Why Eric Schmidt Is Wrong About Microsoft Not Mattering Anymore

Higaran Re:Full spectrum of technology users (398 comments)

I already see it going down hill fast, corporations need someone with some balls to lead them, to make sure their products arent krap. Whats the big upgrade in the new iphone, a bigger screen and a map app that is totally broke. I will admit I am not a big fan of apple, but they used to at least try to be inovative with thier products. Now its just going ba a crcus over there untill they get some good leadership, of need to get a bailout from a diffrent company.

Why Max Payne 3 most anticipated game ever

Higaran Most anticipated game ever? (1 comments)

Seriously? I'm not a big fan of the series, but talk about over hypeing something. Plus why is borg version of Bill Gates the image that was posted for this, really doesn't make sense, I thought it was more of a playstation title.

A5: All Apple, Part Mystery

Higaran Re:Knowing apple.... (124 comments)

Using old hardware makes Jobs angry.... you wont like him when he's angry.... Then he wouldn't like what me and my friends did on sunday. We were walking in the mall in Orland Park, IL so just for fun we go into the apple store and change the back grounds on about half a dozen laptops to the microsoft logo, and the homepages to Yes we are all nerds.

Fellow Hackers Blast Geohot For Sony Settlement

Higaran Re:Inevitable but maybe a good thing (310 comments)

I agree, in theory I'd love to take on sony with this kind of thing. But when the shit hits the fan and you have a lawyer telling you that you could lose your house and everything you've worked your whole life for then your I'd probably save my own skin too. Anyone that says the guy didn't do enough is an idiot, and they can only say that because they've never been anywhere near that kind of a situation. Companies like $ony have armies of laywers and will look for loopholes that would probably include lawsuits for anyone you've ever met your entire life, no one need that kind of hassle in thier lives. So I think everyone should just let the guy be, he's been trough enough already, and what he did do is alot more than most people.

Xbox Live Rewards Program Launched!

Higaran They better back track your points (1 comments)

I've been a gold member for 6 years, they better give me points for all of them. I'm not asking for points for all my purchases just for the yearly subscriptions, they are saying they want to reward their customers, if not then this thing is lame.

Cloud-based Browser to defeat Network Site Blocks?

Higaran It's already kind of been implemented. (1 comments)

Opera Mini servers get the page that you want to go to and then, the send it in a way so that is is viewable on your phone. So I'm sure that they will come out with a versoion for the tv's and stuff. Hell, they have a version that is compatable with the nintendo DS, so im sure that it's just a matter of time, for the tv work arounds.

Did Microsoft Alter Windows Sales Figures?

Higaran Re:SOP? (165 comments) I know this is kind of an old link but 70% of the market qualifies as monolopy. Plus the fact that they are about 30% of all music sold in the us every month. They are even under a DOJ invistigation. also kind of an old link. Then they are trying to dictate other stuff, like the whole thing with flash. IMHO if the DOJ is investigationg you for anti-trust laws, then your pretty much a monolopy or on the verge of becomeing one.

Can Windows, OS X and Fedora all work together?

Higaran You man not like this (1 comments)

It may be cheaper and easier to just turn everything into windows based. I'm sure if you you go to some Microsoft guy and say I'm going to convert everything in my company to linux, unless you give me a deal on licenses. I'm sure he will, hey you should probably do it anyway, I've done it, it will usually make the guy krap a brick, and give you a good deal. I'm sure you can get all the adobe stuff for windows, so that's just one department to turn over, instead of three.
