So... you mean they fine you $10,000 if you catch them watching you?
Of course, if you hear something repeated enough times it starts to sound like the truth, so I decided to try and google some information. This is what I found:
I doesn't look to me like ham radio is dying at all. In fact it looks like it's growing - not as fast as the general US population, but it's not what I'd call dying, not by a long shot.

So they could switch the sugar in their search page with high fructose corn syrup without anyone noticing?
Now that's a scary thought. Is there nothing a lawyer won't do?
Apple's brilliance is in marketing.
Anyone who says this is ignorant of what Apple offers, and ignorant of marketing as well.
I guess it is their brilliant marketing strategy that has kept Mac from having any virus infections.
I guess it is their brilliant marketing strategy that means I never have to reboot my mac, unlike my Windows PC.
I guess it is their brilliant marketing strategy that means I don't have to disable all their eye candy, unlike the brand new Windows 7 machine I have at work, that looks ridiculous until I did.
I guess it is their brilliant marketing strategy that made the first usable smartphone, that every single other phone produce is now copying.
I guess it is their brilliant marketing strategy that produced the first ipod I actually wanted to buy (the iPod Touch), and had superior internet handling than any other device out there. And still does.
I could go on, but you are probably too stupid to concede these points.
If they do, it will be the end of Civilization as we know it.
And just where is the
That's when I realized that people honk their horns for many different reasons - they're irritated, they're trying to flag down a friend, and sometimes it's to indicate danger - but screeching tires almost always mean danger. Maybe the horn would have had nearly the same effect, but there's also the fact that fumbling with the horn would have made swerving more difficult, had I needed to. And it's nice to think that that guy maybe has a clearer memory of the incident than he would have had otherwise, and will remember to be more careful next time.
Hmm. And Sigourney Weaver played the part of Gwen DeMarco in Galaxy Quest - a person who's job it was to repeat what the computer was saying.
Okay, the story here is that it is once again possible to download a trojan merely by visiting a web page. All articles I've found have unfortunately focused on a single exploit of this vulnerability, and thus the articles are nearly irrelevant. The vulnerability is what matters. If it isn't patched soon, you could see millions of infections from more creative exploits in the very near future. If any hacker is able to smuggle the trojan onto even a single major website, he could net millions of victims.
Does anyone know which vulnerability is being used? Or what browser(s) are affected? Is it just Internet Explorer 6? IE7? How long has Microsoft known about this vulnerability, and when will they fix it (or have they already?) I can't find any useful articles on the net — they're all just clones of this one.
The Google maps bit is of course completely irrelevant — the ability to map IP addresses to physical locations has been widely and publicly available since before Google existed. Google has no culpability here, despite the misleading reporting done by the major news agencies."
