Comment: Just another reason to not use a cell phone (Score 1) 415

My friends give me a hard time about not owning a cell phone, and yes, it's hard to justify, at least until these gems of corporate malfeasance and fraud present themselves. They wont get a dime of my money. Why subject yourself to fraud? Verizon is quickly completing it's corporate arc and circling the toilet bowl. --edfardos

SciFi is circling the corporate toilet bowl by cost cutting. Normally I'd be bummed, but this thread shows an overwhelming amount of good content which is freely available. I think I'm done paying the corporate no-talent-ass-clowns money for a bad signal with worse programming.

To the no-talent-corporate-ass-clowns reading this, you might want to put this year's cost-cutting bonus in the bank, because I'm pretty sure it'll be your last.

All you need is an 8-digit number to "claim" your support agreement! that's it! Just start making up random numbers if you need support for anything, or more importantly lists of customers, their locations, what they have. It's a marketing goldmine! What an epic failure. Does Oracle do business with the government? Thanks but no thanks. --edfardos

Why do we play this economic game and abide by all the free trade rules when our opponents openly cheat and manipulate the market to their own advantage? Simply end free trade with non-free countries. India is obviously in a grey area with widespread corruption, but their people and market forces are somewhat in charge. Communist China? forget it, why even play the game if you know they're going to cheat (manipulate currency, embargo, subsidies, etc)? Yes, the cost of a toaster will go from $10 to $15, but if you don't have a job, you can't even afford the $10 blender.

Since it's legal, what's the cheapest gps transmitter you can make that would attach to a police car. Knowing the location of your law enforcement officers at all times could be a huge public benefit - and now it's totally legal.
Law enforcement tracking - there's an app for that!

It is not well to be thought of as one who meekly submits to insolence and intimidation.
