Comment Get Pennied to death.... (Score 1) 837

Toll roads are such a lame thing.
I can't stand them with all of their toll plazas that cost a bunch to build and maintain and wasted money staffing them.

Will this approach pester people also?
I wonder how penny-ing people to death will work.

A solution needs to be found to maintain good roads.... not sure this is the solution.

Comment Dilution Factor (Score 1) 1097

If there were thousands of such events that Lampooned not just Muhammed, but all religious trappings, each year.... would this sort of lunacy of attacking people over cartoons become less common?
If the scope of the event was big enough would become more of the norm throughout the world?
Seems like killing people over imagery should be what is not tolerated in a civilized world.
That sort of thing is what needs to be extincted.

In security it says:

Allow Apps downloaded from:
(3 check boxes)

1. Mac App Store
2. Mac App Store and identified developers
3. Anywhere

Seems like if you only had the Mac App Store checked then there would be no threat.
Even if option 2 was selected, it seems like it might be fairly safe if the developer's are not trying to infest a computer.
Obviously, option 3 would allow for all kinds of mayhem.

Plus if you have your machine set to only install from the app store, doesn't it have some sort of handshake problem? I don't know how it all works, but I know when I install a new version of the OS on a Mac it only lets installs through the app store work by default. You have to disable that feature to install "Trusted" apps from outside of the App Store environment. You can also choose to wing it and allow all apps you find to install if you click the right check box.
