There's pretty much nothing about Bitcoin that requires it's inventor to be an economic expert. In fact, given the beliefs of the general Bitcoin community, being an expert would be something of a handicap.
The ringing is your brains signalling your taste center has never grown in, as you grow older but not wiser the ringing will increase trying to signal you to develop some taste and individuality.
Have you no shame whatsoever?
Someone who has more time then me should do a matchup between those sicko's who think a fully clothed woman has no expectation of privacy in public with those who think a security camera is 1984 and see whether there are matches.
For me I learned today that Slashdot has a lot of creeps.
Depends on your county
We had 'em in Los Angeles Co., and also here in Montana. Here it comes thru about every two months.
If the answer is "Well his life is in danger because he has lots of money in Bitcoins that can be stolen!" well, then there's another flaw in Bitcoins, or at least in keeping Bitcoins on your own hardware, which is what BTCheads have been advocating since the Mt. Gox 'asploded.
This isn't an issue for a normal rich people, because they don't keep their money in something like paper currency that can be easily stolen. It is in banks. So you break in to their house and kill them... well you don't get any of their money. The bank doesn't say "Oh hey you killed the guy, so by RPG loot rules you get his money!" If that's a concern with Bitcoin because it is like keeping lots of cash on hand, well that's another disadvantage now isn't it?
Which I think sounds like a really good idea, either way you do it.
And if it just hoists the whole to a VM, no need for config dumpster diving for individual programs that may not play nice with Wine.
Or, why running Win9x is pretty durn safe. Malware that expects XP-or-later networking just gets confused.
The person who posted this comment is apparently a paranoid psychopath and you are effectively praising him.
Apparently, paranoid psychopathic trolls are tightly knit.
But no problem. It'll be +500 in another hour, +50,000 by tomorrow afternoon, and then wrap back around to zero, at which point he loses his quarter and his game is over.
No, I'm not arguing that Apple shouldn't be paying more taxes. Not just Apple, but many large, profitable companies that don't pay much or any tax should pay more.
However, the problem is NOT WITH APPLE. It's with the laws that let them do this. Fix the damn laws, don't blame the companies that use the current laws to ensure they do THEIR job properly (i.e. make money).
Great... then prosecute them.
If you can't, then it's legal.
If you don't like it, change the law. More specifically, if the taxpayers (and politicians) in that area don't like it, then they should change the law. Otherwise, what's the fucking story here?
To say it's 'export controlled' is an oversimplification of the restrictions around working with those nations.
But in simple terms, this is about *contributors*, not downloading. And if it weren't an issue, then Fedora people wouldn't be trying to game it for plausible deniability (which of course doesn't work when you say "Hey everyone, I want to be able to claim plausible deniability so could you just omit some information so I can do that?"
"Off the record" means "this will get into the headline" and everything you say can and will be used against you to get pageviews.
Having actually been an "off the record"source on multiple occasions, I can firmly say you're full of it.
Apple - nor any corporation - is not a charity. It's not their job to pay more taxes than they legally have to. Their job is specifically the opposite - generate as much value for shareholders as they can.
Any company that pays more than they have to by law should be questioned, or the shareholders should revolt. Actually... I can't think of any example of one that does, intentionally at least.
So - the issue is NOT with Apple - TFS even says that the Australian tax office agrees this is all above board - but the issue is with their tax system. It's structured to allow that, intentionally or not. There are all kinds of tax incentives in the world, and they're all there to encourage the right mix of business development and growth that the region needs. Essentially, tax is used as an incentive to offset the disadvantages that would otherwise naturally be there (labor cost, non-ideal locations, skill levels, etc.).
Don't be mad at Apple... EVERY company does this. Haters be hat'n, I guess.
If everything appears to be working smoothly between family members,
Didn't you watch a single episode of The Dukes of Hazard growing up? The legitimate party is always the last to know, and by the time the penny drops they're one hell of a car ride away from interceding in the nick of time, bursting into the court room at the very moment the justice picks up the pen and says out loud to Boss Hogg and his henchmen in particular "these papers all seem to be in good order".
You're missing the point.
My argument was facetious. It would be no more about making abortion rare than "assault weapons" bans, "Universal Background Checks" and gun registration are about preventing gun violence.
The true purpose of tracking everyone who had an abortion would be so that they could be prosecuted if and when the political winds change enough to make it possible, just like those gun control schemes are about hassling,harassing and tracking legitimate gun owners until the political winds allow for banning and confiscation.
