Disabled Woman Denied Entrance To US Due To Private Medical Records

tabooli No conspiracy (784 comments)

I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here... it seems so obvious to me. The first hit for her name + city on google talks about her depression! Not just the page itself, in the goddamn description meta tag (as of yesterday, that could be different today because of the story)! It seems to me that border agents may just be Googling people when they want to.

Frank Zappa's Influence On Linux and FOSS Development

tabooli I'm not even going to read it.. (195 comments)

Based on title alone, I have to say that whatever Neckbeard Linux Zealot Hippy wrote/submitted/approved this story should be shot with a ball of his own shit.

The Genius In Apple's Vertical Platform

tabooli here's my two cents.. (432 comments)

I believe part of the reason Apple is forced to have "restrictive" development requirements and stringent rules about apps is because they NEED the user experience to be consistently top-notch. Look at all the hate directed at something like Windows by the uninformed.. if an app sucks on Windows, people tend to blame Windows. If Apple allowed for free selection of tools and languages and did not control delivery of apps then it would be much more difficult for them to provide the proper infrastructure that allows MOST apps to feel like a real Apple experience.

Canadian Libraries Want $300,000 To Buy Games

tabooli did anyone ask? (229 comments)

I had a quick look at this and other articles and the TPL website and found no mention of how they arrived at this decision. Did they ask young people what they wanted? Formally? Informally?

Is my bandwidth shared with a horde of 9-year-olds playing the latest Britney video (or their dads, playing certain other videos)?

ISP trespassing

tabooli tabooli writes  |  more than 6 years ago

tabooli (927310) writes "My ISP (Rogers) has been adding a lot of really "interesting" features lately. If you're using the ISP supplied DNS and you request a url that doesn't look like www.domain.tld, they forward you to a page full of their ads. They're also (I cannot provide proof at this time) injecting ads in to sites. They'll push the content down 200 pixels or so and throw a flash banner in there. I know that the EULA I agreed to states that they can change the service and EULA at any time, but can anyone suggests ways to get around these changes? I could filter requests for any domains owned by them, but something ELSE must be done! I don't even know where to start. Petitions? The CRTC?"
