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

SensitiveMale The Surface Pro is an awesome machine (247 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?

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.

The Ethics Cloud Over Ballmer's $2 Billion B-Ball Buy

SensitiveMale Re:Racism or Thought Police? (398 comments)

Further, it's absolutely absurd to say that he's being unfairly characterized as racist due to "one minute of [his] private speech".

But I didn't say that.

Sure, he had a history or winning and losing such cases. I'm not saying he wasn't a racist. But that behavior was KNOWN by the NBA & NAACP and overlooked. This is about the tape.

The Ethics Cloud Over Ballmer's $2 Billion B-Ball Buy

SensitiveMale Re:Racism or Thought Police? (398 comments)

Yeah, but privacy and free speech and all that only applies if you're saying politically-correct stuff. The second you say "nigger" or even mildly criticize some protected group YOU MUST BE DESTROYED!!!!!

That's the odd thing. Sterling didn't even use a slur.From what I understood of the tape, he didn't even have a problem with minorities. He told his girlfriend that she could sleep with anyone she wanted. Again, no slurs. Just don't brag about her boyfriends on Instragram or bring them to the game in public.

He didn't tell his ticket sellers not to sell to minorities. He didn't use any slurs. He employed, from what I understand was a general consensus, the worst GM in the NBA for over 20 years who happened to be a minority. He hired a minority coach.

He was illegally recorded and punished for something he said in the privacy of his own home, not for something he did. Not to mention he was goaded. Listen to the tape. She knew what she wanted him to say and she kept at it until he said it.

This is very scary stuff because there isn't one person alive who wouldn't be ostracized, using this ruler, if a select one minute of their private speech was made public.

The Ethics Cloud Over Ballmer's $2 Billion B-Ball Buy

SensitiveMale Re:pishaw (398 comments)

What property did he "forfeit" by the way? He didn't lose anything - he SOLD his property on the market for $2.2 billion.

Let's see you own something so rare that only 30 other people in the world own and be forced to sell it. See if you think that isn't losing property.

If he's got a problem with his private conversation being recorded, then he needs to sue whoever recorded and leaked it.

What good would that do? He can't get the team back and she can't compensate what he's lost.

The 69 Words GM Employees Can Never Say

SensitiveMale You can thank legal for that. (373 comments)

Years ago, I remember reading an interview with a GM former employee and he talked about advances in safety. He said, paraphrasing, that GM discovered hundreds of ways each year to improve safety related equipment through R&D and testing, but lawyers prevented from implementing the changes. The lawyers reasoned that the older equipment still passed safety regulations and implementing the improved equipment could open GM to legal action.

Actual Results of Crimean Secession Vote Leaked

SensitiveMale Re:well (557 comments)

Florida resides in two time zones and the northwest "handle" of Florida is heavily Republican. Many voters left lines while voting was open once Florida was called for Gore. IF that hadn't have happened, the recount wouldn't have been close at all.

Having lived in the Panhandle, I very seriously doubt that people who left the lines were Republican. We used to have the term "Yellow Dog Democrat", meaning that the person in question would vote for a yellow hound dog rather than a Republican, but that was back when Democrats were the Party of the (white conservative) South. Before they all started calling themselves Republicans.

In other words, I think that the Panhandle Republicans would have cheerfully stood in line until the next morning if there was even the faintest moonshine of a hope that it would keep an evul Librul tree-hugger like Gore from taking the White House.

Being curious, I did a quick search and found this graphic http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election_in_Florida,_2000 The panhandle is heavily Republican.

I agree with you 100% about the panhandle Republicans cheerfully standing in line to prevent Gore from winning. But that isn't what happened. All of the news outlets had projected Gore to win. So the people who were waiting in line thought "Why bother waiting if the election in Florida is over"?
