Watch out. With the NSA and PRISM if you move your taxes to 'The Cloud' the government will have all of your data.

That's what she said!
Rich people don't create jobs, (well maybe in hobby endeavors like chasing the X-Prize).
Demand creates jobs. Especially small businesses forming to meet those demands.
I'm glad Doctorow had the spine to stand up to this. I really couldn't stomach another battle of talking heads.
But if this was Apple vs Palm and iTunes instead of IBM and a mainframe OS, the fanboi's would be saying but Apple developed their software and have the right to deny the use of it to anyone else. Since this is IBM I bet the debate is going the other way... Lets go take a peek....
Yes, the DMCA is stupid.
Now, can I ask WHY people buy T-Shirts, undies, etc from big designers?
I just don't see why you would buy something for $100 from a designer label when you can buy something without a name on it for $4. I mean, the amount of marketing that has to go into this must be insane! It would be one thing if the big fancy labels used legitimate, well-paid, non-sweatshop labor to make these things, but I don't see that happening.
I'm sure there's some medical/advertising standards authority that'd like to rip them a new orifice for popularising morbid anorexia in this way.
Anorexia won't make your head bigger than your pelvis.
The real WTF is that they're making fun of people with macroencephaly!
The biggest problem with this sentence is its misplaced prepositional phrase. The Human Genome Project probably cost $3B up to some point, but the sentence may imply that the first sequencing cost $3B. There was a recent article in the NY Times discussing this problem.
slightly off topic, but my biggest complaint is when legitimate sites use domains that are not their primary domain for this stuff. You will have a site like mybank.com, and they will have links to banking-mybank.com (I know that First Horizons does something like this, and yahoo.com is a non-bank entity that does this.)
Is it that they don't know that a domain like that can belong to anybody, or that they don't care? this kind of thing reinforces the bahaviors that make identity theft possible.
P.S., I considered a third option: They buy these domains to keep legitimate phishers from grabbing them, and then say "as long as we have this dubious knock-off, we'd might as well use it for something". A fourth option is that they have never heard of vhosts.
More than any other single person, the one responsible for what you, and I, and everyone we've ever met, considers 'Music' in the modern sense.
