The way APPLE ACTS.
They way Apple acts would be as if everyone got their way.
Many times I feel like the person banning certain apps is a bit eccentric and leans towards a certain religion thus that influences how people see software that shows up in the list.
If we could have a person who was religious neutral not against or for religion and would truly accept or deny apps on a secular basis and not on a basis of "MOTHER/FATHER" knows best.
I get that feeling that this is how apps are banned/denied at apple. I bet you 100% there is not a list but in someones head on how they think what merits a pull/yank.
May as well hire a super orthodox jewish man as leading the cause and delete all the games as well and any pretty girl girl screen saver.
Todays CIO's just introduce redtape and slow down response time to fixing computer issues by making tech sit down and fill out forms all day on the work they did using a software package called "change management"
Since we changed to change management software away from SAP People Soft not one of our tech's(20 of them have met their SLA's which is to close a ticket within 1 week.
Gee thanks CIO who thinks they know better! Dear People Soft we techies sure do miss you!

Re: Good or bad comments.
I also agree to what you say about in the above but when lets say someone bashes SUBGECT A and I try to flip the coin and feed it back to them and then get banned on facebook then I blame facebook immaturity at banning when I am just letting people taste their own medicine of their own making.
The above same did happen to me and the immature facebook staff with their certain political stance favored the other side when in fact all I wanted to do was to treat all humans as humans but the other side did not see it like that at all because their EQ is not very matured as of yet.
I do agree somewhat to that and yes its their own server but when you do post to have your viewpoints seen and to be read then it is best to have all comments treated fairly.
Sure yeah if I was an arse then yes delete my comments but if I flip the message against the subject topic against a message poster then they get their jimmies in a bunch and cry to the MODS to have my posts deleted. My point is to be treated fairly and knowing how the political stance is of facebook I already know how I will be treated. Is facebook at this moment fair? No. But all comments should be regarded as fine unless found to be in super bad taste.
Re: Good or bad comments.
Not what I meant.
Sure if the comments age sure let them die off the page perhaps but if by bumping on purpose just to kick off bad comments then yes that is just manipulation in the extreme and I am sure it will be just like that.
People who bump who they want to bump. Seems if I want to keep my comments in viewing then I must keep posting to get the relavant responses wanted or needed. Just need to fix any sort of way like Amazon does that prevents people from promoting their own story by hiding as a regular commenter.
Just saying they did not fully think this out and it will still be abused and will be used to hide comments that are not desired at all. WHich means they got a weak spine.
If you are a very social person
I am sure the host of a party will always remain at the top of all suggestions when searching on local parties and they will get first pickings to have their own comments to stay at the top.
It will be the person who does not have the connections who will be exiled out as a non human entity and that they do not matter to anyone except to their own mommy.
This will form a new eliteism on facebook. Oh I'm so sorry you can not comment here because you are NOTHING!
Calling for tech support.
I'd rather listen to a chinese accent than indian. But then indian accent with a british twang is intoxicating!
Good or bad comments.
I do like how good and bad comments can sway the public.
I mean sure yes that within 5 replies down the comment section each party will start calling the other party a nazi but it does not matter and that is where facebook fails to understand to uphold American principles of free speech. By hiding it by any method is not free speech and if they do not like free speech then perhaps they should leave America and get their services hosted elsewhere.
Lets say John and Jane Doe had a baby and the couple were made famous because they both had aids and they both transmitted he aids virus to the baby and now they get bad replies because they created a life failed to be doomed.
Who would be more valid? The people who just give hugs and kisses or the people who give replies such as "WE TOLD YOU SO!"
On an open forum neither should be up or down voted but remain neutral but if this page belonged to the family then they can up vote or down vote or even removed the abusive comments as they see fit.
In regarding to the generalities then this would mean that only famous people have their voice heard while the average joe may as well go play KICK THE CAN outside and turn his/her pc off.
The commenting system does though need to be improved but people do not like to see the real side of life so they like to filter the comments like their filter their coffee as they try to live in a fake world to keep out the truth and other political views that may harm their holodeck based mental fantasies that their right is the only right and nothing else matters.
Such is the case where posting political viewpoints and where the facebook keyboard army admins will delete anything ANTI-Israel and will delete anything that is remotely sane and humane such as treating people from all faiths with dignity and respect... Such as was in my case where one woman was so happy to see a bomb on the head of prophet muhammad and making points about towels on the heads of these people and making jokes about them.
