Carefully Timed Jerks Could Power Space Elevator

Red Samurai Just give up already... (270 comments)

Why is everyone so obsessed with this terrible idea? Even if we got it to work, there's no way we'd be able to afford the maintenance and energy costs. It just isn't viable.

The Best Games of 2008

Red Samurai MGS4, no contest... (109 comments)

Anyone who's played through the whole series, start to finish, cannot deny that MGS4 deserves to be crowned this year's best game (I won't go in to why, as others have already done so in some detail). It won't win though, as most gamers will have never even played it because few even own a PS3, and that's tragic.

The Age of Touch Computing

Red Samurai Touch is a fad... (414 comments)

Is there even any evidence to suggest that touch is superior to standard input methods like the mouse? Would it raise productivity? I doubt it. In fact, I'd say it would do the opposite. Just because a solution is flashy and hi-tech, that doesn't make it superior. I'll stick with my keyboard and mouse.

Red Samurai (893134) writes "The BBC reports that 58 year-old James Pacenza is suing IBM for firing him after discovering that he used adult online chat rooms while at work. He issues the subpoena on the grounds that they were unsympathetic and offered no support towards his addiction, and he also uses his experiences in Vietnam to justify his actions. The BBC says this has "potential implications for employers across America and their attitude towards regulating how employees use workplace computers". So what does Slashdot make of this? I for one, welcome our new porn surfing IT worker overlords."

Red Samurai (893134) writes "The BBC reports that game designer Peter Molyneux plans to incorporate love into his latest project, Fable 2. In an interview, he says: "I need you to experience something in Fable that you as gamers have never experienced before". Wow, now us nerds won't even have to leave the house to find love. Excluding online dating, of course."
