Richard Stallman Answers Your Questions

toddmbloom And yet there's probably no question (527 comments)

About why he said things like incest, pedophilia, and child pornography should be legal because of free speech?

Why would anyone care what this douchebag thinks?

Third 2012 US Presidential Debate Tonight: Discuss Here

toddmbloom Re:Socialist agenda on full display tonite (529 comments)

Your civic duty is to vote for the candidate that you feel matches your interest and that you feel would do a good job at running the country.

Sorry, but saying you have a civic duty to vote for the Democrat or Republican but not a third party is just stupid. If they're on the ballot... VOTE FOR THEM.

Third 2012 US Presidential Debate Tonight: Discuss Here

toddmbloom Re:Socialist agenda on full display tonite (529 comments)

How is Obama a "socialist" when the stock market has been seeing record numbers and he just passed a health care which was a product of the Insurance industry and the Heritage Foundation? Why are Americans so ignorant about this? Because of Fox News and the rest of the terrible American Media?

Regardless, screw what anyone says about who you should vote for. Vote for the person you want to not the person that they say you should. I'm voting for Jill Stein because I believe that we need a third party. If she doesn't win, that's fine but at least I can live with the fact that I didn't sell out my values just because someone said to vote for the candidate that has the backing of millions of dollars of special interest money.

Apple Patents Alternative To NFC

toddmbloom Re:Betamax, here we come... (171 comments)

Who is this "rest of the world"? I haven't agreed on anything, Joe from down the street hasn't, either.

The 'standards' that you go on about are simply a guideline set by a group of people that have the interests of whoever they're working for at heart. I'm sick of all this harping about "standards" being the holy grail, be-all-end-all of technology.

I don't know, why don't you ask John McCain? I think they do matter considering that picking someone like Sarah Palin can torpedo a campaign.

iOS 6 Adoption Tops 25% After Just 48 Hours

toddmbloom Re:Good luck with those new map service. (513 comments)

Nerds on the Internet complaining about something half of them aren't using? Shocking!

Meanwhile, millions of people are using Apple Maps just fine - myself included. I love how people try to compare a service that has been in place for two weeks vs. a service that has been in place for seven years and has collected much more data.

Just because you're in the vocal majority doesn't mean you're right.

And, for the record, Google Maps was never removed from iOS because it was never on iOS.

Mozilla OS Looking Grown Up On Its Own Developer Phone

toddmbloom Re:How is it "negative" to want Firefox improved? (114 comments)

Firefox 15 is ten times better than Chrome, which I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole.

I can't believe the tech community still clings to the notion that Chrome is good just because they have a false belief that Google is some great bastion of technology when they're not; they're just another pathetic ad company.

Google Blocks 'Innocence of Muslim' Video In Indonesia and India

toddmbloom Re:It's phenomenally rubbish (484 comments)

So they're not bombing abortion clinics or blowing up government centres in Oklahoma? Or not telling everyone how "God Hates Fags" and that the world is going to hell?

There's extremists in every religion; that doesn't mean that every Muslim is somehow a terrorist.

Google Blocks 'Innocence of Muslim' Video In Indonesia and India

toddmbloom Re:What happened to freedom of speech (484 comments)

Hate speech should never be included in any definition of "free speech". The video in question was not made to inform, it was made to offend and inflame.
