fran6gagne love is irrational and a waste of time (561 comments)

Why would such highly intelligent people would let "love", an highly irrational feeling, waste their precious existence time. Aren't they way too busy finding a cure for cancer or making nuclear fusion works?

Adobe EULA Demands 7000 Years a Day From Humankind

fran6gagne Re:and then again how long are US bills and laws? (224 comments)

Think of citizenship like a license to live in a country and laws are the EULA you accept to get that "license".

Who read and understand all the laws of the country he reside in?

Sure they say that, and then they can go to the store and buy a better android phone from a different manufacturer and reuse all their accessories, get back their purchased apps, etc...

Galaxy Tab Sales Ban Lifted, Samsung Sues Apple Over iPhone 5

fran6gagne Re:Apologies to Lionel Richie (196 comments)

Sue you, sue me, sue it for always,
That’s the way it should be.
Sue you, sue me, sue it together, naturally.

I had a dream, I had an awesome dream.
People in the park,
Playin' games in the dark.
And what they played was a masquerade,
From behind the walls of doubt,
A voice was crying out.

Sue you, sue me, sue it for always,
That’s the way it should be.
Sue you, sue me, sue it together, naturally.

As we go down life’s lonesome highway,
Seems the hardest thing to do,
Is to find a friend or two.
That helping hand, someone who understands.
You’ve got someone there to sue, "I’ll show you."

Ooo-oooo.
Sue you, sue me, sue it for always,
Aw, that’s the way it should be.
Sue you, sue me, sue it together, naturally.

(So you think you know the answer, oh, no.)
Well, the whole world’s got you dancin'.
(That’s right, I’m telling you.)
(It’s time to start believin', oh, yes,)
(Believe in who you are,
(You are a shining star.)

Sue you, sue me, sue it for always,
Aw, that’s the way it should be.
Sue you, sue me, sue it together, naturally.
Sue it together, naturally.

Teenager Arrested In England For Criticizing Olympic Athlete On Twitter

fran6gagne Re:Inflammatory headline anyone? (639 comments)

"According to the Guardian, another (since deleted) tweet threatened Daley with drowning, but the law doesn't require threats of violence for an arrest to be made."

It is like saying:

Well the summary is all wrong but it could have been true.

Mark Zuckerberg's Big Facebook Mistake

Mark Zuckerberg's Big Facebook Mistake

fran6gagne Re:Billionaire. (418 comments)

He made billions by luring thousands of unsuspecting investors (including home 'mom and pop' type investors) into buying his overvalued bubble stock

I thought that getting shares from an IPO like the Facebook's one was very difficult for small investors, because the big banks or brokerage firms responsible of the IPO kept the stocks for their big clients. I guess the people who had enough money to be one of those clients had a clue of what they were buying.

Can you elaborate on those "thousands of unsuspecting investors (including home 'mom and pop' type investors)" ?

Apple Planning To Build Private Restaurant

fran6gagne Re:What's new? (234 comments)

I really don't see what's news here.

There is nothing new. This is Apple business model applied here: to take a preexisting concept, add a couple feature to it, wrap it in a white case with round corners and find a "cool" name for it.

Apple is 95% marketing and 5% innovation.

You could make a prostitute detector and equip it on cars so they don't start when they detect a prostitute in it. That way you can't bring one home and contract viruses.

Microsoft Barring Certain Staff From Buying Macs, iPads?

fran6gagne Re:Right (416 comments)

Don't most companies ban using company funds to buy competitors' products for operational staff?

Especially, when said company produce products that can be used instead of competitor product. That is common sense in my opinion.

The Dark Side of Digital Distribution

fran6gagne Re:If only there was some way to avoid this! (270 comments)

Yeah, great solution.

"Hey, I just got robbed!"

"So? Don't live in that house any more if you don't like people robbing it."

Since a license generally give you the right to use an application. A more appropriate analogy would be:

"Hey, I just got robbed!"

"So? Don't live in that apartment any more if you don't like people robbing it."

or unlicensed copies of Windows.

Do you know you can buy Windows license in a box? You can transfer a license from a computer (no longer functional) to another. That school employees and students have access to educational licenses? And their is plenty other ways to obtain a legal Windows license other than getting it bundled with a new computer.
