Re: “Google hopes designer frames will sharpen Glass

I read about a guy named Robert Scoble who brags about wearing his glasses in public restrooms. Making this privacy wrecking trash look like "normal" glasses and you can be sure there will be all sorts of incidents of men and women having their trips to the restroom posted online. and worse. I'm sure Google will disavow all responsibility, insisting because they told people not to be creeps, that gets them off the hook. So, say a perv takes a shot of you or your child on the toilet. Or at the urinal. It's online, it will always be online, you will never get any justice for this violation, nor will anyone help you. O brave new world, that has such creeps in it . ..

Re: “BAE report says Ukraine has faced cyberattacks

Why don't we just mind our own business and let that part of the world settle its own problems? It's not like we haven't got our long meddlesome nos stuck into foreign entanglements as it is.

Re: “New gender options for Facebook users

Again, typical Liberals... deny the reality of 99.999% of the population just to please a small handful of people. Anything to smash society's conventions and deny the existence of human nature. Which is what this really about.

Re: “New gender options for Facebook users

"Really, there was no debate within Facebook about the social implications at all," said Alex Schultz, director of growth. "It was simple: Not allowing people to express something so fundamental is not really cool so we did something. Hopefully a more open and connected world will, by extension, make this a more understanding and tolerant world."

Hmmm... my guess is that no debate was even allowed on the topic. And that anyone who suggested anything wrong with the idea would be hung from the nearest tree.

Talk about, "Not allowing people to express something so fundamental!" There are few things more fundamental than the fact that there are two genders.

Re: “Facebook, other banned sites to be open in China free trade zone

If the blood-thirsty Chinese Communist Party ever lost its total control over its media, that would be the day of its demise and the brutal CCP is fully aware of this fact. Since 1949, the CCP has murdered over fifty million of its own people and is now systematically annihilating the tens of millions of innocent Falun Gong practitioners who live in Red China. This heinous attempted genocide is using torture, enslavement, organ harvesting and murder. One doctor, employed by the CCP, just confessed to removing the corneas from two thousand living human beings, leaving them blind. If these millions of human rights atrocities ever become public knowledge, the CCP will be finished. This is my understanding, thank you.

Re: “New Microsoft CEO faces big choices post-Ballmer

"About 18 months to two years ago, Ballmer started thinking seriously about a succession plan, the internal source said."
So why didn't Ballmer publicly announce his intention to depart then? And why would you allow an economically impactful company to go through a year or two of uncertain leadership? Perhaps Microsoft can take a page out of the longevity of companies like 3M - who for example, on Dec 21, 2010 (as reported by the Wall Street Journal) “…3M rose 97 cents, or 1.1 percent to 87.34 following Reports that the company is working with Chief Executive George Buckley on a succession plan.” Strategy is a lot less stressful to pull off when you have continuity.

Re: “Facebook no longer lets users hide from search

There are many women who are in mortal danger of ex husbands and lovers stalking them and killing them.
This is completely irresponsible on the part of Facebook. Thank you for letting me know. I will be registering my complains with them and women's protection organizations.

Re: “Twitter unseals IPO papers, hopes to raise $1B

The essayist writes that Twitter has a “history of losses … $419 million,” subtract $317-million in 2012 revenue = -$102-million. Also, Twitter has never turned a profit and has an uninterrupted history of losses ...” Twitter is already more than $102-million in the red (it's a debtor). It's another thimblerig folks. You may as well give me the $1-billion cash from these issues. I don't owe anybody and have no intention of cheating anyone out of the money that they lend me. The essay is an admission that Twitter is selling a Ponzi scheme to those of you who are thinking about buying shares.

Re: “Facebook, other banned sites to be open in China free trade zone

we got youtube banned in our region but whats the big deal, there are billions of proxy sites and even free tools to access those blocked content so what is the use of blocking the website or video portal. Make no sense for me.

Re: “Al-Jazeera America prepares for Tuesday launch, acquisition of Current TV

I live in San Francisco and subscribe to Comcast Xfinity and Current TV on 107 has never been included, a fact I find incredible since Current is located in my city. Terrible, but I'm not expecting to see Al Jazeera anytime soon, a failure of major proportions. I love their website and would love to watch their TV but Comcast has their blinkers firmly on

Re: “Twitter adds security measure to logins

about time. traditionally in the net world, only a single user & password. how about multiple passwords? if hackers bypass one, they must hit two others. yes, no???

Re: “Twitter adds security measure to logins

Thank you Twitter for doing this, we don't want our accounts to be hacked and for that you need to work on the security part.
