    It isn't the interwebs love of bacon. Bacon is a precious gift from God to all mankind.

    Why Do Not Track is Worse Than a Miserable Failure

    Sho nuff. It's also pretty easy to not mingle your digital life with your physical life. If you're not down with that, maybe you shouldn't be on the intarnets. There's no law against private citizens tracking private citizens once they leave their house. I see no reason why there can't be a...

    Stupid Google Street View Criminal of the Day

    Dis right CHEER. I drink tons and don't smoke nuthin' but the drug war has killed more people and put more in prison than were enslaved in America when it was legal.

    Paypal’s New Direction: Helpful or Hypeful

    Glad damicatz made the point so I didn't have to. Asking for Gaypal to be treated like a bank is only validating their unethical practices by codifying them into law and handing them even more power through their connections with those "regulators." Just like the banks, they'll have Congress...

    Court Affirms $675K Penalty In Music-Downloading Case

    I'd say all of them should be responsible. Those who use stolen credit cards are as guilty as those who steal credit card numbers and post them on the webs or sell them to those people.

    Court Affirms $675K Penalty In Music-Downloading Case

    At first, I thought this fine was outrageous at well. However, he shared it. He made potentially millions of more infringements possible, depriving the rights-holders of potentially millions of dollars in profits. It's not a grey area at all. He definitely deserves more than simply replacing...

    Windows 8 Might Not Be Sold in Stores

    Good. Retail copies were horrendously overpriced anyway.
