Reaction To the Sony Hack Is 'Beyond the Realm of Stupid'

Higaran Re:Land of the free (566 comments)

I'm sure you've never been to the south side of Chicago. This city has some of the toughest gun laws in the country, but it literately is a warzone. It is not uncommon for 20-50 people being shot on any particular weekend, most of the guns are illegal, and I'm sure a good part of it is gang violence. I totally agree with the above comment, there is never a good middle ground because the pro and anti gun people are both wackjobs. I am firmly pro gun btw, I believe that if we went full open carry like Arizona then alot of that would calm down in a year or two at the most.

LG To Show Off New 55-Inch 8K Display at CES

Higaran Re:About time (179 comments)

It is easy to get high resolution on a small screen. The problem with the larger screens is that you have ALOT higher rate of defective screens, when you increase the size. Once that happens your cost go up because your basically throwing a bunch of them away.

Higaran Re:Inefficient (140 comments)

The whole point is that it is something people see moving around, it's alot cheaper than a security guard, plus it only takes 1 recharge of 20 minutes a day.

Ask Slashdot: What's the Most Hackable Car?

Higaran Almost any car from the last 5-10 years should do. (195 comments)

I'm not sure why you'd want to display the RPM to anyone but the driver, that should be very simple to pull off. The windows SHOULD already work the way you describe, as for the remote starter, those are VERY common now a days and you can get off the shelf parts to in stall one in a few hours.

Microsoft Rolls Out Robot Security Guards

Higaran Re:Dispensing Product (140 comments)

I agree with the writer of the article, it looks like a modern R2D2. I just want it to follow me around and beep when I say stuff to it.

Website Peeps Into 73,000 Unsecured Security Cameras Via Default Passwords

Higaran Re:Place the blame where it belongs (321 comments)

Most users don't care about security. If you made setting up a user name and password the first thing the user see before you can do anything else, people would still put a user name as "user" and password as "pass" or "1234"

Tesla Delays Launch of Model X Until Q3 2015

Higaran Re:Why? (111 comments)

It kind of is, they are almost as much of a tech company as a car company, what they do has a big impact.

Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo Crashes

Higaran Re:Sad, regrettable and probably inevitable. (445 comments)

Look back a few hundred years, people would die crossing the Atlantic Ocean on ships headed for the new world. Those people knew just as well that they might not make it either but they still tried.

MPAA Bans Google Glass In Theaters

Higaran Re:Anyone still going to the movies? (357 comments)

That only happens at the cheap shows now a days, any good place has online ticket purchasing, and/or kiosks when you can get tickets with out standing in line, at most you have to wait for one person in front of you to finish using the machine. Then they have reserved seating so you can actually pick where you want and you can see what seats are used up around you. Yes it's still a bit pricey, it's worth paying the extra dollar a ticket at the good places because they provide a good experience going to the movies.

The Cult of Elon Musk Shines With Steve Jobs' Aura

Higaran Re:Steve Jobs' products changed the world? (181 comments)

I agree, for all the praise people give him, all Jobs really did was be a guy that could get people to buy stuff. He invented nothing, he treated his family and friends like shit, I'm not even going how he acted to his employees.

Intel Drops Gamasutra Sponsorship Over Controversial Editorials

Higaran Intel doesn't care about the content (724 comments)

They only care that people are complaining, it's a PR thing. They are pulling their advertising because there is some controversy going on with the site, so it's easier to pull out then pick a side and anger people. Intel would plaster their logo on the side of churches if they knew that people wouldn't complain about it.

Drones Reveal Widespread Tax Evasion In Argentina

Higaran Re:Drones are cost effective? (208 comments)

I can buy an ok drone with a camera for around $1000 USD, send it 300 feet up in the air and easily see miles in every direction. You just do this a dozen times and you'll have most of a small town. It shouldn't take longer than a day to do, as long as you have enough spare or charged batteries.

Higaran What would they NOT let you do? (226 comments)

Was there anything that you tried to put in the show they they told you wouldn't be put in because it was to complex, or for some other reason. I know there is a lot of stuff that made it in, but what didn't get in there that you tried for?

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.
