Comment Re:And to think the DNC wanted to face Trump... (Score 3, Insightful) 2837

I don't think even Libertarians believe the nonsense they repeat about protecting the environment. Bringing a lawsuit is a large burden, and most forms pollution are small but cumulative and difficult to trace to their sources. Who the fuck am I supposed to sue when the sky is brown day after day? When there's mercury in my well water? When the river is full of E coli from people shitting in it?

Trump's sexism may be mostly harmless, but his narcissism is very dangerous. At least Bush was smart enough to take advice from more capable people he surrounded himself with. Unfortunately, many of these people were totally evil (Cheney). Trump thinks he's the smartest person around, and he's more likely to go with his gut than listen to the advice of generals, directors, and economists. And this makes him dangerous.


Hotspot Vigilantes Are Trying to Beam the Internet To Julian Assange ( 246

Ecuadorian government said earlier this week that it did cut off Julian Assange's internet connection. They noted that Assange's continued interference in the U.S. election campaign was the reason why they decided to disconnect Assange from the internet. But it appears some people are going to great lengths to beam internet connectivity to Mr. Assange. This week 4chan urged people to head to the embassy to set up mobile Wi-Fi hotspots, and many are doing just that. From a Motherboard report:"We are now calling all BRITS to get their ass down to the embassy and stand around in mass, taking shifts with wifi-hotspots on hand!" reads the post. "Give Assange constant network and morale support all while streaming it live for the world to see." Are people actually going to try this? Motherboard UK visited the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has claimed political asylum since August 2012, today to find out. Admittedly, on a late October afternoon, things were rather quiet on the street outside the embassy. Nevertheless, I found my guy. "Marco" was loitering outside the embassy, turning on and off his mobile hotspot. I approached him, and while tentative at first, Marco finally started explaining how he was hoping to aid Assange.

The advertisement shows people playing the same game on the TV and the tablet, picking up where they left off. Therefore, the games are developed to run on the tablet.
It's possible that the base station has additional hardware to drive a higher resolution TV, but I doubt it.
