Bitcoin Exchange Flexcoin Wiped Out By Theft
rocks ... doesn't it.
This is what you wanted right?
Seriously, if you come here to talk about how this isn't a fundamental bitcoin problem, you deserve to have your noise smacked with newspaper like a dog.
The only 'benefit' bitcoin has is that its unregulated and not as well watched by the government ... which means its easy for people to just steal your money and lie about it ... I'm sorry, its easy for someone to setup an exchange and let someone else steal the coins from the 'hot wallet', whatever the fuck that is.
Before you open your mouth to defend bitcoin ....
THIS WHAT WE'VE BEEN TELLING YOUR STUPID DUMB ASSES ABOUT, NOW SHUT THE FUCK UP, ITS A SHITTY IDEA.
I am wondering if you have even the slightest idea about how stupid you are.
Probably not :(
WikiLeaks Cables Foreshadow Russian Instigation of Ukrainian Military Action
I got the feeling that Czechoslovakia didn't feel all that liberated. Nor Hungary, Romania, Poland or Yugoslavia. Swapping one mad bastard for another isn't liberation.
How can you even debate a topic, when you get one major thing wrong at the start?
Do you even realize what is horribly wrong/inaccurate in your silly statement?
The Tech Industry Is Getting Ridiculous
Wait, some people believe "goto fail" was a "programming error"?
MtGox Files For Bankruptcy Protection
I recently checked Reddit's /r/bitcoin, to see how the True Believers were taking the latest developments. To hear them say it, Bitcoin has already recovered off its lows, which mean everything is fine and all this bad news is just FUD spread by haters. Bitcoin believers truly live in their own universe.
MtGox != Bitcoin
I hope it will come to you eventually.
Largest-Yet EVE Online Battle Destroys $200,000 Worth of Starships
Secondly, the guy responsible, a 29 year old banker who was literally asleep when it all went down, insists that the virtual money was in the account and it was set to autopay. People close to this suggest the word for this is "bullshit", but it has been "petitioned" -- a claim by a player that the server screwed up. This isn't without precident, as the game is currently limping about with it standings system broken. Standings is basically Eve's IFF system. Right now, nobody in the game can tell friend from foe. Needless to say, it's a massive issue. So it's possible they farked up, but unlikely.
Standings issue is the screwup that occured after deployment of new update, yesterday,
A day after the 'autopay' thing you are talking about.
Stop talking nonsense and trying to rationalize, please. I understand that losing hurts, but don't be a silly liar.
US Government To Convert Silk Road Bitcoins To USD
It would be nice to actually have a trial before doing anything.
Valve's Steam Machines Are More About Safeguarding PCs Than Killing Consoles
Can we just fess up and admit that SteamOS is an effort predicated on a personal beef Gabe Newell has with Microsoft and especially the fact that Windows 8 included it's own store and that store was not Steam. The story is well documented and the whole industry is going to blow a lot of money on development just to satisfy one man's ego.
Yea, because Gabe is a jedi master who makes other people do things he wants.
Please, stop the nonsense. I can bet my left nut that Gabe and people working on Steam machines know a thing or two more than you about PC hardware and/or gaming, and are not just mind-controlled by Gabe.
Reasons and everything else have also been well documented, and are certainly not based on a hunch that someone has about Gabe's ego.
Hearing Shows How 'Military-Style' Raid On Calif. Power Station Spooks U.S.
All islamic terrorists - therefore pretty much all of the violent ones - hate us for not being Muslim, full stop.
How is that a "pretty valid reason"?
Any other reason they claim to hate us for doesn't ever stop the hate when we address it.
I am really not sure whether you are serious or jus trolling.
I hope you're trolling, for your sanity sake.
Snowden Document Shows Canada Set Up Spy Posts For NSA
Yeah, I don't see why there's so much shock. "US ally assists US spy agency in spying." Wow. My flabber is truly gasted.
What they are doing is not spying.
I surely hope you understand that. If you do not, then no amount of talk will explain you the difference.
You have to understand it for yourself.
The Desktop Is Dead, Long Live the Desktop!
Desktop/PC is not dead. It's just that people, until now, didn't have any other option than to purchase a PC, in order to do tasks they are interested in.
Now that they can get a tablet/phone to do this, they don't need PC. They never did. They just didn't have a choice.
