Just an aside here, but the Chinese-to English naming conventions/translations always tickle me. There used to be a shop not far from where I lived called the "Super Excellence Best Bakery". Love it.

All things considered,

The Schmidt hits the Man: NSA spying on Google servers? 'OUTRAGEOUS!'

Mitoo Bobsworth
Stop

False outrage?

"The steps that the organization was willing to do without good judgment to pursue its mission and potentially violate people's privacy, it's not OK."

In other words - "Hands off, that's our job!"

iPad Air not very hot: Apple fanbois SHUN London fondleslab launch

Mitoo Bobsworth
Joke

iNnovation?

The last iMac was thinner - then came the iPad mini - now the iPad air. Don't despair folks, Apple is still at the cutting edge of innovation - they've found a way of selling less kit for your buck. The ultimate in marketing hubris would be the 'iZilch™ - it IS thin air' </sarc>

P.S. - I do own & use a small selection of Apple kit on a daily basis, FYI.

Guardian teams up with New York Times for future Snowden GCHQ coverage

Mitoo Bobsworth

Danger already present

"...the only things disclosed are what the public should know but that does not place any person in danger"

Noble & wise - also a little naive.

Factually, people have already been placed in danger - the ones who perpetuate this secret world skullduggery, and I'm guessing they won't exhibit the same moral fibre in their efforts to perpetuate it, danger being part & practice of their stock-in-trade. I'm hoping Snowden has taken multiple precautions with the distribution & stewardship of the remaining info.

Bradley Manning is no more. 'Call me Chelsea,' she says

Mitoo Bobsworth
Unhappy

Not sure how to read this

Honestly - in the turgid wake of US sensationalism current affairs, I'm not sure this hasn't been injected as part of a well orchestrated smear campaign by the powers-that-be, or that these statements haven't been at least partially coerced. As genuine as his/her inclinations may be, the transition from 'national security threat' to "military criminal' to 'transgender attention-seeking nut job' reads like a badly directed Hollywood b movie for me as, once again, the thread of original concern is obfuscated in the public media.

Corporatism & Greed.

This has nothing to do do with equality in work or any of the regularly touted 'climb the ladder of success' blurb - this type of behavoiur has no gender boundary, it is simply learned & passed on to the next individual with an over inflated sense of entitlement. It's pathological, it's inequitable, and occasionally shows it's aberrance in public with snafu's like this for all to see. Jump on them at every observance, folks.
