The iPad Is 5 Years Old This Week, But You Still Don't Need One

BreakBad Re:I prefer a tablet for some things to a smart ph (298 comments)

The portability is nice in the working environment in many situations. Running around 'the factory floor' with a laptop is too clumsy, and fab phones are still to small to view complicated interfaces. I'd like to see kiosks in more coffee shops and fast food places utilize tablets. Also when an intruder breaks into my home I find slugging them with a tablet would be far more effective than hurling a phone at them. I've used it as a snow shovel as well, imagine shoveling snow with a laptop or phone!

BreakBad Re:Security is a process ... (46 comments)

They should have called it 'GreyPhone', maybe one day, after many updates, 'DarkGreyPhone'. But lets face it...BlackPhone may just be unobtainable.

BreakBad Re:call me skeptical (360 comments)

Apparently you can write whatever the fuck you want and post it on the interweb. It's actually, officially, called a warming siesta, because the Earth is Spanish.

Agreed. For those of use who can't figure out how to get the death crystal from the ogre warlock on level 5....an extra 30 minutes every commute would be invaluable.

2015 Could Be the Year of the Hospital Hack

BreakBad Re:Oh, I wouldn't worry about it. (130 comments)

(M)illions? Maybe two keys to the left.

I wonder if it would be cheaper to eliminate EHR's and just let patients make up their medical history every visit.

Feds Plan For 35 Agencies To Collect, Share, Use Health Records of Americans

BreakBad Re:Not to mention (209 comments)

They screwed up by not arbitrarily inserting the word freedom in the title, e.g. "Federal Heath IT FREEDOM Strategic Plan". Or replacing 'strategic', sounds to much like a battle plan.

..to find the lowest paid programmers and hire them to program in the highest paid language at a discount. I only say this because PHP is not on the list.

Geothermal Heat Contributing To West Antarctic Ice Sheet Melting

BreakBad Re:And who will be pushing the accelerator (387 comments)

Indeed. But nobody ever wants to talk about population. If simply 'curbing' CO2 is so hard, wouldn't it be easier to just have one big ass war? Sure it would be messy at first, but the long term benefits of nixing a few trillion people would be worth considering.
