Vegas has already passed laws against the use of GG, you are not allow to have them in Casinos, but you can have a phone, but do not pull it out will playing and begin using it, they will tell you to turn it off. Also most gym now ban use of cell phone in locker rooms and such even if it does not have camera. So Laws are already on the book and are being up held in courts.   I actually went to one Casino out side the US and they would put tape over the camera and this was...
In typical Samsung fashion they just one ups Google and beat Apple to the real next great invention. NSFW  
There is a big different, having cameras in/on your home/property or business recording what others who visit your home and business are doing is one thing. However, walking into a someone home or business and recording them and than posting it for all to see is a complete violation of people's personal right to privacy.    Put another way, when you are in someone else's home or business you have no right to have expectation of privacy, it is there home, however, owner of...
This article is no surprise, there are lots of technologies which do not take into consideration the social aspects and are failures because of this. As people walk around with these devices and others realize what it is they will become more hostile towards it. Yes there are lots of camera's watching us ever day, but very few people actually notice them nor is streamed all over the world.  And when they do, like in stores which show your video as you walk around those...
To your point and something that ver few people know about. If anyone who accepts Fed Government Money for research and such are required by law to list the US government as a patent holder. It does not mean that it become public domain but it does mean the government shares in the profits from a case like this. Most Universities fail to list the government on the patents. This is also true to private sectors. There are lots of Bio-medical company which got funding from...
Not to say these will not show up in the US, but Apple and Intel both can keep legit US companies from selling these products. Most of this crap usually shows up on Amazon and Ebay. We know that Apple and Amazon are not friends these days so I wonder is Apple will attempt to force Amazon from letting the no name Chinese companies who sell the crap.
Okay how is this any different than IP phone, The cable operator were throttling connection to Vontage at one time and they got their hands slap by the FTC and told the operators that can not block or limit your access to other service like IP phone. I am not sure how a service provider can refuse to authenticate a service like HBO2go especially if you do not subscribe to their video service it not like they are loosing you business since you do not have it on the first...
So if Apple win and the DoJ obviously loses does that mean there was no pricing fixing at all and the publisher can asking for their money back since if apple was the kind pin and that proves out not be true then the case the DoJ had against the publisher was also not based in fact either. I said it before the Publish had wimps for lawyers and they advise their clients to settle verse fighting and it cost them more than if they fought.
It looks like the Publisher lawyers was a bunch of pussy, they advised their client to settle out of court as the less costly solution to the government coming after them. This is why the DoJ went after Apple. If Publisher lawyer was balls like apple and they all stood together the DoJ probably would have gone away.   The DoJ probably used the prisoner dilemma to get the publisher to fold.
I am not sure what this information shows, it could be as the article claims or it maybe an indication of something else going on, I am not sure good causality can be drawn here.    As one person pointed out it may show who is more narcissists that others. But would it surprise you that people with lots of disposable income are more narcissists and have a need to share every stupid things that do, and thinks the rest of the world also cares. It could also show...
