World's Servers Process 9.57ZB of Data a Year

Even on Slashdot FOE Re:But... (170 comments)

The only way to do this with modern technology is called an Arcade. Yeah, I went there.

If people have physical access to the hardware and software, all the security in the world won't stop them from doing what they want to it in the long term.

Sony To Offer Free Identity Theft Monitoring

Even on Slashdot FOE Re:Rights (157 comments)

I see you lack the concept of "replay value". Some people like playing games more than once, especially sandbox games and games with level editors.

Even on Slashdot FOE Predicted future news (136 comments)

A famous rock star was sued today by an outraged mother whose daughter played his recording on the Kiss Transmission Device. The mother wants it to be ruled as child molestation and to be awarded infinity plus one dollars as damages for this heinous crime.

Even on Slashdot FOE Re:Simple (379 comments)

Did you pack them correctly? There's more to it than putting it in a box and filling the gaps with packing peanuts.

Mediacom Using DPI To Hijack Searches, 404 Errors

Even on Slashdot FOE Re:Simple (379 comments)

I don't know where you live, but I don't have that issue. The only thing vaguely wrong with my mail is that a lot of it wont fit into my mailbox flat. I have received exactly one damaged box, and the contents were intact.

Mediacom Using DPI To Hijack Searches, 404 Errors

Even on Slashdot FOE Re:Government created this monopoly (379 comments)

No, the alternative was to regulate the monopoly as if were a monopoly, as opposed to pretending there were free market forces affecting the company.

Amazon Automatic Pricing Lists Book At $23M

Even on Slashdot FOE Re:Why pay $x when you can pay $x^x? (147 comments)

According to them, 0 units at $8.5b. Clearly people must be pirating the content, and should be sued to recoup the money!

Sony's New Android-based Dual Screen Tablets

Even on Slashdot FOE Dual screen game system? (129 comments)

So Sony is marketing the PDS now? (Playstation Dual Screen) I wonder if I will be able to play NDS games on it.

Sony Reportedly Ends PSP Go Production

Even on Slashdot FOE PSP vs 3DS (47 comments)

One thing people forget is that, for a growing number of games, the PSP is also capable of 3D via setting the display to red-cyan anaglyph images.

Of course, this is a 3rd party feature that can only be used on hacked PSPs last I checked, but it's not like that's very hard.

Chinese Censors Crack Down on Time Travel

Even on Slashdot FOE Re:First Post (154 comments)

Try listening to feminists on the internet. A lot of them clearly either don't understand the concept of "equal rights" or would vastly prefer force men to be Stepford Spouses.

Protip: by and large, pirates get all of your nice patches/DLC/multiplayer/whatever. Even on consoles.

Scientists Create a "Worth Saving" Index For Endangered Animals

Even on Slashdot FOE Predicted future news: (259 comments)

Professor Corey Bradshaw was assassinated by PETA agents for daring to imply that any animal was less important than any human. Their press release states that any other scientists that dare to put the survival of the hated human race above the that of the least important member of the animal kingdom would be similarly put to death.

Is Science Just a Matter of Faith?

Even on Slashdot FOE Re:No. (1486 comments)

How about all of the verses where Jesus told off the Pharisees for expecting some sort of sign proving he was the son of God? Oh, wait, contradictions are taken in the way that is most beneficial to the side of the argument I'm not on, I forgot.

Is Science Just a Matter of Faith?

Even on Slashdot FOE Re:No. (1486 comments)

Every version of the Bible that I have read, KJV, NIV, ETC, agree on one thing - Faith is expected to be blind. Wanting anything even vaguely resembling proof is a sin.

Call me back when the first Super Robot War happens. We're getting close to working power armor, at the very least.

Mars Rover Down? Spirit Stays Silent

Even on Slashdot FOE Good run (91 comments)

They did only design the Mars Rovers with a six month operational life. That they lasted as long as they have was extremely lucky.
