Monsanto Executive Wins World Food Prize

ehynes Re:Monsanto won what? (271 comments)

BT stands for Bacillus Thuringiensis, not botulism toxin. It is a bacteria that kills some species of insects by damaging their guts. It poses no known danger to humans, but its widespread use could adversely affect the balance of insect populations.

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.

ehynes Re:Papa John (418 comments)

How can it be payback? The lawsuit is being brought by a private law firm and it was certified as a class-action case by a Reagan appointee.

Fragmentation Comes To iOS

ehynes Re:Not to Developers (and your chart is flawed) (244 comments)

The last two items on your chart (iPods) are not iOS devices.

The Math Formula That Lead To the Financial Crash

ehynes No need for Black-Scholes to account for things (371 comments)

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.

The Real Reason Apple Is Suing Samsung

ehynes Re:Can Apple really expect to win this? (514 comments)

Do you really believe that Apple's contract for displays with Samsung is week-to-week or even month-to-month? And even if Samsung could and did stop supplying Apple with LCDs, do you really believe they could quickly find enough buyers to purchase those LCDs at the same price in this economy?

National Academy of Science Urges Carbon Tax

ehynes Re:externality (875 comments)

There's no reason carbon taxes couldn't be made revenue neutral by cutting taxes elsewhere. Tax the bads instead of the goods as Joseph Stiglitz says.

ehynes Re:Fraud-bait... tort-bait (419 comments)

They aren't insuring the devices, they're refusing to recognize them as medical devices and thereby refusing to cover them.
