The liberals are upset about everything every company does, right? The conservatives feel that no one wants to listen to their lite voices, right? Today, members of congress asked questions of 4 of the largest tech companies on the planet and while valid points were made, it's clear that this entire hearing was meant to push their agendas and there was a severe lack of understanding of how the technology actually works. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Let's continue our discussion!
