Connecticut Group Wants Your Violent Videogames — To Destroy Them

Randwulf Promote Compassion, Instead! (449 comments)

I recommend they (and all of us):
1. promote awareness of the suffering and needs of others, and
2. promote compassion, kindness, consideration, gratitude and charity,
3. promote awareness of own behavior, the outcomes of our own actions.

"Sow A Compassionate Thought, Reap A Compassionate World
Sow A Compassionate Thought, Reap A Compassionate Action;
Sow A Compassionate Action, Reap A Compassionate Habit;
Sow A Compassionate Habit, Reap A Compassionate Example;
Sow A Compassionate Example, Reap A Compassionate World."

Ouya Dev Consoles Ship, SDK Released

Randwulf Sealed Box? I don't know about that. (169 comments)

Watch the video carefully. It seems there are long but thin vents that run from corner to corner in the removable top / lid around 1:59 and 2:03. Also, I'm not certain, but it looks like there may be small slit vents near the bottom in a circular pattern at 2:08

Google Explores Re-Ranking Search Results Using +1 Button Data

Randwulf Multi-Algorithm? (126 comments)

Google has had a number of algorithms to rank search results over the years. Some people liked some better than others. Why not have one default algorithm, but also have alternate algorithms (including one that takes into account +1 data) as part of their Advanced Search options? That way I can try Algorithm #2 or 3 if Algorithm #1 isn't giving the results I want.

Hulu For Sale: Is There Good News For Users?

Randwulf Re:Google, Please Buy Hulu! (473 comments)

Hmmm. Maybe it's the high-definition? I usually let the buffer load before playing to prevent interruptions. Besides that, I haven't had much problem.

Hulu For Sale: Is There Good News For Users?

Randwulf Re:Google, Please Buy Hulu! (473 comments)

They are, but I don't how well that is going. Barely any buzz about it (as far as I can tell), and from what I've seen the hardware is pricey. Hulu, on the other hand, is popular and users don't need to spend a few hundred dollars to use it.

Hulu For Sale: Is There Good News For Users?

Randwulf Google, Please Buy Hulu! (473 comments)

I have no clue if they're interested, but I hope Google buys it. I like Hulu and I like Google. And, Google has done a decent job with YouTube.

Stars Remain In Their Usual Places; People Panic

Randwulf Tropical Astrology vs Sidereal Astrology (468 comments)

There has been a lot of talk about Astrology, lately. Some people seem to have become distraught over their "sign changing" (even though it really hasn't).

There is a difference between Tropical Astrology and Sidereal Astrology. Tropical Astrology ( ) has the 12 Zodiac signs we are all used to.

Sidereal Astrology ( ) does things differently. It has 13 Zodiac Signs and different dates for each sign. It's not really new, and it's certainly not any more real than the Tropical Astrology. Simply ignore it and nothing really changes.

Ubuntu Powered Tablet Spotted!

Randwulf Re:Already others on the market (169 comments)

I have an Always Innovating Touch Book. It currently boots (a stripped down) Ubuntu Desktop 10.10, Android Froyo, and AIOS. It's expected to be able to run Chrome OS in the future, too. The software is still half-baked, however. Ubuntu wasn't actually running on it until a few months ago. I'm a little surprised they didn't use Ubuntu Netbook, but I suspect that may change in the future.

Microsoft Ups Online War, Says Google's 'Failing'

Randwulf Chrome OS (220 comments)

I don't much care what Microsoft has to say about anything. What I am curious about is how much Chrome OS will cut into Windows market share once it is finally launched. I don't want speculation -- wake me up when there are some solid numbers.
