Because the vast majority of people saying they want a device without DRM don't understand that all of the CONTENT that they want (netflix, hulu, amazon video, etc) is using DRM.

So while firefox was smart enough to end a product that will be universally panned by reviewers, they are stupid to think that they can copy whatever Google does.

There's a big difference between scanning files and collecting them.

When they find a suspicious binary running and attacking other computers on the network, how do you propose to examine it without collecting it?

You are just proving my point that alarmists know nothing about how IT works.

Sorry Mozilla, you have poisoned the well for many developers. The whole Brendan Eich situation and your cowering to the social justice warriors makes me not only avoid your products, but actively remind people that you are a sleazy political organization first, with a browser tool far second. Google's heart isn't much better but at least they have tact in their public relations.

Comment Avoid New York (Score 4, Insightful) 149

Every time I see a story like this or the problems Tesla has in NY, I can't help but think of the "New York is open for business" commercials flooded on the TV news channels. One of the most taxed and regulated states in the nation claiming to be business friendly.

Fuck Noo Yawk.
