Comment Only time will tell (Score 1, Insightful) 660

These have been increases in temperatures. This implies global warming. Since we are still at the infant stage of understanding and accurately predicting what will happen over mid to long spans of time it's best to stop arguing, try to pollute less since that just makes sense, and enjoy our lives. Life is too damn short to fight about issues primarily created and controlled by oil, gas, and energy corporations.

Comment Were these actions necessary? (Score 4, Insightful) 106

Did the FBI allow crimes to be committed simply to make their jobs easier, or because it was the lesser of two evils. I suspect that it's a bit of both. More FBI sanctioned crimes will occur. The trend isn't ending because of a report about it. In upcoming years, we may not be able to find out how much sanctioned crime occurred, as they are likely to redact just about everything to hide their combination of laziness and criminal complicity. It's really a sad state of affairs in the USA these days.

Comment Cops looking for an easy way to police (Score 4, Insightful) 191

Having more real cops on the streets would be best. I know that the ghetto is the last place Chicago cops want to be. But, that's where most of their murders take place. To curtail murders requires more than a computer program that does nothing actually predictive, only data mining.

Comment Access charges are data rape (Score 4, Insightful) 71

Subscribers pay for a service. An access charge to let them actually use the service should be illegal as it lets the provider advertise a false bottom line price, while putting the add-on access charge in fine print that many people don't notice. No thanks, AT&T or Verizon for that matter.

Comment Bleeping Computer has been a big help to all (Score 4, Informative) 43

Pardon my "French". I check Bleeping Computer's site often, since our shop works on PC's. Their Combo Fix was a godsend back in the day, and is still useful on Windows 7 machines that are infected. Spy Hunter, on the other hand, is a piece of shit run by slim balls. I will never Spy Hunter. AdwCleaner, Combo FIx, Junkware Removal Tool and others do a better job and aren't put out by assholes.
