Forbes Revisits the Surface Pro 3, Which May Face LG Competition

CountBrass timothy is a synonym for low quality "news" (101 comments)

It was posted by timothy: he's always been a provider of shit content.

The precipitous fall in the quality of user-posts is more recent and the main reason I rarely bother even visiting /. any more.

Forbes Revisits the Surface Pro 3, Which May Face LG Competition

CountBrass Re:I have a Lenovo Miix 2 (101 comments)

It weighs more, you can't leave the keyboard behind making it very heavy and large for a table.

And it completely lacks a digitiser: so no handwritten note taking, drawing etc etc.

But yeah, apart from all of that it's exactly the same ^^

CountBrass sigh... (101 comments)

The SP3 doesn't use a Wacom digitiser... it uses one from N-Trig.

Forbes Revisits the Surface Pro 3, Which May Face LG Competition

CountBrass Try reading the article.... (101 comments)

This is about the SP3 not the SP2 and the article addresses the question of display scaling.

Forbes Revisits the Surface Pro 3, Which May Face LG Competition

CountBrass Low quality posts as usual. (101 comments)

The quality of posts on Slashdot has really crashed in recent years but those on this story really are the very bottom of the barrel.

Not so much news for nerds any more, more like the ramblings of the under-educated and over-opinionated.

I could feel the loss of IQ points from just reading their drivel

How Apple Watch Is Really a Regression In Watchmaking

CountBrass Re:How big a fuss is it, really? (415 comments)

So I take it back to Apple and have them replace the battery.

Or I sell it to someone like you on eBay.

> Even with some self-winding watches, they require a funky gyroscope case on a nightstand to get and stay powered up.

Rubbish.

We need a purge on Slashdot to get rid of all the non-nerds and non-geeks who can't seem to string two coherent thoughts together before posting.

How Apple Watch Is Really a Regression In Watchmaking

CountBrass Re:cell phones and notepads (415 comments)

Err no. Early mobile 'phones had poor battery life and were like bricks: I had one.

That didn't improve until the generation of 'phones that included the Nokia 2110. But those were not 'early mobile phones' by any stretch.

A single cable and plug it into any USB charger, or even your computer.

You didn't actually think much before posting your comment.

That's a very unscientific comment.

His sample size is small but it's still valid, I'm afraid.

Kickstarter Cancels Anonabox Funding Campaign

CountBrass Re:Hungry in Italics, Fuck Kickstarter (76 comments)

Not if the content of the traffic gives that away anyway.

And Tor concentrates all your traffic which makes some types of attack easier.

Chimpanzee "Personhood" Is Back In Court

CountBrass Stop trolling and learn to use Google. (385 comments)

Slashdot isn't an academic discussion board where precision is required.

Stop being such an obvious troll; or at least try to troll with finesse.

Antarctic Ice Loss Big Enough To Cause Measurable Shift In Earth's Gravity

CountBrass A question for the 'climate change' fraudsters.. (232 comments)

What ever happened to the previous environmental scares used to try and drum up funding for your pseudo-science?

- We were told acid rain would destroy European forests. Hmm doesn't seem to have happened.

- We were told CFCs were destroying the ozone layer and causing wild animals to go blind. We banned CFCs and it has had no effect on the hole in the ozone layer and the claims of blindness have been proven to be lies.

- We were told that the Sahara desert was growing south: what actually happened was the area got greener!

Environmental scare stories, of which the impact of Climate Change is just the latest incarnation, has a long and dishonourable history of dishonesty.

Why Apple Should Open-Source Swift -- But Won't

CountBrass Your post is a non-sequitur. (183 comments)

That Objective-C "came as a package" does not mean Apple "didn't adopt Objective-C".

Nor does your statement that "Objective-C is an attempt to graft SmallTalk style... blah blah blah"

Why Apple Should Open-Source Swift -- But Won't

CountBrass Article shows fundamental lack of understanding (183 comments)

Agreed.

And I think Swift is rather disappointing.

Given the opportunity to make a clean sweep and introduce a modern language for OSX and iOS Apple decided to make one that is so fatally flawed in so many ways.

Type-casting -oh my lord type casting- is so astoundingly bad in Swift it really beggars belief that in the 21st century anyone could design something that bad!

Link Between Salt and High Blood Pressure 'Overstated'

CountBrass Re:CDC guilty of correlation == causation (291 comments)

A few thousand years is no time at all in evolutionary terms.

So I assume you're arguing that bread is something we haven't yet evolved to safely digest?

I agree: I'd go as far as to say that gluten intolerance and diabetes could be considered part of the evolutionary process, weeding out those of us who lack the genes to safely digest high carb, cereal based, diets.
