Local vs Global.
It's okay to swear in the sense of 'freedom of speech,' but it's not okay in the way that people don't want to hear it when anger is intoned. It's kind of obvious.
No one's dismissing Torvalds. I get angry and curse in public occasionally too, but I am always wrong to do it. It does not advance the biggest and most important project in existence: society.
But you know all this. Have a pint.
Babble, Towers of
Google knows it's way around city, state and federal bureaucracy.
Having acquired right-of-way knowledge during Fiber rollouts this sounds like a natural extension of their acknowledgement to shareholders that they're serious about deploying for mobile.
To compete, Facebook could partner with Amazonian package drones to broadcast wifi signal while the drone is moving between deliveries. Or something.
still uses that dog turd
Unfortunately, the South Korean Financial Supervisory Service (FSS).
And what good is emailing folks that you might need to change your passwords? Any talented hacker would immediately cross-reference the user to any other web service login and immediately try to log in. You'd still be sleeping when the whole thing was over.
At what point will government legislatures address this runaway problem?
Re: Oh Well.
I mean, if you're a business, you likely have a Facebook page. If people want to friend you, or follow you, you can push deals to them on your terms.
And they gave away all those tablets too. Stupid people leading stupid people.
I copied the exact same paragraph as you.
"The contractor that originally buried the cables didn't keep records, so the city will now need to pay a civil engineering firm around $500,000 to find them."
How about the city; do they keep records of the plans the contractor should have filed to get a building(sic) permit? That kind of right-of-way stuff tends to happen in modern cities.
It can be construed two ways: Google is Saving or Google is Hijacking the previous install. Either way, $1.7m is pretty good. Here in Austin Google is giving the city 100 free access points (libraries, schools, etc). Can you imagine how much ANY other contractor would charge for that alone?
I am among the many who welcome/celebrate our Google overlords/ladies.
Beer for the cheer!
Stay away until $10
If the US economy wasn't starting to show promise, and the holiday shopping season wasn't right around the corner, FB could fall another $7-$10. It's trading WAY above a comfortable P/E ratio based on speculation about mobile advertising.
Zuckerberg is smart, but he's not that much smarter than the average very young person. He doesn't have the vision that an older CEO has. If I were a major investor, I'd TELL him to step aside and let the smarter people with more experience run the show.
The product is eyeballs, and if users begin to see a better experience elsewhere, then what.
The house-of-cards analogy fits like a glove. And if one thing is true, it's that internet companies come and go.
DJ's lie more than politicians! (If that's possible)
New music is discovered by your friends' older siblings, and that's how you get introduced to it.
In America, the radio actually kills music. Today's kids think there are only 27 bands in the world.
1970 is the magic year in music.
It's good to be the king.
I first got it for it's cross-browser capabilities, but the AJaX was so easy that I could never let it go.
It's very, very easy to use and it's free. Hard to see any migration away.
Beers for cheers.
ICANN not stomach this any longer.
ICANN is supposedly a non-profit organization.
ICANN allowed GoDaddy to become a Registrar.
ICANN not wait for Godzilla to find their headquarters
At the end of the day what can you really do but heft a pint?
Not if we harvest it first!
Or, it could make a great game show where prisoners (or their descendants) try to escape before the clock runs out. Like Australia.
Some are looking for metrics to prove or disprove the flight theory, but really I think that this article grounds itself it the fact that Facebook was once for college kids, and then became a haven for teenagers and fans of things that want to be, or are, Liked. Being popular is a group sport. We get it.
Now that the college age kids are young parents, and the teenagers are now college kids, the under 13's are seeing that Facebook is NOT the most exciting platform ever. Twitter is what adults use, therefore I will use it.
I think it would be hilarious if Facebook crashed in 12 months. I can see all the humans leaving, and only the fan sites for thinkgs liked remaining.
Come on, Farmville? Even the time wasting section of the time wasting platform is a waste of time.
Facebook is People!
1. Google never monetized Search, or Maps, or Talk ... They gave it away and just placed ads.
2. Facebook trolled for kids and others who knew not what they were doing with their personal data.
3. Facebook is a cancer. They did nothing different than AOL, GeoCities, Yahoo! Groups, MySpace, et al. except that they did it when the web was mature.
In the immortal words of Charlton Heston; from Soylent Green: "Facebook is people!"
Only 30 lightyears ...
