Six Months Without Adobe Flash, and I Feel Fine

baresi Vigilance (393 comments)

As long as you don't create a false sense of security for yourself. Flash (and Java) get all the headlines and sometimes deservedly so but the web is unsafe unless the user is vigilant. Vigilance is more than just disabling stuff, well unless you are talking about 'disabling' everything living totally offline.

New eBay EULA Prohibits Class Action Lawsuits

baresi If it hasn't been mentioned already (234 comments)

If some body or a group of people are really serious about an issue that arises from this they can take eBay to court for the EULA itself. If I bury a line in my product EULA that I have the right kill all users and (even) 1% miss it and accept the EULA it doesn't mean it can stand in a court of law.

Google Tweaks Algorithm As Concern Over Bing Grows

baresi As mentioned by others (397 comments)

Google has passed the threshold where a company starts making decisions, just for the sake of it, that are not enhancing their customer's experience. Everything from new products that are scratched months later to dropping the + operator point to redundant internal meetings just for the sake of it.

Apple Threatens Bistro Over "AppleADay" Name

baresi Re:They have to (301 comments)

The issue is those who are supposedly riled up should and must be riled up on the other points you bring up (court allowing things, etc.) too. So your point while not invalid is not valid either ;)

baresi Speaking of flame war (1352 comments)

I am sure I will lose some of my positive karma on this one but nevertheless...Are those not watching Fox News doing that much of a better job? Looking at the world that's highly questionable in my opinion

Doubling of CO2 Not So Tragic After All?

baresi Re:Hopefully (747 comments)

You deduced 'always' from my one liner? Any way...No. to answer your question The point is there is plenty of evidence that it is happening, varying degrees of urgency or lack thereof does not change the overall message and science

Doubling of CO2 Not So Tragic After All?

baresi Hopefully (747 comments)

Hopefully reports like this are taken as good news not fuel for the skeptics and deniers. Good news because we have a better chance and perhaps more time at managing with increased CO2
