Facebook users don't expect their unposted thoughts to be collected, nor do they benefit from it.
The benefits given to you by Facebook for your unposted thoughts are on par with those for your posted thoughts: more tightly targeted advertising and the opportunity to receive special offers from Facebook's partners.
I suppose the retailers need to implement technology to disrupt mobile data signals, be that passive disruption based on structural design of the retail store or active jamming. That would force internet users to use the only wifi signal available.
Or inspire shoppers to walk outside to get a signal, at which point they're further from the item and closer to their cars when they find the item on-line for a few dollars cheaper.
Volcanism May Be Heating Up
If the Vulcans are heating up, it must be their every-seven-years pon farr.
Under an all-republican congress with a veto-proof majority.
The Republicans didn't have anything near a veto-proof majority in the Senate; they had only 53 seats at the time of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. The vote was 54-44, with only Hollings (D-SC) crossing party lines to side with the Republicans. Fitzgerald (R-IL) voted "Present" and Inhofe (R-IN) didn't vote. So even if the Republicans picked up Fitzgerald and Inhofe, they would have still needed to flip 11 Democrats to override a veto, which was highly unlikely.
A man who's administration set in motion all of the major changes that lead to the last big financial collapse.
Certainly not all of the major changes. Clinton signed the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, repealing key elements of Glass-Steagall. Clinton also made the mistake of listening to Robert Rubin and Larry Summers' belief that derivatives didn't need the transparency of regulated exchanges.
They reasoned that the “use does not qualify for First Amendment protection as a matter of law because it literally recreates Keller in the very setting in which he has achieved renown.”
So if live football games are like their video recreations, how do I control the player with the ball? This will really help me with my fantasy league next year.
Collapsing companies are more profitable than growing ones - less to invest in, more of the Gross is Net. A better picture would be looking at Microsoft's Year-on-year revenues.
FY12 $73.72B +5% Y/Y
1Q13 $16.01B -8% Y/Y
2Q13 $21.46B +3% Y/Y
3Q13 $20.49B +18% Y/Y
4Q12 was $18.06B, so even if revenue is flat Y/Y for 4Q, Microsoft would still show 3% Y/Y annual revenue growth.
The USDA is currently investigating and says there is no health-risk.
