Why would they want to hire some kids who wrote a basic keylogger that was likely easily detectable? No real skills to that. Just some kid writing a piece of malicious code for a small profit, should've stuck to mowing lawns or flipping burgers Now he'll spend the next 10 years tossing salads

Seriously, end the tyrrany and oppression of having XCode bundled with OSX. I want to stop buying Apple Products all together because the new Macbook Pro is a piece of shit and I'm not sure their fucked up AirBuds will fit my ears - but need to still have the ability to create iOS Apps without having to use VNC

Frankly, Apple is fucked -- Tim Cook was a good lackey for Jobs, but has not sense of purpose or direction The smart move would have been for him to find a younger, brilliant, "jobs-like" replacement that he could have mentored Instead, Cook tried to be Jobs and has in a few short years lost momentum and marketability across all of Apple's products Within a few more years, Apple will be back to downsizing and begging for money to live

So, you fork over good money for Prime, only to have to fork over even more for their "channels" like this? Fuck Amazon and fuck Prime. They should either include this for free with Prime or just have everything sold piecemeal like they do with subscriptions on iTunes and iTunes doesn't cost $100/yr. As far as price/value goes, Netflix has Amazon Prime beat and they have plenty of Anime. In fact, Netflix has been putting out their own Anime for a while now, some of it like the Seven Deadly Sins is actually quite good

Comment To All The Cimate Deniers Out There (Score 0, Troll) 436

For those that somehow think that Mankind has nothing to do with Climate Change -- it is a documented Fact that the amount of Greenhouse Gases produced by Mankind far outweigh the Pollutants naturally produced by the Earth 2.4 MILLION pounds of Co2 are released by us every second -- that's 207.36 BILLION pounds of CO2 every day. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/ca... That amount DWARFS the amount of CO2 the Earth produces naturally -- in fact the Earth now produces less than 1% of the CO2 in the atmosphere https://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/volcan... Additionally, An estimated 14 billion pounds of trash-most of it plastic -- is dumped in the world’s oceans every year. http://seastewards.org/project... So not only has MANKIND completely contaminated and inundated our atmosphere with Green House Gases, we have contaminated and polluted our Oceans to such an extent that it's effecting the Global Ocean Currents and killing off aquatic life Your willful ignorance and refusal to accept anything not stated by FOX News as fact changes nothing, but only assures that your children and their children will suffer and possibly die due to exposure or extreme weather related event because of your ignorance and hatred for Science Furthermore, carrying on arguing that Mankind is not the cause of the Climate Change is so completely deluded, you might as well spend your time smearing the walls of your house with your own feces while claiming ignorance of the cause of the foul odor and swarms of flies all around you -- because that's exactly how crazy you sound

Comment The original article (Score 1) 99

Makes no claims that the NSA was intercepting calls made by those people in the US, nor GCHQ in the UK. Since Air France was targeted they may have been intercepting calls made anywhere in the world.

This is, by the way, what NSA and GCHQ are supposed to be doing. Intercepting foreign (to the US and UK respectively) communications.