So to point out her low IQ to her I flipped it and I replied: Let me make some art with a jar of urine and let me put the picture of your child and husband and picture of your god in that jar and let me call it art so that you can not banish me because it is now free speech.
No! Do not get angry lady! You wanted free speech against these towel heads so now you get the same medicine you gave to the muslims!
Oh!!! boy oh boy her hate must have sent her blood pressure through the roof and I made my point that she refused to treat each human being as an equal to find peace and humanity with all people of the earth and well you can guess she did not want that kind of equality and she complained and got my facebook account banned because I treated her just as harsh as she treated people NOT LIKE HER. But I am sure the neocons would have loved her.
No I am not a liberal or conservative. I am a centrist. Before you ask for yourself certain freedoms please make sure you allow it for others as well.
Ahh he was right!
Peak oil is here and trying to use science to find every scrape of oil on earth will be done in vain but I am sure they will find other uses for the super cumputer such as creating new bit coins. One bit coin at this moment is equal to $67!
That is what you get for hiring low cost IT people who work for slave wages.
This is why you hire good people for a pretty penny!
TO see the man and woman going at it like bunny rabbits you will need to updates your video codec cache.
Sadly in my area
One person with mental issues was at this library and he was addicted to Gillian anderson and while looking at rated G pictures he would start drooling non stop for her and the librarians refused to kick him out after printing 100 pictures of the actress.
It is people like these who have no impulse control. Chemical castration should be in order for them.
Gnome first try.
WHen I first tried Gnome many years ago it was also my first time using Linux and I liked the interface but now I refuse to use Gnome as it is slow/ugly.
Good arguments but the fact remains....
In the states if you carry ITAR related documents and that stuff is cought on a public service like google then you can kiss your employment gone.
As a service would be best for regular ISP types and not the small tech company but would be good for an advertising company or a company that does not have secrets and such.
I know I know I know
Its the old style fire drill! Ok everyone hear the obnoxious noise? Yes it means that you must stop playing angry bird and leave to go outside while the angry bird farm servers are burning.
I think as much
I think this certain swipe was supposed to be for police who needed contact data of people they suspect of wrong doing.
USE TEC cooling! its cheap and all collge students use them in their tiny fridges to keep their food cool.

Re: Has no-one considered...
M15 must be using the rosetta stone software package.
I am no where fluent in chinese or korean but rosetta said I was 80% fluent in both.
Bunch of crap! Heck man let me steer the M15 chinese/korean division and I'll do a better job!

Just a stupid idea but if these bot net zombies were on computers that were low priority dead weight.
Along the above thinking I know it still illegal to blah blah but if a way to do something with them to make money then somehow the owner of the infected pc's gets compensated?
It almost seems akin to black mail... Shhh! Let us pay you to keep them infected! Either the owner is either naive & oblivious to the infection or they just do not care.
So in the case they do not care why not use the infected pc's for something good?
If I were so inclined to know how to program to make a executable to clean pc of any infection and use them for SETI research or cure for cancer. Then turn in any profits made to the police/govt along with full text history what was done to pc and give them the ability to use a kill command to nuke the computers once after investigations/research have been completed.
Salvation or your money back!
The net was the salvation for Church of the Subgenius!
I still laugh when I see them in D.C.
Young men and women in flight uniforms toting around their bag in tiny wheels but they are not flying at all but just using the metro to go from work to their cult HQ.
It looks very very funny indeed!
I find the windows RT tablet a pretty good device if you do not require all the power that afull fledged OS has.
Seriously slapping around this VS that is just a bunch of crying babies wanting pole position to stay in the lead.
The only way you can do that is presenting the best GUI. So far only Apple and Microsoft have done so.
The last I heard
The last I heard of any updates to our normal technology was the idea of 3D circuit board design that even our CPU's of the future would look like a borg cube in design. Good luck in fitting a heatsink with that!
I do agree our technology is on hold but I do not think entirely by big ego's but also by those who keep reducing the R&B budgets.
Todays idea of R&D is dealt with stock holders and mergers and aquisitions. This needs to stop and real R&D needs to be done. I sure do hope the labs do get sent back to the home in the basement where no wives are allowed to enter just like in the old SCI-FI movies.
Innovation is indeed dead.
It goes on and on and on.
