I have to spend 2 hr's getting down town to a switch site today. I will be doing this for over a week and its a waste. I am even using public transit as driving here would take even longer. Now outside the city (Toronto) I can drive around a lot better. I agree the public transit is better in the city but overall i hate coming into the city. This is why I love even out side of the bedroom city/suburban areas. Moving out of the main city has MANY advantages such as easier communities that make people HAPPY.

I keep seeing the Us government keep putting out new revelations of how he did things to try and make him look worse and worse. In all honesty, I get the feeling at least some of what they are saying is pure BS in a smear campaign. Its just the feeling I get and am interested if others are right.
And as others have stated, for him to get all this data so easily (nothing shown shows any real hardships in gathering data) to me says these NSA systems may be very open to attack. As there security measures seam rather lax. I get the feeling there idea of security is a armed guard standing over the server watching for hackers.
my 2 cents plus 2 more
In Soviet Russia, o just bend over and take it, you are in Russia sucker.
Depends, do these super-sized Alaska King Crab legs taste better or worse. Very important question. Also will my crab claw cracker need to be upgraded Ie MORE POWER
This can be considered scary if devices you can not remove could be affected. IE pacemakers, screw with that and you could kill the person. But then take items like a advanced artificial arm with loads of electronics getting fried by these scanners. These types of devices are expensive and usually customized to the person. So yes better training needed and the pat down should be some what realistic for someone who just cant do through the device.
Don't Panic all, I have read the “The Zombie Survival Guide” so I will survive. The rest of you are screwed, but I will live. So long suckers, but remember, Don’t Panic

honestly the 5 year warranty of some drives greatly affects which drive I buy. I am usually Seagate fan but if a Samsung has better warranty I will buy that instead. I remember when I found one time the drives form Segate I wanted were only 3 year so I bought WD and Samsung at the time. So if WD and Seagate drop their warranty period and other makers keep higher warranty then my cash goes to the bigger warranty. If you don't stand by your product then I have no reason to either.
Jeebus. I think I could actually forgive the misspelling of Seagate (at least you were consistent), but your grammar/homophone abuse kills me: where/were, there/their, buy/by.
I once had a coworker that largely taught himself English from books, newspapers and TV in his home country before moving to the USA. Very smart guy, but made English mistakes like this due to a lack of formal English education (which is difficult to correct as an adult)
This post was quite intelligible despite the grammar/spelling errors, so cut him some slack, you don't know his native language.
Native language is Canadian, I mean English. Never been the best at it either. But this is what happens when I type fast and get back to my job.

My question is, if I find a device on one of my motorcycles or car, is it legal for me to remove said strange device. One of those times I like being in Canada
its one control freak company (apple) not liking that another control freak company (adobe) will not release control of its protocols. sorry but the fact apple is the same in that it is very closed sourced. Hell apple expects you to give up control of even organizing your own music to its applications. Them not liking another control freak company is just funny. He makes valid points but those points can be turned back on apple.
Thanks for making my point, ipad is not a computer, there for it can't be considered a netbook replacement. Don't get me wrong ipad has its uses but its a over-sized iphone (I say iphone as ipad will take a sim and can be used on cell network for data, so closer to iphone the itouch). I agree it could be a nice toy but apply is trying to say it will replace a netbook, but again there are many reasons why I can't see that ever happening, only some listed above.
Choice is good, and many may like a ipad, but lets be honest, its not a netbook replacement. they may say it is but it can't be as a netbook is a standard linux/windows based toy while the ipad or the up and coming smiler products with andriod software are not full out systems. some will liek the netbook for what it is, and it may be all many need, but it can't be considered a netbook replacement.
