Automation Coming To Restaurants, But Not Because of Minimum Wage Hikes

P-niiice Re: This is silly (720 comments)

not if workers don't benefit. which has been the case since 1980 or so. until workers see some benefit from the increased productivity, the economy will essentially go nowhere for the middle class.

P-niiice Re:The diet is unimportant... (588 comments)

You body doesn't necessarily needs grains and sugar, so you're correct. I've lost 247 pounds so far on no sugar, carbs/grains, and starch.

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.

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.
