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.
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'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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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"
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.
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.
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!
Wouldn't it be great is we could use the web as tool to stage the largest protest of Hollywood the country has ever seen. Put up a site and get the word out for everyone in America to boycott the movie theaters for an entire weekend. One weekend where everyone said enough is enough and let it be known to Hollywood and Congress that backdoor deals and catering to the Hollywood bribes is a bad idea and that we're watching. I haven't been to a movie theater in over 9 years and the more I read the less chance that I ever will.
Wow....The only reason I have an iPad is because it was a gift. Now I need to quickly get it on ebay and sell it before Apple successfully gets the "first sale" doctrine changed as well forcing everyone to eat their proverbial "Apple" products. It's obvious Samsung got it right......and Apple knows it. At some point they need to learn how to make a better product and add more value than just changing the color of the case.
