NVIDIA Unveils Dual-GPU Powered GeForce GTX 690

Jennifer3000 I call BS. (93 comments)

As an alleged "game developer", you'd think that you could afford more than an "old" "3-year old PC". Sure - you might keep a few older machines around as backups, or for testing on 32-bit OSes, legacy peripheral support, etc., but you're not "developing" on a modern PC? That's ludicrous. You are lying.

Whither the Portable Optical Drive?

Jennifer3000 scottbomb is clueless (440 comments)

Fuck you, troll. ALL Apple desktops (save one ITX server) have at least one optical drive standard. Your "logic" is for crap, and you obviously don't know jack about what you are attempting, futilely, to denigrate.

Why Do So Many College Science Majors Drop Out?

Jennifer3000 Correction (841 comments)

Second paragraph: Properly speaking, it's "this phenomenon" (singular) or "these phenomena" (plural). I can't tell for the life of me what it is you're trying to communicate in your rambling, incoherent post, but at the very least you could attempt to use correct grammar and/or spelling. I'll give you a pass this once, if English is not your first language (because you make the utterly irrelevant and snotty claim that you read The Brothers Karamazov "only in the original"). Douche.

Science Recover Genome of Black Death, Hope to Rec

Jennifer3000 PROOFREADER/EDITOR NEEDED (1 comments)

OMFG.... First of all, the Black (or bubonic) Plague is NOT caused by a virus - it's caused by a bacterium. Second, the plural of the word "virus" is "viruses" - NOT the pseudo-Latin bastardization "virii"; nor is it (as above) the pathetically incorrect "virus's". I would not have made these embarrassing mistakes later than elementary school. Sweet zombie Jesus.

Righthaven Looses In Colorado

Jennifer3000 Proofreaders Needed! (1 comments)

"Righthaven Looses..." Righthaven looses *what*? "Loose" is a transitive verb meaning "to set free" -- it's supposed to be "lose", apparently. I wouldn't have let that one by (especially in a headline!) when I was editor of my junior high school paper. Another sign of the rapid decline of Slashdot.

HP TouchPad To Be Liquidated At Fire Sale Prices

Jennifer3000 Restocking fee is N/A, and fee was eliminated. (368 comments)

Wrong. It's a PRICE MATCH, not a "return", as your woefully inaccurately characterization claims. Furthermore, Best Buy eliminated the much-hated (and rarely applied anyway) "restocking fee" about a year ago. Way to be current!

Aluminum-Celmet Could Increase EV Range By 300%

Jennifer3000 I read it for what it was. (182 comments)

I read it as "Aluminum-Celmet", which is exactly what it says. Stop being so lazy. Protip: generally, if a word is set off by being within quotation marks and/or is capitalized, it is being emphasized for a reason.

Is Final Cut Pro X Apple's Biggest Mistake In Years?

Jennifer3000 Re:PC vs MAC for Video Editing... (443 comments)

MAC (stop yelling!) is a brand of cosmetics. You must mean "Mac" - short for Macintosh - which is a brand of computer. Furthermore, Final Cut Pro might provide a lees-than-ideal user experience on a lower-end (or "cheap", in your parlance) Macintosh - albeit less so nowadays which standard (and maximum) RAM capacities have increased so much.

Mac Malware Evolves - No Install Password Required

Jennifer3000 You spelled "viruses" wrong. (374 comments)

The plural of "virus" is "viruses", not the botched pseudo-Latin neologism seen above. You obviously never had Latin classes.

Mac Malware Evolves - No Install Password Required

Jennifer3000 You're spelling it wrong (374 comments)

MAC (stop yelling!) is a brand of cosmetics. I believe you mean "Mac", which is short for Macintosh, a brand of computer manufactured by Apple, Inc.

Artificial Leaf Could Provide Cheap Energy

Jennifer3000 Re:MIT invents everything (326 comments)

Yeah... you mean "phenomenon" - the singular form of the noun. Again, please learn correct spelling, or have your computer do it for you if you don't know how, or are too lazy.

Typewriters, Computers, and Creating?

Jennifer3000 Santa Fe Institute (227 comments)

It's Santa Fe, not "Sante" Fe! Here in Santa Fe, we mock idiots who can't type properly, but that commonplace error is beyond my understanding... The letters "a" and "e" aren't even next to each other on a qwerty keyboard, so I can't figure out why that error occurs at least one out of 20 times when someone types "Santa Fe". I must see it once a day... credit card receipts from the ultra-crappy Best Buy here have stated "Sante Fe" since they opened -- eight years ago!

Best Buy Confirms 'Secret' Version of its Website

Jennifer3000 'Secret' URL here! (356 comments)

kiosk.bestbuy.com [currently down, or only accessible from certain IPs]

I work at Best Buy. My first day, I asked my supervisor (when I accessed what I thought was BestBuy.com from our restricted terminals in-store) why the URL read "kiosk.bestbuy.com" - she said, "Gosh, I don't know. I never noticed that."

Sometimes, the prices are higher; sometimes lower. It's never been explained to me, but I think the axiom "It's much easier to ascribe to evil that which is better explained by ignorance" applies here. C'mon guys, Best Buy was voted one of the top 100 corporate citizens in the U.S.
