    [quote user="Snooder"]That's not how the legal system works. See, copyright exists to create a cause of action. Licenses are a defense to that cause of action. If work is licensed poorly by the person asserting copyright, the effect is not to negate the defense of the person it is being...

    [quote user="blakeyrat"]Someone paid you for an hour's labor to set a ring tone?[/quote]I was there for other reasons, and was asked to set a ringtone while waiting for another party to arrive. I thought it'd be a simple matter - connect the phone, copy the file to it, set the file...

    [quote user="blakeyrat"]Windows Phone blows away iOS and Android right now. Blows them completely out of the water. But nobody will give the OS a chance, because it only has 47 flashlight apps instead of 47,000.[/quote]Give me something Lumia 620-sized (or maybe a bit smaller) with a better...

    [quote user="blakeyrat"]Doesn't matter. Any laptop built in 2002 could easily run Aero.[/quote]Not really - Aero requires DirectX 9-capable card with 128MB of memory. While nvidia did have their 5xxx mobile GPUs out in 2003, they were limited to 64MB RAM, and the barely Vista-compatible...
