Seagate Bulks Up With New 8 Terabyte 'Archive' Hard Drive

SensitiveMale Ok, let's hear all the stories how Seagate sucks (219 comments)

and then let's hear about how it's all anecdotal evidence.

Then someone will bring out the backblaze survey.

Then someone will say "They've never had a problem with Seagate, but WD sucks."

Then someone will lament how IBM no longer makes drives. Then the deskstar stories will start.

In other words, the same responses every time a hard drive story is posted.

CIA Lied Over Brutal Interrogations

SensitiveMale Re:This partisan "report" was released for one rea (769 comments)

It wasn't released before the election because it is an unpopular partisan football. It wasn't released before the election because it would have cost the dems votes. Since they've already lost control of the senate they have to release it now before they lose control of the senate. Again, you're missing the point of why was this released now? Do you think that this report just happened to be finished at the end of November? Don't be naive. This report has been declassified since July. This report was released because as a lame duck dem senate there is nothing for them to lose.

Feinstein, along with Pelosi and other democrats, knew this was going on. They were briefed AS IT WAS HAPPENING. Was anyone in the CIA or anyone involved in these interrogations interviewed? NOPE. That should tell you everything right there.

The "flamebait" mod was bullshit because my comment was political. My comment was political because this report along with the timing of it's release was purely political. Again look who wrote the report, when it was ready, when it was released, and who was ignored.

CIA Lied Over Brutal Interrogations

SensitiveMale Re:This partisan "report" was released for one rea (769 comments)

Releasing this report for purely political reasons does. People can mod my original post as flamebait but that's bullshit. Why wasn't the report released before now? Why now? Why wasn't ANYONE in the program interviewed to be included in the report? Why are all of the dems that were in congress saying they knew nothing about this when it was proven that they were included in the briefings?

Look, you may not like what was done. I can respect that. But releasing this report for pure political reasons is inexcusable.

CIA Lied Over Brutal Interrogations

SensitiveMale As for the people who say "XXX kills more than..." (769 comments)

terrorists, stop being an idiot. Richard Reid tried to light a shoe bomb and didn't kill anyone, yet let at all of the trouble and hassle EVERYONE who flies has to go through now. It isn't always about death. It's also about our way of life. How much money do you think is being spent to find explosives on persons who fly?

So stop saying "More people are killed by albino left-handed sharks than terrorists because that isn't the point."

CIA Lied Over Brutal Interrogations

SensitiveMale This partisan "report" was released for one reason (769 comments)

A final democrat "Fuck You" to President Bush. That's the only reason. You think it was coincidence that this report is released just before the dems lose control of the Senate and won't be able to release it next year? This "report" is unbelievably slanted and only contains one side.

The democrats have done nothing but put a nation and a lot of people's lives at risk for nothing. And no, Graham isn't a republican. He says he is, but he isn't.

A Smart Electric Bike: Taking the Copenhagen Wheel Out For a Spin

SensitiveMale Re:what's the point? (136 comments)

I don't see the point of all this electronics or intelligence in a bicycle. If anything, the location tracking means that bicycles now also are starting to invade my privacy.

Or my bivacy, if you know what I mean.

Apple's Next Hit Could Be a Microsoft Surface Pro Clone

SensitiveMale The Surface Pro is an awesome machine (252 comments)

You can buy a surface pro 1st gen with 128GB memory for @ $300 now. While the interface isn't perfect, it comes in really handy having a tablet that is a real PC with real PC speeds & not some atom CPU speed.

Could Maroney Be Prosecuted For Her Own Hacked Pictures?

Could Maroney Be Prosecuted For Her Own Hacked Pictures?

SensitiveMale Re:You are DAMN RIGHT she should be charged (274 comments)

Nope, my argument is "creating child pornography is a crime." It should be prosecuted whether a 40 year old creates child porn or a 14 year old creates child porn.

I understand that if the police are investigating me for whatever reason and they happen to see that a phone number that has never called me and I have never called sent me a 14 year sexting pic, eventually they'll come to the conclusion that it was sent by accident. HOWEVER, until they reach that conclusion, they'll investigate every aspect of my life, confiscate every computer and phone I own, inadvertently or not leak that child porn was found in my possession (years ago won't matter), and maybe find something else completely unrelated that they may prosecute me with.

You're missing the point that teenager is creating something that is so toxic that it could effectively destroy the life of anyone that happens to see it. Who makes it doesn't matter.

Could Maroney Be Prosecuted For Her Own Hacked Pictures?

SensitiveMale You are DAMN RIGHT she should be charged (274 comments)

This is something that has always bothered me. If a teenager is sexting her boyfriend or girlfriend and they happen to get the number number and send a pic to me, I have child porn on my phone. It doesn't matter how it got there. It doesn't matter how fast I delete it. If there ever happens to be any investigation of me for any reason and they check my SMS messages at the phone company, the cops will see it and now they have a reason to investigate every aspect of my life, confiscate every computer I have, and generally fuck me over.

Teenagers sexting is paying with fire and can destroy completely innocent lives.

Yes, I get the inevitable joke "So that's how you're saying that picture got there."

Enthusiast Opts For $2200 Laser Eye Surgery To Enhance Oculus Rift Experience

SensitiveMale Best $4400 I've ever spent in my life (109 comments)

I underwent LASIK 14 years ago and I recommend it to everyone. If the OC is what convinced him to do it, great. He should have done it years ago.

Marvel's New Thor Will Be a Woman

SensitiveMale Re:I bet this is part of the whole "Sif & Warr (590 comments)

Well yes and no. They could sell all of their trademarks and IP for $10 and that would be making money. Shoving something out just for a short term gain isn't always the best plan.

Marvel's New Thor Will Be a Woman

SensitiveMale I bet this is part of the whole "Sif & Warrior (590 comments)

I think Marvel & Paramount really wanted to push Sif & the warriors 3 into a spin off. The problem was they were a bunch of pussies in the first Thor and they were even weaker in the second. This is a a blatant money grab and a not very original one.

Marvel's New Thor Will Be a Woman

SensitiveMale Re:Pussy whipped bullshit (590 comments)

Better than someone with so little mental fortitude that they going into a bawling rage over a slight casting change on a comic-book they don't even read.

I don't think a comment of "sad" qualifies as a "bawling rage" and I don't think "a staple of the Marvel Universe and Norse mythology" being changed into a woman is "slight."

Theater Chain Bans Google Glass

SensitiveMale I'm stunned at the tone deafness of these people (376 comments)

These glassholes, for lack of a better term, walk around and act like they are shocked when others don't want a camera on them all of the time.

It is just like if someone walked around holding their phone/camcorder/camera in front of him all of the time and was pointing it everywhere he looked. No one wants that. These glassholes act as they have some sort of inalienable right and if someone complains then their civil liberties have been violated by a glassist.
