Amazon: Big on Net Neutrality, not so much on Book Neutrality.
Because I'm homeless.
The chief continued... "Because kids are smart they might suspect that their own PC is keylogged, and use another computer in the house to avoid being supervised properly. To avoid this I suggest installing keyloggers in all computers in the household. Now, parents I know are very busy and it is hard to keep up with all this tech, so to help you be a better parent, the department has setup a website where you can register your keylogger and upload its data to our servers, where department specialists will look for any red flags that need to be brought to your attention concerning your child's online activities. Once this program is more widely adopted by your child's friend's families, we will all be able to keep all our children safe online, no matter which computer they use."
Maybe the studios are tiring of unimaginative attempts to fleece some money out of them for yet another forgettable remake of another forgotten film. I know I am.
Can anyone think of a reason to remake Barbarella or Heavy Metal that is more engaging and compelling than any reasons for remaking The Man Who Fell To Earth or The Quiet Earth or RoboCop? Oh wait, an R-rated remake of that one is already in the works. Guess the article was mistaken.
The government doesn't have to default on the bonds - at any time the congress can just change the rules. There is no "contract" here, that you'll be paid back. There is only a law that can be replaced by another law at any time.
What are you going on about? Your wireless carrier, cable company, internet service, gaming service, mail service, news service, bank, credit card and so many others change terms unilaterally all the time. Private contracts like this seem useless as a means of guaranteeing future performance. Laws, by comparison, are practically eternal.
All future arrangements between people are contingent on those people complying with the arrangements at that future date. Laws are another step or two up the ladder of enforceability compared to private contracts.
Besides, you need laws to permit the enforcing of contracts.
Are you really against simplifying the taxes so that they are so simple and transparent that politicians could no longer play favorites with their soup du jour special interests?
How would a simpler tax code prevent corruption? Why not enforce the laws against official corruption that we already have or strengthen them? That makes more sense than changing the tax code.
Most politicians' special interests are the constituents in their districts. They got elected because they promised to play favorites in Congress with their own district's interests. Why would you not want Congresspersons to represent their constituents? Who would you prefer they represent instead?
Why do you imagine he hasn't educated himself? Because he disagrees with you? LOL
Do you believe it is a persuasive argument in favor of the Fair Tax to deride anyone who disagrees with your view of it as uneducated, with no further explanation?
Hiding the filename extension is not a virus vector. Having the OS assume a file is just the type that the name says it is, is the vector whether the extension is hidden or not. Granting execute permissions based on its name rather than its permissions, is a virus vector. Assuming a jpg file is a image format and passing it unchecked to a thumbnail rendering subsystem is a vector, not hiding the jpg extension.
You can hide file extensions in Linux file managers. MacOS hides file extensions. Files with hidden extension are not going to be a vector for you or for Mac users on account of the hidden extension. They don't work that way.
Because the word "laser" has taken on a broader meaning since it was coined, so that it is used to refer generically to any coherent electromagnetic wave generating device or phenomena. Laser is the Kleenex of physics.
These problems either go away or are greatly diminished with cheap energy, yet cheap energy seems to be one of the things the environmental movement vehemently opposes.
Damnit, you were doing great until this. Oil is the only cheap energy source we have. As you correctly pointed out, a byproduct of extracting energy from oil is the production of CO2, a substance with high stability due to low energy content. So it is difficult to get rid of without applying more energy to it to change its state to something more easily disposable, a task which is counterproductive. So of course, environmentalists are opposed to cheap energy, because there is only one source of it, and it is the source that causes the environmental problems.
Nuclear energy isn't cheap, and if it were, it wouldn't be clean. Cheap nuclear energy would likely be more immediately dangerous to human health and the environment than burning oil is. Also, whatever cheap energy source is discovered or invented in the future had better be very, very clean, because cheap energy will find lots and lots of new ways to be used, and used with abandon, because it's cheap.
Nope, that was Phillip Jose Farmer.
Kirk the Pink.
Kirk: Pink Ranger sounds like Pussy Ranger. How 'bout if I'm Purple Ranger? That sounds good to me. I'll be Purple Ranger.
Luna is the Roman name for the moon goddess. The Greek name is Selene. Thus terms like selenography, selenothermal, selenotectonic are used to refer to processes and studies of the Moon.
How long do you think it will it be before people who have purchased the "unlimited" plan and taken it seriously will receive notices from Verizon saying that their account has been cancelled or disabled due to "excessive" use?
Probably never, that's my guess.
October November December Average

Data Over(MB) 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00
Overage Cost $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00
How many people will actually use an "unlimited" amount of data every month (i.e. - more than the 2GB offered for $5 less on AT&T, for example), if you can't tether?
I have a grandfathered Verizon mobile broadband account with no monthly data limit, and I routinely exceed 15 Gb/mo just listening to Pandora and other internet streaming music services. I listen to these services on my Droid Incredible now, too. I am sure I'd exceed the 2 Gb/mo in the first week of each billing period if that was my cap.
