    Re: To whatreallyhappened readers: Techdirt HATES you!

    Nice site..
    but the front page is to busy..
    and convoluted, buried in its own mass...and just a Link site to others..

    Im here for the entertainment, not to be Overwhelmed by TONS and TONS of BS..even if the truth is buried there..

    Re: Heard the Radiolab Piece -- Same boat as Mike

    If you are willing to report an Uncritical story(no personal opinion) then you MUST do the Whole story..

    If you add the opinion part, you must apologize ALSO..

    PS...on the FRONT PAGE..

    NOPE, history is in the books...
    Truth is seldom there, and much is over looked.
    Thinking eveyone is an ANGEL, is stupid. trying to HIDE that you arnt, is even worse.

    Simple logic(dont always work)

    the Illegals with problems with ID and insurance...TEND to Drive Very safely..
    whats fun about this, is those LEGAL, that forget this. They loose a Insurance, and KNOW they must drive safe, but everyone in the car is Smoking weed.(including a minor)

    But Mostly the illegals Go out to the back roads when they have had a few beers..

    There are things we NEED to teach our kids.
    There are things we need to teach the police.

    I was stopped for a bad light..and wanted to go check it, but the cop wouldnt let me. he decided to only warn me.. i checked later...NO BAD LIGHT..

    For some reason it seems our police are becoming opportunistic Capitalists..

    Anyone get it??

    this is going to be a BIG PROBLEM>..
    This is State agencies only..
    What else are detectives going to use?
    Really... Cant sort out files to Focus on those in an AREA, by Previous convictions or Actions(bar drunks), and cant use the Camera to Check if one or more of those persons are on the camera at the scene??

    Would really like...

    To see these folks paper work, with everything that they are doing and paying out..
    Pay 150 billion and not know :
    HOW it works
    How to make it work
    How to get customers to Buy it..
    How to Improve it..
    How to do much of anything WITH IT..

    In the old days, most companies would create a Subsidiary to help the company and see if they could make things better.. now it seems that Other companies are doing the CORPS job... And those running the Corp are the only employees.. Those Heads of the corp get tons of money just to pay other companies to do THEIR JOB.. The same thing happened to HUGHES sat system, getting bought out.

    To many chiefs and no Indians, to many chefs, and no one to prep.. To much Sauce and no pasta..
    All the smart persons got fired or Quit, and now the Boss's/bill collectors that have no IDEA of how this works...are trying to run the business.

    FBI/CIA/DOJ/.... And other Gov. agencies.

    Have long used the old system to backdoor people..
    There are over 40 different Policing agencies and probably a few we dont know. that have used the older phone system and other devices/sources to monitor people.. Even illegally.

    there is something about the law that is interesting..Just cause doing it is illegal, dont mean they CANT use it internally to help monitor you Otherwise.. Listen to phone calls, and then get a warrant for the MALL you are going to.

    the most fun you will find is the Corp ideals, that Every thing is in Private, you signed a contract you cant say anything.. And for some reason that even goes against Federal laws. Once you sign that contract to 'Shutup' you cant report the corps for anything. you will end up in court, just to protect the contract for you to SHUT UP..

    Corps get more Privacy then any citizen. And accordingly, To show How you got information you have to show all the Trails you walked to GET what you Prove the Problem...

    Back to subject...
    HOw many groups would make Apps for the gov? most. But the creators DONT WANT TO GOTO COURT.. Its not to hard to have a device and monitor it, and what its doing.. and there are groups that do that also.. Including AV/ANTIBOT/... programs. Even some routers have that ability to Watch for when 1 device connects and does something.
    Its a battle between those that control your phone, and WHO can do what to your phone, and HOW to hide what they are doing.
    Both apple and google have removed Apps because of this.
    Wake up in morning, and your phone on the charger is almost Dead?? cause it did TONS of crap in the middle of the night??

    Who ever got ATT to buy up all the recent corps, should be Shot..
    Its like a Kid WANTING something but grabs everything pretty..and dont get what he wanted..
    Or buying that GREAT Model set, only to find its 4 levels above what you wanted to build...More pieces and instructions then you can follow..

