SilentSage Worst civil rights record in history (622 comments)

Can any of you seriously defend the civil rights record of this president? Anything GW Bush did with the patriot act (Obama actually strengthened it) pales in comparison to the jackboot Obama has on the throat of the American people.

Police Seize Computers From Gizmodo Editor

SilentSage Thats what they get for screwing Gray Powell (1204 comments)

When they posted the Apple Engineer's name and screen shots of his facebook page complete with picture I lost all sympathy for those bastards. Maybe a year in pound me in the ass prison is bad but afterwards he will go on a damn book tour like some kind of hippie hero. Meanwhile Gray Powell's life will still be ruined.

Gizmodo Blows Whistle On 4G iPhone Loser

SilentSage Protecting your sources (853 comments)

This guy is not only a grade A bastard he should be trusted even less than the person who coughed up the I-phone. The kid who leaked the I-phone did it on accident. He was careless. Gizmodo intentionally burned their source even going so far as to post screen caps of his facebook page and his picture on one of the most widely read tech blogs on the internet. Not even the lowest of tabloids will reveal a source like Gizmodo did. Gizmodo in general should be shunned and that bastard Jesus Diaz in specific should be fired and no media outlet should ever hire him again.

An App Store For iPhone Software

SilentSage No 3G Data means store will be crippled anyway (531 comments)

Since the I-phone is not 3G capable (read far slower than dialup transfer rates) you had better be near a wi-fi hotspot or plugged into your computer to get all these new apps. Also since you cant change the battery in the handset, if you are at a hotspot forget using the phone or bluetooth unless you want your battery to die in like 10 minutes. Except for visual voicemail which is very cool and safari which is useless anyway because of the over the air data transfer rates the I-phone is overpriced, overhyped and under performing in every metric that a smartphone can be. I am not drinking the kool-aid on this one.
