Bing is grrreat! for 99% of my searches. The only thing lacking in Bing is that if you search for something technical - like looking for a programming answer on a message board. Google is far better at providing message board results and therefore usually better for 'technical' questions.
When you look at America (yes, a representative republic) we are into a couple of 'entitlement' generations.
Sadly this has lead to 50% of Americans not paying federal income tax. The 'takers' are starting to outnumber the 'makers' and along with that people will choose to take what isn't their because they feel entitled to it.
It is actually quite funny because these are usually the ones who preach 'equality' but then favor policies that treat citizens unequal, such as a millionaire tax. These people do this because they feel entitled to that persons personal property.
It is pretty sickening.
Democracy doesn't work because you can always vote to take someones private property.
Time for a class action lawsuit against HP, ect. I am paying for the ink. If I send a job to the printer I expect to use the ink for that job, not extra stuff that HP doesn't inform me about. Either pay for my ink to do this or remove the "feature".
Terrible decision. Network neutrality (or lack there of) is a technical decision. Don't need people who don't understand the technical details and the impact of such a policy make those decisions. This is nothing more than lobbying and politics being played with the SEC which is a body that should remain politic free.
Just what we need, more government to deal with too much government.
How about TSA agents who are working in the back room are not allowed to have cell phones and have that law punishable by automatic termination and 90 days in jail. That would solve the possible problem of cell phone cameras overnight.
So the federal government will subsidize the research costs of private organizations who will reap all of the profit (of commercially viable technology) while taking all of the risk while on the other side, the taxpayer will continue to subsidize politicians pet projects (Solyndra) of technology that has no commercial value.
Great deal for corporations, bad deal for the consumer.
How did this post get +2? Inciting class warfare and force private citizens to buy private products with private money from private company or face possible jail is far more "hateful" and negative to the country than anything Santorum has stated.
LOL, Kickstarter is the biggest scam on the planet. So I give them money to develop a product. *I* take the *risk* and they reap all of the reward. If I am going to invest into an idea, it will be for equity in that idea, not a free ride for someone else to possibly make millions..
