China Demonstrates 25+ Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Sheen Re:copies .... (97 comments)

J-10 looks like a rafale copy and C919 - is - a an airbus copy ... and one of the drones showed looks to be a perfect copy of an american drone .... It seems western countries are stolen from China. I think China has enough brains not to stole from other countries.

No, i think china stole from the west.

Sprint's $199 HTC EVO 4G Gets Release Date of June 4

Sheen Re:Buzzkill (182 comments)

Yeap, with then new regulations in place, like they have to type out how much the total cost is ( in at letters no smaller then 1/3rd of the largest letter in ad etc), you can buyout at any time, minus the money you've payed so far ( if you are 1/3rd into your contract, you subtract 1/3 of your original price ). Consumer agencies let us know about the possibilites and educate the dumb.
We all know that most slashdotters can do simple math, but not everyone cares about technology or contracts. Or the fact that 2+2=5.

Norwegian Court Rules ISP Doesn't Have To Block The Pirate Bay

Sheen Re:I'm thinking about moving to Norway (154 comments)

I do not know where in norway you live, but what you describe...doesnt sound like the same country i live in, here in western norway ( bergen ) people push the speedlimit, average speed on a 80 kph highway is about 85, police wont bother you until you're over 90-95. The same city in question, has historicly been a major trading city, even before americas was discovered ( Hanseatic League 1200 AD->), and is still one of the most visited ports in the world, in trade and in tourism. There has also been allot of cultural trade ever since the vikings headed over to England to have some fun. The food. You can basicly get the exact same food here, that you can get in every other european country, and the food is -cheaper- in norway, then in any other country in europe, if you compare it with the wages we get here. ( you make about 23us$ an hour working at Mcdonalds.) So offcourse food has to be expencive, people who work at slaughterhouses and shops needs to get payed too. If you dont like that you can make 60 000 us$ a year working at McDonalds, while you as a MD make about 100 000us$ a year , too bad, move back to US where there are more social differences, and therefore, crime. Cant even understand why you would live here, if it bothers you that much.

Sheen Background info on Telenor (154 comments)

I would like to add some information about Telenor. Telenor is state owned, 54% of the shares belong to the people/Norwegian state. They have close to 200 million customers worldwide. So this is a big operator in the Telecom world. They have about 43 000 employees. Today, I am proud to be Norwegian.
