Mayday Anti-PAC On Its Second Round of Funding

Destoo Re:Dream on. (247 comments)

To be taken seriously, one must hit them where it hurts.

Here is why the Snowden story got so big. One single little facet of the whole "government is spying on us" thing.
One Program.
Bullrun.

"Because of Snowden, we now know that the listeners undertook to do what they repeatedly promised respectable expert opinion they would never do. They always said they would not attempt to break the crypto that secures the global financial system.
That was false."
"...attempting to break the encryption that holds the global financial industry together, it had also stolen the keys to as many vaults as possible. With this disclosure the NSA forfeited respectable opinion around the world. Their reckless endangerment of those who don't accept danger from the United States government was breathtaking."

The Occupy Wall Street was all fun and games until one bullet point item came up. (Delaware being a tax heaven for Congressmen). As soon as that point made the news, all of the police forces, in sync, shut everything down.

The PAC needs something as effective and dealdy, and keep their mouth shut about it until it's too late to go back.

Samsung S5 Reports Stress Levels Through Heart Rate Variability Measure

Destoo Panic-A-Tech (tm) (62 comments)

But will it be able to tell you the difference between a heart attack and a panick attack?

Would you be interested in a device that links to your smartphone and lets you know, even before it happens, whether you're having a panic attack - or a heart attack?
- Yeah, yeah.
OK, here's how Panic-A-Tech works.
You wear this on your finger all day and it tracks your vitals.
Or if that's too embarrassing, there's also a Bluetooth suppository and that goes right where you think it goes.
And that comes with a retrieval kit.

Percentage of Elderly In Japan Continues to Grow as Number of Children Drops

4K Is For Programmers

Destoo Re:39" display for workstations? (520 comments)

Does that mean it will cost $100k to make the programmer 100% productive?

Yes. Exactly like it can take 9 women to give birth to a baby in one month.

Why Automakers Should Stop the Infotainment Arms Race

Destoo Yes, you're crazy. (317 comments)

>> Am I crazy, or does it seem like the automotive industry has lost sight of what will best serve the consumer?

The automotive industry has lost sight of what will best serve the consumer.
If you typed that in, and read it out loud, and kept a straight face..

They cannot lose something they never had.

Europe Needs Genetically Engineered Crops, Scientists Say

Destoo Re:Pandora's box (586 comments)

> And no. Cross breeding is not the same as gene modification. There are very few herrings that mate with a tomato IRL.

Well, if the music is right, set the mood with dim lights and candles AND you get them drunk enough, of course their genes will splice.

Mobile App Screens Calls With Brain Waves

Destoo Cat ears... (40 comments)

A friend bought a set of brainwave sensing cat ears at Pax East two weeks ago.

They worked so-so with him, but during the weekend we saw a girl with a set on who was reading. The ears WERE moving left and right as she was concentrating on the text.

Gartner Says 3D Printers Will Cost Less Than $2,000 By 2016

Destoo Patents patents patents... (170 comments)

The difference between consumer-class and enterprise-class 3D printers are minor. Controlled temperature environment is one of them.

As soon as one of the small fish is advertising features of the so called enterprise-class 3D printers, they are sued into oblivion by Stratasys and others using their patents.

Man Who Pointed Laser At Aircraft Gets 30-Month Sentence

Destoo Re:Good. (761 comments)

The problem is not even the parents.
The problem is affixing the magnet in a piece that can break or be sucked by the toddler.
Just like there are regulations about using lead paint on glasswares and plates, there should have been rules about using strong earth magnets ON toys.
Banning the sale of magnets AS toys is stupid.

New house

Destoo Destoo writes  |  more than 11 years ago

Got my house.

Soon, I will update my website.

"update" is probably not the right word for it.
Cannot update and empty string.
You can only, like, create it? no. That's not right either..

I need help here.. thanks.
