+Netflix is being two-faced. Yet another business that puts its profits far and above any other principle.

Of course. It's a for-profit company. Corporations will always seek their own advantage over any principal. In the US, they could achieve their goals more economically by agitating for net neutrality. Elsewhere, it's may be cheaper and easier to pay their way into a privileged position. Like in Australia, where they have on average much lower data caps than we do here for wired broadband.

I'm not saying it's right or that I approve, it's just that you're foolish to trust any company to not use its dominant position to its advantage.

+Verizon Wireless/+Verizon FiOS behavior is equivalent to slave owners, segregationists and homophones of the past who claimed "It is likely that history will judge today's actions as misguided."
Just like those individuals, the history will show who's fighting the good fight.

Just like how the government regulated space travel in the 1920's. Or Verizon is lying as usual.

Google refuses to support a W3C Recommended Pointer Events standard because Apple has a stick up its own butt!

There are 2 competing ways to handle touch screen events.
Touch Events, which is patented by Apple and Pointer Events, a more flexible, more capable, superior and patent-free spec.

This is what a Google engineer has to say on the matter:
No argument that PE is more elegant. If we had a path to universal input that all supported, we would be great with that, but not all browsers will support PE. If we had Apple on board with PE, we’d still be on board too.

In 2014 it is OS X that was found to be riddled with the greatest number of security problems -- 147 in total, including 64 rated as high severity, and 67 as medium.
Also from the Apple stables, iOS did not fare all that much better: 127 vulnerabilities including 32 high and 72 with a medium rating.
The latest version of Windows -- Windows 8.1 -- was found to have 36 vulnerabilities, and its predecessors -- Windows 8 and 7 -- both had the same number.
An average of 19 vulnerabilities per day were reported in 2014, according to the data from the National Vulnerability Database (NVD). In this article, I look at some of the trends and key findings for 2014 based on the NVD’s database.

Well, yes, but I was commenting on the broader realities. Apple does need to take security a LOT more seriously. Their implementation of two-factor authentication is painful at best and late to the party, and they'd had a few huge gaffes due to their "not invented here" attitude and the unwillingness to properly embrace the open source community (outside of the Webkit team, that is). Microsoft, to its credit, has come a long way.

No. this app just gives you access to account status info(minutes/sms/billing cycle dates), some "tips" to improve battery life and usual marketing fluff.
Even if it had sms functionality before, it should not suddenly start asking for these permissions

This place sucks. 2 slices and a small cup of soda is $8.xx Pepperoni pizza tasted horrible. I think their napkins would taste better than this pizza. The drink was simply flat. Stay away. There are plenty of other better places around here. 1 out of 10.

The "Original 5 napkin burger" is of pretty decent size and interesting taste. However, at almost $15 it's not worth it.
