Don't go walking into any doorknobs, fanboy.
Essentially, Apple’s patent provides for a device to investigate a user’s identity, ostensibly to determine if and when that user is “unauthorized,” or, in other words, stolen. More specifically, the technology would allow Apple to record the voice of the device’s user, take a photo of the device’s user’s current location or even detect and record the...
Linux. Can you Digg it? (No.)
“In early 2009, new popular Linux stories would pop up every day or two on Digg,” Vaughan-Nichols wrote. “By mid-2010, Linux stories on Digg became popular only once every week or so.” Indeed, Linux Girl can’t help but note that she has noticed this too! As have I. It’s the main reason I lost interest in Digg. With no cool Linux news on the site, it just...

But even then, we’ll still have the damned Democrats to deal with. At least they’re spineless.
Alt Text: It’s a Fee-for-All as Credit Card...
People with personalized credit cards that incorporate a photo of their car will be charged a $200 “douche charge.” Now that one I could actually get behind. The rest of them are probably on the way. You might think these fees are ridiculous, but remember that, while being able to charge people money for spending money may seem like an easy road to profit, it’s a slightly more difficult road to...

Epic win for justice!
Today the GAYS (insert horror-movie scream) won a great victory against injustice. The judge took apart the flimsy rationales behind California’s Prop 8 piece by piece (I started reading at page 133). Including the hokum that schoolchildren would be taught homosexuality.

Being rich is not about how much money you have or how many homes you own; it’s the freedom to buy any book you want without looking at the price and wondering if you can afford it. John Waters (via 52books)
