If you had invested $5,000 in MarketGuide, Inc. last Monday, you would have wound up with $33,200 on Thursday morning.
Suddenly I feel so incredibly powerless. Not because of the last sentence (as taken from DisInfotainment Today). No, I just feel as though I have no chance to really succeed in anything important. This semester's already going by so quick.. I just want to hit 'pause' and take a breather. Sure, I'm a little overworked, but who isn't? I just want more time, not less work. Things are OK, but not great. Moments of happiness arrive, and just as quickly vanish. Surprises abound, but are crushed into bland nothings a second later. Things come up, and I'm not available. I'm completely unoccupied, and things are normal as usual. Everyone is so nice, but no one cares...
The computer scientist has launched a site, called Fritz's Hit List, that points out devices that could be forced to carry anti-copying technology if Sen. Fritz Hollings', D-S.C., Consumer Broadband and Digital Television Promotion Act (CBDTPA) passes. The bill, which is designed to thwart piracy, would restrict digital products that don't carry government-approved security technology.
So far, Fritz's Hit List features a catalog of unlikely devices Felten said would be regulated under the law. They include common objects such as baby monitors and automobile navigation systems as well as seemingly innocuous toys such as the Shop With Me Barbie toy cash register, the Sony Aibo robot dog and Big Mouth Billy Bass.
This is why morons should not be allowed to write laws about technology. Leo 4 Congress!
I'll be visiting my cos cyberdrum's (of MNIJ fame) college on Saturday. That should be a ton o' fun. I think they actually have a football team that's playing.
