Dolphin, a 3rd Party Android Browser, Relayed URL Data

Neptunes_Trident Re:I'm starting to wonder why people care (179 comments)

It is called profiling to empower industry and political leaders for social engineering.
While you are doing your best to be all you can be, they are setting up roadblocks to prevent you from achieving the success that you seek. This will become more and more apparent over time. That is exactly what their goals are with these tracking efforts. Social Engineering. To think or believe otherwise is being the fool.

Congressmen Worried About Amazon Silk Privacy Issues

Neptunes_Trident Re:If this is an issue... (148 comments)

This, Tax issue, And perhaps the data Amazon is collecting is not being shared with the government.

Concern about companies that don't collude with government to track and streamline targeted life oppression upon the public, groups or individuals.

Google Grabbed Locations of Phones, PCs

Neptunes_Trident Re:Im all for privacy, but c'mon (230 comments)

A street address does not reveal what your online activities may be. But between you and your hardware mac addresses and your isp with their assigned ip address, one can most certainly sniff out passing packet information. A I am sure you know there are federal laws that prevent others from accessing your mail and reading it. IMHO any packet passing through your router via modem via your isp should have the same outright protection as a letter in your mailbox. Regardless if your wifi is password protected. How many mail boxes have locks on them? What Google did was the equivalent of going through your street mail box, reading parts of a letter, except in digital, wireless form by way of capturing packets. Think about it.

Google Uncovers China-Based Password Collection Campaign

Neptunes_Trident Re:excellent PR by Google (186 comments)

All while Google assists our own governments campaign (patriot act & such). Witness the hand of justice, while the other hand of deceit works behind your back. Dismantling our foundation of liberty by limiting economic freedoms by Google providing information & assistance with corporations and government. Marketing, Statistical information about anyones life, what harm can it do? NO, this information will never paint a target on your back, regardless of your idealogical or political stance. Sure, right. Hide in your cave. Careful what you chisel on the walls. Be a good slave & stay within your debt/credit system and you'll be fine.

Should Colleges Ban Classroom Laptop Use?

Neptunes_Trident First & Yes (804 comments)

First post on a 40 minute old topic, on /. must be a record. Yes ban'em Its about what you know. Not how well you can get your math machine to minimize your effort. Have a bad memory, use a dictation device. Save the computer use for the library or outside the classroom. Unless the coarse of study resides in the digital realm, keep it out of the classroom.

British MP Calls For Pornography 'Opt-In'

Neptunes_Trident .SEX & .XXX & Routers.. OH MY! (335 comments)

Look, We call it porn because it IS porn. So just like a library or book store does with its reading material, lets make it MANDATORY we only allow porn sites to reside on .SEX & .XXX top level domains. Then have the home router manufacturers like Linksys, Netgear, Dlink etc..create within the administration settings an ability to block top levels domains SUCH as .xxx / .sex for little Johnny. We'll have a slightly better organization of OUR PRECIOUS PORN & put responsibility back in the hands of the parents. Google/Firefox/Microsoft can EASILY release a browser for kids that explicitly without option leaves top level domains SUCH as .sex & .xxx sites OFF the pictures/search results list. FFS, we used to make it next to impossible SEEING porn as a youth some 20 odd years ago. Now it seems all we want to DO is corrupt or entice our youth with it. WHY, what is the motivation to do this? So sick of this Nanny State crap. Government, Bureaucrats and lawyers all making money by eliminating my liberties, choice and CONTROL through attempting to turn Corporations into Police agents against the people all whilst exploiting my/our children is a sick perverted joke and needs to STOP NOW. When will this problem be solved logically, without turning our ISP into the internet police. We don't need no damn internet police. We just need organization, categorization and tools to empower THE PEOPLE.

A Robot In Every Korean Kindergarten By 2013?

Neptunes_Trident Re:This can happen only in Korea (136 comments)

A childs curiosity is a natural thing. I would hardly call it violence or destructive unless you yourself value artificial life over human beings. Which begs me to wonder just what universe YOU may be in. I'll keep this short and sweet. PEOPLE, HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS That is what we are and that is how we relate. If a particular culture wishes to subject their offspring to this kind of learning experience, so be it. But as far as humane reasoning exists, I am pretty confident that MOST cultures will still opt for people being teachers. I would never seek out nor allow a robot to tell me or my children what to do or learn, ever. BTW do you even HAVE any children... DUDE?

