Re: The never ending Story
If I am not getting the names wrong, it is actually the same main lawyer that worked for SCO, David Boies.
He was also hired by Theranos which makes me wonder if he is ever hired by someone who is in the right.

When it comes to work safety there is no such thing as personal responsibility, it is always a lack of training or supervision.
As far as the law goes if he had been trained to push the button while not being in the way there would have been no accident.
But even if he had been trained, as far as the law goes there should have been a supervisor checking that people didn't push the button without following proper procedures.
And no, I am not kidding.
And they pleaded guilty in case a trial would have been even worse for them.
No, but if you have a samba server it will cheerfully encrypt those files from a windows computer.
So, backups, but you knew that already.
There is also more than one FBI agent.
"FB's business is the collection and sale of personal data"
He can hardly admit that, they are not in the business of selling personal data, what they do sell is ad placement.
The data they keep to themselves.
I am afraid they are being realistic.
Seriously, H. Clinton vs. D. Trump, is that the best the US can do?
Indeed, why do people waste their time in Facebook when they could be doing something interesting in real life like posting in The Register.
It boggles the mind, it really does.
So, the "Petrol lobby" created the scandal to make ICE engines look bad and press governments push for stricter controls and emission limits.
Sure, makes sense to me.
Not exactly, Mitsibushi falsified the fuel economy data, not emissions.
They already have a big chunk of Facebook.
But blame them too.
The Silver program would have required OEMs to release upgrades for their silver phones.
Naturally, they refused.
"If there was an open police case, then why were these guys still going about their business?"
If you had read all the way to the third paragraph you would have seen something like:
"Flanders and Callum are serving life sentences"
Well deserved if you ask me.
And Pauli postulated the existence of neutrinos so the equations would fit even though he thought we would never be able to detect them
And yet, we now have neutrino detectors.
So, now they are postulating the existence of something called 'dark matter' and 'dark energy' to make things fit, and, certainly, they may end up going the way of Phlogiston or Aether, but then, we may also end up detecting them.
As Einstein said: If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?
As for scientists not explaining clearly, well, I am nothing but a lowly engineer, and yet I am used to getting blank stare from mundanes when I try to explain something technical, so?
"Stop believing everything you read."
That's easy, after all nobody does
"Stop being a consumer"
Sounds nice, but I Iike eating from time to time.
"Stop arguing for no reason"
Again, nobody does, but then I can see why you would like your word to be taken as gospell.
"Stop pigeon holing yourself."
Whatever that means
"Eat more asparagus."
How can I possibly do that without being a consumer?
Sorry, I was wrong, you are not funny, you are hilarious.
But, for some reason, people insist on taking you seriously, talk about being gullible.
Dude, you are funny
Children have always been to known to play more with the box than with the toy it contains.
The North Sea has moved to the Pacific?
I don't know if you are being serious, but anyway, it was Jerry Yang who invested in Alibaba back in 2005.
Yeah, well, except they did emphasised it by putting it in a bootnote
And yet another one advocating censorship, with a 'will no one think of the children' rant.
Those self righteous pricks are all the same.
Because the whole point of the internet is to allow people to be a dick in an anonymous way.
To ask people to be nice is, therefore, clearly against progress.
Nope, that was both of them.
Not that Mao need a catchy title to kill millions of people.
Yes, indeed, what's described in the article and killing a few million people, pretty much the same thing.
Indeed, in the comics Batman always wins
"Why are they charging MORE for an eBook than a Dead Tree version."
That's easy, they don't.
Well, ok you may be able to find an example where they do, although I haven't seen it in years of buying ebooks on Amazon.
"when farm workers lost their jobs to mechanization got jobs as doctors, correct?"
No, of course not, they moved to a city got other jobs and, you know what? Some of their children did get jobs as doctors.
Microsoft bought a stake in Facebook back in 2007, I don't think they have ever complained about Facebook policies.
If Google, or Apple, want to know anything about Porsches, or any order cars, they don't need to be sneaky about it.
It's easier to buy a couple of them and fill them with sensors.
You must be bursting with pride, you daughter is a real BOFH in training.
" As I said before, you don't realise just how constrained working on Windows has become until you experience a Mac"
I hear that a lot, but I have a Macbook air and using MacOs X reminds me of using a straight jacket.
Then again, after being a KDE fan for years I get the same feeling from KDE 5.
Downvoted for whining about downvotes.
How pathetic is that?
Way I heard it was Castro trying to convince Khrushchev, what would be the point in convincing Castro who had no nukes?
Why would the stukas bomb a city that was already controlled by their allies?
Anyway, many cities for bombed by both sides, Guernica just happened to have a Picasso painting about it.
On the other hand, poor little car dealerships, who doesn't enjoy dealing with them?
Nope, they had a policy called "decimatio", "decimation" is a English word that means something else.
The cars would use the cameras when a user is getting out to prevent them from leaving something behind, umbrellas, handbags, the usual stuff.
If they 'see' something suspicious like puke, they can flag a human operator, and send another car to the next user.
"People die during sex "
They do? Are you sure it is not just an excuse they are using so you will leave them alone?
No wonder you have to drive to get some satisfaction.
Don't worry, if it is only you getting killed because of your hobby, I don't want it banned, I actually encourage you to practice it as often as possible.
I'll think of it as evolution in action.
"Intake of nicotine, fat, alcohol, salt and sugar is far worse when it comes to mortality ... Do you want those banned in your lifetime, too?"
If my eating sugar, fat or salt sure would kill other people, then sure, does it?
But wait, smoking does kill other people, could that be the reason that smoking is illegal in many places?
This, 'but I enjoy driving, it's the one time in my life in which I feel I am in control, who cares how many people get killed?' whining, won't stop the ban, get used to the idea.
"and I suspect we always will be."
I hope that will be banned in my lifetime, driving is a hobby that kills hundreds of thousands of people every year, it has to be banned as soon as feasible.
No, it is not true, Wesley Snipes went to prison for acting on that believe.
Not that many years ago, if a Microsoft product didn't have a over 90% market share it was considered a bit of a flop.
Maybe the same is happening to Apple now.
I drive a car, so I treat all drivers, cars, motorcycles and bicycles, plus pedestrians as complete idiots.
Not that I see myself as an exception.
Was there ever any doubt?
