Beriaru Re:It's all relative (275 comments)

Yep, With 20 I wanted to have 40 so I didn't have to take shit from adults.

With 40, I really would like to take shit from adults if I can have 20 again.

How Apple Watch Is Really a Regression In Watchmaking

Beriaru Re:How big a fuss is it, really? (415 comments)

I have a mechanical, automatic, waterproof watch.

Other than adjust the time once a week, I don't have to take it off. I like my wearables to be old school.

UK Police Won't Comment On The Tracking of People's Phone Calls

Beriaru Re:Well (52 comments)

They dont need any esoteric piece of technology. Just a call to the carrier, and there you are: all your sms and conversations. And thats for an anonymous citizen. If they have you in a list, you provably have a man in the middle for all your internet traffic.

America's Secret Underground Ice Fortresses

Beriaru Re:Wow, this generation sucks. (134 comments)

It also says that after getting it running, the necessity of better shielding was discovered. Oh, and do not forget that the reactor discharged its radioactive liquid waste (47,078 gallons in total for 33 months) directly into the icecap. One has to wonder why they discontinued that type of portable reactors *rollseyes*.

A little weak for my taste. I've bought the first android bundle, but for this one I'll wait to see the later bonus.

A Quarter of the EU Has Never Used the Web

Beriaru Not west, EAST! (392 comments)

As a Spaniard (South and West of EU) I have to say the summary is wrong. The fine article says the South and EAST!
Anyway, Spain is a country with large rural areas, but the broadband is nearly ubiquitous.

Carrier IQ Software May Be in iOS, Too

Beriaru Re:Android (234 comments)

Not only "pure" Android. I have a LG Optimus 3D (the equivalent of the Thrill 4G) and it doesn't have any traces of Carrier IQ. As far as I know, it's only confirmed in HTC and Samsung devices.

Why Do Companies Backup So Infrequently?

Beriaru Re:Computers are too reliable (403 comments)

Because for them, as any other industry with a few decades of history, TI is nothing but a replacement of paper, ink and mail.

Drawings, memos, invoices... all of these were paper 30 years ago, and they got stacked in a warehouse. A fire was a real threat, but what can you do? The original was the original, and a copy of an invoice doesn't have the same valor than the true original (you can see the culture of the original in all its glory in courts, where I've seen a judge ask for the true original email sent to prove the copy wasn't tampered).

Nowadays people still work the same ways. Tradition has a lot of inertia, and doing backups is not part of that tradition.

Spanish Congress Rejects Internet Censorship Law

Beriaru Re:I smiled for a moment... (229 comments)

Yep, they worry about soccer.

You're not spanish, or if you are, you're in denial. Spain had our laws and constitution stomped a week ago and nobody gave a damn. Had our worker rights ripped apart and nobody gave a damn. Our politics are a wealthy elite and the crisis don't touch them, but nobody-give-a-damn!

BUT, if you touch a local soccer team or closes music or video downloads, hell breaks loose.

This is Spain, and that's the reality in Spain.

Spanish Congress Rejects Internet Censorship Law

Beriaru Re:I smiled for a moment... (229 comments)

The citizen awareness was high because the sharing webpages closed showing the notice of the intent of the government of passing the law as a 'petty topic' so it could approve it without public discussion.

That raised protest, a DDoS attack to the web pages of ALL politic groups, a flood of emails and calls to the politics, and so on. That incidents produced some notices in national media that raised more the awareness of the public opinion.

At last, the politic groups was intimidated. The situation in Spain is critical, with a 20% of unemployment and a brutal credit crunch. So a high unpopular law as that could 'spark' some unrest.
