Steam Client for Mac Launches, Linux Client On the Way

Korey Kaczor Re:What to do (572 comments)

If your steam account is disabled, tough luck getting your games to work unless you can find a Steam emulator.

I had my account disabled for pretending to be a l4d2 developer. Granted, however, it was only done as a joke while talking to one person and that person was aware I was not really a developer. It was just done for comedic humor.

Apparently valve spends a lot of time looking for reasons to disable people's accounts, and mine was disabled like an hour after I got bored of the joke.

I had to bug them by constantly sending help tickets until my account was reenabled a few hours later. Of course, they wouldn't have reenabled it had I done anything wrong, but you'd think at least they could give a warning for me to stop instead of disabling my account with no reason given whatsoever!

Brain-Scan Lie Detection Rejected By Brooklyn Court

Korey Kaczor Re:Because they are unreliable. (197 comments)

Just wait until every job one applies for requires these. It's going to happen.

Look at how a lot of businesses already require mumbo-jumbo psychology tests for even 10$/hr wages; once this is cheaper it's going to be adopted for all jobs except flipping burgers or mowing yards.

Steve Jobs Hints At Theora Lawsuit

Korey Kaczor Re:Steve Jobs is different; he is abusive. (686 comments)

You're right here, as well. I was just thinking primarily of their operating systems and computer markets.

Apple definitely has them beat in the music player and smartphone markets.

But OS X's desktop marketshare is somewhere from 3-4%.

Steve Jobs Hints At Theora Lawsuit

Korey Kaczor Re:Steve Jobs is different; he is abusive. (686 comments)

Translation: I think Apple is the best thing ever, thus Steve Jobs cheating Woz out of money is morally okay! And asking potential employees if they're virgins in the job interview is entirely appropriate as well!

Steve Jobs Hints At Theora Lawsuit

Korey Kaczor Re:Steve Jobs is different; he is abusive. (686 comments)

Thanks.

Jobs is worse than Bill Gates.... granted, both are pretty much assholes, but Jobs, I feel, is even worse. He's just lucky to be the underdog so he can look like he's fighting the bad guy.

I don't even think (correct me if I'm wrong) that even Bill Gates stole from his #2.... Wozniak was the mind behind the Apple II and yet Steve Jobs cheats Wozniak out of money because he, Woz, was in the hospital at the time (if I have the story straight). What a great man to run a company. Hell, maybe he can be an "innovative" CEO by asking potential employees if they're virgins or not! Think Different!

Apple's R&D, marketing, and innovation is far better than Microsofts, and that's undoubtedly true. But the way they act, their soviet style secrecy, suing fans of theirs who leak material simply because they love Apple's hardware and software, disgusts me. They're worse than Microsoft and as bad as MS is, I'm almost glad they were the monopoly we got in the 80s and 90s and not Apple Computers.

Plus Apple gets it a bit easier, with them taking the backbone of their O/S from FreeBSD.

I forgot the mention that the laptop was a MacBook, or whatever the most expensive line of Apple's laptops.

Hell, it can be an iPad if you want it to be.

Steve Jobs Hints At Theora Lawsuit

Korey Kaczor Re:Steve Jobs is different; he is abusive. (686 comments)

Steve Jobs walks into a coffee shop and finds a college-aged student drinking chai, busily typing away on a laptop in front of him on the table.

"Hey, kid, what's up?" Steve Jobs flashes a big smile, and extends his warm, friendly paw.

The college kid looks up while sipping on his drink, and for a moment does not register his messiah, until he does a double take and spills chai down his shirt.

"Wow! It's really Steve Jobs! I hope you heard my prayer last night!"

"Um, yeah..." Jobs says, affirming the question with a hint of confusion. "Look, I'll give you an iPod, signed with my name on it, if you give me your liver."

College student's eyes widen. He can barely contain his excitement, and he manages to mutter a weak "yes" before passing out from his sheer spiritual bliss.

The next day, Steve Jobs woke up for the first time in a long time, ages in fact, free from jaundice and a new hankering for a few shots of Malibu, and was last seen leaving a box that said "i-p-p-p-p-p-pod" on a grave in a cemetery.

Korey Kaczor Re:Steve Jobs is different; he is abusive. (686 comments)

I believe he also cheated Steve Wozniak out of money, while Wozniak was recovering in the hospital, back in the 70s or so.

I'd be hilarious if an Apple Fanboy donated his liver to Steve Jobs. Maybe that's how he got one so quickly.

Steve Jobs Hints At Theora Lawsuit

Korey Kaczor Re:The bottom line (686 comments)

What if dirty hippies are stealing your apples? You know, they hop over your fence, climb up your apple tree, and start taking the apples. You confront them, and they're all like, "Yo, man, you can't, um, steal mother nature." Then flash those damned, self-righteous smug looks.

I think they're working for Al Gore. Like, his henchmen or something. After all, he _IS_ on the board of directors for Apple Computers (TM).

He doesn't know anything that we don't already know.

However, he, on the other hand, thinks different. (TM).

Palin Email Snoop Found Guilty On 2 Charges

Korey Kaczor Re:Obstruction of justice (291 comments)

True, though, wouldn't shock me if they just said whatever they could to see what would stick.

Kid's laywer probably wasn't amazing if the kid was dumb enough to plead not guilty.

Palin Email Snoop Found Guilty On 2 Charges

Korey Kaczor Re:Obstruction of justice (291 comments)

He ran away from the feds when they came knocking, and apparently formatted his hard drive to erase evidence (the wikipedia page says deleted, but I'm guessing that's what he did).

US Students Suffering From Internet Addiction

Korey Kaczor Of course (307 comments)

People today are broken and oversocialized, and more importantly, too careful. The anonymity of the internet coupled with its ability to let people "construct" their image of self that others perceive; take that away, and people are afraid of communicating with others.

Of course, not with close friends, but you can look at how people in a bus or a subway will stare at the floor and try their best not to make eye contact.

SETI Is 50 Years Old; No Sign of ET

Korey Kaczor Think of the dangers, though. (454 comments)

It's already hard enough to live on this planet without being irritated by terrestrial life. What makes you think we'll find intellient life on other planets, if we can't even find it on our own?

Just remember the most irritating person you've ever come across? What if we come in contact with aliens, only to find out they're even worse? Maybe they don't have decent indoor plumbing on their planet, and put the used toilet paper in the trash cans instead of inside the toilet?

I'm thinking that we should stay hidden.

It wasn't that that caused the other kids to leave you alone in fear. It was the Manowar t-shirt you wore that instilled fear in their tiny, palpitating hearts.
