Eric Schmidt: Anxiety Over US Spying Will "Break the Internet"

stevez67 What's sauce for the gander is sauce for the goose (179 comments)

Every country (and reasonably sized corporation) on the planet is doing the same thing, always has done the same thing, always will do the same thing. Only fools believe their online activity is safe from snooping or ever will be.

Ross Ulbricht's Lawyer Says FBI's Hack of Silk Road Was "Criminal"

stevez67 Every defendant makes the same claim (208 comments)

Remember the old adage; don't do the crime if you can't do the time. Ross needs to stop whining and pull up his big boy pants and take what he's got coming. If it hadn't been the US gov't it would have been another gov't that took him down. Ross should be happy it was the USA. Some of the less polite gov'ts would have just wacked him, dumped him in the ocean, and saved the legal expenses.

What To Expect With Windows 9

stevez67 Just the basics (545 comments)

Apple Edits iPhone 6's Protruding Camera Out of Official Photos

stevez67 A protruding camera? Srsly? (425 comments)

If the biggest concern is a picture in marketing materials has been altered, people are grasping at straws for drama. After all no one in marketing alters pictures of actors, actresses, models, cars, motorcycles, musical instruments, etc etc etc (your sarcasm alarms should be going off now).

Artificial Spleen Removes Ebola, HIV Viruses and Toxins From Blood Using Magnets

stevez67 Nonesense (106 comments)

The data in the paper is related to bacteria, not viruses. Antibiotics work against bacteria, not viruses. someone needs to try to repeat the experiment and confirm the results. The paper reads more like a patent application than a scientific publication.

stevez67 Re:I Agree (533 comments)

Per person or device. Now, take a standard household of 4-5 persons (family members plus visitors), each with a device, and you need 20Mbps down and 5Mbps up at each household.

Should police have cameras recording their work at all times?

stevez67 Let's be fair (455 comments)

Everyone who thinks police should be subjected to wearing a camera every second they're on duty should also have to wear a camera while at work. If the excuse of "justice" applies to the police, it should apply to everyone.
