Comment Re:Too secure for insecure? (Score 1) 279

I like how the argument has devolved here to "If Bush did it, then it's ok". PopeRatzo, is Dubya really your moral compass?

Twenty-two MILLION emails.

Funny, but I don't remember that being an every night issue on the evening news.

And I never, ever look to politicians for a moral compass. I gave that up when Ronald Reagan became president.

Comment Drake? (Score 2) 33

We're talking about Drake here. Show of hands: Who cares if Spotify doesn't include Drake in its promoted tracks? If people want to hear Drake (which in itself is a little unsettling), then they can still listen to his music on Spotify.

"Burying" is not the same as "not promoting". The music is there, but there isn't any incentive for Spotify to promote it.

Plus, it's Drake. I mean, come on...

Comment Re:Sixty Years Ago... (Score 1) 26

we launched capsules into space with brute force, and crashed them back into the ocean to get them back. Now... we do the same thing. Fantastic.

Comment Is this Project Fi? (Score -1, Offtopic) 200

This Google Fiber they're talking about has nothing to do with the Project Fi wireless service, does it? I've been using Project Fi after dumping AT&T, and I'm really liking it. But then, after AT&T, I'd probably be really liking two tin cans connected by a string, so the bar is pretty low.

Comment Re:How can a taxi company... (Score 4, Interesting) 154

How can a taxi company with literally no expenses except for keeping a few servers running run a loss in the billions?

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick is worth over $6 billion. The loss belongs strictly to the investors. The company's doing fine, otherwise.

This is why Uber is not a public company. It's a money laundering operation.
