    As english is your first language you can help me understand what you meant by the bolded formulation.

    a) you cannot help the snobbism
    b) you interpret snobbism in the previous criticism
    c) you cannot re-consider the context and interpret something else
    d) ?

    So you reach externally, to get a physical proof/confirmation of a third party acting as authority over your "intellectual property" (something formed by your intellect), enforcing that category of ownership to others. Who would otherwise attempt to "steal intellectual property" from you. Which you own. With your intellect. Confirmed by material proof. That the mental form is yours. And no one else's. Who might steal it. Mentally. While it's yours really.

    Monkeys would hoard a stick and bite and fight themselves who gets it. Though interestingly they wouldn't go so far as to hoard a few hundred billion berries.

    Hey all,

    Let's think about the following:

    I trust we can all admit that there are some true development costs inherent to finding the right ingredients that compose the end product.
    We can also agree that somehow these costs must be covered for the continuation of development cycles and the future of the ecosystem that all customers have invested in.
    .
    1. A gaming company makes up the console development costs by selling games at a viable markup.
    2. A soft drink company makes up costs by selling products at a viable markup.
    3. A camera company makes up costs by selling tested and certified (even rebadged) accessories at a markup that makes it all viable.

    The list goes on.

    Any third party can step in, ignore all inherent costs involved in developing a sustainable ecosystem like those of the examples above and release a cheaper substitute for a fraction of the cost and claim a "just close enough" end product that is either endorsed or not endorsed by the original manufacturer.
    Endorsement is entirely up to the original manufacturer and their internal decisions on how this will affect the future and sustainability of the ecosystem.
    .
    1. As a console gamer, it would suck if after buying an expensive console you only got 2-3 games before the manufacturer declared bankruptcy because a third party undercut them.
    2. As a soft drinks consumer, it would suck if the manufacturer shut down production of a drink you've loved for years simply because a cheap imitation slapped a label that self proclaimed their product is the best substitute and managed to fool a large percentage of consumers into thinking they were consuming the actual thing (remember, not all taste buds work the same way)
    3. As a cinematographer or photographer it would ruin your livelihood if after investing time and money to develop a workflow based on a specific camera ecosystem, the manufacturer shut down production simply because a cheap imitation came to market, ignored all development costs and offered an assembly of similar components based on the reverse engineered recipe that was enough to undercut the chance of the original manufacturer to sustain viability.

    All of these practices can only guarantee the premature death of any healthy ecosystem and would have the user base for any of the above examples on a war footing, trying to crowdfund a rescue for the company who's products they invested so much time, money, taste and appetite for.

    Support the imitators and you kill the future.

    What Joke thinking is this. Profit Margin....understand?.
    I bet you can find many places in the world, where labor is much cheaper than China, like in Tanzania or better educated, like say Czech Republic or Slovakia or sizable, like in India. Case solved, move the production there and enjoy the huge profit margins... Except, without the proper infrastructure it doesn't matter. There are literally thousands of highly specialized suppliers required to assemble Mr iPhone. If even one of them fails, then the whole operation would grind to a halt and there goes your profit margins. And that is why Apple moved the MacPro assembly line from Texas to China.
    Only a few places in the world with a proper infrastructure, raw materials, low taxation and government regulations, plentiful suppliers and inexpensive trained workforce could support the production of Mr iPhone, understand?

    I was under the impression that you could not, in fact, simply slap an SSD into a RedMag and expect it to work. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that the company in question had to spoof hardware IDs and firmware in order to get it recognized by the camera? I'd have to watch the videos again, but I can't stand the pretentious rants and ramblings of whoever is behind the camera.

    I.O.W. profit margin is leading and when it isn't, just tax the middle class. It doesn't matter where you are, it's the same in every region and/or country, US, China, Vietnam, India, Germany, etc...

    Logic suggests that IP controls will hinder innovation to some degree. That said, from a capitalist perspective, if there was no protection for the fruits of R&D effort then investment would dry up fast. Ideally, there would be a viable arbiter of IP claims, with actual international authority, that protected genuine innovation in a fair way. Not holding my breath.

    Here in our corner of the global economy, professional media content creation, we are dependent on a third party to protect the economic value of our work. Various DRM strategies might slow them down, but AFAIK every scheme to date has been hacked. Gee Blair, if entertainment media loses it's economic value so easily, why are the big players investing so much in creating content? IMO, they are creating demand for bandwidth that will become the primary income stream down the road. Charging per GB makes pirating media pointless. As I have suggested several times in the past, it's all about bandwidth, bandwidth, bandwidth.

    Wrong again Habib. Just keep manufacturing in your country USA. Quality will improve as well. Stop giving us JP Morgan bullshit!

    Who is Habib? Is that some Czech or Slovak putdown, that I'm not aware of?
    I just explained to you, that among many things, USA lacks the necessary infrastructure to produce modern consumer electronics. Production of some parts are outright impossible in USA, as that production will never pass the existing OSHA and environmental rules. China doesn't have too worry about the impact on the environment, as much as West does. That's why Paris accord was a joke.
    Have you heard of rare earth metals? Not long time ago USA produced the majority of those metals, but now close to 90 percent is produced in China, because the process of turning ore into metal is extremely toxic and it became impossible to produce those metals in US. Without those metals it is impossible produce pretty much any electronic devices.
    Do you still think this is JP Morgan bullshit?
    And what does any of this have to do with JinnyMag?
    And why am I arguing with you? Nedáváš smysl
