Re: Wow

"Make it possible to provision a carrier instantly? Have one less component to go wrong, get dust/water inside, etc.?"

Yep, changing SIMs takes hours...Tell, when it was the last time that you had to clean up your SIM? And if your phone gets water inside, I guess the SIM and the tray it's the last thing you should be worried about. In fact, I'm pretty sure that they will be the few parts of the phone that would not be affected by water...

Re: What ass clowns!

You are the kind of ass clown that I would never, ever, trust to tell what a person can or cannot do.

Let's take a look at what you didn't read in the article:

"One examined a €2.75m project for processing massive online datasets."

I wonder how many ex-Stasi where integrated in the german secret services...they are used to do the dirty stuff, you know.

"The other revealed plans for a 75-man unit to monitor Twitter and Facebook chats, as well as other communications."

This one I consider waste of tax-payers money, but great for someone to have their little kingdom...

Politicians love to hide their crap under "secret of state". If you have nothing to hide...right, mister clown?

There is a breed/caste of politicians, no matter the ideology, that want to remain in power and /or control over their own people.The stigma of "radicals" and other epithets that they make about Syriza, Podemos, Venezuela, Bolivia, etc, its just smokescreen for their fear of uprisings...

Re: "...there are persistent rumors that at least one former NSA staffer is also leaking files."

"The question is, "is anyone surprised at this"? "

Some people, they are not. But one thing is suspecting, the sheep can always be told "oooh, the thin foil paranoia again!" , other is the psychological effect of reading and seeing official secret files leaked.

Re: historically progressive and generous company

"They arguably saved the entire music industry with the iPod/iTunes in the early 2000s, at least from the rampant online piracy that was ruining musicians and labels"

No, the music industry were desperate because they did all the attempts to stop a new type of sales and distribution to preserve the old model and the effect was people sharing more and more. 99c per song was a very hard thing to swallow but the labels had no choice, their tactics only screwed them.

Press releases and panelists

"said Moedas, sounding an awful lot like former Commish president José Manuel Barroso, when he announced Glover’s job back in 2011. Plus ça change."

They have the same idiot PR, the kind of people appointed based ont their useless value.

About the scientists...oh I love the Swiss system of democracy...

Moedas is an idiot of an accountant, people who should be forbidden to do anything outside their area of "expertise" if they have any...The other day, reading about the cuts in the money for the EU science and opening the doors for Ukrainians(nothing against the people from there), I had this crazy epiphany that he did it following orders of some kind to sell heavy weapons to Ukraine.

Like "scientists" there developing advanced control systems for missiles et all, but in need of funding to buy some toys from the EADSs and BAEs of Europe to test it...

What you want to state with that article of yours? 2005? And did you even read it? Do you know when the first cases where reported?

Re: The UK can leave

No, its not rampant in the EU. Do you want to know how we got the mad cows here? Cows imported from the UK. Now you have cases of mad cows not because they are feed with MBM (nice uh? feeding herbivores with bones and meat? fucking greedy), but its been passed from adult animals to fetus, many are calling it the bovine version of scrapie. Its nice to think that the UK its the only one reporting infected animals, and you want to believe that, but its not true. I understand the downvotes, when someones criticizes our country no one like it. But some are more rational and can live with it.

The UK can leave

the EU, I will be glad in many ways. It will be more easier imposing barriers to nice practices like the ones that give us the "mad cows". And imposing controls at the City, which were always opposed by the UK. And leaving the EU, it may fuel the independent desires in Scotland. If that happens, bye bye to most of the oil in the North Sea.

While I agreed that money going to the Mafia's pockets it's not a good thing, going to the City's Mafia pocket's its not good either.

The EU itself will change, the germans and the more at North countries are doing a big mistake by antagonizing the other countries, and when resentment grows, everyone loses.
