SOPA is dead. Are you happy now?


It's all about the money

The unfortunate reality is this SOPA discussion will not happen.

MPAA and RIAA let this thing cool off and will continue to sue freetards for downloading Bieber off some torrents. The same Congress idiots keeps getting re-elected cuz their constituents thinks Congress fought off SOPA. Tech world continues to run business as usual and ignore this whole thing.

And then the cycle starts anew when MPAA decides to bang the Piracy Drums again and try to push the same bill with a different name.

While we are at it...

If we're going to mess about with the time, can we - please oh please! - get rid of daylight saving time?

No one needs Blu-ray, says Microsoft exec


Haven't they been wrong before?

I can't see streaming being the main delivery vehicle for the mass market. Putting a movie in is very much ingrained for the average consumer and far simpler than setting up all the hardware and connections for streaming.

Beside, streaming HD content is like listening to music with those cheap Apple headphones. Stream HD audio in more than 2 channels? Unpossible!

Prosecutor won't resign over lewd texts to 'hot' crime victim


He's totally loaded

A $350,000 house in Wisconsin is like a $15,000,000 penthouse in NYC. She's so missing out!

Chinese hurl $1.5bn into NFC city

Thumb Down

Can someone...

remind me why a cell phone has anything to do with a payment system? Oh I know, it's so operators can charge you for every transaction and a monthly NFC fee.

Alt rock diva's nude snap 'leaked' to tweetosphere

Thumb Down


Just checked out the band and a few tracks....it's about as interesting as her tweets. Maybe some "leaked" videos might help.......

Boobquake fails to destroy planet


For Science

This kind of breakthrough research must be peer reviewed and reproducible by independent bodies (preferably immodest). And what is the critical point? Is it one boob or two or many all at once....

Excuse me, I'll be in my bunk.
