FTC Targets Massive Car Warranty Robocall Scheme

jenkin sear Re:Wow, it only took 30,000 complaints... (361 comments)

They aren't complaining about legal behavior, are they? These dirtbags are breaking the law.

If it took 30,000 calls to the cops before they got off their butts and investigated a robbery, would that be appropriate?

If they have 100 credible reports of an organization involved in lawbreaking, they should investigate. And they should get off their fat asses far quicker to save everyone the enormous time and trouble.

FTC Targets Massive Car Warranty Robocall Scheme

jenkin sear Wow, it only took 30,000 complaints... (361 comments)

Holy crap, the FTC did NOTHING until more than 30,000 complaints were received. You'd think the threshold would be a hell of a lot lower. Your tax money at work- thanks assholes.

Microsoft applies for patent on Tufte's sparklines

jenkin sear jenkin sear writes  |  about 5 years ago

jenkin sear (28765) writes "Data Visualization Guru Edward Tufte developed Sparklines, a great way to display condensed data as an inline graphic. Excel's new version has incorporated the design element- and Microsoft has applied for a patent on them- without so much as a by-your-leave from Tufte. So much for a kinder, gentler Microsoft."
