LG's 84-inch 3840 x 2160 Television Doesn't Come Cheap: $17,000

Crasoose For HDMI yes. (152 comments)

That is not the comprehensive list of video inputs though, the LAN being one which would handle any resolution we have currently. I'm surprised the thing has VGA and no DVI, what an oversight!

Crasoose This is too nice. (40 comments)

When do we get a version that puts someone in discomfort at the level of getting your blood pressure level checked whenever they post something awful?

Nebraska Sheriff Wardriving, Sending Letters About Unsecured Wi-Fi

Crasoose Re:I'd leave my wifi open (248 comments)

They don't need to break into your computer if you leave it unsecured, everything you are transmitting via wifi is open. Unless you never use wifi, I'd shoot for a dual band router if you are trying to help random people and leave some quality of service on that connection while you're at it. If they need internet so badly at that point they can always knock on your door and ask nicely.

Your Moral Compass Is Reversible

Crasoose Did they even care in the first place? (295 comments)

I'd not be surprised if you planted a bunch of questions that are obscure to the every man and he changed his opinion when influenced. It also depends on how many questions they asked that were relatively new to the participant, they might get a bit overwhelmed with picking their answers. Especially if it is a topic like Net Neutrality to Joe Sixpack.

I think the most surprising part of the summary for me is that someone found it surprising.

Microsoft Blocks FSF Donation Website As a 'Gambling Site'

Crasoose Re:Microsoft is the bad guy, how exactly? (301 comments)

Microsoft Blocks FSF Donation Website As a 'Gambling Site'

Crasoose Microsoft is the bad guy, how exactly? (301 comments)

"FSF has submitted a correction to Microsoft and they are now waiting for a response."

So there was a problem with their website that caused it to be blocked automatically by their web filtering software, how is this news? Why is everyone so paranoid and not even waiting for Microsoft to reply or give them an exception? Even if they don't allow it, maybe they would rather their employees donated in their own free time and not on their network?

Laser Treatment For Earth-Bound Asteroids

Crasoose The earth is about to be destroyed (120 comments)

Lets make sure we follow patent laws.

"And, are you not glad that now someone has published a paper on it, so Megacorp cannot 'patent' this Earth-saving idea?"

But don't forget, when lives are stake we have to make sure the laser is FCC approved as well.

Could a Computer Write This Story?

Crasoose Why would I want an article then? (101 comments)

I don't know about anyone else, but if I read an article It's because I want a unique input or take on data already given. If there is going to be some robot just writing a bland article about information already presented, can't they just give me the straight information and be done with it? There will not be any good takes on an event when it is programmed at this stage in time.

Apple To Help Foxconn Improve Factories

Crasoose Cynical (166 comments)

I hope its just me being the cynical bastard I am but why do I have the funny feeling this money won't go towards improving conditions? I hope "splitting initial costs" means apple will be expecting some inkwork before they give over some money.

Bitcoin Mining Startup Gets $500k In Venture Capital

Crasoose Prioritization? (381 comments)

When it comes down to it, am I going to be losing performance in their game because they would rather be making money? I hope they state plainly their intentions from the get-go, but we all know that won't happen.

Vote parent up. It's not like Comcast is distributing this through their private LAN, their WAN is a part of the internet and fully connected to it.
