I use laptop with touchpad. What is this "mouse" of which you speak?
I'd like to posit that Howard Shiplee's attention span has been well asleep up until 2 years ago. Holy flying fig, man, what have you been doing since 1985!?! Sleeping like Rip Van Winkle?
I remember this really old adage that my mom used to tell me... Something about reaping or sowing or some shit. Been a while since I heard that one.
Hey, corporations are people. Extending that to chimps isn't too far a stretch.
I don't see how they prove intent here. Empty container -- I could store guns, money, drugs, or *any other valuable item* I don't want exposed and out there for someone to heist by smashing the glass in the vehicle. I don't suppose I have a right to secure my property in any way I see fit? Intent is missing here and the prosecutor is going to have to stretch the truth quite a bit to prove his case.
I want one, but only if it comes with working option to suspend Asimov's 4 laws.
This is the stupidest thing I've ever read. Not only is it a blow to Mint, but to free software in general. I just got done crowing to friends that Linux isn't full of NSA backdoors, and then this pops up on newsfeed. Sheiss.
I suppose our developer doesn't understand that one can go with slightly more intelligent tools, like apt-get on the CLI, to get those packages upgraded? If so, he's no developer I'd give a shit about.
Bullshit. I make quite a good living from transcribing operative notes for these very surgeries. From the reports I see, they do make mistakes, but not as many as one would think one would while using robotic equipment.

Also being a Detroit native, I agree with this poast. I'm just a couple blocks north of 8 Mile in Warren and it's not the type of neighborhood I delight in walking around at night.
I type medical transcription for a living. Without headphones I'm pretty much fucked because I'm not only violating HIPAA, but I also can't hear the subtle nuances in some folks' voices, especially when dealing with English as a second language speakers. I just had a laptop go dead on me, leaving me not willing to spend more to repair it, so while I waited for a cheap replacement I worked on an older laptop that didn't have bluetooth, so I couldn't use my headset with it. I dealt without the headset for a bit, but I had to leave more blank spots than usual in some of my work for it.
Around Christmastime 2011, I developed paroxysmal non-nodal reentrant supraventricular tachycardia, likely stemming from my maternal grandmother's history of similar cardiac problems, and underwent radiofrequency catheter ablation of the bad conducting circuit in my atrial tissue. I'm left with no fast pacing circuit to increase my heart rate on demand when I'm exercising. I know people with implanted pacer/defibrillators, and I work as medical transcriptionist and have typed a zillion of those procedures, and the things they despise about it is the problems with tissue pocket infections and interval battery replacements, requiring the site to be reopened, the equipment removed and replaced, antibiotic washout, reclosure, etc. I'll be bugging my doc at next visit to research it and determine if I can get one of these.
Really, you should have ended right here:
"...Fifth Amendment lets you refuse to answer the question of whether you even committed the crime at all, and I didn't see what was so great about that, because it is everybody's legitimate business whether or not you committed the crime."
Here's why: You don't have to say shit to anyone about anything who is accusing you of a crime. The onus is completely on them to provide the evidence. They can ask a judge for warrants to search your person or property, but NO ONE can compel you to answer any questions as long as you tell them that you invoke your 5th amendment privileges and refuse to answer *any and all* questions. Once you begin answering questions you open yourself up to having anything you say used against you in a court of law, and NO ONE wants that.

I guess HIPAA just doesn't fucking matter. I work with medical records daily. If I fuck up I'm liable for $10k per incident. Fuck these guys.
Oh, but providing a free source of knowledge and learning materials would never benefit anyone, ever.
