Will google be censored

I mean, what I wanted to know about the latest scandal involving MPs; MP has under-age sex with teenage boy. Or something to do with abuse of anyone? Rape Victim harassed by nutty DJ.

If you've got kids and you want to keep them safe on line, take responsibility. You don't buy them a chain saw and let them go into the garden, so step up and take responsibility for your own offspring. Don't expect every one else to "help" you. A step for a hint, don't let them use the net unsupervised.

If we go further down this path then then we'd all just best set our proxys to that one in China and be done with it.

Don't read this...

I've said it before, and I'll say it again....yawn....what a fecking waste of human resources....imagine what good these companies could do if they were working for humanity and not just for their bottom line....all pulling in the same direction as opposed to fighting each other...a doubling, at least, of productive capabilities...in the mean time....watch the court battles...this is, after all, a natural system that must have been given to us by god....

Children...

If we, as a species, feel that we "know it all", and that our "currently established laws" somehow describe the totality and that then allows us to make sweeping statements about what is and what is not possible then we are, as my title suggests, children.

Keep asking the questions...

Our fire has become our electricity...what will our electricity become?

Nokia ‘giving away phones at cost’

@SteveBalmer

The point was made before....in capitalism a company does not get "taken over" or enter into deals that are not "beneficial to it", unless they have to. "They have" is defined as "keeping their profitability", in this case. It's easy to blame M$ if we dismiss the larger picture. For a better understanding of that, head to http://www.realityinfo.org . Peace.

Microsoft files monopoly complaint against Google

codemonkey
WTF?

I Like This :)

"Secondly he accused Google of blocking Windows Mobile phones from **working properly** with YouTube." ( My *s )

So you can access OWA via IE and get a full interface but on FF or anything else you only get a cut down version. In fact, as you log in you get told:

"If you are using a browser other than Internet Explorer 6 or later, you can only use the Light client."

Restrictive? I mean, we pay for the service...Oh yeah, there's the problem :)

IT Angle

I Love it,..

There are two strands to this story

1) Business as usual. Your tax payers money straight into the hands of private companies.

2) Less murder machines on our planet. Result.

No more killing please people, this is not the dark ages. Fuck, it’s not even the 90s. Time to grow up.

Peace.

@petur

That made me smile..I wrote a very similar line in a comment of an assember(80x86) file viewer that I wrote, many, many years ago. It was able to show 4GB files in the good old DOS days..I wrote..

When we have files larger than 4GB, I'll think about re-writing this....

Time to head to the drawing board...I'll give you a kick when we meet your wake up point...don't get too comfy...

I suppose this is why we're in geek-ness...it's just so dynamic and fun :)

Waste aside...

"If all goes according to plan, it will dock "directly and autonomously" with the ISS's Zvezda module on Thursday, 24 February."

WOW! Really!? We can do this but still we have war, famine, poverty, unemployment, homelessness back down on the planet...tech, I'm sure, will help save us, for sure...I think it's way over time we used it for the benefit of all humans...oh yeah, that means you! I'm connected...

Sony threatens to ban PS3 jailbreakers from network

codemonkey
FAIL

Que?

"More recently, Sony has expanded its legal offensive to other PS3 hackers by requesting subpoenas that, among other things, would force Google to identify people who viewed videos posted to GeoHot's private YouTube channel."

Really? So "knowing stuff" now is a crime. Well, we saw that with that dude that downloaded that terrorist training manual...I wonder what would have happened to all those readers of the (g)olly R0dgers C00k book back in the day? Rip your brains out now in case you have ever seen or learned anything that you've never put into practice which may or may not be deemed or not deemed "illegal" and against the profits of company x,y,z or the gov....run!

Feck.

The Elephant In The Room

I know you all accept this is a "as it is", and "how it has to be"...but the elephant in this particular room is that *any* of the day to day working of *any* of our civil SERVANTS is in any way classified at all.

Truth and openness, it would seem, are the enemies of the state.

What are they hiding?

We elected them.

They WORK for us.

They are only our REPRESENTATIVES, but yet they keep all their discussions etc behind closed doors.

You are a fool if you think this is healthy or “pro-you”; it’s not.

Let me get this straight...

So the gov pay, using collected taxes I presume, lawyers / others to protect folks that they have, potentially artificially, labelled as criminals. In essence, they have created a rule that means they can pump more public taxes back to private companies...yeah...another win for the boys club :)

@Sarah

"contemplate how lucky I still am and will continue to be and how most of the rest of the world would probably walk over broken glass to be in my position."

Just because the rest of the world may be daft enough to want to be in your position, doesn't mean that your position is anything like "human sensible". Every one into a gas chamber would rather be at the back of the queue, I dare say. No matter where you are, you're still in the queue.

It's called "thinking beyond".

Peace.

I dearly hope you're very young Mr/Mrs/Ms Ottoman...such perfect naivety. If you happen to be older than say, like, 20, then I applaud you for your belief. Of course, you could learn that the system is not really here for your views...that way you really would be engaging with reality. Heaven ( as if ) forbid. Google "Reality Info" for an education :) Serious. Try it:) All the best in your journey. Peace.

Tim. Nice but...

“We should tax negative externalities” - Tim

Apply morals to an immoral system. Good start.

“and what we're trying to do is maximise the welfare of everyone, current and future.” - Tim

Is it really? I thought it was to maximise and maintain the profit motive and human exploitation under this anti-human system. For the facts that make it “anti-human” check out http://www.realityinfo.org.

Any form of “well crafted” hinted at in the following quote will only be judged in a bottom line somewhere: in profit. Which, as stated before, is anti-human.

“mockery of well crafted economics” - Tim

The best hope I can take from your article, with regards your understanding of humanity and the future direction, would be

“There's even the vague possibility that the adults will take over at some point and we'll end up with something that actually works: “ - Tim

Pitty you messed it up with the bit after the colon

“a simple carbon tax or a simple cap and trade scheme.” - Tim

Did you ever stop to think, even just for a second, that the current paradigm is just not working?

Enlightened human to human interaction awaits you Tim: come and join us thinking folks :)

YAWN

More evidence of why it's time, as a collective, to turn out back on the "profit motive". How much more evidence do you people need? Profit = Anti Human. The logic is plain to see. Get it sorted in your head. Then make it so #1.

Tick tick tick boom....Don't be holding it when it goes off...
