German Data Protection Expert Warns Against Using iPhone5S Fingerprint Function

Ed The Meek Why Fear? (303 comments)

The Feds already have my prints. I gave them up voluntarily. The Feds have my SSN. What could Apple or any other company do with my prints that could hurt me? What's next? Wear rubber gloves to WalMart?

Should the U.S. bomb Syria?

Ed The Meek Why Bother? (659 comments)

I voted no because they're doing a pretty good job of killing each other already. Why throw away good bombs?

400 Million Chinese Cannot Speak Mandarin

Ed The Meek Re: Oops (562 comments)

Are you speaking of the legal variety of immigrants or illegal? I don't know of any test required of illegal immigrants. And why would you desire to wage on my ability to pass or not pass a test in comparison to an immigrant - legal or otherwise?

Ed The Meek The Interface, Stupid (196 comments)

It's all about the interface. If you can interface well with the watch to accomplish the task - it should be a winner.

California Legislature Approves Trial Program For Electronic Plates

Ed The Meek Revenue Next? (185 comments)

So does this mean a new revenue generator (concealed as a tax) is soon to be placed on vehicles? Will California now sell advertising on these new tags? You heard it from me first.

First US Inpatient Treatment Program For Internet Addiction Opening In September

Ed The Meek Re: Money Maker for the Hospital (89 comments)

....solving goes with personal responsibility. Let's just stop with all these labels and quit coming up with "psychological" excuses for personal failings. Internet addiction? Why don't we simply call it all "self control" before we have chip addictions, toilet addictions, cologne addictions and video game addictions - all covered under ObamaCare....

First US Inpatient Treatment Program For Internet Addiction Opening In September

Ed The Meek Re: Money Maker for the Hospital (89 comments)

Ed The Meek Money Maker for the Hospital (89 comments)

Why One Woman Says Sending Your Kid To Private School Is Evil

Ed The Meek I Work in a Private School (1255 comments)

Private schools are about choice. I want the freedom to send my kids to private schools, public schools or even homeschool. Why is it considered bad if I choose not to support something I believe to be bad for my kids? This reminds me of those people who push me to buy "American Made" cars - just to support a company that refuses to change for the better. The freedom of choice - choosing what's econ
