Technology

+ - Ask Slashdot: Is it morally/ethically wrong to ask people to "like" a product? 1

Submitted by ourlovecanlastforeve
ourlovecanlastforeve (795111) writes "Many of the tech blogs I read will sometimes feature a sweepstakes where you can win an iPad, an Android tablet or some other toy or gadget by "liking" them on Facebook or otherwise promoting them in a way that you normally would not do if you weren't trying to win something. Is it morally or ethically wrong for those people to do so? If you're clicking a button that indicates you like something but you really don't care for it, are you lying for personal gain? If so, is the company behind the sweepstakes asking you to lie to promote their product?"

+ - Ask Slashdot: When Will Our (US) Own Needs be More Important than Afghanistan's?->

Submitted by
ourlovecanlastforeve
ourlovecanlastforeve writes "AP reports that NATO's big players have settled on a leisurely date of 2014 to stop killing our children, "affirming they will close the largely stalemated conflict at the end of 2014 but keep their troops fighting and dying there for two more years in the meantime." So my question is, at what point does it become important to stop throwing human lives and trillions of dollars at Afghanistan's problems when we can't afford to pay our own bills? Where is the altruism in this proceeding; why are we really wasting all these resources, when there are plenty of other nations that would be grateful for our aide that we could easily throw just as much money we don't have at?"

Apple

+ - Judges Order Apple to Talk to Competitors Instead of Suing Them Out of Business->

Submitted by
ourlovecanlastforeve
ourlovecanlastforeve writes "US judges have clearly had enough of Apple trying to build their market share by throwing phalanxes of lawyers and patent claims at competitors who might have a product that would compete and reduce their market share. After two HTC launches were delayed and and before Apple is to meet with Samsung executives Magistrate Judge Sherry R. Fallon tells Apple to sit down and talk it out with competitor Samsung instead of dragging them into yet another court battle."
