If a video is posted to Flickr under a Creative Commons license, what's the legality of grabbing it with one of the video downloader sites (download button doesn't function)?

    Yep, I plan on attributing the respective owners, it's just that Flickr is making me confused because they won't let me download the video by clicking the button, yet I've chosen to only search for videos that are licensed in such a way that allows for modifications and distribution.

    Are you talking about trying to download a video from someone else? If so, then that means the user has chosen to not download. So the users can not download at all because of the account's settings. Same way to the photos as well.

    Yes, talking about other people's videos. So that's a user setting, then? What's the point?

Godzilla is coming out today, and I can't afford to get it right now. I was hoping to watch it with my cousins when I stay with them for a convention next week

I wonder if it's possible for Microsoft to release a special WIndows 8 app to try the Threshold Alpha. No fussing with VMs or lost data.

    What I was think was more along the lines of the "app" being the Threshold Alpha, that you could launch and exit as you would any other Metro app.

    So build the entire preview in HTML 5 and c++?

Checked the amount due for my uncoming final car payment. Nearly twice the usual payment. I can swing it, but it'll cripple my meager savings account. Thankfully without the car payment each month I'll be able to replenish it quickly.

    That's a wise decision. It took me a LONG time to convince my girlfriend to pay off her credit cards with her savings for the same reason. Not paying that interest every month replenished her savings quickly.

Mattias Olsson vilken modell och märke är detta? då jag inte vet exakt vilka specifikationer den bärbara datorn har så kan jag bara gissa mig fram men gissar på att du missat att uppdatera grafikkortets drivrutiner och möjligt att du också missat att göra en Prestandaklassificering av datorn

Perhaps others will come to appreciate this someday . . . http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc723472.aspx It should have been in Windows Vista.

So, is Neowin gonna change the forum layout too at some point? Or was it just for the home page?

    I just wish they change the blue color in the forums to the same one used in the front page header....

    it bugs me a little that they are not the same.

    Hey, you're right! They're not! Being color-blind, I tend to ignore stuff like that . . .

I really hope Cortana and Interactive Live Tiles appear for the Threshold Alpha.

    I like the idea of Interactive Live Tiles. While I would like Cortana to be included, I am not sure how I would feel about her if she removed or replaced the Speech Recognition feature introduced in Windows Vista.

    I would love to see Cortana in Threshold. I can never seem to get the Speech Recognition deal to work.

The new iPhone looks ok, if you're into Apple's stuff. I see no reason for me to switch from my Lumia 1520 and WP 8.1, though.

always remember 9/11 ... the day when the free world and the best country in the world got attacked by insane cowards. jihadists have declared war on the free world and our lifestyle. we need to keep that in mind and fight back every day.

    first rule to become educated: never assume!
    that rule also prevents you from missjudgements and blatant errors.

    Yeah Jack, i'm sure you're a nice guy, and i don;t know you personally but surely following that rule yourself, you wouldn;t have stated such misguided things in the first place? It's good you love the country you live in, but don't talk about other places you've clearly never been to. As a European i take offence and surely you can see why?

It seems like Republicans are spending a lot of effort to scare Americans about ISIS.
