Customer Asks For Itemized Bill, Verizon Tells Her To Get a Subpoena

edfardos Just another reason to not use a cell phone (415 comments)

My friends give me a hard time about not owning a cell phone, and yes, it's hard to justify, at least until these gems of corporate malfeasance and fraud present themselves. They wont get a dime of my money. Why subject yourself to fraud? Verizon is quickly completing it's corporate arc and circling the toilet bowl. --edfardos

edfardos Global Pressure? (554 comments)

Is anyone monitoring the global barometric pressure? Everyone who goes to college, including Democrats, typically learns that pressure and temperature are effectively the same thing. Anyone have the stats? preferably overlaid on temperature statistics? --edfardos

Intel's Sandy Bridge Processor Has a Kill Switch

edfardos All your data are belonging to thief! (399 comments)

Killing the cpu just means they have to transfer the drive to a new laptop in order to steal all your information? That's one whole extra step! That's innovation. --edfardos

Finding Independently Produced TV Shows?

edfardos Fantastic stuff! Wish i'd dumped cable earlier! (151 comments)

SciFi is circling the corporate toilet bowl by cost cutting. Normally I'd be bummed, but this thread shows an overwhelming amount of good content which is freely available. I think I'm done paying the corporate no-talent-ass-clowns money for a bad signal with worse programming.

To the no-talent-corporate-ass-clowns reading this, you might want to put this year's cost-cutting bonus in the bank, because I'm pretty sure it'll be your last.

RIP, SunSolve

edfardos Completely insecure (100 comments)

All you need is an 8-digit number to "claim" your support agreement! that's it! Just start making up random numbers if you need support for anything, or more importantly lists of customers, their locations, what they have. It's a marketing goldmine! What an epic failure. Does Oracle do business with the government? Thanks but no thanks. --edfardos

Obama Says Offshoring Fears Are Unwarranted

edfardos End free trade with non-free countries (763 comments)

Why do we play this economic game and abide by all the free trade rules when our opponents openly cheat and manipulate the market to their own advantage? Simply end free trade with non-free countries. India is obviously in a grey area with widespread corruption, but their people and market forces are somewhat in charge. Communist China? forget it, why even play the game if you know they're going to cheat (manipulate currency, embargo, subsidies, etc)? Yes, the cost of a toaster will go from $10 to $15, but if you don't have a job, you can't even afford the $10 blender.

Google, Apple and Others Accused of 'No Poaching' Deal

edfardos Corporate fascism (276 comments)

I've been trying to think of ways to describe how capitalism in the United States has degraded to Corporate Fascism. This is a fantastic example of corporate fascism -- something citizens can relate to; and these are just the corporations which got caught....

GPS Tracking Without a Warrant Declared Legal

edfardos Attach GPS transmitters to police cars (926 comments)

Since it's legal, what's the cheapest gps transmitter you can make that would attach to a police car. Knowing the location of your law enforcement officers at all times could be a huge public benefit - and now it's totally legal.
Law enforcement tracking - there's an app for that!

Skills Needed For a Future In IT

edfardos Learn to speak Chinese (258 comments)

Learn Mandarin or the native language of communist totalitarian countries in which the United States has free trade agreements. It's the new slavery, we'll need people to manage it in our IT environments of the future.

Dell Drops Ubuntu PCs From Its Website

edfardos Re:I tried to buy one yesterday (473 comments)

The flow of money is mostly one way also. Things wont change until that is disrupted, and I assure you they are monitoring that flow. That being said, I don't think any of this is relevant while Dell circles the corporate toilet bowl. Thanks for posting the chat - great stuff! --edfardos

California To Drop State Rock Over Asbestos Concerns

edfardos It's about money, not cancer. (256 comments)

I live in CA, with some of my property on exposed serpentine. I therefore, have to pay extra taxes to California any time I want to dig. The more serpentine, the more money the government receives. These laws are so easy they practically write themselves. Also, it is proposed that the earth's mantle is comprised almost entirely of serpentine (iron/magnesium/silicon), so I suspect these taxes will soon arrive at a county near you. --edfardos

The Race To Beer With 50% Alcohol By Volume

edfardos I'm a brewer - the yeast will die (297 comments)

The ABV limit is regulated by the yeast's tolerance to alcohol. There are very few strains that could survive and exhibit anerobic respiration at 20%ABV. Even if they did, the bad ethers and esters produced would taste like crap. (or bitter apple, or banana, or cinnamon).
