I wish these [REDACTED] would just stop [REDACTED] with information. Someone should take a [REDACTED] to their [REDACTED] and [REDACTED] really hard until [REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED] with a teaspoon.

Tim Cook on pale, male Apple: 'As CEO, I'm NOT satisfied'

Corporate p.c. bollocks

Would it not be more sensible to simply employ people based on capabilities, skills & talents appropriate to position, regardless of race, colour or creed? Rather fatuous announcement, Mr Cook, not well thought out.

Something not quite right with their overly defensive P.R. response, despite proof of execution. A more trust inducing way would have been holding their tongues, verifying the exploit, correcting it post-haste and, oh I dunno, THANKING THE GUY for pointing out a critical flaw.

UK mobile sales in the toilet: Down by FIVE MILLION this year

Mitoo Bobsworth

Seems straight forward to me...

The market is saturated & overheated with tech-hype - that in combination with the current supply side economic mentality (as opposed to a demand driven one) and a lack of spending ability for a lot of people.

That, or maybe folk are just tired of feeding the monster.

Amazon snubs FTC: We'll see you in court over kids' in-app cash blowouts

Mitoo Bobsworth

Easy access?

Why do kids in the USA appear to have such easy access to Mum & Dads credit cards in the first place? That Amazon doesn't really care who's spending whose money is one issue, but if kids are racking up their parents' credit debt, with or without their consent, then I would think Mum & Dad need to confront that directly.

New NSA boss plays down impact of Snowden leaks

Mitoo Bobsworth

Re: Something else to think about.

"I think most Americans don't care about respect from the rest of the world"

And therein lies a big part of the problem, I would posit. As airy-fairy as it sounds, authentic respect is a valuable human quality that has been tossed aside in favour of unchecked authority and manipulative control. That the governing classes of the USA only seem to pay lip service to that word or display a shameless disdain for a deeper understanding of it does matter. Disregard human emotion & sensibility enough, and it always gets ugly.

Snowden defends mega spy blab: 'Public affairs have to be known by the public'

Mitoo Bobsworth
Bronze badge
Stop

Less talk about the messenger ...

... and more focus on the message.

Snowden has effectively sacrificed any chance of a secure or 'normal' future by his action of conscience, and any rants or attacks on the man only reveal the emotional and/or intellectual deficiency of those attacking him - any moron can hurl insults & insinuations.

Lack of concern as to the veracity of what has so far been disclosed is of far more concern to me. Secrecy does have it's place in governance - However, secrecy unchecked enables corruption, coercion, unaccountability, abuse, deception - the list goes on.

To quote an old friend - "Nothing is wrong - everything matters."

POTUS promises Trans Pacific Partnership text

Mitoo Bobsworth

Re: "...that the public can take a look at,.. "

My main bug is not so much the complexity of such international wranglings, rather the lack of information about what is being wrangled over & by whom. Secrecy enables corruption. So also does an uninformed and, by extension, inattentive public. If these negotiations are going to increase, in any way, the privatisation of wealth from the commons, I think that's an issue of public concern.
