Am I the only one terrified that if something happens to my one "dedicated device", I'm screwed? The reason I keep my encrypted passwords in the cloud is that the service provides have redundancy. I'm seriously fucked if I lose access to my data store. How could anyone possibly sleep in peace knowing that their entire lives revolve around the safekeeping of one fallible hardware device??
And yet some people I've spoken to would rather trust AT&T than a company like Google when it comes to their choice of Internet Service Provider. I'm always amused by these guys.
"Google is evil! How can you even think of taking Internet service from them? AT&T? Oh sure! Sign me up!"
Apparently they believe that just because Google is an ad company they'll sell your personal information for cash. Well, no they won't because that's not how it works and they'd be pretty stupid to do that since their entire business model is based on trust. And second...well apparently AT&T is straight up selling data for money. Surprise surprise!
Good for you. I happily and willingly give my private information to Google and benefit from their free services. I win. They win. Everyone wins. What's not to like about this?
Yes, I would feel better because you have a choice not to use Facebook.
How did net neutrality get dragged into this?
Yes. You are being rude by pretending to listen to the person about football. If you're not interested, break it off and go elsewhere. If you can't easily break it off, then checking your messages from your boss is just a cop out.
It's ridiculous that you need researchers to tell you that spreading disease became more easy with rail technology or with long distance shipping. I mean, what have they revealed that we didn't already know?
I think robotically constructed slums are an awesome idea! Should be much better than human constructed ones...
It's ridiculous to imply that every product that starts with an "i" belonged to Apple merely because of a couple of products in 2000. The court has given both IGB and Apple equal rights to use "iPhone". If what you said was true, then it would have given Apple exclusive rights. That didn't happen.
In fact, a court agreed with IGB. This is an appeal. And likely there will be yet another.
That...was a deliberate joke on Google's part. The tip off is that in the driving directions list it told you to "swim across the pacific to xyz country"!
The iPhone was envisioned in 2000? This trademark was filed eight years before it was introduced! Unless you're suggesting they were fortune tellers, they had no way of knowing what was going to come out.

Yet your hypothetical golem merely made an assertion without showing a single causative chain of events.
For example "Your Actions Have Taken Money From Those Who Had Little Enough To Begin With" - how?
"In A Myriad Small Ways You Have Hastened The Deaths Of Many." - give one example of these "small ways"
I don't mind how small the examples are. I just want one concrete causative chain of events.
In a way, even I'm indifferent to starving children. But that doesn't make me responsible for their deaths.
You're only detailing an end case scenario. You haven't shown me how shadow banking has actually let to a specific child dying from a preventable disease.
