Consortium Roadmap Shows 100TB Hard Drives Possible By 2025

Brad1138 It wont be that long. (195 comments)

I remember 1GB drive going for ~$100 in 1998. 1TB drives have been under $100 for a few years. We will probably see 1PB drives by 2025

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

Brad1138 Re:Pathetic (1087 comments)

Continued training and education is always good, I don't disagree with your point. I don't know how Darren Wilson could have defended himself with "higher standards". If you are in fear for your life, who are we to judge how he defends himself (not that there was anything wrong with the way he did).

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

Brad1138 Re:Pathetic (1087 comments)

The evidence is clear, the cop did his job. But so many have already made their minds up, they won't listen to it. I am actually very surprised that there are so many on Slashdot that can't see that.

Officer Not Charged In Michael Brown Shooting

Brad1138 Re:Pathetic (1087 comments)

YOU are the idiot making this about race. Anyone that robs a store and then attacks an officer would be shot in the same manner.

The grand jury found no reason to even send this to trial. Cut and dry case of justifiable self defense. END of story.

Verizon Working On a La Carte Internet TV Service

Brad1138 Ala-cart, not all it is cracked up to be. (108 comments)

The problem with "Ala-cart" is, you can't get just the 1 channel you want, you get the "Viacom" channels or the "Turner" channels or the "Fox" channels etc. If you want just news channels you have to buy 3 or more channel "groups" to get Fox News, CNN, MSNBC (or whatever). There wont be a time soon when you can just order the specific channel you want, the parent companies wants all their programming sold together.

AT&T Says 10Mbps Is Too Fast For "Broadband," 4Mbps Is Enough

Brad1138 Re:Seriously? (533 comments)

I am sorry, but I would have to agree. Having more than 4 Mbps is nice, but not necessary for basic web browsing, youtube etc.

Windows 8.1 Finally Passes Windows 8 In Market Share

Brad1138 Re:The only reason (187 comments)

I like a few things about 8.1. I like 7 a lot, but I like the quicker boot in 8.1, I like some of the apps, the weather one in particular. From what I have read, 8/8.1 is better underneath and generally faster than 7.

Windows 8.1 Finally Passes Windows 8 In Market Share

Brad1138 The only reason (187 comments)

I started using 8.1 was I could install "Classic Shell" and make it more or less just like 7.

Retired SCOTUS Justice Wants To 'Fix' the Second Amendment

Brad1138 Re:Slippery Slope (1633 comments)

"What knives/cutters were used in the most recent stabbings"

What is so often is missed in statements like that are the results. The resent schools stabbing injured ~20, the most recent school shooting killed 20+. HUGE difference.

Unity/Gnome 3/Windows 8/iOS Do we really all hate

Brad1138 Brad1138 writes  |  about 3 years ago

Brad1138 writes "You see complaints about all the "next gen" GUI's all over the place, but do we really all hate them? I don't like them, I tried very hard to like Unity in Ubuntu 11.04/11.10 before giving up and switching to Mint (I am very happy there currently). But is it the vocal minority doing all the complaining or is it the majority? Will these all crash and burn?"

Wikileaks is under cyber attack....

Brad1138 Brad1138 writes  |  about 4 years ago

Brad1138 writes "The whistleblower website WikiLeaks is under cyber attack, but even if it goes down, a new cache of leaked U.S. diplomatic cables will still be published Sunday night, it said via Twitter Sunday.The announcements come shortly after the United States warned WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange that publishing the papers would be illegal and endanger peoples' lives. Would the US Government openly sponsor an attack like this? Wikileaks is down as of this submission."

Proof of Live on Mars?

Brad1138 Brad1138 writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Brad1138 writes "From an article on BBC news.com, a magnified version of the picture, posted on the internet, appears to some to show what resembles a human form among a crop of rocks. This looks a lot more compelling than the Mars face. Could this be proof of extra terrestrial life?"
