French Blogger Fined For Negative Restaurant Review
Seriously?? In a country where people plea-bargain to get a shorter sentence, even if they know they're innocent because they can't afford a descent lawyer, therefore leaving the real perp to go free and a 'magically solved' crime.
A country that rich get off free, and the poor get sentenced.
You can't even fly FPV now! No problem here in Europe.
Goldman Sachs Demands Google Unsend One of Its E-mails
Personally I think Google should be able to charge them for wasting there time. How many people are they expected to employee to wipe up other peoples stupidity.
Federal Judge Rules US No-fly List Violates Constitution
The US government does behaive like a dictatorship on many occasions.
It's easy. Either you have evidence, in which case charge them. Or you don't.
I see little difference in a dodgy country that controls it's citizens at will and the US. Next they'll be locking people away for years without even a trial. And make them wear ugly orange suits....... oh.... hang-on......
MIT Researchers Can Take Your Pulse, Right Through the Walls
So now robot killing machines can check to see how agitated they've made you, right before they kill you. Nice.
New Tech Super PACs Could Tap Into Google Riches
How do you think the president became the president? By lobbying and spending millions of dollars. He affects how you live and is still influenced by outside corporations. That's constitutionally fair, right?
So another group are operating in the same way. It's part of American life. If th
And to those who are going to reply with "but he was elected", well not by me or millions of other people he wasn't. But he still affects us all.
London Black Cabs Threaten Chaos To Stop Uber
If they're worried about loosing jobs to an app, wait until they see the self drive taxis that are coming. Taxis are so expensive in London, they deserve to get competition.
SpaceX Looking For Help With "Landing" Video
Seriously, land in a desert or something similar. Much easier to recover protected data storage units. If you can't hit the landing spot of a massive dessert, theres no way anyones going to let them land on a landing pad.
Proposed Indicator of Life On Alien Worlds May Be Bogus
You've clearly evolved..... in to a muppet.
species rarely make thremselves extinct.
Aussie Attorney General's War On Encrypted Web Services
Every time a government forces a company to make or create a back door or hand over keys to them, it makes it easier for countries like China to hack the hell out of our companies. Utter stupidity.
Ask Slashdot: How Can I Prepare For the Theft of My Android Phone?
What we really need is a phone / ring combination. i. e. phone only works with the wearer of a ring. No need to use pins, works all the time for every app, quick and convenient.
NASA Wants To Go To Europa
the fact that water if regularly venting to the surface means that there are likely very thin areas of ice that can be utilised. Even on our planet life exists in very, VERY hot water that until recently we thought that life had no chance there. NASA had spent billions of dollars sending landers to Mars, a dusty boring planet. Once ok. Over and over.... a compete wase of money. Europa = a good chance we could actually find real living life. Way move exciting than Mars could ever be.
Jewish School Removes Evolution Questions From Exams
He was then, because of the way he was brought up and the time he was living in. I bet he wouldn't be now. These days, science and religion are mutually exclusive. Unless you want to be labelled a 'crack pot'.
People didn't know any better then. They do now. Religion has had it's day..... time to grow up and move on.
ICE License-Plate Tracking Plan Withdrawn Amid Outcry About Privacy
It already happens in the UK. I can't say it's ever bothered me. If you were a criminal, you'd likely have false plates anyway, so it's probably not that useful.
Oregon Signs Up Just 44 People For Obamacare Despite Spending $300 Million
I was tempted to flag this, as "unrealistic", or "created by a fantasist" :-) Your right, but if they were agreeable, they wouldn't be politicians. Politicians who probably got there by stabing at least one person in the back.
YouTube Expands Live Streaming To All Channels
Very unlikely. YouTube is integrated in to most modern media products e.g. TV's, bluray players, consoles etc. On these, these is pretty much no alternative. And for most end users, it works well.
And any alternative that exists, is likely to be sued out of existence by copywrite holders for using game content without permission etc. Google are just covering there arse.
It's a business, with a product you've been happily using for free for years. If it were owned by Apple, trust me, it'd be way more limited and protective. You'd probably have to wait for months for your videos to be 'approved', before being listed.
Disabled Woman Denied Entrance To US Due To Private Medical Records
USA, a country full of control freaks and paranoia.
Getting Evolution In Science Textbooks For Texas Schools
If man is made in God's image, then what's he doing with a penis. And if god is perfection, how come he made a flawed man. How come every religion sees there own particular God when they have a near death experience. Why, cause it's all made up.
Getting Evolution In Science Textbooks For Texas Schools
Wow, I just can't understand how people still believe in a god (any god). It's the 21st century! Here in the UK, they expect the church of England (christian) to be dead within a single generation. We grew up. The US still seems to be backward thinking in so many ways.
No explanation of other planets, solar system. I can't wait till they find life on another planet. Let's see you text books explain that. #growup
Robotic Surgery Complications Going Underreported
Yer, it is if your business is located in a cr@p country. If your happy for this stuff to go on, then they obviously use it for your brain surgery.
Why NASA Launched Millions of Tiny Copper Wires In Orbit
So, NASA spends millions every year monitoring debris (more commonly knows as space crap) and are worried that even a flake of paint can damage a space station because of its speed, and they deliberately put debris (crap) into space. Well done NASA.
