I notice that, as a ONE MILLION id Slashdot poster, you have a HUGE record of high karma posts? Or are you just another CUNT?
The entire company could be killed next year by a disease transmitted by a dirty telephone.
And no wouild have noticed...
As there is no American aboard that plane, move along, there is nothing to see here
Not so. There were three Americans in the group of 239 that died on that flight.
The premise of your comment is ignorant.
So far there is no debris at all. Thats pretty amazing considered where it was last seen. It either didn't crash, or didn't crash where the search is.
Not "amazing" at all if the jet was VAPPORIZED by a small thermonuclear device placed on the jet by the same NSA operatives that brought down the Twin Towers.
SpaceX, more than any other of the "private" space companies, has shown a compentencey for building rockets.
My Ass Is Blue, or whatever the pipe dream that Jeff Bezos is dumping money into, is not a player, not just for Mars, but for any real space flight.
Orbital Sciences and SpaceX are the real players.
200k plus for *ONE* cop? I know that health insurence and retirement bennies add to the base wage, but 200k plus a year? How much is this dude making take home?
Of course there are some people in the world with that name unfortunately.
What percentage of the people named "Satoshi Nakamto" are / were engineers with the skill-set to pull it off? Or, perhaps
I wonder: There are published documents supposedly written by this mysterious "Satoshi Nakamto", what about doing a style analysis with works by this guy who says it isn't him?
But on a broader note, this is sensationalist journalism designed to drive sales and page views of the resurrected Newsweek, once a solid pillar of "journalism", now not much more than the Daily Mirror.
It's early yet. Believe it or not, many Slashdot readers do other things during the evening hours like go out (of the house, not just the basement) and socialize (with real people in the flesh)... Sometimes pick up the kids, swing by a grocery store (believe it or not, many Slashdot readers do not live on Cheetos, Dew, and the occasional Ramen noodles anymore).
Had this story been posted during working hours, there would be twice as many comments by now, since most Slashdot readers surf the site at work...
You have every right to receive, for free, at no additional cost, any broadcast TV signal your antenna can bring in, and to record it on a DVR, and to have the DVR send it to the TV via Ethernet if you want to.
Yes YOU do...
This is just subcontracting the antenna, DVR, and Ethernet part out to someone else.
And thus, it's not YOU.
At least, that's the argument.
Whenever I read posts like yours, I think of "Comic Book Man".
Typically, porn-related ads are a sign of a desperate website.
Creating an advert that takes advantage of the Facebook API, and than buying screen time on Facebook does not involve human interaction of any kind on Facebook's part.
A flaw? Perhaps. But your thesis is not supported by this occurrence.
First, there is nothing wrong at all about advertising adult services to adults. While the majority of Americans are prudes, there are some that are not.
Second, you know as well as I do that as soon as Facebook became / becomes aware of this incident, they will remove it.
Sure, everyone knows that Facebook is derided and hated at Slashdot, but really, what else should they do? And anyway, Little Sophie from Sequim (pronounced "Skwim" by the way) will be set after her parents hire a lawyer extort a few hundred thousand from Facebook for "psychological damage and suffering".
This clearly demonstrates that "you" are the product!
Yes, yes, yes... We know this already. So much so, in fact it's now an official Slashdot meme.
But of course we are intelligent educated adults with good sense, so we understand this and know how to avoid being sucked in, right?
The case in point demonstrates at least (but probably more) two things: One, children (the story is about a 13 year old) are not generally as "worldly wise" as us intelligent educated adults with good sense, and that Facebook is facilitating a commercial activity that potentially exploits vulnerable people, some of whom are minors.
Shocking? Perhaps, but this is just one that slipped through to be discovered. Of course we are the product, and being the product, it goes without saying that we will be exploited while using Facebook. Or *any* "social media" including Slashdot
This just shows how low things have sunk, something that should have been expected.
There's nothing wrong with "erotica" and indeed there are many who think that there is nothing wrong with children discovering "erotica", but there are limitations, exploiting vulnerable woman (and men) is questionable, and a promotional system that allows for the exploitation of children is certainly well "across the line".
Facebook is a big machine, perhaps they were not aware of this "problem" customer. They should at least be afforded the opportunity to take care of this and perhaps close the hole.
But yes, I think we already know that we are Facebook's "product".
I have been harassing you the past few months on Slashdot.
While I do not agree with your views, my behavior has been unacceptable, and mean-spirited.
I want to apologize to you for this, and assure you that it will not happen again.
Well, no, it's not really news that when you tell TWC or Comcast you're bailing, they will dig out "promotions" to keep you.
I would be very suspect of the claim from the Customer Service rep that the bill will only go up 5 or 10$ per year, though, that's not my experience.
I do think that the $70 or so the OP is paying for Internet and phone is still too high, unless the Internet is wickedly quick. And seriously, the IP based phone that he is still paying $30 or so for is WAY too much.
Power goes out, Internet goes out, phone goes out. Spend that $30 on a treditional copper-wire line for 911 and such. Otherwise, why would you need more than your cell phone? IP phone service is WAY overpriced.
Yes, I know, after the copper wire hits a switch of some kind, it probably gets routed over IP anyway, but at least with copper wire to your house, you almost always have a dial tone, hence 911.
A complete automatic milking system which lovingly cares for each cow? Maybe 30 years.
Almost fully automated dairies are already a reality, systems in place that allow the cow to enter into an automated system when it feels the need to be milked, the finds it's way to a system of machines that disinfect the teats, milk the cow, send it on it's way. There are automatic massage / scratching machines, systems that robotically clean stalls... Seriously, most people don't realize how automated dairy science is. 30 years? It's already here.
