I would have to disagree. It is great that there is a chance to vote the candidate out, BUT it is in the next election cycle. The damage is already done by that time. Any candidate that promises to repeal those laws will come in and get comfy till the next election cycle. There is no need to take any bribes, because adding to this problem are the mindless voters who can't vote out the rubber stamp candidates and you got the policy mess we are in now.

This is great news because for the last few years the media has done their best to demonize torrents and related activity as nothing more than a pirates' leisure time activity. There are truly legitimate uses for torrents and it is great to see that there are good folks working to keep such sites active.

hypnosec writes "Foxconn is supposedly looking to enhance its workforce in the Chinese city of Zhengzhou and despite the less-than-satisfactory working conditions in the company, thousands of aspirants are lining up for jobs in its factories. Not caring about the harsh working conditions at Foxconn, thousands of people congregated outside a labor office in Zhengzhou, the largest city of Henan province in North central China, impatiently waiting for a chance to work at Foxconn. Foxconn, which is engaged in assembling iPhones and iPads for Apple, is planning to hire an additional 100000 employees as it is aiming at augmenting its iPhone production."

I couldn't agree with you more. While we are at it, I want a personalized climate engineering. I am always +/- 1.23 degrees F colder / warmer than the guy sitting next to me.

+ - Oracle Says Google Throws Its Users Under The Bus-> 3

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The heat is on between Oracle and Google in their patent and copyright lawsuit. Oracle's lawyers just told the court that 'Google now wants to throw its licensees and users under the bus' by refusing to be liable for every Android-based device out there. It's also about the burden of proof. Oracle has produced almost 400 pages of claim charts and other material to prove infringements based on the public codebase, but Google wants to see this for individual devices. Groklaw thinks Oracle 'saw the case as a slam dunk, and Google is not cooperating.' FOSS Patents (Florian Mueller) says Google is at the top of a billion-dollar pyramid, is projected to generate mobile advertising income to the tune of $1.3 billion next year thanks to Android, and should 'assume responsibility' and solve the problem 'for the entire ecosystem' because otherwise Oracle might sue device makers, operators, or even app developers or users."

Images taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter camera reveal that what previously appeared to be a lunar pit in the Marius Hills region is in fact the entrance to a lava tube, with the cave floor visible through a collapsed ceiling, or "skylight"."

In India and other places, they use horns to "warn" people and it is so unbelievably noisy, and people are so used to the horns that it becomes white noise almost. You honk and the person(s) you are issuing the warning to, COMPLETELY ignores you and does whatever the hell they wanted to do in the first place. When I come back to US, it feels like bliss, nothing having to listen to that. Imagine, hundreds of thousands of people just honking all the time. I think this is just a bad law, and hope it does not pass.

Does anyone know if I can play "single player" local to my computer, or is there going to be more of the same Starcraft type DRM where you have be connected to the internet(s) all the time? I was looking forward to Diablo 3 for many years now, and after hearing about the Starcraft DRM, I am very very very disappointed that I will not support this game.

Just because you don't understand something doesn't make it mumbo jumbo. People of old were a lot smarter than the many morons of today. There is belief that "unknown powers" gave the arc the magical powers it possessed, and science has yet to understand many things around us that have been used in homeopathy for ages, like turmeric, ginger, and garlic. Don't mock it, till you can say "I know everything about everything, and I know that is absolute rubbish"
