Except that they don't encrypt your data, you do. Probably would have helped to RTFA, huh bub? =p
I remember when some BBSes would require a real name only (no handles allowed). Those were usually creepy, Christian only or honeypot boards.
Because it's redundant and unnecessary and has negative privacy implications? Because I want to at least *feel* like I have SOME sort of control over what I do online and where my personal effects end up? I know, I know, it's a lost cause I guess.
I'm f***ing sick of Google and their integration of Google+ into Youtube (and obviously their other, and 3rd party services). I don't like Google+. I like Youtube (less and less these days, however). I don't use GMail, or any other Google service (besides search when DuckDuckGo doesn't find me what I want). It's like they're trying to force-feed us their horrible social network via proxy (no pun intended). NO I DO NOT WANT TO POST MY YOUTUBE COMMENTS ON MY DESOLATE GOOGLE+ ACCOUNT. Just keep them separate, they were never meant to be tied together.
You know you were thinking of it while you read the title.
secretly idolize Steve Jobs...hahaha, you hit the nail on the head, friend. I could only imagine things turning out in a similar fashion if Apple actually had built upon Linux instead of BSD for OSX. Except Apple would have probably had much more influence because of their history and credibility.
Shuttleworth claims people that oppose his little project are doing so because of politics in open source, then in the same breath labels everyone who's against Mir "Open Source Tea Party" ?
Fucking hypocrite. You know, I used to love Ubuntu back in the day. At 10.04 I switched back to Debian because I was sick of feeling like I was being led forward on a dog leash. It hasn't changed. Mark hasn't changed, and he thinks he's some sort of open source leader, far beyond the little garden he's planted. There's a whole landscape of different vegitation, man, and you didn't create it all. Stop acting like you did.
I worked for California schools for 4 years as a technical consultant. It hurts me deeply to say, especially since my first son is just starting Kindergarten, that these schools really are going to go with whatever is recommended to them at the highest corporate/political level. I helped bring LTSP and thus Linux to thousands of elementary school kids over this period as a pilot (and after successful pilot, transition from aging Windows PCs in media/computer labs) in 7 schools. It felt so amazing for me to have the honor of exposing this many children to open source software. But, after the acting technoogy director retired, a new one stepped in and quickly pulled the plug on the whole setup, reverting back to Windows.
It's the same at deeply rooted non-profits for kids. I worked for Boys & Girls Clubs in California, doing the same thing - in addition to LTSP, though, we also had Linux on the back-end fileserver and firewall. It was a great setup. Then, we heard that Microsoft suddenly (and unexpectedly) had given them a grant for new PCs, on the condition that Windows was the only OS installed, and they essentially weren't allowed to "tinker" with them.
The RIAA and MPAA are very large and rich corporations. They have that much money to throw at conditioning young children that software is something that comes with many restrictions and cannot be shared freely, modified or "tinkered" with. Schools will go along with it as long as there's a benefit for them. The moral standing of the people at the top of the education system's pyramid aren't exactly the best, from what I've experienced, and I'm sure many of them have very close ties with other "industry" executives. Scratch my back, I'll scratch yours. Makes me think of "National Lampoon's Senior Trip". Ha!
It floors me how the school can not, at the VERY LEAST, sympathize with the kid and try to fix the issue of the initial bullying. But it seems like they're all still quite tied up in the whole...GO WILDCATS! GO SCHOOL SPIRIT!! WOOOOO!!!! bullshit that runs the school system. Now I want to download the app and go to the school, and "shoot" the ones who put him in juvie.
Now, am I going to get arrested for suggesting that?
+ Give them a hands-on demonstration of setting up a webserver in Linux.
A friend of mine's is "Disconnected". When you connected to it, it would say, "Connected to Disconnected".
You mean they post lame comments on Internet forums to try and prop up their self-image?
What happens when night falls?
When asked about how his opinion of the surveillance programs have changed, he said his perception of them have not evolved since the story broke worldwide. "What you're not seeing is people actually abusing these programs."
So I guess bypassing the Fourth Amendment doesn't count as abuse.From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Search_and_seizure#United_States :
"A search occurs when an expectation of privacy that society is prepared to consider reasonable is infringed."
Real Americans aren't paying attention to R vs. D since many years ago. If you believe the consciousness of the majority of the American people align with what you see on your television from the U.S., you're just as ignorant.
