Car Window Touchscreens

SudoGhost Re:First post from a car window! (125 comments)

You'd have to be careful where you drive though. Wouldn't want to be driving downtown and have your child's window start pointing out all the hookers and drug dealers, encouraging your child to point at them.

Sheikh Carves His Name In Desert So It's Visible From Space

SudoGhost Re:First Post (336 comments)

According to the scale on Google Maps, the name appears to be only one mile long, not two...what's with the discrepancy there, is Google Maps just off?

Carmack Addresses FPS Creativity Concerns

SudoGhost Re:Still doesnt excuse (280 comments)

I don't think you quite understood. One can be similar without being a clone. Halo is not a Doom clone, nor is it a clone with a twist. Nor was it something completely new. What I was getting at is most indie games try to go to the extremes of one or the other.

Carmack Addresses FPS Creativity Concerns

SudoGhost Re:Still doesnt excuse (280 comments)

To be fair though, if I see one more indie tower defense game, I'm going to scream (queue the screams). Most indie games seem to take one approach or the other, either be a clone, or be completely different than anything else (or a clone with a *twist*! that might as well be a clone).

Apple Wants To Block Some HTC Products From US Under Tariff Act of 1930

SudoGhost Re:Apple sees the writing on the wall.. (297 comments)

Right. Because there's no way to store the apps on the SD card. Android devices don't need HOURS of work, drama queen. When you boot up your phone, it installs the apps. When you plug in the SD card, the data is there. You'd have to go out of your way to mess that up. Being a software engineer is about as generic a term as "I work in IT", and it's clear your knowledge does not go into mobile devices. That gets you nothing, stop embarrassing yourself.

Actually, he probably didn't need to click anything. Swap the SD card (not that you'd know what that is) and enter your email address. The phone will automatically start downloading and installing your apps, and your music/photos/etc. are on your SD. No computer required.

Military Drone Attacks Are Not 'Hostile'

SudoGhost Re:Of Course Drone Attacks Are Hostile (892 comments)

Attacking an enemy in any way puts US troops at risk from enemy action, it doesn't matter if they aren't there for that one particular incident. It's not like the enemy is going to see some US troops the next day and go "Meh, they weren't even there. Not their fault."

Burden of proof goes both ways, and neither "side" seems to have any.

Activists Destroy Scientific GMO Experiment

SudoGhost Re:GMO scientists, who do you think you are? (1229 comments)

The "article" calls them "peaceful protesters". Isn't destroying property considering vandalism? Considering the value of the crops, wouldn't that also be considered a pretty serious felony? I admit I don't know how the courts work over there, but that seems like a pretty serious crime.

Preliminary Benchmarks: Unity vs. Gnome-Shell

SudoGhost Re:hmm but linux doesn't crash (258 comments)

And I haven't had to post as an Anonymous Coward since I registered. Maybe you just don't know how to log in. Actually I'm sure you're just not a people person. Now get this odd saying that only I get over to that place, you know the one.

Apple Sues Amazon.com Over App Store Trademark

SudoGhost Re:If you don't want your trademark used ... (285 comments)

I was always under the impression it was called the iTunes App Store. Although I realize my opinion has no weight in the larger scheme of things, I'd see a problem if Amazon called it the aTunes App Store or something...but App Store in the American vocabulary does not mean iTunes App Store. My mom calls the Android Market the app store. I don't see anyone getting confused, as most people call any application distribution platform an app store.

And by the way, Google's app store is called the Android Market, which is very specific, and leaves no confusion about what it is. Amazon can open a 'market' or an 'amazon market' but they can't open an Android Market.

Apple Sues Amazon.com Over App Store Trademark

SudoGhost Re:App is generic (285 comments)

Windows is a generic term in certain uses. You can call the underlying x window system a 'window', and multiples of it 'windows'. You cannot call your OS Windows. That's not the same. You're comparing Apples and Oranges (pardon my pun).

Google Voice Teams Up With Sprint

SudoGhost Re:Virgin Mobile? (115 comments)

While GV doesn't have a desktop client, they do have an addon for Chrome which is quite useful, it allows you to use the browser to send and receive texts.

US Lawyers Target Swedish Pirate, and His Unicorn

SudoGhost Re:First, kill all the laywers (181 comments)

Actually this is their train of thought: If someone messes with us or tries to interfere with us, then let's make it as expensive, time consuming, and difficult for them as possible, and make knowledge of our actions public as possible, to set an example.
