New Apple MacBook Pro Reviewed

Smooth and Shiny Re:Uh oh (627 comments)

I say things like this and get modded "troll" around here. Funny... haha, fucking Apple fanboys. Sorry that your Gods at Apple, Inc. aren't everything you like to delude yourselves into thinking they are.

Quad Core, Thunderbolt In New MacBook Pros

Smooth and Shiny Awesome! (495 comments)

It will be nice to see them sell older (new for them, I guess) tech for insanely high prices as usual! I mean... the i7 has been around for, what? Four years or so now? Apple will undoubtedly sell them at the RELEASE prices, even though they are buying them for pennies on the dollar about now. GO GO TEAM APPLE!

Yes, I am aware that Apple fanboys will jump all over this and mod it down to hell, but I don't care if the truth hurts you. I mean, hahaha... $2,500 for four year old processors and nothing else new. Even still only running dual-channel for memory. Lame.

Google Rolls Out Chrome 7

Smooth and Shiny Chrome is okay, but... (292 comments)

Chrome is okay, but I hate the minimal control you have over things like cookies. It's either all or none with Chrome. Then you have the lack of a sidebar for bookmarks and the bookmark interface itself is very unintuitive at best. There are other gripes as well, but those can mostly be solved with using various extensions.

Other than that, I like Chrome for its speed.

Lucas Promises Star Wars on Blu-Ray in 2011

Smooth and Shiny Why? (420 comments)

Why? So he can change scenes and add shit that wasn't there in order to justify the later movies?

Just happen I have the original trilogy on VHS, untouched by Lucas' stupid "well, I really wanted it to play out this way" hands.

Abandon Earth Or Die, Warns Hawking

Smooth and Shiny Re:Yeah, but where does this get ME? (973 comments)

You are obviously not a Comcast customer. I have basic service with internet (no phone, no pay channels) access. In the last 3 years I have lost about a dozen channels I used to have access to and my bill has gone UP. I am now paying for the cheapest "digital" plan and cheapest internet and that is a $168/month bill for me. I am sure if you toss in pay channels and higher internet speeds you could get even higher.

Earth As an Extrasolar Planet

Smooth and Shiny Re:Not NASA (83 comments)

Astrophysicist Alfred Vidal-Madjar and colleagues at the Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris decided to test the idea...

Granted, NASA does have the firepower and crack soldiering skills necessary to invade and occupy Paris, but they haven't done it. (yet)

I am happy to know that NASA has soldiering skills. That means we will be able to fend off any alien invasion for sure!

I guess that whole "Due to the fact that the authorities aren't sharing information and BurstNet are sworn to secrecy..." part is considered talking about it now, eh?
