the paperback edition (http://www.amazon.com/Everything-Store-Jeff-Bezos-Amazon/dp/0593070461/) as available, but it looks like it's only from third-party sellers, who may have mixed up their hardcover and paperback listings. The hardcover edition is available from Amazon, and at a cheaper price than, say, Barnes and Noble.

Did Mozilla Have No Choice But To Add DRM To Firefox?

daremonai Re:I think... (406 comments)

Legal vs. illegal isn't particularly cut and dried in general. But arguments alone normally aren't illegal, provided they avoid weaponry and stay within reasonable volume limits. Admittedly, the second of these seems hard to achieve on the Internet.

I think he was on Beta Pic b, and the rotation was so fast it made him a little dizzy. He meant to post on Deadspin, but it ended up here instead.

Google: Better To Be a 'B' CS Grad Than an 'A+' English Grad

daremonai Re:Riiiiight (358 comments)

True. It's just that, judging by the average presentation I've seen / paper I've read, you're probably doing those jobs poorly.

Jimmy Wales To 'Holistic Healers': Prove Your Claims the Old-Fashioned Way

daremonai Re:Wikipedia ruined the internet (517 comments)

It's an encyclopedia, so one hopes there would be an article on string theory - which article, it should be noted, does have a "criticisms" section.

And there is an article on "Emotional Freedom Techniques" which looks to be fairly factual, as well as critical.
