Facebook turns billion-dollar profit into tax refund

Neil T
Stop

But...

...surely the US government was going to be giving those same rebates to Motorola anyway? And if Morotorla weren't due those rebates, Google would have paid $6,000,000,000 less for them? How exactly does the US Government lose out here? And where's the gain for Google?

Rampaging gnu crashes Microsoft Store, hands out literature

Neil T
Thumb Down

Re: *bangs head against desk*

Yeah, gotta say, to me this protest is a dick move. You want to promote your software? Run your own event. Don't gatecrash a competitor's. And make no mistake, the FSF is a competitor of Microsoft's. If Pepsi crashed a Coke event, they'd get their asses sued. Just because your product is free (and therefore it's not worth suing you) does not give you license to behave like a child.

Precognition?

I for one welcome you and all our other new precog overlords. What mighty power you must wield to be able to know the result of the lawsuit in advance.

Thomas the Tank Engine drives 'conservative political ideology'

Neil T
Big Brother

Politically Neutral Children's Television?

Well, they can't all be as fair and balanced as Captain Planet and the Planeteers, I suppose.

But if we're looking for bias, how about TFA itself? Apparently the U of Alberta feels there are two types of political values: "conservative" and... "positive".

MS store staff in spontaneous electric boogie

Troll

Mmmm!

That's some tasty tasty astroturf right there.

Credit where it's due to Microsoft for being so brazen about it. You've got to admire that level of shamelessness.
