“Americans should not be subject to fines and criminal liability for merely unlocking devices and media they legally purchased,” said Rep. Lofgren in a press release. “If consumers are not violating copyright or some other law, there’s little reason to hold back the benefits of unlocking so people can continue using their devices.” Lofgren’s bill...

Supreme Court On Gay Marriage: 'Sure, Who Cares' |... →
In an alternate, rational universe: Ten minutes into oral arguments over whether or not homosexuals should be allowed to marry one another, a visibly confounded Supreme Court stopped legal proceedings Tuesday and ruled that gay marriage was “perfectly fine” and that the court could “care less who marries whom.” “Yeah, of course gay men and women can get married. Who gives a shit?” said...
Gay Pride Center Opens Across From Westboro --... →
Six months ago, 31-year-old “roving do-gooder” Aaron Jackson bought a house that was for sale directly across from the Westboro Baptist Church, the very worst place on the planet aside from Guy’s American Kitchen. Jackson and his group, Planting Peace, plan to turn the home — which they’ve dubbed Equality House — into a base for gay-advocacy efforts. And just to piss...

jmdickinson: We fit the metric for “most happy” so well that they decided to use a Vimeo picture for the article. Ooof, I’m not exactly looking my best there. Glad my back is turned.
Let’s Not Tie Any President’s Hands | TightWind →
The president’s top priority should not be to “avoid terrorist killings on their watch.” If that’s the case, why have impediments like due process and “unreasonable” search and seizure? Requiring police to have probable cause and a warrant to conduct searches absolutely impinges on the president’s ability to fulfill his top priority, avoiding terrorist killings—so why have them? It’s...
I think we finally reached the finish line with...
Joe: horse meat is definitely trending
Jason: I'm not sure how different eating a cow is compared to eating horse.
Jason: Sorry for beating a dead horse.
Cait: oh no...
Tommy: You're really riding this one out
Cait: here it comes
Joe: we have to whip you back into shape
Jason: I'll rein it in
Tommy: What's wrong Cait? Why the long face?
Cait: you guys really need to stop horsing around
Jason: It's fine as long as we're having fun. That's the mane thing
Joe: Alright, saddle down everyone
Jason: We kind of started to stirrup some trouble, didn't we?
Tommy: It's definitely something that would disturb our neeeiiighbors
Jason: Figures you'd trot that one out, Tommy
Jason: We had a good run, everybody. I think we've acted foal enough. Give yourselves a paddock the back
Cait: that last one was horse shit
Jason: I'm not mare-ied to it
Jason: Let's get back on tack
Jason: Hay, I sure am glad this latest build is more… stable
Joe: i think it's time to put this pun out to stud
Jason: Tired of the dog and pony show, Joe?
Joe: the rate and quality has slowed to a gallop, is all
Jason: It happens when we're all jockeying for punsition like that
Jason: But, sometimes you just have to get down and derby
Joe: It would be-hoof you to end this soon
Joe: I think we've harnessed the full potential of the joke
Jason: Yeah. I'm whinny anyway.
Jason: Some of these puns were trough-ful
Joe: Ok ok ok, we've gotten off track enough for one day

Going the distance: driving the Tesla Model S in... →
Pulling into scenic Santa Barbara for lunch, I noticed a few touches that will freak out drivers experiencing the Model S for the first time. For instance, there’s quite literally no ignition, nor one of those start-stop buttons that have become popular in recent years. There’s no power switch at all. As long as the key fob — shaped like a Model S — is on you, you just get in and start driving....
Notifications and glanceable information on your wrist is here to stay....– Me, on Facebook, saying things about the Pebble. I like it, but it’s got a waaaays to go. This feels like the Pocket PC of wearable computing (as opposed to the iPhone). Interesting and cool, but too bulky and limited for the mass market. However, when it does work, you really feel like...

x-surface: At 1:41am GMT today I sent out an email to a bunch of gaming sites claiming to be a Microsoft employee working on the new Xbox. I made up every single word of it along with a couple of specs copied from other rumours that have been appearing on the Internet. […] Pocket-Lint.com were the first to run with the news, almost exactly one hour after saying “we have to...
Jason: I approve of the use of "meltdown" in the headline.
Joe: that's quite the cheesy pun
Jason: I thought it was pretty gouda.
Joe: I prefer a sharp wit
Joe: possibly even extra sharp
Cait: you guys going to keep waxing on about this headline?
Jason: No whey, Cait
Joe: we're gonna milk this one for all it's worth
Cait: well...it really bleu my mind
Tommy: You have to admit this is pretty legendairy.
Jason: I could churn them out all day
Jason: As long as you guys don't get feta up
Cait: might as well enjoy it. if you can't edam, join em
Jason: That one was kind of a curd, Cait.
Cait: you ricotta give me some respect, jason.
Joe: I don't gotta do jack
Tommy: Easy briezy
Joe: I think this pun has been thoroughly shredded. Time to moooove on
Jason: Or we'll surely all end up provolone.
Cait: its time to move on when we decide it is, joe! we're nacho puppets
Jason: Well, I don't know about you guys but I've got a ton to fondue today
Cait: I'm sure you can manage to wedge it into your schedule
Joe: I barely recognize you guys, you've turned into pun-destroying munsters
Jason: Maybe if I break everything down into singles
Cait: yeah. dont bite off more than you can chew
Joe: Que…so, back to work?
Cait: sorry boss. i hope youre not cheesed.
Jason: I'll make up the time, Joe. I'm a whiz
Tommy: It's nacho choice to make
Joe: I just need a brick from the puns
Cait: we are spreading it a little thin
Tommy: Definitely crumbling
Jason: Tommy. You can't use the same pun Cait used
Joe: gouda come up with your own
Obama's overlooked war and lethal Presidency →
Dangerous dangerous precedent here. If George W. Bush were doing this sort of thing, we’d be marching in the streets about it. Why does Obama get a free pass? (And on Bradley Manning? And on Guantanamo?) Anyone in the press want to ask the President about the legality & moral stickiness of drone strikes at his next press conference? Yep. The even BIGGER problem is, everyone in...
