    Oregon Regulators OK 'Gigabit' Tax Breaks

    I hate it when they use subjective terms like "affordable" or "within reasonable" when writing law. Affordable to whome? Reasonable to whome? By what standard are they measured? Ugh.

    The biēm Butter Sprayer Kickstarter

    Popcorn yes! Looks messy though I foresee greasy counter tops. I must be one of those "cooking guys" as I can't say I've ever burned butter. I also know better than to use cold butter for...well anything.

    Intel Accelerates Path to 5G

    I've seen two sides of this coin tossed around: 1. Bigger better faster yay! 2. Faster downloads just means I hit my data cap faster. I think I'm just neutral and don't really care either way.

    Smartphones Don't Kill Pedestrians, Cars Do

    Sorry I live in the city where there are traffic lights and cross walks. So I only partially "yield" to the paragraph quoted above. ;-)

    Smartphones Don't Kill Pedestrians, Cars Do

    The laws DO vary from state to state. I come from the strictest state: Minnesota. Law states "Vehicle must STOP if a pedestrian is in ANY portion of the roadway". There is no leeway and you will get your license revoked for hitting any pedestrian.

    Smartphones Don't Kill Pedestrians, Cars Do

    It doesn't matter what the pedestrian was doing. Pedestrians have right-of-way even if they are jay-walking, walking backwards, walking on their hands, standing in the middle of the road, or crawling on their hands and knees. Cars must ALWAYS yield to a pedestrian.

    82 Year Old Great-Grandmother Accused Of Piracy

    In the directors own words, "they don't actually make a demand for money". Then why does #3 demand payment? Sounds like a bunch of scam artists grasping at any hanging fruit they can find. Scum of the earth.

    Aggressive IRS Scammers Resort To Swatting

    Anybody who responds to a phonecall is not too bright. The IRS does business through the mail so you would receive an official letter stating their intent and not a phonecall.

    Homeless People Lose Internet Access Over Illegal Downloads

    This is severly poor planning. Free internet access shouldn't be "wide open" enough to p2p anyways. If they truly want them to get a job, the internet experience should be more gated towards finding a job, not finding entertainment.

    California Trying To Ban Sale Of Encrypted Smartphones

    I wouldn't buy a car in CA either. Why pay extra for CA emissions when you can go somewhere else?

    California Trying To Ban Sale Of Encrypted Smartphones

    They aren't banning all encrypted phones, only sales of encrypted phones. You can come and go as you want to with a phone you bought previously, or from somewhere else.
