Speedier Screening May Be Coming To an Airport Near You

Infiniti2000 Re:I saw faster screening at Orlando (163 comments)

I agree and would further suggest that it's a form of legalized racketeering. In effect, the system created an inefficient process (racket) and then is attempting to charge us for speeding things up. How this isn't racketeering is beyond me.

Wozniak Gets Personal On Innovation

Infiniti2000 Analogy to Movies (161 comments)

A similar comment can be made about movies. I hate remakes and especially reboots. Even movies made from book are better than remakes. Can you come up with something new?

However, I disagree a little with Woz here because it's critical to improve existing technology. True innovation is difficult and important, but improving those first bits of technology is probably as crucial. The obvious case in point is the mobile phone. It has been around quite a while, but our lives are greatly affected by recent technologies (including infrastructure).

Judge Rules BitTorrent Cases Must Be Tried Separately

Infiniti2000 Re:Well thats a first (60 comments)

I don't insist, but prefer on-line and free and yes I understand the risks therein. I concede your point, not being an attorney myself, but I would think that the distinction in this word is not really useful. Why is it important to say that you can prosecute a criminal case, but not a civil one? I don't present this as counter-evidence, but the first link on searching for "civil prosecution" brings up some LA community college using it.

Wiktionary disagrees with your suggestion in the terminology. But, it's not like anyone really gives a shit about this pedantry.

Amherst Researchers Create Magnetic Monopoles

Infiniti2000 What is it? (156 comments)

For the lay people in this particular field, from TFA (also, wiki link):

As the name suggests, however, a magnetic monopole is a magnetic particle possessing only a single, isolated pole—a north pole without a south pole, or vice versa.

Amazon and GoDaddy Are the Biggest Malware Hosters

Infiniti2000 Re:Expected (76 comments)

So, is it your assumption that size is directly responsible for the malware? Why can't a large hosting company also institute the best protection mechanisms to reduce their malware content? GoDaddy I can see not giving a crap, but Amazon should do some proper management to reduce this problem.

First Recorded Observation of Freshwater Fish Preying On Birds In Flight

Infiniti2000 Impressive, most impressive (93 comments)

I find it impressive for several reasons: the bird is moving fast, the fish is moving fast, and the refraction caused by the (moving)water/air boundary has to be accommodated by a fish with a brain the size of a politician's. This is so difficult, in fact, that I find it amazing the fish had ever developed this capability.

Yeah, and that Level 18 stronghold on Game of War: Fire Age promised not to attack me either. I don't need to tell you how that worked out.
