Judge: NSA Phone Program Likely Unconstitutional

gVibe Re:NSA Press Release (345 comments)

My sentiments exactly...Does anyone really think that the NSA cares whether something they are doing is constitutional or not. Technically, the very existence of an organization such as the NSA would be unconstitutional by its very design.

Gov't Puts Witness On No Fly List, Then Denies Having Done So

gVibe Re:Just drive there (462 comments)

Except that the daughter was coming "TO" the U.S. and was prevented from flying. She can't drive from Malaysia to Court...we don't have InterCountry Highways between Malaysia and the U.S.

Ars: Cross-Platform Malware Communicates With Sound

gVibe Re:And there's a whole series of comments at Ars.. (245 comments)

Yeah, because everyone knows that comment writers are scholars and geniuses that clearly have the credentials and respect to be listened too. Dumb.

Call Yourself a Hacker, Lose Your 4th Amendment Rights

gVibe Re:Stallman would have something to say about this (488 comments)

Yeah...no.

Having a gun registered has nothing to do with 'girlintraining's comment. The point being owning a gun, whether registered or not, automatically would label said gun owner as a killer, simply because by owning a gun they possess the ability to kill someone.

The contrast here is that simply owning a computer and having basic programming skills labels you as a hacker...which is wrong on many levels, but especially should the courts decide to search your computers for evidence of anything related to anything they deem possibly harmful to a complainant.

Schneier: Metadata Equals Surveillance

gVibe Re:So in other words... (191 comments)

Wholeheartedly agree!! Think of it like skimming only the headlines until you find a story that interests you. Then you click and read...except for the NSA, its click and catalogue.

EFF Wins Release of Secret Court Opinion: NSA Surveillance Unconstitutional

gVibe Re:Now they're gonna get it... (524 comments)

No...they been had it. They simply believe that they don't have to care about it. Like that one kid in school that never got caught, so he continued on through life thinking that he was invincible, until the train hit him.

Washington Post Hacked, a Day After New York Times

gVibe Re:More information (98 comments)

Remember kids...anything coming from a Fox affiliated network has been tainted. Usually an unnamed source for Fox is that voice in the head of the reporter or whatever they call themselves.

Apple Sued For Man's Porn Addiction

gVibe Re:False Flag (509 comments)

False flag (or black flag) describes covert military or paramilitary operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities, groups or nations than those who actually planned and executed them.

Well ya if you want to believe that Wikipedia is the endall source of information...but...in today's world: "False flag terrorism" occurs when elements within a government stage a secret operation whereby government forces pretend to be a targeted enemy while attacking their own forces or people. OR The term originates with naval warfare. For centuries, ships have sailed under a flag identifying their nationality. During times of war, ships would sometimes change the national flag they flew in order to fool other vessels that they sought to attack or escape from. OR Something disguised to seem affiliated with a group OTHER THAN the one it really is affiliated with. For example, a "false flag operation" is a terrorist act committed by one group for the express purpose of discrediting another group, which is framed for it. Just sayin...

Apple Sued For Man's Porn Addiction

gVibe Re:False Flag (509 comments)

False flag for those who do not know is what the government or any organization does to distract the not-so-smart people while a more sinister plan is enacted. In short: "Look a flying saucer!" meanwhile "BANG!" something blows up.

Microsoft To Abandon Windows Phone?

gVibe Re:Headline title is sensational (505 comments)

Did you even bother to read the article or is your head so far up Balmer's ass that you cant see the reality of his failures? Even the blurb describing the article clearly defines what the headline means...."Microsoft has had some trouble as of late getting adoption of their mobile products." Do you really think that WP9 will make any difference at all? Its still closed source and not at all developer friendly.

Software That Flagged HBO.com For Piracy Will Power U.S. 'Six Strikes' System

gVibe Re:So, do something (292 comments)

Have you ever tried to take on a Drone armed with Hell Fire missile, using only a .22 Rifle? Doesn't work to good.

Depends... are you aiming at the drone, or at the pilot?

Do you have the authority to get on the military base where the pilot is hiding? Then it would be the pilot, but then you would be dead from all the bullets fired at you for not dropping your weapon.

If you don't have authority to get on the base...then you only have one other choice. And I highly doubt a .22 round will disable a Hellfire missile. Unless you are extremely lucky, and had flawless intelligence of where that Drone is at.

Software That Flagged HBO.com For Piracy Will Power U.S. 'Six Strikes' System

gVibe Re:So, do something (292 comments)

Um...The United States really isn't that glorified magical place they teach you about in school books. I've lived here since birth, and I can promise you that those who stand up and fight usually end up in jail or disappeared altogether. The leaders here are too stupid to be scared of the population, and a large majority of that population is even more stupid.

I don't know where or how you get this crazy idea about how the people put fear in the government...not even in France. I would be willing to bet that if the French government truly wanted to shut the people up, they could, and would.

Considering that the US 2nd Amendment -- you know, the amendment that everyone is misinterpreting right now -- was put in place so citizens could defend themselves from an attacking government (e.g. the British during the Revolutionary War). However, today, the argument is that people want the right to buy guns of the same size and magnitude the government has. Have you ever tried to take on a Drone armed with Hell Fire missile, using only a .22 Rifle? Doesn't work to good.

Stand up and do something....that is just wishful thinking.

Microsoft Blames PC Makers For Windows Failure

gVibe Re:I've Seen Touch Screens For Years (913 comments)

Not to mention Balmer claiming things like "the iPhone is a fad", thus delaying M$ entry into the Phone/Tablet market. If I were a M$ employee, I would use this time to confront Balmer directly, tell him what a sweaty buffoon he is, then go clean out my desk and depart.

What do you do if you are a mob hitman on trial for murdering 19 people?

gVibe gVibe writes  |  about a year ago

gVibe (997166) writes "First...Kill all government witnesses.
Second...lie about having anything to do with it.

Stephen "Stippo" Rakes, a former South Boston man who had waited decades for a chance to testify against James "Whitey" Bulger, was found dead in Lincoln on Wednesday, authorities said today.

Rakes, had been on the witness list and had been eager to testify that Bulger threatened his family at gunpoint and forced him to turn his liquor store into a front for the Winter Hill Gang. But earlier this week prosecutors informed Rakes he would not be called to testify, a decision that left Rakes despondent."

Clearly Illustrating why Twitter just can't replace website comments

gVibe gVibe writes  |  more than 2 years ago

gVibe (997166) writes "...in a nutshell: a discussion between several prominent bloggers and authors erupted a few months ago about whether or not to enable comments on websites. One of the arguments against having comments was that Twitter was a perfectly adequate replacement; something the author thinks is complete nonsense. Not only is Twitter effectively one-to-one communication (it's very easy to just ignore tweets you disagree with; none of your other readers will ever see them), Twitter messages are far too short to be able to sustain a coherent conversation.

Everytime A Toilet Flushes A Google Server Gets Cooled in Georgia

gVibe gVibe writes  |  more than 2 years ago

gVibe writes "Oh, that Google. They’re always thinking of new ways to lower their carbon footprint on the planet earth. And to prove it, they’ve uploaded a new video to YouTube showing off exactly what they can do with all your doo-doo water, once they put their mind to it. To help cut massive energy costs, Google is using colorful pipes of waste, too cool down servers at their Douglas County data center in Georgia. Once their heat sinks are down to a reasonable temperature, the water is sent to a Google made treatment plant where the water is further cleaned up before it exits into the Chattahoochee river.
