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."

Gay marriage foes outraged at Mozilla CEO flap, call for boycott

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.

White House blasts Samsung for tweeting Obama-Ortiz selfie

ShadowedOne

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: 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.

Apple patents technology to STALK YOU in your own HOME

ShadowedOne
FAIL

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.'

EU move to standardise phone chargers is bad news for Apple

ShadowedOne

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.

Jury reckons Motorola wasn't 'fair and reasonable' to Microsoft

Stop

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.

Engineer's $30m windfall from Nintendo 3DS patent spat SLASHED by beak

ShadowedOne
WTF?

Wait, what?

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?

WikiLeaks: Manning guilty verdict sets 'dangerous precedent'

ShadowedOne

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.

Unmasked: Euro ISPs raided in downloads strangle probe

ShadowedOne

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.

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.

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.

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?
