Re: Tachovsky would be best for this task. But he's dead.
Internal monologue can work. Watch Dexter.
@ Gordon 10
Incompetence does not beat conspiracy every time. For all of their issues, Apple is very good at writing code.
I am an Apple fanboy but I can't stand Cook, and I don't trust their explanation.
But Who gets the patent.
I can see this being worth a lot of money. Much more than the prize. So who owns the patent?
Even the States courts do it.
A man was charged with murder in California after his wife died off the coast of Italy.
I can't find the followup article ( maybe one of legal types could) but the State Appeals court said that California laws do not stop at the border!
Get a life
People have been making fun of peoples name probably forever. Look at my first name and you can probably guess what I had to endure.
I guess I never realized that people were making fun of me because I had an English name and I am Scotch-Irish.
You probably figure Verenice Gutierrez is a genius.
That is the game that is being played in the U.S. Senate. Basically people who work for the Main Stream Media are journalist, nobody else is. Right now that bill is dead. It might get hidden in another bill though.
I don't see any reason to be disappointed. There is very much a tech/privacy angle to this.
As far as overloading the media I tend to agree. A few years ago the media was overloaded about a "shock jock" who called a women's college basketball team a " bunch of Nappy Headed Hoes".
You couldn't get any real news for two weeks.
No different than ATT
Nothing new here. It took me two hours to cancel Uverse. The phrase " I never watch it" just didn't seem to get through.
It has been a lot more that thirty years. Do a search for Reefer Madness. The interesting thing is, until the United States started signing treaties to stop the opium trade in China, drug laws were ruled unconstitutional. If memory serves the history channel has a good DVD on that.

Re: Because it is the law. @dent1980
There is nothing illegal about telling anyone that. The basis of Affirmative Action is that you do not hire the first person available but you Affirmatively look for a minority to take the job. That is why, from a legal basis the white guy was not discriminated against because he is not member of a protected class. The employer is required by law to look for a black woman. Once all opportunity to do so has been exhausted they can hire someone else.
As much as I hate NPR I have leaned a lot about the way these laws operate and the rational behind them.
I have also spent thirty years in Industry and I have seen HR jump through all sorts of hoops to make managers hire a minority.
Couldn't agree with you more on Occupy.
Have an up vote.
Re: iODB2 Engine Data Reader - Cheaper option ( help a Yank Out)
This all looks just for the European market and the PayPal check out is turning me off.
Anything similar in the U.S.
Re: Psych(o) researchers @bobcat4424
Huh? Zuck is hard core Democrat. I am sure he is pitching a product to help the Obama Republicans win in the next election.
Cantor's loss has terrified a lot of career politicians and their supporters. I am sure Zuckerberg is working very hard to make sure that doesn't happen again.
Bootnote: Back in the Reagan days there were Democrats known as Reagan Democrats.
Re: Water resistant doesn't cut it @ Sensi
A thumbs down for saying thank you? I don't get it.
Re: Water resistant doesn't cut it @ Sensi
Thanks for the info. Yes that is good enough.
Water resistant doesn't cut it
Are we talking heavy rain, spilled drink? For that much money it is too much of a risk.
Re: Beware of dog
A lot of meter readers use binoculars for troublesome backyards.
Look at how Eric Cantor lost
Brat would not have won without the support of Drudge and Brietbart.
It works both ways. You need money to fight the Media. During the 2012 GOP primaries there were complaints that the Drudge Report only linked to positive stories about Romney and negative stories about his opponents. Drudge linked to that article too.
The CNN's, MSNBC etc are also as bad but from a different political viewpoint. They never would have allowed Bush to get away with the IRS shenanigans the Obama is.
Money is very much a part of free speech. You have no right to take away my ability to use it to support whoever I want.
The PAC's were designed to allow the rich to get around the Campaign Finance laws anyway.
Laws are for the little people.
If memory serves. The first product placement showed up in the silent era. And no it didn't help the movie at all.
Do no evil?
Do I hear lawyers getting ready?
you mean about the size of the iPhone 4?
And about the same price too?
I don't get it.
Actually it goes back much further than that. Alien and sedation act.
The thing I don't understand about Snowden's is why is any body surprised?
Maybe I have leaned some details I didn't know but the over all concept is nothing new.
I notice he didn't loose his job
How does he think the company got in bad shape in the first place?
Bit Coins anyone?
It's a joke. See the Icon.
What about the birds?
Towers like that have been known to fry birds that wander into the path.
Would some one please explain to me why this is worth so much money.
People who read my posts know that I have no use for the new leadership at Apple. What are they buying? I know the Reg had an article about it already but it still doesn't make since.
