In a brazenly optimistic attempt to see the good in something that annoys the hell out of me, I will note with interest that "bae" is coming into common usage as a completely gender-neutral pronoun. That may actually be enough for me to, if not actually use it, at least be encouraged by it.

Resist, I hate that word just as much as tots or any other millennial shortened word.

So, to be clear here, the defendant was guilty of carrying a weapon because the item he was carrying did not qualify as a weapon?

You've disappointed me this time, Justice González. Let's not make this a habit.
 
A divided Washington Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a Seattle law prohibiting people from carrying fixed-blade knives such as kitchen utensils for self-defense does not conflict with the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.

Just skimmed the ruling. Nice dissent Justice Fairhurst. I'll be keeping an eye on you.

I would contend also that by requiring that an "arm" be designed primarily for an offensive purpose, as opposed to a more general tool like a paring knife, you disenfranchise the poor, who may be less able to afford single-purpose tools. I would answer the majority opinion's question then: Yes, a rolling pin or frying pan could be a constitutionally-protected arm.

Yay! Google Music Family Plan is now available!

Boo! Once again, Google Apps users aren't supported.

I do not understand why they don't want paying customers to have other paid features....

Actually, Jackson's own record diminishes him just fine. Good riddance.

So, if this passes, I see a huge market in New York for cheap decoy phones to hand off to the police in the event of an accident.

With NYC's Stop-and-frisk policy, they would probably just take both phones instead.

The feature what mobile electronics need, is a passive deadman switch. The device notification requiring security check 3 times a day or detects an unauthorized device on the usb port, a system wipe initiated without the owner's intervention.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I can tell, the only reason Apple even has to fight against the judge's order is that iOS is written to allow Apple to force an operating system update onto your phone, without your consent. If Apple didn't have such a passion for controlling their users, this whole thing would be a non-issue, because they would literally be unable to do anything.

I still believe it's a good thing that they're fighting. They'd just have a much stronger case if they hadn't left their own back door in the OS.

So, +Citibank US, let's talk about who has the problem here.

Thinking about it, I suspect what happened is that the smallest "minimum payment" is something like $25, and since my automatic payment is $22.91, that triggered a bit of shoddy code.

Ah, he was one of the people in involved in that case. Definitely I don't feel sorry for him, but somehow I wasn't sure if this was going to turn into "mothers demand action" claiming this was a cop shot in the line of duty.

Old habits die hard, don't they +Microsoft? If you're going to give it away, then give it away and offer it as a straight download, too, rather than force me into one of a handful of walled gardens.

Room was adequate, typical for a budget motel. Internet was solid, but slow. My biggest complaint was that there was a single ice machine for the entire massive complex. Overall, I'd say it was ok, but not worth the price premium over other budget motels.
