So you deviated from the right path and ended in the shithole that is Slashdot?
As a teenager I grew up in New York City. After that, and other experiences, Slashdot doesn't bother me 'that' much.

Religion fills the void when the government is ineffective, or non-existent. But human nature being what it is, it seems that when people are placed in any positions of power over others that power is often abused. Without individual men and women who are brave enough to say out loud, "This is wrong!", the wrong continues unabated, and gets worse. That's why I admire whistle-blowers, it's often scary to stand up for what's right, they're to be applauded for going against the norm. That's the only way change for the better can begin to happen.
I really do pity you people with an American education. Really. Who is "noone", by the way?
Peter 'Noone' put out a lot of good music back in the sixties, but 'no one' born after then knows who he is.
It sounds like you are all getting old and ornery (lol). Welcome to the neckbeard world, better sharpen those razors!
Dan Moren, senior editor of Macworld, talked tech with cofounder of gdgt Ryan Block, Wired staff writer Christina Bonnington, Ars Technica editor Jacqui Cheng and tech blogger John Gruber.
In their eyes, Apple’s critics were misinformed, jealous and/or paranoid.

On-topic: I've tried using regular watches in my life, the faces always got scratched up after awhile, the pins that hold the straps would break and some time later I'd notice my watch is gone. I've gotten away from watches and gotten used to having this phone always on my person, I won't be needing or using this new 'fashion tech'

"here is a technological solution to the problem in the pipeline -802.11ad, a next-gen wireless standard that uses 60GHz frequencies to send and receive information, instead of the usual 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. At 60GHz, according to Beaudet, radio energy essentially just bounces off the atmosphere -meaning that the frequency is useless to the Green Bank Telescope in the first place. Signals to and from 802.11ad access points, then, would have no effect on the work taking place at the GBT, allowing for the best of both worlds. Unfortunately, 802.11ad is very much a technology of the future, not of the present -experts at an Interop New York panel last year predicted that devices using the standard wouldn't hit the market until 2014."
Back on topic, Bush's sister cannot believe that someone actually breached her privacy by hacking into her accounts. She reacted just like the average computer user would, shocked and dumb-founded. Seems like your average American woman, a nice, if somewhat ignorant person.
It was interesting to learn that Fox news correspondent Brit Humes is close to the Bush family, how very 'fair and balanced' of that reporter.
But first extract restitution. I doubt very much that they could ever repay all of the damage they did, but they should pay for as much of it as they can.
Agreed. Until there are harsh and consistent penalties for crimes like these, they'll continue, until there's no country left.
It took about 300 years for Rome to fall, after most of its gold and valuables were stolen and removed by the rich and powerful of the time, and the infrastructure began to fail. I see a lot of parallels here.
