I think the anti-drug warriors are more interested in the money that are to be made from "fighting" drugs and locking people up.

I still can replace the brakepads and discs. Change the oil and things like that. But that's about it. Currently I have a problem with the alarm going at random moments if I lock it. And it is impossible to do a proper debugging. I finally found a unofficial source to get the repair manual so I can look at it but I will have by trial and error, bypassing one censor at the time.
When all the electronics starts to break down I fear it will be expensive in man hours.
And why use http(s) at all for communication.
I agree, I used to buy 1-3 apps/games pr. month. some for a dollar other a little more and a few more expensive.
Now I stopped playing games on my phone or tablet because I am sick and tired of the virtual coin-up machine that is has become.
I don't mind paying for the games I play, but I refuse keep paying for it.
According to the Wall Street Journal the proposal shows the challenges and risks facing the U.S. as it looks to new, potentially intrusive surveillance technology to help stop criminals. Many of the government's recent efforts have scooped up data from innocent Americans, as well as those suspected of crimes, creating records that lawmakers and others say raise privacy concerns. "Automatic license plate readers must not be used to collect information on lawful activity — whether it be peacefully assembling for lawful purposes, or driving on the nation's highways," says the ACLU. "Without strong regulations and greater transparency, this new technology will only increase the threat of illegitimate government surveillance." National Rifle Association spokesman Andrew Arulanandam says the NRA is "looking into this to see if gun owners were improperly targeted, and has no further comment until we have all the facts."
I have 4gb in my IMac (although just a 720gtxm) . I am not a gamer but Final Cut Pro uses the gpu when analyzing or altering video content.
I had a problem with th OS X version of steam. Client updates failed when placing the program in a different folder than applications.
I am sick and tired of people with their stupid religions.
No thanks. I'd rather keep my freedom. I find the governments intrusion/power grab much more scary than terrorists.
(Sadly the people I vote for who are against it, are in a minority thanks to the fear mongers in politics and the news media)
Exactly. That was one of the major reasons I quit cable tv too and one thing that really makes me feel good about it. That I don't support all that shitty reality tv anymore. I don't think I will ever go back to cable tv again. If I did, I would be a requirement that I could choose not to support those channels.
That sadly includes the discovery channel after their 2007 decision to "focus on the people behind the technology instead of the technology" or however they worded it in their press release.
Or watch it on Netflix. Unless they chicken out too, american style. (zing)
well that was more sad than funny
IMHO the only thing that is different with mormons are time. When I look at different religions, they all seems crazy.
I know these people have been doing that at least since 2009.
I guess selling the largest energy provider and infrastructure in Denmark to Goldman Sachs is not going to help that goal.
It is nice anti-apple spin. This case is so much more than just Apple and you had to go and kill an even more important story, just for some apple bashing.
