Researchers Scrambling To Build Ebola-Fighting Robots

Patent Lover Re:Economics plays a role here (87 comments)

That's super. My original post was google "funding for Ebola vs. funding for DOD". The entire HHS budget is about $4.8 billion vs. $486 billion for DoD. Just setting forth our priorities.

Researchers Scrambling To Build Ebola-Fighting Robots

Patent Lover Re:Economics plays a role here (87 comments)

Your link was to the waste by the NIH. CDC is in charge of outbreaks like Ebola. NIH is responsible for researching whatever Congress grants if funding to do. Ebola was not in the budget.

Researchers Scrambling To Build Ebola-Fighting Robots

Patent Lover Re:Economics plays a role here (87 comments)

The NIH is not the CDC. By the way, the DoD will spend $495.6 Billion (with a B) next year. $39 million will not even pay for a fix for the cluster fuck that is the F-35.

Flight Attendants Want Stricter Gadget Rules Reinstated

Patent Lover Six of one, half a dozen of the other (406 comments)

Why America Won't Match Sweden's Cheap, Fast, Competitive Internet Services

Patent Lover Re:not complicated...monopology (346 comments)

I live in Fairfax County, Virginia. It's one of the most affluent counties in the nation. As of four years ago, we have two high speed internet options (before that, one), Cox Cable and Verizon FIOS. FIOS is still not available in some of the county. You can always get DISH or DirectTV, if you can laughingly call them high speed. If you think your situation is normal, you are misinformed.

Grooveshark Found Guilty of Massive Copyright Infringement

Patent Lover Re:Some content should be avoided... (171 comments)

Admitting to owning Patsy Cline CD's is a brave act. I would have just brought in my unopened Lionel Richie vinyl album that somebody left at my house way way back, and let him figure it out. P.S. It's still in the shrink wrap if anybody wants it.
