Australia on the cusp of showing the world how to break encryption


Re: Idiots

You clearly haven't been paying much attention in history class. To suggest that Australia is riding on Trumpkin's coat tails is a massive stretch. This effort is tame compared to other laws they've had in place for decades.

That was quick: Seattle rushes to kill tax that would mildly inconvenience Amazon


Seattle rushes to kill JUST ANOTHER tax that would be passed on to consumers.


You people and your lack of ECON 101.

I've got way too much cash, thinks Jeff Bezos. Hmmm, pay more tax? Pay staff more? Nah, let's just go into space


Re: Olds

I assume you dropped your Amazon account then, eh?

Gmail is secure. Netflix is secure. Together they're a phishing threat


I brought this *very* thing up with Google six years ago. I still await an answer.

Culture, schmulture. DevOps, agile need to be software-first again


You're suggesting automation doesn't require some level of POC? I suspect most work in an environment where they maintain DEV --> TEST --> STAGE --> PROD. God forbid one just randomly enables some shiny new script directly against prod.

Oh, boy! Uber investors behind CEO sueball say Travis Kalanick won't let the company grow up


"Oh fuck off, it's a taxi app."

And if that's all you see them as, that's all they will be to you. Uber don't see themselves that way and it isn't their ultimate goal. Maybe pick up their business plan someday and educate yourself? Companies like Uber, Tesla (including Hyperloop), and Google among others are going to completely change how we travel in this great blue marble of ours.

It's official: Outages are only the second-worst thing about Comcast


Re: The worst thing about Comcast...

Lucky you. I wish I had the *option* to move to something else.

Man sues date for cinema texting fiasco, demands $17.31


Welcome to the real world, buddy.

They need to make this a class action lawsuit then.

China 'hacked' South Korea to wreck Star Wars missile shield


Re: action and reactiion

You do realize this happened under Obama's watch...

US military makes first drop of Mother-of-All-Bombs on Daesh-bags


Re: Stupid bastards

"When will they learn?" Might want to internalize that. This was less to do with bombing the shit out of ISIS and more to send a clear message to Syria, Iran, Russia and most importantly, North Korea.


Yes, because negotiating with ISIS has been *so* productive!

Verizon's bogus bills tanked my credit score, claims sueball slinger


We don't have to deal with douche nozzles like you?

IBM's Marissa Mayer moment: Staff ordered to work in one of 6 main offices – or face the axe

News Flash: In the U.S., a job is privilege, not right.

Big Tech files anti-Trump brief: Immigration ban illegal and damaging to business


Re: time for CA to CAEXIT from the Union?

I resent that remark.

Uncle Sam sues Oracle for 'screwing over Asian, black and women staff'


Re: Oracle's response:

Huh? It was filed under the Obummer administration, not Trumpkin's. So yes, while the timing is interesting, its Obama's way of giving Larry and Co. the finger (having supported Senator Marco Rubio during the circus...err...presidential campaign).

Oracle exec quits over co-CEO Safra Catz's promise to assist Trump


"but if someone promises to slit my throat I don't come in close for a hug."

Curious, were OK when Obama attempted to negotiate with terrorists in his first term?


"Why the Americans, who are supposed to be true-blood democrats, unable to accept their own Election Verdict?"

Because that's the bleeding-heart, bed-wetting liberal way.


Re: "Planned Register of Muslims"

Exactly. This was never going to happen; and yet here we have all these ass-hats signing pointless "pledges" that they won't help build a registry. As if they were ever asked to do so. It was never going to be built in the first place.

Re: such poor reading comprehension

Come to California. Allow me to give you a personal tour of one of our many state penitentiaries filled with illegal immigrants from Mexico and Latin American countries.

Trump wasn't wrong.

Maybe it was you who missed something: How to do any basic research.

Silicon Valley's oligarchs got a punch in the head – and that's actually good thing


The rich got a hell of a lot richer under Obama's 8 years, so as you were saying?

Hewlett Packard Enterprise hiring temps to cover for redundancies - sources


Depends on where the position is located. In the U.S. many states like California are "at will", meaning an employer can terminate an employee at any time for any reason.

Bay Area man forced out of his $400 box home


Re: fire hazard

Maybe if you and the rest of the clowns here did any homework before commenting, you'd know that isn't what is primarily being called out via the housing codes enforcement. Almost all local building ordinances have minimum room size requirements. It makes sense on several levels to have this, including the ability to get out fast *in the event of a fire* or in the case of California, an earthquake.

Sweden 'secretly blames' hackers – not solar flares – for taking out air traffic control


I find it interesting no one has pointed out that it was done at great risk of innocent flying passengers. I'd be all up in Russia's shit if I were Sweden.

FAA doubles Section 333-exemption drone ceiling to 400 feet


Fly by night

"the small UAVs have to be flown _in daylight_ within sight of the operator"

Apparently I'm blind. Where does it say that exactly that one can't fly a drone at night?



Do you qualify as poor in Palo Alto? Spoiler: Yes, yes, you do


We are too.
