A Closer Look At the Syrian Electronic Army

DebianDog Re:a.k.a. Mohamed Abd AlKarem (47 comments)

The hell I don't! LISTEN, KID! I've been hearing that crap ever since I was at UCLA. I'm out there busting my buns every night. Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes.

Congress Demands Answers From Google Over Google Glass Privacy Concerns

DebianDog Go Free Market (201 comments)

Maybe I missed the memo where I will be forced to wear these Cyborg looking glasses but, given the news coverage these things are getting, I have the feeling I did.

Steve Jobs Lashes Out At Android

DebianDog Re:Open? People break both open. (864 comments)

Exactly. The difference between to two is not THAT large. I am a total Apple Fanboi but a Droid user. AT&T service blows here. Anyway... In order to get the full Droid experience. You have you root your phone. Then Verizon does it damnedest to make sure if you load a new ROM it is a pain to find the SBF to restore it factory. Usually there is a few cease and desist letters then it shows up so many places they forget about it. Then, if you are unlucky enough to have the Droid X you get to also deal with eFuse and Verizon doing it's part to make sure only it's content comes across the HDMI port. Sorry, grass ain't that green in Droidland.

Ballmer Says Microsoft Wasted Time On Vista

DebianDog Microsoft Wasted Time On Vista (375 comments)

Microsoft Wasted Time On Vista but.... I and the place I work for, did not.

Now it is up to the desktop support staff to figure out how to get several thousand XP boxes and user data migrated to Win 7 in a timely manner. Poor bastards!

iPhone 4 Beta Shows AT&T Tethering

DebianDog Re:What is the point? (240 comments)

Yeah but when you live there is sucks. When I see those AT&T coverage commercials I SCREAM!!!! (well it is more for the wife since she has an iPhone)

Where I live I can't even make an AT&T phone call within 10 miles of my house, yet my internet is provided via Verizon Wireless Broadband.

I pray the iPhone come out on Verizon soon...

iPad UK Pricing Confirmed; Apple UK Tax Applied

DebianDog Re:Bend over, Britain! (248 comments)

Even if I pay top dollar for all the Apple products I want, every year, it is WAY less than the 10% of the gross I am expected to tithe with many other religions. I mean WAY cheaper... even with VAT added.

Apple Bans Jailbreakers From the App Store

DebianDog Re:Mod me down (507 comments)

Umm I do not have an iPhone but at least 13 MILLION people do. They expect to sell another 15 million or so this year and I would bet on it if the 4G is released.

You may not like the "lock in" from Apple or the "lame" AT&T service but it is FAR from "crap" or "stupid". The iPhone DOMINATES the worldwide smartphone market. http://theappleblog.com/2010/01/22/iphone-dominating-worldwide-smartphone-usage-report/

The N900 has it own limitations the biggest being having to use AT&T or T-Mobile and large upfront cost.

Linux Foundation Announces 2010 "We're Linux" Video Contest

DebianDog Re:"The winner" = Exactly (460 comments)

SO wrong it is not even funny. Never mind the 100's of cameras iMovie supports natively.. and ignoring the 70+ formats QuickTime supports there are DivX plug-in, Windows Plug-In for both import and export. Worse case you pass it though StreamClip (free) and convert it to QT. About the hardest thing to convert is muxed MPEG-2.

Where as on of Linux best Editors, Cinelerra, still needs about $30 of plug-ins to do Windows media and MP3 audio correctly.

Linux Foundation Announces 2010 "We're Linux" Video Contest

DebianDog "The winner" = Exactly (460 comments)

I was perfectly happy with Linux until I wanted to start editing video. Most Linux video editing apps while "free" and do a basic job, they IN NO WAY compare with even iMovie that comes included with your Mac.

Apple's Trend Away From Tinkering

DebianDog Re:But isn't there room for both? (965 comments)

Bullshit. Flash is a TOTAL CPU/battery hog. Just unplug your laptop and "try" and play Farmville (or other heavy Flash app) for an hour. You won't .
