Ross Ulbricht's Lawyer Says FBI's Hack of Silk Road Was "Criminal"

Hey_Jude_Jesus I'm still waiting for the defense lawyer that says (208 comments)

Your honor my client is a scoundrel criminal and you should give him the maximum punishment for his crime. At least Slashdot should use neutral sources regrading legal proceedings. But most of the blogger media is lazy and just quotes the lawyers for each side.

Minnesota Teen Wins Settlement After School Takes Facebook Password

Hey_Jude_Jesus The parent gave permission (367 comments)

They just didn't have the parent sign the permission slip.

Asks schwit1, "How is this not a violation of the CFAA?"
No, fraud involved and not a "protected computer"

It sounds like the school was violating Facebook's Terms of Service, too.
Did the school employees ever agree to the Facebook TOS? No evidence of that.

Malaysian Flight Disappearance 'Deliberate'

Hey_Jude_Jesus This plane was stolen for money. IMHO (436 comments)

A 777-2000 is worth 230 Million dollars. The pilot(s) could sell it for $23 million dollars and live high off the hog. I think every airline better put in an automatic beacon using satellite and/or HF radio to know where every plane is at all times and the pilot(s) can't turn it off. There was another plane stolen in Angola by a mechanic ten years ago. It was never found. I'm sure that guy is living very well also. This is organized crime. IMHO. YMMV.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Convince an ISP To Bury Cable In Your Neighborhood?

Hey_Jude_Jesus It is all based on return on investment (324 comments)

The utilities have no incentive to bury cable for 22 houses. The only way you can get high speed internet in your area is to change the by-laws of the HOA to allow overhead wiring or pay for the installation with funds from the HOA. Sorry, but you're stuck with it and your only way out may be to sell your home to move some place else.

Hey_Jude_Jesus Sorry they're out of warranty (359 comments)

Most likely a capacitor problem. However if the product is out of warranty you are out of luck. The failure rate of electronics after two years is about 10%. I'm sure this falls within that standard.

US Justice Blocks Implementation of ACA Contraceptive Mandate

Hey_Jude_Jesus Why this is dangerous for workers (903 comments)

If the supreme court allows for profit corporations to deny health care insurance for religious reasons only the worker will suffer. If you work for a Jehovah's witness employer they may demand that blood transfusions be covered. If you work for a Christian Science believer they may demand only broken bones be covered by health insurance. A Christian faith healer may demand that they not be required to offer any health insurance and that those sick workers should pray the disease or injuries away with the grace of Jesus. The employee earns their health care insurance with their labor. It is no different then being paid wages. Just like the government can mandate wages and work conditions they are able to mandate health care insurance coverage for workers. This is under the general welfare and commerce clause of the constitution. A religious exemption allowance would allow the Racist Church of the Creator members not to hire non-whites based on their beliefs. In other words, if SCOTUS allows a religious exemption for employers compensating employees chaos will rein for workers across America as every religious belief will have to by law be accommodated by the government and the employee will have no recourse.

Apple Denies Helping NSA Subvert iPhone

Hey_Jude_Jesus HA HA Apple uses weasel words (284 comments)

OK so what government agency or contractor did Apple help with a back door to the iPhone? The rant about "malicious hackers" is a classic switch to get the consumer to think Apple is denying the program. But the government of the United States is not a malicious hacker.
