/. community considers this as flamebait, then all is lost.
"Don't be evil." The road to hell is paved with good intentions. This idea of G-Town is the start of yet another indentured servitude scheme to eke out as much productivity as possible while subtly applying pressure that will enslave Google-ites both mentally, physically, and financially. American history is replete with examples and is fundamentally anathema to the concept of Liberty. Just like modern American economic enslavement. How are the payments of that McMansion and Hummer coming along?
This is outrageous. It does not require 30 years on the bench to comprehend the pure absurdity of this. People who commit real crimes such as manslaughter, murder, rape serve less time. The schemers on wall street who crashed our economy have caused incredible misery for millions of people, yet they walk free.
"How long before Kindle traffic is locked down?" Naturally, reporting it really helped the Chinese people. Fair and balanced. Alive but in a prison camp.
It's like a speak-easy from the era of prohibition for file sharing. What could possibly go wrong? Can anyone say entrapment?
That's the same thing I've argued for years. You don't take a shit, you give it.
People would be foolish to fail to invest in upstarts that produce the equipment and software. This is going to be a big deal in the tech industry.
If there is one thing the bulk of Americans rally about, it is maintaining and growing our military strength. The military attempting to move away from fossil fuels is the most positive development to ever occur in the so called "alternative energy movement", which should never have been trivialized. Petroleum distillation is simply not viable over the long haul.
The statistics are averaged across cultures they sampled. It's about as meaningful as the tendency of storks to build their nests in chimneys.
One baby step closer to Skynet. Long live our new immortal overlords.
One can think of the modern era of desktop security akin to being a police state. So much has "gone down" that the conventional system of trust between client and server has been broken. Clients acting like servers spreading "problems" in the network degrading performance, taking down clients and servers is no way to run affairs. In a more civil situation, then we need only worry about the borders, everyone is happy, and rainbows shoot out of our butts.
Is it safe to assume James Cameron and the crew will be placed on the infamous dead pool? I'll put $1000 bucks on it.
It's nonsense. The probability of mechanical failure is outrageous, given the environmental conditions, and nature of mechanical devices. If it were biological in basis, that I can see. If anything it's a good exercise in engineering. Go Stimulus!
Even if you put lipstick on it, it's still a pig.
If Colbert did this, it would be an amazing speech. I would love to be there for it. If you haven't seen it yet, see his speech he gave to and about George Bush. It is on YouTube.
