Senator Joe Lieberman, the one guy ...
who is an expert on nothing utters more verbal garbage than any other US politician.
Roll on January, he's gone then.

If he had simply shut his mouth the whole thing would have blown away.
If you think Max is bad, go and check out his father's Wikipedia sheet. Talk about keeping his philandering in the family ... Oswald, the notorious Fascist, during one marriage he had an extended affair with his wife's younger sister Lady Alexandra Metcalfe, AND with their stepmother, Grace Curzon.
Unfortunately video cameras hadn't been invented then.
in Bittorrent versions.
Save trees, don't buy the paper version, it's such a waste when you thorw this formuleic book were it belongs ... in the garbage can.
Politicians and a guy called Max seem to be the thinnest skinned types around, so obviously this clap-trap is to corneal the evil doings of elected officials and sons of Fascists who like their females in fives.
There should be a provision that excludes any public official, or any person, paid from the public purse from being protected by this legislation.
It should not be used to conceal things that have occurred, as was the case involving the five females with a male dressed in a Nazi uniform. If someone in the public arena wishes to perform certain unusual tricks they should be expected to face any exposure.
Of course, like all attempts at censorship, the UK courts jurisdiction runs out after a few miles at sea and then anything goes. Naturally the House of Commons would remain a potential source of hot gossip.
It would be nigh on impossible to imagine either Cameron or Obama apologising ... for anything.
Obviously the NZ police got carried away when some rock-head FBI type dreamt up this major screw up of several levels of law enforcement.
If this had happened in the USA the FBI would have no doubt had some paid snitch lying about Dotcom having done some reprehensible 'crime'. just as they framed the former US/ UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter. Obama, or at least V-P Biden, bought by Hollywood.
At least people can accept that the NZ government has scruples and stands as a beacon of hope.
In most countries where movie making and records are big business, the industry groups have bought off the politicians (lobbying is a 'nice' word for bribery) and the politicians have dutifully 'honoured' their commitments.
Nice to know some countries haven't sunk as low as America, Britain or Canada.
In my many years in communications I have been involved in telecoms switch-overs from Central Office (telephone 'exchanges'), to civilian toll networks and the military Autovon system and never was one done during so potential users could 'see' it.
Obviously Virgin did it for the publicity, which was both effective and cheap.
California is huge, especially when compared to Delaware or Rhode Island, a 4-way split would make the whole mess far more manageable.
Or, if on the Indian/Pakistan border, it could split Kashmir apart from it's warring neighbours.
One problem, everyone, especially children, will have to learn new names for any additional continents formed.
Day deliveries are bound to disadvantage the two-people working families.
The P.O. could either have evening deliveries; or have a truck parked in a market square for pick-up..
In VietNam, if you include the addressees cell number behind their name, they will send them an SMS!
And having created the expectation, they get to take the heat.
And Tim Cook can't walk on water, either.
Not me, Everyone knows that Apple is a monopoly, unlike Amazon and Android/Google, and doesn't let lemmings, or sheep, roam wild..
Take a read of government hamburger meat specifications which permits amounts of faeces, hair, bone-chips, etc.
And they throw in veins, ears, lips, etc. - all beef, you know.
And good quality chocolate is supposed to have around 6% of bug parts in it.
Mmm, finger licking good?
Time for WIPO to step in and stop this nonsense.
fines this bunch of turkeys.
external SD capability it might be interesting.
Microsoft was never thought to be a moral, straight company.
Even the name "Internet Explorer" was pinched.
How many companies respond that quickly with a patch? Well done, Samsung!
The other alternative is the Ostrich technique where a company denies it has a problem, such as with Antennagate. Less effective, but cheaper.
MAC addresses and sue everyone who uses them under the US DCMA. Getting all my “DMCA takedown notices” ready.
Perhaps DECCA will dig out it's patents with respect to Decca Navigator technology, as well as HiFix, for it was big in circular radiation patterns, phases, etc.. They also were encoded with ID. That would shut Skyhook up.
Decca rises from the dead!
