Industry-Wide Smartphone "Kill Switch" Closer To Reality

CTU Question (137 comments)

Any way to disable that feature? I am not to worried about phone theft myself mostly because I get the cheaper smart phones and not an iPhone or other really popular models. So how would I disable having my phone disabled remote because I just don't want that crap on my device.

Titanfall Dev Claims Xbox One Doesn't Need DX12 To Improve Performance

CTU The trolls shall say.... (117 comments)

Xbone just sucks compared to the PS4 so it is no wonder the system can't run the game well.

Well can't say I am upset with not having an xbone, if I really wanted this game, then I think PC would be better anyway with a decent video card at least :)

Please tell me that is sarcasm because if not then you really are a fool as marriage was around before religion (at least the ones around and practiced today) That and the government recognizes a marriage even if a non religious person preforms the ceremony

Typo Keyboard For iPhone Faces Sales Ban

CTU Re:Blackberry won... (205 comments)

Blackberry dose not or at least should not own the paten to a physical keyboard which is what this boils down to. Judges have struck down patens when a suit came up because it was given in error and somehow I feel that this should have been the case here.

Typo Keyboard For iPhone Faces Sales Ban

CTU Blackberry won... (205 comments)

...but we all lose. These bans do not in any way help consumers and should be laughed out of court. One thing to not steal tech from the people who invent it, but this is about ideas. Like banning people from making wheels because some comp owns the round shape patent

CTU Re:Probably a false alarm (146 comments)

I used to love nokia and any phone I had was a nokia phone, but when I wanted to move to smart phones I had to go elsewhere because Nokia had nothing sadly. If Nokia comes out with a decent android smart phone that I'd like then heck yeah I'd buy it

Web comic take-down? Maybe not.

CTU CTU writes  |  about 3 years ago

CTU (1844100) writes "Apparently today the web comic General protection fault (http://www.gpf-comics.com) was sized by the US government, but since today is April fools day it might not be true. While checking another site known to be taken down by Homeland security (torrent-finder.com) it can be noticed that the file name for the image give the month and year it was taken down, while the GPF take-down notice did not have that."

The goverment really wants to take down web comics now?

CTU CTU writes  |  about 3 years ago

The US government must have nothing better to do as the DoJ and ICE seized the domain of a web comic I read frequently. The comic if general protection fault (http://www.gpf-comics.com) As there was really no reason for this travesty I am left asking why?

or it could be a well done April fools joke...which is much more likly
