Adobe Stops Flash Player Support For Android

Aeiri Re:What instead of Flash? (332 comments)

The guys behind Newgrounds are the developers of GBA, GameCube, PS2, Xbox, Xbox 360 and PS3 games. Castle Crashers alone was massive. Just because you haven't heard of them doesn't mean they aren't notable.

You successfully read 2 of the 3 sentences in his post. If you read the third, you'll see that he has no opinions stated in this post whatsoever.

Real Life Super Hero Arrested

Aeiri Re:Article is Wrong - Guy Has Become a Pest (590 comments)

Uhhh.... okay. Friends claim there is no fight, fine. They still hit a random guy with their car: http://vimeo.com/30307440 I'm no fan of vigilantism and I think he was being a self-righteous ass in this instance, but there WAS crime being committed, people were getting attacked.

RMS: 'Is Android Really Free Software?'

Aeiri Re:Marketing (433 comments)

SInce we are talking about Google vs. Apple, here, I think bringing Amazon into the picture is a bit off topic.

RMS: 'Is Android Really Free Software?'

Aeiri Re:Curious focus (433 comments)

I seriously doubt Google's only profits from Android are just ads. They probably charge phone manufacturers licensing fees for the software. They probably take a percentage of the profits for downloaded sales on the marketplace. Not saying that these account for all the money, but you are only looking at one of their incomes.

They could be still losing money, though. I don't think they are since they are footing the bill for a lot of phones, but who knows. I certainly don't care as long as they aren't going to drop out of the market anytime soon, which I highly doubt.

Senators Slam Firm For Online Background Check

Aeiri Re:Shocking. (196 comments)

Tech savvy Indian people, at least those around me, already have 2 facebook accounts. 1 for real use, with a fake name like you say, and one for family. Apparently families in India are crazy about facebook stuff.

GPGPU Bitcoin Mining Trojan

Aeiri Re:Just to get the facts straight (258 comments)

In my view, BitCoins should NEVER be adopted mainstream. It's fine if they exist, but we should not build societies on it. The problem is that it uses computationally complex equations as well as cryptography. Over time, hardware gets better, software gets better, and it's really easy to completely destroy an economy based on it.

Counterfeiting in fiat currency can at least be phased out for newer bills. You can't just change the algorithms of BitCoin, unless you want to make a BitCoin v2...

Drug Companies Lose Special Protection On Facebook

Aeiri Re:Seroquel not Antidepressant (181 comments)

That's exactly my point. It may have effects that can tertiarily treat depression and bipolar, there are better medications out there such as antidepressants themselves or mood stabilizers for bipolar. These should be used first, and antipsychotics used second... but thats not how they are prescribed. I was also talking about the specific classification of the drug. The summary makes it sound like it's a SSRI.

Drug Companies Lose Special Protection On Facebook

Aeiri Seroquel not Antidepressant (181 comments)

Seroquel is NOT an antidepressant, and doctors need to stop prescribing it as if it were. Seroquel is an atypical antipsychotic, used to treat psychosis.

All of the current atypical antipsychotics have the WORST side effects imaginable (more so than antidepressants), so they need to start using them as they are designed to be used. For instance, I was on Seroquel for 1 month, and the person that took me off of it was the ER doctor that I was taken to after collapsing for no real reason.

These doctors need to stop messing around with serious medication. In my case, it was necessary, in most other cases, FFS use something else.
