It actually will be Obama who decides whether to end US government oversight of the internet

The fact that Obama wants to do it makes me think no.

Re: er....

Then retire sooner. All you have to do is spend less. Mister Money Mustache suggests living on 50% of your take home pay. Or less.

Good luck with that.

They were lucky that the instruments were all pointing at the comet at that time? I thought that was the point.

Judge gives Zuck a US$6 million Brazilian

BuckeyeB

So they don't want to comply with a court order? This is not the same as a cop "fishing" for information and asking for the keys to the kingdom. This is a specific request with a court order attached. This seems to be the way it is supposed to work.

So why are they not complying with the court order? Are they in the pocket of the drug lord?

Get ready for mandatory porn site age checks, Brits. You read that right

BuckeyeB

The usual way to "prove" you're a legal adult is to provide a credit card number. They already try to get you with the provide your credit card number for a free week and cancel if you want and they hope you forget to. They can now combine the two. Quit trying to legislate stuff. I can keep my kids from pr0n sites myself. Maybe some parents can't, but there are products out there that can insure that most sites remain difficult to reach. I don't need government telling me what to do.

FBI won't jail future US president over private email server

BuckeyeB

Re: Female Privilege

This isn't about female privilege. This is about liberal privilege. The head of the FBI is an appointed position. The President of the Untied States is head of the Executive Branch which the FBI is a part of.

Mark Zuckerberg's Twitter and Pinterest password was 'dadada'

BuckeyeB

I do use one password for all the crappy sites that require you to create a user account just to read a forum or blog. I use a stronger password for any "real" sites I use. I use a unique 12+ character password with 2-factor authentication for each bank I have an account with. I use my "hardest" password for my personal email. Personally, I think that your personal email should be the most secure password/account you own. Don't agree? Is it just email? NO. Practically any site that has a reset protocol requires that it sends a password link or code to your email. If that is compromised, your bank may well be too.

Give me your home email + your public facebook info(ie pet's name, child's name, highschool attended, etc and someone can get into your bank with the "Forgot Password" link. Make that the most secure.

Get it yet?

Cash Grab

This is probably all about getting tax revenue, not preventing terrorists getting access to funds. Government entities like to do things "for the children" and "to stop terrorism" so that the majority of people just nod their heads and go along with things.

ESA reveals Rosetta's snaps of MARS and EARTH

If we are going to bother to put a camera on a craft and launch it at something with the idea of providing pictures, why can't they put a color camera in too. I'd like to get a pic of something that wasn't color-enhanced.

Kickstarter hmmmm ?

Is it possible that the Kickstarter thing is just a troll to raise money and doesn't really exist as a real product? While we're wagging our tongues about ethics, they're just collecting money from "investors".

Another DEVASTATING Chelyabinsk METEOR STRIKE: '7x as likely' as thought

BuckeyeB

7 times?

Another useless comparison without scope.

If the odds are 1 in a billion of something happening, then 7 in 1 billion isn't statistically important to me. If the odds are 3 in 100, then 21 in 100 would be statistically important as that would be slightly more than 20%. Since they don't mention the base odds in the article, i suspect that it falls into the category of the former rather than the latter.

Einstein's Theory of "relatively"

"Whether governments are willing to put up the relatively small amounts of money needed to take things further is another matter however."

Small amount relative to what?

Brit boffin brews INSTANT HANGOVER RELIEF

BuckeyeB

Social aspects

This guy's stuff doesn't go on to address the social aspects of drinking. Many drink in a social setting. By creating a "pill" that mimics the effects of drinking, this would hardly be a market idea. A hangover/drunk "cure" that would tell receptors that you're no longer drunk and your brain works at full capacity following a binge and a pill pop, then that'd be some stuff. Of course, since it only "fixes" the mind and not the alcohol content in the body, this "pill" might cause people to poison themselves to death with alcohol, while being sober. Fun stuff.

Wopper

I guess none of the guys working for these equipment manufacturers ever saw war games. Put all your stuff on the web. What could happen? It makes it convenient for us. Microsoft keeps finding this out the hard way. They'd include all these features to make it easier for programmers to do cool stuff easily, and a**hats found it easy to screw up people's computers.

You should lock up your wi-fi. You can let your friends on without letting those you don't know on too.

Who really is the customer?

We talked about this very subject in my MBA classes.

That is why they're perfectly happy saying let the customer decide. They know who the customer is. The every day user does not.

There you go. Another reason not to have this app. People will try to get a high score. You know they will. Just look at the people who play crap games just to raise their XBox gamer score.

I'll have to disagree with you

I think Ocean's 11 remake was better than the original. I liked Sammy D and the cast, but breaking into song in the middle of a heist just doesn't do it for me.