You have to wonder whether this is to stop people peeping inside as a glued carbon-fibre case might even prove a challenge to iFixit.
as several countries in SE Asia have questioned the efficacy of RoundUp, including it's use on rice, which is very popular with humans and rats.
In fact, rats like it so much that they are caught and barbecued in the MeKong Delta, after the crop is collected, as they are so fat.
Let's hope it is more reliable than iCloud.
There's enough flight delays already.
that thieves have as few brains as iP5 purchasers.
I hope that the find my crap program doesn't use Apple MAPS - they'll never find them!
thinks the pope is a good guy. The pope has no morals.
With a population of 94,852,030 (2011-Source: World Bank) and many of them in abject poverty, they are entitled to make money, even if it is satisfying the sexual desires of the West. I know no other country which exports such a high proportion of it's females - THAT is what is disgusting about the Phils Government.
Screw the pope, if he wants to financially support such countries, let him do so ... only thing is he has no money, it's been spent defending preachers charged with attacking children and paying the fines.
I guess your system doesn't have parental controls! Just make sure you clear out your cache and do all the other necessary things to defeat Plod!
The USA is always using international bodies to enforce it's policies, even if it is a failing policy.
They did it to VietNam as a result of their loss of face in losing the American War in VietNam. And the result? A country that is so self-sufficient, so resourceful, it can often do things more effectively using low-tech than high-tech. (Ever seen a ships propeller shaft turned in a manual lathe?)
Once again, the US is trying the finger in the dyke trick with North Korea. There are many countries who actually support North Korea (being an 'enemy' of the US is enough to achieve that). China is the world's manufacturing facility and China is a very big supporter of North Korea.
Even if ships don't want to be tracked entering N Korean waters, they drop ship in China and the goods go by rail.
Same with the US no-nukes (except for our friends) policy. Pakistan and India have them (and no inspections), Israeli got the materials from the USA (no inspections) and N Korea has enough to occupy it's neighbours.
I worked for a small company one of whose products included very high voltage, very high current switches that were designed as nuclear weapons triggers. Cute blue colour with lots of glass. They came in to the plant in high security vans, they were stared in the general stores, and they were carefully tracked.
But the company sure bought a lot more than it used; the surplus were shipped off to some mysterious destinations and to account for the missing units, sworn statements together with photographs were used to satisfy the US authorities. How many more operations are going on like that?
This policy is merely a small impediment that simply creates a market for those shady types who operate world wide, wheeling and dealing.
Computers are one of the easiest products to 'smuggle' since so many units are awash in today's world. It is likely there are far better computers in N Korea than this UN financed unit.
South-east Asia and China barely exist.
Google has them completely covered.
Thank you, Google, and for being so current with things in Ho Chi Minh City.
You would have thought they figured out this by now, after seven years.
Actually it isn't ... it's another cheap production short-cut.
Besides Apple claims their products are NOT normal ... that they are 'special' (at least in their minds). Obviously this heap bak is less than the experted Apple standard.
Return the junk - under the 30-day Money Back Warranty and say it's because of the heap back.
these are detailed and coherent.
Pity Apple can't emulate them in the satellite pix.
should be lots with FB printed on it soon.
And poor old Zuxker*ucker hasn't cashed his in yet! Poetic.
Remember we are talking of Lemmings Those furry creatures with strong legs who follow each other.
They are also known to sleep out every so often outside stores with pictures of nibbled fruit on the windows.
It's called Quality Control, something that is lacking in Apple ... witness their crappy MAPS app .... Quality Control.
They even check cars these days, before they leave the factory. Not Apple.
Apple is usually the one at fault with connectors as it always want to "improve" things to make them incompatible (think USB charging with those couple of extra resistors).
Incompatibility means MONEY to Apple.
Sounds like another case of The Grip problem they experienced with a certain version of the phone.
a fatal combination.
USB connectors, bashed out by the millions and Apple gets it wrong?
More likely they have another adapter to sell? Even better, a reversible one, so their favourite type of person can't plug it in backwards.
revisions or 'upgrades'. and they won't be able to sustain their drip-drip annual upgrades and money-raking operations.
