Comment Re:Complete bullshit (Score 3, Insightful) 264

The People really don't want one either. People don't really want to know what is being done in their name by politicians, or else they would be pissed off. Plausible deniability. It is how many Germans ignored the Nazis.

To know, would require a person of any amount of conscience to act.

Racist Xenophobic conversations would be something I would engage in, not because I was either. It is more interesting to troll the stupid idiots spewing crap, than it is listening to conversations about LeBron or Kardashians.

I could have a shit ton of fun with that.

The CM Micromax Deal was dreadfully short sighted. While they gained Micromax, they pissed off a whole bunch of people. I would be on ColorOS if it weren't for a missing single feature I use regularly, single button screenshot. If they add that, I'll be off CM for good.

You're absolutely not getting the point.

Hey everyone, I have a BANK ACCOUNT - No discretion needed.

Hey everyone, I have an ASHLEY MADISON ACCOUNT - discretion needed.

It isn't the bank cards, those can be canceled, it isn't the other details, it is the fact that you're on a website looking to cheat or find cheaters. It says a lot about your morals. We don't have to impose our morals on anyone. I don't trust people searching for cheating lovers.

My take on things, just about everywhere it happens, the "War on _________" creates more of the __________

War on Poverty creates more poor people.
War on Drugs creates more drugs
War on Islamists wackos creates more Islamic Wackos

So, why does it surprise people that we create the very thing we wish to avoid?

This should be the default action, not pulled over. If the car is autonomous, the passengers need to feel safe, even when being apprehended. They can pull into a sealed garage with all sort of soft weapons used to disable the humans who don't want to comply.

Sgt. Dave Burke said, "We don't just buy stuff from Amazon as you suggested.

But you should. Looking at the data provided by one of the largest consumers of hard drives, there is little or no difference between Consumer drives and Enterprise drives. The only thing you get with Enterprise is higher prices, used to offset warranty replacements. Replace your drives every 36 Months.
