Read the article. This software was "expressly designed for use by stalkers and domestic abusers". Apple and Microsoft have not expressly designed anything for those purposes.

Re read the article. You are quoting the US DOJ statement, not what the company or persons in question have said. If you go to the cached version of the stealthgenie website (since the real one is gone) that is not the case. They were marketing it to employers and parents of teens.

Regardless of your opinion on that matter, the statement you quoted appears to be a falsification.

No one is saying that. We are saying that there is commericial software that is basicly an invitation for abuse, that for a couple bucks lets anyone play NSA, law enforcement at their most depraved and stalk, harrass and intimidate people by hi-jacking their devices. somehow its about feminism. are you fucking daft?

Next we should go after Apple and Microsoft. It's well established that 98.28% of all electronic stalkers, harassers, and domestic abusers used either Windows or osx to do it.

What the fuck is wrong with the world that the seller of a tool can be arrested because some customer chooses to use it for nefarious purposes. I sure hope people don't start using cars to commit crimes because I like having a car. Oh wait...

It means tracking translation. The Gear VR tracks your head's rotation but not translation which triggers a reflex in your brain that causes nausea.

Basically the brain knows that your head moved a certain way and what your eyes see doesn't match that. In turn, your brain decides that the only explanation is that you've been poisoned and makes you want to hurl as a defense mechanism.

Maybe not such a bad thing. A lot of gamers drink Monster, which is similar to poison - at least in flavor.

I don't live him.

He means, we all aspire to live as if we're Putin, who aspires to live like he was Chuck Norris.

If we were directly exposed to trying to live like Chuck Norris we would die from infinitely trying to roundhouse kick ourselves in the head for trying to live the Chuck Norris. Consequently we "does not live the guy" because Putin saves us from not being Chuck Norris as he is the only man manly enough to survive his own roundhouse kick to the head.

That brings about an interesting problem. What happens if chuck norris tries to roundhouse kick himself in the face? On the one hand, chuck norris does not miss. On the other hand, chuck norris does not let anyone kick him in the face. I think it may create a big bang.

Apparently they see that disposing of food in trash bins instead of compost is a waste. I don't see the problem with the headline.

If you read TFA, the law seems to be about getting people to put stuff in the right bin. TFS makes it sound like the law is about waste. TFS seems and the headline seem to be deliberately misleading

Here's a quote from TFA:

“The point isn’t to raise revenue,” he said. “We care more about reminding people to separate their materials.”

Statements like these are mindboggling.... "Because they are no longer reporting to Wall Street, they can be more competitive." Your share holders want you to maximize profits and growth, this rarely results in wanting you to be less competitive...

Short term only, by and large. Small recently listed symbols excepting. Dell is making a gamble on something that used to be a staple in computers, and still is in autos. Develop for the high end, trickle down to the low end.

I really hope it works out for him. Maybe someday "Dude, you're getting a dell!" won't be an insult hurled from one teenager to another.

That's an interesting thought process... "some warming is natural" means "no warming is artificial."

You're right of course, it's terribly flawed logic. Just as flawed as the logic in "The greenhouse effect is demonstrable in a test tube, therefore it is the primary factor directly controlling the temperature of Earth."

Real scientists don't make such simplistic and unjustified steps in their logic. Unfortunately, because real scientists remain silent when they don't have verifiable mathematics and experiment to back a theory, we only get to hear the charlatans for whom contributory data is equivalent to understanding the whole thing.

Obviously the conundrum is that if you wait to do anything until you have such proof it may be far too late to do anything about the problem. Death for everyone. On the other hand, if you take early action and there was no justification then you wasted some money. Money spent in some "green" sector vs some other one.

The "conservative" choice is clearly to treat global warming as a legitimate threat.
