Except you should goof the math and actually pay them $0.008.

Taboola is an advertising and user-tracking company whose CEO says the company looks for "unorthodox solutions to monetize and engage consumers."
"Prior to founding Taboola, [CEO] Adam [Singolda] developed his analytical skills while serving as an officer in an elite mathematical unit of the Israeli National Security Agency. Adam is an honored alum of the [IDF's] elite Mamram computer science training program, graduated first in his class at the Officers Academy of the IDF." Right from the source.
In other words, block that shit at the edge of your network.
I think it's more likely they were afraid that Bing would continue to have the upper hand. Or the lower hand. Or maybe the hand stroking both up and down...
The FlashBlock extension for Firefox has an option for "Block HTML5 video as well." Silverlight, too.
Why not both? It's not like losing a civil complaint would absolve Lenovo of criminal liability. A lawsuit is the only option available to the consumer.
I see they have gold colored print, that has to boost the sound quality by about 10 bucks. But is Monster selling titanium-plated connectors for them yet? Have any advertisers signed up to preload audio advertisements on the cards? This doesn't seem ready for prime time. Sony, give me a call just as soon as you're ready to start charging me a monthly fee!
The microphone on the TV stays off until you command it to listen.
Five years ago, I probably would have believed this. Hell, two years ago I might have bought it. But after the revelations of June 2013, I don't trust claims like "the microphone stays off until you command it to listen" any more than I believe "no, the NSA does not collect data about millions of Americans" or "we at Lenovo thought consumers would enjoy ads injected into their SSL sessions."
Trusted by default is done, thanks to overzealous advertisers and overzealous governments. That goose is cooked, go find a fork. Everything is suspect, now. Engineer accordingly.
You'd think the young would suffer from age discrimination just as much as the 40 and up crowd.
When it comes to employment in the US, the young are expected to work for peanuts in exchange for gaining experience. They also tend to be mostly part-time, owing to other responsibilities like schoolwork, and therefore aren't eligible for those pesky socialist expenses like vacation time or health insurance. The 40 and up crowd faces discrimination because they already have the experience to demand fair compensation (and benefits) for their time.
Employers love young workers. If more companies could figure out how to run their entire operation on the backs of teenagers working 20 hours a week, they'd gladly do so.
They can already take your house, they don't need a new treaty for that.

Then Facebook access would be monitored like phone calls.
We're talking about the Land of the Free, here. Facebook access is already monitored like phone calls. You don't even have to be in prison.
Two y's, for a youble yose of his pimpin'.
It sounds to me like the system is already being DOSed, but from the inside. Locating and capturing one guy produced 13,000 separate case files?
The lesson every government agency will take from this is that each action, investigation, or report, no matter how petty or inconsequential, should somehow involve generating enormous tomes worth of documentation. Attach a reference to the entire United States Code to every case file, for example; some part of it must be pertinent. Then anytime anyone files any FOIA request, no matter how narrow or mundane it is, the cost-satisfy burden will simply be too high to meet.
During the webcast, the product manager for Falcon kept referring to a telemetry problem on the SpaceX side that they needed to resolve before T -2:00. Somewhere around T -8:00, reports started showing up online that there was also an issue with the AF radar. The webcast never clarified what the telemetry issue was. Elon mentioned a "1st stage video transmitter (not needed for launch, but nice to have)." It sure sounded like they intended to scrub the launch if they hadn't fixed the telemetry problem by T -2:00, so either the video transmitter really was needed, or they had another problem.
Can you give an example of swat being used to apprehend a non-violent person?
Here you are. Don't be offended if I don't wait for you to finish reading, it's going to take you a long while.
