Go Daddy Reverses Course On SOPA

Calgary Computer Impressive (330 comments)

Wow, I'm impressed that people were able to affect Godaddy's support of Sopa. I see Sopa as a way that the US government will start censoring all sites, eroding our freedom.

Facebook Holding Back Personal Data

Calgary Computer Re:Facebook sends CD's? (125 comments)

I agree. We are not supposed to question what our country is doing. But I would like to see what information Facebook is collecting on us.

Dutch Court Rules WiFi Hacking Not a Criminal Offense

Calgary Computer Re:Wireless Computer often Switch Routers (234 comments)

I should add that impersonating someone else by using their router when committing a crime should be a criminal offense.

Dutch Court Rules WiFi Hacking Not a Criminal Offense

Calgary Computer Wireless Computer often Switch Routers (234 comments)

I think it's a only a small violation, if one at all, to connect to someone else's router if it is unsecured, if you don't violate their privacy by hacking into their computer and reading their files. We live in an apartment building and left our router unsecured so other people could use it if they wanted, but it got too slow so we secured it. Now we let one neighbor use it by giving her the password. Sometimes laptops will connect to any available network, if one's own network is down. Hacking into a router and changing the settings is more of a violation, but I'm not sure it's a criminal one. Especially if the person who set up the security on the router used the manufacturer's default password. More of a nuisance than anything else. I wouldn't want this kid to do prison time for that. A misdemeanor or a warning for the first offense.

Obama Eyeing Internet ID For Americans

Calgary Computer No Internet ID!! (487 comments)

The best part of the Internet is its lack of censorship and the freedom of speech it fosters. I am against any type of Internet ID. If we're not careful only certain websites and certain content will be allowed and individual freedoms will be further eroded.

Nintendo Warns 3D Games Can Ruin Children's Eyes

Calgary Computer What is the research? (229 comments)

What makes Sony think 3D may hurt the growth of children's eyes? Is there any research? And of course we should all take regular breaks from 3D or any other type of electronic games and maybe, say, toss a ball in the park, or something.

Intel Intros 310 Series Mini SSDs

Calgary Computer Re: Performance vs. size (122 comments)

I suppose a small size that performs well is impressive because smaller and lighter are attributes prized in laptops along with it's performance. Although performance is still the main quality we all want..
