Android Copy of Young Woman Unveiled In Japan

OldGeek61 Re:Dammit Japan. (264 comments)

You need to read up on your Asimov, your comment doesn't have anything to do with them: 1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. 2. A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. 3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. So it looks like they pass that test!!

Chicago Debates Merits of ShotSpotter Technology

OldGeek61 Re:works in Boston (385 comments)

If it's so simple, why don't you start a company and build them cheaper??? You have no idea of the tech used in these things, it's an electrical nightmare.

Nvidia Drops Support For Its Open Source Driver

OldGeek61 Finally Happened (412 comments)

This doesn't surprise me one bit, when I got my new quad core and was having a ton of problems with 64bit drivers, all I was ever told in the multiple linux forums was that it works on older hardware! So I installed something that would work on my new hardware, Windows Vista! Haven't looked back since, so the linux community can go ahead and stay in the 20th century, I now have Server 08 installed with Desktop Experience and love it. Linux will never be ready for a normal end user.

FCC Asks You To Test Your Broadband Speeds

OldGeek61 Re:Extremely inaccurate for me, inflating the numb (454 comments)

Same here, we have an 8/2 connection and the FCC test told me I had a 21/4 connection. So I went to my standby test sites and both said 7.7 & 7.2 down and 1.4 & 1.5 up. Real accurate test.

Senator Prods Microsoft On H-1B Visas After Layoff Plans

OldGeek61 Re:Republican? (574 comments)

Are you really that brain dead??? Since the late '90s H-1B visa holders have taken over American jobs at half or less what an American was making!! And don't try to tell me different, I'M ONE OF THEM!!! I WAS REPLACED BY AN H-1Ber that's making half of what I was, and then they called me to fix the problems he didn't know how to for "Old Times Sake". You need to go from a 50k a year job to 20k a year, then you'll know!!!! Oh and getting an H-1B is not that hard when you have a major corporation helping you!!
