Just having an officer present is coercion enough. Perhaps they think they have plausible deniability since they are calling it "optional".
What the **** does a DNA sample have to do with the percentage of drunk drivers?!?!?!?
Anybody stupid enough to give them the sample must be drunk or high.
What is Alice and Bob's secret?
Engelbart lived at a time when bureaucracy and inflexible institutions ruled...
He was alive this year. I don't think that culture changed in the last 6 months.
Perhaps if they put a sensor on the heel they would be able to detect this problem.
If he was able to release a movie with better quality and user experience than the original, would the movie companies owe him money? Removing DRM should be considered doing a public service.
Because they didn't remove the content from all users' libraries, they made a mistake. I mean, Christ, even the headline to the quoted article is "Amazon accidentally removes Disney Christmas special from owners' accounts."
And in the article Amazon responded to the issue explaining it was a mistake and would be fixed:
Amazon blamed the removal on "a temporary issue with some of our catalog data" which it says has been fixed, adding that "customers should never lose access to their Amazon Instant Video purchases."
It's a data error, not a conspiracy. Jeez. This is such a non-issue blown out of proportion by the article author and misrepresented by the submitter. As usual...
The only mistake they made was getting caught. The "temporary issue with some of our catalog data" sounds like a bullshit coverup story since the first time they informed the user that Disney decided to take the movie away.
Correct, but the GGP that did not read the article was ranting about hand sanitizers.
Out of interest, what political groups is 60-minutes known to gain political traction with when it airs stuff like this?
He knows when you are sleeping, he knows when you're awake.
It is quite obvious. Santa works for the NSA.
But said the opinions of her former employer would not guide her work.
Maybe she will use her knowledge from some of the insanity she has seen to actually tackle the current situation of patents, patent-trolling and lawsuits, so that companies can concentrate on true development which benefits all their users, not just the lawyers.
Yes, but my point was that the employees are paying for it, not the company.
I think a better solution is that once you've achieved cruising altitude that passenger can petition for a vote of all passengers to have specific annoying passengers literally thrown off the planes. No parachute, just a good heave. As annoying cell phone users are - shouting in their phones, etc. - seat kickers, loud drunks, crying babies and others deserve some sort of retribution too.
Good plan. This would prevent famously annoying people from ever getting on a plane.
I can't comprehend how a US Senator would consider this worthy of her/his time.
Think of how much time a Senator spends flying between DC and his state and his summer home and to the resort the company bribing him is paying for.
