...and nobody's getting fat, except mama cass.
can apple wipe just the 'work' portion and leave the personal (my email, etc) alone?
then shut the hell up, then.
I was asked by the folks at my work to install exchange stuff so I can run outlook (sigh). I started the install when a dialog came up asking if I will grant 'whole device wipe' privs to the IT guys. fuck no! its MY device! whole system wipe? really? JUST because I want to install calendering from exchange on my phone?
I canceled and so far, my home phone has no work stuff on it.
it would be really nice to be able to keep them separate and risk-free.
apple has nothing like this, do they? normally, its an all or nothing wipe, just like outlook 'wants'.
you really want the schnitzel to hit the fan, don't you?
you have it backwards.
why do the 'watchers' think THEY are so important that they get to violate our privacy?
yes, right to have your papers and posessions secure from undue seizure and search. its written. go look it up!
wow, I never thought I'd see the day. never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that the police want more power than they have, now.
colbert's opening line (from years ago) fits well here:
"no animals were harmed during the making of this work. we tried, but that monkey was just too damned fast!"
the old joke "commenting is for newbs; if the code was hard to write, it should be hard to read!"
(no, I don't follow that, myself!)
the world is not willing to accept your 'always capturing video and audio' concept. we are rightfully annoyed at your persistence and insistence that it won't be used for Bad Things(tm).
you are clearly trying to defuse fears before they get too far advanced but let me state again, clearly and unambiguously:
DO. NOT. WANT.
it was an interesting idea for 'labs' but just not really fitting into what we, as a society, want.
please just stop trying to force the issue. you come off as jerks when you do that.
its not reliable, though.
however, if you run it in RAIN-5 mode, it can be more robust.
you are so very wrong.
shareholders care about short term AND long term gains.
long-term, you invest in the country and its people. that will ensure stability.
short-term, you can do many things that are harmful and just give quick profits _for now_. but only republicans and idiots (oops, I listed the same thing twice) believe that short-term gains trump long-term ones.
you're goddamn fucking right!
if we don't protect ourselves, we won't HAVE a middle class.
you corp bootlickers really want that? think it thru, please. erosion of our middle class hurts everyone in the long-run.
I do think the country owes me (as someone who was born here and spent nearly 50 years paying taxes, working, investing in my own country and infrastructure) more than they owe some disconnected foreigner who comes here for short-term gains and then goes back home again.
the 'free market' has not shown itself to be self policing so the gov HAS to step in and ensure fairness to the people who LIVE here.
yes, it owes us that. we paid into the system in many ways and its only right we get first dibs on the pay-outs. that includes having a decent job that can pay the bills and keep us in the standard of living that we have EARNED. yes, earned. this is not asking for any handouts!
look at the huge touchscreen in the tesla.
other cars also have TS's. no tactile cues that you can feel your way around.
so, lets sue the automakers who make those things.
if you don't sue them, then you are not serious about this 'law'.
either do the full thing or do nothing. if distractions is the issue, you can spend the next 10 years suing this and that. are you (mr. johnnylaw) ready to do that?
screaming young kids in the back seat are more of a safety issue and distraction.
you gonna touch that third rail?
well, are you interested in safety or not?
answer the question!
if they had only let the good yahoo engineers work from home, none of this fark-up would have happened...
we (the workers) are not supposed to share the wealth.
(didn't you get the memo?)
ceo's should rightfully get that 400x salary. they're worth every penny.
