Australian Court Blocks Sales of Samsung Galaxy Tablet

Crock23A I have a question (158 comments)

Apple is getting all of these PRELIMINARY injunctions; which potentially hurt Samsung big-time in the long run. If Samsung ends up winning the actual court battle, does Apple have to compensate them somehow?

Netflix Signs Exclusive Deal With Dreamworks

Crock23A 2013!!!! (199 comments)

According to the article, no streaming content from this deal until 2013. Maybe I'll reactivate my account sometime around then but in all likelihood, I'll have found a much better alternative by then.

Mozilla Issues Do-Not-Track Guide For Advertisers

Crock23A I have a better guide (74 comments)

Install 2 add-ons. No Script and Ad Block Plus. No Script really opened my eyes to how much crap is tied to some web pages and also how google and facebook know every move I make.

Is Your Antivirus Made By the Chinese Government?

Crock23A Racism (196 comments)

I see a lot of anti-Chinese stuff these days. It almost amounts to racism. People seem to hate on the Chinese because they're Chinese. Won't this mindset just further propagate any tension that already exists between our countries?

All Star Trek TV Coming To Netflix

Crock23A watch in chronological order (272 comments)

Is there a list somewhere that shows an order of episodes based on star-date chronology? There was a lot of overlapping between TNG, DS9 and VOY.

I used to be able to send an instant message over AOL that would cause the other user's CD-ROM drive to open. It was hilarious while it lasted. There were similar exploits that would boot them off the service.

Motorcyclist Wins Taping Case Against State Police

Crock23A What about the gun? (485 comments)

Who cares about the wiretapping. Isn't the real issue the fact that the cop pulled a gun BEFORE even identifying himself? IANAL but in my opinion, that is a big NONO. And he got caught on video. Why does this guy still collect a paycheck of tax-payer money? Skip to 3:10 and watch for yourself.
