Comment Re:Peter Thiel didn't bankrupt Gawker (Score 1) 242

Gawker kept winning over the Hogan Family (as seen in VH1 series Hogan Knows Best and Brooke Knows Best) by outspending them, when the Hogans had solid facts behind them. So, some investors reviewed the case without money involved, then bought the Hogan claim and won big for everybody but Gawker.

Comment HRC's E-mail Server (Score 1) 82

Mrs. Clinton is having trouble with people complaining about her e-mail server, while the truth is she's been facing the limits of IT and backup for years. Today there's multi-TB hard drives... but those weren't available during the Bubba Administration. Seems like nobody in politics can keep a contact list private these days.

Comment Remember the Paris Hilton Sidekick... (Score 2) 82

Not much is lost when a list of phone numbers and names is published... remember what happened when Paris Hilton (hotel chain rich girl and occasional TV star) had her SIdekick list published. Those who didn't want to be called changed their number quickly, and some who did want to be called such as low-rated TV personality Justin Gunn made bank collecting information... he even made a Current TV video bragging about his newfound fame.

Remember, everybody in the US House of Representatives is up for reelection right now. So, those phone numbers can be pointed at contribution-taking call centers and taken to the bank..

So, is this the first WIn10 hack or just a lazily e-mailed document?
