Amazon Cloud Not Big Enough For Feds and WikiLeaks

sakasune Re:You mean there's only one cloud? (204 comments)

Why aren't we all making our own little clouds?

Fart jokes. They never go out of style.

They may never go out of style, but sometimes they stink...

Underwear Invention Protects Privacy At Airport

sakasune Re:Well... (325 comments)

When you obscure genitalia, only the outlaws will have genitalia.

More accurately, only the outlaws will wear underwear.

Actually, only outlaws will have obscured genitalia. Also reminds me a Futurama quote where one of the cops said "And unblur your face, too!"

Heroic Engineer Crashes Own Vehicle To Save a Life

sakasune Re:Burnout (486 comments)

No, I think GP's comment was just OT because he has Sally Ride's house bugged and that was the last thing she said this morning...really has no place in this discussion of blowing up 100 cars for bonus points ;-)

College Student Finds GPS On Car, FBI Retrieves It

sakasune Re:Dont' call your lawyer? (851 comments)

The ACLU is already involved. FTA:

Brian Alseth from the American Civil Liberties Union in Washington state contacted Afifi after seeing pictures of the tracking device posted online and told him the ACLU had been waiting for a case like this to challenge the ruling.

Comcast Warns Customers Suspected of Bot Infection

sakasune Re:Mixed feelings (196 comments)

Not everyone reads the bills or even gets paper bills. When I had Comcast, they removed a channel from their lineup and the only message was on the paper bill. Since I was paperless, I would have had to open the PDF on their site to know that. I never opened the PDFs because my bill was always the same...if they were charging me X, I knew it was right and paid it, no need to look at the itemized bill.

CIA Drones May Have Used Illegal, Inaccurate Code

sakasune Re:Wow. (279 comments)

The bad news: If you use nukes, then coders will get even more lazy and feel they don't have to use asserts and end up being so off that the drones nuke New Jersey instead of Afghanistan.

I'm from New Jersey, you insensitive clod!

The good news: Such as catastrophe just be enough to take Jersey Shore off the air.

Well, what are we waiting for?!?

Today's Children Are Officially Potty Mouths

sakasune Re:Out of the mouths of babes (449 comments)

But despite all the curse words, none of them were as cringeworthy as when, at her 3rd birthday party, she laid on her back, pulled up her skirt and shouted to all and sundry:

"TICKLE MY LA-LA!"

Who taught her that?

Steve Jobs Tries To Sneak Shurikens On a Plane

sakasune Re:It was a public airport (661 comments)

Heck, he could have found an apple fan-boy in line in the terminal who would have checked them and mailed them to him from the USA for the chance to shake his hand.

...or an iPhone 4 that gets a signal ;)

Apple Patents "Enforceable" Ad Viewing On Devices

sakasune Re:Customer Service : My Screen is Broken (439 comments)

You bring up an interesting point about which I've always wondered; how is it legal for a company to change the ToS, and still claim that a customer "signed" it? Are all contracts "update-able" in the same manner? What language would I have to use when writing a contract to reflect that property?

IANAL, but I think the language would be something like "subject to change without notice" although I'm not really sure how that would hold up in court

Microsoft Raises $3.8B in Bond Sale

Sorry I'm late to the party, but I just wanted to throw my 2 cents in...I can't find an article with the exact details, but I believe they paid off their debt in 2004. Here's an article about them paying off all their debt: http://macdailynews.com/index.php/weblog/comments/2622/

Crimes to be featured on a NJ municpal web site

sakasune sakasune writes  |  more than 6 years ago

sakasune (772886) writes "A New Jersey shore town, Belmar, is going to start mapping and sharing all crimes that occur in the municipality. From the article, "The yet-to-be-named site will use a Google Earth map to track all police activity, code-enforcement violations and even first-aid responses in the borough, the chief said. Users will be able to click on an area of the map to view all incidents logged for a particular address, or perform searches based on date, location or type of incident."
I think its kind of cool, yet scary at the same time for the privacy concerns. They say they will post only addresses or street names, but no names. Apparently this kind of thing is already in place in San Francisco and Coral Springs, FL."
