Why iTunes Radio Could Take Down Pandora

Porchroof Bah! (166 comments)

I quit listening to Pandora a couple of years ago. I got damned tired of the audio/video commercials.

You can't escape commercials. The TV Channel is now showing 20-minute programs in a 36-minute time slot. And what fills those extra 16 minutes? COMMERCIALS, of course.

I listen to most of my music on YouTube, but I'm about ready to give YouTube the finger also. Why? COMMERCIALS, of course.

Is New York City Ready For Digital Voting?

Porchroof Rig an election? (93 comments)

Politicians would like nothing better than to rig elections in their favor. And the easiest way to do that is to have the elections conducted over the Internet.

We're already in the process of losing our democracy to socialists and communists in the federal government. We don't need to accelerate the process by going digital.

NASA Wants New Space Net To Sustain Big Data Dumps; Moon and Mars Trips

Porchroof Net? (63 comments)

"NASA Wants New Space Net To Sustain Big Data Dumps; Moon and Mars Trips"

I thought this thread was about a huge net in space, but turns out to be about a network.

Note to headline writer: there is a difference between the meanings of "net" and "network".

Ask Slashdot: Spoof an Email Bounce With Windows?

Porchroof Re:Can't have your cake and eat it too. (244 comments)

Don't you people ever get tired of the Linux vs. Windows pillow fight?

Most people use Windows because it is very functional and there are more application programs written for it than for Linux or any other operating system.

Get over it, Linux people. Windows is here to stay and Linux will never be more popular than it is.
