Google ToS Change Means Your Photo Could Go In Ads

elloz So much for Dont Be Evil (136 comments)

Silly Con valley is becoming a cellpool of NSA-complicit bastards and customer-betrayed scoundrels like Google and Facebook.

Don't be a sucker.... like those dopes who think 9/11 was done by 19 foreigners.

Don't use Google and Facebook.

Fusion "Breakthrough" At National Ignition Facility? Not So Fast

elloz My worry (118 comments)

My worry is that these people don't really know what they're doing, and that they're going to ignite a fusion reaction that will be self-feeding and turn our planet into a sun. This is one area of research where a mistake can really ruin the environment.

PengPod Crowdfunding a Tablet Made With OS-Switching In Mind

elloz You cannot have privacy if you are using Ubuntu (93 comments)

In 2009, Jane Silber became the CEO of Canonical in 2009. Canonical makes Ubuntu.

Jane Silber's previous job was at that military contractor, namely the C4 Division of General Dynamics. It turns out that at the C4 Systems division is all about using computers for spying.

From their website: "General Dynamics C4 Systems is a trusted leader in the development of intelligence and information gathering systems for national defense and homeland security. These systems are designed to receive, process, exploit and disseminate information -- in different forms and often from different networks -- and distribute relevant information to operators, both in the field and at higher headquarters."

Nest Protect: Trojan Horse For 'The Internet of Things'?

elloz NSA Proxies (177 comments)

I'd bet money that the NSA bankrolled these people.

The spooks want to put software on your phones and software in your household devices.

1984 was supposed to be a warning, not an instruction manual.

US Adults Score Poorly On Worldwide Test

elloz Re:Americans (745 comments)

You're a perfect example of what's wrong with America. You apparently don't seek out contrary views, do you accept the popular myths as facts, even when they are logically inconsistent and proven false.

US Adults Score Poorly On Worldwide Test

elloz Americans (745 comments)

Most Americans still believe that foreigners perpetrated 9/11, that the 2000 election wasn't rigged before the Supreme Court decided it, and that a lone gunman killed Kennedy. The mindset is basic capitalistic utopian anti-intellectualism. Most everybody wants to get rich QUICK and flash the bling around. (In suburbia the "bling" takes the form of a big SUV and a big house.) Americans obsess over fantasy football and Black Friday and who the latest hot pórn starlet is but they don't realize that a revolution is happening in America -- in which globalist hijackers have taken over the government and plan to fly it into the ground.

Police Demand Summary Domain Takedown, Traffic Redirection

elloz Let's ask ICANN to take down the police website (251 comments)

All for one and one for all. I'm pretty sure those cops are doing something illegal -- they're protecting crooked capitalists after all.

Tour Houston's Texas-Sized Hackerspace (Video 2 of 2)

elloz Re:This is getting really retarded (45 comments)

Read the fine print for the hacker space before you spew your lame epithets.

You don't know, but you think you do, and that is ignorance.

Tour Houston's Texas-Sized Hackerspace (Video 2 of 2)

elloz Re:WTF is the point? (45 comments)

In my experience, the complete absence of a stated ethical goal usually means the military is running it.

Even douche-bag start-up weenies will lie and say they're trying to do good for the planet.

The only people that categorically refuse to say they're hoping to do good are those who know they're doing bad i.e. criminals, military, etc.

You're right, some of them are merely misogynistic, homophobic, narcissistic dorks who learned social skills from WoW, and who talk trash about their girlfriends behind their backs. (I have witnessed this.)

elloz This is getting really retarded (45 comments)

They keep trying to force nerds to be social and make them feel coddled and cool. I would be willing to bet money that any code or other intellectual property that is produced in "hacker spaces" and such is owned by the people who built the space, not the coders. Read the fine print -- you may be getting conned.

The Human Brain Project Kicks Off

elloz BAD MATH (251 comments)

Doesn't anybody screen these posts? 10 billion euros is more like 14 billion dollars. Why would anyone try to create a human mind when we don't even understand it yet? The reasoning is simplistic to say the least.

Social Fixer Falls Victim To Facebook Legal Threats

elloz Re:ill tell you how to fix it (194 comments)

Good on you for not being a member. I'm the same way. I like self-presentation, but I see no reason to do it through any service that betrays me and claims ownership over my data. I would go one step further and say it is unethical to join up with these services, because it encourages others to do so.

How would you know if they're not objecting? The mass media serve the corporate interest, not the interests of the Common Man.

Social Fixer Falls Victim To Facebook Legal Threats

elloz FB not ethical (194 comments)

Facebook's motto seems to be Let's Be Evil. Time after time, what they do is really not friendly, not nice, not fair, not good. It's evil and based on my experiences with them, I'd say they like it that way.
