WP running Android apps is a bad idea because devs would stop developing WP apps. But making it possible to compile an Android app into a WP app package for the WP store could be a great idea. That way as far as the public is concerned its a WP app. The app store grows as apps would be so quick to port that there would be no reason not to. The net benefit in the could then lead to more apps being built natively for WP if the customer base grows.
 As opposed to squares?  How do you hide them? Why would I complain about apps in a store, there in a store. Apps on the Apple TV are on it's main screen. The Sky box UI isn't pretty but it's got a decent search that search's all the content from all sources in one format. Don't know what you mean about lag, seems fairly instant.  1. Why would I care if they store the design? I'm a consumer not the person they copied it from.2. Didn't realise the subscription to active....
I hope Apple at least do something, anything. The first Apple TV was amazing, but now its becoming a bit of a joke. They've made it look like its got apps but you cant add to them, even worse your stuck with ones like WSJ which aren't even relevant to tot country your in! For things like streaming films or tv its now not the best and also the most expensive option. E.g. Some tvs have it built in, cable boxs have it built in, games consoles have it built and they have...
Im in the buy it camp, but if i just want to listen to an album at work I'm generally streaming it now. Its hard to justify paying £8 for an album when you can listen to it for free. I still happily buy music to put on my phone for the car. But at home and work it doesn't make sense when its the exact same experience and I don't hit the 10 hour limit where you start paying.
 Law's are slightly vague like this to make it harder to get around. The general gist of what you've quotes is just saying you can't con people into paying to much for something that isn't worth it. In terms of no obvious rules though, what about...  If I bought a phone with a 2 year contract I would expect "safe, lasting, with no faults" to mean it would last the 2 years. Not if it broke in the second year I would have to pay to have it repaired. If I bought a Mac for...
Not sure what you mean, I was agreeing with you. If you have shares in a company that could be affected by a job that your doing and your in this kind of position. Then there would be a conflict of interest. All I added was that having stocks in any company that could be affected by a patent would create a conflict of interest. If she bought a load of stocks in medical company that relies on patents that would also be a conflict.
That's great, but my question was what job would they have been doing? I'm certain that are lots of people with legal and tech backgrounds, but to avoid a conflict you need one that hasn't worked for a tech firm or legal firm. But has also gained enough experience to be in a very senior role. Other that working at the patent office all you life, I just don't get what job you could have been doing to gain that much knowledge / proven talent without creating a situation...
 A big part of the original idea was to stop the threat of Sony being able to take the market and create a product that meant people might not need a PC. So in that regards if the PlayStation had achieved what the iPad now has then it was a relatively small price to pay. I'm sure if they could be offered to pay that amount to remove the iPad from existence they would. It has also been making a profit for the last few years. Doubt they've paid back the losses yet...
Thousands, really? What do they do? I don't disagree with the argument having a person from an industry then become involved in the regulation of that industry can lead to a conflict of interest. It absolutely can as they can either be lenient to the company they worked for, or dislike and then actively be against. But the industry also tends to be where all the most qualified people are. Other than people that started work at the patent agency, who else really has expert...
Not really. Unless the article is missing something it sounds like she no longer works at Google. Very few people stay loyal to their previous employer who is no longer paying them. In most cases the opposite happens as people poach the good people and ideas from their previous employer. In this instance Google also now has the disadvantage that the deputy director of the Patent office knows everything about their patent strategy. That's not exactly a particularly great...
