If Apple built a Hololens we'd never hear about it

Until it was ready for release. It's just bad product management to tease products that aren't ready for release yet, solve the main problems behind locked doors first.

What if that very "keep everything secret" strategy prevents Apple from building highly experimental products like a HoloLens in the first place.

Submission + - Parliamentary committee can summon Snowden to testify in Germany

multi io writes: The German Federal court of Justice (BGH), the highest court in the country in all matters of ordinary (non-constitutional) law, has ruled that the parliamentary committee investigating the NSA spying scandal may summon Edward Snowden to testify in Germany as a key witness in the case. If the committee decides (with a 25% minority, which seems secure) to go ahead with this, the government must allow Snowden to enter the country and provide appropriate protection against his extradition to the US.

Submission + - German committee may summon Snowden to testify in Germany

multi io writes: The German supreme court (BGH) has ruled (article in German) that the parliamentary committee investigating the NSA spying scandal may summon Edward Snowden to testify in Germany as a key witness in the case. If the committee decides (with at least a 25% minority, which seems secure) to go ahead with this, the government must allow Snowden to enter the country and provide appropriate protection against his extradition to the US.

Comment Re:Steve Bannon, not a racist? (Score 1) 805

I'm genuinely curious, provide links to actual racist quotes made by him.

The summary of this article doesn't count, saying country is also it's citizens besides economy isn't racist

It's "identity politics". As in, you like Asians, but only as long as they live in Asia, while the US stays white and takes no non-European immigrants, not even if they really identify as Americans and love the US constitution and core values. So each country gets its own race and stays with it. And you genuinely wish each country and its people to prosper and flourish, but they should stay separate and not mix. Is that racist? I don't know, I just find it idiotic in general. You see this kind of thinking in Europe too, with "identity movements" popping up all over the place. And it ultimately restricts growth and economic prosperity versus a rational immigration policy that accepts talent from everywhere irrespective of race or origin.

Comment anti-business (Score 1) 235

So the Republicans have now deteriorated to the point where they actively pursue policies that would undermine the US's internet economy, which is leading the world and spurs innovation globally and should be one of the prides of the nation. It's astounding to think that the GOP once used to be the quintessential pro-business party, whereas these days the majority of business leaders support the Democratic Party, if only for the fact that they seem to churn out fewer religious bigots and all-around numbnuts.
