Re: Some Guy Bought the Data of 1.1 Million Facebook Users

said by Mele20:

Where does that writer live? You can't buy even a SIX INCH Subway for $5 much less a foot long one!



Doesn't matter where the writer lives Subway $5 footlongs can be bought at any if not all Subway.

Any way to stay on topic, good thing Facebook is blocked on my network at home and no one in my house hold has a Facebook account.

I have enemies? Good. That means I've stood up for something, sometime in my life.

You should tell that to the Subway closest to me.
$6 footlongs (Black Forest Ham, Cold Cut Trio, Meatball Marinara & 2 others) are currently being offered as a promotion.
You can get almost all of the 6" for $5 or less.
Blocking access to facebook is like covering your eyes, n'est ce pas? It's still there, the only difference is you can't see what's there.
I thought my own true PII was safe from being posted on facebook until I found out a niece had uploaded a few pics of me to her faceboook page along with the usual descriptions "Ths is my Uncle Snowy who lives in..."

That's the hole point i don't want to see what's going on with or at facebook. My life wont change one bit not knowing what's going on with facebook and i like it that way. So your point is mute to me.

Along those lines, I don't have a Facebook account but my wife does. Unfortunately, she thinks nothing of posting personal information about her or me or anyone else there, because she thinks only her friends can see it - which is of course not at all true (we've had a few "discussions" about this). And potential real-world security issues abound here. For example, on my 50th birthday she announced "Happy Birthday!" to me on Facebook - not that I would ever see it, but all her friends did. And while I don't care if anyone knows how old I am, I do care who knows my actual date of birth (which is trivially deduced from her Facebook entry), because that is most certainly a potential security (identity theft) concern. So I made her delete that entry.

If you read the fine print on special deals on almost anything, you'll often see that Alaska (AK) and Hawaii (HI) are excluded or at least handled differently. The reason being that shipping costs to (and within) those two states are not trivial, particularly for perishable food items, and that has to be taken into consideration. A certain lack of competition in those markets may come into play here, too.

Why post a generic photo that has nothing to do with INDIVIDUAL Subways? Subway is franchised so it totally depends on the franchisee what is served and what the price is going to be. Plus, Hawaii and Alaska are excluded from Mainland prices...assuming the franchisee wishes it that way.

Same with Starbucks. We are still International Starbucks not USA and International prices and menus apply.

I nominate the "subway price discussion" for one of the more bizarre off-topic digressions of the year.

When I was a kid the saying was "What's that got to do with the price of eggs in China?". It now appears to be "What's that got to do with the price of Subway in Hawaii?" But then I haven't been to Subway in about 2 years.
