I'd much prefer if he could stop the rabid iFans from outgassing on various public forums.
Re: False feeling of control
"The spies can get into deep shit if they overstep the boundaries and embarrass their superiors, so they have to be careful what they do and will probably show some restraint."
You can't embarrass the shameless.
Re: No win.
The people banging on about Free Speech conveniently choose to ignore that 'Free Speech' does not include any kind of freedom from the repercussions of your speech. It's called personal responsibility. Something, it appears, that isn't very popular with a certain type of people.
I would imagine it depends on which side is willing to be the US Government's bitch.
Re: Did Samsung Actually INVENT Something? That's a change.
Must try harder.
Considering the President's personal intervention not all that long ago, on Apple's behalf. I'm thinking it's more to do with the company in question (ie. Samsung) rather than other reason they make up as an excuse.

Re: What a sick joke
"What a sick joke"
Quite the apt summary of your post.
Re: This article could work the other way
"This article could work the other way"
Except it's not, she died and the death certificate is real. So what is your bloody point (aside from trying to divert criticism with what-if style scenarios)?
"..your head is in the wrong place."
Sounds like the voice of experience...
Re: Cease-and-desist letter?
Well, maybe they did...they're just not allowed to say so...
Re: Get Godwin's law out of the way first
Hitler is on the internet? Wait, of course he is, everyone is on the internet, does he have a facebook account, or twitter? I bet a look at his friend/follower list would be quite interesting...
Re: To be fair, home taping was a spectacular failure
I'm pretty sure the music industry has been trying to off itself the last several years...
Re: Everything with a hole in it is a vagina?
"there's a hole, and there's a vagina. True, there's an ass hole... but this stadium is definitely NOT shaped like an ass hole."
The majority of the commenters however...
Re: Pot, kettle, black?
"It must be really frustrating for Google to find out that their monopoly on our personal information has been broken."
You have the option to not use google, so if you don't like anything they do, then don't bloody use it. The NSA on the other hand isn't giving anyone a choice in matters, I know which one I'd be more apt to bitch about. Hint: It's not google.
Apparently in the Apple dictionary 'Innovation' means 'Patenting technology that already exists and/or is glaringly obvious'. Although I'm not sure if that definition comes before or after, 'Patenting technological ideas in the hope that someone will invent or create an invention using those ideas, or similar ideas, who we can then sue.'
Re: He's got that wrong.
"..encouraging the world to overbreed.."
Judging by your comment I have to say that you are certainly a compelling argument for birth control..
That was the *stupidest* comment I've read so far, and considering that I've read through all the comments so far, that's saying a fair bit.
D-plane boss, D-plane!

"But while the world mourned the second anniversary of Steve Jobs' death on Saturday"
No, it didn't. In fact, the vast majority of the world couldn't possibly care any less.
Re: Fandroids and Fanbois apart
"...The character of a corporation comes from the top and most directly the CEO..."
That would explain Apple then.

Re: Phones are on the verge of desktop replacement
So what you're saying is that you've never seen a usb mouse, usb keyboard, nor any of the heaps of usb video adapters. There may well be a failure there but it's not on the part of the micro-usb connection.
I'm reasonable sure that you can't patent 'stupid' (especially when it's more temper tantrum than patentable idea).
So...MS lost the case in a German court and, wanting a do over, brought the case back to the U.S so their lawyers could manipulate a clueless jury into (essentially) punishing Moto for winning in Germany. Yay?
Re: Voting power
In that case don't vote for anyone. I'd imagine a voter turn-out of 0% (or at least less than the minimum for a valid vote) would make it a tad difficult for any party to be in power. Ideally (yes, I know) at that point all the sociopaths, err, politicians would be willing to listen.
So..every 3DS produced violates the mentioned patent, but since not every game makes use of the patent infringing component the judge reduced the damages awarded. I don't see the logic there, how does the number of games matter when it's the hardware and/or firmware that is in violation?
I tend to wonder..
Just how Watergate would be handled today (if it were recent rather than a past event). At a guess I'd say, the investigative journalists who brought the story to light would be vilified as traitors/un-American/etc and locked up (or worse), and Deep Throat would hunted down and either executed or conveniently die in some plausibly deniable way. The general public, of course, would be getting the standard diet of PR and spin and would be cheering on the persecution, err prosecution.
If you put it into a ruck sack, tank bag, etc. then you are not holding it, are you? I'd say his intended point still stands, would you like to willfully misconstrue things some more?
On the off-chance that this kind of stupidity is genetic, I sincerely hope this moron has not reproduced.
So basically Cogent's 'throttling' accusation boils down to 'they aren't running their business the way I think they should *whine whine*'. Those networks might be slow but it's not due to throttling, it's due to poor infrastructure. Cogent should end up fine for being an ass.
Wasn't that, "I shot the Sheriff"?
'I shot the sheriff..but I did not shoot the deputy', is the line I think.
(I hate that song)
Not a surprise in the least.
Re: Are apple inventing the spot watch?
So..would that make a google/android version the gSpot?
Re: You need some Win8 consulting then?
If that is the case then I suggest that it's Microsoft that needs the consultant.
Re: The Lefties won't like it
"I'm I suppose an anti-authoritarian (can't be a lefty with that view)..."
While I agree with your main point, I just wanted to point out that you can be a 'lefty' and be anti-authoritarian. While the political spectrum in the U.S. tends to be portrayed as a single axis (left-right), in actuality there are two axes (left-right, authoritarian-libertarian, respectively). Personally I suspect that this is because virtually every U.S. politician is a 'do what I tell you to do' authoritarian jack-off.

The VIP handler..
Wait, why fire the handler? Was he/she in on it, or just spite for not being able to read the VIP's mind?
Re: no nukes is good nukes?
I'm not so sure. Having light-water reactors is precisely a reason to have these reactors as well. They'll use the waste as fuel and produce electricity to boot, solving both power generation and waste disposal issues.
Obvious troll is obvious..
Are you trolling or are you really just *that* stupid?
Sounds a bit low considering the way some people boast about Apple's cash reserves. I'd recommend 0.5% of their current cash reserve value per day.
Yes there does need to be a sign, it's up to the owner of any given premises to determine what is allowable, not some over-aggressive jackass looking for people to smash in the face. Seriously, people need to grow the hell up with all the threats of violence.
On a side note, I wonder how long it'll take for police forces to adopt these glasses?
Re: Ban cameras from your own property by all means.
Not to mention that if any ass kicking ensues, they have just posted their legal liability for all to see.
Re: OhMaGERDZ, they're trying to take our porn!!
"Listen up, silly boys."
"The point, if you were thinking with your brains rather than with something else.."
That doesn't quite work, ostensibly if you are in prison you're there because you deserve to have your freedom curtailed. Whereas DRM is, in effect, a prison for the innocent.
What if it can't make phone calls (like most Apple 'phones')?
You've got the wrong room, the Apple talking point and mutual masturbation conference is down the hall.

Where does the carrot go?
I won't answer that directly, but I will say that it's required that you bend forward...
