Great! Now we can download porn at speeds up to 1gbps wireless before the battery runs flat after 1 hour :) Seriously, what fool *needs* link speeds up to 1gbps for a mobile device ?

Linux 3.9 Released

Cherubim1 Torvalds has tunnel vision (112 comments)

Torvalds is an arrogant control freak who thinks he knows best when it comes to kernel design. The reality is very far from this as Linus has ignored continual flaws in his beloved kernel for years. He may be pope of the Linux kernel but he has no influence over distro developers and their unstructured implementation of GNU userland & third party apps. GNU/Linux has become a chaotic mess because of its fragmentation and lack of proper integration.

RMS Urges W3C To Reject On Principle DRM In HTML5

Cherubim1 Makes sense (320 comments)

Stallman makes more sense than people give him credit for. Web standards should be open and not subjected to any form of proprietary control just to appease content providers.

BlackBerry CEO: Tablet Market Is Dying

Cherubim1 Ignorant educator (564 comments)

And how are these tablets actually helping students to learn ? Such gadgets are frivolous and are doing more to dumb students down and make them lazy. Whatever happened to real schooling where teachers actually taught and students actually thought and did real research ? You and your ilk are one of the primary reasons why students are getting more ignorant since you see technology as some kind of "holy grail" for education when the reality is very different. Good luck with indoctrinating students into the halls of mediocrity. You obviously got high honors in such a role.

BlackBerry CEO: Tablet Market Is Dying

Cherubim1 Re:Hahahaha! (564 comments)

Netflix ?? Like uhh gee that's *such* a crucial app, NOT! Only an imbecile would use Netflix on a tablet and enjoy it. Me, i'd rather install apps that get real work done and don't turn my brain into jello.

BlackBerry CEO: Tablet Market Is Dying

Cherubim1 Re:I agree (564 comments)

You can't do serious work on a tablet. Why do you think they are a niche product in business ? - because they lack decent real-word apps, that's why. The current crop of apps for most tablets are puerile garbage. Couple this with poor interfaces, weak multitasking and lack of hardware performance and you have a device which is useless for anything other than net apps and multimedia.

Cherubim1 Nope (564 comments)

You bought the wrong Netbook, dumbass. Stop blaming the hardware and take responsibility for your own purchasing stuffup. Tablets are frivolous junk. Awkward to hold. awkward to use, have no real-world usable and useful apps and are dead useless in daylight.

NSA Data Center Brings Concerns Over Security and Privacy and Jobs

Cherubim1 Re:5 Zettabytes? (138 comments)

Do you honestly think the NSA is using consumer grade hard drives ? They more than likely have access to storage technology that is beyond anything that is available to the public. As for NSA surveillance - big deal. The NSA went inward a long time ago so their is no point in worrying about their ability to eavesdrop on everyone.

The Case That Apple Should Buy Nokia

Cherubim1 Nokia are foolish (286 comments)

The last thing the mobile industry needs is Apple buying out its competitors as this would create less choice. Nokia does indeed have an agreement in place with MS for them to provide Windows mobile for their smartphone devices so I don't see how a buyout of Nokia could go ahead with that in place. Nokia really shot themselves in the foot by not adapting to change in the mobile market. They have made stupid decisons like killing off their Meego line of devices and not adopting Android.

Will the Desktop PC Live Forever?

Cherubim1 Desktops PCs are not going anywhere (625 comments)

I always here these premature death warnings about the demise of the desktop. It happens every year yet the desktop still marches on. and will continue to do so for the following reasons: 1. Corporate customers are the biggest market for desktops and that isn't going to change much if at all 2. Enthusiasts and gamers use desktops because the hardware is cost effective and one can pick and choose components 3. Desktop PCs are more powerful than any similar speced laptop and often cheaper

Linux Is a Lemon On the Retina MacBook Pro

Cherubim1 Utter rubbish ... (780 comments)

This is a completely stupid and ill-informed article. The real problem lies with Apple's proprietary junk hardware and their intolerance for users running anything other than that dreaded Mac OS X. Hence the real lemon is Apple and it's overpriced hardware. Linux can easily adapt to any hardware platform - the same can't be said about OS X and it's bastardized implementation of BSD.
