    Today is not the 25th anniversary of the Internet– it’s the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web. (I was on the Internet before the web.)

    I saw on the Weather Channel bottom line scroll that a tropical storm hit Vanuatu, killing one. Haven’t found a story to link to about it yet, though.

    I link, you deride. 😉
    You are correct, though; I myself remember a day when it was all e-mail and gopher and the images were all binary files.

    There are some claims that some mesenging services are still showing the smartphones of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 as active.

    Sorry for my tone, it’s just that confusing a piece of the Internet for the whole thing has been a long-standing pet peeve with me. (Along with assumptions that everyone runs Windows, or is on Facebook, or insert trendy thing here.)

    The DOJ is opening a criminal investigation of an ignition switch problem related to early 2000 GM cars.

    I have to ask .. can the 2001-2007 GM be subject to criminal prosecution ?

    According to the terms of TARP, the result of the reorganization is not subject to review by the courts. The liabilities of 2001-2007 GM have be quantified by the TARP settlement (however lousy it is).

    DOJ has no say at this point regarding a new civil settlement. That can only be done by Barack Obama.

    But does that also apply to criminal activity that might generate a “fine” or legal fees ?

    Given the President’s position, does DOJ have a conflict-of-interest ?

    Did the government know they might sue GM (the NTSB, a government agency, knew about the problem in 2007) when they sold securities of the new GM to on the stock market ? This might be fraud .. like what DOJ is prosecuting now with Wall Street firms who sold tainted securities to clients, but this would be fraud by the government.
