Hands-On With Intel's "Next Unit of Computing" Mini PC

SolidAltar Re:No wired... (177 comments)

Holy shit. I just realized you're right. There's no wired network port.

You kidding me, Intel? You want me to pay ~$500 for a computer without a network port? Who do you think you are, Apple?

AT&T Leaks Emails Addresses of 114,000 iPad Users

SolidAltar Re:Goatse Security (284 comments)

The funniest part of this entire story is that news organizations are either completely clueless as to what Goatse is, or refuse to mention it.

But some people are going to google it anyway.

The person who leaked this is a true internet superhero.

SolidAltar Is the UK broken or something? (183 comments)

What is wrong with the UK? All I ever see are stories about another stupid thing you guys are doing.
Not trolling. Think about it. Slashdot is like 7% stories about stupid privacy/internet stories from the UK.

Just because it's a democracy doesn't mean people care about freedom. People vote in dictators all the time.

SolidAltar Re:Like many fads, (221 comments)

"Like internet censorship too will never last."

Censorship will exist as long as either

1.) There are governments with secrets to hide
2.) ZOMG SAVE TEH CHILDREN

I forsee neither of these going away anytime soon. As in, Ever.
