When TD started offering Sitestack deals I looked at a couple. The one that really turned me away from buying anything from the site was the VPN "lifetime" deal. The vendor offering it was very poorly rated on various sites. Another was a $19 training deal. Most of the courses were taught by someone who couldn't speak english very well and the content wasn't really very good. I found a better deal at a couple other sites. The $49 AWS training, however, was great. The $200 Nexus 5 referb was great but the free year of service from FreedomPop ISP was crap.
As I said, a mixed bag. Caveat Emptor. Mike should personally approve everything that goes up as a special. If he already does this, maybe there should be 3 people who approve it with a vote of 2 out of 3.
Another wrinkle, although not directly related, the DoJ has been trying to subpoena records from a MS subsidiary's servers in Ireland, which MS' lawyers say are outside of US jurisdiction. DoJ is contending they should have access to any company's records so long as they have a presence on US soil. This has led some people from using US-based cloud services, opting for EU-based providers because the DoJ doesn't have jurisdiction over them.
If a EU prosecutor can subpoena records of a US company, what's next.
Also, EU data retention statues are shorter than the US. That will have to be normalized also.
I bought the referb Nexus 5 for $200 and I figured I got the phone for that price. The Freedom Pop 'service' has been questionable. I had to upgrade the service from the 500MB monthly data to 2GB for $24.95x12.
So far, I still can't get phone calls from my driveway up to my unit. My phone doesn't even ring. I put that in SPRINT's lap but Freedom Pop can't do much to fix it.
If I could change carriers to Cricket and get AT&T's network instead of SPRINT, I'd do it.
But I won't ever by another product through TechDirt again. I hope the find another model.
I took a very similar deal for a Nexus 5 for $200 with a year's worth of their service. I figured that if it was crap, I'd port the phone to Cricket who'd take it without blinking.
The phone's been live since Wednesday even though my account was active at the start of LAST MONTH. It took them 3 f-ing weeks to get me my phone. And they won't adjust my account.
I tried to port my # to them but decided on Google Voice in case I switch providers. That's worked so far. But the problems of people calling me from my driveway and it going to Voicemail still persists. That's because Virgin Mobile and Freedom Pop use Sprint's network.
The people depicted opening Cisco Router boxes to modify the equipment with a back door will probably be identified soon enough. The pics are probably in a publisher's safe or files and I doubt they'll be in a maximum security vault. It's just a matter of time before those people are found and "brought to justice" by the Chinese, along with the people they work for.
What would Clapper do if a Chinese strike team showed up at his door, bagged him, and got him off shore to the Chinese mainland.
The US has opened the door to all sorts of Tom Clancy styled story lines here. Some may actually happen.
From a contract point of view, United looks like they're in material breech of the terms of care they supposedly offered in their program. She's got documented video of the maltreatment. Either someone in legal is hoping this won't blow up in United's face (way to late for that, thanks Internet) or they'll go to court and ultimately settle.
I hope this woman goes for class action status. There must be others to had pets who didn't make it or were maltreated by the Airline. Make them pay.
It's clear that either Jarrod either doesn't know the difference between copyright and trademark law OR he knows the difference and is filing a frivolous complaint. Either one show he's incompetent or knowing attempting to deceive the court.
Maybe he should be practicing law. One less scumbag lawyer out of this might send a message.
I can imagine what the Board's reaction would have been if the lawyer had addressed them with mentions of litigation against each member personally rather than the school district as a whole. That way, they'd have to pay the cost out of pocket and insurance wouldn't cover it.
ADA violation, 1st and 2nd amendment violations. The list just starts there. I wonder how these clowns would deal with that?
First step is a TRO against the district along with litigation contesting the jurisdiction the Principle is asserting.
Then file suit to get this Principle removed from the school district and teaching.
If that fails, suit to close the school until they hire a competent Principle.
If the school district through this Principle is going to assert they're responsible for everything that happens from door-to-door, start collecting cases for a personal injury class action against the district. If there were any shootings that happened while traveling to/from school, this makes the district libel for damages.
Really, this Principle has recto-cranial inversion really bad. Why are all these nutjob Principles in the South?
I can see a helicopter parent (who's also a lawyer) going after this with the help of that local Student Law center. And suing the principle personally for violating a student's 1st amendment rights. Because his Johnny *has* to get into Harvard. And not being in sports or clubs would get in the way of that.
because they keep doing stupid things (along with police departments) to kids and now their parents. If the DA chooses to pursue this, I hope that any civil suit that results will make the school district think before acting stupidly. And their new insurance company--cause it only takes one incident of 'being stupid' to get your insurance cancelled.
I'd love to see Carmen Ortez in a courtroom against an attorney that would use her proprietorial record against her. And the fact that Miranda was withheld or delayed will severely hamstring sad prosecution.
