Tron: Legacy — Too Much Imagination Required?

mrshowtime The movie is an Unimaginative POS (429 comments)

I'd say that the Tron: Legacy doesn't require you to have an imagination, it just requires you to nod your head and agree to all of the stupid stuff that happens in the movie. Here's the best review I've read on Tron: Legacy. http://tronlegacyreview.wordpress.com/ It catalogs all of the significant problems with Legacy.

Obama To Get Secure BlackBerry 8830

mrshowtime What is Obama trying to hide? (191 comments)

Sure, on the surface, this seems like a good idea. Bring the president into the 21st century with an encrypted device for communication. The problem? EVERYTHING the president does is recorded and aside from classified/top secret stuff, supposed to be available for the public record. Obama gets around this by using this encrypted device. Who's he calling, or texting on his blackberry? We'll never know. Truth is, he's the PRESIDENT, he has hundreds of people constantly following him around, assisting him. He does not need a blackberry.

Scientology Given Direct Access To eBay Database

mrshowtime Re:Curious (684 comments)

You are wrong. Sure, Scientology does not have access directly to ebay to delete auctions, but with the VeRO program it's virtually the same thing. Ebay does not scrutinize ANY request that a VeRO member would make. Scientologists can send take down notices for things unrelated to their cabal. They could even send take down notices for IP that is NOT EVEN THEIRS. They, for example, could start claming that auctions for Orgone Accumulators violate their "patents" and although both the "thetan meter" and the argone accumulator are works of scientific fiction, eBay would comply with the take down request and remove the "offending" auctions. I would go so far to say that the church of Scientology could even start sending out take down notices for TRON auctions and ebay would pull them, even though the IP is owned by Disney.
