Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
This is the point that hasn't sunken into the people who use Google services. You are not the customer.
The advertisers are the customer and you are the product.
Food aid is a poisonous gift. You might feed a bunch of people, but it undercuts the livelihoods of local farmers, and just creates dependency on handouts. Disaster relief is one thing, but without a transition plan towards self sufficiency it is almost worse than nothing.
I saw a documentary about the aid industry in Haiti, and it was quite disgusting. Local builders and plumbers living in tattered tents without proper sanitation, just living on hand me downs from aid agencies whose interest was already focusing on the next disaster. Real aid would help the locals help themselves, not pay for aid industry fat salaries and materials manufactured in the donor countries.
They know, if "they" are LG and your TV is connected to the Internet.
What has Sweden to with the topic in hand?
I don't think people will start fixing things until they've first been made aware of the state of affairs. We need voices like this to make people aware. Call it whining if you like.
Website operators are responsible for moderating user content as you say. If someone posts libelous comments the owner must remove it.
There's no requirement to use real names or for operators to record them, however, which means there are plenty of nasty Slashdot-like cesspools. The trash talk is just between forum names, not real ones.
Could it be they plan to offer a more expensive service?
What puzzles me is how is the NDA supposed to threaten other downloaders. They ought to take lessons from a despot on how to make an example, usually public hangings are public for a reason. The NDA is clearly there to keep a lid on their activities, because drawing the spotlight is bad for them.
You're right. Linguistically Finnish is totally unrelated, for example Swedish and Russian are closer to each other than Finnish is to either of them. However, Finland shares the same mix of politics, economics, culture and religion with other Nordic countries, which is distinct from other parts of Europe and the world.
I just wish they'd just get over it and go back home instead of trying to relive it over and over again.
Lessons of WWII? Europeans learned there there is no "ism" worth fighting over. The Yanks learned that sending their kids abroad to kill foreigners over the bogeyman du jour is good and something to be proud of. Strange how those bogeymen keep appearing. "Serving." "Protecting our freedom". Yeah right, those Iraqis were threatening US freedoms real bad, worth killing 100 000 civilians over.
Proud for what, being gullible? You weren't repelling an invasion, just serving narrow interests.
With a first past the post electoral system (one representative per constituency) you'll never get a powerful third party.
Iraq did not start a war against the USA. The US invaded Iraq on false pretenses, without a declaration of war. It broke international laws in doing so, and when a western democracy blew the whistle on it we got Freedom Fries. Hamburgers ought to be called gulliburgers in the rest of the world.
"Most westernized democracies" - stop deluding yourself. It's basically the USA, the UK and Canada.
