Why do you assume either of us are Apple fanboys? Can't we just be facts fanboys? You tried to correct someone with wrong information and in a pretty condescending manner at that. I just pointed that out and provided a refernce which clearly explained the ruling and why you were wrong.

Maybe "stop breathing" was too aggressive, how about "stop posting" instead :P

Samsung HQ raided? It must be Wednesday!

Also I think calling Korea one of the most corrupt countries is really exaggerating it when the world outside of Western Europe and North America exists. It's similar to Spain and Czech Republic, better than Italy and waay better than most of everything else.

But really the whole situation is much more interesting than the company having a slush fund for bribes. An old friend of the president is accused of running a cult and influencing the president among other stuff. It's really bizarre:

That's really misrepresenting that situation, and you should know better before correcting people like that.

Apple was following the Irish taxation rules and did not break any laws. What EU is claiming is that the tax regime constituted to state-aid which favored Apple and other companies. Not only Apple, but Ireland (and the US) disagrees about this and are appealing.

Human newbies have a ton of context to determine what's success in the game. I think you're the one who seems to expect a Doom bot to have solved all of AI forever.

This appears to be a significant improvement over something like Breakout or even Mario, and just because it was partially supervised, doesn't make it less of a progress.

Comment Never gonna happen (Score 2) 375

I mean, yeah, he should, but it's never gonna happen. Obama's been going hardcore after whistleblowers and there's nothing indicating he would change his mind now.

No way either Hillary or Trump pardon him either, as they're too involved/sympathetic of state surveillance. Maybe Bernie, Johnson or the crazy green lady would, given the chance, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
