Many more cars produced, MUCH less human labour. Does this author really live in the real world? Human labour goes from "living" to "dead", that is, humans, to artefacts that humans have created ( machines ), in all industries.
Having said that, BI would only be one more way that capitalism tried to maintain the profit stream. A stream, as it turns out, that is shockingly bad for humans anyway. It would not surprise me if they gave it a try, given that QE and the socialising of debt was only a sticking plaster.
I mean, what I wanted to know about the latest scandal involving MPs; MP has under-age sex with teenage boy. Or something to do with abuse of anyone? Rape Victim harassed by nutty DJ.
If you've got kids and you want to keep them safe on line, take responsibility. You don't buy them a chain saw and let them go into the garden, so step up and take responsibility for your own offspring. Don't expect every one else to "help" you. A step for a hint, don't let them use the net unsupervised.
If we go further down this path then then we'd all just best set our proxys to that one in China and be done with it.
It is always the parents fault....always....he sounds like a catch...well done Mrs NutJob for landing him....and he's screwed his daughter over in so many ways...as you have all rightly pointed out...guy's a twat...just a shame he's an IT twat too...I hope I never have to work with the cnut :)
I've said it before, and I'll say it again....yawn....what a fecking waste of human resources....imagine what good these companies could do if they were working for humanity and not just for their bottom line....all pulling in the same direction as opposed to fighting each other...a doubling, at least, of productive capabilities...in the mean time....watch the court battles...this is, after all, a natural system that must have been given to us by god....
If we, as a species, feel that we "know it all", and that our "currently established laws" somehow describe the totality and that then allows us to make sweeping statements about what is and what is not possible then we are, as my title suggests, children.
Keep asking the questions...
Our fire has become our electricity...what will our electricity become?
The point was made before....in capitalism a company does not get "taken over" or enter into deals that are not "beneficial to it", unless they have to. "They have" is defined as "keeping their profitability", in this case. It's easy to blame M$ if we dismiss the larger picture. For a better understanding of that, head to http://www.realityinfo.org . Peace.
"Secondly he accused Google of blocking Windows Mobile phones from **working properly** with YouTube." ( My *s )
So you can access OWA via IE and get a full interface but on FF or anything else you only get a cut down version. In fact, as you log in you get told:
"If you are using a browser other than Internet Explorer 6 or later, you can only use the Light client."
Restrictive? I mean, we pay for the service...Oh yeah, there's the problem :)
There are two strands to this story
1) Business as usual. Your tax payers money straight into the hands of private companies.
2) Less murder machines on our planet. Result.
No more killing please people, this is not the dark ages. Fuck, it’s not even the 90s. Time to grow up.
I'm still looking for the IT angle mind...
That made me smile..I wrote a very similar line in a comment of an assember(80x86) file viewer that I wrote, many, many years ago. It was able to show 4GB files in the good old DOS days..I wrote..
When we have files larger than 4GB, I'll think about re-writing this....
Time to head to the drawing board...I'll give you a kick when we meet your wake up point...don't get too comfy...
I suppose this is why we're in geek-ness...it's just so dynamic and fun :)
Google it...Money is not the root of all evil...of course...but the antagonistic competition for profit is...it pits me against you...money is only the oil...still, we can, as a species, live without either...You lot have just not worked it out yet..one day :)
Time for the brightest minds on the planet to waken up I'd say...
"If all goes according to plan, it will dock "directly and autonomously" with the ISS's Zvezda module on Thursday, 24 February."
WOW! Really!? We can do this but still we have war, famine, poverty, unemployment, homelessness back down on the planet...tech, I'm sure, will help save us, for sure...I think it's way over time we used it for the benefit of all humans...oh yeah, that means you! I'm connected...
"More recently, Sony has expanded its legal offensive to other PS3 hackers by requesting subpoenas that, among other things, would force Google to identify people who viewed videos posted to GeoHot's private YouTube channel."
Really? So "knowing stuff" now is a crime. Well, we saw that with that dude that downloaded that terrorist training manual...I wonder what would have happened to all those readers of the (g)olly R0dgers C00k book back in the day? Rip your brains out now in case you have ever seen or learned anything that you've never put into practice which may or may not be deemed or not deemed "illegal" and against the profits of company x,y,z or the gov....run!
"Small set back for gov"..."large step forward"..."the move is great"....it's great for one thing..and one thing only; PROFIT.
They tax you.
They give that money to large "boys club" companies.
Who pay you
They tax you
It is *NO* problem for this system to create tech that it "doesn't use", in any way....as the usefulness of the project has already been realised...until next time...
Get off now you know :)
I know you all accept this is a "as it is", and "how it has to be"...but the elephant in this particular room is that *any* of the day to day working of *any* of our civil SERVANTS is in any way classified at all.
Truth and openness, it would seem, are the enemies of the state.
What are they hiding?
We elected them.
They WORK for us.
They are only our REPRESENTATIVES, but yet they keep all their discussions etc behind closed doors.
You are a fool if you think this is healthy or “pro-you”; it’s not.
The top of Page 2 was...I got to the bottom of Page 1 and had a good chuckle along those very lines...
"Open sourcers might chuckle at the predicament of the Windows fan:"
Of course that dude that *expect*s M$ to fix this! Yeah...And world capitalism really is really good for you and for all humans...DOH
Skull and Cross Swords as I'll be long in my grave before some folks waken up to the horrors...
So the gov pay, using collected taxes I presume, lawyers / others to protect folks that they have, potentially artificially, labelled as criminals. In essence, they have created a rule that means they can pump more public taxes back to private companies...yeah...another win for the boys club :)
