Reuters reports that nineteen companies caught writing fake reviews on websites such as Yelp, Google Local and CitySearch have been snared in a year-long sting operation by the New York Attorney General and will pay $350,000 in penalties
I don't know how much it cost in man-hours, but 19 * 350 000$ (6 650 000$) is a lot of money. I wouldn't be surprised if they recouped their investment and more...
Quebec doesn't have three times to population of Alberta
Actually, almost three times yes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Canadian_provinces_and_territories_by_population
First and foremost, we have lots of fresh water which one day will be worth more than gold, we have forests and a lot of mining potential (diamond, nickel, titanium, rare earths) and we do have oil though it's not being exploited yet.
Anyway, as I said, if it's true that we have nothing redeemable, then please, by all means, kick us out of Canada !
Well, then pay and shut up about it.
You (rest of Canada) bitch about sharing your oil money, why should we give you access to the east for free ?? You can't have it both ways. You either keep us, share the wealth and shut up or lose access to the east and our natural resources. Thank you very much
We won't move to please you. We were there first anyway...
Weird because when french canadians tried to have their own country, the anglos were in the street claiming their love and begging for them to stay a part of Canada. Remember the 1995 referendum ? Yes the one where the liberals cheated... There is nothing we would love more than have our own country. Help us get there at the next referendum and then we can start to love each other again.
Btw, I'm not the anonymous coward and I do not share his views about beating up people...
Would you prefer to be raped or dead ?
Just have the video processed by the CPU. It's not like it's very busy at that moment
It'd be like an IT version of Freaky friday.
I used to use iGoogle, then they took it from me.
I used to use Google Notebook, then they took it from me.
I used to use Google Reader, then they took it from me.
If it wasn't for that, I'd probably be excited to hear about their new product, but I'm not. Not anymore. I will not use Google Keep especially because I do not want to get used to it so they can take it away from me. I'm done.
So you can count me in that group Aguazul2.
I don't know why, but I'm suddenly reminded of an ad Apple did in 1984. There was a girl throwing a hammer at a big screen...
Clone the spouse of course ! That way, you can get a threesome without the guilt.
What if the cloning process introduced some kind of noise. It could be interesting to keep on cloning the machine itself to see what kind of mutations it would come up with ! Maybe one would come up with the ability to clone 2 times !
Thanks, now I'll be thinking about that all day !
they would just produce intermodulation distortion on the speaker degrading the quality of the actually audible spectrum.
Maybe that's what they actually heard ? With what's been said, all we know is that they could tell there was a difference...
Unless there was fraud (which there probably was). They elected to be in their situation. What can we* do ? Should we even intervene ?
Isn't it up to them to get their freedom ?
* We being North Americans since I'm from Quebec
