I'm a huge fan of market competition, which is why I can't wait for a capable third manufacturer to compete against the big two.
Even if Lamer thought that was a de facto no-go, he could've just reported the details on some tech news site like...oh I dunno...TechDirt?
No, it's even simpler than that. All those strands of "DNA" are actually the myriad blessed semolina spawn of HNA the FSM (Peas Be Upon Him). He is not wrapped around us...He is within us, to help mice (and people) learn and advance from their dark and primitive past!
We are all children of the glorious FSM!
...and that brand name...in cursive writing. Pimp-worthy.
From the bacteria, or the advertisements?
I was thinking of shooting Sol with them, but I fear we'd fuck up somewhere and it'll phoenix out of the star all ISON-like, if the rocket doesn't blow up en launchpad first.
Oh I'm sorry, did their license break your pilfering concentration?

I've seen many technologies with chilling effects, but this goes way too far.
Meh. They were the ones who reported the CIA's deal with at&t to get call records for $millions a year, so either the NYT isn't (fully) in bed with them or they were tacitly warning at&t to cough up this year's catch Or Else(tm).
i.e.: Ask yourself why you want to block all Google hosts and open your mind to a new solution to that same problem. One that while less evident may well be more feasible.
I'm increasingly trying to find reasons not to block. Their G+ tracker icons and toolbar are now all over the place (even saw the toolbar on Liveleak, of all places, at one point). They've extended their Real Name harassment to anyone who logs on to GMail. (They've done it only once for me, for now, as opposed to the every-reload rain of creepy that sent me flying from YouTube, but a day or so before that incident I also had to unblock plus.google.com to even log in. My account was apparently not "upgraded" by that, but still...at least buy me dinner first.)
"Pile of shit"? Not quite, but they're aiming for it and have already reached "damage to the internet".
As bunches have already said here, the real issue is not whether the US prosecutes Assange, but whether the US (or any of its territories or non-annexed lackeys) punishes Assange with (or far more likely without) a Speedy And Public Trial.
Also, given that the US clearly has no respect for privacy or whistleblower protection, that statement by DoJ sounds less like a reassurance and much more like a less-than-implicit threat to other journalists. "What happened to Assange could happen to any of you TrueCrypting notepad-hugging bastards...report on Kimye like the good serfs you are and don't be that guy."
Expecting "reasonable" from Marissa Mayer's Yahoo is like expecting "class 1 laser emission" from Marisa Kirisame's Master Spark.
But it will save me hundreds on the car insurance rates that they'll (lo)jack up when this gets introduced!
The CIA in particular...with what they've thrown at at&t(R) and Karzai, they never seem to be bankrupt.
...or at least wouldn't have vaguely bragged about it on LinkedIn.
LinkedIn, ffs...those guys would spam their moms' email if they could convince investors that it would increase their market cap. Don't trust them to hide your shadowy marketplaces either.
