Ask Slashdot: What Can I Really Do With a Smart Watch?

Hognoxious Re:I'm confused (192 comments)

Are you allowed to pull out your phone, launching all manner of pocket cruft into the air which will then land on whatever it is you're trying to keep clean?

What Will Microsoft's "Embrace" of Open Source Actually Achieve?

Hognoxious Re:EEE (210 comments)

X-soft need the upcoming iDildo API functionality because, well, marketing say so.

The beancounters say IT can cross-charge it to underhands or overheads or something like that.

It's as sure as green apples aren't red that they can't be fucking arsed with building all that shit themselves.

Realistically, can you provide a scenario where M$ don't get some money out of this - apart from where a meteorite twats 7 barrels of shite out of X-soft's HQ?

Startup Magic Leap Hires Sci-Fi Writer Neal Stephenson As Chief Futurist

Hognoxious Back at t'skooil (46 comments)

If I'd told the careers adviser that I wanted to be a futurist I'd have got a clip round the ear and been sent to the headmaster. And when the other kids found out, they'd have given me a sound shoeing for being a right ponce.

Still, nice work if you can get it.

RFID-Blocking Blazer and Jeans Could Stop Wireless Identity Theft

People will replace all their clothes, rather than buying one tinfoil case/pouch per device. Makes total sense.

The Shale Boom Won't Stop Climate Change; It Could Make It Worse

Hognoxious Re:THERE HAS NEVER BEEN CLIMATE STASIS! (386 comments)

Or - and here is a notion that many may find strange - could it be that the left-vs-right divide is rather artificial, and not all political parties can be neatly fitted into one of two buckets?

Perhaps this is why the two-axis system was invented.

Not perfect, but a better approximation.

quatsch

Hognoxious Hognoxious writes  |  more than 6 years ago

BTW, the fallacy is actually reverse ad populum. After all, he was arguing that everyone not doing it meant it was better.

It's not that either. He was simply saying that somoene who does it is better than someone who doesn't - a perfectly reasonable argument.

The true reverse ad populum only applies to indie bands and cult movies; the less people have heard of them, the more "alternative" they are.

patent reform

Hognoxious Hognoxious writes  |  more than 7 years ago If it's published it can't be patented. Nowhere, I repeat, NOWHERE in the article does it say that prior art is abolished. Don't be a fucking idiot all your life. That goes for everyone else whose reading and comprehension skills are lacking.

I never really understood the concept behind forcing registration on users. Namely the NYTimes. Granted, I am sure it's for ad revenue, but atleast make it like CNN, MSNBC, etc...

Seconded. These cretinous oafs make you do it every time you visit their sites to download drivers and stuff.

No doubt whoever analyses the data think that the whole world is full of Helen Kellers - an assumption which a quick look around them does nothing to dispel.
