Amazon Launches Android-Powered 'Fire TV' For Streaming and Gaming

Gothmolly Can it play remote iTunes libraries? (180 comments)

I need something that will play iTunes. AppleTV and homebrew fiddly options are out. I need it to just work.

Also, I'd love to watch what happens when the voice recognition is active and you tell some "go fuck yourself". Will it immediately search for and start playing porn?

Ask Slashdot: Do Any Development Shops Build-Test-Deploy On A Cloud Service?

Gothmolly Your CTO is an idiot (119 comments)

He doesn't want to manage stuff in house because it's hard. But wait, that's his job, and why he draws C-level pay. If you are not just occasionally using it, the whole advantage of "cloud" goes away, unless you replace it with the concept of "outsource". Which might be his goal all along, either way, I would look for a new job. Cloud would be great if you needed to load test from 1000 machines or something, but even for that there are simulators.

Apple Patent Could Herald Interchangeable iPhone Camera Lenses

Gothmolly Or use a real camera (160 comments)

You're still stuck with the shitty sensor and tiny lens on the camera itself, regardless of what hipster filter you stick on it.

Gothmolly Re:energy from BRAKING - best for stop-and-go (262 comments)

"If you hit the brakes and stay at a low speed for five minutes, it does nothing."

Linux 3.14 Kernel Released

Gothmolly ZRAM doesnt provide a block device (132 comments)

It looks like it transparently compresses pages going to swap, it's not like you need a SEPARATE block device to be your 'zswap' device.

Prototype Volvo Flywheel Tech Uses Car's Wasted Brake Energy

Gothmolly Just like in Formula (262 comments)

This seems great for high or nearly-sustained speed driving, but what I really want is an electric only option from 0-15 mph, a "parking garage" or "traffic jam" mode that I can put my car into.

Recently, Wikipedia deleted the entry for the GNAA, the stub page can be found here. Note that AYBABTU and the Ha Ha Guy both have articles, and are similar in scope (Internet memes). Since Wikipedia's Chinese site is different, and article subjects frequently clean up their own articles, is this just another internal-cleanup job by Wikipedia, or is Wikipedia trying to account for taste?"
