stevez67 What he specifically means (450 comments)

Any decision he disagrees with is a) any document or rule he disagrees with is toxic, b) any decision he disagrees with is misguided, and c) he's taking his ball and going home.

stevez67 Re:Nice (66 comments)

Recognizing the value of an asset (e.g. stocks, bonds, paintings, sculptures and etc.) doesn't confer legitimacy as a currency.

Is Public Debate of Trade Agreements Against the Public Interest?

stevez67 Re:Of course not. (219 comments)

There is no democratic process in international treaties and agreements and only a naive person would suggest there was. In international trade, as in any business agreement or contract negotiation, both parties are out to get as much from the other side in the agreement as they can while giving up as little as possible. And as negotiations proceed it's common for things to be included in the bargaining that the proposer has no intention of actually giving away or accepting ... it's just part of the negotiations. Open the negotiations up publicly and no deal would ever be reached because neither side would be allowed to compromise.

Dwarf Galaxies Dim Hopes of Dark Matter

stevez67 Norm makes the original argument with his data (137 comments)

It doesn't matter what you call it ... declining or dilution ... the end result is fewer women in CS career fields than men. The effect is less a less robust CS field and the resulting negatives that come along with a technology field operating with blinders.

And then you connected to the internet to make it all work and your emails and files were routed through Amazon, Google, Facebook and Microsoft datacenters and your effort was wasted.

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).
