Exxon Charged With Illegally Dumping Waste In Pennsylvania

Neppy Re:What does that mean? (246 comments)

It means they will lawyer up until the government accepts a monetary settlement and all the executives get away unharmed. Or maybe with a bonus for "navigating dire straights" or some such nonsense.

FTC Chairwoman Speaks On Growing US Patent Problem

Neppy Re:Anyone know what happened? (87 comments)

Two things happened. 1. The patent trolls are no longer in just the tech industry. Major retailers etc. that can make a lot of noise are now under attack. These are companies that themselves hold no/few patents and thus have no interest in holding the status quo the way major tech companies do. 2. The situation has gotten so wildly out of control at this point that even mega corps are no longer benefiting from it.

Algorithmic Trading Rapidly Replacing Need For Humans

Neppy Re:This is bullshit. (331 comments)

THIS. It is total bullshit that if your computer fucks up massively you get a rollback. Keep your winnings if you win, get your money back if you lose. What a deal for the big firms.
