Comment Re:Jobs: Apple wont create an iPhone with big scre (Score 1) 337

I wish I had a moderate point left to rate you up.

All these haters hating on Apple and saying how Apple SHOULD do it, have so much experience running the most valuable company in the world.

Maybe, Apple does what people want and are willing to pay for instead of what a few geeks that hang out on /. want.

Comment Rights (Score 3, Interesting) 188

Unless you believe in God given rights, every right is simply something the government guarantees to you.

Society over time decides what it feels everyone should be entitled to - and entitled is not a four letter word.

We started with Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Since then we added a few, everyone can vote, everyone can work, speech, etc.

As society changes more things become "rights" - ie. things we as a society feel all of us would benefit by having - like education, healthcare, living wage.

The internet is widely integrated into all walks of life in all industrialized nations. I won't list the benefits it brings, since Anonymous Cowards want to prove that dial up is "good enough" and you can live without it even.

The point is, rights are not about things you can't live without, rights are about those things we as a society believe everyone should have.

I don't understand, they were pretty upfront with what they had and what they want to try to do. Seems to me that is kind of the point of Crowd Funding, when you can't get real investors.

Seriously, everyone seems to want guarantees about everything - lighten up people, if you want to have a guaranteed return by Treasury Bonds...

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
