What Better Proof Our Legal System is Borked
What better proof that our legal system is borked when if you pay enough lawyers to argue the Prepear logo looks too much like the Apple logo, and not have it thrown out of court at the first try.

Back in the day when I ran various systems for a government shop, updating any flavor of Linux was a pain, but updating Drupal was tempting the apocalypse.
Experience Drupal users know you either stick with the version that runs your site reliably, or your rebuild it from scratch on a newer version if you really have to have some of the new bells and whistles, people would just laugh when you even suggest upgrading from one version to another.
Look no further for proof our public institutions have reached critical infrastructure rot levels.
When the whole governmental system decides it's cheaper to pay off the occasional hacker than budget for decent security or devote police resources to this issue.
It went swoosh right past most commentors, but the recent stock price falls were combined with record high transaction numbers, meaning some-one was buying a boat load of blue chip stocks at bargain prices. 3 guesses who those players are. This is not an economic crisis, it is the accelerated concentration of wealth and resources that are the nature of end stage oligarch capitalism.
News reports fail to put the actual amount of these tariffs in perspective. The total income from the bloated bigot in DC, is less than 1% of the US annual tax income, so this is all just posing and theatre. The stock market volititility has nothing to do with this, but is just the fallout from more and more black box trading.
There is not a single politician in the world that really has a handle on just how bent over the multinationals have us all.
I can see it now, once online sex becomes feasible, I highly doubt the services will invest in sophisticated AI to drive the surrogates but instead, other anon players will drive your 'partnet', operating via a highly restricted window of allowed behavior by the server, while the dialog will be supplied by a huge Markovian server farm. Not PVP, but PFP.
Just another commons wrecked by unhinged Kapitalism.
My email is 99% spam, so don't check it that often.
My phone gets at least 3 to 4 calls a day from telemarketers and scams, so now I don't answer it unless the number is already in my contacts list.
How do you shut down democratic free speech, you deluge it with spam and non-stop advertising.
Concerned about numbers globally not adding up, how about the fact that 1% of the population controls more than 3/4 s of the worlds resources, and their portion has been increasing geometrically the last few years. It's more like, the 1% saying, hey, we got ours, the lot of you can fight for the scraps and work till you drop.
A huge selling point for cloud IT, at least to vain CEO's with secret Trump wannabee tendencies, is that it's one check to write, (which they personally get wined and dined for )and they can make that decision and be done with it, fobbing off the responsibility to make it work on some equally lazy IT director who really hated haivng to manage all those independent bids, contracts, personnel and maintenance issues of in house tech.
More total BS from Microsoft.
Even after slurping my data for a year, they still try to install this update once a week, which invariably fails with the following patented Microsoft error message:
Some apps need to be uninstalled
These programs need to be uninstalled because they aren/t
compatible with the upgrade.
HP AMD Carrizo A10-8700 CPU
Uninstall and Continue
The thing that gauls me the most about this is they BS that they know what they are doing and will look out for the average user, while this kind of stupidity is still being spewn out by their product.
I keep a one smartphone and have never given out it's number in any registrations etc for several years now, and I would never, ever get telemarketing calls.
One year into Win 10 on my new laptop and having given Google my smartphones number (in case I ever forget my Google password...) my smartphone gets daily telemarketing calls.
Thanks big Korps for selling me out.
Yea great theory, if you are willing to accept the fallacy that most consumers have any choice when it comes to internet service. Anytime you have monopolies, without consumer oversight/regulation, your screwed. May be if we had competition in the internet service sector things could be different.
To day my computer would not complete start up. I was able to start it in safe mode, and following Win 10 support instructions I disabled all non microsoft start up services, and then the pc booted fine.
Next by process of restarting with individual non microsoft services enabled, it was clear the HP services were what was hanging. HP support site seems to unaware of this issue.
You can quickly find current blockbuster films, new and old popular music streaming for free from Google along with big corporate paid adverts stitched into the content, and no one, from the copyright holders to the those charged with upholding copyright does a thing. For all intents and purposes Google has executed a fait acomplil with copyrighted digital media.
The mostly non-existent drivers of Linux are why you can't buy PCs at your local store with Linux.
Linux will only play nicely with about 1/10 of existing devices.
Converting any PC in the last 15 years to Linux is always a crap shoot, sure the OS loads, but then the mouse, or the screen, or the sound, or the printer, or the network card don't work.
Don't even try searching Linux forums for solutions or help as you will be met with snarky developers who will heap abuse on you for not being smart enough to write your own driver.
The core problem is that assets are not taxed. Home owners and property holders are taxed. But industry assets are totally tax free, and where multinationals store all profit that they want to avoid taxes. Tax stocks, bonds, real assets, not just salaries and "income."