    Re: "Something" compels Techdirt minion to report on NOTHING.

    Where there is smoke, there is fire..
    The bread was there,
    Lets find it..
    Find who took it..Who ate it, who stole it, WHO/WHAT did what..

    Or just pick it up off the floor..and blame the dog/Cat/gerbil..

    Re: Feature creep?

    Thats how 1 app works, among TONS that do about the same..

    To much math..

    "A low Earth orbit (LEO) is an Earth-centered orbit with an altitude of 2,000 km (1,200 mi) or less (approximately one-third of the radius of Earth),[1] or with at least 11.25 periods per day (an orbital period of 128 minutes or less)"

    And I think they cant be Stationary..
    If its 1 Sat, its going to do allot of work for those that use it, as well as Signal lag, changing from different locations..

    It can/should be used for allot of things, but online gaming WONT use this. the delay estimated (4000km=2x2000km(up and down) is around 5.3 seconds. Even stockbrokers wont use that..
    And EVEN if they can relay from 1 sat to the next...its a radio signal. its NOT the speed of light.
    Even if they use a Major HUB, and send it as a light signal. the time lag is not great because 90% of the USA does not have FIBER to the home to do it.

    IF we had the perfect system, and nothing between the connections that would slow things down. There will still be delay in the signal.
    Otherwise, Hughes Corp would of had it up YEARS ago.
    (they had a sat tv corp, they got bought out)

    What to do..

    What would happen in the USA, if a persons picture of them Standing over the corpse of an American Indian..

    you stand on a corner..

    And you are just Random scanning the digital codes..
    Most of them you can read and hear, pretty easily..

    THEn you see one, thats scrambled.
    So you and your friends, decide to unscramble it.

    How do you think they Picked the right ones?? in a field of signals all over the place...AND IF they were all scrambled, which would you choose?

    Ok, time for the fun part..

    Since the easy way has been blocked, what do we have to do, to make this look bad?
    Can we get a few hackers into this and make things worse?
    Where is there Main service connection to the net,and can we Bog the service connection down?
    Where is the access point, Do we OWN it already? We wil do as California does it, and Bounce their connections all over, so they can hold a static connection, which can Make games and programs THINK the City Citizens never have the same computer, and ask them to REDO their connections. enter passwords and such to PROVE who they are, every time they connect.
    Can we SPAM, their Whole system?
    Can we Wait for 5-7 years then BUY THEM OUT??

    Its always annoyed me, how spam can be sent to ## people and a Server cant tell, its spam..
    I wonder if the Major corps sell off our info..MORE MONEY.

    Re: Re: AND??

    In the original story line its that the Cops had watched the house for 2-3 weeks...And still didnt have any names of those inside.
    Taking pictures and Getting the ID from about them should have been the first thing..
    Then locating the Land owner, If it was a rental, wouldnt be hard..City records..
    If THEY OWNED the land, thats at City records also.,.
    Then goto DMV and look up the pictures to see Who they are...

    Then the thought comes to mind...How many people WENt to that address...Is there a List and ID on them?>?

    How often did they get deliveries, or did they Leave the premises for things like FOOD..
    then lets ask..
    the First person in is Padded, and protected, and STILL shoots the dog..Which I find Shockingly Stupid..
    BECAUSe you should be SCREAMING THAT YOU ARE A POLICE OFFICER...THIS IS A RAID.. And no mention of persons covering the back of the building..
    Since they DIDNT know who they were, even tho it was PROBABLY PUBLIC RECORD...

    For all of this...What reason? everything has been thrown out..Whats left?
    Not money,
    He liked the Lady ALLOT??
    He hated them?
    A court case??
    His Ex wife?? Her Ex husband??

    First amendment...

    FINE...let them have them.
    But to have them they MUST be able to tell EVERYONE what they wish to say.. Otherwise its Bias, only speaking to those that have access, or can afford access.

    Under their Ideal, we would all have to goto friends home to watch Cable/sat, WHICH i dont think they like either..

    And while you are at it...HIGH SPEED INSTALL INTERNET..
