Cameras for hacks: Idiot-proof suggestions invited

Try DroidMaxx, fits in your jacket pocket 24hr under normal use battery, decent phone so you can call that professional photographer if you need one.

OUCH... right in the Androids! Google hit by another antitrust sueball

Mark Nelson

well they are lawyers after all. And dumb ones at that. Everyone has a choice on what search engine they use. ALTA VISTA is a good one I hear, so are others that are not in the Good ole USA. Too bad that Google is the most popular currently. Also too bad that the plaintiffs do not know anything about how Internet and Internet Search work.

Head-cam video used to OK Arkansas cop kill

Mark Nelson

Re: Justified Shooting???

If we on this side of the pond find that there was not a good reason for shooting the cop will wind up in jail for murder. And think about this if a police officer either British or American winds up in jail they will have people to deal with that they might have put there.

Rule #2 for model rocket enthusists:

Always put on anything you launch your address as #10 Downing Street or Buckingham Palace. If launching in the USA put your address as 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC.

The EFF are just doing their job. Now if ASCAP and RIAA and MPAA and all the other outfits would directly pay the creators a decent wage we might not have this problem.

Alabama admits developing country status

Mark Nelson
Alert

The main problem from what I see is $$$$$$$$$$ from the state.

Most High School teachers make about $20,000 a year and that is with 4 years seniority. The parents typically have to buy their kid the following: Pencils, Pens, Books, Toilet Paper, Art Supplies. You know all the stuff that the school board supplied back when we were kids. And that is in the cities that are wealthy in the state. In the poor counties they have even less.

Without ALABAMA we would never have gone to the MOON People.

Because Marshall Space Flight Center is in Huntsville Alabama. Along with NASA. During the APOLLO Project years the test firings of the Saturn V engines would shake the windows where I lived about 15 miles away from the test stands.

Re: Ebay should comply with the LAW

Most people on the Internet are nervous about supplying things like Name, Address, Phone Number and email address because these things can be used for Identity Theft and to send you SPAM so they think why should I do something so dumb. If the British Police and New Scotland Yard are willing to compensate them for every time their Identity is stolen because they complied with the law those organizations will go in to receivership pretty darn quick in my opinion. :lol: :lol: :lol:

If the blind can not use a brick and mortar store is one thing but a website? Now if the plaintiff had stuck to ADA claims there might be a possibility to work things out but now either target will pull the site which is bad for all users or they will outlast you id10ts on appeal.

Another good reason to buy the book is convience

I have a howto in pdf form entitled Dont_Panic_v1.5.2 on my desktop that I got from nwvault.ign.com it is 132 pages long. If it was in book form I would probably buy it for the convience of always having it available to me.
