Comment: Representative Republic (Score 3, Insightful) 1277

We are a representative republic which means that we elect representatives to make decisions on our behalf. A true democracy would have the populous vote on every decision the government makes which is far beyond manageable. I don't think Utah is doing this because of the word "democrat" or the word "republican" but instead to teach our children a better understanding of how our government is truly configured. Take the partisanship out of it and it's an accurate and important detail.

Comment: we have the same policy at work (Score 5, Informative) 446

We have the same policy and will only allow smart phones to connect to exchange when they have the remote wipe capability. It's to protect the company's interests should a phone be lost or stolen. When the users sign up for ActiveSync they have to "read" the terms and conditions where it states that it may be remotely wiped. I don't think most people read it but when you think about the type of proprietary (and often confidential) data your email inbox has, you have to understand why the company does it.

Comment: Did you play final fantasy x2? (Score 3, Insightful) 73

by queen of everything (#14608786) Attached to: Square-Enix Sees Profits Sink

I haven't bought a square game since Final Fantasy X2, so I have contributed to their decline I guess. But did you play it? I have played Final Fantasy games for as long as I can remember and I loved FFX. FFX2 was SO lame! Dance fighting with different outfits? I'm a girl and I don't even think that is fun. Hopefully their newer games are better, I haven't gotten into an RPG in a while (I tend to play them a little too much once I start) so I don't know. But if any of them are like FFX2, then I understand why they aren't making as much money!

Nobody's gonna believe that computers are intelligent until they start coming in late and lying about it.
