Clarificiation on the IP Address Security in Dropbox Case

dysmal Re:First.... um... (147 comments)

I wish i had mod points so that i could mod this up!

BTW, Benny needs to go find a nice quiet field where he can ponder all of his BS he wants to "submit" to Dice... er.... /. and then take a hammer and hit himself in the face. A lot.

dysmal Re:Presumption of innocence vs privacy issues (147 comments)

Unfortunately (in the US) your IP address is more than enough to prove your guilt if the accusing parties happen to be the RIAA/MPAA

If the History Channel has taught me anything in the past couple of years, whatever the puzzle is, it was Aliens.

Ten years ago, History Channel taught me it was all about Hitler

While some may find this distasteful, I have absolutely no doubt that Tom would find this joke hilarious.

Rest in peace, Tom. Thanks for years of great radio!

US Post Office Increases Secret Tracking of Mail

dysmal Hard to believe this about the Post Office (112 comments)

My dad retired 10 years ago from the USPS. Having grown up listening to the stories of what the people and management were like there, I find any conspiracy theories with USPS being involved (on any level) questionable at best! I'm sure anyone who has ever worked for the government (local/state/federal) would agree. Both the workers and management are either too lazy or too incompetent to tie their shoes.

Google Announces Inbox, a New Take On Email Organization

dysmal Re:To those who are somehow upset about this... (173 comments)

On the contrary. This means that Gmail will get all of the "features that everyone loves" from inbox and Gmail users will be slowly ingested into the latest Google sponsored maw of despair.

Flight Attendants Want Stricter Gadget Rules Reinstated

dysmal Re:That's not the reason you're being ignored. (406 comments)

It's liability. If they don't cover the directions every time according to script, they can be held liable if something happens. Remember that people can (and do) sue over very trivial things. There's a warning label on hair dryers to not use them in the bath tub. There's a warning on coffee cups.

Yes "everyone" knows the rules of flying yet somehow on every flight people still need to be reminded to PUT THEIR GOD DAMNED SEAT BELT ON DURING TAKE OFF AND LANDINGS.

Adobe Spies On Users' eBook Libraries

dysmal Typical Adobe product (150 comments)

If history repeats its self, this "feature" will be buggy and need constant patching. They'll then spin it off as a cloud service where it'll cost you more to spy on yourself and yet spy less.
