AC is correct that it is a company phone, considering it said this right in the subject. (and quoting Donald Trump in a comment, seriously?)
I'm sure my employer would have something to say about my password protected Blackberry (with probable HIPAA implications, since I work for a Healthcare company) being searched like this.

For many courses and standardized tests, only a few kinds of graphing calculators are allowed to be used. By allowing outside code to run on their calculators, TI risks losing their place on this list (and thus, sales) since those that administer these courses/tests might find out that TI's calculators allow outside programs to run that allow problems to be solved more easily.
When I was growing up, it was not unusual for 15 year old kids to work at places, even in a warehouse (but not in a factory). But they were only able to work for a limited number of hours per week, the job had to be relatively safe and they needed permission from their school to work at a job. Generally schools were allowed to choose the criteria, such as grades or behavior to allow a student to work, while still giving a principal the ability to make exceptions for students who needed to bring money home to their family badly. Usually the jobs involved cleaning up the dirt, paper and box debris that litter a warehouse. Or collecting the carts from the parking lot. Although occasionally a kid would be able to work in an electronics repair shop fixing things under supervision, or working in an automotive shop cleaning up and working on cars under supervision. I used to hang drywall boards when I was 15 during the summer, as far as I know it was perfectly legal for me to work.
Err, how are we "leaving the internet alone" now? DMCA, ISP regulations, wiretap laws, computer crime laws, pedophile laws, copyright laws, etc etc etc. The only proof of a "big change" is an NTIA advisory article? What legislation has passed? Looks to me like the regulations are already here in the form of the laws I mentioned earlier and this is a just typical Register-style trolling to get ad impressions.
Street View blurs faces and license plates.
Google maps is also good at respecting the privacy of retired military officers!
What I don't understand is why people can't figure this out and stop giving him exposure. It's the same situation with that other guy that I refuse to name, you know, the anti-video game industry guy. The attention they receive only encourages them to do it again, and again, ad nauseam.
Please don't tell me that the attention he receives from article such as this on sites like
Last Saturday we had our annual company Christmas party. It was a lot of fun as usual but it featured one special surprise. It turns out that several people had been secretly working late nights and into the wee hours of the morning preparing a special video for those at the party. They created a short teaser for Duke Nukem Forever.
After seeing the teaser we thought it was something we should share with all of you and while it's just a teaser, rest assured more is coming.
Tomorrow, Wednesday the 19th, around noon CST, we will release the first teaser trailer from Duke Nukem Forever. To tide you over until then, there has been a screen shot taken from the teaser and posted in our forums. Check it out here (http://forums.3drealms.com/vb/showthread.php?t=29639).
Thank you for being fans of the game and for your continued patience.
We'd like to thank the people on the team that worked so hard to create this teaser and the friends of 3DR that helped create it (Jeremy Soule and Julian Soule, Frank Bry, Jason Evigan and of course, Jon St. John).

There are only two types of games in this world: interactive and non-interactive. When is gaming going to advance enough so that it includes games that don't fall under the previous two categories? Obviously, it is difficult to include something outside the boundaries of "been done before," when the percetpion of the industry is so broad.
To some people the gaming industry is changing rapidly. A new weapon, more interesting character development, or increased realism may seem exciting and new to some people. It is all a matter of opinion.
There are only 10 types of people in this world: those who understand binary and those who don't.
But who knows...
* My sincere apologies to anyone that hadn't realized this; that wasn't meant to be a spoiler -- and it's really not, when you realize that of all the zillions of Jedi who existed before the rise of the empire, only Darth Vader, Yoda and Obi-Wan survived...
