Agreed but if memory serves one of the arguments they were pushing was that they can't tailor the ads and so on and we haven't seen any type of offering from Aereo in this front. While the broadcasters may not accept it would add another good argument in court (at least I think it would).
Another concern bubbling up in Chicago is that the programs are effectively using racial profiling to target already-troubled areas where crime naturally would be greater due to poverty, without anybody bothering to perform a deeper analysis of why those areas might be having problems (aka targeting symptoms, not disease)
Actually, it's the laziness idea. Go for the low hanging fruit instead of doing proper investigative work. Pretty much the default for law enforcement these days.
Still, Aereo is lacking here too. They could be making agreements with the Broadcasters to tailor the advertisements to the region where they are being streamed to in exchange of using a set up that is, you know, SANE instead of having a single antenna per user. Sounds like a win-win situation where such content would reach much more people.
I can't wait till such databases get copied and distributed freely causing enormous REAL harm terrorism would never dream of causing. Grab your popcorn gentleman. It's either that or we'll see the US become the new Nazi Germany (without the Holocaust maybe? Or will racism prevail?).
It seems we need another round of hard, bloody lessons on what not to do.
Yeah I know, you usually need to flash only the OS. There are very rare cases where you need to upgrade the modem or any other components that are independent from the OS. Still, Apple is not even near and they are the ones most affected if you think about it, no?
Chávez fucked up Venezuelan economy with his "Bolivarian" revolution thing (ie: populism) and now the country is paying a heavy toll. Chávez had both the 'charisma' and a more favorable scenario to hold onto power as he did. Maduro will eventually fall. Argentina is on the brink also. Courtesy of a corrupt political class that pretends to represent the people (read: the old Left wing).
Amusingly, the other end of the spectrum is just as fucked up (the old Right wing, see the US, UK etc). I wonder where are we heading...
At one of the protests there were a few who tried to break a public building (I can't recall if it was the Town Hall or the Municipal Theater) and the protesters that were just walking in peace made some sort of human barrier to stop them. There are also several cases where protesters grouped around wounded cops and helped carry them to safety when things went berserk (at the time the police was totally at fault for the escalation). At a point tear gas bombs were shot INSIDE hospitals where the protesters, wounded and healthy, tried to seek shelter.
At the moment they are very worried with the World Cup. There are two very dangerous laws that gained a lot of traction with the last demonstration, one is the Marco Civil (to some extent the Brazilian version of the terrifying spawn of SOPA and the Cybersecurity bills) and an anti-terrorism law that combined would be the wet dream of any dictatorship. Obviously they are ignoring the main source of such disruptions: the fact that we spend billions of dollars in a circus while our health system is in shambles, the education produces functional illiterates and our judicial/jail/law enforcement systems are broken resulting in very poor conditions for those who can't afford the private option of what the Government should provide as is written in the Constitution (our Constitution).
While terrible, what's happening here is hardly a surprise given our recent history for those who are following it.
