Only 100 Cybercrime Brains Worldwide, Says Europol Boss

Caedite Eos Re:No shit, sherlock (104 comments)

Don't forget that a lot of people there have decent CS and maths education, but less than optimal employment opportunities.

Add to that a dim view of government in general, and you have a bunch of young people who will be happy to spend whatever time it takes to achieve a certain goal. For the wast majority the nefariousness of the goal is a complete non issue.

The Hidden Cost of Your New Xfinity Router

Caedite Eos Re: Compared to what?!? (224 comments)

Would have to "fake" the Comcast SSL creds as well. They, Comcast, might be greedy and stuff, but I can't believe they would be so incompetent as not to use SSL.

I Want a Kindle Killer

Caedite Eos Re:Feature Creep V2R1 (321 comments)

Wait, what??? Your kindle does not have those apps? I guess you must mean "not when I first took it out of the box", because there were few Android apps that I couldn't load on my Fire.

Of course, if you mean a "Kindle paperwhite" ... you are right.

You Are What You're Tricked Into Eating

Caedite Eos Re:Ass time (499 comments)

If I made that food for $5/plate ... I may as well go to a restaurant, where I pay only a bit more and have the whole experience. For a simple dish like that if your cost is more than $2.50, you're doing something wrong. (West coast of the US retail prices. If you do your shopping at Costco/CashAndCarry/Winco/ethnic supermarket you should be able to get it well under $2/plate.)

The Verge: Google Is Working on a TV Box Of Its Own

Caedite Eos Re:Who cares about TV? (117 comments)

Absolutely. However, this could provide decent content for my projector. (Once you've experienced a properly set-up system with a 240" screen, you will never want to look at a TV.)

Amazon's Fire TV: Is It Worth Game Developers' Time?

Caedite Eos Re:Useless outside of the USA (88 comments)

Given the benefits of Plex - automatic download of info, sorting, presentation, etc, etc - and the fact that it runs beautifully on a power sipping pogoplug - running Debian, or Archlinux - there is no reason not to run Plex. There are many other benefits in having a very low power box running Linux.

Goodbye, Google Voice

Caedite Eos Re:Where is native VoIP support? (166 comments)

Some third party apps still work. Most will no longer do so after the middle of May.

My OBi202 is one, and so is GroovIP, and so on and so on. Bummer, for sure, but other free, or nearly so, alternatives do exist. So, in the end ... shrug.

Ars Technica Reviews Leaked Windows 8.1 Update

Caedite Eos Re:Nobody cares (194 comments)

I use Win8. All my stuff is on my HDDs. There is no reason you HAVE to use the cloud.

Yes, you have to actually open BOTH eyes and even get more than two neurons firing at the same time when setting things up, but it's not at all mandatory to use the cloud.

Dear Asus Router User: All Your Cloud Are Belong To Us

Caedite Eos Re:Open Source is better. (148 comments)

>but the majority of end-users just want shit that works. Exactly why I load Tomato on any router I set up. Of course this assumes the person I do it for bought a router I recommended, or I used one of mine. Tomato's "access restrictions" are dead easy to set up, and it's a simple, quite efficient, first line of defence to keep kids in line. I can show even clueless parents how to setup a "no internet after 21:30" rule, or block specific domains by keywords. Most of this is not easily achievable with OEM firmware.

Err ... I don't know where you looked, but I don't know of any Chromebook that can't be switched to a full Linux distro. Usualy more than one distro too.

Caedite Eos Re:The Power of a Midrange Desktop PC (211 comments)

And I'll buy it from you. So, go ahead build me a AIO that looks as good as that Dell, and is a "much better rig", and I'll pay you the $2100.

Calibre Version 1.0 Released After 7 Years of Development

Caedite Eos Lots of complains (193 comments)

Seems a lot of people are critical of Calibre. OK, it's not perfect. However, I also can't help but notice that no one is saying something like "It sucks because of "X" and "Y" and "insert application name here" is a much better choice. Or, better yet "It sucks because of "X" and "Y" and I am days away from releasing my app witch will take care of all the issues and ..." Fucking gimmegimme generation.

Ask Slashdot: Is an Online Identity Important When Searching For Technical Jobs?

Caedite Eos Re: As the song asks... (358 comments)

Depends on how much $$$ he is getting for those 80 hours, and why he does it. (Do that for two years so you can pay off your house ... Good. Do that because you have no life ... Not so good.)
