I schluffed off their subscriptions, only using their "high speed internet". But they know we'll use it to watch your programs that we download for free like little commie criminals, so they want to "cap" us so we don't download too much! "Cap" has a jaunty ring to it, doesn't it. Like a night cap! But its not for lack of trying!
Creators of television programs, I want to give you monies, shinies, ducats, for your hard work. Let me download it, as soon as its aired. Even if you're soulless overlords like NBC, Syfy, etc., get a cut. Here, I'll address them directly:
Soulless overlords, please let me buy reasonably priced shows I want to watch, a la cart. Take a moment whilst you sit upon throne of blood and bone. Raise your hand, not to cause the death shrieks of cancelled shows we like, or spew forth more reality show afterbirth from your gaping, fetid maw; allow me to download and keep, episodes of Game of Thrones, Parks and Recreation. I would make offering. No animal burning, though.
Who knows? You might, even then, squint and raise a claw? Hoof? Mandible? to your countless dead eyes and gaze in wonder at the brilliant light of realization: Where there was once a cancelled Firefly or Farscape, they might yet be reborn in a righteous blaze of countless micro transactions the likes of which even Kickstarter.com hasn't seen.
Ever heard of Vinod Khosla? How about legions of Asian programmers? Oh, no people of *his* color. Yeah, just another conspiracy by The Man to keep the bruthas down.
Seriously, when will this victim mentality shit ever end?
When it stops being advantageous to be white.
The European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) has published a new report (PDF) in which it warns of the possible security threats posed by the smartphone.
ENISA is an agency of the European Union and its new report identifies the top security risks of smartphone use, as well as offering some practical security advice for businesses, consumers and governments.
The ENISA report comes after analyst house Gartner revealed in early November that worldwide mobile phone sales had grown by 35 percent in the third quarter. However that was nothing compared to the 96 percent rise in smartphone sales during the same period, with 80 million smartphones sold in that period alone."
