EFF Warns TI Not To Harass Calculator Hobbyists

conteXXt Re:Uh, why just TI? (405 comments)

Exactly. If the EFF decides to pursue this to the end, it will more than likely give others pause when trying to stop people from USING their PURCHASED electronic devices.

They aren't talking about "hacking IP". They are talking about using hardware, think linux on Intel hardware. If Intel required signed bootloaders, do you think the law would protect them too?

You have to aim for NO copyright to get "reasonable" copyright.

Tell me I am wrong please.

Painting The World's Roofs White Could Slow Climate Change

conteXXt Re:Pavement (712 comments)

Asphalt has it's issues in cold climates.

Up here in Toronto, highways are concrete (yes concrete) with an asphalt layer on top.

Every summer the asphalt has to be repaired, leading to our two seasons.

Winter, and Road Repair.

Things may be similar in the midwest but I am only speculating.
