Re: @MyBackDoor I'm in,

"If you're going to TJ just to get high up the page, you could at least try to do it subtly."

Why so serious here? Anyways, the method of which Microsoft lost their un-dueling position wasn't through law suits, but through usage of competitive services and software. That is the best "low cost" solution to getting anything out of Google's pocket, that is to use something else. It's up to you to make it work.

Re: 2008?

"The term is a state of mind..." The term isn't a state of mind, unless that state of mind is really confused or doesn't understand English well. Startup describes the origin of starting, not sure how "startup" became a synonym for "new". For example, "A startup company based out of XYZ,..." and "A new company based out of XYZ,..." are now considered exactly the same, but won take English much bad.

Bye bye, booth babes. IT security catwalk RSA nixes sexy outfits

Re: Not worth going then...to an A-Sexual event.

"Of course, I would suggest that if none of the actual products or exhibits are of interest that one just not go."

However, when you do have an interest in the exhibits, and the exhibits turn out to be crap, then the booth babes are still something to be remembered. Well, I guess not anymore, so everything might turn out to be crap.

The I.T. industry is turning cold, bland, and colorless like a convention for insurance agents. I'm not trying to be a complete asshole, but it seems like the people with money in I.T. aren't nerds, they're dorks (yeh, I used name calling rudely). The whole thing is turning into genericide.

I'm a straight male, but what I love about South Beach and other areas is that sexuality is so distorted and/or exotic that there is no way you're going to see someone force the tranny's out because it can be construed as disrespectful. And politico types can't hide behind "Well, the industry is Tranny's there, so..." because they are people who are enjoying themselves, and people are people, no matter the industry.

A fucking dress code for a computer convention...pfft. Great, should the employees bring their tailor along? Or should I next? Wait, the whole industry seems tailored already, nevermind.

New paint.

This took about 5 seconds to implement for Microsoft. In most editors, you can set breakpoints on any language. Node is Javascript with new API's, nothing else. Node isn't a hard scripting language to learn because Javascript isn't (just use the right parts).

BTW, I thought Node didn't run completely stable or functional on Windows yet, or has that changed?

Re: I'm skeptical that this bill will pass, but...

Oh boy, sounds like you still believe in it all. To be VERY honest, that is good because I'm so skeptical and negative about politics that somebody has to balance it out However, I question 1 statement of yours, because don't forget...

"It definitely raised my appreciation for Cruz."

"The EFF is not supporting the bill"

Of course not, Google isn't. I really don't follow the triumphs or failures of the EFF, but I do know that people have been stating that the EFF is just a fake front between 2 parties with no real footing on either side. They've been stating that before the Google touch, so I don't see them proving any nay sayers wrong any time soon with Google as their horse master. Again, I don't follow them really, but over the last few years I've been reading what the EFF supports (but not in detail) and what Google supports (but not in detail), and they are apparently the same thing (at least on the surface).

YOUR DATA could be SOLD in RadioShack's bankruptcy auction

Re: Give them the data

If they want to fight this in the name of privacy, to get maybe some fuel for better privacy laws, then I'm all for it. However, this shit has been going on since before the invention of the computer, so getting a company to try and sell you more shit via e-mail or snail mail is just another day.

"In short, you're still screwed..." Trust me, if PhoneShack RadioShack is involved at all, I already know I'm screwed. About ten years ago one of their "agents" tried to sell me a phone. I said no. Then he tried selling one to my underage son. The little bitch flinched before I wised up and knew I was on camera (I saw RED). However, what I didn't know until later was that what he just attempted was technically solicitation of a minor, and I could of sued the branch. If I wasn't so infuriated I probably would of realized that sooner. So, if something like that happens to you, keep your wits about you, don't wind up like me by going cave man and miss the obvious blow that will land harder than your fist (I'm actually getting pissed right now remembering it :-/ )

"I can understand the general premise of not spending public money to directly compete with the private sector."

But it's _ALL_ tax payer money, the wording makes it sound like the money magically appears and is to be forced to banks accounts of MegaCorp ISPs. It doesn't take much to imagine that Comcast or Time Warner wrote this complaint up and Tennessee just put their stamp on it. Remember when that senator was caught doing just that when someone exposed the latest edits in a .doc created by Microsoft Word? Exactly that.

Tennessee was a major slaving state run by companies in the 2000's 1800's, not much will change there.

Spookception: US spied on Israel spying on US-Iran nuke talks

Re: Let them go.

