'Knucklehead' Kansas bloke shoots self in foot


What for?

Totally understand our fellow Americans wants to disprove Darwin for the sake of the state religion.

Still wonder why, though, they seems to involve others in their collective quest for the Award.

The next Cuban gristle crisis: US Navy warship powered by beef fat


"The Great Green Fleet shows how we are transforming our energy use to make us better warfighters, to go farther, stay longer and deliver more firepower. In short, to enable us to provide the global presence that is our mission."

What if they stay home, bombing no one, taking care of their own country, smoothing out contrast and come out with a humbler approach to others? We really do not need a yet another police state that systematically pursues his own agenda. You know, just for a change!:)

Trump's new thought bubble: Make Apple manufacture in the USA


On dinosaurs and other odd animals

Why on earth are we still paying attention to this old trumpet?

I mean, having absolutely no technology literacy, no idea on productive process, and no clue on how things work should be enough evidence for everyone to just walk away.

Good luck Apple producing micro components in the USA:

1) Try to get China to export enough prime materials (Neodymium, anyone?) to keep the pace of actual production.

2) Try to have americans work at the same wage of chineses and still be able to live the american dream.

3) Apple stuff is already IExpensive, wonder how big the loan would be to buy a laptop fully made in America!:)

His words are so offensive to common sense to be beyond ridiculous.



Apple coughs up $350m – 2.3 days of annual profit – to make Italy's taxmen go away


That does not surprise me.

Italian govt is spiraling down trying to keep incomes high enough to maintain the delicate equilibrium of bribery alive. Without the grease, mouths will start speaking and angels falling.

Apple is not the first to have coughed up, guess will not be the last.



'Shut down the parts of internet used by Islamic State masterminds'




I mean, why on earth are those people allowed to speak and take decision on something clearly beyond their comprehension? Aware humans should understand by themselves when the time to smile, bow, and go is finally arrived.

It is the very same script all over again:

Blag flag operation --> Death of civilians under the spotlights of every media possible to spread the news ---> retaliation and enforcement of other security measures aimed to prevent attacks but generating more revenues and casually used for spying on others (citizens, neighbors countries, supposed allies) ---> repeat, with more nasty technology.

Are we really so blind and addicted to this that cannot eventually break the circle? Oh come on Humanity, we are much better than that!

TPP: 'Scary' US-Pacific trade deal published – you're going to freak out when you read it


Old soup.

First agreement of such magnitude for the 21th century has been realized with processes dating back to the cold war era.

Honestly, i would not sign an agreement which is presented as "made by america, for american business and american people". What about the rest of the people involved? Guess they do not count.

...and by the way, if someone deem normal that a country that tries to protect his own shore from fracking needs to agree to pay 130m to a company for loss of profit, guess there are some serious issues to worry about...



Linus Torvalds fires off angry 'compiler-masturbation' rant


Some need to man up, and dislodging their heads from the sand without whining would be useful too.

Let's handle it logically.

A writes code

B has more experience than A

B review that code and shit hits the fan

A starts whining about his precious code being shred to bits.

Seriously? What do we need now, kindergartens for adults?

There is a huge difference between a personal assault and an experienced criticism to a sloppy job. Time to grow up?:)



Conference Wi-Fi biz fined $750k for jamming personal hotspots



Hold on, an hammer is an available-out-of-the-box tool.

Following their same reasoning, smashing their APs should be feasible. Then, as compensation, would gladly sell them new APs and charge them for their reconfiguration at a favorable price.

After all could always say that i did not know it was a blatant violation of the law!:)

CIA boss uses AOL email – and I hacked it, claims stoner teen


On obsolescence and technical incompetence.

Can't understand why CIA, FBI and untold flocks of journalist would be after that kid. He only exposed a bad habit of a old man copying mail here and there. Eh? what do you say? Security? Secrets?

Still wonder why we still trust some tech-inept to manages high security information. System is flawed, and the world is chasing the ones that find where it's leaking to put them in jail.

If correct isolation process would have have been in place, that kid would have found tits and viagra spam only like in everyone's email. End of the story.

Just my 2 cents.


White House 'deeply disappointed' by Europe outlawing Silicon Valley


Well, sorry for your disappointment. Duly noted.

Wonder when EU will be considered soon another terrorist country to pacify and democratize. :)
