NSA Can Spy On Data From Smart Phones, Including Blackberry

Guinness Beaumont Re:Secret oversight (298 comments)

You're implying that the voting function changed any outcomes; and that is arguably not true. Further, being so aggressively victim-blaming is a pretty horrid view - and amazingly ironic given your username.

Israeli also employs racial profiling. This is something the US can't/won't do (officially). Being PC is costing the US quite a bit, both in terms of effectiveness and monetarily.

Transport Expert Insists 'Don't Dismiss Wacky Hyperloop'

Guinness Beaumont Re:OTOH (385 comments)

Correction: The FBI hasn't been able to coax anyone into posing as an Al-Qaeda Assbomber, so they could then swoop in and Save The Day.

NRA Launches Pro-Lead Website

Guinness Beaumont Re:The Romans found out about lead (780 comments)

The rounds used for hunting are designed to expand (not fragment), and the over-penetration you're describing isn't an issue. Either way, as a bullet fragments it will stop moving forward.

If you can afford x, you can afford x*2 is a pretty obviously false for a huge range of x.

You're saying that you want to be killed by a torrent of really bad troll posts? That's what I'm getting from this.

Version 2.0 of 3D-Printed Rifle Successfully Fires 14 Rounds

Guinness Beaumont Re:I hope it explodes and kills him (336 comments)

Live by the sword implies the use of the tool, not merely the existence of the tool. This man didn't murder anyone, it wouldn't be divine comeuppance for him to die. It would make as much sense (i.e. none at all) to look at a demolition engineer and say, "He worked with explosives, a bomb-maker, it's fitting that it exploded in his face." This man has not "lived by the sword" by any sane definition.

Hi, you either don't understand the premise of non-aggression, or intentionally ignore it. Don't do that. It cheapens your argument.

Nothing like wishing harm on people to show how you're morally superior and non-violent. Amirite?

Forget Flash: Resistive RAM Crams 1TB Onto Tiny Chip

Guinness Beaumont Re:Dictation versus typing (287 comments)

I'll add my voice to the dictation working camp. My new phone has a decent VTT texting feature. Occasionally I will need to repeat myself, but it's miles faster than typing on the whole. Voice recognition is getting to a functional point.

That's why he used the term "fully", so it's a minimum time, assuming there are no other issues or delays.

New Atomic Clock Could Redefine the Second

Guinness Beaumont Re:Grumble.. (76 comments)

The more exact and finite an objective standard of time we posses the better we can measure other things. More lines on a 4th dimensional ruler, if you will.
