Let's see this list of spyware. Will Google kick them out of the Android store? Will the FBI prosecute the developers for "exceeding authorized access" under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act? If not, why not?
When it's time for an asteroid mission, it will probably be robotic.
It's amazing how much money NASA can spend not going into space.
It's one of those "flexible funding" Indiegogo projects, where they get to keep the money even if they don't get enough money to make anything. Great scam; just come up with some popular idea, overprice the project, and keep the money.
Well, these prosthetics are kinda available for everyone too. You could even gain an upper leg over him (bad pun, ok), by getting two of those...
Well, when you got 3rd grade politicians, don't expect 1st grade rulings...
Well, the 10 commandments aren't that far away from "universal", timeless principles and rules as well. Don't lie. Don't steal. Don't kill. Somehow I don't think that will ever go out of fashion in a civilized world. There are a few dated ones, and that's actually where the constitution and most other "normal" (as compared to divine) laws have a huge advantage: They can be adapted to reality.
The problem is that the ones that could adapt them are too adept at circumventing them, and they sure as HELL won't do anything to plug the loopholes they themselves are abusing.
Well, if I elect them, it makes it kinda immoral to shoot them...
Actually, to be blunt, it is less "truly" fascist and resembles closer the German Nazism, complete with the ideal of the superiority of the own race, its right to rule over the lands it claims to "always have been" part of their "home land", the need for "Lebensraum", which has to be taken from others, preferably a group of people you can use as a scapegoat for all the ill that befalls your country and its people, a full blown paranoia over the (perceived or real) threat its neighbors present that can best be countered by preemptive strikes, along with pushing the "enemy people" in the own country in sub-prime areas
Personally, I consider it incredibly sad that of all the people on the planet, of all the countries and governments on this planet... Hell, if there was ONE people, one government, one country that should KNOW for a fact that the whole crap doesn't work out and that it can only lead to destruction...
If you want more servers like that, Wierd Stuff Warehouse in Sunnyvale, CA, has the same HP series G Xeon servers for $189. (2 3GHz quad-core Xeons per server! Hard drives are extra, but cheap.) Wierd Stuff has huge supplies of previous-generation data center equipment.
It's amazing how cheap computer hardware is now.
Reality check: space travel with chemical fuels just barely works. It takes huge rockets to launch dinky payloads, and that hasn't improved in 45 years. Satellites and probes are useful. Man in space has just been a boondoggle.
If fusion ever works, this may change, but with chemical rockets, it's not getting much better.
Right, that was when AdBlock sold out to Google.
The "fun" part is that being anti-Israel currently is less antisemitic than it is antifascist...
How about baidu? I mean, I at least as long as I don't plan to search for Tiananmen Square or Tibet it should give me more accurate results...
If you mean that it will take another generation 'til people don't believe readily what they read simply 'cause someone wrote it, then I agree.
But until people realize that 99% of what they read on the internet is bullshit, we should maybe find a way to keep people from having their lives ruined by slander.
