Leave Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson Alone!

AdamJS Re:It's the hypocricy (319 comments)

I guarantee that RIM, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and Yahoo! all have engineers worth far more than any of their (often detrimental) CEOs.

Aussie Parliamentary Inquiry Into Software Pricing Announced

AdamJS Re:Why buy Adobe products anyway? (259 comments)

What FOSS alternative for Flash/Flex is there? One that produces compatible formats (swf,flavor,etc.) of course.

Same question for Photoshop, as Gimp is rather kinda shitty. Most image editing software I've tried on Linux seems to get some HCI heuristic horrendously wrong.

Indian Man Charged With Blasphemy For Exposing "Miracle"

AdamJS Re:But... (796 comments)

Couldn't he claim that he was actually defending the sanctity and integrity of the religion from charlitans and superstition?

Qt 5 Alpha Released

AdamJS Well (117 comments)

On the desktop, it is an extremely fluid, extensible, quick yet powerful way of developing visual applications in a language that many love (C++).
I would quite like it if I could build applications for the core mobile devices under that exact same setup.

But that isn't what they are aiming for, and you're right, their sights seem set on irrelevancy and failure.

Qt 5 Alpha Released

AdamJS No. (117 comments)

When your core users are using your software SPECIFICALLY for desktop C++ development, bastardizing the software in some schizophrenic, hopeless pursuit of an area few of them want is quite the wrong way to do it.

RIM Firing (Nearly) Everybody

The point was that Apple changed the market. Whether deservedly or due to pomp and marketing us up to interpretation.

Conservatives' Trust In Science Has Fallen Dramatically Since Mid-1970s

AdamJS Not really (1128 comments)

This is more of an argument about definitions.
What the US calls a socialiberalistacommunofascist party (the Democrats) is what the rest if the world would call a 'conservative' party.

Would you trust some stupid egghead who wants to take away your gas guzzler and teach blasphemy in your child's school?

New SimCity To Require Constant Internet Connection

AdamJS Re:Well if you stopped pirating your software. (418 comments)

If you don't like Comcast and Verizon and AT&T and (insert monopolistic service provider here) violating net neutrality and grossly under-delivering on their promises, then just don't buy from them!

New SimCity To Require Constant Internet Connection

AdamJS Horseshit deflection. (418 comments)

You could say the same things about usurping, gouging and destroying the interests and consumerism of ANY technology or ANY hobby or ANY interest. "just don't buy it" and "they're a business so it's OK" and all variants of these statements are bullshit non-responses and nothing more than flakey attempts to avoid valid criticisms and contempt of abhorrent business practices.

They use actual screencaps and promotional materials ripped from the movies and associated trademarked/copyrighted works, without permission.

Free Apps Eat Your Smartphone Battery

AdamJS Re:Misleading article is misleading (214 comments)

For most users, the vast majority of free apps are ad-laden and (for many therein) functionally crippled versions of better, paid applications.

Iran Deleted From the World's Banking Computers

AdamJS If I was Iran (667 comments)

I would have a system in place to render their oil useless at a moment's notice. Seems a lot more attainable than a nuke.

AdamJS Re:Cheaper strategy (247 comments)

Because Corporations generally dislike consumers, and Sony is at the top of the pile of disdain.
Oh, they love the consumers' wallets, of course.

Sony's Plan To Tighten Security and Fight Hacktivism

AdamJS Re:Cheaper strategy (247 comments)

Well, it doesn't help that after some form of openness (ie otherOS, standardized inputs on the PS3), they immediately clamp shut (proprietary memory designed only for maximizing profit and for screwing gamers over) and that they always follow said process.
