VeriSign Wants Ability To Suspend Domains Without Court Order

TouchAndGo Re:Sounds like a fine idea. . . . (123 comments)

Add in the fact that they'll probably start slipping forced arbitration clauses in their contracts like a lot of companies are doing and I can't see this going wrong at all

Pavegen To Tap Pedestrians For Power In the UK

TouchAndGo The power source is made out of people (197 comments)

"Pavegen To Tap Pedestrians For Power In the UK" I've seen this movie trilogy. It didn't end well. No, seriously, it REALLY didn't end well

Rite Aid Drug Stores Offer Virtual Doc Visits

TouchAndGo Re:Is this really sufficient for most illnesses? (138 comments)

Also, what happens if their advice is just "You'll need to go to the doctor's office/emergency room"? Does the $45 get refunded?

Rite Aid Drug Stores Offer Virtual Doc Visits

TouchAndGo Is this really sufficient for most illnesses? (138 comments)

Generally speaking, I'd like some sort of diagnostic tests beyond a conversation and a limited visual inspection via streaming with questionable resolution.

Rite Aid Drug Stores Offer Virtual Doc Visits

TouchAndGo Re:Doing some math here (138 comments)

Pretty sure if the service is successful it'll just illustrate that $45/10m is the cost that people are willing to bear, and it won't change.

EA's New User Agreement Bans Lawsuits

TouchAndGo Re:Meaningless Clause. (273 comments)

The supreme court has already ruled that a company's ToS can legally require you to forgo class action lawsuits in favor of individual arbitration, so apparently they feel that there's still some method of achieving compensation, despite the fact that a class action lawsuit is made up of a lot of small claims which no lawyer would have any interest in representing on an individual basis.

Google Preps Devs For One-Size-Fits-All Android

TouchAndGo Re:Biggest thing is SUPPORT (228 comments)

And how many different devices with Android are on the market at the same time? There's a difference between doing 2 major updates for one specific piece of hardware on one (now two) carriers, and doing multiple updates on dozens of different phones, all with different hardware, across multiple carriers. Although this is also why people have been complaining that google needs to force manufacturers to conform to some kind of spec if they want to use android.

Inside Netflix's WebKit-Based UI For TV Devices

TouchAndGo Where can I find their UI designer? (39 comments)

All I know is that the UI on the WD live tv recently changed to more closely match the travesty that they turned their webpage into, and whoever is designing their UIs needs a kick in the head.

Injunction Blocks "Don't Be Friends" Law For Missouri Teachers

TouchAndGo Re:Anyone have a link to the decision? (150 comments)

I'm trying to figure out how requiring the school district to enact it instead of it being enacted directly by the state makes it better, or how the school districts having a year to draft the policy makes it better. Those aren't even relevant to the conversation and you act as though the outcry hinges upon who's enacting the policy and the timeframe in which they will do so.

BART Disables Cell Service To Disrupt Protests

TouchAndGo Re:Just where do you think "rich and connected" we (440 comments)

So just close your eyes, keep your mouth shut, and pretend not to see all abuses of authority because it's not a REAL fascist state.

How bad does it need to become, in your view, before people are allowed to object?

Why Netflix Had To Raise Its Prices

TouchAndGo I reduced my service (574 comments)

I changed my subscription from 3 dvds + streaming to streaming only. Not to teach Netflix a lesson or because I was angry with them, but because the price increase made me really look at whether I wanted to continue paying that kind of price. If there'd been no price increase I probably wouldn't have given it any real thought and continued at my current subscription level indefinitely. Significant price percentage increases have the negative effect of making people actually stop to think about how much they're paying and for what, and most subscription services will end up the worse for that scrutiny.

HTC Infringed Apple Patents, Says ITC's Initial Determination

TouchAndGo Ban on import? (230 comments)

Since when does patent infringement result in a ban on import rather than a fine and order to pay royalties for the patented item? Is it because HTC isn't a US company?

Panetta Says Defeat of Al Qaeda 'Within Reach'

TouchAndGo Re:The way I see it. (249 comments)

It's a pretty poor rebellion that is seeking to fight the army of the opposing side.

"Rebellion, uprising or insurrection, is a refusal of obedience or order.[1] It may, therefore, be seen as encompassing a range of behaviors aimed at destroying or replacing an established authority such as a government or a head of state"

Panetta Says Defeat of Al Qaeda 'Within Reach'

TouchAndGo Re:The way I see it. (249 comments)

But it does absolutely nothing about the issues, both real and perceived, that caused Al Qaeda to exist in the first place. It's attacking the symptoms and ignoring the cause. So how long will it be before there's another group comprised of exactly the same disenfranchised people under the same ideology?

FCC Commissioner Leaves To Become Lobbyist

TouchAndGo Re:Money buys power -- regulatees capture regulato (309 comments)

"In order to get into that position, that one station must have out competed the others to attain more money."

Cause absolutely no one who owns a station STARTED with any money, it was only accrued through them being the most successful station. You're advocating hard for letting those with money do whatever they want to those without.
