Windows A California man is suing Microsoft, alledging that his Surface tablet did not provide the advertised amount of disk space. The 32G device has 16G of space for users, as the operating system uses the other 16G. The 64G Surface leaves 45G free for users. The case will turn on whether Microsoft has clearly explained to customers how much free space the Surface leaves for their use outside of the OS. How much disk space does your OS consume?

Please read number 3 below...

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/injury


Uh, did you even read that thing yourself? If the law said women aren't allowed to vote then there would indeed be no legal redress and it would not be an injury, just as the dictionary link you gave says.



This one says the same thing.

or any legal dictionary...

And here, too.

I don't get your point.

Dont be so dense. The point of the women's suffrage movement was to establish the laws allowing legal redress. Just because the injury comes before the law doesn't change anything - denying a woman to vote is causing injury - the proof of that is laws were established to disallow the practice.

Would you say that slavery caused injury only after it was outlawed? Your either just arguing for the sake or arguing are simply don't understand what you are talking about.

No, I just disagree with you. Slavery in and of itself wasn't injury either, though it did cause injuries. Slavery -- just as not having voting rights -- is all about having or not having something, and well, not having something that someone else has just ain't injury, it's inequality. Injury, on the other hand, is all about deprivation of something you'd otherwise have by one or another party.

Also, you were the one who linked to the dictionary definitions and now you're telling me to disregard them.
