Submission + - Getting out of the Social Networks and a getting a real life

NSN A392-99-964-5927 writes: I have not published my report as of yet, but over the last 5 years I struggle to find what social networks finally achieve. Before I publish the report later this year I would like to ask slashdot. Have people decided on a specific purpose in joining that Social Network or is it Just the lack of something to do?

Well DUH! Whenever some CEO says "We won't do it" as soon as something they planned (read: quietly announced to test the waters) caused a public outcry, it only means "we're waiting for you to be occupied with something else".

They invested money inventing it, it benefits them, they won't just "forget" about it. They wait for YOU to forget about it.

I know someone in the mid-west United States Missouri who is the daughter of the brain-child of a filthy rich Monsanto monster. His daughter suffers from serious health issues. There are also a lot of freedom on information requests on Monsanto in the UK but with a bit of luck from honest people and health risks.... this is where the the UK/USA stands and we will not be defeated by lies and cover ups!

Small Speech;

Ladies and Gentlemen; Our rights;

1, To defend the Magna Carta
2, The people of America are here to defend the Constitution

Messing with our rights is unfair and actually highly unacceptable in any way shape or form; be it by bad diplomacy, wars, and the amount of other PR (Public Relations can be drummed up in the name of democracy to justify your actions). We do not want wars, we want peace.

If you do not mind we get on with all people from all religions and we understand that we are 'Friends Together'.

Comment If you use Windows 8 (Score 0) 185

You certainly cannot do this but waste half of your life trying to undo the metro system and have to do some registry changes and even that does not work to get rid of the offending system. There was a report on slashdot about M$ blaming manufacturers about the failure of Windows 8.

Here are some links below that will help you out;

But that only helps so far as the damn thing does keep on appearing the only thing you can do after booting up is to run the metro killer

The metro system is that intrusive that one might want to think about downgrading and you can get help with that from;

hope that helps and if all else fails just get hirens boot cd; reformat and start over from scratch

In reality, when it comes around to Microsoft and Google nothing will ever be settled. They will always be fighting to gain market share.

Back when google launched it was a friendly search engine many many years ago and friendly, but now it is just an appalling spy machine for government agencies as is microsoft and microsoft are controlled by the gov and are complicit with cofee

What I am saying is Google and M$ will prostitute themselves without a care in the world as long as they can rake in some cash from users and this goes all the way up to the highest governmental level in the advent of SOPA PIPA etc.

It is my prediction that Google will merge "" with microsoft within the next two years and Yahoo will side or merge with facebook.

Comment Sub Means below? (Score 3, Interesting) 264

So is this story misleading to say that absolute zero was achieved. Wikipedia The Celsius and Fahrenheit scales are defined so that absolute zero is 273.15 C or 459.67 F.

But in the news story it says SUB and SUB means below, yet there is no mention of the temperature whatsoever in the article and going beyond absolute zero is not possible even out in space! You can get close, but not to absolute zero otherwise you would have created the ultimate weapon!

Enough said.

Compare the revenues received by the estate of Elvis Presley in 2012 with those of any year while he was alive.

In other words, STFU.

Compare the Drugs Elvis took, he is dead... get over it or try pimping your arse in Las Vegas as Elvis. Lisa Marie-Prestley has also made a hash of things, from Danny Keogh, to Scientology and another husband etc etc......

I really do like your comment when you said;

So Apple's riding high on a mountain of cash right now, and the i-Stuff is deluging its coffers with more money every quarter - but the end of that ride is in sight, and it won't be much more than a decade before litigation is ALL the company has left - because Steve Jobs, the technological Elvis, has left the buidling for good.

Thank you for a bit of sanity


Submission + - Microsoft Concerned about 'Weak and Unusual' FTC-Google Settlement ( 1

DavidGilbert99 writes: "Google response to the conclusion of the FTC's antitrust investigation was unsurprisingly positive:

"The conclusion is clear: Google's services are good for users and good for competition."

Microsoft's negative outlook at the deal was equally unsurprising:

"The FTC's overall resolution of this matter is weak and-frankly-unusual. We are concerned that the FTC may not have obtained adequate relief even on the few subjects that Google has agreed to address.""

Comment Apple has a problem and they know it (Score 0, Troll) 138

I would just like to say, with the amount of patents Apple are filing and the lawsuit with Samsung; Apple have been quite devious and covert in their operations. As a company they know they are losing a large customer base and everything they do at the moment just compounds the fact that they cannot be trusted!

Other companies are getting a bigger bite of the Cherry....Not Apple! (No Pun Intended) and Apple have generated ph33r for themselves losing market share.

The CEO of Yahoo Marissa is sooner or later going to have to admit she made a mistake "sharing a bed with Apple and iphones for all Yahoo staff".

This will probably come out in the news over the next two weeks. There is something seriously wrong with Yahoo including siding with law enforcement agencies now and a privacy policy almost worst than Microsoft, Google, Paypal, Facebook.

Well at least I have got that off my chest.

P.S Happy New Year to all the honest people out there,

Comment Trying to be realistic (Score 1) 1

It is nice to have a discussion regarding this but some of my friends in the USA are of the same view as me; that US Drone strikes kill innocents and I find it hard to have sympathy with those who have died in the gun attack.

One of my friends from the Royal Air Force was shot down and killed after a bombing raid in Iraq and was trying to land in Kuwait. American's called this friendly fire.

Lets be truthful, nothing is friendly when it comes around to weapons of any calibre.

Maybe some sanity can prevail....enough wars, the people do not want them!

Love NSN

It's funny.  Laugh.
