The correct punishment
Life at gitmo.
Re: Criminal hacking?
I don't know. How many phones got hacked by Rupert Murdochs gang? How many years is he doing?
The logic behind this
They are not worried about rapists, rapists don't hurt "da man".
They worry about hackers, hackers can hurt "da man".
The solution, rape the FBI goons and put that video on the web. If the goons don't want their children to see that, they shouldn't have been protecting rapists. "But I was only following orders" went out of style at the Nuremberg trials.
Oh, and don't forget to send them an invoice for a "crash course in empathy".
The will become better people and the world will become a better place.
After all, what has NASA got to hide?
They could start by explaining why the pretented to never have landed on the moon!
Rape the FBI goons and put the video on the web.
It's semi portable
Can you pull a geargrip over them you think?
Re: A strike
"Goes to show that intelligent unions and business and mutual success can all go hand in hand."
Mutual success? Why are they striking you think? More mutual success? My money is on their greedy bosses underpaying them.
Re: When you look at it it's actually pretty stupid...
No, it's YOU who doesn't understand how a very big ego can simply overwhelm the brain. This guy probably had a whole layer of clueless people to shield him from the truth and the harsh reality of the world out there, whose sole purpose was to tell him how smart he was and that everybody who didn't agree with him "simply didn't get it".
So now he's all alone on his own little planet. Kinda sad really.
Re: Thank god hes out !!
"Next time LISTEN TO YOUR USER BASE AND USE CASE SCENARIOS !!"
You don't understand, I'm so precious, I'm so smart. I just have to make the non-obvious choice. That's what makes me special. And it gives me grabbing rights ! ! !
The moron is obviously still in denial.
Re: The most striking thing?
The technical term for that is "redshift". Google it.
There's no such thing as lightning protection
I remember a client, a big steel construction company. Lightning struck, went over the network and burned a hole in every network card. Where does that leave your lightning protection?
Re: Bill is wrong
You got that from "Small business are discriminated against." eh?
The government is always the government. They groom the guys with the money.
The individual and the small businessen don't have the power to change the laws. Because the government is in bed with big money.
Bill is wrong
Small business are discriminated against.
It's like being a white guy in South Africa under the apartheid, taking full advantage of it and explaining: "if blacks want to be treated equally, they should change the law".
Re: Won't be able to post hate comments
"Hate is an emotion, a feeling, a thought, I am allowed to hate the Nazi's,"
You are allowed to hate Nazi's. I don't, I pity them, because they are retarded fools. They are empathically handicapped. You don't hate somebody because he's walking with a crutch and shouldn't hate somebody because he's empathically handicapped.
But you're allowed too.
However, you're not allowed to inspire others to violence. After all, Nazi's, like any racists, are people too.
Re: Why should they have to pay any tax?
Hey AC, I shouldn't pay tax either. Because with the money I earn, I buy stuff. And there are all kind of taxes on the stuff I buy. And I hire a cleaning lady, and she pays taxes on the money she makes. So that's why I don't have to pay taxes on the money I make. Because I'm precious!
Hey, that's a great plan Axe.
A question though: who is going to build the roads? Who is going to build the schools to educate people so they can work for Apple? Who is going to invest in these big wasteful projects?
Re: Why do people get upset at Apple for this?
Hey GBE, who do I bribe to get the Apple treatment?
Re: Don't expend the effort worrying about it, it's a red herring.
"Most normal people don't understand other people either."
I second that emotion.
Re: Balmer is safe because...
Ok, let me have a go then.
Re: If Nokia had any guts...
"Too much R&D, too many ideas, no focus, ridiculous time to market issues, and an utterly fragmented set of platforms."
Caused by big egos and small brains in upper management. It was all company politics and that's what killed them.
Re: Two years too late
"no, it wouldn't, it would be just another android in a sea of similar devices."
No it wouldn't. It would be a Nokia. That name still rings a bell with a lot of people.
it's not brain surgery is it?
Without all them damn foreigners, the US rockets would still be tipping over on the launchpad.
En the moon would be colonised by the USSR by now.
Imagine they set off a nuclear device. Off to Guantanamo with them ! ! !
Re: Zero Tolerance
Rules and procedures are a great idea.
If you don't have a brain.
If you do, they're shit.
Anybody involved in this decison
should be castrated. We can not allow them to breed. Darwin commands this.
The higher they are in the chain of command, the larger and rustier the knife has to be.
"Several users, twitter users, and other sources had heard him identified as the suspect and believed it to be confirmed. We were mistaken."
Several sources all confirming because they heard the same original source, is hardly conformation is it? It's just repeating.
Re: FFS, when will they "get it"?
