AT&T helping US drug cops in 'vast, troubling' phone snoop scheme

Kai Lockwood
Thumb Down

Oh hell...

Just fired of three signed letters, two were FOIA request to the NSA & DEA requesting all information about what they could possibly be interested by in the phone number. The third to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave to express my "sadness" that my Fourth Amendment rights aren't worth the paper their printed on. I wonder who will ignore me the hardest...

Exactly what is a bone-conduction transducer and do I get to switch it off?

I must say this sound like a Dr. Who episode.

If I get marked down on my community college podcast assignment for being too soft, then as professional bloggers, Gavin and Mary Jo should be able to balance their recordings!

Microsoft, martyrs, and the sizzle of Natal

Kai Lockwood
WTF?

This is dead week.

It's oh so quiet at HQ.

"News has been on Apple and Google for weeks. Quick, pull something out quick so we don't look like we're behind."

"Uh, ok. SharePoint and Office 2010. I've prepared severa-"

"NO! WE WILL NOT DO THIS! I WANT THE NEWEST, CRAZIEST IDEA WE GOT!"

"Well, we rigged up a camera to a PC that lets people use Office like a board game."

"Oh, this is too good..."

What the crap is this? Have I accidentally found my way to Vouge.co.uk?

IT angle? Real life relevance? Or are the poor wags starved for a bit o' flash in the office?

Beside, even the new Itaniums are sexier that LiLo these days. (OH SNAP!)

Obama 'deep space' Mars plans in Boeing booster bitchslap

Kai Lockwood
Pint

Really?

Any commercial company only makes these types of statements when something is affecting their bottom line. If Boeing was too cuddly, lazy and expensive in the past then this is just the reaction that they will have towards more competition.

Anyway, one small piece of the military-industrial complex just got vaporized, lets have a round!

Intel: 'We won't wait for software'

Kai Lockwood
WTF?

You get the kitchen sink....

it's just they've cast it out of platinum.

All these features have an additional cost, so ... what are they? Power consumption, interface complexity and mayhaps countless hours of trying to implement the next best thing.

Itanic was a "brilliant" design that failed to be implemented meaningfully as a platform. This could just be the same feature grab only lashed to x86. /cynic

How effective will the implementation be?

Dell bars Win 7 refunds from Linux lovers

Kai Lockwood

Policy varies with OEM

I just recently bought a lowend Toshiba laptop and the EULA for this machine stated that the return policy was (and I quote):

"By using the software, you accept these terms. If you do not accept them, do not use the software. Instead, contact the manufacturer or installer to determine its return policy. You must comply with that policy, which might limit your rights or require you to return the entire system on which the software is installed."

Toshiba's policy on not accepting the EULA is:

"...TAIS DOES NOT ACCEPT THE RETURN OF COMPONENT PARTS, OR BUNDLED SOFTWARE, WHICH HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THE TAIS HARDWARE PRODUCT. PRO-RATA REFUNDS ON INDIVIDUAL PC COMPONENTS, OR BUNDLED SOFTWARE, INCLUDING THE OPERATING SYSTEM, WILL NOT BE GRANTED. "

The loophole has closed.

US faces critical lack of (mad) computer scientists

Kai Lockwood

excoriated

I wished to grow up as a mad scientist until I got to college and found out that the CS department graduated at most FIVE undergraduates a year. At that point I realized that CS people are 1337ist and I gave up. How many more gave up like me, eh?

What’s the point of desktop virtualization?

Kai Lockwood
Thumb Down

Same problem, different tech

"In the US a number of organisations have begun to experiment with variations on this theme: instead of supplying users with corporate PCs they provide them with an allowance with which they can purchase a machine of their choice."

This sounds like an awful idea. Who get to support all of those PC that the random idiots buy?

Goodbye Yahoo!

Microsoft is going to absorb Yahoo! like an amoeba. And then kill themselves cause Microsoft does not know how to do search.

Tukwila Itanium delay situation still as clear as mud

Kai Lockwood
Dead Vulture

EPICly

Intel is simply trying to kill Itanium by attrition.

"Sure, it will be out any day now. But while your waiting, why not examine our full range of Nehalem Xeons?"

HP is the real driving force behind Itanium and Intel just dances the dance to keep a major OEM happy. Itanium's death was sounded by x86-64 a long time ago.

Funny, this seems like the IBM/Apple PowerPC spat a few years ago doesn't it?

A Twitter PR agency: Just what the world needs now

Don't call it tweeting

I believe the singular of Twitter is 'twit'. Therefore, all these new ad campagins can keep "twitting" each other to their hearts content.

Oh lawd. Here we go. They bitch about openess when they can't get their hands on it and hide behind "protecting their competitive position" when they've wrapped up the market.

Oh, the irony.
