Comment Maybe folks have re-evaluated "value" (Score 3, Insightful) 113

Even Apple has had difficulty creating appealing new features, stifling demand from customers who otherwise would look to upgrade to the latest device

While I agree that Apple hasn't really been able to introduce new features, some folks around me have ditched the iPhone for its expense. I guess they are finally "coming to their senses."

I always wondered why one would pay over US$900 for something that has functionality of other devices at half the cost; and would be "obsolete" in a year.

Comment Saddam's WMD stories were also fake news? (Score 1) 158

while, as of early Saturday morning some sites are still running the original story claiming CNN did, in fact, broadcast 30 minutes of porn.

In the time leading to the 2003 Iraq war, the WMD coverage must have been fake too. This story ran for more than a year!!! [Respectable] news outlets blabbing with government propaganda, that resulted into an unnecessary war, that killed several thousand people! So, this is an example of fake news too?

Then after that, we blame Russia and those other entities we may not like? Can some soul explain this please? And what is the solution anyway?

At the State Department, the spokesman dodges questions saying he can't confirm this or that - if the news isn't what the government wants to hear but confirms hospitals as having been bombed since all information is from "credible sources".

I am saddened by all this. Who takes the blame I have no clue!!

The ship's engineering plant -- the Integrated Power System (IPS) -- is arguably the most complex and unique in the service.

This statement should have read: "The ship's engineering plant -- the Integrated Power System (IPS) -- is arguably the most complex, unique and prone to failure and hacking in the service.Eemphasis mine.

Comment I thought Americans had freedom of speech... (Score 1, Insightful) 232

...Yes, freedom of speech which includes the freedom to say what may certainly be irrelevant, inaccurate or plain wrong to a particular situation.

has anyone ever followed the State Department's press conferences? I am sure that for those who have, its provision of "nonanswers" to difficult questions exposed the hypocrisy and utter disregard for the ordinary American.

One regime we support is "allowed" to humiliate some human beings, but if the regime isn't what we support, we condemn and sanction!

The trouble is, we then brag about it and preach! Americans looked through the BS and elected who they did.

FB should ask those who are complaining to go chew on some carrots if they're looking for how to get their mouths busy in a way.
