I am in Québec and I was the victim of an *intentional* aggression by a surgeon that left me with a handicapped left arm. I am in the process of complaining to the medical college. I could not file a lawsuit because the system in Québec in biased against malpractice victims. This makes it so that surgeons can intentionally butcher anyone they dislike for whatever reason.

Comment Camera in a TV (Score 1) 238

I just realised: it is possible to put a camera in a TV that uses the lens that seems to be for the infrared remote control. It is technically difficult but not impossible. Question that remains is, has it ever been done?

I have seen spy cameras disguised as other things. For example a wall clock with a black dot that happens to be a spy camera.

Linux is not communism. Part of the appeal of Linux is that Microsoft abuses its monopoly to eliminate competition (OS/2, BeOS, Wordperfect, QuickTime, etc...). By defending competition, freedom of choice and a free market, Linux defends capitalistic ideals. And people are allowed to sell Linux: SuSE does just that.
