FCC Fights To Maintain Indecency Policy

SirRedTooth Democratic. (602 comments)

I think it should be up to the people to decide whats indecent or not. If enough people complain the FCC should be called into action. Or we could simply use a 'vote with your feet' system, the result of this would be some TV channels with very strict guidelines appealing to the strict families with young children. And other TV channels with varying degrees of nudity and profanity. As our culture evolves our idea of whats indecent and what isn't changes so there shouldn't be a organisation deciding for everybody else what should and shouldn't be shown on TV.

Gaming Foursquare With 9 Lines of Perl

SirRedTooth Re:SPHREAKING (84 comments)

Then the people who abuse the demographics see a amazing opportunity, they are the only ones who can differentiate the distorted and real data. So they can use their unique knowledge to put themselves ahead of the game. Assuming there is only one group of people distorting the data in a certain region. Anyway, who cares if some company knows i like mint ice cream. Or that I like to go jogging from 4pm - 7pm. As long as they dont bug my bathroom and take pictures of me in the shower I really don't care. Actually it would be quite nice to have products that suit me a bit more than ones on the market already. Whats the big deal? I already disclose a huge amount of information about myself to colleges, friends and partners so why should I go all ape shit when somebody tries to find out whether people in my village like tea or coffe.

We can still fire objects into planets at faster than light speed. Theoretically. (You know the whole move space but not the object thing?)

Microsoft's Ad Team Trumps IE Developers' Privacy Aims

SirRedTooth Who cares (149 comments)

I dont care if microsoft know my browsing habits. As long as they don't publish the websites I visit together with my name and address I really do not care if im being tracked. If I ever want to do anything under the radar I know how, but I have never been in that situation.

Google Adds Licensing Server DRM To Android Market

SirRedTooth Re:Building up Android (184 comments)

90% of developers are not happy working for nothing. They want money to feed themselves and their families. Its ludicrous to expect a highly educated workforce to work for absolutely nothing. Why is it that you expect apps to be free and not food or electricity?

UK Government Rejects Calls To Upgrade From IE6

SirRedTooth Re:Frosty Pizzo? (233 comments)

Indeed. How hard can it be for a multi-billion pound company to make a browser that follows W3C rules. It really is beyond me how IE can fail so badly.

How Should a Non-Techie Learn Programming?

SirRedTooth Re:In my opinion (346 comments)

i first learned HTML + CSS (which arguably isn't programming) Then I moved onto PHP and MySQL And finally JavaScript Learning C++ first in my opinion was a pain I tried looking it at it before I started programming at all and I was utterly confused (I was only 14 :D) But now I can easily grasp C++ thanks to all my experience with PHP and JavaScript

1-in-1,000 Chance of Asteroid Impact In ... 2182?

SirRedTooth Re:I'll probably be dead by then, right? (326 comments)

Not only you. The whole human species would be extinct by then. We have global warming, pollution, fuel shortage, wars, corruption. These are enough to finish us by 2100. What happens in 2182 is irrelevant.

Not really. The human race started off as a primitive ape like species. We managed to survive living in jungles, deserts and caves. How is "global warming, pollution, fuel shortage, wars, corruption" going to kill ~7bn people. Sure it might kill 3 billion or even 4 billion at the very worst (which is still unlikely) But there is no way any of the things you mentioned will kill every single human being.

Intel Co-Founder Calls For Tax On Offshored Labor

SirRedTooth Re:Grove is correct. with no CPU production here. (565 comments)

I think he is referring to the USA rather than his own company. His excuse for using offshore labour is that he needs to do it to remain competitive. When are people going to realise that countries don't matter that much any more in the 21st century. We are all part of the same community and we all benefit from advanced in technology wherever they happen.

Anti-Ageing Drink Discovered

SirRedTooth SirRedTooth writes  |  more than 4 years ago

SirRedTooth (1785808) writes "A North Korean fruit juice company claims to have produced an anti-ageing drink that:
"protects skin from wrinkles and black spots and prevents such geriatric diseases as cerebral haemorrhage, myocardium and brain infarction by removing acid effete matters in time."

Apparently "The drink has no side-effect.""

Missing link in electronics found.

SirRedTooth SirRedTooth writes  |  more than 4 years ago

SirRedTooth (1785808) writes "HP announced they have found the missing link in electronics the 'Memristor', which has the capability to store and process data at the same time.
The idea was first proposed 40 years ago, but only fabricated in 2008.

Professor Leon Chua compared the devices to the human brain's synapses and axons."
