Sophos Slams Facebook Security In Open Letter

re_organeyes What did you expect? (96 comments)

It's Facebook. Individual rights and privacy are irrelevant as long as the folks at the top keep getting their paycheck. People should learn how to socialize the old fashioned way, face to face.

You hit that nail on the head!

All of those records are nice I suppose, but I'm thinking, "who really cares?" about most of them.

King Wants To Sell Out Ham Radio

Hey, that was 1959, who knew anything about that stuff back then? If you could sell an upside down pie tin as a UFO....

Still yet, it was pretty hokey, even for Gregory Peck.

Loophole Means Unlimited Data For AT&T iPhone

re_organeyes Re:Horses are gone. (121 comments)

VW will probably end up doing a fizzle and burn. I had VW for about 6 months after they bought out AllTel (never had one problem with Alltel), the service was extremely lousy (admitted by one of their own CS reps). They make big jumps now, just like they did then. They are probably just as unprepared for it now as they were then.

Swiss Bank Has 43-Page Dress Code

re_organeyes I don't see a problem... (212 comments)

With a dress code. There are some people in this world that shouldn't be wearing the clothes they're wearing. We've all seen them. Regardless of what you look like physically (read as naked), with the proper clothing, anyone can become a real looker. UBS, being the type of company it is, expects their people to dress professionally so they attract "professional customers" (read into that what you will). I would certainly hope they pay their employees enough to keep a nice wardrobe, the type of clothes they want you to wear, you won't be buying at Walmart.

In the long run, if the money is right, it's only part of your life. Just think, when you get home, you can dress up in the spouse's clothing and go have a blast....or not.

Compiling the WikiLeaks Fallout

re_organeyes Re:Democrats loved the Pentagon Papers (833 comments)

I seriously doubt that Wikileaks had anyone best interest in mind when they published the information. What good will it really serve? As you've said, the amount of hurt, problems, and more this will cause was not, I'm sure, ever considered. He has also not given a shred of thought to what will probably happen to him once the wrong person/people catch up with him.

Senate Trying To Slip Internet Kill Switch Past Us

re_organeyes Re:Governmental Fail (461 comments)

Quite obvious how out of touch certain government officials really are. Not that it's news to anyone though. As is typical, they sit in their ivory towers and have become so out of touch with what the average citizen understands as reality, they they can't fight the battles they've been hired to fight.

Or maybe I'm just jaded?
