Comment Strategically important (Score 1) 20

Yes, but is it strategically important to the World and the people at large?
What most companies fail to realise in this day and age (and I'm not pointing the finger at Apple here) is that the age of exploitation is over. And unless those people, companies, entities, with their Corporate Social Responsibilities, especially those with the power to influence vast masses, start putting the priorities of the Planet, which has so far given us the privilege - not right - to exist and be making all that $$$, it ain't going to benefit anyone.

Just got carried away thinking out loud...

Comment Hypocrites (Score 0) 88

I love how Russians complain about the exact same things they do - they've systematically annexed parts of bordering countries, then complain that said countries start strengthening their NATO ties/ambitions or engage in military exercises. They go and block Wikipedia then allege the US suppresses free speech. 70% people live in abysmal conditions and poverty and all Pukin does is brag every year about how well the country has done yet again, and how democratic the elections are, when it's been the same fucking guy for the last 20 years.

I have one thing to say - let Russia get hacked to shit.

Comment Sounds like Free vaccination... (Score 1, Insightful) 280

Anti-vaxxers (which I know are literally non-existent on /.) need not read further. I think exposure to most new pathogens is likely what keeps our immune systems training, learning and ultimately healthy. Plus a bit of mild diarrhoea is a good cleanser ;) Seriously though, I imagine those going to the Olympics will have received their respective vaccinations well in advance. Otherwise, you might find consolation in the fact that Brazilians swim, drink, (have lots of sex with everything and anything) - and are doing ah-OK. * {usual disclaimer stuff here}
