Compromise Struck On Cellphone Unlocking Bill

KrazyDave Grassley? (74 comments)

Sen. Charles "Chuck-a-buck" Grassley, sucking on a huge blunt, exhaled a plume of potent Mary Jane smoke and coughed out, "Freeeeeeeedom for phooooones!" before expiring from a massive coronary, still grasping his iPhone 4S in his steel grip. Please send donations to NORML in lieu of flowers.

Supreme Court Rules Cell Phones Can't Be Searched Without a Warrant

KrazyDave If you have nothing to hide... (249 comments)

...then why worry, hmm? Maybe you have some illegal pr0n or plans for a terror attack? Only people trying to hide something worry about this.

How Secret Partners Expand NSA's Surveillance Dragnet

KrazyDave Thanks to M0slms, this is the only way (63 comments)

A lot of hipsters and other wannabe "'Murica - haters" are loose and easy with their criticism like so much diarrhea, but the sad fact is that if NSA monitoring saves us from just one more tragedy, then it's worth it.

Solar Impulse 2 Makes First Flight

KrazyDave it's going to crash on the global flight (34 comments)

Very nice, but I doubt it will make it around the globe. Probably will be shot down depending on which 3rd-worlders it flies over.

KrazyDave Because /b/ (79 comments)

Absolutely no good has ever come from that vile cesspool of depravity, although the live, streaming suicide of that Norwegian guy was pretty novel.

WSJ: Americans' Phone Bills Are Going Up

KrazyDave Will sav USD 240/yr., + unlimited + free iPhone 5 (273 comments)

Was on TMOUS for 10 yrs., limited data, shared minutes, initially because it was the best family plan with no roaming charges for about USD 164/4 lines. Then when TMOUS went "no-contract", I actually paid early termination fees for 2 of the lines to go "no contract" and it was well worth it. Now there are never overage charges, all unlimited text, talk and data (one line for my wife's iPhone has unlimited high-speed data at extra charge), 4 lines for less than USD 120. When my wife got the installment plan to buy an iPhone 5 last year for an extra 20/mo., our bill went up to a little less than we were paying. So essentially, beside the aforementioned unlimited upgrades, we got an extra unlocked iPhone 5 for my wife for the same amount we were paying previously and when its paid off in 24 mos., our bill will go down 20/month again. I sure hope no one buys TMOUS because they will nix these crazy pro-consumer plans in a heartbeat. Not affiliated with T-Mo in any way except as a happy customer.

Target Has Major Credit Card Breach

KrazyDave Wouldn't be surprised if Wal-Mart was... (191 comments)

...financing the hacking (hidden by many layers) to target Target as a form of corporate espionage. Just the bad press alone is worth literally billions in the final run-up to Christmas (and Kwanza, of course) spending.

This Whole Bitcoin Thing Could Be Big, Says Bank of America

KrazyDave Bitcoins will always suffer their reputation... (276 comments)

because there is no secure entity backing them up. Bitcoin are the mathematical equivalent of ca. 1999 Beanie Babies.

Plastic Waste Threatens Marine Diversity

KrazyDave Paper or plastic? (48 comments)

In America there are tight regulations of the manufacturing, and transport on top of EPA. When you request a plastic bag, it's clean and it's fate is clean, plus we have profuse kandfill space available that is also tightly managed and regulated.

It is the "emerging" economies led by China and India who dump unregulated waste including heavy metals and other toxins, have dirty-technolgy, and unregulated factories that spew millions of tons of untreated air pollution and who also dump millions of tons of their plastic garbage directly into our oceans.

So you jackass hipsters at Trader Joe's keep using your filthy little burlap bags and thinking that you're making a difference while you turn a blind eye to the ecological atrocities committed by your we-are-the-world brothers.

With Burning Teslas In the News Ford Recalls Almost 140,000 Escapes

KrazyDave Teva-wearing-to-show-off-his-toes Ashton Kutcher: (293 comments)

Likes Tesla enough to feature one in an episode of 'Two And A Half men", so it must be fabulous to the knuckle-dragging, self-important, pseudo-intellectual, "Big Bang Theory"-watching sluggard hipsters who idolize and follow new-age 'messiahs" such as Obama and Musk.

North Korea Developing Electromagnetic Pulse Weapons

KrazyDave Re:And let's not forget... (191 comments)

Let's hope that the US never "achieve(s) democracy." Democracy is mob rule. Our Founding Fathers had the forethought to create a Republic to protect us from tyrants who would fool the public into surrendering their freedom. Oh, wait. We have Obama.

Blockbuster To Close Remaining US Locations

KrazyDave Ding dong the witch is dead! (419 comments)

Their horrid business model that started in the early '80s when every corner store, supermarket and chains rented VHS tapes was not only overdue to be marked for death, but also caused wasted resources (driving to Blockbuster to rent, then driving back to return), was usurious (arbitrary, unjust and possibly illegal "late fees") plus they had a shitty selection, anyway with no adult section. Good riddance..
