RFID-Blocking Blazer and Jeans Could Stop Wireless Identity Theft

CimmerianX REquest the right card (110 comments)

You know you can request Credit cards and IDs without the RFID chip in it. I do this all the time with Visa and AMEX. I request cards without the Chip.... problem solved.

Multiple Manufacturers Push Hydrogen Fuel Cell Cars, But Can They Catch Tesla?

CimmerianX Makes no sense (293 comments)

Sure, instead of fully electric, where cars can charge off of the current grid (with the right outlet installed), let's invest is a fully proprietary fuel source.

Customers Creating Fake Amazon Pages To Get Cheap Electronics At Walmart

CimmerianX Not Fraud (287 comments)

... and I'll tell you why. Because if I get my LLC to get 1,000 people to each Pony up some money for a PS4, then I use these types of tactics to purchase PS4 from other retailers at a huge discount after having pooled the money from my 1,000 customers (divinding it up so no 1 customer funded 1 whole ps4) , then I provide each customer with a PS4, and then I run to the bank yelling yippee at all the money I just earned...well if anyone calls fraud, I might just get a bailout from the government to keep my LLC in place since I serve such a good purpose in providing access to cheap PS4s. Then the LLC can get a fine of 10% of 1 year's profits as I laugh from my sailboat.

Sony To Take On Netflix With Playstation Vue

CimmerianX End of netflix on PS (130 comments)

I can almost 100% guarantee that Sony will pull the Netflix functionality from all PS models.

Just like how the PS4 will no longer stream from a home media server because they started to offer their own streaming music service under the guise of "it's a more intuitive and streamlined process for the customer', we will see sony replace netflix with Vue citing the same bullshit.

Don't think they will? How's your PS3 linux partition? Oh wait, sony made that disappear when it suited them too.

Pirate Bay Co-founder Arrested In Northeastern Thailand

CimmerianX He should have... (189 comments)

Just think that if he had sold billions of bad mortgages and defrauded both investors and the public sending the entire world economy to the brink of collapse, he would have gotten no jail time and a multi-billion dollar bailout.

Instead he built a web page that lets people find trackers, and he must be put away for life.

'Merica!!!!!

Skilled Foreign Workers Treated as Indentured Servants

CimmerianX Re:Ive done this (284 comments)

Congrats to you.... I really mean it. But beware, because large companies no longer have any loyalty to their employees. If you can be replaced with a new visa recipient at a lower wage, you will be.

Speed Cameras In Chicago Earn $50M Less Than Expected

CimmerianX Re:Easy to solve - calibrate them to overestimate (398 comments)

You don't increase time on the yellow.... you let the yellow turn red on the same timer, but you leave both directions red for 2 seconds just to ensure the intersection is clear before showing a green light. That's how you make it safer.

JP Morgan Chase Breach Compromised Data of 76 Million Households

CimmerianX Sensitive information (76 comments)

Chase is really spinning this by saying that no sensitive information was taken in the hack.

Well, it seems that the crackers now have tens of millions of *confirmed* Names, addresses, phone numbers, and emails at the very least. That is a freakin treasure trove of information.

I like my privacy and take great care not to let information out into the world. But Doctors, banks, and gov always want every bit of info on you so they make the best targets.

FBI Chief: Apple, Google Phone Encryption Perilous

You are not Required to assist with the search warrant. You can't be forced to rip open your own couch cushions to aid the police in their search.

PayPal Integrates Bitcoin Processors BitPay, Coinbase and GoCoin

CimmerianX Paypal Sucks (56 comments)

Yep - Let the paypal bashing begin. Wait until Paypal acts as it's own clearinghouse for bitcoin transactions. It wants to keep control over refunds to the buyers and still wants to be able to 'freeze' your account like it does now.

Careful, they may take out the overhead storage because you could charge people a premium for 'lie down' space.

3 Recent Flights Make Unscheduled Landings, After Disputes Over Knee Room

CimmerianX Re:Don't eat so much then. (819 comments)

This arguement isn't about the width of your ass, is about the length of your thigh. As a 6'2" person, I have trouble like this all over the place with my knees butting up again whatever is in front of me (concert venues, my car's steering wheel). If my knees are already touching the seat and the jackhoel decides to recline, that's gonna hurt and I'm gonna be pissed.

UPS: We've Been Hacked

CimmerianX New Normal (62 comments)

I've now come to realize that it is the norm to cancel and request new credit cards/debit cards every 3 quarter just in case my card number has been compromised by one of these hacks.

Maybe if the whole country did the same, banks would finally switch to a more secure card.
