Australian Economists Predictions No Better Than Flipping a Coin

pigphish Re:Economy is not a science. (290 comments)

I don't want to get into a debate on the facts [and at the risk of being an "economic extremist"] you keep saying "no government has applied Keynesian theory." A statement that to me and apparently many is obviously wrong.

Richard Stallman's Solution To 'Too Big To Fail'

pigphish Re:I have a better idea... (649 comments)

You must be full of the Kool-Aid they are serving. If one bank is ok to fail let the other fail as well, even if their buddyies (aka Bernanke and gang) are in the other one.

Slashdot must be using keynesian policy of modding to be modding you up. Pumping extra points into low performing posters.

Ask Slashdot: Using Company Laptop For Personal Use

pigphish Re:Just browse porn on the company laptop. (671 comments)

IT admins are in their ivory towers reading everyones private emails. When they are not they are annoying and not doing their job. As such most of the comments are dont do it so they can have something to do during the day (like read your personal emails). The expectation that someone will not check a personal email for 5 minutes a day at work is silly. No one lives in a silo while working. Except for IT guys of course. One aside, Euro zone privacy laws which are more progressive understand this practicality and enforce this reality. I personally think the portable apps solution on a drive is the most practical. What I have not heard mentioned is using an encrypted proxy service like tor or ipredator. This will make sure the IT guys aren't reading about your dinner plans if you are using the office network.

Bad PR Forces Apple To Reconsider Banning Mark Fiore's App

pigphish Re:App Stores Dept. of Corrections? (241 comments)

More likely the creative crowd/apple sheep don't think its "cool" to be banning award winning writers. This would also seem to be at odds with Apples "we are cool"/"you are fool" marketting campain.

Yelp Founder Says "No Extortion — Just a Misunderstood Algorithm"

pigphish Re:Sham (120 comments)

Agreed... with the added bonus of the algorithm automatically assuming you make good food (and no bad reviews) if you advertise on yelp.

Energizer USB Battery Charger Software Infects PCs

pigphish Re:USB Cell anyone? (260 comments)

Plus they are low capacity... 1300mah (in addition to being pricey). This compared to the common 2000-2500mah

The energizer duo is compact... charges aaa and aa.

You don't need the software to charge but this is very disconcerting news

Apple's "iKey" Wants To Unlock All Doors

pigphish Thank you Apple for inventing Keys (383 comments)

How long will it be until we drop the "i" and just start calling them keys. What a great invention, something to open locks.

Apple is even helping us deter theft. Will their wonderfulness never cease. What next? Will they invent analog clocks perhaps?

Yale Switching To Gmail, Not Without Opposition

pigphish Re:chillaxinate, broheims (439 comments)

Neither is a file server or a database until you put in the proper controls, security, and encryption. I would imagine a secure email server with proper controls and data protections would be compliant as well.
