Embedded fucking videos??? With autoplay??? FUCK YOU Slashdot! My how far you have fallen. News for nerds my ass.
'Yes, we have invented a way to unboil a hen egg,
Let me know when they can unboil a rooster egg. Now that will be something.
Yep. Dish is surely "too big to fail". Large corporations simply cannot be effectively punished. They fund enough political campaigns that legislators will have a definite interest in making sure no truly harmful penalty is ever inflicted on a big company.
With insurance panda?
I see somebody feels professionally threatened...
I wonder how many people who initially bought into the tablet hype realized it really sucks to type a paper on an iPad and switched back to a PC?
"I foresee a new directive in a lot of IT policies regarding laptops and travel and never using wifi on the plane"
"not that the C-levels will pay attention"
For this exact reason.
Here in America, the government must have the consent of the governed, and the governed have spoken against this type of intrusive overbearing law enforcement for profit. Take your authoritarian bullshit to China where it belongs.
One of them would be the Borg...
The Borg (sounds Swedish) didn't see themselves as evil or believe that their mission was unjust. They wanted to add other civilizations to their own, making both sides better. The Borg did not have the problems most civilizations have such as crime, starvation, jealousy, etc. Who wouldn't want that?

Any position can change depending on the perspective. People... or cyborgs... don't see themselves as evil They are doing what they think is best, twisted as it may be.
Because that is all that matters right? 'Merica. And really only the East Coast of 'Merica.
Because that was the claim of various alarmist predictions about anthropogenic climate change made after Katrina. If they've made predictions about Asia, I hadn't heard them.
(For those keeping score, since 2005, the year of Katrina, the number of major hurricanes hitting the US mainland stands at zero. No doubt it will go up again at some point, and anthropogenic climate change will be blamed).
I think you are missing the point. Global Warming is the reason we have not been seeing as many hurricanes.
If it rains, it's global warming. If it doesn't rain, it's severe global warming.
These are the type of companies that buy BMC products. Bloated and expensive must mean it's better, right?
Why on earth are you traveling with HIPAA regulated data on your laptop? Is that truly necessary?
Only in America can you continue a lawsuit without a plantiff.
Can we just cut France off from the internet already? Let them go back to the 1800s, a century they were never comfortable moving past.
