Depends what exactly Bloomberg and Case were supporting (I don't know the real stories here). If they were trying to repeal the 2nd amendment entirely, then yes I would support them (the employees). If they were trying to take 2nd amendment rights away from a specific class of people (other than the mentally ill and ex-cons), then yes I would support them (the employees). If they were just supporting background checks and/or banning ridiculous weapons and cartridges, then no. It's moot point anyways, as no one at Bloomberg or AOL publically called for them to step down.

They're *asking* him to step down, not *forcing* him to step down. Employees of Bloomberg or AOL could have asked Michael Bloomberg or Steve Case to step down if they wished to. They didn't and it likely wouldn't have made a difference if they had tried.

Also bare in mind, Mozilla Corp is wholly owned to Mozilla Foundation (a non-profit). The goals for Mozilla Corp are whatever Mozilla Foundation wants. If Mozilla decides they don't want this guy to be their CEO, that's their perogative. Bloomberg and AOL are/were public-traded for-profit corporations. Their goals are/were to make as much money as possible for their shareholders. If their shareholders wanted to get rid of Bloomberg or Case based on politics rather than profits, it's their perogative as well.

Nothing in the your quote contradicts what I said. I've used DOSBox to play old games. There is a setting to adjust the speed of the emulator.

In fact I just took a look at one of the config files, the setting is called "cycles" and it is in the "cpu" section of the config.

From TFA:

The data preserved beyond five years cannot be accessed by NSA intelligence analysts for any purpose, and can only be accessed by technical personnel for ensuring continued compliance with the government's preservation obligations, Judge Walton wrote in his revised order.

So no, they can't search it, at least not without running afoul of the FISA court's order (not that that has stopped them before).

Later on...guess what? Microsoft decided to allow DX11 to run as well:

Wrong... the update you linked only installs the latest updates to DX9.0c when installed on XP. It does not add DX10 or DX11 to XP. When installed on Vista or 7 it includes DX10 and DX11.

On the other hand, Android has problems with "signed code". Yes. That's right. Android has problems with it's "app store". This isn't your grandfather's Windows style malware.

Read TFA:

"Android accounted for 97% of all mobile malware in 2013, but only 0.1% of those were on Google Play"
