Sony Overtakes Rival Nintendo In Console Sales

P-niiice Re:Not just that (127 comments)

Exactly. the wii was a fad console, which made a killing on sales, but they weren't the kind of gamers who continually paly the system and buy new games. With Micorsoft and Sony around though, that may be the best console-selling strategy for them. The alternative is going the Sega route. They'd make a killing that way.

Apple Confirms Purchase of Beats For $3 Billion

P-niiice Re:I dislike Beats... (188 comments)

No they aren't bad at all, and thousands of internet sound engineers have taken the 'overpriced' description and interpreted that as 'total crap'. They're not bad headphones - good ones actually, just not as good as their price, and too bassy for some. They're a fashion statement - pay less and get the same or better sound, or wear the fashion and pay for that privilege.

The Best Parking Apps You've Never Heard Of and Why You Haven't

P-niiice Our money is wheat for the reaping (163 comments)

So now I need an app to help me park with as little butthurt as possible. It could be that people haven't realized how thoroughtly nickle-and-dimed our lives have become. It's pretty sad. Any everytime I try and think of something sadder, its already been done.

IPCC's "Darkest Yet" Climate Report Warns of Food, Water Shortages

P-niiice Re:What about the inherent bias? (703 comments)

That's not science, it's policy. We can't get going on policy until we at least resolve that something is wrong.

Ask Slashdot: Suggestions For a Simple Media Server?

P-niiice Re: UMS (420 comments)

SMB streams 1080P stuff fine across my network, as long as I'm close to the router. 720P is damn good anywhere in the house. Been doing it for a long time, most lately on my Nexus 7 and my GBox MX2.

AT&T Introduces "Sponsored Data" Allowing Services to Bypass 4G Data Caps

P-niiice Sprint (229 comments)

What bothers me is the additional revenue this will generate for AT&T may entice Sprint to go the same route by ending unlimited LTE and going to caps and metering. It's just another enticement. I'm digging my Sprint service just as it is.

The Hobbit and Game of Thrones Top Most Pirated Lists of 2013

P-niiice Re:Clearly losing money? (193 comments)

Piracy may have added more revenue than was 'lost' by the download. You'll never see the real numbers though to know either way or the other.

Former Head of NSA Calls For Obama To Reject NSA Commission Recommendations

P-niiice Re:Failure polls well?!? (316 comments)

And that's why I don't have the balls to be President. Personally, I think the solution is keep the capability but somehow rigidly enforce a real, transparent review process. Demonizing Bush and Obama isn't helping here. We should be more mature than that. We should be fixing the problem.

Ulbricht Admits Seized Bitcoins Are His and Wants Them Back

P-niiice Yeah.... (243 comments)

I'm pretty sure I would have kept my mouth shut. The worst thing you can do is make it easier for the feds. But who knows, I've never been arrested on those charges and had a shitton of bitcoins seized.
