    Let's get started

    I'm actually in the tech industry and find the claims and merits miss Feinstein has put out to be worthwhile and should definitely get traction in Congress.

    I believe we should first start with the Banking industry. I can't think of a better place to start implementing a mandatory back door to encryption. We all know terrorists and pedofiles need and use money. That's a no-brainer we should move on the financial districts immediately.

    Also, I want the encryption key to Feinsteins phone because I'm sure that bitch has nothing to hide, no back room deals or quid pro quo relationships in play.

    Go Ahead Level the field

    Yes. Let's take the lead of the those EU Asshats. Let's level the field because Spotify pays more and therefore is disadvantaged. I think all of us would like to see a level playing field. Let's return all of the manufacturing plants erected in most of the 3rd world shit holes because they pay .50 cents an hour for labor. I'm sure there are plenty of EU companies outsourcing their shit somewhere else because its cheaper. Heaven forbid should the US get a price advantage in a market. If the EU commissioners are so concerned then they can cough up the dough and supplement all of those artists. We all know in reality that artists get screwed by everyone, the big recording agencies, record companies, digital streamers, RIAA (the ones with the largest cocks) and I'm pretty sure that includes some EU licensing grabs where the lions share of the revenue stays out of the artists pockets. Maybe just a touch of hypocrisy going here when it suits them most.

    Be Careful what you ask for

    I can only imagine right now what Apple engineers are cooking up in the back room for the next major IOS release. I am hoping they are huddled in a conference room with no outside access, 10 pots of coffee and 2 dozen donuts feverishly figuring out how to make an unbreakable OS and shove it up the FBI's ass.

    Maybe they can call it IOS 10.0 FTNSA (Fuck the NSA).

    Pure Streisand

    Thanks to their bogus DMCA notice they will continue to "pop" up on the web for a long sustained while longer..

    Bring it ON

    Reading this just reminded me that I need to update my Ghostery app and my Adblocker app to make sure that Asshats like GQ get the message.

    Who in this world looks forward to ads shoved in their face for shit they don't want.....and secondly who in the hell clicks on one and actually buys something.

    We need balance in this

    I don't agree with allowing cops to hide behind this legislation to avert accountability. However, I do believe the video and audio should be released but freely to those who are directly involved,i.e., family, witnesses and those people whose name ends up on the police report or who could get a subpoena to appear in court. For example, my elderly mother-in-law required the police to do a welfare check and ultimately have her committed to a hospital for early dimentia. The cops walked all throughout her home (she lives alone) and could be filming the whole time with body cams. A nefarious person could FOIA that footage if they saw the commotion and would have a full inventory of her house in order to plan a robbery.

    So before we just allow anyone to grab the footage to do with it what they want there needs to be some guidelines and limitations. As far as I'm concerned if the cops are dealing with me in my house that's between me and the cops not someone looking to make a viral video who is not directly involved......my 2 cents worth.

    Time for the Obama-Pad

    I'm in. Let's get rid of all pens and paper, I'm sure the government doesn't mind providing iPads and Surface Pro 3's to every living person in America so that they can effectively take notes and pass them to their friends. Hell, we shouldn't stop there they should also provide us all with a free Office 365 account and cloud email storage (that way they can read it even easier).

    What a brilliant idea. After reading this gem of a story now I fully understand why we're going to be screwed by Terrorists..... because this is the best that our government Asshats can come up with. No wonder they can only thwart the terror plots that they manufacture as opposed to real ones.

    Fix the Liberal Media first

    I find it interesting the Hillary blames Facebook, Twitter and Youtube for inciting radicalization and pretty much glorifying radical islam. The problem is not with those media's which are individually sought out. The problem is with the over the top press and media coverage by the television news outlets. They know they are going to get lots of coverage. It's not terrorism unless you able to instill terror in lots of people and not just those in the immediate area. As long as we put it front and center and give every pundit talking point time and extensive video coverage this problem will not cease. I don't think it would be as rampant (mass shootings not associated with terroism as well) if they didn't get the news coverage. What they're doing just wouldn't be as effective without the big media blasting all over the TV night after night after night.

    The Sound of money

    That sound you here is the crackle of a brand new check book when it first opens up.

    They should charge everyone who went into the barn with some sort of conspiracy charges.

    New Product Announcement

    We're in luck, just saw a new ad from Levi's and the GAP, they are introducing encrypted pockets in all of their jeans. Because, up till now, accessing your pockets is like accessing your home so to afford us new protections there will be adding encryption to the back pocket to protect the POPO from gaining access to your phone.

    Is this guy an Asshat or does he just play one in real life.

    The new world order

    Imagine the world in which Ann Barstow lives, we could create an entire cottage industry of angry Astro Turfers making negative comments on every communication that they want taken down by utilizing the bastardized DMCA process.

    I think Ann and a whole lot of others need to re-read the constitution because no-where anywhere does it say you have the right to not be offended....... Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness maybe....... but being offended that's going to happen no matter what glass bubble you live in.

    The apple rolled a long way

    I guess this apple fell and rolled down the hill and came to rest under a Pear Tree.

    WTF..... Have we not learned anything over the past 8 years.
    Pull AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, TMOBILE and every other ISP's dick out of your mouth and grow a pair otherwise its dumbass statements like this will have you watching the elections from your easy chair in lieu of being involved with them.

    Its NY for Christs sake

    What did you expect. I must have missed the part where Blake pulled the knife. We need better cameras, its just not fair that we weren't able to pick up the knife wielding, the resisting arrest, etc parts of that take down. Shame on us.

    We live in a world full of Asshats wearing blue uniforms.

    BLAH BLAH BlAH

    Really,

    I live in Texas and I'm embarrassed as hell by this. It's so sad that our kids are being exposed to such stupidity from individuals who are supposed to be their educators.

    It's time to flush the toilets in our school systems and rid the world of these senseless turds.

    "The Rest of the Story"

    Anyone on the net familiar with Paul Harvey and his afternoon recap of the day's news will undoubtedly recognize the phrase "An now for the rest of the story"

    "provide $250,000 in settlement funds"

    I think this says it all !!!

    Pure Asshats

    I wonder if I post something about these Spanish asshats if they will have the balls to send me a bill to..

    This would be an absolute joke....if it weren't for it being true

    Already flushed the toilet

    I've run into too much of this with Lenovo. We pulled the plug on all Lenovo's last year. We liked their M93P boxes for out on the manufacturing floor because of small footprint and wifi capable. Unfortunately, they have a bad habit of generating IPv6 broadcast storms basically shutting down the network. We traced the storms to several machines that didn't even have IPv6 enabled.

    Good Bye...so long. We only have about 350 users but that's 350 less Lenovo's. Someone needs to pull their head out of their asses otherwise they will lose all of their business customers.

    We need them all Tim

    There needs to be an ongoing running list of all of the stellar references for Tim and other on Techdirt.

    "Tim writes like a whining little bitch…" - Tom Forrest, I just love that. That's a classic child-like response supposedly coming from other adults.

    You can just smell the defeat in his words.

    The Real Reason

    The only real reason Ulanoff could possibly want to require registration of real names is for retaliation purposes. Who gives a rats ass if the person's real name is used or not....unless of course you want to spin up a retaliation offensive against that person thereby attempting to chill free speech through online reverse bullying. This is about as hypocritical as you can get. Again, there is absolutely no reason to know the real identify of a anonymous poster unless you had plans to retaliate or go after them. I guess Ulanoff isn't ready to show his cards on that one.
