By all accounts, the fix is in. The veto threat is a nice little good cop, bad cop show for the cameras.

How many times can you run the payload of Keylogger In The Corner Of The Chip before your customers stop trusting your chips. At least this way they can blame the data loss on the Mission Impossible shit.
Sure, not feasible on a glued-together Macbook, but most business-class laptops have easily removed keyboards attached by a ribbon cable. On something like a Dell Latitude, it's easily a 1 minute job. The keylogger hardware isn't isn't exactly off the shelf, but not out of the question for a state-sponsored attack. Still, you have a point. Any target that's worth attacking with such sophisticated equipment is probably paranoid enough not to be traveling around a foreign country with the digital crown jewels, encrypted HDD or not.
A hardware keylogger inline with the keyboard cable takes care of that. It only means they'll have to break in twice instead of once.
Sometimes, I get the feeling Kucinich is allowed to exist to make leftists look stupid. If you want to feel proud and not embarrassed about supporting a leftist, check out Howard Dean and Bernie Sanders. Must be something in the water up in Vermont.
And again, Germany has a public healthcare system, and they're not going broke. They're the ones bailing out the rest of Europe (so far). The original reference to the Euro debt crisis is a strawman.
Same here. Biked to polling place at lunchtime (80 deg!). Two people in line. Super fast and easy. No competitive races for offices. Ballot props are where the action is.
Sure, in a happy world of rainbows and unicorns where GMO foods with significant market share had real benefits to customers, we could discuss the finer points of GMO in your food, but the seed giants are their own worst enemy. It's a vendor lock-in device used to corner the market on herbicides. If there was ever a market for "good" GMOs, Monsanto killed it.
Regardless of your stance on the health effects of GMOs, if would behoove us to look more closely at the business practices (specifically w.r.t. intellectual property) of the seed giants, i.e. Monsanto: patenting life, monopolizing the seed market, shaking down small farmers with patent infringement suits, and all so they can sell more Roundup, creating a monoculture of herbicides. It's the same corporate playbook we've seen countless times in the tech world.
We had herbicides before Roundup-ready GMOs. It ain't no huge innovation, aside from being a revenue win for Monsanto.
Well obviously... Inconvenient to extract data for evidence in a court of law != impervious to government snooping
deregulate just another word for "shit happens"
/. really needs a sarcasm tag
Kick back to a life of leisure while machines do all the work?
And to further abuse the train metaphor...
the gravy train for the bread and circuses, i.e. the plunder of the rest of the planet, is quickly running out. But really don't mind me, just go back to your TV and cheez doodles. I'm sure that next shiny thing will make you feel all better.
I vote this one. Yeah, I'm a big