You added you're own touch to it, I like that. Speaking of Iran, for the last few decades we've been trying to get Iran "in", but it has been a struggle. Of course, what happens if we do, rainbows or just more spy vs. spy? I think an anti-trust membership card comes with the Western worlds "in" club today, and that club is already too big, maybe it's time we kick some out. To state the obvious, revocations have happened before and will happen again.

Let them go.

The sooner the West cuts the ties with Israel the better. They seemingly like to conduct themselves as a proxy between the Western world and the middle East, but they really just start shit with everyone. If they stood on their own, truly on their own, they'd just come crawling back crying how they need the West to help regain their holy city...again. Don't mistake my words for hatred of Jews, it's the Israele government that is my problem. Their government is no better than mine (USA), they just present themselves as holier than thou, or really holier than all.

Still?

If the U.S. and U.K. are doing it, then Canada is doing it too (or taking their own path at least). Anyone who thinks Canada is just sitting there "waiting it out", well, you might be right but they still have to wait defensively. But Canada should be fine, because to most non-Canadians, Canada seems like a hooker with 2 pimps, so that's a lot of protection (U.K./U.S...Somebody had to say it!!!).

Anyways, if this article really seems like news to anyone, then clearly we need more Snow.

Ex-Google & Facebook bods are on a Quest for the Enterprise

Re: Color me silly.

Well what about the ever becoming estranged trend for data to extract data from data? At which point does any of this data mean anything other than you can extract data in yet another way? The farther these tools go the farther away I see real world applications.

The screw driver was a great invention. Later on in it's life the Phillips P2 came along and furthered it's usefulness, however at some point people just started to make up shapes that seemed more appropriate. Those purposes traveled furthered down the road of niche applications and carried certain proprietary lock-in measures. But regardless of the lock-in, the whole evolution of this tool lead to a pile of shit drivers that are a bane to work with, and ultimately get replaced by a earlier and more manageable form (P2 or Torx in this case). Data to extract data from data...well, who's paying attention to all this data and for what reason is this complexity needed?

I really don't know, but I do know that concept of "Going Green" is no where to be found in all this. This whole thing seems like burning gas, coal, and wood all at the same time just to find out which smells better. Although, I do prefer the smell of wood :-)

Google adds evil-code scanning to Play Store

MyBackDoor
Silver badge

I take it as an implication that Apple too has had problems on their site with their products, or a typo. I can say this though, as long as you advertise "free" the way Google does, the longer you invite free everything, the longer you get free good AND bad things (I know it's not really free, but a scammer really might see the "free" in it).

Considering how much I use the PlayStore for things I don't already know I want, I've never been too worried about this. I guess I should worry about it for other people, but I never signed up to be the Crossing Guard for all highways of the world, in this case that's Google's job. Whatever....moving on.

Also, I haven't seen a stupid Yank comment in a while, but maybe because I'm a Yank and too stupid to understand it? Hey, if you take enough chemicals in a life time, things do go unnoticed :-)

Re: I wonder

"...a bunch of rickety laws..." Great, so you're implying why bother putting pants on?

"...I don't see Apple going entirely evil..." But if you have seen it at all, isn't that enough?

The holders want the image of a high dollar value, so the quicker Apple bungles about and makes really bad decisions (iWatch or iAnything lately), the worse off the holders. I think the 1 movie that Apple TV shows is what companies don't want to see: "Screw you for profit". Can't miss it, it's always on. If you don't have Apple TV, tune into ChromeCast anytime.

MARIO MOBES: Nintendo hooks up with DeNA, births NX gaming system

You can try and save the interface for touch, but there is no way you are going to be able to play something like Mario Brothers on a touch screen with enjoyment. You think only 6 buttons, easy...but then you realize just how hard it is to replace a directional pad.

Besides, am I allowed to watch the game while I play it, or is Nintendo suing for that now? Nintendo's main audience has been children for ever. Once they started sending DCMA take downs to little kids recording their games to share, well fuck Nintendo. "Nintendo, we hate kids and free marketing. (Just let us die!)."

Re: Ethernet

What is the point then, why not buy a Pi and stick with what is proven? How many cheap video decoders do we have now, do we need another?

Mini-ITX still seems to be the smallest affordable PC architecture that is worth a damn. Pi holds the throne on these little nothing video decoders, and rightfully so being it can be used in many other projects. With this it seems someone thought "Ooh, I can make a Pi too." and headed on over to kickstarter to fund a project that adds another shadow to the Pi.

Here in America, the Pi sells really well and isn't going anywhere any time soon until a board comes along that takes a little more than just video into consideration (in the same manner the Pi did with electronics, but in a different direction).

I guess wake me up when we finally get gigabit, sata and possibly ECC ram options for under 80usd...I need tiny NAS box.
