So is it OK to have a "hate campaign" on businessmen that want to suppress the rights of others to bear firearms?

What about my right to smoke where I please? Walk nude where I please? Drink liquor where I please? Spend my money how I please, as opposed to having it seized through income taxes to support government programs that I don't necessarily support. I would guess you're ok about being a bigot in those instances and limiting my rights, right?

You obviously don't really understand libertarianism. The government should stay out of people's personal lives. Yes. But what you fail to understand is that your liberties quickly deteriorate when they encroach on other people's liberties. Harassment isn't a PERSONAL right. That's just stupid to even think that anyone's political belief would be OK with harassment.

And secondly, they weren't arrested for the Facebook posts specifically. They were already building a case based off of their harassment while the other girl was alive. This was simply more evidence that they were a liability to society because the Facebook post showed an obvious lack of remorse for being indirectly responsible for a suicide.

I'm not surprised you posted this as anonymous. Just a ridiculous post.

Slashdot.org is not a newsfeed for Pintrest and Best Buy shoppers. It's for technical people that are interest in geeky stuff that may or may be available at your local retailer yet.

All standards come out long before actual products. 4K TV? 802.11ac? MiraCast? All these are technologies that are built on standards that have just been introduced in the last couple years. Yet people on here have been talking about them before products are actually introduced? Why? Because this is a fucking website geared toward shit like that.

Absolutely. Though it would need to be something more advanced than standard bluetooth at the moment. It needs to be able to mirror/send video from the phone to the screen, as well as take Google Voice/Apple Siri like communication between the devices. Also would be nice if some of the manual controls would map to the phone as well. Next Track, Pause, etc.

As an individual or a business, you are supposed to look for ways to pay the least amount of taxes. That's life and there's nothing really wrong with that. If someone didn't look for ways to get as many deductions as possible on their tax return, you'd wonder if they were mental and just enjoyed paying a higher rate. The same applies for businesses. The government so far has said that there is nothing wrong with what they are doing.

The core problem here is with these loopholes. The tax system is a constantly changing cat/mouse game of people/companies finding loopholes and the government closing them. The REAL question is why hasn't this enormous loophole been closed yet?

I really fucking hope this disaster of an OS is fixed in the future. I'm at the point of thinking of migrating to Apple or Linux and i fucking hate Apple and i still don't think Linux is ready for the desktop.

I'm a programmer and i'm switching back and forth between about 3-4 windows constantly and sometimes up to about 6. And i can even have them layered so that i can monitor a console window with only a few lines showing. Everything is accessible with ONE click.

It'll be a cold day in hell before i switch to a constantly-full-screen OS. It's just not even remotely practical for anything but consumption.

With the need for the Federal Government to "Save our Economy" the last 5 years, I wish they had decided to put that money toward replacing the entire copper phone system with Fiber Optic. It would have produced thousands upon thousands of jobs of long lasting jobs and left us with a country that is much more prepared to move forward in this century. Instead with threw away hundreds of billions of $$$ on stupid projects that no long lasting benefit.

Depressions/Recessions are the PERFECT time to handle issues like this. It's one of the issues I have with Washington over the last 5+ years. I can't think of one long lasting project that produced long term results for the entire country and produced long term results. There are many public projects during the Great Depression that are still being felt today. I don't know if the same could be said 80yrs from now about and public projects from this Recession.

I'm not sure if you're trolling or not, but if you're serious, you have no fucking clue what you're talking about. I graduated from a fairly renowned University here in the US that offers Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Software Engineering, as well as a couple other more specific engineering programs.

  - Computer Engineering focuses on the hardware, and is more synonymous with Electrical Engineering.
  - Computer Science and Computer Engineering students took nearly the same classes except for about 3 classes where Engineering students took more math/software classes classes and Computer Science students were able to take a concentration in a different subject of interest outside of engineering

I'm not sure what shitty school you went to, but in ours we all learned LISP, algorithms, AI, programming theories, discrete structures, and software modeling and construction. The idea of an Engineering student doing fucking Wordpress and Ruby on Rails for a degree is an absolute farce. And if that's what your university offered in their program you should be ashamed for your school.
