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: 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.
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: OhMaGERDZ, they're trying to take our porn!!

"The point, if you were thinking with your brains rather than with something else.."
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.

Re: Where does the carrot go?
Where does the carrot go?
I won't answer that directly, but I will say that it's required that you bend forward...
Getting paid (not payed) to fuck lots of women while surrounded by cameras and various technicians, being told what to do, and having to do multiple takes of the various scenes, I don't really see much in the way of the so-called motivation in that.
Just a guess but I would say that the average plot is likely to be 'boy meats girl'.
Re: £500,000 goes a long way
Exactly, it's not a case of 'do extra time and keep your ill-gotten money', it's a case of 'do extra time and get out still owing money' and rightfully so.
Re: Better graphics card than the GTX TITAN?
It's extremely unlikely that any console will ever sport a $999 discrete video card and you either need to work on your trolling, or need to put an ad on a singles site for your lonely brain cell.
Re: May I be the first...
Except that by their logic copying = stealing.
Re: Like Prozac?
Personally I think it's more like Ipecac.

Here is the important bit: both you and Macmillan are full of shit.
Re: My immediate thoughts re. The Minister
That is pretty much the definition of the Harper Conservatives, well, except you left out control freak.
Re: Innocent until proven guilty?
I always thought it was: Innocent unless proven guilty ?
