Google Mulling Wi-Fi For Cities With Google Fiber

DoctorFuji Re:Why not a government service? (39 comments)

Not so fast my friend. Corporate interests will squash anything including the government that tries to provide anything different.

Will Living On Mars Drive Us Crazy?

DoctorFuji You're still on Earth (150 comments)

Wouldn't the most critical component for the psyche be that you are on Mars? No calling off the experiment, no where to run. In the experiment, the participants will know in the back of their minds that if something goes terribly wrong, they will get pulled out or rescued.

How Satellite Company Inmarsat Tracked Down MH370

DoctorFuji Re:Flight recorder (491 comments)

P3 tacco again. P3s carry sonobuoys, which can listen underwater. You can drop enough to cover the "listening" area.

How Satellite Company Inmarsat Tracked Down MH370

DoctorFuji Re:Flight recorder (491 comments)

As for former P3 tacco, I give the following input: Only better and slower airborne asset is a helicopter. Given the remote location, the only way to get them to the search area would be by ship (destroyer (only a few helos, or aircraft carrier (many helos, but might not be available) So, what other choices do you have? Multi engine fixed wing search aircraft are the only way you could get coverage in this area. So the balance becomes how much area you can cover with radar and visual search patterns. You could search closer with surface ships, but you are talking alot of craft to cover a similar area, plus the lag time to gather them and get them to the location.

Drone Pilot Wins Case Against FAA

DoctorFuji Re:How did this go to trial? (236 comments)

No mod points, but would bump it up for the astute observation of if evasive manuevers were an AC or not and the point on regulatory creep.

An Inside Look At the Rise and Fall of RIM

DoctorFuji Anyone remember Palm? (267 comments)

Remember Palm? How they watched as the tech passed them by and never quite caught up. In their heyday, they had the market cornered for PIMs and saw the smartphone just kill them off. Their attempts to become relevant again were feeble at best.

Single-Player Game Model 'Finished,' Says EA Exec

DoctorFuji Re:Bollocks (439 comments)

Fallout Series (1,2,3, New Vegas, Oblivion, Morrowind) all good. Yes, can get dull at times traveling in their worlds, but interactive SP play is worth it. Not to mention the Mod community for Fallout and Oblivion that provide addons, upgrades and creativity. Also worth noting the mod community for the Half Life/Half Life 2 (origin of Counterstrike), plus all the addons (e.g. Gary's mod) and various scenarios based on the HL engine . If you have a good thing, gamers and independent developers will keep supporting the game and keep you coming back.

Facebook Calls All-Hands Meeting On Privacy

DoctorFuji Re:Limey (302 comments)

I assume Facebook started out with good intentions to be solely a social network with no designs on commercializing the concept. However, the dollar has skewed that. In this case, money talks.

Facebook Calls All-Hands Meeting On Privacy

DoctorFuji Re:Limey (302 comments)

Hmm. Whenever I have received mod points, I made sure to use them and not blow it off. And have been pretty consistent in how I used them. Not sure who the mod point gods are but hopefully you didn't do anything in the past to piss them off.

The Big Technical Mistakes of History

DoctorFuji Re:Human History has more than 10 years (244 comments)

Maginot was built to fight WWI technology and tactics. In the interim, mechanized infantry and tanks had advanced so that the blitzkrieg could actually be accomplished. In the history of warfare, haven't alot of changes in tactics been decided on the advances in technology that the loser did not forecast or plan for?

Google Says Spam Volumes On the Rise

DoctorFuji Re:spam will be with us forever (187 comments)

Your answer makes me think a good analogy is junk mail. I don't request any junk mail, but it shows up in my snail mail box regularly. Junk mailers have the same modus operandi... send it out in volumes and bank that a tiny percentage will respond. I don't think that junk mail or unsolicited ad mailers will ever go away.. its part of the "system".
