How Sony, Intel, and Unix Made Apple's Mac a PC Competitor

Coditor Steve Jobs (296 comments)

if he was still alive would have created a new asshole in this writer. What a load of crap. How do people get paid to write such utter garbage, he makes it sound like Apple is just a Sony drone instead of the world's most valuable company.

NSA CTO Patrick Dowd Moonlighting For Private Security Firm

Coditor Why is this not illegal? (83 comments)

I find it hard to imagine with so many laws in the US that this is not only illegal but a felony?

Coditor Money money money (346 comments)

Profit is king in the US. Providing for your citizens is king in Sweden. Apparently those are unrelated concepts.

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

Coditor I'm 6'5" (819 comments)

I either have to get the exit row or pay extra for better leg room. I physically cannot sit in most airlines seats. I don't mind it since I don't fly often. I wish they offered wide people some options as I am pretty narrow and don't like it much when people intrude on my seat area. But airlines really could care less whether anyone fits in the seats or not as long as they pay. I predict the seat pitch will get smaller and smaller until until double legs amputees can sit.

Reported iCloud Hack Leaks Hundreds of Private Celebrity Photos

Coditor Amazing... (336 comments)

...how some speculation posted on the internet has to be true. So far there is zero evidence it has anything to do with iCloud or even Apple, just speculation. The brute password hack was real but there is no evidentiary connection so far. Unless 100% of the celebrities were using iPhones and iCloud to store their photos it's just as likely there was some other kind of hack such as some place they all were at (people pointed to the Emmys as one possibility). But the internet is all about pumping up the noise. It might be iCloud, or it might not be, we don't have any proof yet. It could be someone at the NSA had too much booze one day.

Comcast Confessions

Coditor The easiest thing to do (234 comments)

Is to lie. Tell them you are moving to a city which doesn't have comcast. So they can't do anything but disconnect you. Of course once Comcast is the only Cable company left you are screwed.

Researchers Test Developer Biometrics To Predict Buggy Code

Coditor Just what we need (89 comments)

To be hooked up to some device while we work to measure how likely we are to wind up at the top of the stack rank. It could be completely automated, if it determines you just wrote sucky code it generates a pink slip email and a robot carries you out the door. Instant better code!

No RIF'd Employees Need Apply For Microsoft External Staff Jobs For 6 Months

Coditor Having recently endured layoffs (282 comments)

I was constantly amazed at how clueless the executives were when talking about the company with people being laid off present: "We're excited about the future things are going to be great, everything is roses, etc". Like they were saying "getting rid of all of you is so awesome."

If people were really against his positions, why did he get elected? Probably because he ran against a hamster and they had no choices. I wish we could vote no.
