    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.

    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.

    Systemic Problem

    There was a time when I would tell my son that no matter what do what officers tell you to do. There is no reason to question their intent or motives they're just doing their job. Thank god for smart-phones. I no longer believe that the majority of cops a good. I think the majority of cops start out good and then get corrupted by the intoxication of power and what they can do to you and get away with. For every smart-phone video where the cops get caught just imagine how many peoples civil rights they violate that are not caught of film. This is the tip of the iceberg, these are not isolated occurrences these are Standard Operating procedures that include the solidarity of the blue wall to protect them from accountability.
    Truly we are seeing 1% of these violations. Welcome to the new world order of the U.S. Police State. I don't think it was this bad or rampant in East Germany during their heyday of civilian rights violations. Something has to change.

    OFF The Mark - Totally

    I'm a daily reader of Techdirt and for the most part the site is right on point. Here you guys totally missed the mark. Talk about stifling free speech. What the hell does a red skinned (new potato) have to do with a football team. Why don't we just ban red skinned new potatos since they are obviously racist and if we ban them there is not commerce issue and we don't have to worry about USPTO or any LIBERAL getting the feelings hurt or panties all wadded.
    This article is such a disappointment at so many levels.

    You guys missed the mark, the boat, the barn, everything.

    I'm of Irish background and find the term Mick offensive. We should ban all businesses that have a "Mc" in their name. Let's start with McDonalds, I think you guys can carry that torch for me. It's disparaging and hurts my feelings.

    @4 ......idiot

    Who taught you English. you're not even ranting coherently (sorry was that too big of a word). Maybe you haven't realized just how politics and the machine works. Feed crap to the sheeple as much as you can and as often as you can and you can rewrite history. I saw the show since my wife had it on, thought it was a pretty lame attempt to "set the record straight". Maybe you didn't catch that nuance from the liberal left (that's Hollywood to you). Pull you head out.......then wash your face.

    Damage Contro....full swing

    The answer is "HELL NO". They are already doing damage control. I watched the latest NCIS show last night that portrayed an NSA agent (who will most likely be joining the NCIS Team) who was an analyst. They made a joke (kinda) several times where the character Abbey accused the NSA of spying.... and the canned response was so bad, "You know we can't do that without a court order". She said it on 3 different occasions as if that is the definitive testimony to the truth. It's the old adage, if you repeat a lie enough times it becomes the truth. I wonder if Dianne Feinstein (Frankenstein) had her liberal cronies write that into the script.

    The perfect Storm

    Here we go with a the new model. I copyright troll invents software to identify copyright violations so that whenever their fellow copyright trolls try to do the same they can troll on them with patent infringement lawsuits. I would love nothing better than to watch one copyright troll going after another copyright troll over how they're trolling for business.

    quite ironic.

    This is Scary Stuff

    WOW....this guy's an idiot and pretty much single handily convinced a bunch of other idiots to award a Billion Dollars to a corporation (which we all know that these awards end up being included in price of future products)based on his own ignorant misunderstanding of "prior art". They should have picked a jury or group of individuals from the technology sector to hear this case. What's really sad is that he starts off with identifying himself as someone who understands technology.....maybe so just not Prior Art or jury instructions. Talk about a runaway jury. This is exactly what is wrong with our patent system. I'm pretty sure Apple is trying to figure out how to lower prices on their products once they get Samsung eliminated from the market being the good industry stewards that they are. As Bill Paxton would say....."Game Over....we're F'd"

    Prior use

    If I'm correct the first time that I actually sneezed and spread my genes all over my mommies eyeglasses was when I was about 2 weeks old. I claim prior use and spread of my genes and therefore they cannot be patented.

    This is why I won't buy another e-reader

    OK..I was one of the first group to purchase a Kindle for my wife (back when it was $350) since she is an avid reader. The whisper net feature was great and the list of titles she could download for $2.00 was fantastic. I have over 1,500 paper backs at the house on shelves and I thought I saw the last bill from Barnes & Nobles and others being replaced with Kindle purchases. NOT ANYMORE. Here we are 3 or 4 years later and the price of e-books for the Kindle are now more than the paperback prices. I guess me and a whole lot of other people pissed away our money and ultimately got screwed. You can't tell me it costs more to produce an e-book than a printed paperback book.

    It's quite obvious the system is F'd up.

    Re: Re: Re: Re:

    oh man... can you guys do anything but whine and cry like babies? Wah! Wah! Waaaaaah! Get over it already...

    I'm over it I just don't approve of our government being run by the entertainment industry.....obviously you do. Not until all of your rights and freedoms have eroded away will folks like you stand up and do something about it........the liberal mindset, government will take care of you and always has your best interests in mind......right!
