Spain's Link Tax Taxes Journalist's Patience

ehynes Re:Not dying, just changing (113 comments)

Ad sponsored journalism always had a built in conflict of interest even when they were scrupulous about keeping the business and content separate.

Do you seriously believe that the "new" journalism isn't ad sponsored. What, other than ads, do they have as a source of funding? At least the "old" journalism could get some revenues directly from their readers. The "new" journalism, not so much.

Deloitte: Use a Longer Password In 2013. Seriously.

ehynes Re:There should be a limit to password retries. !0 (538 comments)

So if I want to wipe out your data I just attempt to log in to your account 10 times using a bogus password. Even if your data's backed up, the next time you go to log in might not be a great time to have to do a restore.

Apple Store Artist Raided By Secret Service

ehynes Re:They shouldn't have gone after him... (376 comments)

You're citing a California Supreme Court decision which, although it was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, is not relevant in this case (see http://www.davelippman.com/LawoftheMall.html.) That decision is also irrelevant here because the artist's actions occurred inside the Apple store, not in the (possibly) public space outside the store.
