NSA Metadata Collection Gets 90-Day Extension

rezme Re:The US was already taken over in 1817 (73 comments)

I blame the lizard people personally. They have the real copy of Barack Obama's birth certificate, and it shows that he is clearly an illegal alien. From another planet.

Deputy Who Fatally Struck Cyclist While Answering Email Will Face No Charges

rezme Re: Ridiculous. (463 comments)

My son was hit on his bicycle by a car turning left while he crossing the intersection. Funny, how a bicyclist magically became a pedestrian for those circumstances rather than "traffic" and he was ticketed rather than her. She failed to wait for the intersection to clear, but it was his fault because he was on a bike.

Deputy Who Fatally Struck Cyclist While Answering Email Will Face No Charges

rezme Re:yet if we did it (463 comments)

Yes, then the family will be drawn and quartered figuratively, for the crime of having murdered these valiant, upstanding officers who were heartlessly slain in the line of duty.

Securing the US Electrical Grid

How in the hell did you take an article on power security down this racist rabbit hole? The country is 63% white and 12% black. Where are you seeing that whites are disappearing?

T-Mobile To Throttle Customers Who Use Unlimited LTE Data For Torrents/P2P

rezme Re:In before (147 comments)

No, what they advertise is unlimited data from the phone. What they don't say is that once you hit 10 gb of 4g download on that "unlimited" plan, you have unlimited edge service. That said, I'm an extremely heavy data user and have only run up against that cap once in the 4 years I've been with them.

Ford, GM Sued Over Vehicles' Ability To Rip CD Music To Hard Drive

rezme Re:Time Shifting? (317 comments)

If that were the case, the ruling regarding computers being legal would be invalid. You would have to disregard the computer since the CDRom drive is capable of ripping music. Even given that the entertainment system is capable of ripping CDs, the fact that it's called an "infotainment system" gives the primary purpose right there. Providing information and entertainment. The system isn't marketed as a "CD Ripping system", it's just touted as one possible feature of the infotainment system.

Russia Prepares For Internet War Over Malaysian Jet

rezme Re:Black box data streaming (503 comments)

It's satellite based. My father did some of the work on the code that handles transitioning between satellites and ground stations as the plane travels the globe. Basically, the plane talks to a satellite, and the satellite hands the connection off to a ground station. As the plane moves, different satellites come into range while others pass out of it. The connection is transferred between the satellites during the trip.

Airbus Patents Windowless Cockpit That Would Increase Pilots' Field of View

rezme Re:Failsafe? (468 comments)

"Deadstick" landings can, and do, happen with controls that are "wired to high heaven". That's pretty hard to pull off when you can't see the runway.

Replying again to the proper comment

It doesn't have a cellular radio and neither do that tablets.

Might be crazy, but I'm seeing nothing here but a grammatical error
