U.S. Imposes Tariffs On Chinese Solar Cells

Schnoogs Re:Yes, it will raise prices (345 comments)

"Libertarians think they're getting freedom by eliminating the government. They're just getting corporate slavery" Was gonna post something about Socialists and Libtards but then I realized everyone already knows how idiotic those belief systems are and creating one more "quote" would simply be beating a dead horse. What a fucking moron

Why Apple's Next Revolution Should Be In Your Car

Schnoogs Wait...what was Apple's last revolution? (293 comments)

They didn't invent the computer, music player, phone or tablet. So what was their first revolution? Magic? Black Turtlenecks? A fanbase comprised of idiotic sheep?

Schnoogs What an idiotic article (416 comments)

Scripted sequences exist for a reason and some of the greatest games ever used them heavily. This is like saying hollywood should stop using the soundtrack.

Hungarian Officials Can Now Censor the Media

Schnoogs Remember this... (185 comments)

the next time some pseudo-intellectual libtard talks about how great Europe is while sipping on a Starbucks coffee paid for with unemployment between clichéd comments he/she will take the time to check for messages on their iPhone and to fantasize about owning the Prius parked out front.

Playstation 3 Code Signing Cracked For Good

Schnoogs Yawn... (534 comments)

who cares? When it comes to theft and larceny I tend to think of uneducated white or ghetto trash. The same goes for IP theft, etc. Circumventing the law is for idiots. Educated people don't do this. You think Einstein was boosting cars in his spare time? When was the last time a gang of PhD's held a liquor store at gunpoint? These guys are morons.
