You will be assimilated.
BORG for the win.
"major US telco"
TWC is not so much a "major US telco" as a large ISP and cable TV provider. Any "telco" services they supply are minor and not subject to normal telco regulation.
new Week End Environment
this will only screw over OTA viewers
People who are OTA viewers will not find their stations where they expect them to be; and in fact may lost some of them in crowded markets due to frequency issues. The current digital is no blessing, as the weaker signal means users (like myself) lose the ability to view what used to come through plainly. I say if you're going to force them to digital, bump up the power again so that the signal gets further than 10 feet.
Just don't hit a skunk
You don't be happy...the skunk won't be happy...and anyone coming down the road for the next week won't be happy.
Re: The search engion is Bing
Cleanup on my monitor please.
"deter light-fingered staff"
You have a key for this thing?
Good on her!
Pleased to see a woman (finally) get selected for this prize. Hopefully it will encourage more women and young ladies to get seriously into math and make it theirs.
Give Scotland to the US
But you'll have to take California and Texas.
Re: Nothing is too extreme for this OZ government
OH, you said scary. I read it as scaly.
the best hasn't even been mentioned
Your shiney new fridge has just slurped up all your internet bandwidth for the month...sorry, you are getting slowed down to a lower tier and charged extra since your toaster wants to play on the interwebs, too.
I can't think of a single appliance or device in my house that i want connected to any other device and especially NOT to the interwebs where the data is available to a "select few" or to some derp hacker down the street from me.
I barely let my computer talk to the internet; and there are days i wonder about that.
AKA bog roll.
the incendiary device should have been pressure triggered by someone sitting on the boss's chair.

Re: Java Exploit in Callous Cat Does Not Care" website
Strange, that link doesn't work.
standard polygraph tests
I thought these were pretty much proved to be hokum a long time ago. You mean some poor mis-guided soul still uses them? Shame.
not liking the "prettiness"
Didn't like it in FF; and like it less in TBird. Been using TBird for my email client for three different networks now, for quite a while. The new "pretty" one seems to have lost it's mind in how it uses my address book and is suddenly pulling up wrong addresses for folks i regularly write. Please just stop.
Re: One idea...
I have found several tools (at eye-watering prices) on UK web sites and even if willing to purchase (I was); they weren't willing to ship. Even common, every-day hand tools that should be more reasonably priced are not.
Somebody tell me what's up with that? It can't be exchange rates. Is it just gouging in a controlled or smaller market?
Slavery is not gone
it's rampant in Africa, Arabian peninsula, and much of SE Asia. Most of the slave trade in the former colonies was "fed" by one tribe selling off another in Africa. pretty much how they still do it.
Europeans have no guns
Well, I don't know about that. All the US films i see that have been filmed in EU, everyone and their mother has a gun.
they find a shrunken dried hand with one finger raised
Well, he hasn't changed one little bit now, has he?
Of a movie i just watched.
Re: I seriously want one of those canoes
I hope it doesn't taste bad...??
Re: AC Oh no. Not again.
The pigeons couldn't make it past the sharks with their frikkin' lasers.
I tattoo mine on the end of my schwartz
Unfortunately, it's like reading a shrunken head.
Re: Java? On iOS?
This article makes more sense if you replace JAVA everwhere with "insecure POS".
Makes me think fondly of a certain moderatrix......ahhhhhhh
you kids get off my lawn
While i'm listening to my old Yamaha analog receiver, JBL 100's, and my BIC turntable and Tandberg tape deck. Digital? Oh, you must mean my fingers.
"ditto pork Jews"
I knew reform Jews who ate bacon all the time. They loved it. Meantime, i guess the piccies of the kids on a bearskin rug as babies are all pron now (to the perverts, anyway).
Just say NO
I don't want the IOT touching anything in my house (sometimes not even my computer). Now get off my lawn.
what if they're fake?
Yes, so you attached her head to a sheep. Is it still revenge porn? She attached his head to a shrimp. Is it even porn at all?
Pew Pew Pew
There. Took care of Old Yaller and the Yearling.
but nearly as exciting!
almost signed up for pay-scam
I looked into those wankers a long time ago (pre eBay days) and they wanted more of my life history than my local bank gets; including orifice sizes and organ measurements. I'm used to getting my sandpaper without; so i exited their site and never looked back.
Re: On the one hand
IIRC, IBM suggested something like this before iTunes was a gleam in someone's eye. The music industry back then was no smarter than they are now. Turned up their noses as walked (ran) the other way. Book publishers should NOT have entered into the iMonopoly and they wouldn't be in the current sad state. They gave up whatever high ground they had when they slipped into the gutter with Apple holding their heads under.
Has anyone pointed out that there is a subtle but important difference between someone committing suicide in the privacy of their own home and someone being thrown out a window at work?
and many thanks
May you long enjoy your reitrement back to the world of music.
Clearly Aereo failed to bend over
Or failed to bend over their customers like the normal cable and broadcasters do. Now they'll be out of this business, but i hope they find a new way to waggle the fingers at the industry insiders.
GMAIL - it kicks your junk to the kerb
Thanks, but no thanks. The government takes care of that for me.
The SCROTUMS got this ALL wrong
Apparently they didn't understand the separate antenna and etc. for each and every customer and the oligarchy of big entertainment somehow managed to buy more influence.
Re: Don't carry IT around
OMG, you just ended this comment session for everyone. The only thing you forgot was Hitler.
Re: Whereas in Blighty...
Does the Maximum Fun Chamber have Maximum Fun Bags?
i would put my indie stuff on porntube first
Considering there IS a group working for the indies, i would expect them to get their act together and put up indietube.com ® and go to town with it.
all your data are belong to us
Seriously, all of it.
Including the stuff we secretly loaded onto your phone you had no idea about.
wines du terroir ??/
I think you mean wines du terrior.
Oh Hell No
I don't want anything inside, outside, or near my home "connected" except for my personal computer through the firewall; and it's hardwired. It's bad enough the government can (and will) snoop at will via any means possible (serious stop drinking reminder to those who think otherwise); and the griefers out there will find a way to bollox up your home and devices there if there is any access to the controlling device. I'll just keep my manual cookstove, furnace, leccy, fridge...thanks very much.
Please tell me you take your medicine neat and don't use ice or water pollutants....
Re: "quis custodiet ipsos custodes"
Well played. Have an upvote,
I'm just going to wait for my automorphing vehicle
so that i can simply tell it what i want it to look like, color, description, and etcetera, and it does it. then the plate changes to some local politician so i can speed. Did I say that?
