Billions of dead sardines are blanketing the sea bottom and floating on the surface of the water this morning at King Harbor Marina in Redondo Beach, and officials are trying to figure out what happened.
"The Tunguska event is the largest impact event over land in Earth’s recent history. Impacts of similar size over remote ocean areas would have gone unnoticed before the advent of global satellite monitoring in the 1960s and 1970s.”
Who can possibly own an idea? Should we allow our litigation system to be clogged with patent and copyright infringement cases? What happens when settlement is simpler and cheaper than an idealogical battle you can win?
The Mac software market is about as old-school as you get. Developers have been creating, shipping, and selling products through traditional channels and at traditional price points for decades.
Heck, I ran a Mac software company back in the 1980s and 1990s, and although we sold products mostly in boxes, rather than on the Internet, our prices back then weren’t much different than the price points we see today.
