Valve's Newell Thinks PS3 Needs To Be "Open Like a Mac"

Akira Kogami Re:Gabe blowing smoke again (348 comments)

Hell, PS3 is more open than 360. At least you can use your own damn hard drive in it. And you used to be able to run Linux on it.

Nutritionist Claims His Pre-Packaged Meals Are Dangerous

Akira Kogami Re:HIV does not cause AIDS? (35 comments)

Homeopathy has been proven countless, countless times to do absolutely jack-fucking-shit. About five seconds of wiki-ing found this. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1874503/?tool=pmcentrez There is nothing ignorant or arrogant about disregarding some ancient bullshit when every single piece of legitimate scientific evidence shows that it's just ancient bullshit.

Ubisoft Says No More Game Manuals

Akira Kogami Re:I like them (400 comments)

The one thing I like about manuals is the satisfying heft they add to the package. Now with the extra-light cases and no manuals it'll feel a little more like I'm being ripped off spending $60 on a plastic disc.

BC Prof Suggests Young Children Need Less Formal Math, Not More

Akira Kogami Re:As someone who was better than average... (427 comments)

This is an excellent essay. It made me realize why I hated "math" in school. "Here's a new type of problem, here's the algorithm to do it, now do it fifty times" is not teaching.

MP3 Player Tax Proposed In Canada

Akira Kogami Re:Fuck Off, Eh (281 comments)

You admitted that you were too flabbergasted to put together a coherent sentence. It's not my reading comprehension.

US Lawmakers Eyeing National ID Card

Akira Kogami Re:And what's the problem here? (826 comments)

Agreed. Why don't we just eliminate medical science all together? We're all gonna die anyway, who cares if it's at 20 or 85? We're all fucked, right?

MP3 Player Tax Proposed In Canada

Akira Kogami Re:Fuck Off, Eh (281 comments)

You don't think being an executive at a huge corporation is work? Fun fact: If they did nothing, no one would want to get signed.

MP3 Player Tax Proposed In Canada

Akira Kogami Re:Useful (281 comments)

I hate major labels as much as the next guy, but to be fair supporting the corporation that the artists rely on for profit kinda is helping the artists.

UK Bill Would Outlaw Open Wi-Fi

Akira Kogami Re:All-fronts attack (250 comments)

Agreed. The whole idea of "you infringe on the copyright of the copyright owners who are lobbying the fuck out of us and we can just take away your internet" is just freaky.

Sony Joins the Offensive Against Pre-Owned Games

Akira Kogami Dick move. (461 comments)

These aren't "similar plans." There's a huge difference between perks for new buyers and punishment for used buyers.

Apple Bans Jailbreakers From the App Store

Akira Kogami derp (507 comments)

I'm seeing the logic here as this: You didn't pay for our software, so we're not going to let you pay for our software. How exactly does that make sense?

Is Plagiarism In Literature Just Sampling?

Akira Kogami Re:No. (449 comments)

I'd hardly call Girl Talk a band. More like a spacebar jockey.

Is Plagiarism In Literature Just Sampling?

Akira Kogami Re:Whee (449 comments)

Most musicians who use samples in their releases get permission from the copyright owner of the sample. I don't even slightly doubt that someone on a major label like Kid Rock had every sample he used cleared by the copyright holder. If you get sued for sampling, it's because you didn't get it cleared.

Akira Kogami Err. (569 comments)

"CS student continues to take class notes with pen and paper while her fellow students" "CS student ... her ..." I call bullshit.

"Perpetual Motion DeLorean" Scammers Face $26M Judgment

Akira Kogami Re:Free energy community? (243 comments)

Part of me would prefer a government controlled by rich, intelligent businessmen over one controlled by hordes of clueless goobers, but the other part of me says that's wrong. I'm not sure which to believe.
