Have you read the privacy policies of any modern web site? Almost all say "we do not pay any attention at all to any 'do not track' flags, cookies, etc."

Who the f*** wants to drink pureed vegans?
If I'm going to get my liquid cannibal on, I want the taste of real hamburger-fed 'muricans!
You did NOT just introduce that to the Internet.
>> Rule 34
Oh yeah...I guess it's the reason we have Internet in the first place.
>> tape wrapped around its head that read "San Francisco or bust."
Option 2. Mission accomplished, right?
It's kind of funny this lands on a Friday in the middle of summer when it looks like most of the rest of the office is off.
I have a feeling that attorneys will be able to legislate this threat away long before it reaches them.
>> I can go to the bar by myself and get hammered, and not worry about driving home.
And yet people on SlashDot wonder why many of us would still want our OWN cars in the age of automated driving.
>> internet is not in a country, it is it's own country
Hmmm...I guess you CAN buy weed before 8am.
>> I am failing to see how this relates
Microsoft and the EU clashed on a large number of topics related to whether or not Microsoft had a PC monopoly (before Apple's revival) and whether Microsoft used its monopoly position to unfairly eliminate competition. One of the major results of this struggle was Microsoft having to offer consumers a choice of browser (i.e. not just IE), a result that contributed to Google's rise because Google was the default search engine on most other browsers.
Today the EU and Google are clashing on a large number of topics related to whether or not Google...
>> While (X) may be the law in (place), it is not the law globally (therefore pound sand)
Wow. And techies thought Microsoft was arrogant when dealing with Europe in the 2000s.
More to the point: how do I get to be a multinational corporation so I can tell local authorities to fuck off too?

Let's see...driving around in awesome cars and smacking around random people. Isn't that already called "Grand Theft Auto?"
>> How exactly is it a scam? It didn't lie to you. It didn't say it was broken, out of paper, etc. It just said "please see register for receipt".
Because there's no "fuck off, just print my fucking receipt" button, and the machine certainly advertises its ability to print receipts without going into TFS.
Now that we all have phones for directions, the only reason anyone should ever visit the store is to use the free restroom. For extra convenience-store stink-eye, I frequently drive through one on my way to work, buy NOTHING, and dump whatever garbage I'm carrying (usually stuff purchased elsewhere) in their trash cans.
>> all today's valuables are in servers in the cloud
Hmmm...I'd check to see what's actually on your "local" cell phone then.
>> if you're able to access the communication wiring, you probably can just reach in and grab the strike wiring too and supply 24v to it to open the door
3x 9V batteries in series? Check.
However, it's still more work than just tailgating someone with your arms full of lunch and a laptop...
>> giant database...never be hacked
"Data warehouses" and "big data" have all these problems. I remember a big data security talk where the conclusion was basically "well there's a handful of half-baked solutions for the biggest platforms, but no one actually uses them."
In my corporate experience, data warehouse and big data projects happen when an executive gets annoyed with the slow progress of IT and basically dumps out the contents of a few databases into an almost-impossible-to-secure bowl of soup. As a resident security guru I frequently developed a blind spot for these executive disasters: reporting or trying to audit them usually led to career pain.
