Apple Sucks

Why is it this guy can't fix broken phones, the people who buy them from Apple may have an agreement with the company but this guy doesn't.

John Deere was screwing with hacker farmers a while back. Corporations are citizens now.

Funny you should mention that, I pulled this out of an August Car & Driver magazine at the doctors on Thursday.
Picture you're in the middle of a harvest, trucks are lined up to haul your crop to the railroad who has a whole train waiting on the siding with locomotive idling. A storm front is threatening to cover the crop with sleet. Radar is picking up a hoard of locusts three miles wide bearing down on your field. John Deere says we'll send a tech out next thursday. Oh Deere.

Might have been last August's issue. Maybe. ETA: Scratch that, just saw the date on yer page. I read a very similar story in some car mag a good while back.

JD wants to make like Microsoft. For $250,000 you only own a license to use their combine.

I think you should double that $250,000.

No taxation without representation. Those corporate executives will soon be marching in the streets (only because corporations don't have any legs to stand on).

I just read a article recently where a corporation was charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of a student at a school owned by the corp.

This is comparable to McDonald's suing that lady in Scotland for having a coffee shop named after her family (McDonald).

Didn't Allis Chalmers start putting card swipes on their tractors so you had to have aftermarket maintenance done on them? Ingersoll Rand air compressors do that now, too.

Seems to be a trend, one I don't like. One that disturbs me is upgrading the software in a car remotely while you drive. They've already discovered in some Dodge Ram and Jeep products with a certain optional entertainment system can be hacked over the air to disable the brakes or engine.

OnStar can also be OffStar if law enforcement (or a reasonable facsimile) convinces it it needs to stop a vehicle.
Supposedly for stolen car or otherwise fugitive action you can find yourself coasting to a stop.

Yeah, I killed that the first day. When I'm running from the cops I want the news choppers to get spectacular footage of the crash and burn.
