Sony Thinks You'll Pay $1200 For a Digital Walkman

Jahoda Re: Clearly (391 comments)

Wow, so I guess you aren't the target market for a portable device designed to be use with headphones, carrying the "Walkman" brand? But thanks for letting telling us about your unique, insightful, and deeply relevant life experience, as most music lovers spend their lives in a cacophony of children and distractions with no opportunity to experience and enjoy high fidelity.

Researchers Discover SS7 Flaw, Allowing Total Access To Any Cell Phone, Anywhere

Jahoda LOL. (89 comments)

I like how you reach that conclusion that this is the result of security being considered only after the fact, rather than being an integral part of the design.

Backblaze's 6 TB Hard Drive Face-Off

Jahoda Re:Long story short (ad-less) (173 comments)

This is great information you've pulled together. I'd like to add that 5900 RPM is a common Seagate speed - and if the drive actually were 7200 RPM, it is likely based on past products in the market that it would be much more expensive than it currently is. Additionally, Seagate would miss no opportunity to advertise 7200 RPM on its website.

Once Again, Baltimore Police Arrest a Person For Recording Them

Jahoda It's an easy solution. (515 comments)

Whether via ballot box or ammo box, we replace the judiciary and the legislature with those who, regardless of "liberal" or "conservative" beliefs plan to uphold the fucking laws of this country, and prosecute the living fuck out of the folks who are doing this shit. Make some examples, and the rest will fall in line.

Except you know and I know that whatever your beliefs, the ballot box doesn't do shit any more. And I don't need to hide behind anonymity to say this shit.

Excuse Me While I Kiss This Guy: The Science of Misheard Song Lyrics

Jahoda Re:And the lawsuits (244 comments)

Now *that* is some fine A++ wegyu-grade irony, there. I truly applaud you for your achievement. I'm not familiar with the song, but reading the lyrics which can easily be found online, I see that you've cherry picked line 23 from a song which appears to about alcoholism being a slow road to death. It also makes some observations about what drives those people to it. So, yeah, it's pretty handily misinterpreted by those who gain joy in anonymously shitting up internet discussions and basically being generally unpleasant people.

CIA Lied Over Brutal Interrogations

Jahoda Re:The sheer stupidity bothers me... (772 comments)

Ah yes, but the things you propose aren't cruelty. You're prefer the violations to be more high-tech. That's some deep thinking there, Captain Autism. Please stop posting.

Jahoda Re:Justice (772 comments)

G.H.W. Bush was Director of Central Intelligence for 355 days in 1976. You can look that up for yourself. "Set the tone". LOL.

Microsoft Files a Copyright Infringement Lawsuit For Activating Pirated Software

Jahoda Re:Chinese computers come this way (268 comments)

Perhaps Microsoft would sell more copies of their software if they weren't charging for them like it is still 1997.

The Cashless Society? It's Already Coming

Jahoda Re:Lost!? (375 comments)

I know this will shock you, but wallet chains are classless and ugly as shit, particularly in the professional workplace where you'd like to be respected as a grown adult.

How the Rollout of 5G Will Change Everything

Jahoda Enabling US carriers to do what, exactly? (216 comments)

I can't speak for anyone else here, but I certainly can't watch even one HD movie on my phone, with the 4 GB plan for which I'm grossly overcharged by Verizon. There's absolutely no incentive in the US for carriers to change their tune played to their captive audience. Great, with 5G I can get shit service that much faster.
