Ford Touts Self-driving Car, Launches Global Mobility Experiments

Enfixed Re:When will this stupid crap-o-rama end? (73 comments)

I agree with the AC, your post looks like a short sighted (idiot) or troll comment to me. The 33,561 people in the U.S. that died in 2012 from an automobile related incident and their families would probably be pro self-driving car.

We can discuss (argue about) the various merits of self-driving cars all day long but I'll make it simple: I trust a computer to do complex repetitive math all day long and not make a mistake where I would expect multiple screw ups from a human. Take that same concept and apply it to a car. Will there be issues still, yes... just a whole lot less.

Microsoft Paid NFL $400 Million To Use Surface, But Announcers Call Them iPads

Enfixed Re:It's pretty impressive (405 comments)

Disclaimer: Android Fanboy

While they may have been the "de facto" device in 2011, it looks like they were overrun by all the various Android tables a while ago and are still in market share decline. For a single device compared against all others they may have the most share, but not by OS. With Apple just catching up to Samsung’s 2012 products this trend will probably continue.

Enfixed Re:After All Those Lawsuits Against Samsung (730 comments)

In other news: Samsung has yet again copied Apples innovative efforts by introducing their own 5.5 inch screen device in a vain attempt to capture some of Apples newly created larger screen phone market.

Tired of Playing Cyber Cop, Microsoft Looks For Partners In Crime Fighting

Enfixed Re:no-ip is shady? (113 comments)

In all the years I've used NO-IP for personal and business DNS management, NOT ONCE have they done anything I'd even remotely consider shady. Their service was rock solid until Micro$oft came in with a hostile takeover, hell they didn't even bother to so much as talk with NO-IP beforehand.

A Bid To Take 3D Printing Mainstream

Enfixed Re:Here we go again (143 comments)

Such anger. :) I'll just answer in /. fashion

Gift: something voluntarily transferred by one person to another without compensation.

When people "Pledge" they do so with the expectation that they will 1) See the project complete and 2) get their reward. Sounds exactly like an investment to me.

you deserve to get screwed.

So you agree with me that when projects like Oculus Rift sell out they screw their pledgers. =P

Dyn.com Ends Free Dynamic DNS

Enfixed Re:Viable Replacement? (242 comments)

Go for No-IP. Been using them for years, personal and business. Exceedingly fast and their techs are awesome when you do have an off the wall issue. (Not affiliated with them in any way)

Ask Slashdot: What Do You Consider Elegant Code?

Enfixed Re:Linux kernel (373 comments)

1 Handles errors gracefully.

This statement always hits me as mind numbingly stupid. In general try / catch and other error managing statements are for the lazy that don't want to understand the environment and inputs well enough to write the proper code to manage them. You want rock solid code that will last for years, eliminate the errors, don't "handle them gracefully". The only exception to this rule should be when the native environment forces it upon you or there is a lack of some proper check "doesThisReallyExist()".

2. Only reinvents the wheel when there is a measurable benefit in doing so..

I learn more reinventing the wheel and there is no substitute to working with code you are sure of and know how it's going to perform.

I agree with the rest.

MtGox Finds 200,000 Bitcoins In Old Wallet

Enfixed Re:Smelling more fishy every day. (227 comments)

Pardon the ignorance, what are you referencing?

It's called "popular culture".

It's what happens outside basements...

Seems like a rough reply for one of the few people that would openly admit ignorance on Slashdot. ^_^ BitZtream, I commend your initial bravery!
