Could Twitter Have Stopped the Media's Rush To War In Iraq Ten Years Ago?

Cute and Cuddly Re:No (456 comments)

What about the US government supporting dictators until they are no longer useful and then inventing a bunch of lies to start a war to kill them (And steal lots of petrol in the process)?

Cute and Cuddly $20 a month for 80% pornography? (154 comments)

Wouldn't it be better to improve the content of the internet so that it becomes a real tool of knowledge for those that already have it instead of distributing more pornography for what it seems to be a reduced cost for people in developed countries but is higher that the average monthly income in several poor countries? I can't see people spending their whole monthly incomes to connect to the internet, specially those that cannot afford a computer. Perhaps we should go one step at a time and help those less fortunate increase their incomes so they can feed themselves and educate their children. Then, perhaps they will make the decision themselves when they have the ability to do so.

Rand Paul Launches a Filibuster Against Drone Strikes On US Soil

Cute and Cuddly Re:The enemy of my enemy (693 comments)

Sounds like you value life only if the life we are talking about is an US citizen. What makes you think you are more worthy than a Latino or an Muslim or any other person? Perhaps the typical yankee arrogance that makes everyone in that country believe you have the right to control the world. Wake up, your government is a plutocratic / genocidal organization that will do whatever it takes to turn on a profit for the rich. If they need to kill a yank, so be it and all your dreams of living in a democratic society (You do not live in one by the way) will not save you.

Cute and Cuddly In a country like the US.... (1106 comments)

If someone has not bothered to get an education in a country where there are plenty of opportunities, perhaps they should be getting paid the same wages as people get in Zimbawe. That would be a motivating factor to get up and do something

The Malware Industrial Complex

Cute and Cuddly I fail to see any difference (32 comments)

The US government has been acting that way for as long as I know. The only diffrence is that they are using software now. You could well argue that the US government is on one hand complaining about terrorism and on the other hand, the CIA commit numerous acts of terrorism in multiple countries (Kidnaps, renditions, torture, etc). They also support other countries that commit serious murderous attacks on civilians to steal their land (In case you do not notice, I'm refering to Israel). Nothing has changed, they are just using a different tool and they are being as two faced as they have always been.

Is the Era of Groundbreaking Science Over?

Cute and Cuddly Re:This ain't the first time ... (470 comments)

The flying car should not be a problem. The only reason why we do not have it yet is not because of technical dificulties. We can hardly manage driving a car in two dimensions. Try to add an extra dimension fotr the movement of your flying car and see what happens. Thiink about the traffic controll systems. Think what we have to have instead of traffic lights (That some people still do not pay any attention to). When you have worked out that, then come up with a flying car

US employee 'outsourced job to China'

Cute and Cuddly Cute and Cuddly writes  |  about 2 years ago

Cute and Cuddly (2646619) writes "A security check on a US company has reportedly revealed one of its staff was outsourcing his work to China.

The software developer, in his 40s, is thought to have spent his workdays surfing the web, watching cat videos on YouTube and browsing Reddit and eBay.

He reportedly paid just a fifth of his six-figure salary to a company based in Shenyang to do his job."

Steve Jobs Wanted Google Search Eradicated From iOS

Cute and Cuddly Cute and Cuddly writes  |  about 2 years ago

Cute and Cuddly (2646619) writes "Bloomberg Businessweek’s analytical dissection of Apple post-iPhone 5 launch is mostly full of things we already knew: Tim Cook is different to Steve Jobs. Apple is still doing phenomenally well. Everyone hates Apple Maps. But one thing that stood out was the fact that Steve Jobs was so incensed with Google that he not only wanted to remove Maps from iOS, but also Google search. Whoa."

ASIC seeks power to read your emails

Cute and Cuddly (2646619) writes "The Australian Securities and Investment Commission has called for sweeping powers so it can access phone call and internet data for its war on white-collar crime.

Not only does the authority want the powers to intercept the times, dates and details of telecommunications information, it also wants to access the contents of emails, social media chats and text messages.

Water in Mars

Cute and Cuddly Cute and Cuddly writes  |  about 2 years ago

Cute and Cuddly (2646619) writes "The NASA rover Curiosity has beamed back pictures of bedrock that suggest a fast-moving stream, possibly waist-deep, once flowed on Mars.

There have been previous signs that water existed on the red planet long ago, but the images released on Thursday showing pebbles rounded off, likely by water, offered the most convincing evidence so far of an ancient streambed.

There was "a vigorous flow on the surface of Mars," said chief scientist John Grotzinger of the California Institute of Technology. "We're really excited about this.""

Julian Assange an "Enemy of State"

Cute and Cuddly Cute and Cuddly writes  |  about 2 years ago

Cute and Cuddly (2646619) writes "THE US military has designated Julian Assange and WikiLeaks as enemies of the United States — the same legal category as the al-Qaeda terrorist network and the Taliban insurgency.

Declassified US Air Force counter-intelligence documents, released under US freedom-of-information laws, reveal that military personnel who contact WikiLeaks or WikiLeaks supporters may be at risk of being charged with "communicating with the enemy", a military crime that carries a maximum sentence of death.
