more bureaucracy + more insane laws != more security
Just what we need here in the U.S., more bureaucracy. Why not just pressure the industries and agencies to fix their own flaws. You know this is just going lead to more insane laws.
Anonymity is something that the U.S. gov't wants to eliminate altogether.
Have we misread the tea leaves
While we were concerned about big bad m$ taking over the world, g$ snuck up behind us as a wolf in sheep's clothing. Many speculate that g$ is working on as os, possibly cloud based. What happens if g$ owns not only our desktops and the internet, but our information and our culture also. At least m$ was only wanted our pc's.
Former Interent service rep
As a former ISR of a well known cable company, I can tell you that they (the corporate big wigs) don't really give a shit about their customers. This trickles down to lowly employees also. They have a policy of three strikes and your out based solely off of info provided by the RIAA which simply tied to an IP addy. While the IPs are dynamic, they rarely change.
This approach by the riaa would completely fall apart if everyone who does bit torrent sharing would start using proxies. It would have the effect of completely making all IP evidence completely unreliable. Maybe all BT clients should start wirting something into their code that by default use tor or something similar. Problem solved, Freetards happy and $$$tards thwarted again!
Some new tires?
Excuse me, you wanker, but your choice of entertainment sucks! Kindly return the basement from whence you emerged. I believe mommy will be missing you soon and we mustn't be out past dark. The adults are talking now so sod off. No thanks necessary.
Linux on desktop
My father is a 56 yeat old factory worker with no technical skills or knowledge, but I set him up on Linux after my sister trashed the hell out of his XP install with limewire, he has had no problems with it.
Its not so complicated. . .
all Apple need do is say install OSX on anything you like, but we will only support it on approved hardware. The hardware manufacturers can provide support for their own machines. Apple makes more money and pc customers get more choice, it's a win-win.
I assume ...
though that this doesn't absolve one from intra-laptop searches. Carefull about those "holiday photos" wink, wink nudge, nudge.
No bog deal . . .
I have used both Xandros and Freespire and neither one was anything to write home about. If any Linux distro would be likely to sell out to M$, it would be Xandros. I expect within the next few years to see them sell out to create a M$ branded distro of Linux. And if anyone thought cnr was a good idea, well kiss it goodbye now, at least the free version, anyway.
A new plan of attack . . .
What these two need is a new plan of attack. Gore would only be the beginning. They need to declare this as environmentally destructive, then they could famous movie stars with IQ's approximately equal to chances of these guys winning their suit. Then you could get green peace and the sierra club on board too. All you would need then were some trumped up claims of scientific consensus.
Paris cuz she's be against it. Mini black holes and strangelets just aren't fashionable.
I smell a new hollywood franchise.
This reads more like a sci fi script. Is this for real? Maybe the war commanders of the world have come to their senses and decided to fight all future wars in cyber space.
Those Second Lifers are harboring weapons of mass destruction. We will go after them with a coalition of the WoWers and MySpacers.
In 50 years . . .
Surely something will come along that will out do this and we will all move on to it like good like sheeple. Some, yet to be born, computer geek like us will cream his shorts at the chance to emulate one of these drives in order to retrieve the data from it. But this assuming that the coming NWO will allow unfettered computer access. I guess though even the NWO will need data storage.
Google is my sherpard i shall not want
In the beginning there was was Google and the search was good. I'm considering converting from Pastafarian. I like new shiny golden calfs!
The penguin because I hope this new religion is open source.
Good or bad?
I'm not sure if this is good or bad. If Nintendo makes a profit from the hardware it would certainly push hardware sells, but since they can't keep up with current demand any growth in demand would be a bad thing wouldn't it?
If human overpopulation is the cause of the catastrophic global warming crisis myth, then maybe we should stop trying to cure diseases and prevent accidental deaths. Reintroducing the bubonic plague couldn't hurt either!
Hey global warming isn't all bad. I'm sitting on some lovely future ocean front property in Iowa. Hurray for rising sea levels! Fucking Floridians have had good for too long.
Surely therre is room in Davey Jones' locker
for the likes of the RIAA and MPAA. These groups have done nothing to improve the entertainment industry only made it harder for us to enjoy it and given someone a second gold-plated Hummer. At what point will they just give in and realize the majority of people are tired of paying for someone else to live a life of luxury. The spirit of The Pirate Bay can never be destroyed and will survive long after it is gone.
If they use this technology for house flies. . .
then I'm gonna need a new flyswatter.
Me:This isn't a fly swatter. It just looks like one.
RoboFly: Dead or alive your food is mine!
The same models used to predict tomorrows weather are the same ones used to predict what the climate is going to do in a hundred years. What is the accuracy rate of your local weatherman? It would take Deep Thought to take into account all the factors that could effect the climate over a hundred years. I have studied climate change and I have read the UN report. I still don't find substantial evidence to support anthropogenic global warming.
