Comment It's not just the emails (Score 1) 571

It is the whole package

Her "Charitable" foundation
Her questionable financial supporters
Her claims of doing the people's interest when she is obviously a right wing (republican?)
(I have always insisted that the left wing exists only to do the right wings dirty work)
Her obvious lying, She is a proven bull shit artist of collossal magnatude
Then you add the email crap which (whether or not it was treasonous) was a complete security violation.

Do not distract yourself arguing single components of top secret communications, look at the big picture and the mentality/attitude behind it.
Is this who you want steering the ship?

Submission + - Apple update breaking phone connection?

Grand Facade writes: After a recent software update from Apple, my Andriod File Transfer application has lost it's mind. The app is opening with no android phone connected and tying up my computer. Is this real or do I need a fresh tinfoil hat?

Between free market and free for all.

Capitalism only works if you have enough capital on your side.

Free market works until someone gets too big and starts throwing their weight around.

Free market works until someone with more capital comes along and dominates your market.

Capitalism/free market works until you get a lawmaker on your payroll. We passed that point a long time ago!

It has become politically correct to be politically correct, being politically correct has gotten so politically correct that anyone who is not politically correct is arrested, ignored, avoided, or scoffed at as a nutter.

When all of their cow-orkers speak Hindi..

What is big business going to do when the short term payoff HB-1 workers go home and take their new found knowledge with them?

They will cry crocodile tears about how the offshore engineers are beating them at their own game.

They will need more government subsidies and tax breaks to survive!

Everything looks like a nail.

No one feature is going to jack Linux into mainstream.

What has propelled Linux to it's current position is price point and versatility.

The ability to fold spindle and mutilate an OS as desired.

I fear elevation to mainstream would be its demise.

More is better is marketspeak for more money, I think Linux is pretty great right now.

Comment I was always worried that the feds (Score 1) 373

I was always worried that the feds would tie all their digital resources together and put the smackdown on "us".

I now realize that would ensnare "those that matter" so that will never happen.

Now the private sector has made marketing the winner of that race.

Thank you Google and all the cell phone "helper" apps that map out our every move.

I remember when Google's motto gave "us" the impression evil was not on the agenda.

Seems that some folks have a different definition of evil!

The microscope shoved up my butt is getting bigger, just like boiling a frog.