Supreme Court Hears Violent Video Game Case Tomorrow

Neptunes_Trident About Child Bullying (342 comments)

Video Games are a reflection of our STRUCTURED SOCIAL SYSTEM. Same with a child's behavior. It is a reflection of our SOCIAL STRUCTURE. And it is NOT the child fault, it is our own fault as adults. Here is a video about Bullying by a gentleman who holds degrees in History and Philosphy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KxUkRdjD3k

Gene Simmons Threatens Anonymous Again and Gets DDoS'd

Neptunes_Trident Re:Gene should really love Anonymous (403 comments)

All those songs are about selling out your relationships with others.
Compromising dignity and morality to get some and then gloat about it.

Who can blame the youth of today when elders such as Gene boasted about such past times. The only difference is that today, not only do we have horrible messed up relationships with others. Think reality TV etc... Now it has manifested its corruption/exploitation into the material world. IE music It is all piracy of the body and what it creates.

Only difference is now he is the whore getting used, not some bimbo who wets her pants for absurdity.
He is a hypocrite.
He promoted selling out and low standard of relations long ago and now that is just what he has to do.

How does it feel Gene you worthless whiny a$$hat.
What goes around comes around.
No remorse.

p.s. I always hated your crap from day one.

Pacific Trash Vortex To Become Habitable Island?

Neptunes_Trident Where are the Pictures of Garbage Island? (323 comments)

I have heard of this huge mass in the Pacific Ocean for quite some time now. But I never seem to be able to find actual pictures or satellite images of this "Double the size of Texas" island. The only images I ever see are ones that show land mass on the horizon. Which means images that are NOT in the middle of the pacific Ocean. Won't someone help a skeptic out?

Hack Exposes Pirate Bay User Data

Neptunes_Trident Not Worth Concern (156 comments)

What you are seeing right here in this article, is paid for marketing, promoting fear tactics to scare the masses. Registering at the Bay does not provide proof of illegal activities. There are plenty of legitimate torrents out in cyberspace and on Pirate Bay. Nothing to see here, move along folks.

Best Phone For a Wi-Fi-Only Location?

Neptunes_Trident Re:Ipevo SO-20 (289 comments)

This phone is great. I am looking at it right now as I type this. With my wireless G router, I can easily walk about 60 feet and get clear reception. Device standard battery gives me around 3.5 hours of talk time. There is a "Gold" version of the battery on ebay if you want longer battery life. This unit has never dropped a call. I have had it for more than 10 months and have put around 200 hours on it. 1/8 mic/headphone jack. Can be charged via USB cable and has its own docking station, Skype Certified. Easy interface, though no video calls, obviously. I decided on this phone after researching for days on end last spring, for a wifi skype solution. Best $125 I have spent in quite some time.

Nationwide Shortage In Supply of Swine Flu Vaccine

Neptunes_Trident Re:Not fear of death, it's not wanting to get sick (579 comments)

And my experience with shots were this. I never received a shot for years, since I was in junior high (late 80's). And never became ill, EVER. Even when smoking cigarettes for about 10 years 93-02. All I ever had was just the sniffles from time too time. No flu, nothing. Then I had my son. I did not start taking the shots yet but I quit smoking. Still felt fine, even when my son and other nieces and nephews were sick all the damn time and around me monthly (Family is all in Bay Area). I then decided I would do the responsible parent thing and go get the shot, just too "be on the safe side". For the exact same three years I received the shot, 2004 & 2005 & 2006 I was so sick and missed so much work from those damn shots, I would get sick as a dog weeks if not months AFTER, the shot was taken. So after all of that drama and having a friend/work associate who has an autistic son (not from birth) but from the shots he received (in 2006) I decided never again will I worry about the shots. Your body can do all the battling it needs to stay healthy... ON ITS OWN. Seriously, if it is NOT a Flesh Wound, then why bother. OH NO, because other people see that your ill and are now scared of you! OH NO.... please. This is the way it should be. Half the battle of illness is psychological. And if your fears (or other peoples) fears are pushing you too stick yourself with something cause you or even worse THEY, THINK it will protect you, YOU better think again. Since I have not had my shot for about 3 years now, I feel better than I ever had. And I laugh at all of you idiots who let your fears control you. And I put all you idiots in your place who think your fear is a reason....HA, to control SOMEONE ELSES heath/life. Good luck with that. I will never believe in peoples fear of mother nature, ever. Take all the drugs you want too comfort yourself, I prefer to not too play that game, Thank you very much.

Attractive Women Make Men Temporarily Stupid

The song is called, "If You Wanna Be Happy" and is originally by Jimmy Soul, released 1963. Not by the band you mentioned. As a music lover, I must give credit where credit is due.
