Bank Security Software EULA Allows Spying On Users

NaCh0 Re:How crazy (135 comments)

There's a big difference between scanning files and collecting them.

When they find a suspicious binary running and attacking other computers on the network, how do you propose to examine it without collecting it?

You are just proving my point that alarmists know nothing about how IT works.

Bank Security Software EULA Allows Spying On Users

NaCh0 How crazy (135 comments)

Security scanning software that looks at all of my files? How will I be violated next? /sarcasm

Seriously, these privacy alarmists are kooks. They have no idea how IT works.

Civil Rights Groups Divided On Net Neutrality

NaCh0 Actually a smart strategy for comcast (127 comments)

This is both cynical and genius on Comcast's part. For no good reason, people still listen to race hustlers like Jesse Jackson. Feed him some money and watch the protester buses and media circus roll into town. Facts will no longer matter.

Mozilla Launches Browser Built For Developers

NaCh0 Not going to happen (74 comments)

Sorry Mozilla, you have poisoned the well for many developers. The whole Brendan Eich situation and your cowering to the social justice warriors makes me not only avoid your products, but actively remind people that you are a sleazy political organization first, with a browser tool far second. Google's heart isn't much better but at least they have tact in their public relations.

Miss a Payment? Your Car Stops Running

NaCh0 These people are doing it to themselves (907 comments)

You know if you have paid or not so the control is solely in your hands. It's a stereotype that you're poor because you are irresponsible. Don't be the stereotype.

And if you're really in medical need, ambulances will come pick you up.

Airbnb To Hand Over Data On 124 Hosts To New York Attorney General

NaCh0 Avoid New York (149 comments)

Every time I see a story like this or the problems Tesla has in NY, I can't help but think of the "New York is open for business" commercials flooded on the TV news channels. One of the most taxed and regulated states in the nation claiming to be business friendly.

Fuck Noo Yawk.

Social Security Administration Joins Other Agencies With $300M "IT Boondoggle"

NaCh0 Missing Key Information (144 comments)

Until the vendors who are building this system get their company name in the headlines, the status quo will continue.

At least France is a western country.

Just wait until ICANN goes full international. The fun will really begin.

FWD.us: GOP Voters To Be Targeted By Data Scientists

NaCh0 Secure Border Before Amnesty (422 comments)

While Republican voters might appear to be for immigration reform by the polls, their idea of reform is vastly different than what these people are proposing.

They first want a secure border... meaning no flood of new illegals, drugs, gangs, etc.

They clearly feel lied to by democrats saying the border is the most secure ever. Just look at the 50,000 children who have just crossed since January. If you can't stop children, how do you plan on stopping the "bad guys"?

Republicans would also support more work visas -- both skilled and unskilled. They don't care about having more immigrants here. They want an orderly process which no administration has been able to provide.

Obama's blanket amnesty isn't too popular but most Republicans would be up for the debate if they were confident the problem wouldn't keep compounding itself with new illegals.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Released

NaCh0 Very excited announcement (231 comments)

Their use of bold and italics in the announcement makes me feel like I'm reading an old John C Dvorak pcmag column.

Chicago Robber Caught By Facial Recognition Sentenced To 22 Years

NaCh0 Re:22 years for theft, even with a gun, is harsh (143 comments)

Obviously this criminal's previous arrests didn't serve as a wake up call. This sentence quite appropriately protects the public -- specifically the next group of innocents that this guy decides to rob at gunpoint. It also teaches the guy's children that crimes have consequences.

Misogyny, Entitlement, and Nerds

NaCh0 Dear Arthur Chu (1198 comments)

Writing anti-male missives won't get you laid.

Hopping on the misogyny bandwagon will not get you laid.

Until you understand the differences of what women say versus how they act, you will continue to be powerless in your quest for attention.

Why No One Trusts Facebook To Power the Future

NaCh0 Facebook Censorship (218 comments)

Facebook has a very heavy hand at suspending accounts who don't mesh with the feminist agenda. If you post pro-masculine articles, prepare to have your account terminated as happened by the owner of the Return of Kings page. Other pro-male pages like the Tom Leykis show are suspecting they will be next.

Now maybe you aren't into masculinity and don't care. But when they come for your subject of choice, (guns? reverse engineering?) prepare to find yourself locked out.

Wal-Mart Sues Visa For $5 Billion For Rigging Card Swipe Fees

NaCh0 Re:Customers may benefit... maybe (455 comments)

For one, I don't think that Walmart's margins are so thin that they can't afford...

This is a case where it doesn't matter what you think. Walmart is a master of optimizing prices. Maximizing revenue is a duty to their shareholders. When they see waste, in this case on the transaction fees, they work their hardest to reduce it. That is what's happening here.

Walmart serves a different market from Costco so your bit about amex is not applicable. There was a time 10 or 15 years ago when Walmart tried to start a bank to get in on the interchange rates and government regulators killed the idea.

Is Daylight Saving Time Worth Saving?

NaCh0 As an Arizona resident (646 comments)

I can safely say moving your clocks is idiotic. If you want to work 8-4 or 9-5, it really don't matter at all. Just pick one and make it happen.

Samsung And Docomo Reportedly Working on Tizen Phone

NaCh0 Waste of time and energy (88 comments)

I love linux and use it everywhere but let's be honest - Tizen isn't going anywhere. These developers would be better off building a GPL pure ecosystem around Android.

Universities Hold Transcripts Hostage Over Loans

NaCh0 Re:Not really a problem (541 comments)

Your other option when you can't afford it is to take things step by step. Get your associates, take a step forward in your career. Get your bachelors, take a step forward in your career. Get your masters, etc. Sure you don't become a PhD by age 25 this way, but shockingly, life is not "fair."
