Top Five Theaters Won't Show "The Interview" Sony Cancels Release

Cro Magnon Re:So stream it... (552 comments)

I'd be more likely to buy it streaming or DVD than going to a theater. Frankly, the "theater experience" sucks anyway.

Sony Leaks Reveal Hollywood Is Trying To Break DNS

Cro Magnon Re:This needs to stop ... (370 comments)

If we don't see the movie, the Terrorists win! If we do see the movie, Sony wins! That is what Star Trek calls the Kobiashi Maru.

11 Trillion Gallons of Water Needed To End California Drought

Cro Magnon Re:Is that the real problem? Or does it disguise . (315 comments)

That brings us back to the population issue. When people didn't take daily showers, there weren't as many of them and they could get farther away from their stinking neighbors.

Economists Say Newest AI Technology Destroys More Jobs Than It Creates

Cro Magnon Re: Good, we're not trying to create more work (632 comments)

Revolt? With what? A few guns and knives against armed drones? I would call it less of a revolt and more of a plinking session. :)

There are 7 billion people on Earth. Assuming 99% of them lose their jobs - just how much ammo do you have for them new-fangled drones?

Economists Say Newest AI Technology Destroys More Jobs Than It Creates

Cro Magnon Re: This is not the problem (632 comments)

My single income is quite a bit less than 100K, and there's no way in hell I'll have a 300K house, barring winning the lotto, something illegal, or both. But I still make more than many entire families I know. Some of them would be thrilled to make 50K. By their standards, I am rich.

Why Didn't Sidecar's Flex Pricing Work?

I clicked on "read more" to see if any of the 100+ comments were something besides complaining about Bennet. :-P

The Case For Flipping Your Monitor From Landscape to Portrait

Cro Magnon Re:All maximized all the time, even on tablets (566 comments)

Yeah, that's one of my peeves. Full-screen makes sense on my small iPhone, but my 10" iPad is more than big enough for 2 windows.

Ask Slashdot: Convincing My Company To Stop Using Passwords?

Cro Magnon Re:Every 30 days. (247 comments)

In a way, my card makes things even worse. I still have to change my Windows password every 2 months, but since I no longer enter it daily, it's a lot harder to remember.

New Virus Means Deadlier Flu Season Is Possible

Cro Magnon Re:Boy who cried wolf (163 comments)

Yeah, I remember the pig flu scare of 2009. My mom's BF and a friend of hers got very sick. Odd thing is, they both got shots.

Google Hopes To One Day Replace Gmail With Inbox

Cro Magnon Re:Stay the FUCK out of my inbox (239 comments)

Not necessarily. Before gmail, I paid for my email, and it sucked worse than gmail ever did.

The Cashless Society? It's Already Coming

Cro Magnon Re:Apple pay already lost... (375 comments)

Fine, for the merchant. What about people who are happy with their Android phones? Heck, I can't use iPay on my iPhone (4S), and I'm in no big hurry to upgrade, though I probably will eventually.

Montana Lawmakers Propose 85 Mph Speed Limit On Interstates

Cro Magnon Re:humans (525 comments)

Yeah, it would be nice if American drivers kept to the right. Awhile back I was driving in the right lane at about 60 MPH (the speed limit was 55), and came up on a truck in the middle lane. It had a sign the said "Don't pass on right". The only problem is, it was barely doing 40! So my only options were to slow to a crawl, pass on the right, or try to cross 2 lanes and probably get creamed by the cars doing 70+. I said a bad word and passed on the right.

About 40% of World Population Online, 90% of Offliners In Developing Countries

Cro Magnon Re:How online? (45 comments)

It's not even limited to the "developing world". My mom is totally offline; no computer, no internet, no cellphone. She does occasionally ask me to order something online that she heard about on the radio, but that's it. My GF isn't much better; she has an email, but doesn't use it much, and no facebook.

To be fair, I have no problem with them burning down the McDonald's. Don't know about the pizza place, some of those are pretty crappy.
