Again, the law not very clear. The right of "first sale" states that you have the right to sell works that you purchase without the permission of the copyright holder. But this appears to only be valid for physical copyrighted works, not digital. So in your case, it would be illegal to buy an iTunes cd, burn it and then give or sell it to a friend since you still have possession of the original copy (and technically always will hold a digital license even if you delete...
I'm not a lawyer, but have spent considerable time tying following such things. And I'm assuming you are in the US, since copyright law varies widely in different regions. 1 - Sort of. Circumventing copy protection is not legal. But the idea of being able to use purchased media in different capacities for personal use does come under fair use. It's really a mess here. Since CDs have no copy protection it is legal to rip them to your computer and ipod for personal...
iTunes and OS X should have an optional bittorrent client built in order to distribute media and updates (legally. media would be DRM stamped by itunes during download as usual, but the data can come from anywhere). That would be thinking different (and save on their operating costs).
College isn't a scam if you do it right. (Of course colleges are in it for money, but a student can get something out of it too) It's that perfect balance of class/learning, socially maturing, meeting the right people (who will get you jobs), enjoying your youth, etc. Studying long hours every night for four years is just about as useless as going out drinking every night for 4 years. The point of college isn't grades, its to mature from a stupid kid into a...
Welcome to 12 months ago. Kidding. Probably one of the best albums of 2008. If you haven't seen the music video for "Time to pretend" then you might revisit with your original assessment of "Trippy" -- seriously trippy. Edit: HQ link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVnRzEjpUmE
From Apple.com: It’s also easy to upgrade your iTunes library to iTunes Plus. You don’t have to buy the song or album again. Just pay the 30¢ per song upgrade price. (Music video upgrades are 60¢ and entire albums can be upgraded for 30 percent of the album price.)
I agree that iPhone and OS X do need some work... but as I mentioned in another thread; "iPod was introduced in October 2001... not exactly the best climate of economic stability and consumer confidence." Plus they continued to open retail stores across the country - 51 by the end of 2002. Sure the iPod was done and ready before 9/11, but they could have sat on it for a few months. They didn't and launching a new product line and continuing to open retail stores seemed...
Indeed, the interwebs are unusually quiet for this time of year. Almost too quite....
Remember the iPod was introduced in October 2001... not exactly the best climate of economic stability and consumer confidence. SJ said then and it still holds true now, Apple innovates it's way out of tough times.
Agreed.. Could someone post a comparison of Full DVI, Displayport, and Mini Displayport?
