it's not that new.

with an fft and engine sound database, you could get a not-too-terrible result in an hour or two just using nearest-neighbor methods. it's not totally trivial, but it's something i would expect an undergraduate to be able to do as homework.
try reading the paper about shazam's core method. it's amazingly simple (which isn't to say they haven't done a lot of work tweaking it of course).
yeah, like how if you anally rape someone, it doesn't count as rape because it's not sex.
frankly, the activist gays have mostly settled down now; they had their day in the sun and have now won at least 90% of what they wanted, and just want to go to sleep. meanwhile, the Republican party has renewed their banging of pots and pans against them in a battle they lost over 30 years ago and now can only be noisy about. of course this voting generation of gays are going to tend to vote Democrat. going Republican would almost be gratuitous contrarianism, especially when there are third-parties which are much more deserving than either of the major parties.
it's a lost cause, and it makes for cynical-sounding arguments. if it makes you feel any better, the next generation will be different.
hell, it just occurred to me that gays may well be the next generation's bulwark for family values. they've definitely gone down the toilet in heterosexual culture; the gays and lesbians who actually remember not being able to marry, whether you agree with them or not, are going to care a lot more about the subject than the average person.
IT Workers are too independently-minded to form a union! Such blue-collar collectivism is far beneath them.
They don't seem to mind working for free, though. Apparently, they're not that independently-minded.
well, yeah, but that would be enough to solve it for the rich, and it's cheaper too.
even if you subscribe to the China-subverting-consumer-devices conspiracy theory (admittedly not as crazy as most other conspiracy theories), China would be better off taking the Apple money and investing that in other sabotage. counterfeiting iPhone hardware would inevitably be discovered and be catastrophic for China's tech industry.
that's because they actually want the problem solved because it affects them. the usual snake-oil salesmanship isn't that useful when you actually need the product.
in the end, the solution is euthanasia; let's face facts: some people just aren't that useful. we could shelter heroin addicts and give them subsidized junk until they die; with a competitive market and/or state-run chem lab for synthesis, it wouldn't even cost much, and it's not exactly an unpleasant way to go. even in SF, you could fit enough junkies per square meter to make it a cost-effective solution.
of course not everyone is a heroin addict, but parts of the principle still apply. also there's nothing wrong with a little "nudge" in that direction as long as it's not publicly recognized as coercion.
do you have a cite about getting the software installed at Foxconn? even if it were true, it's not necessarily relevant if Apple uses a sufficiently elaborate signing mechanism, as they seem to do. i'm still kind of curious about this for some reason.
Hillary Clinton took Satan's Cock in order to gain Unholy Powers and Birth the Antichrist!

i'd be really surprised if Apple outsourced their firmware development to Foxconn without auditing the shit out of it. they're pretty obsessive about that.
will Apple also be taking advantage of this moment to hastily shut down the iPhone 6+ "screen death touch" outrage that's brewing?
well, at least now i'm starting to agree with "conservatives" that women are humorless and emotional.
First they came for those providing instruction and training to recognized terrorist groups...