So far Microsoft kept killing its MSN messenger at least once every 2 or three years.
People called it innovation. I call it intrusive interruptions. I still prefer the very first Messenger that comes along with the WIndows XP retail CD. It was small. Fast and loaded quickly.
Now they spent billions and I am pretty sure they will keep the trend the same as in the past.
I bought the Asus WIndows RT Tablet instead.
For years I was the one always power hungry for the full deal but today I do not always need that power and I found what I needed in the quad core Asus Windows RT.
If all you do is email, watch netflix and message boards and angry birds then Windows RT is just perfect for you!
I met Captain Kirk when I was 16
I was at one of his horse shows in Dallas Texas at the time.
I went to the back and started to groom his horses and calm them down and I saw Kirk approach me and I got my pen and paper and went to greet him as He and I were alone.
Instead he ran back to his limmo and jumped in and he looked at me from the rear window with his other hand hushing the driver to get going as he looked at me in fear with his hands still motioning the driver to go faster.
Kirk is such a little man and he refuses to admit what a idiot mistake he made.
The above happened I think in 1984-85? Today I am almost 46 and last year I remeinded him of that incident and Kirk called me a punk!
What an honor to be called a punk by captain kirk!
He has no honor.
I visited an apple stores redently this week and did not like what I saw.
A. No register at all.
B. No focus at all to where to purchase hardware for my ipad.
All employees walking around like bees telling me a tech will be with me shortly even though they all had hand held devices and went walking about. The store was super crowded and looked like nobody was getting service at all and all employees taken so that a wait time would be at least 10-20 minutes before I could leave.
So in utter frustration I left the apple store and went to the Best Buy express store that only had 2 customers and I was served under 2 minutes and left the store under 5 minutes.
Thank you Best Buy for keeping your registers.
I have a very rich chinese friend from Beijing who still thinks like a person from Mainland China but has been a US citizen for over 30 years and she posted a similar reply to an instance such as this.
BAck when clinton was in charge many said Clinton ran the country very well durring the zippoer issue.
Her main comment about the issue was. Since he ran the country so well durring the zipper issue shouldn't we then give him more girls for an even better economy?
So I chuckle when I read this article and thought of the above when I read this.
The point that needs to be asked. Was anyone harmed? Was profit being made?
If no harm and profit was being made then so what!!!!
But I myself would love to fire him for doing no work at all.
Every 2-5 years Microsoft has always been messing up their instant messenger.
I would love to get the original one from Windows XP and just keep using that one.
As much as I love Windows.
As much as I am a Microsoft Windows diehard fan, I do think there is a bit of too much testosterone at Microsoft and I think putting a woman in charge to make sure that Windows 9 has a ladies touch to it.
Seriously! What would Windows look like if a woman was in charge?
I do not think it could get any worse.
LSI named after a song? no way
Your LSI is on my hearts desire.....
WHY OH WHY?
I find LG TV are a fine product indeed. Well the sound kinda suck but other than that its ok.
Other than the above I want to know why they removed PIP(picture in a picture)
I grew up on that and now LG does not support it?!?! WTH!
Cray cray cray
I still want one of those old CRAY super computers to sit in my living room.
The ones ones look like a nice peice of furniture to sit on.
I am sure some idiot will turn this into a cleaning substance then a new reg article now will s how the word is now infected with tiny nano tubes in our bodies and blood stream and there will be no effective way to clean that kind of mess up.
Mr. Clean where are you when we will need you?
No no no no no!
I remember the very first day Windows 2000 was on sale and the retail price was going for $740!
So I am sure a mad rush sticker shock would happen here as well.
It is a good idea to just wait.
To those who care.
I forgot where I read it at but years ago I read the technical info behind some Internet Explorer addons that come with windows and the RESEARCH add is really for and by the Neilson rating system.
When you disable the research addon then Nielson ratings do not get any data from your browsing.
boy oh boy
You know for a fact they will try and concieve a child in outer space for sure!
I am sure the pregnancy will held secret and the baby will be turned into a lab rat.
Paging all Tivo owners!
Hey guys nice article but to your commentors who own a Tivo. I know what a DVR and time shifting is but I never operated one. By owning a Tivo is it like netflix and must pay monthly charges? Or is it just like a VCR you buy once and record to your lil hearts fancy?
I would love to own a Tivo but not if I have to pay monthly payments. For that I call it a rip off if true.
