RIAA: Google Failing To Demote Pirate Websites

Rasit Re:I think they have a point (165 comments)

People are using google to find their way to sites like google.com and facebook.com. Using the searchbar to find a legal download of a album is not so far fetched.

Where Do You Go When Google Locks You Out?

Rasit Re:I have a similar problem with gmail (332 comments)

The periods don't get stripped out, but you can add them (and probably remove them) wherever you like and they'll still get sent to the correct account. If someone has the account abc@gmail.com, then no one can register another account called a.b.c@gmail.com because gmail views them as the same.

Gmail silently ignores the periods in addresses, this means that these addresses all leads to the same mailbox.

Why Users Drop Open Source Apps For Proprietary Alternatives

Rasit Re:Difficulty In Using (891 comments)

Because it is so clear on Microsoft website which of the four editions includes Remote Desktop functionality.

I hope you are sarcastic. It took me 5 second to find it.

  1. Hit ctrl + f
  2. Type "remote"
  3. read the text in the mouseover.
  4. Look at the chart

They really can't make it any easier to find.

Given the existence of a usb port, what is stopping students from sharing single textbooks?

DRM of course! There is no way that hardware copyprotection can be broken.

DRM is the herald of a multitude of new business innovations! All hail the mighty Consumer Restriction Application Protection.

Norton Users Worried By PIFTS.exe, Stonewalling By Symantec

Rasit Re:law enforcement back door (685 comments)

People are claiming this is a analysis of PIFTS.exe. I have no way to verify that this really is the norton PIFTS.exe so keep that in mind.

Changes security settings of Internet Explorer: This system alteration could seriously affect safety surfing the World Wide Web.


Performs File Modification and Destruction: The executable modifies and destructs files which are not temporary.


Performs Registry Activities: The executable reads and modifies register values. It also creates and monitors register keys.

Alaskans Prepare For Volcanic Eruption

Rasit Re:Simpsons? (293 comments)

I'm pretty sure the goggles tag is a reference to the simpsons. I'm wondering if that episode is famous enough to warrant a meme or if its just because it was the one they showed last night.

The googles, they do nothing! = 239,000 results.
The goggles do nothing = 325,000 results.

I think that it qualifies to be called a internet meme.

I have to admit that the first thing I did upon reading that was to click the link to see if the server really was down. *hangs head in shame*

Belkin's President Apologizes For Faked Reviews

Rasit Re:I enjoy at least 1 Belkin product (137 comments)

When I got mine, I thought the LCD would be useless, but it turns out to be the best part in practice.

Same thing here.

When I broke my G15 I figured I might as well satisfy my do-it-myself itch it and build a detachable miniature lcd display with some basic winamp/media controls.

Just being able to see my mail inbox count or the last lines from PuTTy (perfect during long scripts) while having a fullscreen app running is wonderful.

RIAA Walks Away From Another "Discovery" Case

Rasit Re:Pity the (2) fools. (164 comments)

It is even more fun now that you can vote up/down certain search result. I already voted your site up, I wonder how many votes it would take to get your site above theirs.

Palin Email Hacker Found

Rasit Re:This Just In (767 comments)

If the general public were half as smart as we give them credit for the world would have never seen Napoleian, Cesar (well actually the Romans solved that problem on their own), Castro, Hugo Chavez and more.

The others are fair enough, but what's dog food got to do with it?

Dog food? Didnt his whispering work?