They have to fight the competition as Android & WinMob cell handsets will offer so much more variety, tailored more closely to peoples needs.
The Far East, for example. needs waterproof units and only Android has them (if you don't believe visit Singapore or the Indochina region in the rainy season) and dragging a Zip-lock bagged iFone out to use is so degrading.
Some people love to spend all their waking hours on social networks, and they have their socially enhanced handsets, others need more business oriented units.
What needs revamping is the US patent system so all these artificial blocks to progress are eliminated. They are considering rolling back auto patent lives so maybe this will spread to other areas of technology.
The Apple/Samsung trial was an aberration, the judge bent so many rules that another trial is warranted.
so unlike it's counterparts in other countries.
Their healthy legal attitude is to be recognised.
So many governments break the law in achieving their goals that law-breaking becomes the norm. Look at the USA and that piece of tattered litter called The Constitution, that much hallowed thing American children are taught about. Nearing the value of toilet paper now that all those sworn to uphold the words are busy passing laws that shred it still further.
The UK doesn't even have a Constitution and runs rampant over the rights of it's citizens.
Canada, but even more so New Zealand, have Constitutions that work and the judiciary that observe them.
The FBI is looking more stupid as the days go by. And Holder's US Justice Ministry can't even get service of documents straight!
We always delete Internet Explorer from our workstations.
It gives users piece of mind.
Jobs might have treated his employees like a maniacal fanatic but rarely would he compromise on quality.
The Don't squeeze phone obviously embarrassed him and a few heads were pushed.
This COOK guy has screwed up serially: first with Siri and now with this joke called maps. It's not as if Apple hasn't been purloining user location data. The satellite maps are crappy old black and white, low resolution junk. Russia sat ops are selling better quality sat pictures.
This fiasco shows just how good Google maps are.
no doubt persuaded to plead guilty and gets off lightly with 50 years.
US Federal sentences don't get time off for good behavior, either.
At least France doesn't surrender it's own, unlike the UK.
These are unannounced, undocumented features - in this case for the US NSA so they can tap all iPhones without difficulty. Their motto is: Your secrets are ours.
and was rushed to market.
Guess Apple needs to employ a screamer like Jobs to get the job done.
Apple has only been buying so-called mapping companies for three years.
Perhaps they should have stuck Beta on it and then everyone would be happy. Siri didn't work well, give Apple a few more years and they will get it right.
HSBC has a great system.
Computer logins have Forgotten Password? prompts. Well HSBC is just as handy.
If you know the card holders name (it's printed on the card!), access a convenient genealogy web site, ascertain the card owners date of birth and Mother's maiden name, then call Customer Service (the free 800 number is also on the card) .,, and Bingo!
Banks call it security.
could be fatal!
Big enough to take aircraft down. Remember the Airbus in the Hudson? Canada Geese were fingered In the Flight 1549 crash!
Another 'reason' for the UK government to keep on using IE6.
Giesecke & Devrient, Germany, have them ... if you are a carrier.
when they turn on their little iPhone 5 and find their laser keyboard and holographic projector don't work, will take it back for 'repairs'..
That's the problem with promising the world and not delivering.
Still, there is always Samsung's Galaxy Beam with a built-in projector. That actually works. Maybe a keyboard later?
Consider: "And under Chinese law, ZTE and Huawei would likely be required to cooperate with any request by the Chinese government to use their systems or access for malicious purposes.”
"And under US law, manufacturers would likely be required to cooperate with any request by the US Government to use their systems or access for malicious purposes.”
Tit for Tat. Obviously the US government is double-dealing as usual.
The US government requires back doors in all manner of equipment. Only Phil Zimmerman has guts enough to tell them to stuff it.
'We've never claimed chip-and-PIN is 100 per cent secure is not the line of patter that a suit at my HSBC branch said
And now we have the (drum-roll) SecureKey which is garbage, doesn't work and has people changing accounts. You can't even read the squinty characters if you wear glasses and they even catch fire (doubles as a one time cigarette lighter).
