Dotcom Wins Right To Sue NZ Government

Arclight17 Re: He is no hero, no Aaron Schwartz, no EFF. (127 comments)

You do realize that the US government is trying to get him extradited in order to put him on trial for crimes in the US. I believe that's the point of his statement.

Give Us Your Personal Data Or Pay Full Fare

Arclight17 Re:Pepsi Max, Diet Mtn Dew, and Dr Pepper Ten (342 comments)

I disagree about the fries v chips, fries as you're thinking are the crap mcdonalds version. Whereas, fries at a decent place are seasoned and yummy. I LOVE that your local pizzeria will come back when you forget you ordered pizza because of your Parkinson's.

Give Us Your Personal Data Or Pay Full Fare

Arclight17 Re:so... (342 comments)

Close, yeah... I usually get coupons for things I'd never buy, but apparently someone with a similar profile would. At least, I expect that's what's happening, what with all the data mining that happens with their cards, and likely even through the same credit card being processed.

Give Us Your Personal Data Or Pay Full Fare

Arclight17 Re:so... (342 comments)

I generally do this as well... My work is right up the street, so I use that. And since I work at a hotel, we get all sorts of names over the course of a year. I usually decline to offer any true info... zipcode? Why yes, I happen to know one from across the country. Phone? Google voice, go ahead, call it. No one will ever pick it up. :-D

Arclight17 Re:Why is the human body so evil? (370 comments)

Rape, for one. Yes, pedantic, you specified consensual. But it's definitely evil.

Blu-ray Update Sent To User Via Credit Card Records

Arclight17 Re:Customer information sharing (526 comments)

I use my boss' card for work a couple times a week.
I've signed everything from his name to scribbling little pictures.
No one has ever said anything. And the 2x I've been IDed, I just told them it wasn't my card.
They processed it no problem. Cashiers don't much care.

Apple Can't Afford iPhone's Carrier Exclusivity

Arclight17 Re:There's more here than meets the eye (371 comments)

Generally whenever they change the contract you have an option to cancel within 1 billing cycle. Not really worth the effort (especially since you're probably already got a text plan), but feasible if you really care that much.
