Canada Courts Quash Gov't Decision On Globalive
Typical in this goddamned backward country. We should be thanking our lucky stars we have cell phone companies like Bell and Rogers to protect us from those evil American companies and their low prices.
Pirated App Sold On Mac App Store
Go fuck yourself you pedantic asshole.
I will explain what this sentence means to you now. Basically, it means the sentence you quoted is perfectly understandable. However, since you're a pedantic asshole, if everything isn't written to your supposed perfect standards you go into a blind rage and mash at your keyboard, hooting and hollering and generally doing what pedantic assholes do.
So go fuck yourself you pedantic asshole.
Aerospace Engineer Named Lego Czar
You forget the Czar of all Legoland gets his own castle, and a legion of lego servants.. and lego harem.
Your Face Will Soon Be In Facebook Ads
Seeing as how Canada's already taken Facebook to task for their disregard for our privacy laws it'll be interesting how this plays out up here. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that a click box doesn't constitute a legal model release form in this country.
FTC Proposes Do Not Track List For the Web
"a quick mention that this number is on the Federal Do Not Call list sends them into a near panic state, scrambling to hang up"
Really? I've telemarketed before in my dark past. When people told me they were on the do not call list I would say 'I don't care' and would go into the pitch. Then they'd hang up on me. It was just fun when people thought they could thwart me by being smarmy or clever. I hated my job and all those who I had to deal with on the phone. So anybody who tried stuff like the 'do not call list' automatically wound up back in the caller registry. Your best bet is to just hang up the phone.
US Army Develops Tooth Cleaning Gum
Read the article idiot.
"The report also explains that US Army researchers developed a protein that attacks the bacteria that causes plaque, which can lead to gum disease. This protein can easily be incorporated into the gum, making it a serious alternative to toothbrush and toothpaste, the researchers claim. "
Man Patents Self-Burying Coffin
Trouble is cemeteries are green space in cities that developers can't get their hands on.
Gotta take what you can get these days.
Can Twitter and Facebook Deal With Their Dead?
Let us cross over the river and rest under the shade of the trees.... also my facebook password is tellaphilltogoforward.
Google Nabs Patent To Monitor Your Cursor Movement
Maybe that explains why I keep getting ads for green paint and nipple rings.
Cell Phone Interception At Def Con
From the blog post...
"It is unlikely that any 911 service can be provided, however a best effort will be made to connect any emergency calls to a suitable local destination."
Well let's hope your best effort doesn't result in someone's death. That generally doesn't bode well for tech demos.
The Possibility of Paradox-Free Time Travel
Wow Kdawson did you choose that red colour all by yourself? This surely is big important news. Seeing as time travel is possibly the most pressing scientific issue of the day. Plus the inclusion of non specific aspects of quantum mechanics really lends a sense credibility to the theory.
I used quantum mechanics to type this message out.
Why Designers Hate Crowdsourcing
Christ you're stupid.
GOP Senators Move To Block FCC On Net Neutrality
Sort of off topic. But, do politicians ever refer to people as citizens anymore? Seems we're only ever called consumers or voters anymore.
How the Mozilla Sniffer Backdoor Was Discovered
Good job not actually telling the name of the offending plugin in the article blurb there.
'A new severe bug in mozilla is allowing hooligans to steal your passwords. But we won't tell you which one until after the break!'
How To Get Rejected From the App Store
You know full well they just posted a story about Frank Zappa!
Give it a rest! Slashdot's clearly focusing on proper science and technology stories.
FTC Staff Discuss a Tax on Electronics To Support the News Business
The wagon wheel people were at least smart enough to adapt to the changing industry. They tried to leapfrog automobiles all together and developed rocket engines. Sadly it marked a messy end to the leisurely carriage ride. However, it did kick start the space race.
Giant Plumes of Oil Forming Below the Gulf's Surface
"even if they stopped it today i wont trust seafood anymore ever"
I don't trust it already. The whole industry is regulated by old one eyed fishermen in Salwesters who just spit on the floor all the time.
CRTC Approves Usage Based Billing In Canada
I take it the previous billing Bell Canada did based on downloading was actually illegal. And, now it's not? What am I missing here?
I remember quite clearly getting hit with extra 'usage' charges on my internet bill every month. That was well over a year and a half ago.
Pediatricians Call For Choke-Proof Hot Dogs
No. Strangely it's only hot dogs. If you look back through history nobody has ever choked to death on anything until hot dogs were invented. Some say it was a plot by the government to eliminate the game of baseball.
Can You Trust Chinese Computer Equipment?
It just occurred to me that my five string banjo was made in China! Cripes almighty. They've probably already stolen my patented method of playing 'Baltimore Fire' with a slide at the beginning.
