  • Bill Maher declares Apple CSAM tools a 'blatant constitutional breach'

    Bill Maher. Newsman? Errrr, not exactly. Technical expert? Errrr, not exactly. Credible? Errrr…

    Washed up hack? Yeah, that's the ticket.

    You're not in her place.  You have ZERO insight into this.  You're a male, at that.  
    "You're a male, at that."

    Nuff said.
  • Tesla's Elon Musk backs Epic, calls App Store fees a 'de facto global tax'

    Huh? How long have I been asleep? Are software makers now required to go through the App Store?
  • Virulent Windows 'XLoader' malware is now on macOS

    Hmm, who is sounding the alarm on this? Oh, it's Check Point Security.

    Would they have any incentive to spread fear among the masses?

    Lots of woke Snowflakes at Apple and all these tech companies. They need to see what other people have to endure to make a living.
    The entitled of today don't seem to be able to look beyond their own little selves, and for that I pity them. 

    I suppose this is what you get when a generation or two have been deprived of exposure to world history, not to mention the concept of gratitude.
    To a large degree I think you are right on.  With apologies to the many history teachers out there who try their best, world history as it is taught in American public schools has been an abomination and an afterthought for decades.  We are now reaping the fruits of the woeful ignorance of the younger generation in the work force.  Spoiled from childhood, they have no concept of the struggles of previous generations and what they had to do to put food on the table.

    Most of our history lessons, however, are learned through life experience.  And these young individuals at Apple are about to experience, as they say, a “teachable moment.“  Good luck to them.
    Can you imagine if today's generation were thrust back into WWII, risking their lives under the most trying, miserable circumstances? An Axis victory would have been assured.

    It's doubtful today's entitled generation could even imagine such sacrifice, let alone understand how their abundant freedoms come directly from all that sacrifice made not so long ago.
