Criterion = singular.  Criteria = plural
This reminds me of the South Park episode where Kyle says to Cartman, "That's not being nice ... that's just wearing a nice sweater,"  To which Cartman confusedly responds, " ... I don't understand the difference."     I think Samsung suffers from the same ethical deficiency ... not being able to understand the difference between "learning" from something, and outright copying.     "That's not 'learning' from Apple and the iPhone ... that's just copying."   "...
Google invented turn-by-turn navigation ...? That's sure news to me :s
I don't live in the San Diego Unified School District ... I live in Carlsbad.  I'd also prefer it if you could keep your self righteous and condescending observations to yourself ... most of which aren't even correct to begin with.  
How exactly is this a "reading comprehension problem"?  Yes, the money came from a voter approved initiative, but the original assertion I made that the District doesn't have any money and is laying off teachers, staff, closing schools, and cutting back on basic services ... yet buys 26,000 iPads.  Who cares if the money came from a voter initiative ... sure, the kids will have the latest technology, but there will be 60 kids to every teacher ... they still won't learn...
I find this interesting ... given that for the last four years the San Diego Unified School District has been shuttering schools and laying off thousands of support staff and teachers.  I was watching a report the other day on the local news that was talking about how the School District is still operating on a several million dollar budget shortfall, and was expected to cut back on several services.    While I think buying 26K iPads would help the educational...
Actually there have always been a lot of creative, open-minded, and revolutionary projects at Microsoft.  I have a brother-in-law that has worked at Microsoft in Redmond for the past 15 some-odd years, and periodically he's taken me into his project lab to show some of the things they're working on (obviously nothing secret enough he'd get fired for bringing me in).  The problem has never been innovation or creativity ... the REAL problem with Microsoft has always been...
Notice the reasoning here. "We probably won't do it because it would be 'too difficult.'" Not "We won't do it because it complete bull@#$%." Proview claims they hold the trademark to the iPad name in China ... great. Apple owns the trademark everywhere else, so there's nothing illegal about producing iPads in China and exporting them to countries where Apple does own the trademark (this is sidestepping the issue of whether or not Proview actually has a legitimate...
The thing is anyone who knows any of the facts behind this case immediately recognizes that China Proview's case is utter and complete bull@#$% - plain and simple. China has a rather well documented habit of ignoring international laws and norms when it comes to a question of a Chinese company versus a foreign company. If this case had been filed in just about any other G20 country it would have been thrown out in about 12 seconds. The entire premise is little...
THANK YOU!!! I was telling a friend a couple months ago that I keep on seeing these Mercedes-Benz's in my rearview mirror only to find out it's a Hyundai as it get's closer! It pisses me off too ... is such a blatant style ripoff. I, myself, am a Volvo man, but it really irks me that a car company would make their car look so much like another (far higher quality) car that it's hard to distinguish them from a distance. I can tell a BMW from a Mercedes, from a Lexus,...