Re: smaller size of electronics means smaller satellites
You can make Semiconductor devices radiation hardened. Harris corporation used to do it. The problem is some of the steps are so outside normal processing that in essence you need a separate fab to make them. That is why Harris closed it's VHSIC lab many years ago.
License plate cameras are worse
Not everyone can get to their curtains.
Some 70's style house have windows pretty high and inconvenient to get to. My sisters house is like that. Remote control curtains would be great. Let me rephrase that. Affordable remote control curtains would be great.
What aren't all cars left hand drive.
The only people around here who drive right hand drive are the people who deliver the mail!
Translation Make it look like windows
One thing I like about the Mac OS is it's non industrial look. Now Cook is going to make it look like windows.
Yeah I know he is not the one actually doing it but he is the man in charge.
@Arnaut the less
How about the NAACP?
http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Sports/2014/04/30/NAACP-Honoring-Sterling-Disgraces-Itself. If the scandal had happened a week later Stirling would have gotten his award.
Ellison doesn't stand a chance. This is a classic Jesse Jackson shake down to move ownership to a black owner.
He did the same thing with Coca-Cola in the Sixties but all of top links on Google reflect more recent shakedowns.
All of this stuff about the owner has been known for years. Just ask Karreem Abdul-Jabbar.
Re: Use credit cards only
I agree with you on debit cards but I told my bank I would go elsewhere if I had to take a credit card. I guess I am lucky I live in an area with good competition.
It is about the voters not the amount of viewers.
One thing cable can do much better than broadcast is target voters in specific districts. They can also help out one candidate over the other by what they charge to advertise. This is very poorly regulated so they can play kingmaker quite easily.
@Arnaut the less
You are naive if you think individuals can't donate all they want. They just have to play legal games to do it. PAC's, Super Pac's, or controlling a major network.
It was the people outside the main stream media pointed out the Harry Reid was going to profit from the seizure of the Bundy ranch. Once that came out the Feds backed down.
The Supreme court ruling is just leveling the playing field. If you can't put your money behind your mouth you do not have freedom of speech.
Just because he didn't give Icahn all he wanted doesn't mean he didn't cave. If they don't get rid of Cook they are going to go the way of TWA.
I think I am the only one who got it.
What? No ring to rule them all Jokes?
I am surprised I am the first!
The best camera is the one that is in your hand.
Yes my Nikon D50 is much better than my iPhone, but my phone is always with me and my Nikon isn't.
Read "The Macintosh Way" by Guy Kawasaki
Now the apple fans know who Guy Kawasaki is. The main thing you see in the book is how much better the Employees working on the Macintosh were treated compared to the people working on the product that made money. This is one of the reasons that Steve Wosniak left the company. Job's actions were making key people leave.
You don't go to a DDS for a broken arm and you don't go to an MD for a toothache.
You use whatever method works best in the circumstances.
Re: Turnbull Twitfight - we're backing Mal this time
I have to agree with flatearther. I was moving back to San Antonio from Dallas a few years ago. I couldn't find out from any one at ATT in Dallas if I could get broadband in my house. The best part is I was moving back into a house that I had rented out while I was in Dallas and my renter had Uverse.
So we have another ignorant Obama supporter.
From the NSA's FAQ's on their website.
The Director, NSA/Chief, CSS, is GEN Keith B. Alexander, United States Army. The Director is appointed by the Secretary of Defense and approved by the President of the United States. The Director, NSA/Chief, CSS, is always a commissioned military officer with at least a rank of three stars. He also serves as the Commander, U.S. Cyber Command, in a dual assignment.
I didn't waste my time looking up CIA for you. I doubt you want facts any way.
Yes Congress has oversight committees for various agencies, but they don't run any of them.
I don't see it. Civil rights law is separate from commercial law. The KKK won a similar case years later using an attorney who was a member of the NAACP.
The EFF in this case is being used a front to attack a company with legitimate claims. I say legitimate because they have already won a case against Apple.
I hope the EFF loses the appeal.
His brand of bullshit capitalism worked very well for him. And that is all that matters to him.
Talk is cheap
"I don't think there is any CEO who talks about human rights more than I do,"
Talk is cheap. The "Human Rights" phrase is just so touchy feely PC nonsense. The Foxconn issue has been going on for many years. There is an old saying that you can't save the World but you can save part of it. This is true here. He has leverage with Foxconn. He needs to start using it.
Really? Google is going to have a real problem with public relations if all the wearers of Google Glasses are this obnoxious and clueless.
This doesn't make sense
Normally, everything is kept quiet until the fix is out. Because they did the IOS first everyone got clued in that could be a problem in OSX. Now that is confirmed.
I can see hackers burning the Midnight Oil to take advantage of this before it is fixed.
Why didn't they wait and fix both at the same time?
