Spanish Media Group Wants Gov't Help To Keep Google News In Spain

FauxReal Re:Imagine that! (191 comments)

Corruption is rampant nearly everywhere. Plus last time I heard Spain was a democratic regime with a parliamentary monarchy.

In the USA the MPAA and RIAA pass stupid laws all the time why do you think in Spain things would be different?

He doesn't, he was telling that to the naive person he was responding who thinks it should be different.

Creationism Conference at Michigan State University Stirs Unease

FauxReal Re:Why at a place of learning? (1007 comments)

I like where you're going with this. They can be documented and studied. Their arguments can be deconstructed and debated. There could be another conference sometime afterward to discuss what has been learned from studying the creationists' conference.

FauxReal What format is the station going to run? (229 comments)

It would be awesome if they ran a digital version of the Radio Free Hawaii format... it was a 90s station in Hawaii that let listeners vote via ballot boxes. They had amazing music.

Google Fiber Expands To Olathe, Kansas

FauxReal Re:Olathe (120 comments)

I'm curious... have you seen the terms of their service agreement? I'm wondering if you have to agree that Google can parse the unencrypted parts of your data stream for advertising/user metrics (for anonymizing and sale)?

FauxReal Re:They've got this backwards. (117 comments)

They would find it much more lucrative if they could figure out a way to grow replacement KIDNEYS.

But imagine the size of a kidney grown inside a mouse tooth, they'd have to stitch together thousands to get anything useful!

Python Trademark Filer Ignorant of Python?

FauxReal Re:No, that is not possible (261 comments)

No...no...the parent is absolutely correct. Suits are only interested in the bottom line, not the goodwill of the costumers, nor any one else.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure filing this trademark was a waste of assets.I don't even think "any publicity is good publicity" works in this instance. These guys were clueless morons with no business sense.

Analytics Company Settles Charges For User Tracking

FauxReal Re:Lawyers (43 comments)

Their contribution was to help pave the way for the lawsuit to disappear. Sounds like a win/win between them and the defendants. Also, the plaintiffs get a settlement. A technical win/win/win. I'm sure everyone will spend the next weekend at their winter beach houses celebrating with some fine caviar and champagne relieved to see that privacy is once again on their side.

US House Science Committee Member: Evolution Is a Lie From Hell

FauxReal Re:Outta here (1113 comments)


Fund his opponent in the next election. Put in some time in getting the competition elected.

And amazingly enough the next election is this November and he's running without a democrat (or any other as far as I know) opponent. It's being handed to him.

Warner hires investigator in Pirate Bay trial

FauxReal FauxReal writes  |  more than 6 years ago

FauxReal (653820) writes "A head of the preliminary investigation in the Pirate Bay trial, chief police investigator Jim Keyzer has had a leading role in the prosecution. In the upcoming trial he is expected to be a key witness of high credibility. New information reveals he has been employed since March 16 this year by Warner Bros., one of the plaintiffs in the prosecution against The Pirate Bay.

The Pirate Bay has issued a press release regarding the matter. (English & Swedish)

Keyzer was also heading an investigation where The Pirate Bay sued some of the major media corporations for data trespassing. That case was recently canceled by him."