I agree with you. However.
Unique selling point.
Self declared smart people think this is very important and they are entitled to a lot of money because of this. And they don't have to meet a single customer. Ever.
I didn't know the Australian branch of the Taliban recruited women. How very open minded of them.
'justice' is a procedural concept
Indeedy. But all this nonsense goes out the window when they become a victim eh...
some people want to be vindicated
She should have hired the A-team instead?
What purpose does the justice system think they have in a society? Should we pay them just to have the pleasure of looking at their smug faces? Or should they actually contribute to society by giving people the impression there is some justice after all?
I really want to know.
it seems that they want to encourage people to settle rather than take up the court's time,
Ooohhh, "taking up the court's time". I thought it was the taxpayers money that paid their salaries, their nice buildings. But when you need them you're taking up their time?
Since they don't want the taxpayer to take up their time, I suggest we fire the lot. That way they can go fishing and golfing whenever they want and they won't be taking up the taxpayers money.
Seems like a win-win situation to me.
few lawyers have commercial acumen
I don't know, they seem to be doing ok.
But you put the blame with her legal team. The total legal bill is more than the cost of her legal team. There's the cost of Oracles lawyers and there's cost for forensics and expert witnesses.
Also the self declared very smart and important people that voted the bill. The walk away from this without being named & shamed?
You takes your chances..........
Yes, but she won.
Had she lost, would Oracle have to pick up the bill?
What is "the puzzle"?
I haven't looked long and hard at this, but the question that immediately came to my mind, and very disturbingly nobody elses, is: does the mining serve a useful purpose, like protein folding?
Because then it could work, value is created and so is money. If the computing power is wasted on something useless, than it can never work. Money is issued without any value against it.
If the money seems to have value, it's only speculation and eventually it will have zero value.
So the question is: does the mining serve a useful purpose?
Re: Uh... No.
"that would be a ballista then... as invented by dionysus"
Dionysus was a bureaucrat and a tyrant. When have you ever seen them invent anything?
You're right. The police could have acted on sooner. They should have. They didn't, they failed. Then they continued to fail. Now they go all misty because they're being blackmailed, in the meantime still continuing to fail. If they have to be blackmailed to do their job, they should be fired, then tried and competent people should be hired and put on the case.
Re: Space elevators simply won't work. Never.
Really? I like your argument...
Re: That's what happens when you leave development up to governments
Re: Feasible Space Elevators
Yes, this would work like pulling yourself up by your bootstraps. Why don't you jump in a lake and show us?
Re: Space elevators simply won't work. Never.
Dear mr "Destroy All Monsters", if that is your real name. Could you please calculate for me how much reaction mass would be required to give the counterweight "a bit of a boost"? Then compare that to the reaction mass required using a conventional rocket? Of course you can't, because you're calling other people pointing out the bleeding obvious "nerds" you have no clue of the real world around you.
But I can.
If I had stolen a laptop
And I couldn't sell it because it was too cheap, so people would assume it was stolen. Oh I would be in such a difficult situation, I really don't know what I would do.
Only stupid people think that probably everybody else is stupid to.
Re: Receiving stolen goods is still a crime.
You know what is also illegal? Making false statements accusing people without having any proof to back up the accusations.
For all they know, they bought a second hand device. Because they are innocent until proven guilty, the burden of proof is with you, the accuser. Since you don't have any proof, you're falsely accusing people. And that my friend, is illegal.
You're luck they probably won't press charges.
Re: They bought a stolen laptop.
You're not allowed to have a PC in Iran? Or a PC is ok but not a Macbook? Or you're not allowed to go in the interwebs, but if you have an illegal device they'll hook you up anyway? You're just making this up as you're going along, aren't you?
It might be illegal for a US or even UK citizen to export it to Iran, I don't know. But that doesn't mean it's illegal for them to buy a second hand Macbook. In that regard, your regime is more repressive than theirs.
Re: That's what happens when you leave development up to governments
Yes, but cars still have four wheels an engine and a steering wheel.
But wait, they were saved by the government a couple of years ago, perhaps that's why?
But seriously, get of you "company good / government bad" horse. It's limping. Badly. It needs to be put down.
Space elevators simply won't work. Never.
The difference between a very big Eifel tower and a space elevator is, that the tower is rigid. And we need rigid because the speed of an object on the surface of the earth is much slower than the speed of an object at GEO. So going up the tower, we have a vertical component, and the horizontal component we take from the earths rotation around its axis.
Not so with the space ribbon. This means with every object we send up, the counterweight will start to lag. Energy is taken from the counterweight to speed up payload, so it will lag and it's orbit will decay. And this will get worse with every payload we send up.