Nokia Shareholders Approve Sale To Microsoft
Yes, because it would have been a much better proposition to start churning out more disposable Android phones in an already over saturated market. At least wp8 gives them some market differential.
It sure does. Market share shows it.
Nokia sold out its soul to get few shitty percent share on US market.
If that's what they wanted...
British Intelligence Responds To Slashdot About Man-in-Middle Attack
Of course, they haven't broken any/all the laws, because some secret people in secret room said so.
Laws only apply to "other people", obviously.
The NSA Is Looking For a Few Good Geeks
For all Its faults, the NSA is more of a flawed character than an evil one. It does have a particular job to do, the job it's supposed to do is a worthwhile one, and for the most part "our"* criticism of it has to do with its methods, not its mandate. We do, actually, want to know what foreign governments are up to, especially in terms of what those governments might be planning that severely affects America's interests. We do, actually, want our government to know what terrorists are up to, as part of a combined good faith effort to counter-act them.
Blah, blah, blah.
Tell me - what kind of society expects "population" to obey the rule of law, as long as "population" does not work in government agency?
What exactly makes NSA cyber criminals immune to laws that are being applied to the rest of the population?
The fact that they "work for government"?
Everyone is equal before the law... unless they work for the government agency?
Would you like me to explain you where that leads? Well, it doesn't really lead anymore, you've already go there.
Stephen Elop Would Pull a Nokia On Microsoft
Anyone who thinks Symbian was a decent alternative OS and that abandoning it for virtually ANYTHING else was a mistake needs to have their head examined. In fact I'd credit sticking to Symbian for too long with as much of Nokias problems as anything else.
Symbian was a phone OS. Not an 'alternative' OS (whatever you mean by that). And it was the best phone OS.
You know, for people who want to have a phone, and not a miniaturized computer that runs shitty OS which spend more time tracking you than letting you use it.
Stephen Elop Would Pull a Nokia On Microsoft
Blackberry stuck with their own stuff, which was even relatively entrenched in the enterprise... a lot of good it did them.
This is the most retarded comparison you could think of.
Nokia had excellent products and a very large and loyal 'user base'.
Blackberry had nothing similar.
Comcast Donates Heavily To Defeat Mayor Who Is Bringing Gigabit Fiber To Seattle
...in the US is called "lobbying".
Quite sad, actually.
Apple Blocks Lawrence Lessig's Comment On iOS 7 Wi-Fi Glitch
Honestly, I just can't get worked up about this justified censorship. Until Apple releases some kind of official solution (which might very well be "send it in for repair"), giving out wrong solutions just increases the amount of trouble involved. Having managed a help desk before, I've seen how often we had to waste time undoing users' community-given fixes for problems, like adding RAM to remove a virus (thanks, Geek Squad!). By resorting to the warranty's options, Apple's operational cost rises, and the user still doesn't have wi-fi on their phone.
So, how long do you think people should wait for Apple to give "some kind of official solution"?
A day? Week? Month? Year?
I mean, I can't see why people would be upset that device which they paid hundreds of dollars for does not work and they also have no idea how long before they would be given "some kind of official solution".
It is just natural to wait for weeks/months in such situations, isn't it?
Israel Helped the NSA Spy on Former French President According To Documents
From these "world leaders" to journalists, why all of the 'surprise?' Spying is one of the things that governments do, ALL of them. They ALL spy on their allies and foes alike and it has always been this way. In the US/Israel context, we both spy on each other all day, every day, and assist with information on other countries too. France does the same thing, so does England. Nothing new here.
I think you might be confusing "spying" with "breaking all kinds of local and international laws, crossing all possible lines and doing acts to others on a daily basis which your own government considers as acts of war".
But please, just keep justifying.
Federal Prosecutors, In a Policy Shift, Cite Warrantless Wiretaps As Evidence
The US has an independent press that's always critical of the government, no matter which politcal party is in power, like the New York Times.
Now, this is a good joke :)
UK Telcos Went Above and Beyond To Cooperate With GCHQ
... why can't they prevent that soldier boy Lee Rigby from being chopped to death in the Woolwich area of London, by two Moslems from Africa ?
In America too ... refugees from Somalia returned to Somalia to become terrorists
If the surveillances are so effective, why can't they prevent all these from happening ?
Because that is not why they are doing the surveillance.
