Comment: Because everyone on SlashDot hates Apple? (Score 0) 631

CurrentC will be and also-ran until hacks and stolen data bankrupts one of them.

FTC/DOJ will be on this for Conspiracy in Restraint of Trade (sooner or later)

Remember when USA sued Microsoft over Free Browsers { heh it seems pretty clear that was a mistake - How is it now legal for Google not only to embed Browser code in their OS, but to even make it the whole OS... Wow.}

Apple makes nothing from ApplePay. Zero. Nyet. Nada. Zippo.

They {CurrentC & Co} did NOT stop taking Visa, MasterCard, Amex et al, they only refused a better way to access them out of GROSS FEAR and inability to compete as well as a urgent need to collect more confidential customer data for parasites to hack and steal.

The rest of the choices are just head-fakes for negotiation and Texas in particular is a joke where at worst he gets to laugh at the idiots who take their candidacy seriously, and at best the longhorns repent on their policy of institutionalized racketeering. If you want to actually site the thing, study railroad maps.

Area 51 would be my choice, that would at least meet Calistan's "Proudly built by illegal aliens" mandate.

knows string theory is bullshit...

Modern physics and understanding of the Universe is perfectly adequate to calculate trajectories but nothing more.

The same can be said for pre-Copernican physics.

As long as Physics continues to confuse Mathematics with reality we'll never get any further than that.

Modern scholars are not great thinkers, they are politicians.

I don't need to explain anything. Dark matter is bullshit and you know it, or you wouldn't flame out on a nobody like me.

BTW: Bitching? I wrote one sentence. You go girl!

Now go away before I point a Dark Energy Ray-gun at your screen and collapse it into black hole that eats Russia, Ooops. Too late.
