You don't need a service to extract the audio.from a YouTube stream
While I have no objection to anyone doing this themselves for the convenience etc, I DO object to someone trying to extract $$$ from something that is not his
That was a period after Connif, not a comma
And a geological period at that.
Voting is done by the masses and the dead.
Ammo will soon be illegal. (Guess why)
In any jurisdiction where a machine sits between the voter and the offical count, no election outcome can be trusted.
"the people" as in "Government, of the people, by the poeple for the people" have been disenfranchised for decades.
The situation now is more along the lines of "Government of the powerless, by the stooges, for the elite"
There are no candidates for office anywhere in the "free" world that are not controlled by corporations & their cartels, trade unions or organized crime.
Even if sufficient numbers of independant canditates could be elected, their ideologies are so fragmented that they would be unable to stand against the onslaught of the powerful self-interest groups.
A wiser course would be to outlaw leaving junk in space.....
I was tempted to mod this funny.
There is a common misconception amongst law-abiding people that making something illegal will change other people's behaviour, because they themselves change their behavour in response to a change in law.
As society becomes increasingly fragmented, the fraction of the earth's population that could be described as "law-abiding" is decreasing rapidly, and the process is further accelerated by governments that bow to the pressure of special interests.
Examples of laws that are defied or ignored abound.
Here on Slashdot we tend to revile copyright laws, and other IP laws.
Others openly defy laws controlling substances -- drugs, alcohold, tobacco etc.
Why on earth -- or above it -- would anyone abide by a "law" that would be ultimately unenforceable?
...employers will just ask potential employees to accept their HR staff's friend request, as the article yesterday stated. But one could easily get around that by making sure the HR staff is in a Facebook list that has no access to a user's wall/timeline and other info.
Your personal, private affairs do not belong in the workplace at all. Although I have friends at work, and we do socialize with them, none of them are facebook friends, nor ever will be -- and they all seem to be OK with that.
I'm not sure what I would do if a personal friend came to work for this company, but since it isn't likely I won't fret.
Time and time again I see people losing jobs -- and friends -- by failing to keep their employers/jobs/work out of their private lives and vice-versa.
My answer to such a request from HR would be, "I strive to keep my personal life out of the workplace, just as I don't discuss work-related issues with family and friends. For that reason, I don't make facebook friends with colleagues. You are welcome to connect with me on LinkedIn, though, since that is where I keep my professional connections."
If that doesn't satisfy them, then I'm perfectly happy not working for them.
Will the Blu-Ray improve the awful acting in the 1st half of season 1?
Are they coming out with a new series of dolls -- oh, sorry, "action figures" -- to further mine the pockets of the lame?
