Comment Re:While It Sucks... (Score 1) 160

nominees for state and federal positions become pathological liars during campaign time. Once elected they follow the demands of their largest financial providers. By the time the next election comes around, the people have forgotten how much of a pathological liar the politician is and once again believe their lofty claims of utopia. Once elected, they get shit on all over again. So electing new politicians will not solve the problem.

I agree as well. I am not familiar with Chelsea, but I am with Snowden. I would be for a pardon and here is why. I believe there is a difference between being a traitor to your government and being a traitor to your country. I see his actions as treasonous to the government but patriotic to the country.

Also, by charging him with treason, the US government declared all the US citizens as the enemy. IMO

That is how Scientology works. "The purpose of the suit is to harass and discourage rather than win. The law can be used very easily to harass, and enough harassment on somebody who is simply on the thin edge anyway, well knowing that he is no authorized, will generally be sufficient to cause his professional decease. If possible, or course, ruin him utterly" - L. Ron Hubbard, The Scientologist, a Manual on the Dissemination of Material, 1955

Comment My family’s data protection plan (Score 1) 229

My family’s data protection plan involves and off-site backup to my parent’s home and vice versa. Each week, we establish a VPN between our homes and do an incremental backup of photos, home videos, and important documents to an external HDD at each home. This prevents loss in case of natural disaster or fire.

Comment Sony Betamax principle (Score 3, Interesting) 321

I see this act no different than recording a radio broadcast onto a cassette tape or recording a TV broadcast on VHS or DVR’s. Now we record a video or audio stream from an online source onto your hard drive. The same principle applies to these activities, different source on different media. So I say Youtube has no legal basis to threaten the developers of these apps. This is how I get my music today. http://www.freemake.com/free_y...

Considering whats going on with Facebook in Germany and Brazil, if I was the CEO, I'd say release our execs (Brazil) and cease your draconian regulations (Germany) or we will block all access to Facebook from your country. When your citizens try to access Facebook, they will be redirected to a site stating to contact your government to release our execs and cease their draconian regulation or you will never see Facebook again.
