Apple Asks Court To Sanction Samsung; Samsung Fires Back; More iPhone Prototypes

EveLibertine Re:The judge;'s job isn't to get livid. (404 comments)

PJ addressed this in her post at Groklaw, but very basically information that is already in the public domain can not effect the court, as the jury has already been instructed to avoid news and any other external information source containing information about the trial. Samsung's press release didn't contain anything that wasn't already in the public domain.
From Groklaw:

Remember in the SCO v. Novell trial, SCO's hair was on fire because it worried that the jury would visit Groklaw if an exhibit included the url and made Novell remove it after the judge refused to ban the exhibit itself? And why did he refuse? Because he said he relied on the jury to follow his instructions, adding that if you can't trust them to do that much, we might as well just quit.

Cisco Social Software Lets You "Stalk" Customers

EveLibertine Re:not stalking (123 comments)

Yup, if you dont want people to know the information, dont post it publicly. Seems simple enough to me.

So if I don't want to get stalked I... shouldn't go outside?

How Did Wikileaks Do It?

EveLibertine Re:GPU Parallel processing (973 comments)

Maybe something else is going on, maybe not. It was only a few months ago that slashdot was reporting that the wireless video feeds on UAVs were trivial to listen in on.

fake edit: found the orginal article here:

$26 software to "decrypt" the satellite video feed on a UAV. I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out that the US military didn't do a better job of covering itself this time too.

I hope you realize that the "image" next to the article is actually an embedded video entitled RPG Heroes are Jerks.

Should I Take Toyota's Software Update?

EveLibertine Do not operate heavy machinery. (750 comments)

The fact that this question is even being asked indicates that not much thought has really been put into it. The patch fixes a problem you haven't run into yet, and may never run in to. Maybe patching it will be inconvenient or ultimately unnecessary. But when the consequences of running into the problem that the patch fixes include injuring or killing yourself and others, where's the debate? If the consequences of running into the bug only ran a risk of you killing yourself, with no possible harm to others, then and only in that case would I recommend against installing the patch.

Church of Scientology On Trial In France

EveLibertine Re:Hell yeah - R2-45 (890 comments)

After reading about this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R2-45 in wikipedia, I can't think how can this be part of the modern, civilized world if that turns out to be a true fact.

Try it out on a Scientologist and find out!

Warrantless GPS Tracking Is Legal, Says WI Court

EveLibertine Re:A State Court Ruling on a State Law (594 comments)

So what you're saying is that because the court room building they are sitting in is older, that allows them to ignore the rulings of the Federal Courts? Interest... I have a plan!

All Solid State Drives Suffer Performance Drop-off

EveLibertine Re:All? (150 comments)

I wouldn't think so, but perhaps the mods are recognizing the necessity of insightful introspection in order to recognize one's own incompetence.

EveLibertine Re:LHC (541 comments)

Isn't one of the doomsday theories surrounding the LHC that our section of spacetime will get shoved elsewhere in the universe?

Doomsday theory? I thought that was one of the upsides.

Debian Switching From Glibc To Eglibc

EveLibertine Re:FINALLY (565 comments)

He has pissed off practically everybody in the FOSS world at least once.

Good riddance.

Because the FOSS world is full of well balanced individuals who would never get unreasonably pissed off at the drop of a hat.

12 Small Windmills Put To the Test In Holland

EveLibertine Re:Original research? (510 comments)

Agreed. Wildly inaccurate summaries from authors drawing their own conclusions that aren't based on anything resembling reality is nothing new, and certainly isn't news.

Incidentally, the bitching and the lack of salient points are the all the salient points. So mission accomplished I guess.

John Mather On the Building of the James Webb Space Telescope

EveLibertine Re:Build It in Space (78 comments)

Not enough demand. Only one space telescope.

That's not a problem. Once this is built, other projects will present themselves.

It's a problem for whomever is tossing the money around to fund these projects.

So I'm just curious, did we or can we disprove creationism?


No, it's not a valid hypothesis.
