Re: TouchAble - complete controller for Ableton Live & IPAD

TouchAble is pretty incredible! Psychotic props to the devs. Congrats on getting it through the App Store gauntlet. I can't believe I have to shut it down and go sleep! Hope I won't be shelling out continuously for "native templates". Oh well, whatever... Dear Apple: please bring out a 17" iPad. Kth...

Re: cell phone size projector

Wait for Microvision's PicoP projection technology to hit the market - it uses frickin' lasers! And a cool scanning mirror.

Re: OT: The death penalty for cracked software - too harsh?

Interesting that the 'napster' generation (the 21-30 yr olds) majority think it's OK to pirate software, whereas the kids (u20s) so far are against it. And that the pre 'napster' generation of 31 years plus are more against than for pirate software. Tiny, non-random data set, to be sure, but it is ...

And that seems to sort of summarize this issue.

Some people see an inherent truth in that statement.
And some people see it as flatly incorrect.

Different worldviews, I guess. :?

I ensure you rjbourc that you could read threads about this on hundreds of other forums from around the world every single day for hours at a time until the day you die, on this topic. True, and you could have just skipped over this one. :) Sorry, but it's the music software-specific aspect of this...

Re: OT: The death penalty for cracked software - too harsh?

when I really stop to think about it I don't really believe in patents. Imagine if the man who invented the wheel had patented it, he would have been the king of the world by now. Well, probably by now his patent would have expired... 8O The idea of a patent is to bestow a modest exclusionary perio...

OT: The death penalty for cracked software - too harsh?

Sorry about the inflammatory post title (eh, not really). Just trying to understand this issue a little better. The "press" tells me this is a generational issue. To me, it's totally obvious that using cracked software is outright thievery - clearly not a universally held belief. What's your (oversi...
