Not a software
Lantern is not a software, because there's no such thing in English. The voiceover is American... maybe they should have had someone Chinese write the script, because I expect they teach English to a higher standard in China.
p. s. Reg: They said “bring light to corruption and injustice”.

Re: Frankly tired of USB
How much time has been wasted around the world, since USB came along, with consumers trying to insert a plug one way and failing, turning the plug over and trying it that way, then turning the plug over again and finally succeeding in inserting it the way they tried in the first place? FFS.

Re: The problem is
electrical failures created fiery explosions, melted metal and caused circuits to fail
Sounds like the bridge of the USS Enterprise when it's under attack.
I wonder if wannabe Starfleet Commander Keith Alexander of the Information Dominance Center has any involvement?

Re: The problem isn't that the sun doesn't shine
The DESERTEC Foundation has been thinking about and developing these ideas since 2009. Generate electricity where the sun does shine, and transport it to places like northern Europe using High Voltage DC.
Re: Not ungrateful
OK, so license the Linux kernel under a more liberal licence.
What are you trying to do? Do you want Linus to explode?
Free at the weekend
In many cases (e.g., 0845, 03), calls at the weekend are free using BT's cheapest tariff, Unlimited Weekend Calls, so I phone then when I can, which is usually.
Probably a silly question, but is it common these days for call centre staff to be paid extra on Saturdays and Sundays?

Oh, and shoes too, of course, as Get Smart afficionados know.
The National Trading Standards Board has also asked British retailers to stop selling the tiny telephones. It also points out that such small devices are "electrically unsafe meaning they could cause fires and injure consumers through electrocution."
The National Trading Standards Board is "a group of senior and experienced local government heads of trading standards representing all trading standards services across England and Wales. The Board was established by the Government to improve the enforcement of laws intended to tackle rogue traders operating both regionally and nationally who are causing harm to consumers and legitimate businesses."
It also points out. So what was their main argument to British retailers? I mean, within the terms of their remit, of course. What was their main argument concerning consumer and business protection?

Far too technological and subtle. The authorities want a solution where they can throw their weight around, just... because.
Talk about Streisand effect! I'd never heard of these things, and now I want one.
I wonder how much of the Quaker influence/ethos of Rowntree's history carried forward into Rowntree-Mackintosh and thence to Nestle. Or was it all lost along the way.
Good point. I would hazard a guess and say: none, and yes.
Re: "Depends on what the meaning of "is" is...."
The issue was one of semantics in how you interpreted the meaning of the word "collect," he suggested.
Was Clapper lying? That depends on how you interpret the meaning of the word "lie". Wikipedia lists 28 classifications of the noun, starting with "bad failth", "barefaced lie", "big lie", "bluffing" and "bullshit", and including, yes, "economy with the truth".
Re: The UK seat-belt PSA
Also deserving of an honourable mention is the original Think Bike ad from 1975, presented by the late Edward Judd. I drive a car, I don't ride a bike, and I've never forgotten this ad from nearly 40 years ago. 47 seconds of low-tech brilliance.
Short, snappy and hard-hitting is one way to make a film of this kind. Extended, deeper and more personal is another way, and I think Herzog's done a brilliant job here. Respect to AT&T, Verizon, Sprint & T-Mobile for funding it (see the credits).

I'm not sure I understand. They're paying her so they can access the board to troll her?
Nice work. I'm in two minds, though, as it's more lockin for the inferior DAB (inferior to DAB+).
No word yet from ISPs about how much all this is going to cost, and how much will be added to all our monthly bills?

One of the good guys
Jimmy Carter is still working strongly for the public good, and he's 88! He gets a huge amount of respect from this Brit.

Compare and contrast this use of the Internet with that other story about the whining ad man.

Great, so this site allows people to upload potentially sensitive information and they've deliberately closed the SSL site. Un-fucking-believable.

I think Brillo's an arse, with that constant backchat of his all the way through the interview.
Also, use HTTPS everywhere, everywhere you can. Many services support it, even if you haven't noticed.
The easiest way is to use the Firefox or Chrome extension from the EFF.
