RevSpaminator Paradoxes Be Damned (334 comments)

Astrophysicists have been saying this for years. The distances are too vast and velocities are just too limited.

The Cashless Society? It's Already Coming

RevSpaminator Re:Apple pay already lost... (375 comments)

Apple, choose exclusivity over the larger market? When has that ever been a problem for them? :)

RevSpaminator I'll Believe It When I See It (375 comments)

Hell, I'm still waiting for flying cars, art deco robots and my vacation home on Venus.

How Apple Watch Is Really a Regression In Watchmaking

RevSpaminator Re:I thought Apple was innovative (415 comments)

I used to have an old WWII "hack" watch (the second hand could be set to sync time accurately). It was complete with old radium painted face. That thing was tough as hell.

RevSpaminator Re:Better question: (415 comments)

You might have me there, but when looking to replace a lost copy of the DMG, one has to be VERY specific. :)

How Apple Watch Is Really a Regression In Watchmaking

RevSpaminator Re:It's APPLE. And it's GAY. (415 comments)

We do have to come up with a better word than "GAY" to describe things that are unnecessarily frilly, froofy and effeminate. How people love really has nothing to do with it.

How Apple Watch Is Really a Regression In Watchmaking

RevSpaminator Re:I really don't understand smart watches... (415 comments)

5) You can have class and style and look a hell of a lot better for a lot less money. You just won't look like a trendy fanboi.

How Apple Watch Is Really a Regression In Watchmaking

RevSpaminator Re:Better question: (415 comments)

Nerdlinger? Nothing nerdy about this device. A nerdy device would have an expansion port and, possibly, an open chip socket. The OS would be definitely be user-flashable. This is a wanna-be device all the way. Remember, real nerds play First Edition rules. :)

How Apple Watch Is Really a Regression In Watchmaking

RevSpaminator Re:How big a fuss is it, really? (415 comments)

Years ago, when I wore watches, they had to be waterproof because I never took them off. One less thing to have to f' with in the morning.

The Secret Goldman Sachs Tapes

RevSpaminator Re:Total bullshit (201 comments)

I fail to see the bullshit here. Are you saying the tapes are fakes? Please contribute rational statements instead of ad hominem attacks.

FBI Chief: Apple, Google Phone Encryption Perilous

RevSpaminator Re:And thus the balance shifts. (354 comments)

You notice lately how serious security flaws in widely used open source libraries have been exposed lately? Google brought the openSSL issue to light and bash's vulnerability was exposed by RedHat. I wonder if there isn't a new push to lock down the obvious back doors.

FBI Chief: Apple, Google Phone Encryption Perilous

RevSpaminator Re:Forgot some. (354 comments)

I'm pretty sure the Bolsheviks were in there somewhere. Or was it the Martians? (They're all commies too, ya know. Why do you think they call it the RED planet?)

FBI Chief: Apple, Google Phone Encryption Perilous

RevSpaminator Re:Think of the Constitution?! (354 comments)

What are you, some kind of godless communist? Next thing I suppose you'll expect is the right of free speech and free assembly. We spent decades fighting the Bolsheviks just to have a bunch of lilly livered liberals whining about human rights and personal liberty? What is this world coming to?

Once Vehicles Are Connected To the Internet of Things, Who Guards Your Privacy?

RevSpaminator Ever See A Commie Drink A Glass Of Water? (130 comments)

Anyone who believes the government shouldn't be tracking their every move is probably a godless communist and sympathetic with the former Soviet Union.

Google Fiber: No Charge For Peering, No Fast Lanes

RevSpaminator Re:We don't make money from peering or colocation (238 comments)

I'm sure Google is monitoring everything subscribers do on their network but it would be naive to think other providers don't. You just pay less for the privilege. As far as I'm concerned, if Google wants to come to my town I'd gladly volunteer to dig ditches on weekends to help run the cabling. :)
