EU Committee Votes To Make All Smartphone Vendors Utilize a Standard Charger

Dot.Com.CEO Re:Sure, it's good today (415 comments)

If I had to guess, working in IT, you probably only support devices for 1-2 years max

I actually laughed out loud at that.

So you were doing "web development" on what? Lynx?... Mosaic?... Gopher perchance?

The Android SDK Is No Longer Free Software

Dot.Com.CEO Re:Ubuntu Mobile ... (535 comments)

Yeah fair enough. I'm actually replying to a lot of comments at the same time and I seem to have lost my train of thought on this one.

The Android SDK Is No Longer Free Software

Dot.Com.CEO Re:Ubuntu Mobile ... (535 comments)

I appreciate what you're saying but I don't think for most people an open bootloader is even remotely comparable to child labour. I know I'm stretching your point, but anyway...

You and I are geeks, we like flashing our phones. The vast majority do not care, nor will they ever care. I cannot make it any clearer than that.

The Android SDK Is No Longer Free Software

Dot.Com.CEO Re:Ubuntu Mobile ... (535 comments)

No, but I apparently have to remind people that they are a huge minority and their opinion is more or less irrelevant to what the real world thinks; and the real world does not give a flying fuck, nor does it know about, "unlocked bootloaders". It's a sacrilege in /., I know, but hey, maybe some of us should state the obvious. I will never buy a phone without an unlocked bootloader. You will not and perhaps many in /. will not. This does not a trend make, and at the end of the day the iphone is the best-selling phone and not one soul cares about it having a locked bootloader. At any rate, apologies if my tone was offensive to you at any point.

New Sony Patent Blocks Second-hand Games

Can you read? How explicit does an argument have to be before you find merit in it?

You're confusing bootloader locked with SIM locked. Those things have fuck-all to do with one another. Installing a custom ROM does not, ever, unlock your SIM-lock.

New Sony Patent Blocks Second-hand Games

Dot.Com.CEO Re:Remember Steam (344 comments)

You are actually the one confused there. Civ V is a steamworks game (and if it isn't, just find one that is). It works as follows: you buy the disk, you install it, it asks for the serial when it installs and when you put it in, it links the game to your steam account. You cannot, after it has been linked, sell the game. You can sell the disk, but you cannot install it without the serial.

The Android SDK Is No Longer Free Software

Dot.Com.CEO Re:Ubuntu Mobile ... (535 comments)

So you think that people want to upgrade their 2 year old phone because... what? The software isn't upgraded? You don't think that maybe it's because they can get a new phone, for free, that is five times as powerful, has a hugely better screen, a damn better camera, lasts longer and is better looking? You think if you gave people free upgrades on an unlocked phone, they'd keep the phone forever? You think those of us who have a Nexus don't upgrade because we have a good developer community?

Where in Steam's Linux page do you see "GNU/Linux"? *Thankfully* they speak about Linux.

I give up. You have obvious reading comprehension problems and / or are bored and just want to preach to the slashdot circlejerkathon.

Seriously. Are you arguing for the sake of arguing? AGAIN. You, I and a minority of users care about "unlocked bootloader". The vast majority do not, and never will.

You know what? Just because you, I and a hundred other nerds do care does not mean that the millions who buy fucking phones from their operator do, and no matter of sanctimonious whining on slashdot by you will change that.

Are you at all aware you can buy FULL PS3 games on the Playstation store for a while now? No? Oh well, it doesn't matter, have a misguided opinion anyway, this is slashdot anyway.
