FTDI Removes Driver From Windows Update That Bricked Cloned Chips

Holi Re:Computer Missues Act 1990 (462 comments)

First, you do know that FTDI is a Chinese company, right?
Second, it's not that they have to ensure they don't break chips, but that they were intentionally breaking chips.

FTDI Reportedly Bricking Devices Using Competitors' Chips.

Holi Re:On the other hand... (687 comments)

No, what it's going to do is get FTDI into trouble. See we have these things called courts where you take your legitimate grievances to. You don't start resorting to vigilante justice as that tends to weaken your case and run you afoul of the law,

Debian's Systemd Adoption Inspires Threat of Fork

Holi Re:And this is why Linux will never win the deskto (548 comments)

So let me guess, You grow your own cotton which you then turn into thread, that you then weave into clothes, with which you then make your own clothes? No? then shut the fuck up you self entitled prick. Your computer was built by the same small asian people as mine.

And it's funny to hear you clamoring on about propaganda when that's all your little speech was.

And I guess you don't vote, which in my mind means you don't get to complain since you instead let the "mindless masses" control your life for you.

Or you can bring you own internet with you. If you don't like the service they provide for free, then pay for your own.

Why America Won't Match Sweden's Cheap, Fast, Competitive Internet Services

Holi Re:not complicated...monopology (346 comments)

What we didn't massively subsidize our telecoms? Wait we did, we just didn't get anything out of those subsidies. So let's see what would I prefer, better internet due to taxes, or increased CEO pay due to taxes?

US Says It Can Hack Foreign Servers Without Warrants

Holi Re:So what they are saying... (335 comments)

Actually I don;t care whether any of us agree with the statement. It's a moot point since Reid v. Covert, where the Court concluded that U.S. citizens have the same rights against the U.S. government when it acts against them abroad.

US Says It Can Hack Foreign Servers Without Warrants

Holi Re:So what they are saying... (335 comments)

>Non-citizens are not protected by the constitution and have no such rights

Where do you get this idea?

Aliens in the U.S. have essentially the same rights as citizens for many purposes because of the 5th and 14th Amendments’ language, but aliens do not have constitutional rights against the U.S. government outside its territory.
