[C-SPAN] Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Introduce Articles of Impeachment against Justices Thomas and Alito (13:37)
  • I think you're misunderstanding the comment you replied to.

    The "do nothing congress" was a specific Congress back in the 40s — not a Congress that literally does nothing.

    The do nothing Congress passed 906 bills. I believe the current congress has passed something like 68 three-quarters of the way through. That's the comparison the commenter was making.

  • Apple must open iPadOS to sideloading within 6 months, EU says
  • If a third party app store provides a tool or service to improve their app store, should apple expect to be able to use that for free? Negating any benefit that third party would get for developing such an improvement

    Sideloaded apps aren't asking for benefits from being in Apple's app store. They're asking to be allowed to exist on Apple's platform without being fined for it.

    Apple has used other platform API and tooling at no added cost the same way everyone everyone else does. iTunes and Safari used to run on Windows. Apple provides AppleTV+ apps for several platforms. And there's a number of apps they make for Android.

    Apple already charges developers for access to their APIs and tooling. What Apple is doing with the per-install cost is trying to charge developers for access to their audience — which is not what the EU intended.

  • Can an online library of classic video games ever be legal?
  • Abandonware amounts to "the rights holder no longer exists or no one knows who owns the rights anymore" or, more clearly "no one is enforcing their rights to this game anymore for whatever reason, so it's de facto public domain."

  • Google fires more workers after CEO says workplace isn’t for politics
  • When my co-workers get terminated for political criticism? Yeah, I would. Lots of tech workers would and do — remember the Blizzard walkout several years ago? At the very least, this is the type of thing that spurs white collars to form unions.

  • Google fires more workers after CEO says workplace isn’t for politics
  • I'm honestly somewhat surprised that these firings haven't triggered a mass walkout or something at Google offices yet. They're being very cavalier with employees they spend so much effort (at least historically) on keeping in the office to work "free" hours.
