Senator Wants 'Terrorist' Label On Blogs

Evil Shabazz Re:Yea... (370 comments)

Lieberman has never amounted to anything more than a "flag politician" - one that flaps uselessly in whatever political winds are blowing for the day. The problem is that the unconstitutional committee seniority system in the Senate combined with the bacon he brings back to his campaign financiers (note, I didn't say voting constituents) means he'll never get replaced - you have to wait until he retires. The same is true of Pelosi, Frank, Boehner, and McConnell. They're all useless career politicians who care nothing about you, me, or anything other than their next election campaign. DOWN WITH THE CAREER POLITICIAN. SUPPORT CONGRESSIONAL TERM LIMITS.

Well, at least these might be less in the way when all the fat, lazy people at Wal-Mart have to use them to get around to buy their cheese doodles and soda pop.

Google CEO Confirms Social Integration

Evil Shabazz Re:Mixed Feelings (96 comments)

I don't so much want a Facebook killer, as that just means the sheep have moved on to the next advertising grazing field... I'd much rather people get back to actual social interaction instead of this social facade for the lazy and uninteresting. Instead of facilitating social interaction, Facebook "replaces" it for a large number of people. People get so used to these internet social norms that they don't know how to interact with each other in real life anymore.

Google CEO Confirms Social Integration

Evil Shabazz Re:Uh, no thanks. (96 comments)

Actually, the part that annoys me more about the new "social" intarwebs is all the morons complaining about people knowing they're a Justin Bieber fan after they posted the same on their "marked private" Facebook account. That said, I do hate things like when Google makes GoogleTalk sign-in automatic when you go to Gmail unless you turn the setting off explicitly. They made the same mistake with that stupid Buzz crap. I anticipate with Google that I'll have to opt-out rather than opt-in with this social shit too. That's Google's MO of late.

The real problem is the mass assumption that we all want to be involved with this social networking bullshit on the internet. I got over the idea of having a web page all about me back before Netscape died. It's all just narcissistic egomania. People don't need these damned webpages to keep in touch. Facebook users are just sheep following the latest advertising phase. I do just fine keeping up with all of my friends with (shock) email and a phone. Hell, I even see them in person sometimes! People should try it!

Except, you see, to provide more tweet porn for the media-masturbation cycle. Nothing gets a journalist harder than a twit.

Lenovo To Launch Chinese Gaming Platform Called Ebox

Evil Shabazz Re:If it's chinese (71 comments)

"develop a platform" and "build" from the summary were incorrectly translated from the original Mandarin press release. It's a common mistake, since the character for "develop, build" is also the character for "rip off."

Searching For Backdoors From Rogue IT Staff

Evil Shabazz Re:Three words (328 comments)

I found the best way to survive the scary lay-off periods is to position yourself as the go-to guy/gal for fixing other peoples' batshit crazy setups. If your management thinks of you as capable of getting into unfamiliar systems, figuring them out, and repairing/improving them - they're not letting you go anywhere, except on vacation to keep you happy.

Searching For Backdoors From Rogue IT Staff

Evil Shabazz Re:Three words (328 comments)

Indeed. In my experience, the folks who talk about making systems "so complex only they know how to fix them" don't actually really know what they're doing anyway. The real truth is usually that they've got things set up so batshit crazy trying to hide their mediocrity in this "you can't fire me now!" excuse.
