Oh, those evil republicans? Did you know Hillary's lifetime top 10 on-the-record donors are all investment banks and cable companies? Both parties are thoroughly and equally corrupted by donors. They only differ on unimportant social issues now.
Since she actually holds no office at this moment in time, your point is both moot and frankly insipid.
The FCC wants to regulate internet content like they do TV and radio
Yes. In much the same way as the Voting Rights Act of 1965 sought to regulate who can vote.
Put another way, your attempt to spin this as regulation is transparently dishonest.
Well I love my home state and it's people. We're mostly down-to-earth, and pragmatic. Unfortunately we're really big on grand gestures. And fond of the metaphorical sharp-stick-in-the-eye brand of protesting.
Ok, then how about getting a Mac without iTunes?
You're grasping at straws. That's a really, really bad comparison. Nobody pays Apple to include iTunes in MacOS installs.
Im shocked. You didn't think about iTunes?
Granted, you can use a Mac with out ever opening iTunes and you can just delete it from the applications folder if you so choose and nothing will break.
Whatever faults iTunes may have (and there are surely plenty) I would be mightily annoyed if I had to download iTunes separately on a fresh OS install / new computer.
No, and I don't really care. I don't use their products that much.
So what you're saying is that you have no fucking idea what you're talking about. Got it.
Okay, found it, but it's obnoxiously hidden. Go to the Slashdot FAQ Page and click "Login" in the upper-right-hand corner (even though you're already logged in). Type in your credentials, and login. You'll then go to your account screen where you can actually edit your sig (and a few other things).
I can't find any other way to get there, and that particular path is as obscure as it gets.
I seem to be suffering from the same thing. Can't figure out where to edit my sig.
Too bad that fruit company has among its practice of bundling bloatware along its software users want to install.
If you could be so kind as to elaborate, I would be extremely grateful.
(Which is to say that I think you're completely full of shit and would really like you to back up your allegations).
It's almost like he was more interested in publicity than in actually shipping a product.
I was visiting the USA (California is nice this time of year) last week and I had to sign little pieces of paper with my name to buy things with my credit card. Apparently none of the stores and restaurants have chip and pin terminals. You can't prevent even the most basic fraud if any guy with a card reader can make a copy of your magstripe and clone your card. What's worse, in the restaurant they actually walked off with my card, instead of bringing a wireless terminal to my table for me to enter my PIN.
You good people are about 5 years behind the times. WTF happened?
Welcome to America, where we like to pretend that we're exceptional while being largely behind the rest of the civilized world in almost every area. I think it's because of money in politics myself, but others will perhaps have other theories.
2. They don't solve any problems.
Please explain how "rampant fraud" is not a problem.
I still don't see a need to make my charge card two orders of magnitude more complicated
You will the next time your credit card is compromised.
They want your phone to bypass the Visa/Mastercard duopoly, that adds ~3% to to everything you buy. The problem is that they haven't come up with a good alternative.
Who is "they"?
