Wi-Fi Problems Dog Apple-Samsung Trial

ArchieBunker Doesn't have to be Wifi (80 comments)

I have a pair of wireless gaming headphones that use the same 2.4Ghz band as Wifi but not the same protocol. Some people have interference problems and have to change the channel for their AP.

Most Expensive Aviation Search: $53 Million To Find Flight MH370

ArchieBunker Re:But Terrizm! (233 comments)

If that happened why would the pilot simply not have lowered the altitude? Above 13,000 feet oxygen is required. He could have easily dropped lower.

Illustrating the Socioeconomic Divide With iOS and Android

ArchieBunker LOL (161 comments)

You think Apple doesn't sell advertising metrics and other stats? I guarantee Apple does the exact same thing Google does but they don't tell you.

London Council Dumping Windows For Chromebooks To Save £400,000

ArchieBunker Real Work (193 comments)

What resource taxing applications do you think politicians use? Probably 90% of the time is documents and spreadsheets and the rest playing on the internet or solitaire.

The Connected Home's Battle of the Bulbs

ArchieBunker Too dim (176 comments)

Is 60 watts the new 100 watts or something? 60 is too dim. Is anyone making 100 watt equivalents or is bright light now a victim of the green movement?

Mt. Gox Questioned By Employees For At Least 2 Years Before Crisis

ArchieBunker Easy (134 comments)

It was pretty easy to figure out what was going on. It was a big Ponzi scheme. He took all the money and hid it somewhere. Now blame it going missing on evil hackers and live off the hidden stash.

Why Darmok Is a Good Star Trek: TNG Episode

ArchieBunker My problem (512 comments)

Is the translation software suddenly doesn't work for this alien race. They had a mini crystal civilization living on a rock inside the lab and the computer had no problems translating that never before heard language. Now all of a sudden nobody can figure these people out?

Used IT Equipment Can Be Worth a Fortune (Video)

ArchieBunker So many blade servers (79 comments)

So many good blade servers show up on ebay with pretty decent specs but they are useless without the rack to supply power and most lack a way for adding video. I'm talking about 3 year old blades with dual quad core Xeons and 8Gb of memory for $50. Even if you did rig one up the cooling fans would be deafening for desktop use.

AMD Develops New Linux Open-Source Driver Model

ArchieBunker Re:Intel (142 comments)

And a midrange i5 CPU will beat AMD's top of the line FX-8350, so what is your point? Both of those cost the same.

How Did Bill Nye Become the Science Guy?

ArchieBunker His debate (220 comments)

Most scientists told him not to debate the creationists as it only brings more attention to them. Well it really happened and now the people he debated received enough money and even MUNICIPAL BONDS to build a life sized Ark. Thanks Bill Nye.

Recent news events re: Bitcoin ...

ArchieBunker Silk Road (192 comments)

How did that thing even work? You pay someone then agree to meet somewhere to complete the transaction? Sounds like a great way to get robbed.

Recent news events re: Bitcoin ...

ArchieBunker You are correct (192 comments)

My understanding was that you used to be able to exchange them for USD. Most places stopped that and then only did the Euro. Now they won't do that anymore. Is there a place to exchange bitcoins for cash anymore? If the answer is no then it sounds very much like a Ponzi scheme. Someone keeps telling you that you have plenty of money but good luck trying to withdraw any.

Why San Francisco Is the New Renaissance Florence

ArchieBunker Haha (250 comments)

If you like everything being expensive and high crime then I guess San Francisco is the place for you. Don't forget about the awful weather and huge homeless population. Actually it sounds like a liberal paradise.

Apple Demands $40 Per Samsung Phone For 5 Software Patents

ArchieBunker If I were Samsung (406 comments)

I'd cease all production of the chips that Apple buys. See if you can find a new fab on short order.

Embarrassing Stories Shed Light On US Officials' Technological Ignorance

ArchieBunker Re:SCOTUS (299 comments)

The Supreme Court almost always means the United States Supreme Court. You could just as easily say the California Supreme Court or Ohio Supreme Court. See isn't that easy and way more clear?

Embarrassing Stories Shed Light On US Officials' Technological Ignorance

ArchieBunker SCOTUS (299 comments)

That acronym annoys me to no end. Are we in the days of Western Union telegraphs that charge per letter? Would it kill you to type out the Supreme Court?

Low-Protein Diet May Extend Lifespan

ArchieBunker Good, more for me (459 comments)

I'm just about full carnivore so whatever meat you guys are trying to avoid I'll take. The drop in demand should drop the prices as well. How old do you really want to live to? At some point it becomes hell.

Richard Stallman happy that Steve Jobs is gone

ArchieBunker ArchieBunker writes  |  more than 2 years ago

ArchieBunker (132337) writes "Richard Stallman is an eccentric, odd person who just went sour. In one fell, misguided swoop, he has compared the late Steve Jobs—an admittedly imperfect man, like us all—to corrupt mayors and other "evils" visited upon society:"
