Sadly they're supposedly not saving much money doing this either.

Mt. Gox Gone? Apparent Theft Shakes Bitcoin World

Gr33nJ3ll0 Re:Vive le Galt! (695 comments)

What part of the current system do you think is fair, and gets resources to the most in need? It does a great job of moving resources around, and storing value, but nothing about it is fair, balanced, or guarantees distribution to the places best or helpful for society.

Shutdown Cost the US Economy $24 Billion

Gr33nJ3ll0 Re:Let me guess (767 comments)

Yes, because both sides are always equal in culability. Just some random examples off the top of my head: Mugger/Muggee, Murder/Murdered, Rapist, Rape Victim. Yulp, definitely a LOT of blame to go around....

Work Halted On Neal Stephenson's Kickstarted Swordfighting Video Game

Gr33nJ3ll0 Re:Yet another story... (124 comments)

I put in my $20, and wished it Godspeed. They did deliver a prototype, and it's sorta usable, so they didn't just take the money and run. I'm not upset.

Gr33nJ3ll0 Re:Yet another story... (124 comments)

Most of those sources are risk averse, resulting in a lot of look alike products. It's the more harebrained schemes like this one that Kickstarter is all about. The ones that the establishment won't look at while they pump out COD XIXIX11 and it's related cash cows.

NSA Broke Privacy Rules Thousands of Times Per Year, Audit Finds

Gr33nJ3ll0 Re:so basically, what we knew (312 comments)

Most of the liberal groups were already established, so 90% of the organizations applying were of one political persuasion. Further it's pretty clear they were trying to skirt the rules, and didn't have the institutional memory to know how to do it right.

No the IRS was not abusing political opponents either. Rather it was the usual incompetent government we've all come to know and love.

Administration Seeks To Make Unauthorized Streaming A Felony

Gr33nJ3ll0 Re:Why not? (398 comments)

While you have a good point, I think it also needs to be considered, that the world is watching this one, and while the charge is pretty light compared to the resources expended, it would be a huge embarrassment for the British if he just walked away because they weren't watching.

Yes, you can mark your luggage as delicate, and it does result in different treatment, but not to the better. :)

Don't Panic, But We've Passed Peak Apple (and Google, and Facebook)

Gr33nJ3ll0 Re:Innovation only from Google, FB, Apple ?? (307 comments)

The "World"? Not much, but I suspect they've got some interesting back end systems to handle all that traffic. Too bad they're not sharing.

N. Carolina May Ban Tesla Sales To Prevent "Unfair Competition"

Gr33nJ3ll0 Re:The best part of the article is at the bottom (555 comments)

Honestly, I don't think there's anything on the books to prevent a company from opening a store that directly competes with an indie that used to sell their product. So why should the car dealerships be any different? If the car company thinks they can do a better job that way, and I agree, I spend my money with them, if not I spent it with the dealership. That's capitalism, which is what really bothers me about this, is that it reveals the hypocrisy of the Republican claims to be against regulations that stifle business.

Microsoft's Most Profitable Mobile Operating System: Android

Gr33nJ3ll0 Re:Fuck off (309 comments)

No, but you CAN blame them for taking advantage of the legal system as it stands. If the 1% manages to pass a bill tomorrow that makes it legal to shoot anybody who has less the $10K in assets that doesn't make it right, and it doesn't make the people who follow the law moral.
