Around the same amount of time before Windows 7's release there was already a lot of excitement, I think time is running out for MS, third party tools can only do so much.

(btw I wonder if the creator of the 8Start launcher is inadvertently benefiting from this issue  cheesy )

not figure out how to get the tool set up.

If in 2012 this is still a barrier then Linux is forever doomed <==== this may be a obvious, blatant generalization but nevertheless holds true in enough cases to matter

Get those calls here in Canada too, funniest part is the first line they use already means they must be up to no good.

I can confidently claim that this is the case in many forums and message boards and DC is actually not a 'good' example of what you are saying. It is just something that has happened to the internet as a very broad community.

FlatPress is a good option in my opinion but I wouldn't go for flat files because of a host, for other reasons like preference or needs sure but not because of a host.

842  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: WordPress bundle: $59 instead of $609! on: March 09, 2012, 01:42:29 PM
In my opinion the site has to be business, client sign up type oriented site for the above bundle. Things like Mad Mimi, Hello Bar, Sendible are not wholly justifiable for "less ambitious" kind of sites.
Themes can be good but again if you use them, Site5 hosting the same.

Protecting their way is part of the "profit". How? they will go down in flames otherwise so lower profits for longer time is better than conceding.

How do they know that?  And if they go down in the process because they hung on to the old ways in the interest of protecting perceived profit instead of adapting to change their business model to keep up with their consumers, then don't they lose out in the end?  Because that's the way things are going...

Even the language- conceding instead of serving.  In the end, if you depend upon a consumer for your livelihood, you are in the business of serving, not competing with your clientele.  So in order to serve them (and in the end yourself), it would seem to behoove you to listen to and work with your customers instead of digging your feet in an alienating your client base.

Thoughts?

The board of director types see your downloading exactly as that. They see you using megaupload as competing with their not free version.

They might call it "shareholder value" or "the interests of the corporation" and just because it is interpretable in a court (many 'higher' laws are challenged in court too) doesn't mean it's not being practiced.

But I've heard it's insanity to continue to do the same things and get the same (or worse) results.  Their current tactics are *not* resulting in increased profits.  The amount they spend on lobbyists and the amount of ill-will they create far outweigh the few results they do get.

Even when shown the truth, they still fight against it.  Case in point- Apple wanted to increase the length of the samples available in iTunes because research had shown that this increased purchases. [1], [2]

Even given this, the music industry fought against it, first saying no, then attempting to get performance rights for a 60-90 second clip.  Greed is the only explanation for something that's better for the consumers and the publishers to be held for ransom like this.

One possible explanation:
Protecting their way is part of the "profit". How? they will go down in flames otherwise so lower profits for longer time is better than conceding.

Living in a society/system where in some jurisdictions public companies are required by law to maximize profits it is almost naive to expect less from them. They will suffer some of the consequences - it is irrelevant how much those consequences are exaggerated by them - but will not stop, guaranteed.

Be back after I read it fully.
