Robert Reich: Break Up The Big Banks, Says the... →
robertreich: As the Supreme Court shows every sign of throwing out “Obamacare” and leaving 30 million Americans without health insurance, another drama is being played out in the quiet corridors of the Federal Reserve system that may affect even more of us. Taxpayers will be on the hook for another giant Wall…
Novelr: Word Needs To Die →
streakmachine: I have absolutely no objections to this! People have a bizarre demand for everything they send a receive to be in “Word format”, regardless of what they do. It’s utterly absurd. I’m willing to bet that most people could make do with frakkin’ Notepad (Windows) or TextEdit (Mac OS X). Heck, even Pico (Linux) would be enough for some people! Anyways. Go check out the article, it’s a...

Nexus S: Even Google can’t do Android updates -... →
chartier: James Kendrick: The situation with the Nexus S is not unusual, sadly, and drives home how hard major updates must be to produce for Android devices. Google produces updates directly for flagship phones, and as the platform developer they are obviously the experts. If anybody can produce a quick update it is Google. Google rolled out an ICS update for the Nexus S last December, but...
Square, Intuit and PayPal - oh my!
Well, well, well. I see that both Intuit and Paypal are now getting into mobile payments with Square. I wonder how long it will take for someone to build a credit card reader that not only processes the card, but also logs the details of the card to the smartphone (for later use); put a nice MasterCard or Bank of America logo on it and you’ll fool most people. Or maybe the right question...

The universe is a vast and uncaring place.
swamibooba: There is no right or wrong, morality is a human construct. Nothing we do will have any significance beyond our tiny, worthless, unimportant sphere of influence. Yet here I am, waiting in line to order a veggie sandwich with locally grown ingredients, and holding in a fart.
