Prosecutorial Discretion? What Prosecutorial Discretion?
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, June 27 2013 @ 03:32 PM EDT

Money that Bank of America spends asking its janitors to hose down the sidewalk is money it can't use to buy Bed Bath & Beyond gift cards for its employees who are top performers at defrauding mortgagees.

The same prosecutorial discretion that Ortiz/Holder exercised in the prosecution of Aaron Swartz.

alternate damages theory
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, June 27 2013 @ 03:40 PM EDT
I wonder if/when Google/Motorola/Samsung
will start to use Apple's/
Microsoft's/Nokia's damages theories
against them. If a H.264 patent is only
worth .1˘ per patent per device then that
means a typical smartphone patent would be
around that. Also if Apple series that
2.25% is to high for all of Motorola's
SEPs n on a phone, then that means Apple's
parents are similarly priced.

Reading Comprehension Higher in HK than US
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, June 27 2013 @ 05:24 PM EDT
Hong Kong’s justice secretary, Rimsky Yuen, says that according to Hong Kong immigration records, Joseph is the middle name in Mr. Snowden’s passport. Yet when the U.S. government submitted documents as part of a request to their Hong Kong counterparts to issue a provisional arrest warrant for the former security contractor, they specified one Edward James Snowden. In another, they simply referred to him as Edward J. Snowden, according to Mr. Yuen.

... attempts to process the U.S. request were further complicated by the fact that the U.S. didn’t specify any passport number for Mr. Snowden in its documents.

Or maybe Mr Snowden was an efficient spook, and had a couple of spare passports in synonymous identities.

Apple and Samsung should be 'scared' of Huawei
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, June 27 2013 @ 09:43 PM EDT
Chief executive Richard Yu stood on stage to announce the Huawei Ascend P6 – the world’s thinnest smartphone – and to issue a clear statement of intent. The company has the ambition, simply put, to make the best smartphone in the world and to sell it for less than Apple or Samsung.

Richard Stallman, windoz and wide open back doors.
Authored by: squib on Friday, June 28 2013 @ 08:45 AM EDT
TechBytes Episode 79: Richard Stallman Speaks About Back Doors
RMS: I don’t think the US government should use operating systems made in China for the same reason that most governments shouldn’t use operating systems made in the US and in fact we just got proof since Microsoft is now known to be telling the NSA about bugs in Windows before it fixes them.
So. Is this why they have been so slow in fixing them?
Then why-oh-why is the US Gov so keen on using windoz for their own in-house solutions?

'Patent Trolls' Face Rising Tide of Federal Scrutiny
Authored by: JamesK on Friday, June 28 2013 @ 12:37 PM EDT
Federal authorities are making an effort to rein in patent trolls, but the muddled, dysfunctional U.S. patent system makes significant change a long process with chances of success limited.

The following program contains immature subject matter.
Viewer discretion is advised.

Restricted web access to The Guardian is Armywide
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, June 28 2013 @ 07:47 PM EDT is routine for the Department of Defense to take preventative "network hygiene" measures to mitigate unauthorized disclosures of classified information.

Still considered classified, huh?
