The Struggle To Ban Killer Robots

pouar I'm surprised no one commented about this yet. (138 comments)

If the "killer robots" tried to take over the world today they would fail quickly, XKCD seems to have explained why already.

Ex-Microsoft Employee Arrested For Leaking Windows 8

Legal Motion: Hyperlinks Are Protected By the First Amendment

pouar If that's the case.. (49 comments)

"Hyperlinks Are Protected By the First Amendment" If that's the case, then everything on thepiratebay.org is perfectly legal. Torrents and magnetlinks are esentially hyperlinks for the BitTorrent protocal.

DARPA Looks To End the Scourge of Counterfeit Computer Gear

pouar hope all it does is verifies... (75 comments)

...instead of stopping the system if it doesn't verify (kill switch) or sending the results back to headquaters (spying), otherwise it's DRM. As long as the user has full control on what this thing does such as turning it off or changing what server it sends the info to or what it registers as counterfeit and what doesn't then it could be a good thing. But if this is used to lock the user out of his own hardware or prevent him from changing or modifying it then this is going to be a huge problem.

Does Relying On an IDE Make You a Bad Programmer?

pouar I prefer the command line and a text editor (627 comments)

It's actually easier and quicker for me to use than an IDE. I usually use Bash as my shell and Kate as my text editor (Kate is similar to Notepad++ in functionality which is what I used before my switch to GNU/Linux). when I compile projects I either use a simple Makefile or CMake depending on the size of the project. I've done OS detection and resolution with Makefiles before.

LLVM & GCC Compiler Developers To Begin Collaborating

pouar This is a good thing. (279 comments)

While I do agree with Stallman over them using a BSD-3 like license. I do like LLVM and Clang. And working together will benefit both LLVM/Clang and GCC which is a good thing.

German Domain Registrar Liable For Copyright Infringement

pouar Germany needs to get their copyright laws in order (164 comments)

If anyone should be held liable it's h33t.com, they're the ones ding this. Of course if h33t.com's content is user generated then h33t.com isn't liable either. Also aren't torrents similar to links. The content themselves aren't hosted on their servers either but via a bunch of bittorent clients working together, so h33t shouldn't be liable at all.
