US Marshals Accidentally Reveal Potential Bidders For Gov't-Seized Bitcoin
I'm not so sure. I'm thinking that Hanlon's Razor [wikipedia.org] should be applied here.
The corollary? Nothing is provable; everything is permissible.
Your adage is one of a pushover. You are a sucker, and you promote being one.

German Ministry of Education Throws Away PCs For 190,000 € Due To Infection
Don't attribute to negligence what is so obviously fraud.
Google Store Sends User Information To App Developers
If you could explain the difference between need and want, I would not have to explain to you that as a business man, I don't need your address, I just want it.
Google Store Sends User Information To App Developers
This! I've sold software on Google Checkout/Wallet since day one, and always expect/demand customers data. I would like to get data from iOS sales too! This developer needs to get a job.
Ask Slashdot: Making Side-Money As a Programmer?
I paid for my MacMini, iPhone 3G, and phone service on my first day in the iTunes AppStore. But, that was in 2009. Now, you really have to have polished software to compete. That doesn't mean you can't make a business out of it; it means you won't likely do it overnight, or without a CS degree and a design team.
PayPal Preparing To Address Frozen Funds Policy
The chargeback rate on PayPal is much higher than that of a standard merchant account. This is specifically because of fraud. I've done business with Google Checkout since day one, if if there's a chargeback, you can get a contact with a real person from Google, and they will not protect fraud.
Congressman Introduces Bill To Ban Minting of Trillion-Dollar Coin
Nonsense! The platinum coin is the perfect solution to fractional reserve accounting.
Why don't you face reality. They allocate x amount of money. They charge 3-5% interest on it. And, all the money they allocated has to be paid back. It's a ponzi scheme. It's a ponzi scheme by definition. The debt is not ment to be paid back; it's ment to keep you enslaved.
This is the perfect way to pay them back. It's not a legal loophole.
Koch Bros Study Finds Global Warming Is Real And Man-Made
I think they are playing people. It's just part of the globalist march. Of course there is global warming. Clearly, the solution is to take away the property of those that complain about it.
Researcher: Interdependencies Could Lead To Cloud 'Meltdowns'
Ford compared this scenario to the intertwining, complex relationships and structures that helped contribute to the global financial crisis.
Cloud computing is like fractional reserve accounting, with artificially low interest rates?

Case Closed On Jerusalem UFO Video
As for the Phoenix lights, the second wave have been explained (flares), and the lack of an verifiable explanation for the first wave doesn't mean they were exotic aircraft/spaceships/time-travelling reptilians. Fuck, migratory birds flying in formation cause massive illuminated Vs gliding silently across towns and cities all the time. The human propensity to see structure where there is none quickly extrapolates points of light into solid structures is well-documented, and has not been ruled out at all.
I have no doubt that the additional Phoenix Lights events were flares, and likely hoaxes. In fact, I believe they were productions to cast doubt on the first events. But, suggesting that the first event could be birds is absurd. That does not match the video, many thousand of creditable eyewitness accounts, and coverup. To suggest that migratory birds are not ruled out as an explanation of the Phenoix Lights is to admit ignorance on the topic.
Google Won't Pull Checkpoint Evasion App
There's about 55,000 vehicular fatalities every year in the US. Over 40,000 of them do not involve any alcohol. Of the ones that do involve alcohol, the alcohol use is not always a contributing factor.
Drunk drivers are pursued because it's both profitable and politically correct. That's not enough to make it just. A truly just cause is to work to prevent all 55,000 fatalities every year. Systems exist to do this. If the government funded programs for vehicle safety, such as cars that drive themselves, most all auto fatalities would vanish, along with the DUI problem.
Open Source Licensing and the App Store Model
VLC was removed because someone complained, and Apple did not want to deal with the problem
That said, I do not believe GPL2 prevents users from posting in the App Store. Here's why.
It is said that it can not be posted, because someone can not freely use the code that is shared when it's posted. That's not true. Anyone can use the code. The true complaint is that you can't sign and distribute the code without paying $99. Does GPL say that there has to be free code certs? I don't think so. The only issue is the code certificate need to sign the code.
Will Touch Screens Kill the Keyboard?
Personally, I hate typing on touch screens. I doubt they can replicate the experience of a keyboard. I want to be able to type with two hands, without looking at the keys, while able to see the full screen.
Also, get off my lawn.
For Mac Developers, Armageddon Comes Tomorrow
You have to realize that the article is talking about small independent software vendors, and not companies like Blizzard who have billions in market capital that can be used for advertising.
I am an independent publisher of software on another platform, and I make a good living selling discount software at $40 a copy. If overnight I had to worry about others discounting that software to $5 a copy, I'd have trouble.
That being said, my software is for a very limited group of people, and I doubt I'd see much competition, but who knows?
What's the Oldest File You Can Restore?
Some systems have an option to fully overwrite the files instead of simply deleting the references to the files. Also, it wouldn't be hard to imagine that an algorithm to overwrite a disk could fail when finding a bad spot on the drive, and fail to finish the job.
Saturn's Rings Formed From Large Moon Destruction
I read a while ago that the same happened with the Earth's moon, or the Moon. The same side of the moon is always facing the Earth, because it bounced off of the Earth. It's also moving away from the Earth, for the same reason. The theory was the object that crashed into the Earth was about the size of Mars; that object is now the Moon.
