DC Entertainment Won't Allow Superman Logo On Murdered Child's Memorial Statue

imatter Re:Superman (249 comments)

I am not sure how granting rights in this case would hurt their trademark, but... they allowed a guy to dress up as Batman for the Make a Wish Foundation. Maybe the Make a Wish Foundation didn't ask for permission only forgiveness. http://sf.wish.org/wishes/wish... that page doesn't even mention DC Comics.

NSA Collecting Millions of Faces From Web Images

imatter Re:failure of scope... (136 comments)

I don't like taking the bait but... +4 really? all the mod points probably came from U.S. citizens too, that's a shame.

Naive? I understand, but apparently you can't read, I did not say we don't or never kill women and children. I think the only thing I really did there was use the word "probably" which FTFY, "I would have to say you are right, they have."

NSA Collecting Millions of Faces From Web Images

imatter Re:failure of scope... (136 comments)

With one exception, targeting women and children. Now, you might say, but they do kill women and children. I would have to say you are probably right, they have. The difference is, that as a nation, the United States does not condone the killing of women and children, therefore our military and the people who sign up for our military are not there to kill women and children, that is not why they exist.

The Singularity Is Sci-Fi's Faith-Based Initiative

imatter Re:Science Fiction is fiction made up by authors (339 comments)

I don't know, it worked for these fuckers, Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. There are plenty of people that took their story as the way it's gonna go down. Is it any different? Let's ask Kirk Cameron.

Google Using YouTube Threat As Leverage For Cheaper Streaming Rights

imatter Re:worked in the old days (197 comments)

No, not an election... but raise your hands, how many of you have looked at a licensing contract or better yet tried to negotiate one with a record company or music association. Those of you with your hands up understand my comment.

CISPA 3.0: the Senate's New Bill As Bad As Ever

imatter Re:Eventually it goes through (132 comments)

I have to imagine that the real reason they didn't pass before was because they weren't evil enough. I agree though, they will keep coming until one passes.

Adam Carolla Joins Fight Against Podcast Patent Troll

imatter Re:Flawed example (126 comments)

My example or Logan's? Logan's is definitely flawed.

It's funny I searched for Peppers patents and didn't find anything. I did find this though Bob Moog read the second to last paragraph.

Adam Carolla Joins Fight Against Podcast Patent Troll

imatter I am still trying to figure out... (126 comments)

How a cassette tape device in any way resembles a digital audio system where you can download a file that has a playlist and that playlist is updated periodically. Logan says he wanted his product to be digital but just didn't get there.

...and then there is this Podcasting History, oddly no mention of PersonalAudio - Pioneers in Playlists & Episodic Content.

On a side note, I think I have prior art. I used to do that with my Vic 20, of course when you put the cassette in the walkman the sound that came out was hard to listen to.
