Re: Gutenberg and Wales: Comparable? Maybe... but

As everyone (in The Netherlands) knows printing was invented by: Laurens Janszoon Coster!

So, yeah, if it hadn't been Gutenberg, someone else would have.

Snowden's HELPING public clouds says VMware hybrid head

hj

"Initial reactions, he says, were strongly negative as customers felt “this is the death knell of public cloud.” Today, Fathers says, “there is now universal acceptance that public clouds will outstrip data centers in terms of performance, security and economics.”

What a load of Boll*cks!

US bloke raises $250k to build robo-masturbation device

hj

Re: "I deeply apologize to those who were offended by the sight of artificial human penises."

I think that remark was not meant to them but for the sad people who watch a sales pitch for a masturbator and then complain it contains fake(!) nudity.

Re: Is it just me...

Does it really matter?! Do you really think the guy would have had any credibility without the info he got hold of?

Re: You couldn't make this up!

Guess, if you want to show the world what's going within the NSA, people want proof. Since he was only a third party contractor employee, he needs this info from his "co-workers". Can't really see why that is "fucking over your colleagues". Lets not forget those colleagues are/were the ones doing the actual spying on everybody. And I really can't have any warm feelings for those f*ckers.

Bundestag holds 'unusual' hearing on German Copyright Act

What if

Google in its turn will say: "OK, we will not list any content of you in the search results"? I think in the end the publisher will suffer even more. And google could start asking money for indexing their website and showing it in the results. And as a side note, are these the same publishers who make their online money through Google AdWords?

BlackBerry blog hacked with riot-related threats

WTF?

re: Gotta love that logic

And the best part is that the police, especially at this moment, has nothing better to do than go sifting through a couple of million of texts, so they can arrest those _really_ innocent members.

Well at least learns me a lesson, even if some group does something "Good" (defacing a scary nationalistic website) they still can be thick and stupid as hell!

Apple sued over Mac OS X 'quick boot'

hj

isn't it ironic?

Well ... that is the ironic part; they weren't. Actually when the modern patent system was coming into place somewhere at the end of the 19th century it was because there were a lot of people inventing a lot of stuff. But nobody wanted to disclose his secrets because of fear for the competition. That is why patents came: you could show your invention and keep getting money for it!

I don't know when or where it went all wrong, all i know now is: please kill this system!

IAEA: Handling of Fukushima has been exemplary

hj
FAIL

May i suggest

That, now it is clear that any report from a `lobbyist group` is used as proof for one´s own theory/opinion, that you change your tag line from `Biting the hand that feeds IT ` to `Getting nourished by the dick it sucks`?

From the IAEA site; `The IAEA's mission is guided by the interests and needs of Member States`

(Although probably only for conspiry theorists nice detail; the current boss of the IAEA is... Japanese!)

yeahr, but no

As far as i can remember this was not a power plant, just a "factory". Which gave me the following question - please try to be objective if willing to answer my question - What would have been the implicatiuons for the Gulf if Fukushima would have been sunk into that same site? And i am thinking both long and short term, anybody?

spin it up?

Will not say that they falsefied any reports or something like that, but it is funny to see that an organisation who first critized EPCO for being very untransparant, now says that the information and openness of all parties is so great... Typical case of `We from the nuclear lobby recommend the nuclear lobby`.

Probably because the legacy business had 5 million customers / users and the new product only 50,000?

definition Milestone:

A point at which you can measure progress on the way to achieving an objective. Sometimes used interchangeably to show on a plan the production or completion of a Deliverable, or the meeting of an objective.

Milestones are usually phrased using the name of the relevant Deliverable, activity, or objective followed by a passive verb, for example: “submission agreed”, “website launched”, or “Project Team in place” to identify that the milestone has been achieved.)

It's US vs Europe as world e-car plug standard race nears end

hj

just a matter of time..

"According to reports from GM, which sponsors the J1772 task force, that standard has received thumb-ips from Chrysler, Ford, Toyota, Honda, Nissan and Tesla"

Since Ford and Chrysler will be gone in a year and Tesla is not there yet, the japanese will not mind to use the European standard. Or just build two different cars. Somehow i think Opel/Vauxhall will use the european standard too.

Worm breeds botnet from home routers, modems

Good thing you can check if you're infected

By trying to log in to your router.... Personally i think it would be smarter to keep those ports open / daemons running. Can not for the life of me remember when i opened a console on my router to check which processes were running. But if i can't get in anymore, i will just reset my machine.

Microsoft trades goodwill for TomTom Linux satisfaction

question

Since TomTom is a Dutch company, does this mean that the case will go to the Dutch court? Have good faith in our justice system, just less in the technical understanding of the judges...
