Comment Stay strong EasyDNS! (Score 1) 251

Um, why don't they just contact the hosting provider or IP-block owner to takedown the site if they suspect illegal activity? The domain is just an 'easier' way for people to access the site. If EasyDNS succumbs to this I'll have to seriously think about moving to another registrar. Not that I'm running anything quesitonable but what if a user in one of my domains sends something questionable and is investigated by police and orders EasyDNS to takedown my domain... Food for thought.

Comment utter hogwash... (Score 1) 911

The feminine computing product that Aqqle released is not destroying netbook sales, notebook sales are destroying netbook sales.

Netbooks looked like a good deal and were something new a few years ago but they're outdated now. Aqqle's iPad will fair the same, until the iTampon comes out...

Comment terrorist targets? (Score 1) 87

Well done, give terrorists excellent targets for future attacks. Yes, bombing a few buildings or vehicles and killing people will get you in the headlines but take down data centers and you can really screw the world. Or would they avoid them as they may have data stored in them too? Hmmm...
