Facebook's New Terms of Service

cosmocain Re:Uh, yeah! (426 comments)

i won't argue - i never stated that they are allowed to do ANYthing. But still they are seeking whays to maximize profit - as long as this doesn't collide with local laws. This is a more specific case of what i wrote not a falsification.

I'm almost too sure that facebook has a set of lawyers who evaluated if the ToS do collide with any laws in the US - and obviously they came to the conclusion that they are allowed to do what they are doing.

Facebook's New Terms of Service

cosmocain Re:Naive thinking... (426 comments)

Really? I don't think so - i don't know the table-structure of facebook but i worked with a few CRMs. And all of them stored everything forever. "Deleted"-tags were applied to every comment, picture, etc - but nothing got really purged. In the database structure everything was still available.

Facebook's New Terms of Service

cosmocain Re:Uh, yeah! (426 comments)

Yeah - and if you paint your car green it'll get recepted as a tree. Your logic's somehow screwed up.

Seriously - what i wanted to say is this: You're using a free service which is provied by a commercial company. You really don't have to be surprised if they somehow seek ways to be profitable.

And sure as hell - if you deleted your account it wouldn't have been deleted anyway. It just wears a "deleted"-flag so it isn't publicly displayed any more.

There's an ancient proverb describing the evolution of those ToS:

Scientists Map Neanderthal Genome

cosmocain Re:FOXP2 (229 comments)

Nah.

FOXP2 is responsible for "language development" with songbirds and other animals(*), too. If your logic would be correct, birds would talk like humans - which they obviously don't. (*)

The FOXP2 protein sequence is highly conserved. Similar FOXP2 proteins can be found in songbirds, fish, and reptiles such as alligators.

FCC Publishes "White Spaces" Rules

cosmocain Erm. (63 comments)

The database will be established and administered by a third party, or parties, to be selected through a public notice process to solicit interested parties.

1. Such a database can't be operated at no (or low) cost.

The locations where wireless microphones are used, such as entertainment venues and for sporting events, can be registered in the database and will be protected as for other services.

2. Registering such devices will most propable cost money to keep up with the expenses needed for operating the database.
3. To save money people won't register their devices.
4. ???
5. Pro...erm... Interference.

...about financial information when all human-rights-related things still get filtered? this is no good news for the masses, it only shows the two-faced attitude of china towards capitalism/communism.
