Draconian DRM Revealed In Windows 7

Freedom451 MS intends to buy the content companies (1127 comments)

Thus the first phase of the project plan is to show that they can lock it up & retard copying (for most users most of the time).

The second phase will be to buy the content producers & the content. Then they will start seriously blocking YouTube, etc.

People think Google is just being cute with Android, but it is actually survival.

Freedom451 Re:Wages are expenses (2369 comments)

Obviously we're not investing enough in teaching reading. Have you ever paid corporate taxes? If you have, and you paid taxes on your gross - again, so sorry you can't read.

Review of Discovery Institute's Evolution Textbook

Freedom451 Well, you remember how it all started? (756 comments)

We evolved in a world where it took about 20 hours/week to get everything we needed. People that bent their head down over a big leaf scratching symbols for very long got eaten by lions.

Pretty much, we're evolved to be beach bums, and all this 60 hour weeks doing the same thing in the same place all day long is a mental illness we only lapsed into in the last 10,000 years, a bare millesecond in evolutionary time.

I blame it on the women, myself - she kept complaining about the skin hut falling down until finally he got p'o'd and went figured out how to build with wood and stone just to get some peace.

But then he couldn't move the hut anymore, and he had to start planting grasses and tubers around the hut for food. Then his buddy's wife made him build a stone hut next door, then her friends got on their men, and pretty soon you had a town, and that was the end of the good old days...its been little pink houses ever since.
