Google Cuts Android Privacy Feature, Says Release Was Unintentional
You mean not everyone is using XPrivacy already?!
Ok, live and learn. Like when I actually first saw an ad in an android phone, mine never shows one.
GNU MediaGoblin 0.5.0 "Goblin Force" Released
Aren't we confusing OpenID witn MyOpenID ?
It seems OpenID is live and kicking.
B&N Releases Nook Tablet To Rival Amazon Fire
I still prefer kobo and wait eagerly for the next release.
Meet Firefox's Built-In PDF Reader
You have to be kidding.
Menu bar, Firefox Menu/Options/Menu bar
Status bar, Ctrl+/
You have already been answered about protocol, and I have not seen poor performance, memory usage could be better, but it is clear you are ignorant of Firefox and blowing it out of proportion.
Oracle To Give OpenOffice.org To Apache Incubator
Aren't Oracle and Apache at odds about Harmony
After all, Oracle did all it could to kill Apache Harmony.
Why would Apache take OpenOffice like that! It may be a trap and it wouldn't be the first time.
Potentially Great Sci-fi Films Still Due In 2011
The near-immortal psychic robot is not part of the original trilogy. Is part of the despicable books that came before to link it to the robots series. (which are less awful that the gaia bullshit that came to illustrate the future after the original trilogy)
A Half-Gigabyte View of the Moon
Off course you won't be able to see the moon landing site.
Some will tell you is because of resolution.
I say it is because New Mexico is not in the moon.
What’s the Internet? (on 1994's Today Show)
You may be young and not be aware that are other things besides http.
Back in the day ftp, telnet, gopher, where common stuff, you had to specify to avoid confusion.
Right now," www" is not even necessary in most of the case.
Have you ever wondered why this site has the name it has? It is because of the slash slash and the dot (in those days there were more .edu and .org than .com assuming .com was not your first assumption)
Slashdot Launches Re-Design
You don't get it, it is a contest.
On who can produce the best greasemonkey script to fix this horror.
The winner will get an all web 2.0 no plain html, no unicode, fixed with frames for the rest of his/her life.
Google Researcher Issues How-To On Attacking XP
Wait, are you saying McDonalds is not evil?
I thought it was the sole responsible for fattening up everybody. That alone makes it more evil than Burger King and Microsoft combined.
Oh, sorry you are saying that McDonalds could or could not be evil, just not because an employee is evil.
Hold it, what if the employee robs a bank because of brain damage obtained of all the fat and the "would you like fries" he got at McDonalds?
Food Activist's Life Becomes The Life of Brian
That does not prevent the idolizing of politicians, individually or as a party.
President or party Messiah anyone?
It does not prevent the abuse of the state, just warranties that state has a monopoly on certain kids of abuse.
School teachers accused of pederasty with immunity of prosecution anyone?
Not that I don't support "the separation between church and state. Is like separating good and evil." (That comes form a cartoon of wizard of Id, and cannot help but quote it here).
Venezuela Bans Hostile Videogames and Toys
>Okay, conspiracy theorists. If we are in the "Brave New World", where the fuck is my free drugs and obligatory orgies?
Haven't you seen the education and the fashion being promoted this days. Anyone advocating against drugs and orgies, is ridiculed. We may not be in "Brave New World" already, but we cannot be far.
PA School Spied On Students Via School-Issued Laptop Webcams
You are cutting yourself with the razor.
That is not what "Occam's Razor" is or how it is used.
Occam's Razor is the principle that "entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity".
Not the principle of doubting the capacity of the media (that should be common sense).
Mining EXIF Data From Camera Phones
I never publish photos with any EXIF.
There are tons of utilities out there to remove it, I use this: http://www.sentex.net/~mwandel/jhead/
I still have to silence the cell phone camera. It is annoying.
Mozilla Accepts Chinese CNNIC Root CA Certificate
How do I mark all CAs in Firefox untrusted?
There has to be a better way than change each one manually.
US Grants Home Schooling German Family Political Asylum
That same declaration states: "Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children."
Carriers, Manufacturers Are Strangling Android
Good I have a Nokia 5530, unbranded, unlocked, prepaid chip. No GPS and no 3G (I have a stand alone GPS for when I really need it and 3G is too expensive).
I use the wifi to browse, check mail, play music, read books, keep my agenda, some games, light office applications use, and only occasionally the phone features.
Nokia gets updates from time to time and I can even change it to get the updates of other zones (not officially tough)
Symbian S60 5th may not be the best of the best. But ranks in the top 5. And for 150USD it cost me less than my previous phone.
AT&T Suggests To 300K Employees To Lobby the FCC
You must be new to any government and government like entity.
Photoshop Disaster Draws DMCA Notice For Boing Boing
It is kind of sad to think that some people will think she looks perfectly normal. Event though they have never seen someone like that, just other adds, tv, etc.
Corporations Now Have a Right To "Personal Privacy"
Free speech for corporations? Either that is not true, or is just for profit corporations.
The government (in the USA anyway) has a long story of trying to shut down non for profit corporations that dare to say that a certain candidate is no good.
rimugu has no journal entries.
