Time spent with a newspaper in 2006 and in 2010

What I think is interesting in this story from Gizmodo is the fact that they wear a yellow badge. Wasn’t Germany famous for making its Jewish citizens wear a yellow star? Did someone skip their history class?

War is not the answer. Then what is?

?p=1568 from – StumbleUpon. This is one persons reaction to the news of the deaths in Libya. I responded with this:

I agree that war is not the answer. However if you are going to take the time to write this, why not think of an alternative solution. Gadaffi hasn’t listened to reason either.

Is this war any more defensible than what he is doing? Did you read this one?

Now which is worse? Killing the man/family who allows this to happen or for more to suffer? The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few do they not?

If we viewed all children as our own we might be more inclined to kill Gadaffi. Would you want that to happen to any children?

Is Super Wi-Fi the next step for wireless devices?

Houston Grandma Is Nations First. Wouldn’t it be cool to just be wireless everywhere? It still is amazing that this hasn’t been done more at a local level.

Would you trust the government to clean a virus off your computer? I must admit that I wouldn’t feel comfortable. It wouldn’t be that hard to install monitoring software as well.

I’ll be honest and admit I’ve heard little about the botnet being referred to as Coreflood. Apparently it did something nasty enough to gain the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) though: Two weeks ago, the DOJ and the FBI obtained an unprecedented temporary restraining order that allowed them to seize five command-and-control (C&C) servers that managed Coreflood. Since then, the U.S. Marshal’s Service has operated substi … Read More

I commented on this article and said this:
Interesting. Why is there always money and time to catch the average citizen, but never enough to investigate and prosecute companies that make millions of dollars? Maybe having a Facebook account will help the government find out the truth of the BP oil spill.

Even the White House is helping this process. or click here.

U.S. Feds get warrants to mine Facebook accounts As if Facebook wasn’t already enough of a data mining operation, judges are allowing Feds to access account information such as addresses, telephone numbers, friends’ lists in order to… you guessed it: ‘fight crime’. By Robert Snell The Detroit News April 25, 2011 Federal investigators in Detroit have taken the rare step of obtaining search warrants that give them access to Facebook accounts of suspected criminals. The warrants let investigator … Read More
