Study: People Are Biased Against Creative Thinking

terbo Re:The problem: (377 comments)

You realise that it is unscientific to prove or disprove a god right? You simply cannot have a scientific concensus on the matter outside of a god isn't needed to explain the world. If it is more then that, it simply isn't scientific because you cannot test supernatural beings or events.

Yet.

terbo Re:false flag? (149 comments)

The snowden leaks almost seem like a false flag type situation.

Obvious troll. Snowden is infallable. We must believe in him.

How Long Do You Want To Live?

terbo Life, the lesson (813 comments)

I'd say getting to see my grand kids would be the ultimate.
Telling them a few of the things I had seen first hand.

Beyond that, immortality seems silly, some come here
to learn lessons, but want to stay in school, apparently.

Health and longevity have been simple, good thoughts,
good diet, good exersize, and good company.

"McDonald's did not disclose how many people were impacted .."

I saw a sign that said, "99 Million customers hacked".

The Economics of Federal Cloud Computing Analyzed

terbo Re:Ask the experts: what is cloud computing? (85 comments)

"That term is so vague, or shall we say nebulous, that it can't be used for meaningful statements."
"Don't pay attention to who has your data, or who controls all of the computing you do, just ignore it."

Thanks a lot for the video and link/post. I wonder why googling 'a free digital society'
does not find it. Not even the FSF page has much info on the talk.

Repulsive Force Discovered In Light

terbo Nice. But. (176 comments)

While discovering new properties of old phenomena is interesting,
does anyone ever question the 'bravado' of the wording of such
discoveries?

Does it inhibit later discoveries, in creating artificial limitations
through language and subsequently expectation?

Epic Sticking With Classic Controllers For Now

terbo Re:Hope they don't .. (64 comments)

The fact that this post is modded as flamebait shows how these ideas
are merely being censored, instead of discussed.

But, maybe you don't want to know that you *may* be supporting war and
murder with your way of life, so you can play video games and use ipods.

Either way. It will come to an end.

Secrets of Schizophrenia and Depression "Unlocked"

terbo This has got to be propaganda. (334 comments)

Until something changes, I have to treat this as more propaganda.
When the same press release admits to many other factors in these
"diseases" and even its own "medicine" system to be at fault, this just
sounds like more dribble.

"The site has come as a surprise to the archaeologists who had thought that the area had been studied in such depth that few discoveries of such magnitude remained."

Maybe their thoughts are limiting them ...

Google users sue company over 'deceptive' privacy changes

terbo terbo writes  |  more than 2 years ago

terbo writes "Three Google users have filed a lawsuit against Google Inc. over changes to its privacy policy that combines user information across a number of company services." A Google blog post responds "our updated Privacy Policy makes our privacy practices easier to understand, and it reflects our desire to create a seamless experience for our signed-in users.", “The rapid innovation in technology, which is wonderful, must not also become an open invitation to violate people’s privacy .." voiced a Senator calling for a privacy change.
".. it was revealed that Android Apps can copy photos without explicit user permission, iphone and now google android phones give access to users photo libraries when given access to the locational services. ", "The reasoning behind Android’s ability to let app developers access personal smartphone photos without permission is understandable, but it actually goes against a core Android design principle." says a blog addressing the problem."
