  • the following are excerpted from the deleted posts. i believe them to be pertinent to the discussion without being offensive to those in control. "Nice try, but installing OS X on a non-Apple computer is in no way the same as shoplifting from Wa…
  • "If I buy my popsicle, why should there be limitations on what I can do with it if I'm not using the stick, broken in half, to cut peoples' throats with?" and if you buy it under a particular set of terms, why should you be allowed to ignore these …
  • "Did you notice the name of the thread?" yep, not one word mentioned about licenses. "We were talking about copyrights and such." nope. i was simply asserting and subsequently supporting that end user license agreements are not necessarily bas…
  • "I assumed that we were talking, for the sake of this discussion, about the licensing that results from copyright" this begs the question. you're attempting to support your assertion that "EULA is based upon copyright" by limiting the discussion t…
  • "As we aren't talking about Burger King and franchises, which is what you are talking about there, not licenses, I didn't think to bring it up." since the formation of a binding end user licensing agreement bears no greater onus than any other lice…
  • "Yes, it is" well, that was certainly a well supported assertion. why would any licensing agreement have to be based on copyright law? seems that burger king isn't overly concerned with copyright law in the licensing agreement that they have with…
  • "EULA is based upon copyright" not necessarily. "In the States where shrinkwrap is recognized" there is a distinction between shrinkwrap and clickwrap licenses and distinction is rather important in determining the validity of a contract regard…
  • "Microsoft had it right. They provided software to their customers to run on computer hardware which they didn't produce or have rights to." and it was their right to do so. "Apple should follow suit and port/optimize a version of MAC OSX to wor…
  • "Everybody knows that most people never read the EULA" ever heard that ignorance is no excuse? "so it's questionable whether it really is a binding contract" not really, there's plenty of case law supporting the use of clickwrap licenses as bin…
  • "Had you actually followed the discussion..." let me if i can follow this: 1) melgross makes a post about the rights of the licensor. 2) in reference to this post, you claimed "It says that you can create a copy of X material for personal use…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Gene Clean Limitations on exclusive rights: Computer programs... duh, really? do you really believe that i'm unaware of that section, particularly in light of the fact that i cited and gave a brief description of i…
  • there have been some particularly idiotic assertions made concerning copyrights, fair use and the dmca over the past few years. most of these have been repeated in these forums and specifically in this thread. since these assertions are born of i…
  • [quote]Originally posted by TigerWoods99: AH well. It'll be el cheapo education cost of the cd prices for me from now on. That or pirate it (OH NO!! HERE COMES ANOTHER ATTACK OF PPL SAYING I SHOULDNT PIRATE APPLE'S OS!). SOrry folks, I've sp…
  • my theory is that this is a bit of a ruse. i figure that apple is willing to subsidize the cost of these services o a certain extent for each os 9 & os x system. this leaves apple with 3 major problems. 1) users with multiple accounts - curren…
  • pardon my ignorance, i didn't tune into the keynote until after jaguar was discussed. is it at all possible that $129 is retail price for the 80% that haven't switched to os x yet and that there will be an upgrade (at a lesser price) for those who …
  • [quote]Originally posted by Smircle: Just received the offer below from Apple Dev Support. The wording is a strong indication that Jaguar is not slated for release before the end of Aug, because afterwards the "seed" would be worthless. i think …
  • [quote]Yes, it would. You either add it to the compilation pipeline or include it in gcc and CodeWarrior. The developer wouldn't need to do everything different, just press compile in ProjectBuilder or CW and the optimizer is automatically called. …
  • [quote]Originally posted by wfzelle: I've seen some very nice examples. They were interesting to me and easy to understand. I'm not even into low-level coding, so that means they were pretty good. Go take a look around at altivec.org and…
  • [quote]Originally posted by Aquatik: Sizzle chest: market share. That in turn creates mind share, as well as the economies of scale making Macs cheaper. I'd rather see Apple sacrifice profit for a while to increase market share. In the end this…
  • off topic, sorry. [quote] Originally posted by Blackcat: All the prices need lowering. It's better to sell 2 Macs at $2500 than 1 at $3500. and Originally posted by mattbr: given the current margins (30%), the cost of a $3.5k machine is $…
