Vintage 1960s Era Film Shows IRS Defending Its Use of Computers

Stormthirst Re:Uproar? (146 comments)

I personally don't because I don't use cash unless I have to. And then only coins.

I do see people use cash at the self checkout, and if a client has paid me in cash I tend to spend it by buying at the grocery store.

Can the ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Be Believed?

Stormthirst Re:i pledge to you... (722 comments)

It (government saves a life) has never happened (likely never will) so we will never know how Jesus would accomplish such.

More On the Disposable Tech Worker

Stormthirst Re:its not asy (323 comments)

That's ok - he's an executive director. I bet he gets a golden fuck off. It's like a golden parachute except ... well there's no except. He gets paid to fuck off. Unlike any other sector of the work force. He gets paid to be a cunt to people.

Massachusetts Court Says 'Upskirt' Photos Are Legal

Stormthirst Re:A new law in not what is needed (519 comments)

No, the fact she is wearing a skirt means she not nude or partially nude. The fact she might or might not be wearing panties is not relevant.

She is expecting privacy - or she wouldn't be wearing a skirt.

Stormthirst Re:A new law in not what is needed (519 comments)

You realize that the underwear is part of the reason why they take the photos - right?

Stormthirst Re:Smart move (457 comments)

I never understood why iPhone's adapter is a completely retarded pile of junk. What's wrong with the standard USB adapter like everyone else? Oh aside from them making a cock load of money from cables.

Study Finds iOS Apps Just As Intrusive As Android Apps

Stormthirst Re:But unlike Android apps (107 comments)

Part of the problem here is that clueless users don't understand permissions. They will assume that they have to grant the app all the permissions, or it won't work.
