She wrote the idiotic self-contradictory book called Lean In which is the woman business advice book du jour. It is obvious she has connections to get herself trumpeted all over MSM for this farce on pulp. Simply assign this book (and her) the same importance any sane person does to anyone spewing the latest business advice targeted at a female audience. None - because ultimately it will be completely forgotten and irrelevant in six months time.
It's only man made if man created the sun. Most compelling scientific evidence I have seen links solar radiation cycles with global warming. This includes the recent downturn in temperatures.
Because it benefits car companies to have a higher MPG rating.
Are you still ingesting massive amounts of mind altering substances?
I would probably find this app annoying, but so is Apple's schizo application vetting & approval policy.
Animal entrails can be read more reliably.
I didn't think that was possible. The Nook is a better ebook reader than both. I can actually read and transfer PDF files to a Nook with a USB cable.
Lance Gooden is a Republican. This is the party that is always talking about Big Government, "freedom from government", etc. Freedom from government unless your rich friends get caught polluting a river by a drone that is.
I don't have a college degree and get $55/hr. I may not be Bill Gates, and a dumbass (I only speak 3 languages, can write code and build hardware), but I do OK. Oh, and I also don't have massive college debt to repay, because most people I've encountered that speak of how awesome of a degree they have are usually the most incompetent.
Does that count for "showing them how it's done" ?
Yes, but do you believe that Facebook will actually do that?
This from a guy (Zuckerburg) that said his users were idiots for trusting him. Repeatedly he has lied, deceived and cheated his business associates, users, and media.
"criticize it as having an idiotic interface" would be a more realistic comment.
That and it's branding sucks, which is unfortunate. The person that chose the name "GIMP" should be hung drawn and quartered.
Yes we know what it stands for, but 99% of the new user base that could have used it doesn't. Why? Because he/she read the name first and passed on it, and is now using another image app. If the app can't take itself seriously, why would the user?
Go to OpenSecrets.org, find each candidate, select 2012, select the industry tab, then the "Campaign Cmte & Leadership PAC Combined" option. Note the combined Computers/Internet amounts.
They are all whores, doing the bidding of their masters. But it should be no surprise to readers of Slashdot, that if Orrin Hatch likes it -- you probably won't.
I think Cricket does this -- which is a mobile carrier that most normal people all know and realize sucks, moreso than AT&T -- which is hard to do. Primary it caters to (and exploits) people in disadvantaged communities and the working poor. You mainly find Cricket near rent-to-own establishments, et. al. So you may know someone with a Cricket phone yourself because they have no choice - they need a pay as you go phone and have little cash - this is recession after all.
Regardless, everytime I have made a comment online regarding Crickets crap service, and exorbitant text fees on pay as you go service the comment either gets modded down, or a gushing defense of Cricket is posted by what is obviously a paid shill shortly thereafter.
Every. Time. So I am really interested in what they will try and do with this comment. If they were smart it would not be modded down, but ignored. My guess is most likely trolled.
Yeah, and that will never happen. The day that happens all developer tools become illegal, all file sharing becomes illegal, including FTP sites, and putting an app on a SD card becomes illegal. Ain't gonna fucking happen and your full of shit. And what type of app cannot be found on iTunes or the Android market. And barring that can't be installed on Windows, Mac OS X, or linux.
BTW Cory Doctorow needs to STFU as well, he doesn't seem to have problems with making money of the non-free Kindle. He is always on his high-horse about censorship unless its at Boing Boing. And I for one have never heard any righteous condemnation of Federated Media and it's dodgy deals with small bloggers, because oh wait, he is making fuckloads of money from Boing Boing and the Federated Media partnership.
SOPA is about control. The web is the one area that the powers that be do not fully control, this legislation provides the mechanism to accomplish that, in much the same way that the true intention of the PATRIOT act was to strip away other rights in the name of security.
Wake up people.
