Comment The kids are alright (Score 3, Funny) 117

Young people today are impressive. When I was a senior in college, I was turning milk bottles into bongs.

They were sweet bongs, though.

When I got to grad school, that all changed because I was suddenly surrounded by people smarter than me and I had to actually work. But those first seven years of college were a lot of fun.

This problem ain't just on Trump and Republicans.

Now it is. They control all three branches of government and could stop warrantless searches tomorrow if they so decided.

And Trump is the very last person who will relinquish the kind of power that warrantless searches give him.

Comment Bug report (Score 4, Informative) 38

This was buried at the very end of the story:

During a second, unofficial demonstration of the HorseFly for UPS on Monday, some sort of interference – possibly from the broadcast reporters’ cameras - caused an issue with the drone’s compass. The drone aborted its launch, tried to land on top of the UPS truck, fell to the side and was nearly crushed by the still-closing lid of the vehicle.

“We’ve never seen it before,” said Burns, of the glitch.

They already had this. It's called citing your sources and peer review.

Unless you're the president, in which case you can just make up any old bullshit that sounds good, even about nonexistent terrorist attacks, the "historical" margin of your electoral victory or the size of your inauguration attendance. Just because it makes you and your supporters feel good, which is the most important thing.

Comment Re:EU Governments need to ban Windows 10. (Score -1) 158

Well I don't think MSFT or any corp is gonna have to worry about the EU for much longer as it looks like France along with several other countries are getting ready to bail and leave Mama Merkel and her Syrian migrants to it. Can't say as I blame 'em, ever since Merkel opened the floodgates its been a disaster, rape has risen several thousand percent, countries like Sweden having to tell their women not to go out alone at night in their own country for fear of rape gangs, and a bill of 50 billion and counting just for Germany to keep all these uneducated men on the dole.

So MSFT frankly ought to just ignore them, the EU will be nothing but a memory soon enough.

Comment Re:And, I might start buying more from them again. (Score 1) 181

That is the same reason the wife and I have been using Walmart for our online shopping, as it often has prices the same or less than Amazon, cheaper shipping and as a nice bonus a full 2/3rds of the items we purchased last holiday had a "free ship to store" option with many having same day or next day pickup.

Maybe now that Amazon have lowered the shipping we might do more shopping there...then again Walmart recently lowered their free shipping minimum to $25 and most small items we can get free shipping to our local Walmart so I don't have to come up with a bunch of stuff to put in the cart when I just need a flash stick or MicroSD card.
