New York and New Jersey.

Verizon has been fucking them for years...hard!

Never thought I'd feel bad for people from Jersey...

Oil Man Proposes Increase In Oklahoma Oil-and-Gas Tax

killfixx Everyone prepare for Armageddon! (182 comments)

An oil tycoon wants to give more of his money away, on purpose! Truly this is the first sign of the end of days!

Good for him... He thinks he doesn't pay enough taxes... That's mind blowing.

Weird.

Autonomous Car Ethics: If a Crash Is Unavoidable, What Does It Hit?

killfixx Re:Pinto? (800 comments)

This is a weird segue, but which car does it hit? The more expensive car with better insurance, or the cheaper car that explodes?

Will you be able to buy "don't choose me" premiums?

How will this affect emergency vehicles?

Target Moves To Chip and Pin Cards To Boost Security

killfixx Re: Chip and PIN (210 comments)

A bit off topic, but how will this changeover affect companies like square that depend on swipe and sign for most transactions?

Other than that, it's about fucking time!

Sick of finding out every other month that some retailer that I frequent has been hacked.

I'm tired of constantly changing my credit info to avoid being ripped off...

Student Records Kids Who Bully Him, Then Gets Threatened With Wiretapping Charge

killfixx Rewarding the bullies... (798 comments)

This is why people don't like going to the authorities...

Not only was his problem not taken care of, but he was actually punished for trying to protect himself non-violently!

Fucking ignorant fucks!

I usually don't feel this way, but as a person who was endlessly bullied, I hope they eat a bag of diseased dicks.

Another person who will be afraid of authority.

And, what if this kid commits a Columbine-esque revenge scenario? They'll blame it on some other bullshit, not their own lack of souls...

FUCK!

Kansas Delays Municipal Broadband Ban

killfixx We elect the greediest, most ill-informed... (156 comments)

...politicians. How the hell do we keep doing this?

I'm so sick of how apathetic people are.

If this happened in my state, I'd be writing letters everyday!

Not allowed to build infrastructure because it might put someone else out of business... Boo-fucking-hoo... We, as a country, have no obligation to support your flawed or failing business model...

Fucking fascist politicians... Those lobbyist presents must be wonderful, indeed! Especially seeing as how they're willing to sell out the constituents for them!

Ask Slashdot: Can Bruce Schneier Be Trusted?

killfixx Re:Trust no one (330 comments)

Hrmmm... You have a great point... More computers won't make the job easier... Smarter computers will...

Look at Watson... Specifically designed to measure the value of information in both directions and use these values real time as it sorts through massive amounts of data...

Areas where humans were thought to be the only solution, here comes Watson...

Law, medical diagnostics, computer software troubleshooting, etc...

These are all areas where Watson will soon dominate...

We can only hope the Utah data center will NOT have IBM as one of the contractors...

killfixx Re:Computer ? Website ? (516 comments)

Actually, I know many families that can't make enough to afford a computer but make too much to get free health insurance... or even reduced price lunches for their kids...

Ask Slashdot: Suitable Phone For a 4-Year Old?

killfixx Re: 4 years (682 comments)

Perhaps he shouldn't have posted it on the internet if he didn't want people prying or criticizing or trolling or etc...

If it's for security reasons, then ask that...

If he's looking to be a helicopter parent, then he should ask that...

Without a reason, he sounds like every other douche-bag hipster parent that wants their kindergartener to be the coolest kid at story time...

DEA Argues Oregonians Have No Protected Privacy Interest In Prescription Records

killfixx Just another example... (455 comments)

Of these three-letter-agencies twisting the law to fit their needs. And, without any of the necessary oversight that we were promised.

So, I guess my question is, are things going to get better because we have a more aggressive flashlight for exposing these secret interpretations of our law, or, will this just keep getting worse until something significantly worse happens? Something like, Egypt, Syria, etc...

Revolutions are nothing new... I just wish they weren't so damned violent and terrifying.

Anonymizer owned by Abraxas parent company Cubics

killfixx killfixx writes  |  about 2 years ago

killfixx (148785) writes "Anonymizer, the company that brings you free anonymous email facilities, called nyms, as well as similar secure services used by activists all over the world, is actually owned by Cubic Corporations, the parent company that owns Abraxis, which in turn owns Trapwire. So, it’s possible, if not probable that all those activists around the world who believe their emails are safe may well be sending messages that go straight into Trapwire, the surveillance system that monitors activists."

Ask Slashdot: SOPA/PIPA Educational Material for L

killfixx killfixx writes  |  more than 2 years ago

killfixx writes "I would like to put together an educational packet, aimed at non-tech-savvy people, explaining why SOPA/PIPA should be considered an intolerable injustice. As most of you can appreciate, trying to explain this to lay-people is a rather long and painful procedure guaranteed to produce similar results as lecturing your children. I want people to not just listen, but be catalyzed. Does anyone know of a particularly effective video or website that's been helpful to them?"
