"More than half of those officials were executives, and Ms. Barra said five other GM employees have been disciplined but remain with the company. Ms. Barra wouldn't identify the employees by name, except to confirm that two low-ranking engineers involved with the design of the defective switch were dismissed. Also fired were lawyers and officials responsible for safety and dealings with regulators"

Do you know what you're talking about?

How about this: They provide BOTH options and we'll see which one is more popular in 2 years.

Whichever car company makes it easy for my phone to be the brains of the entertainment system, and their screen just be a dumb terminal for my phone's data will get to sell me a new car.

While a valid excuse, that's another reason why Linux is still "not there" yet. The fact that there were only a couple legit games for it proves it's still in it's fetal stages of becoming a consumer OS. It's got a long way to go. Valve was a huge shot in the arm though. They are the best thing to happen to Linux in awhile.

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.

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.
