 But it is not misleading advertising because they (all mobile phone makers) never advertised the HD or flash memory size as how much space is available for user data. But that info is not impossible to find out. I'm sure it's stated in the mobile phone makers web site ……in small print …. right next to the info about loss space due to formatting.  If stating the size of the HD or flash memory that is installed in a device misleading, then all computers makers, from day...
Their only chance of winning lies in them drawing Judge Denise Cote to rule on the merit of the case.   
 Most studios wouldn't use B&O equipment because they don't sound neutral with their playback equipment. B&O and Bose speakers really only sound decent (and just decent) when using their own matching equipment. It has nothing to do with the cost of B&O equipment. Plus, sound engineers don't need to pay extra for speakers just because they look prettier, for studio use. But some consumers may if they're going to be using it in a living room. Specially if one has to take...
  Yeah, but the $2000 B&O speakers (or any B&O speakers for that matter) aren't anywhere near the "best" speakers you can buy. They (the speakers and the watch) are similar only in that they both appeal to people that rather have style over substance.   Back in the 80's and mid 90's when I was young (with better hearing) and visiting Hi End stereo stores to audition equipment, I would often see B&O systems (usually set up outside the main showrooms). And they weren't...
 The difference being that the injunction against Apple was based on a disagreement of the licensing of patents that were SEP. One of the stipulation of having your patent an SEP is that you must license it to everyone that wants to market a product that requires that patent and the license must be FRAND. Any disagreement of the licensing terms must be settle in court. Apple was willing to let a court decide on a fair licensing agreement. Motorola was not and demanded...
 But a site that provides illegally  pirated movies can also be providing perfectly legal contents. So in essence, the pirated movies is only a part of the site's contents. And yet the movie (and music) industry will demand the whole site shut down because they do not have a license for the pirated contents. How many file sharing sites have been shut down, even though pirated IP was not (though maybe close to with some sites) 100% of their contents?  
 Isn't that like saying that the movie industry can't have sites, that pirate their movies, shut down since the movie industry offer licenses of their movies to others? Therefore, their only recourse is to seek monetary compensation, if they can find out who own these sites (that pirate their movies), as no "irreparable" damage had occurred. 
  Not theoretical at all. But you're not working for some one driving a truck, you have to be the owner of the truck and thus you're running a business by hauling cargo for people or businesses that needs to move stuff over a long distance. And it's not just a truck but a semi tractor. And it's not an 8 hour a day job where you go home afterwards. It mostly will involve you crossing State lines with your haul, over several days or a week and living in your truck after a...
 There's not too many people trying to raise a family with a job at McDonalds because the pay is too low. But if the pay were to increase so you can, then you can forget about households that depends on a McDonald's job as a second or third income. And forget about teens getting any job experience during the summer or part time working for McDonald's. As the high turnover of those jobs there will no longer exist. It is utter nonsense to think that if businesses don't pay a...
 That's because automation decreased the amount of time it takes to do the same work. Thus you have the time to do more work.  UPS drivers have to deliver more packages now because the hand held computer scanner they now use informs them of their next stop, the best way to get there and where the package is located in his/her truck. The scanner keep track of every delivery in real time. There is no longer time needed to figure out the next delivery, look for the package in...
