Coal Plants Get New Lease On Life With Natural Gas

NoNonAlphaCharsHere Re:Gas not less CO2 on refiring coal plants (142 comments)

Please don't bring logic and engineering to the discussion, we're busy blaming liberals and environmentalists for resisting another corporate handout. After all, it's the "envirwackos", not the NIMBY soccer moms and the timid capitalists keeping us from having a shiny nuclear plant on every block. We NEED to be spending public money to "upgrade" privately-owned, already-amortized and obsolete coal plants to inefficiently burn natural gas. It's a Christmas miracle!

Intel Announces Major Reorg To Combine Mobile and PC Divisions

NoNonAlphaCharsHere Re:Dumping (75 comments)

LOL really? All the Android tablet makers should just fold their tents? Because "the user experience for Android on a tablet device is horrible compared to the iPad"? And "[Android] is slighty better than an ebook reader"? I'm sure they'll all discontinue making Android tablets later today. iPad/iPhone 4ever!!1!!!

And Google and Samsung disappeared in a puff of fanboyism.

What the US Can Learn From Canada's Internet Policy

NoNonAlphaCharsHere And it won't be (142 comments)

"This is a ballot-box or pocket-book issue that hasn't really been seen yet in the United States."

Not while the mega-conglomerates control the news AND the cables it runs on. And, of course, the Senators who would vote on it.

Apple's Luxembourg Tax Deals

NoNonAlphaCharsHere This just in: psychopath is psychopathic (158 comments)

Until we get away from the definitions that:

1) a corporation exists only to increase shareholder value
2) it is managements "fiduciary responsibility" to only "increase shareholder value", i.e. make the most profits possible
3) a corporation is a legal person, with all of the rights but none of the moral compunctions

We are going to have corporations that act by definition as psychopaths: amoral, antisocial, remorseless, uncaring, uninhibited, greedy and evil. They will act as unlawfully as they are permitted to.