Thirty lightyears isn't "close" or doable. Just stop. And who wants faunacide anyway?
Thirty years in space would destroy any human anatomy not under conscious control (exercise isn't enough).
Only a Seed Bank can make it. And why should infect another ecosystem?

So it's agreed
The eyes have it.
Can I buy your Magic Truss
Every day I get in the queue (Too much, the Magic Truss)
To get on the Truss that takes me to you (Too much, the Magic Truss)
I'm so nervous, I just sit and smile (Too much, the Magic Truss)
Your house is only another mile (Too much, the Magic Truss)
Thank you, driver, for gettin' me here (Too much, the Magic Truss)
You'll be an inspector, have no fear (Too much, the Magic Truss)
I don't want to cause a fuss (Too much, the Magic Truss)
Can I buy your Magic Truss? (Too much, the Magic Truss)
Rock on Vulture.
"Leaping lizards inspire super stable search bots"
How did the word "search" make it in to the headline? Because it's a 'bot, it must be a web-bot? It's a physical robot, and not a computer application. The Internet is rapacious enough without a bunch of Jurrasic-age velociraptors mining my data.
I'm so glad the pilot didn't defect!
I choose a pint, because there was no keg icon.
But, how do you pronounce "leccy?"
big f & deal
None of this answers the question of why I need to Sign Up in order to click the freaking Like / Dislike button in the first place.
You only broke the Audio CAPTCHA. Reporting this smells of wet blanket.
CAPTCHAS are getting too difficult to solve anyway, move on to riddles.
Everyone sucks actually, just count them all
I'm a white guy in Texas who was practically reared by immigrants. I love them dearly, but the anti-white culture is a sizable demographic here. That being said, most white people in USA are monolingual, and the modern stereotype of the Mexican should be that they were so busy ripping-off corporate America that they failed to leverage the bilingualism they are rapidly loosing.
I chose GO because we need to move beyond governments and venerate functions and tools
My Commodore64 had some sort of extended ASCII for border characters, and moveable sprites. And there were 300 baud modems for transport. In fact, the local radio station broadcast Centipede on the radio so you could tape the program and play it into your box. Broadcasting is publishing too.
Adobe fell victim to Apple early. Poor PostScript2.
I can still remember leaving Apple for PC because Apple couldn't handle multi-vendor extentions. The PC guy got the shaft while a generation of academia paid twice the price for infrastructure and got stuck with Lotus Notes.
So what, big deal . . .
. . . you still live in Norway! Out here where it isn't snowing we are too busy swimming to talk on the phone.
Better get my coat, we're going to Norge.
<<<<<< Facebook is People! >>>>>>
This flunk_toast is getting paid millions to publish people's private information! He's criminally insane!
Paris, because he wants her level of social acceptance (vapid).
Stop changing the interface all the fucking time. I can't do my fucking job without re-educating myself about WHERE to click. I don't care if hardware architecture dictates you constantly selling new versions of the same product - stop fucking up how it works.
Screw 'em both
Both these companies suck. The average person stopped selling on eBay because it's too difficult, and the average person hates Craigslist because they don't offer much in the way of screening or filtering content. It's basically a personal data mining operation.
Any fool with a web server and a domain could takeover Craigslist mindshare and reap their ad dollars. The media is the only hurdle.
eBay, on the other hand. Who would want to mimic that?
I for one welcome the eBay/Craigslist killer.
And Facebook is people!
Setting Legal Precedents
Have to agree with Simon Zerafa.
There may be a calculus involved that forces a dynamic upon the industry or its methodologies, constraining or disrupting things. He may be proving their (ir)relevance to the market for a reason we don't understand yet. Perhaps someone is waiting to invest in something so long as the patent worries are Judged unfounded.
Or he could be a pod-Allen trying to take over our planet.
Paul Allan, go away now . . .
Why doesn't someone just patent a one-click patent process and get it all over with. Seriously, this is Amazon.com all over again.
Fail. Because Paul Allan is a . . .
Tow a flying trailer
What if it could tow a trailer.?
And what if that trailer was an auto-plane trailer?
And what if the auto-plane trailer held eight auto-planes?
Why you'd have yourself a flying parking lot you would.
I for one welcome random pilots landing on my street while I teach my kids to look all three ways before crossing the, oh, nevermind.
Whos says Michigan is Bankrupt!
This guy restores my faith in America ingenuity! There's gotta be a way to leverage this to profit.
