Believe it or not roads aren't the only way to travel from one state to the next. I've been camping near a state border before and there was no indication of where one state ended and the other one began. Hunting/Camping trips are a very good example of situation where someone might have a firearm and end up unknowingly cross a state line. Sure you should try to be aware of your surroundings but when the only thing around you for miles are nondescript trees and rocks shit happens.

Submission + - Third Party Apple Product Repair Under Attack

alzoron writes: After the failure of New York's Fair Repair Act independent third party unauthorized Apple repair shops seem to be under attack. Louis Rossmann, owner of Rossman Repair Group, INC has uploaded a somewhat vague video alluding to his Youtube site, where he posts videos about repairing out of warranty repairs, possibly being shut down. Several sources (Reddit, Mac Kung Fu, 9 to 5 Mac) have been speculating about this and whether or not Apple is behind this.

Don't worry, I'm sure all your answers will be answered if you $32 to access the full text of the article. Then again maybe it won't and the study is complete bullshit and you'll have spent that money for nothing.

We seriously need a shift in the way we share scientific data with each other. The system we have now is broken.

Trademark infringement is the unauthorized use of a trademark or service mark (or a substantially similar mark) on competing or related goods and services .

Unless Google's business is running for Congress I don't see how they would have a case for a lawsuit. Trademark has very limited scope compared to copyright and patent. You don't just trademark something and get exclusive rights to it for everything.

This is a prime example of why I am skeptical when people complain about getting unfair copyright notices on Youtube. There are a lot of individuals out there that don't have a clue how the various IP laws work yet think they're experts.

I'm not saying that Youtube is perfect. I've seen some actual abuses and false claims made but for every legitimate complaint I see a hundred instances where someone did something like mix their wedding footage with some Katy Perry songs, upload it to Youtube and then wonder why they got a copyright strike for their totally original material.

Why can't I do that, but other people post concert videos and even full albums, full music DVD rips, etc. and they don't get taken down?

If the guy driving ahead of you is over the speed limit on the highway and they don't get pulled over that doesn't mean it's suddenly ok for you to speed too.

The thing about Doxxing is that we already know most of the "dirt" about Trump. Most of the stuff about him that would kill other potential candidates he wears like a badge of honor. His whole campaign basically depends on being the biggest piece of shit candidate running to make all the small people feel like their faults aren't really all that bad and maybe even ok.
