Bill Clinton's Lost Tape: I Could Have Killed Osama Bin Laden
Thu Jul 31, 2014
The part where he said, "...and I nearly got him once", I believe refers to a different opportunity. He ordered Tomahawks on two locations, one of which they had intel Osama was hiding. The Taliban announced Osama survived the attack, but nobody is certain Osama was actually present when t …
'Willful Ignorance': Ex-Auditor Blasts GM for Cutting Safety Program
Fri Jul 11, 2014
We see this happening in software, too. Back in '90s, it was popular to hack websites and deface home pages. Companies suddenly took security seriously, and hired people to fortify their websites against attack. Many of these security people were the first to be laid off when the recession hit …
U.S. Supreme Court Pulls the Plug on Aereo's Streaming TV Service
Wed Jun 25, 2014
On a related note, the FCC allowed Comcast and other cable companies to scramble their re-transmitted signals of ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS and other "locally broadcasted" channels, which my service did last August.

Fri Jun 6, 2014
The films listed that Banderas was a part of are nice movies, sure. But his fans will always remember him as El Mariachi (well, the second one, anyway...)
Kitchen remodel cost: Where to spend and how to save
Thu Jun 5, 2014
In reply to: Kerry Hadouche #1 Agreed. Nothing from IKEA looks "amazing". And particle board cabs will begin to degrade and warp after a few years in a moist environment like a kitchen. Besides: one size does not fit all, so expect alignment issues and wasted space with cookie-cutter boxes. Dis …
Will AT&T, DirecTV Deal Cut Customers' Prices?
Mon May 19, 2014
Years ago, AT&T purchased Viacom. One of the first things they did was to get a court order from a judge to force @Home to shut down their service after @Home refused to sell at far below their necessary asking price. After about a week of no service, I had high-speed Internet again. Turns …
'NFL Now' app to offer personalized football video stream
Thu Jan 30, 2014
The NFL already has a mobile app that has almost every feature listed in this article: it's called NFL Mobile. I suppose one massive difference is that Verizon customers get to watch live feeds of TNF, SNF and MNF games on NFL Mobile. So the new app removes that feature for everyone now, eh? Some hi …

Wed Jan 8, 2014
Not a single person has mentioned laserdisc yet :sad: Yes, I still have my laserdisc player. It's sitting directly underneath my VCR. On a shelf in the garage... Ever since I built a WMC machine back in 2004, I just have no use for them anymore.
