Comment Re:Terrorism! (Score 4, Informative) 158

Funny how these "Terrorist tracking programs" fail to track the US government, the Saudi government and a bunch of other western governments when these happily finance terrorism. But god forbid you try to rent a US movie with a foreign credit card to watch on Netflix or Amazon Prime, you terrorist you.

whether one agrees with him/her or not, who the hell marked this as a troll ?

There is a great deal of evidence that the US and SA funded terrorists.

I thought Slashdot was here to encourage exchange of opinions, even if unpopular with people living in the US or Saudia Arabia...

According to wikipedia: fraud is deliberate deception to secure unfair or unlawful gain

In the article, it says " under scrutiny for alleged data manipulation". In addition, since the article states that "these papers have been used politically" (the potential gain), it sounds like they they are investigating potential fraud to me.

I live in Germany. If the original poster had said, Steetview sucks in Germany or the pics are old, I would be the first to agree. But he said no Streetview which really is wrong.

And I totally agree with the hypocrisy that you point out.

The funniest thing you notice here. Tough German data protection, and hypocrisy, you say?

Custom license plates are limited to two letters and 4 numbers after the countyor city abbreviation. So what do most custom plates say? The driver's intials and birth year.

Then they drive around advertising their birth year and initials.That is schizophrenic.

Comment Re:eGolf is agreat car (Score 1) 313

I have personally driven from NY, NY to San Francisco (when I finished university and went to my first job and took all my stuff with me). According to Google Maps, this is a 44 hour drive. I took 4 days to do it, allowing myself some sleep at night (a safe and normal thing when driving such distances).

If the infrastructure for EV were there (what the article is encouraging) you would recharge at night so why on earth would you need to drive there on a single charge? Diesel cars can't do this either.

* It's yet another flash bug,

It is not just Flash. If you read the article more carefully, you would have seen this (from the article):

We use Flash OLE object as an example since Flash (zero-day) exploits are easy to obtain by attackers, but please note that there are other OLE objects may be abused by attacker, as not only Flash but also a number of other OLE objects can be loaded in Outlook.
