Welcome to the service based economy
What you said is completely false, untrue, and incorrect.
A tenant may not assign the lease without the landlord’s written consent. The landlord may withhold consent without cause. If the landlord reasonably refuses consent, the tenant cannot assign and is not entitled to be released from the lease. If the landlord unreasonably refuses consent, the tenant is entitled to be released from the lease within 30 days from the date the request was given to the landlord. Real Property Law § 226-b(1).
Tenants with leases who live in buildings with four or more apartments have the right to sublet with the landlord’s advance consent. Any lease provision restricting a tenant’s right to sublease is void as a matter of public policy. If the landlord consents to the sublet, the tenant remains liable to the landlord for the obligations of the lease, including all future rent. If the landlord denies the sublet on reasonable grounds, the tenant cannot sublet and the landlord is not required to release the tenant from the lease. If the landlord denies the sublet on unreasonable grounds, the tenant may sublet anyway. If a lawsuit results, the tenant may recover court costs and attorney’s fees if a judge rules that the landlord denied the sublet in bad faith. Real Property Law § 226-b(2)
So Microsoft is not only killing Gamefly but is killing GameStop as well.
Well, I’m all in favor of killing GameStop.
If Microsoft really wanted to conquer the living room once and for all, they would have put a CableCard slot into it.
I switched to TiVo because the cost of a TiVo subscription is the same as the monthly rental fee for the cable company’s box. Tell people that they can knock $15 per month of their cable bill if they buy an XBox and they will beat a path to your door.
If it installs to the HDD and you don’t need the game disc and you only pay a fee to reinstall on another account…
Why not go in with a bunch of friends, buy a new game, and install it on a bunch of accounts with only the reinstall fee being paid?
For example – let’s say Madden 2245 costs $60. And reinstalls cost $20 per additional account.. 5 people go in on the game.
For 5 people, before that would be $300. But, under this, it’s the new game and 4 reinstalls ($80) for only $140.
Either Microsoft didn’t think this through or there’s more to it than what Microsoft said.

So it has (out of the gate) only twice as much storage as the 360, won’t play my 360 games, will charge me a fee for used games, and the only real compelling feature is that it may be a TiVO killer.
Well shitohdear! I like my TiVo and have no desire to replace or supplement it.
So why should I get this thing?

But that begs the question: why go back to using iTunes?
Here’s the thing…
I can’t use iTunes on my Android phone. And iPhoners can’t use GMPAA on their iPhones. And by the numbers, this means that GMPAA has iTunes beat by more than 2:1.
Meanwhile, on the home front, if I want to use iTunes, I have to fire up iTunes, a notoriously bloated piece of software. In fact, as an Android user, I don’t even have iTunes anymore because all of my music is in my Google account. But, because GMPAA is web-based, all one needs is a browser. So, while I have no need or interest to even have iTunes, GMPAA is just a url away.
In that way, I think Google is a bit more effective at gaining new users.

Apple is appealing the denial of an injunction. One of the reasons the One X failed was because Apple won an injunction against the importation of the handset.
The best way to outsell your competitor is to prevent him from selling anything.
Do you know what this means?
This means that Apple is now fighting both Samsung and Google in the AVS lawsuit.
At least they won’t sell out of phones like with the Nexus 4
Why? Because you’re a cheap bastard?
Amazon could actually succeed at this. Given the amount of crap any given person buys on Amazon, basically, all you’re doing is getting a 10% discount.
Plus, if it has the ability to transfer Amazon bucks between users, then it will work for the same reason that PayPal works – it’s a good way to hide money from the IRS.
Yes. Through eviction.
An illegal sublet is a breach of a material term of the lease.
I hope to hell that the court sides with the City.
As a landlord, I get to choose who occupies my premises. It’s the entire reason for putting in a no subletting provision. Moreover, as the landlord, I and I alone have the right to exploit the premises. The only property rights that I am giving are the right to occupy (contingent on payment of rent) and the right to quiet enjoyment of the premises.
Some tenant illegally subletting the apartment exposes ME to liability.
Yay! Let’s give money to a bigoted homophobic piece of shit!
Seriously, don’t see this movie unless you want to pad the coffers of the anti-LGBT crowd.
