Re: What happened to Peg?

"Paris, well, she probably has a lot of rings too...."

Yeah, but we would have to cut her in half to find out how many.

Icahn, but Iwont: Carl the investor pest ends war with eBay

Cubical Drone

"Carl Icahn is perhaps the most activist investor the world has ever seen."

I believe in the comment section of a previous article about Mr. Icahn it was agreed that when referring to Mr. Icahn, the term "activist investor" was to be replaced by the word "douche".

"Douche" is not only a more accurate description, but will also save various data storage and bandwidth resources due to its brevity.

Who wants a ROBO-BUTLER? Google and pals do – and they've just put $2m towards it

Cubical Drone

I welcome our mechanical subservient overlords.

It should be interesting to see what happens as more and more jobs that have usually thought to be safe from mechanical automation are lost (this, self driving vehicles, etc). I think sooner or later, there will need to be some serious rethink on the common economic models that are currently worshiped.

I am reminded of the old joke of a car factory manager and union rep walking through the car plant. The factory manager is proudly showing union rep all the robotics being used to build cars and says to him, "I bet you are wondering how you are going to get them to join the union" to which the union rep replies, "actually, I was wondering how you are going to get them to buy cars."

Target IGNORED hacker alarms as crooks took 40m credit cards – claim

Re: Perhaps this was a head in the sand moment

If your security software is chucking out millions of false alerts, it is probably time to ditch it and find one that works. If you just ignore all the alerts, you might as well not have security software at all.

eBay stockholders! There's MORE to COME, thunders Carl Icahn

Cubical Drone

Here, here. Just think of all the key strokes, printer's ink and bandwidth that could be save by just saying douche instead of activist investor whenever his name is mentioned in an article.

US govt watchdog slams NSA snooping as illegal, useless against terrorism

Cubical Drone

The big issue in a nut shell

"the public will engage in recriminations against the intelligence community for failure to prevent it."

And this is expressly the problem.

I don't often feel sorry for politicians, but they're caught between a rock and a hard place on this one.

As long as their are no recent attacks, the chant will be "we want privacy, we want privacy" and if there is a major attack the the chants will be "why didn't you do something to stop this" and "we want security, we want security".

Frankly it is getting to the point that instead of adding stuff, they should just remove the tuner and basically make them monitors that you just plug various stuff into.

Re: Wow! Very Fail! Such undesirable!

I have said it before and will say it again, the difference between something on the internet and a tattoo is that no matter how expensive and painful, at least a tattoo can be removed.

While I agree that there are certain symbols that have been basically co opted for use ever again (e.g. the swastika), I think you maybe reading a little too much into this one. I bet I could find an example of hateful propaganda that used kittens.

I freaking love it!!

Why try to hide the job you have been tasked to do, just come right out and be load and proud about it.

Most of the time what hurts the NSA and the such is the old Never Say Anything attitude. The stuff is going to come out sooner or later and it is the cover up that actually kills you. If the NSA would have pretty much let on that they were monitoring everything on God's green earth because CONGRESS SAID THEY COULD, the whole PRISM coming to light thing (which IMHO was the biggest NO DUH! moment in history) would have been a news story for all of 15 seconds if at all.

Apple iPhone factory workers imprisoned in virtual slavery – report

YAWN!

Let's face it, we don't really care do we. These stories always periodically surface, we all get a chance to post our comments of righteous indignation, various companies roll out their prepared mea culpas and then we all run out to by the next version of the shiny shiny they make.

Wake me when something changes.

Bigger idiot theory

Stock price has nothing to do with real value any more, it is just based on how much you think you can sell the stock to a bigger idiot for later on.

Not sure how it is working out in the UK, but in the US we have been trying the "let business run around and do whatever they want" for quite a while now and it does not seem to be the panacea that was promised.

Worldwide tax crackdown planned against tech globocorps

Cubical Drone

Not holding my breath

The announcement sounds nice and will probably quiet down us unwashed masses, but I am a bit skeptical that any legislation will come out of this, which probably explains why the private sector is receptive to it.

PRISM scandal: Brit spooks operated within the law, say politicos

Cubical Drone

Re: Definition of Irony

"So if it's to their advantage, they seem to be fine with warping the laws to their benefit."

You're just arriving to that conclusion now? Also, on the tax thing, you will notice lots of screaming but very little to no action, since they also don't have an issue with warping the laws to protect their Mega-corp overlords.

Human error blamed for toxic Russian rocket explosion

I get what you are all saying about design, but...

...there has to come a point when you also need to hire competent people.

In a prefect world you could design something that is fool proof, but you should always remember, "if it is something any idiot can do, only an idiot will do it."

You think they would have learned from Groupon that when a big company backs a Brinks truck up to your door, you take the money and run. These offers tend to happen at your products peek.
