Are Flickr Images Abused By Foreign Businesses?

Iffie Piss off internet rent seekers (227 comments)

Ok, open up the demand for strict image management on the internet and the internet as we know it is dead. A uk judge ruled that the theft of Zynga credits (for farm ville) constituted a real theft of real property. In that sense the reuse of an image online is theft. But the deeper point is ownership, If you put an image online to be served to the public you no longer own it period. It is on the server, it is on every computer that views it, you gave it away. All rules about copyright are simply extortion schemes, if you want to earn money from it show it to a closed audience at some auction site.

GM Loses Money On Every Volt Built

Iffie Agoracentric model (471 comments)

Its called glaring incompetence. But in today's society we are all kept alive with energy we don't replace. We have lost our mutual value and GM shows how disgusting the theatricals can get about the 'imposibility of the transition'. Oil = money and we all need oil because of freaking moronoic lying scumbag companies like GM. We need a localized energy, food and skill autonomous patchwork of commuities to develop asap. That or we will all run into the peak oil wall of death in our massive Chevy Volt.

Thumbprints Used To Check Books Out of School Library

Iffie There is no Privacy (355 comments)

It is sickening how technologists assume the best in people while taking precautions for the worst all the time. We are approching a time where everything anyone has ever learned or been exposed to is known. Grooming and vetting, unexcidental experiences etc. can all be arranged if needed..We may be past the point of no return, and may only become witness to the consolidation of basicly autonomous techonolgy determining our lives..

Sudden Demand For Logicians On Wall Street

Iffie Lies, Damn Lies and Theft! (525 comments)

Complexity in these algorithms is only to hide the fact that the are FRONT RUNNING trades, they have servers that are directly next to the ones performing normal trades and using the speed that affords they put themselves between buyers and sellers. Goldman Sachs steals 100 million USD every day. To hide this theft they claim sophistication. Same story with derivatives, they are FRAUD. to hide the fraud they are made 'complex' using the work of so called Quants. It is thieving and it is nonsense.

Geostationary GPS Satellite Galaxy 15 Out of Control

Iffie Re:Stabile Lagrange point? (379 comments)

Why would you lose momentum if forces cancel out? Nothing that moves will stay at a lagrange point. They are not sinks, the sources of gravitational force are the sinks..

Geostationary GPS Satellite Galaxy 15 Out of Control

Iffie Stabile Lagrange point? (379 comments)

Do all rocks collect on the mountian ridges? As fr as I know sattelites do not end up in the Lagrange points, or those points would already be taken by millions of years of dust collected..If you start there you won't move, but to my knowledge those are unstabile equilibria, so if you are not there, you fall to either the Earth or the Sun or the Moon..

CRTC Approves Usage Based Billing In Canada

Iffie Same difference (381 comments)

It should work both ways, and is at best extortionist. The net work has a capacity limit which every paying user now experiences, in the new scheme this fixed limit is cut in two tiers, one subscribed to, the other for extra pay. In the end people pay more for the same service, and the service is made artificially scarce to the benefit of people that don't pay extra. There should be a law against this type of arrangement. You dont'go to a restaurant and get served to little for the menu price to then get offered the extra you want at double the price. Shit, you do in some cases..

Former Head of CIA Think Tank Talks Privacy, Technology

Iffie Corporatism Creeping in (147 comments)

I is not an argument that because private enteriprses violate privacy, government shoudl as well, also the argument that that mekse them more efficient is nonsense. Our government can automatically look up our personal data data in Holland, with consent, and that shoul dbe enough Any resoning based on the premis that it is gong so well is a complete lie, the US is broke, both government and private sector..

Aral Sea May Recover; Dead Sea Needs a Lifeline

Iffie Re:Dead Sea Desalination Potential (131 comments)

I'm not talking about hydropower, I'm talking a new technology. You can desalinate at no cost basically. I am looking for serious interested parties. Of course saline in moist air out is much better than fresh water in moist air out! Of course your suggestion to generate energy from the drop is quite brilliant in itself! ;-)

Aral Sea May Recover; Dead Sea Needs a Lifeline

Iffie Dead Sea Desalination Potential (131 comments)

You can build a desalination plant and use the dead sea as a power source..Sounds wierd but is completely possible using new technology. Part of that plan would be to pipe seawater to the dead sea, over a stretch of about 30 miles. Want to know more? Contact me.

From Turbines and Straw, Danish Self-Sufficiency

Iffie Energy density my ass! (183 comments)

These metrics are a way to put a barrier up for the alternative energy business. Of course it is possible to generate all energy locally. The 1 dollar per watt myth does not count for coal fired power plants. If you win a race are you going to let an expert tell you your steps per second where under par?

Can We Build a Human Brain Into a Microchip?

Iffie Educated guess : No (598 comments)

As a former neuroscientist I would say NO. The brain is not build out of static elements, they themselves show dna/rna expression variation due to their own activities and neuromodulation. A fixed system can doe certain processing, but it has to be reconfigurable and have some software oversight to be as flexible as out brains..

UK's FSA Finds No Health Benefits To Organic Food

Iffie Not the point (921 comments)

You eat organic food because you don't like the methods of food production, not because the food is healthier.They did not tak into account the amount of pecticides kept out of the environment. It is the same line of attack as saying carbon dioxide concentrations are not poisenous.

Iffie (1410897) writes "Google grabs all posted data of forms on my website. It leads to double entries in the sites db. I think that is spying and intrusion of privacy. I wrote a post about it on my website climatebabes.com. Does it strike you of anybody else as odd that Google inc. could snif at any info anybody enters on you site, without you being informed about it?"

What if internet stopped?

Iffie Iffie writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Iffie writes "The US economic outlook is supergrim and I would guess sooner or later this will impact the internet. Many people will cut back on their subscriptions, and sunsequently the cashflow for the service providers will slink. What if major bandwidth provider defaults? What are the financial weak spots of the internet?"
